One Step at a Time…and Bundles for Good Update!

One Step at a Time

The new year has already proven to be quite challenging. For some reason this winter has been a difficult one so far, with illnesses back-to-back in my family, and many other families are experiencing the same thing!

Remember to take things one step at a time, one day at a time. That’s all you can do when unexpected things occur!

Other News:

I have not posted in some time, mainly because 2019 was a year of family focus, reflection and learning. Some highlights from 2019 are as follows:

  • I had the opportunity to participate in the Indie Author Day at my local library in October. I enjoyed meeting and connecting with other local authors in New Jersey and look forward to participating again in the future! I now have four cozy mystery novellas under my pen name in addition to the three self-help titles. I will continue to explore expanding my writing and creativity in 2020.
  • My husband and I continue to sponsor the Kardos and Jusino Family Annual Scholarship in Memory of John F. Papetti, Sr. at NJIT.
  • I successfully simplified and redesigned the book promotion site I run (Bookwerm). I’m happy to support fellow authors. I would like to grow this site eventually so that I may provide more help going in the future.

Those are just a few of the main highlights of what I focused on in 2019 outside of my family. I’m also always learning more about finances, investing, etc. to best support our household.

Again, I hope all of you are doing well. Also, I encourage you to enter the giveaway, especially considering the charitable efforts behind the bundle that John Bardos has created (note: similar last name by sheer coincidence! I did not hear of John until he first contacted me to participate previously).

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year!
