June: Half the story is written….

Stories are generally divided into chapters, and chapters are then further divided into sections or paragraphs. And when you look at a work in reverse, it becomes much easier to see how all those small sentences, paragraphs and sections become chapters, and chapters become a complete book. Our lives are lived in much the same fashion. Each section of minutes becomes an hour, hours become days, days become months… and so on. In a somewhat clearer statement, here’s what I’m saying: Our lives are created and lived, moment by moment, until all at once, you realize half your story is written. Does it read like a romance, true crime, or something totally out of this world? (Interject some laughter here). I hope it’s a little bit of all those possibilities, rolled into making you a very unique story and person.

In a somewhat similar vein, the months of the year, naturally bring us full circle, until one more trip around the sun is complete and we’ve added another chapter to our Book of Life. Since June is the midpoint for the yearly trip around the sun, it’s a great opportunity to look back on the first half and ponder where it went, how did we spend our days, and just what can we see that we’ve added to our unique story. Hindsight is such an important part of our lives. If you’ve read any of my books, you’ve been exposed to just how much importance I place on “hindsight”. Here’s the excerpt from my back-of- book for Memories of Tomorrow:

Everyone says that hindsight is 20/20. If that’s true, how much of that image in the rear

view affects who we are today, or what we will become tomorrow?

Every step we take, every move we make, every bond we make (or break)… all those jumbled moments become the snapped-together puzzle pieces of our lives. A patchwork of experiences, people, and places we file away in our memories that make us who we are. The make our life what it is.

In these last few months, mine has been a whirlwind of change. Ups and downs, curves and clips, more unexpected than expected. There has been laughter, smiles and tears, and lots of emotional rollercoasters.

But here I am, still standing at the midpoint. Still standing hallway through this tumultuous trip around the sun of 2024. Sometime over the next months and maybe year, I will be in a better frame of mind to share the latest chaotic chapter of my life, but not just yet. What I can share, and can’t wait to share, is some great book news!

Today I received the wonderful news that my books are now going to be available as audio books! I’ve waited for so many months for this to happen and I’m excited beyond belief! I’m listing the books, the ISBN numbers, and copies of the covers below and if you’d like to give them a try, you should be able to find them on Amazon, Audible, and any other main stream audio book distribution site.

Until next month, dear reader, stay safe, happy, and well-read!
