Stand Tall and Move On….

Never give up and never give in. No matter how hard the journey ahead maybe you never know what’s around the corner waiting for you. If you give in, you will never know what opportunities you’ve forsaken.

Sometimes there isn’t a direct route to our dream. At our most bleakness moments we must think about how far we have traveled. If you turn back because the journey isn’t what you hoped it would be, you’ve just missed the point of your destination.

A goal isn’t just the end of your dream, it’s the journey you’ve made to get there.

Today, I’m feeling a little chuffed with myself. Can’t believe I have 19 books on my Amazon Author’s Page.

And there’s more in the pipeline too.
This morning I received an email which will take me on another interesting journey into the darker side of my personality. I guess being a Gemini has it advantages.

Yesterday also brought an interesting proposition which I’m now working on. Both have help put my disappointment over my novel to the back of my mind, for the time being at least.

I hope one day to return to it and work on the edits, but at the moment I’ve got some shorter projects on the go. These will bring their own rewards in the ever changing publishing market.

Reader’s time is limited in this ever busy world, so there’s a big market for pocket novels, short stories and flash fiction.

Check out my books here

Have a great day.

    1. Thank you, Jim. One day I would love a novel with my name on the cover, but for now I shall focus on my short stories


      1. Keep up good work, Paula. You’ll get your novel published one day. And then another…and another…Who knows what the future will bring? Remember how long Stephen King waited until his first book was published. In the meantime he kept writing, just like you.
