The Black Pearl Book Club's Second Annual Tea; My hat off to you ladies!

Hello everyone! It's been a few weeks since I've written on my blog and I do apologize. It seems that time goes by faster than I can move through a day, but I am here; Yeah! The Tea, hosted by The Black Pearl Book Club,which was held at Pipps, an Italian restaurant in Los Angeles, was a great success and I must say, the ladies were wonderful host, and the food was awesome.I enjoyed every moment.The ladies did so much to make all of the authors including myself, welcome.I had the honor of sitting and talking with the other authors( Sheila McDaniel, Deborah Harris, and the wonderful Victoria Christopher Murray) and they were all so warm.Thank you ladies, it was a pleasure... The Black Pearl Book Club is not only a book club, they give back to the community and that to me is so beautiful. What they do is so needed...thank you Black Pearl...you rock!The rep from The Cinderella and Prince Charming Foundation was the guest speaker and what the tea was truly about...paying it forward, and I must say he was very informative and kind. Hats off Ladies to a great Tea Party!!!! To my sister Arnetice, who took time for me out of her busy day, thank you so much. You got me through my fear of speaking and your support through all of this I will cherish forever! Love you sis!!!!!!!!!!!! To my husband who has not only been my manager, best friend, and greatest supporter: thank you! You are my rock...love you forever! To my readers and those of you who have taken time to visit my blog, thank you most of all...without you, there is no story...

Doing It All

Hello guys! I want to talk a little bit about multitasking. I have a full-time job, which I can honestly say I love; I am a full-time mom, even with three adult children, and author. But the reason I wanted to talk about multitasking (doing it all) is because as a women, it's truly a part of us—and for many of us, it actually defines us, although I can say for the most of us, we do it well. So blink those sexy eyes a few times for yourselves for that one, ladies! As a writer, there are so many areas to write about regarding this subject, but as a lover of fiction writing, I don't actually know how I would incorporate it into a story. A conversation that my sister had with a friend of hers, actually sparked this thought, even though it happened over a year ago--go figure. I can’t say why, I wanted to touch on this subject today, but I think I just needed to share this bit of venting with you all. Don’t get me wrong—Multitasking is a good thing as long as we space it right, know what we want out of every task and are realistic about getting it done. If you can’t get it all done in one day, you just push it to the next. Just that simple.

I would love to know what your multitasking duties involve in a day, and how you actually handle them. Who knows--maybe I can learn a thing or two, or give a bit of advice. Just my thought…hope to see some of your post…
