    You are up to a lot. I had no idea that you were doing anthologies. That is awesome. Way to go!

    Storm Dance is a great name. I love it…as someone fascinated by storms. 😉

    “Fear is always knocking at the door, but if I don’t open the door and face it I will never get anywhere, right?” Love that! I have a quote (can’t remember the source) on a post-it on my computer screen: “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” It really helps 🙂

    Great trivia about Storm Dance! I’m so excited — I already have characters and storylines vying for attention for Vol2 🙂

    Very cool about getting into the anthology biz! I hope they do well for you. Anthologies can be such a good career boost for newer writers, especially if you have established names in the mix as well.

    Hi, Juneta! I love that Grumpy Old Gods book title and cover. So funny. I wish I could sketch or draw. My daughter draws wonderfully. She sure didn’t get her talent from me. All best to you, my dear!

    I too enjoy drawing. I used to scrapbook everything, but now I simply keep up with photographs.
    Storm Dance Publications sounds like a lot of fun. I look forward to your first and future volumes to be released.
    Great post with lots of good content.

    Drawing and coloring are big creative outlets for me as well. In my mind, though, they’re so tied up with my writing process I almost don’t think of them as separate things. I often draw whatever I’m writing about, and I often write about whatever I draw. The two feed off of each other.

    That sure is a ton of submissions indeed. Sure sound like you are creative in many a way.

    Yes, fear is always, relentlessly, knocking on the door. But man, you are kicking butt this year!

    You remind me that early in the blogging era, I used to dink around designing templates. Self-taught html and coding. Now, no need. So many talented coders putting out beautiful templates. But boy, can I waste some time on book covers now.

    Grumpy Old Gods is a great title, Juneta. You have so much happening and about to happen that as I read your post, I had to take a break. 🙂

    All my best on you next adventures in 2019.

    I admire your creativity and the Grumpy Old Gods series sounds like a fun read. We share the seasonal Storm Dance, too. We live on a boat on the Pacific side of Mexico (a few miles north of Puerto Vallarta, MX). Hurricane season is loaded with excitement.

      Yikes! I would not want to be on a boat during a hurricane, lol. I am in Central Florida about an hour either direction to the ocean. Last year a hurricane hit us going directly over us, and luckily this new area we live in fared better than the rest of the town. The sound itself is scary and those continual high winds for hours, oh my.

    Congrats on the new endeavor. I can only imagine how much time it takes but it sounds wonderful. And, I love the name. It has energy, danger, and passion all in one.

      Yes. It definitely takes time. It requires me doing whether I feel like it or not, and I like that because I think it is something I need to learn. Thank you.

    You are right that we have to open that fear door. I struggle with that at time. Congrats on your anthology!

    Storm Dance Publications – love it!

    You sound like you’ve done a lot of the same creative things I’ve done. No book covers though. I leave that to my illustrator.

      Thank you. Vanessa is actually doing the covers for us for the anthology. She is pretty good at it. I may try my hand in the future. I have a writing forum where they let put up covers with test groups to vote for best version and suggestions on Hollyeswritingclasses.com when I decide to do for my own book, but I am still planning to hire for cover. Vanessa is using the test forum for covers too.

      Yes, it was and a lot of reading and deciding. We got a lot of good story and it made it hard to decide, which is why volume two. We will be opening volume two up for submission too, but a few we ask to resubmit.
