Sorry I have been away so long....

It has been a while, I know, but rest assured, I have not disappeared. I just finished "The Ten Commandments of Divorce" which is ready to be edited for publication. It is not the first book I wrote, but it is the first book that will make it out of my computer and into the hands of readers.

There was a miracle that happened to me this year. It came in the form of a disease. It gave me the opportunity to just "be" long enough to actually get my writings in order and into a concise book format. Before the sickness, I had every excuse not to write. In fact, I retired from a regular job to do this (writing) full time. Instead of knocking out a few manuscripts though, I dragged my butt for almost four years. Yes, I knocked out five websites and I did a whole bunch of other things, but never accomplished what I really set out to do.

It wasn't until I was stricken down and bedridden, did I decide to make a commitment to myself to have a book ready for publication by my birthday, which is at the end of November. I am happy to say that I kept that promise!

Laying still this spring/summer, more sick than I had ever been in my entire life, came incredible clarity. It was as if messages were being whispered in my ear, and in the shape I was in, I had nothing else to do but listen. I am not sure what precluded me from writing prior to my illness, but now I am so prolific, I am finding it difficult to turn my head off every night so I can sleep. The dam has broken and the words are like a flood I am trying hard to contain. Thank goodness I type 100 words per minute!

The first offering is for divorcing couples and may not suit your needs, but the second book, that has already begun to take shape, is for everyone. It is my goal to have it completed by the spring, and I am using all of you as a motive to do it. So here it is in "writing", my pledge: To all my readers who have followed me through the years, you have waited so long and I hope I don't disappoint you. To all new readers, my wish is that I can enlighten you, even if it is only 10 watts worth! And to all those who are looking to take the next step, I can't wait to offer you a new, healthy direction to take it in. Love and Peace, D.
