Pay it forward/Editor Cassandra Marshall

It took me a while, to realize many things in regards to avoiding a pile up of rejections one of which was finding a great editor to help me polish my novel(s) I am lucky I was referred to my editor Lynnette Labelle from the lovely National best-selling romance author Roni Loren. My first YA is progressing nicely and the cost of the edits works well with my budget(aspiring writers never quit your day job) Today while going back and forth from twitter and rewriting couple chapters Cassandra Marshall sent out a tweet regarding ways to promote her editorial services I sent a few ideas, she expressed her goal which is for writers to hire her which makes sense, so to pay it forward I have attached the links to her websites, check out her info if it works for you make the decision to get serious about your manuscript and put it into the hands of someone that will help you rip it apart and sculpt it back again and hopefully better your chances with an agent/publisher.

Love/Hate random poetry

Today March first its significant because four more months until I am on summer break, but since that is a long ways away I will revel in the fact I will go on a much needed vacation without kids and spouse to regenerate a healthy mental healthy and hopeful gain some solid perspective, since my mood has been weird today one minute sad, then calm my muse encouraged me to write this short poem. The love I feel today how distant it feels tomorrow. When the days seemed longer, the warm breeze caress my skin and then the gusty cold wind dances on my face. Love hate what differentiates such powerful feelings? Is it the sunrise that makes me weep or the sunset that frightens me because darkness hovers nearby.
