A rescheduling a day...

Seems like all I've done this year is schedule and reschedule stuff.  And, this week is no different.  After having to wait a few extra weeks for my Ireland immigration paperwork to be approved, I'm having to reschedule a book signing for this spring. 

Originally, I had planned on my second book signing to be on April 2nd at Taylor Books in Charleston, West Virginia, however, since I will be in Derry and not Charleston on April 2nd, I had to reschedule it.  I'll be back in Charleston on April 14th to pick up my fur babies so I've had to move the signing to April 23rd.  Same place (Taylor Books) and same time (1-3pm).  Bring a copy of Coincidence and come see me!

Neglect and Rejection

I think I've been neglecting this blog a little as I've started my second blog, Ireland Ever After.  I've been focused on getting it up and running that Yeah, Write has fallen to the wayside.  And, I have to say, I'm super stoked about Ireland Ever After...I've even received two Stylish Blogger Awards over there which I love!
Through Ireland Ever After and FTLOB's, I've met a fellow author, City Girl over at City Girl Chronicles.  She is working on getting a book published and I think I've helped her keep pushing to make that dream happen, which of course I'm happy to do.  It can be so overwhelming to be faced with so many rejection letters from agents and publishers.  In fact, it's enough to make you want to throw in the towel because you sometimes honestly believe that your writing is shit.  Why wouldn't you?  All these agents and publishers are basically telling you that. No, they don't use the word "shit", but it's still a rejection and they might as well say "it's shit." That's my opinion, anyway. 

City Girl mentioned that perhaps I could work on a posting that would detail what the publishing process is like and I am happy to do so, however it won't be right now.  As many of you know, I'm in the process of moving to Ireland to be with the old ball and chain, so my focus is on that.  I'll be there on March 4th and once I'm settled, I'll kick my bloggin' booty into gear!  So, for right now...I'm takin' a teeny break, but I'll be back! And, City Girl...lots of luck and writing dust to you!

Oh, and P.S...my book signing that was scheduled for April 2 at Taylor Books in Charleston, WV has to be rescheduled since I won't be in Charleston, WV on April 2.  I'll be back later in April, so stay tuned and I'll keep ya updated!
