It’s Happy Hump Day again. I admit, my mood this morning is not the best. I’m trying to be upbeat but finding it difficult this morning–I’m really sad about what is going on in this country and how the underbelly of people is showing up. I guess I realized we hadn’t progressed beyond racism and sexism, I knew it, but I wasn’t prepared for SO much ugliness like we’ve seen over the past months. Sam’s still looking for work and still encountering discrimination due to his disabilities, which is nuts because he’s damned good at what he does (high tech, software developer/tester).

However, to bring joy into the world, we have to be strong and counter the anger with our own light. So here goes: Things that make me happy today.

I love my hair. I got my color re-done and I love it. For those who haven’t seen it:

So that’s made me happy. The cats are well. Sam’s fine. I’m fine too. We can pay the bills and that’s a blessing. My friends are dear to me. My readership seems to be picking up in indie–with each book it gets a little better and I’m a little less scared and that’s SO necessary–I need to know this is working to be able to focus on working. Readers are being VERY supportive about my move in this direction and I’m grateful for it. People are LOVING the Bewitching Bedlam Series and the Fury Series and I’m VERY grateful for that. And…I’m loving writing again. Oh, I never lost my love for it, but the joy in the process? It kind of got beat down and someday I’ll write a blog explaining how and why. Now? I’m having fun again. Oh, it’s harder work than before in some ways, but I’m enjoying it again and now there’s nothing to limit me except figuring out how to reach my audiences–and that I’m starting to manage. (Tell all your friends who love my books about my switching indie, please–word of mouth counts for SO much especially now).

Anyway, this is my positive notes for today. Tell me something good–spread whatever joy you can, and let’s shift the tide of anger and worry. 🙂

    I have read almost everything you write then I pass them to my sister in law who loves them too! But OMG I just finished Souljacker last night and cannot wait until the next one. How many books will this be? Also, what does Indie Mean? Just that your books will only be available by ebook, or am I missing something?

    Still thrilled to be reading your books, you’re the only author I enjoy everything I read. I’ve even gotten my aunt into your books, she doesn’t really read paranormal anything, and she’s looking forward to books 3 and 4 of Whisper Hollow. Now I’m working on getting her into Bewitching Bedlam. But, can’t wait for more and I love the hair.

    I’m happy for both of us that you went indie — you, so you can keep writing what you want the way you want to do it; me, so I can keep reading your books.1 And you look wickedly wonderful

    Your hair looks fantastic and I love all your books. I’m always anxiously awaiting the newest book in series. I started with your Otherworld series got hooked and started reading your other series. You became one of my favorite authors.

    Hi Yasmine. Love the hair. Got the Chintz and China series and Bath and Body series on the shelf, and unbelievably happy that you are continuing Otherworld. Don’t do Facebook or I would be stalking you there. Please, please continue the Fury and Bewitching Bedlam series, and keep your hopes and spirit(s) up.

      Oh, I plan on continuing both Fury and Bewitching Bedlam. I’m planning a 6-7 book run for the Fury Series and Bedlam–well–as long as people love it. At least four and probably more. 🙂 I don’t know how many more Whisper Hollow–two, definitely, and of course, the last three Otherworld. Then–more ideas after that. 🙂

    Your hair looks beautiful Yasmine. It suits you. I love your books, and look forward to each and everyone. I really loved the Emerald novella lately, that finished the Chintz and China series.

    I absolutely love the Fury series and the Bewitching Bedlam series. I have pre-ordered everything I can to I won’t miss a single moment. I keep saying when I get them, I will savor reading them but I jump right into them. Can’t help it, I love your writing. Plus I am a devoted fan of the Otherworld series and can’t wait till the next one. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us.

      Unfortunately, there won’t be many preorders after Souljacker, at least for awhile. But the books will be out faster so keep watch! 🙂 So thankful my readers love the books.
