Bad Dreams

I woke up this morning with the most vivid dream, well nightmare to be exact.

I have been so excited about when my book does come out, that I didn't even think about what people would think of it. I just figured it would do great and that was that. Right?.......Wrong!

Well in my dream, I was getting A TON of awful reviews and the feeling of getting them was just horrible:(  I just remember in my dream watching the reviews as they happen and getting 1 star out of 5 stars over and over again!! No Bueno!!

And now that I know that getting bad reviews can happen, and it will I'm sure, how do you as a writer cope with it? And if you're not a writer, how do you deal with rejection?  I have never handled rejection very well, and I don't know how I am going to deal if it, if and when it happens.

Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated...

Merry Christmakah!

Hello blogger peeps!

Merry Christmas. I hope everyone has enjoyed their Christmas and Hanukkah so far. I certainly have. My hubby and I had a deal that this year we would NOT exchange presents for each other and instead just focus on our son. We really just wanted to save our money, easy right?

Well.......I kept my side of the bargain.....Yup, my hubby did NOT. He got me a brand new laptop. Which I am using as we speak. Its beautiful, I gotta admit, and fast. Like REAL fast! I say this because my last laptop was circa 2004, I know ancient. Basically geriatric! It was so slow it took 10 minutes to load anything. And I guess I must have complained so much about it that my hubby just wanted to shut me up with a new one. Well I guess my constant nagging worked.....but now I just feel bad. Not about the complaining, no, that was necessary......I just feel bad about not getting anything for him for Christmas. In all fairness, I really should just be annoyed with him. I mean really, what nerve to go back on our deal. And who ends up looking like the bad guy now? ME! So not fair. But I can't be that mad, he got me a freaking brand new laptop!! And if I know my hubby as well as I do, I am sure he got a very good deal on it. Is he cheap? Yes, but I do love him for that, because I am too!

So I will just sit here and just enjoy my new laptop and say thanks. Maybe I'll get him a present next year.....well see....:)

New book in the making

I have started writing my second novel. This story also takes place in Hollywood. Unfortunately, I can't go into too much detail, it changes as I write it. But I can say, this book will be very juicy! Only in Hollywood!

Wish me luck:)

Hello everyone. I am a total newbie at this. I wish this blog looked better because I am not computer savvy. I will leave that for my hubby to figure out.

I recently wrote a book called Josie and the Hollywood Aristocrats. It's about a girl that becomes a personal assistant to a famous producer and his actress wife. Think The Devil Wears Prada.

And now that I have an agent, she has informed me that I need to do as much social media as I can. Well, I am on facebook, twitter and now I have this blog. I do have a website I have purchased, but me being computer illiterate, I don't know how to hook it up this blog. I will eventually figure it out.

As for my novel, this is something that I have been writing for the last three years. This may seem like a long time to alot of you but in my defensive, I had just had my baby, so the only time I had to write was when he was napping, which wasn't a lot. So three years later, I have a completed novel, an agent, and now several editors reading it. The hard part now is the waiting. But it's out of my hands. So while I wait, I facebook, twitter, and now blog! Gotta love social media.
