GUEST POST
It’s not about luck 

With Obsidian out in the world, I feel like I’ve finally arrived as an author. This is my second series and people in my circle are starting to take notice. A phrase I hear all the time is—“Wow, you’re so lucky that you get to follow your dreams.” That phrase is almost always followed with—“How do you do it?” 

Most people ask that question because in addition to writing and publishing books, I’m also a full time middle school math teacher. 

Here’s what my day typically looks like: 

4:30 am: Alarm goes off and I hit snooze. 
4:45 am: I get up, check my email and facebook notifications (most of which are book related). I take care of anything urgent and grab cup of hot chocolate. 
5:00 am: Head back to my room where I don’t have any Internet reception and write for two hours. 
7:00 am: Get ready for work 
7:45 am: Eat breakfast with my husband at this cute French cafĂ© close to my work. It’s rare time for us to sit and talk without any other distractions. 
8:15 am: Arrive at work, answer other emails and things that I couldn’t do in the wee hours of the morning. 
8:30 am: School starts. I teach math. And answer a lot of questions. 
Morning break/Lunch: Deal with more emails. If I have time, I work on marketing. 
4:00: Schools out—Time to start my marketing work. (This is complex and there’s a lot of it.) 
6:00: Arrive home. Make dinner and hang with my family. 
7:00: Watch crime dramas with my husband and teenagers. It’s my favorite part of the day because really it’s the only time I’m not working. 
8:30: Head to bed and read until I can’t keep my eyes open anymore, usually around 9:30 

And it starts all over again the next day. 

I will often work on book stuff all day on Saturdays as well. About once a month my husband will force me to go do something fun on a Saturday. And I love him for it. 

Sundays are my no work day. I’ll still check my emails and facebook, but that’s my day to go to church and spend time with my family. It’s my favorite day of the week. 

I know some people might wonder why I bother if it’s so much work. But I wouldn’t trade this work for anything. I love every second of it. I’m passionate about my books and publishing. I do it because I love sharing my stories with the world. For so many years they were stuck only in my head and now they are out there and people are reading them and to my great surprise, people like them. I hope you’ll check out my new book, Obsidian. It’s .99 cents for only a couple of weeks, so get your copy

What a life you lead! Your days are so full that you've got to be exhausted all the time. You must really love writing to fit that it will everything else.
