Basking in the Glow

Ana feels good about Success

A writer friend's first romance was released by Kensington on Tuesday.
Each month, authors in on the Soul Mate Publishing roster have their books published.

Debra is waiting for news on her latest submission.
Paula is polishing her latest (and possibly greatest) story.
Jen is super busy setting up promo for new stories.
I am writing chapter four of a contracted story, book 2 in the Prairie Hearts Series.

At least once a day, I lean back and bask in the glow of everyone's success--not to steal any morsels, but to appreciate how good we all are. And to thank the systems that allow us to create works of creative art and share them with readers all over the world.

It's time for a quick, "Hooray!"


  1. Aww, thanks Ana! I love looking around at all my author friends, being part of their community, celebrating their successes and supporting them when things don't work out as planned. It's a great place to be. :)

  2. It's interesting to see how we're all at different stages! But hooray for us all!

  3. A support group is vital for a writer, since we tend to spend so much time in our own heads! And it's awesome to be surrounded by so many authorly things going on. :)

    And not to rain on the parade of happy thoughts, but everyone can uncross all of your fingers and toes. I got a 'no' on that submission just today. Time to figure out what to do now...

  4. Sorry to hear this Debra. BUT onwards and upwards - good luck.

  5. Support groups are great aren't they. I don't know how I'd have managed without my writing friends - even the bossy ones - (now who could that be?? :D )
