A wise woman once told me that when you hear great advice, heed to it. I can count on Angelia Menchan to dish it out on a regular basis. She doesn't tell you what you want to hear; she tells you what you need to hear. I'm honored to have the Hollywood Deception Red Carpet Tour stop here.

As I pondered what to talk about today, it dawned on me one question many ask--how did you get to this point in your career? I'll try to be brief.
The road hasn't been easy. What you see is the work in progress? I don't say finished product, because with each day, I'm evolving as a person and as a writer. When I embarked on a publishing career, I had to do something I had read about many times in the Bible. I had even heard my mama and my grandmother talking about it. I had to step out on faith.

Although I have a publisher now, it wasn't always like that. I started out self-published. So stepping out on faith, I invested in myself. I went to conferences; I took writing workshops; I networked with aspiring and established authors. I absorbed as much information as I could about the publishing business. I've put in a lot of sweat and cried many tears, but all of it helped position me to where I am today.

Even with the mild success I've achieved over the years, I'm still striving for more. I do my best to maintain a positive attitude, but sometimes, with the dismal news floating around about the publishing industry, it gets to me. People like Angelia and others are a part of my life because there are days when I need motivating.

So if you hear me shouting with joy (via the web) about my ninth book release, Hollywood Deception, it's not that I'm trying to boast or bombard your email. It's because of the long road I had to take to get to book number nine. Today, I have something to rejoice about and it's great celebrating a triumph with friends.
