Catching Up!:)

Lynn Thompson Books

Lynn Thompson BooksI’m am a writer, author, mom, wife, and I work for a living. Wow. Some days I sit down and really think about what I accomplish in one day. It can be exhausting. I wake up between 5:00 and 5:30 every morning and work on my author business and writing before I leave for work. Of course, I attempt to get those dreaded chores and whatnot done also.  I’ve attempted to throw in exercise too, but that’s not working, so I go out for hikes on the weekend. The hikes clear my mind and keep me in shape.

Last year a group of friends and I planned out a three-day backpacking trip for this spring. Yes! A great way to unplug for a while. Spring flew by while we were waiting for decent weather. It didn’t come. Frigid at night, high wind gusts during the day.

Fine:) Early summer would work. This last weekend was going to be our backpacking trip. And… we are under an extreme heat wave for our area:( I’d already taken the days off and I really needed to unplug for a while, so we headed to the mountains instead, in hopes, it would be cooler up there. Yes, it was cooler, but not by much.

It was a nice retreat, though. I read a little bit, listened to the sounds of nature, watched the almost full moon come up, gazed at the stars, and did a late night 5-mile hike to the hot springs. (Way too hot to hike during the day. I drank about 2 gallons of water every day I was up there.)

Now I’m back and trying to get motivated to work again. And I’m catching up.

One of thing’s on my list is to catch some of the video’s I missed on the Self-Publishing Sucess Sumit. If you missed my last post here is the information on the speakers. These speakers have a lot of great information from writing your first book to marketing to making money on your website and are great to listen to.

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures. Visit Lynn at: Website: Twitter: @lynnthompson8 Facebook: Goodreads:
