It's Been Awhile....

Wow.  It's been over two years since you all have seen or heard a peep from me on this here blog.

I feel I owe a deep apology to my faithful readers- you all supported me in some very challenging times of my life.  I appreciated that more than you could know.

If any of you are still hanging around...I hope you join me in this next adventure of writing I'm about to embark on.  So the answer is Yes, I'm back at blogging!

But, where did I go?  What will I be doing with my blog now?

Well for the first, Life just sorta happened. I was heavily involved in finance and foreclosure counseling/prevention roles which left no time for anything else but saving the next family from home loss. Quite frankly I wasn't feeling so much that I wanted to write or wasn't feeling that I wanted to share online any writing. I was exhausted. Plus, I didn't prioritize it into my daily schedule as I used to do.

I never gave up on the novel writing thing- which brings me to where I'm at now.

A lot has changed in my personal life and professional life.

My 3 kids and I are doing wonderful and able to spend more time together.  My oldest is no longer fighting for her life or receiving chemo treatments. She's the normal average teenager, who is about to turn 16 and drive me crazy as a mother lol. But she also seems to possess a much wiser sense of how life works than kids her age- which I attribute to the fact that she has learned the value of having the gift of life in a way I've never experienced.

I now own my own business and I work as a Book Manager with to help authors get the word out that they have something to offer to the world. Whether its fiction, literary, non-fiction, or funny- I help them find solid footing with their dreams transitioning into reality.

I do miss the non profit world, but not enough to entice me to re-think my career choice. Plus, we all know I love books, I love the creative flow and the idea that conversation can be held through books- creating meaningful ideas and thoughts within the minds of readers across time and space.

As for what I'll do with this blog of mine?  Well, I'll probably share upcoming novels from my authors that I work with on occasion, but mostly I'll just write on what I'm thinking that day.  Hopefully my posts become more consistent. Maybe you'll want to read them, maybe you won't.

I hope you do.  I hope that somehow what I have to say might make a difference for someone else, in a positive way.


Have a great day,

April aka WingSeeker

P.S. you'll probably see some structural/visual changes on here as well.  I figure if I haven't posted in 2 years, then the blog probably is in need of a much needed makeover :)
