Shari Richardson--Author

I just finished creating my own author application. It works on all mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows, etc) and will keep everyone posted on what is new and exciting with me as the new editions of the Highland Home Series are released. There are contests and free reads in the app as well. I hope you'll enjoy the content and add the app to your mobile device!

Reading and editing the Highland Home books has reminded me of why I fell in love with these characters in the first place. It is a humbling experience to revisit them.

I have released myself from the Ninth Circle of Hell!

I made the decision yesterday to leave the ninth circle of hell that was my full-time job. I have been thinking of leaving for some time, but had been waiting for there to be a new full-time job to take its place before I left. However, yesterday's events prompted me to leave without that safety net. 

I had been thinking I'd stay...tough it out...but then a little voice in my soul screamed, "Coward!" How will I ever know if I'm good enough, prolific enough, to be a writer full-time if I don't leave this hell and find out. So rather than sacrificing my dignity and allowing the organization to continue to suck my life, creativity, and soul dry, I very politely told them I quit, handed over my keys, and left. 

Now comes the really scary part...trying to make the bills on two part time jobs and my royalties (which right now only cover one bill each month). I'm scared, but I'm free.

First Edition Edits--On the Way to the Editor Now

Leaving the grotto soon. The massive edit of the first edition of Mourning Sun is finished. The second edition will be so much better than the first was. I'm a better writer now and knowing more about where the story is going now than I did when I wrote the book has made it better.

Mourning Sun is no longer just my answer to everything that was wrong with Twilight. Now Mourning Sun really and truly is book One of the the Highland Home I can only hope my readers adore as much as I have loved writing it. 

These are the characters I have loved since I first began dreaming of them in 2009. These are the stories I have wanted you, the reader, to know since they first were told to me by Mairin and Mathias. When the second edition is released, you'll find so much more to love. I promise!

Time to get a move on...

I've spent the morning getting a Google+ paragraph together. Feel free to follow it and as always, I'm open to chatting with anyone who loves my characters as much as I do :-). 


Plan for today...

I'm going to get my rear in gear and head to the writing grotto (otherwise known as Starbucks) for English Breakfast Tea and editing. 

Stay tuned for Big Big News in a just a few weeks.
