"If there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it." Toni Morrison
My book, In the Eye of Deception, has been shortlisted for a literary award. It blew me away when I found out. I had struggled so much to write....and to tell. When I first started writing...I never imaged publishing a book. I just needed to release what was inside me. I wrote every day and late into the nights. I wrote in the third person.
And I went running, everyday..in the woods....alone - Fighting what I knew inside. I had to tell. I had to write the truth....to give hope to even one person...that nothing is impossible to overcome...and that Light can shine where darkness lived.
Guys, I 'm really sorry but I changed this post from the way I had it originally. I wasn't comfortable with how I wrote it. Some of you had left comments. Unfortunately all those comments disappeared too. I'm sorry. But please know I really appreciate everything you said and all your encouragement and support. You guys have helped me come through so much...
Happy New Year 2018 to Each & Everyone!!
