Sapphire Eyes Update

bannerfans_6127454 (1)

As most of you know, I am in the process of Self-publishing my first book: Sapphire Eyes.

As I started walking on this journey I met a lot of wonderful people, and found amazing sites filled with knowledge.

I decided to e-publish on Amazon.com which is where I do a lot of my online shopping (ie: most).

This led me to Createspace.com which is perfect for publishing books! They have tons of free tools and information readily available at the tips of your fingers.

Basically, it took me by the hand and led me step by step through the process. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this site thus far!

They also gave me the ability to provide my book to the world in physical form! They print the book as it is ordered so that the author doesn’t have to fork over costs up front. Incredible to learn!

I am almost ready to share my story and my imagination with the world!

I’m very nervous, but I’m also very excited.

When I decided to write this series, my only goal was to write something that made me happy. Then I began sharing my work with my son, and that is the moment I realized, I wanted to write something to make him proud.

My son is on me every day, “What have you wrote today?”, “Can we read the next part?”

I love it. It has become a favorite pastime for us. We will go to Barnes and Noble, sit at one of the tables after school, and read my stories as I write them. Sometimes, we use bed time as our escape into my world. We enjoy it. Plus, he gets to use his imagination and envision his own twists on my world.

I wanted to send a special thank you to all of my preview readers, who took the time to evaluate and give feedback on my novel. I appreciate your time and dedication.

Too the people who have read portions of my book and have been waiting for what seems like forever for me to publish the complete novel… thank you for your patience and understanding along with your questions, drawings, and beautiful crafts! I love them!

I also wanted to say thank you to my family and friends who have taken unknown amounts of time from their lives to discuss my book and everything that goes along with it!

Thank you all for supporting me on my journey, and continuously encouraging me to stay strong and keep writing.

Homeschooling

So, My ex husband, his wife, and I have decided to begin homeschooling our son soon!

Not only is Caleb excited, but so are we!

I have been researching so much the last few days, and will be continuing these endeavors for a while to come, I’m sure. I’m excited to share what I have found with any who are interested. There is a whole world of information to grasp. My research is specific to North Carolina and Secular Homeschooling mostly, although I have found many things that are not specific to either. Please feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment if you have questions, or would like information.

I wanted to thank the authors of a book that has lead me to finding great information.

The book is ” Homeschooling Your Child For Free” by: LauraMaery Gold and Joan M. Zielinski

Also, I found an amazing video thanks to Youtube and Facebook friends! I wanted to share this Christmas Song with you in ASL. The signer did an incredible job!  Here it is: ENJOY! (and Merry Christmas)

Education and Empowerment

“Knowledge is Power”

Francis Bacon

If you haven’t been able to tell, I am a stickler for education. Even my car says so… it’s a rolling billboard for the colleges I have attended.

My courses this semester will be ending tonight, and I have a feeling of pure sadness that washes over me every time I remember. The people whom I have met this semester are wonderful, intelligent, and beautiful people. I don’t want to lose their unique personalities and their encouragement from my nights in class. They have created their own personal mark on my heart, and will forever be in my life.

My personal education thoughts:

I have been told I am a difficult student to teach. I tend to ask questions that people don’t want to answer, or don’t have an answer for. An answer I have received, for example, “It’s beyond your pay grade, so you don’t need to know it.” That answer irritates me. Why would I ask a question I didn’t want to know the answer to?

I usually take on a mother hen approach toward the other students in my classes. I advocate for their needs as well as my own. I ensure that the students who are trying their best have an adequate understanding of the material before them. I create study sessions to assist them, I text them random questions to get their mind reeling, and I place them in situations where it can be easily understood. I don’t want to leave someone behind when they demonstrate true yearning for knowledge.

Knowledge is everything to me, without it, we are lifeless organisms. Our destinies or choices will not be obtained, and our minds become null and void. Each person is different from the next in the way they understand and cling to certain types of information. Each person follows their own path to become the person they choose to be. IE: Without a mechanic, my car would be broken. I have skills that others do not, and they have skills that I do not. Actually… come to think of it, Mother Teresa said something just like that, and I quote, “I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.”

I want to become an educator in the near future. I have a yearning and a passion to teach others. I love the way a person lights up when they finally comprehend something they have been attempting to master. The intensity of that situation is amazing to watch and feel. I enjoy being a stepping stone on their way to greatness.

My goals for the future:

  • I will do my best to educate my son on the ways of life, the opportunities available, and enhance the skills within him.
  • I will instruct American Sign Language courses. It’s a passion that I found in fourth grade when I first learned the manual alphabet and heard the story of Helen Keller. I was instantly obsessed. Of course, back then, it wasn’t as easy to obtain information to further my understanding.
  • I will continue to write. I will publish books that mean something to me. I will blog on my thoughts and I will encourage others. My mother always called me her little cheerleader, and I love that title.
  • I will educate others on subjects that I am familiar with, and lead them toward a way to obtain the information I am not.
  • I will love every person I meet for who they are and who they want to become. I will support them in their journeys by either walking beside them, or standing in the background smiling and clapping obnoxiously.

Hello All!

I know that I have been slacking a bit on my blog, and for that I apologize. 

It’s the end of the semester in college, and finals are this week! Exciting! 🙂

An Update:

I plan to have revised Sapphire Eyes and have it up as an E-book in January! For info and excepts on Sapphire Eyes, click here!

Golden Tears is coming along quite nicely! (Just finished Chapter 18) For info on Golden Tears, Click here!

I have also been working on a poem that I want to perfect before uploading it. It is one of those poems that means so much to the writer, you can’t let it go until you’ve made a master piece.

I’m in the process of reading another fascinating book by Ally Condie: Reached. You can find her site Here! She is an amazing author and I truly enjoy her work.

I want to say that the Christmas Season is now upon us, and for all of the single parents out there: You are doing an amazing job juggling all of the roles you live everyday! I recently shared a story about Christmas that I didn’t think I would ever tell anyone. I’ve realized that sharing information is what helps others in their lives. If you would like to read about a single mom’s difficult Christmas, here is the link.

Other Random Info:

My blogger buddy, Christian Mihai, is not only a fantastic author/writer, he is  creating a wonderful website. Please stop by his page to learn more about how you can get your own information into the world, and help others achieve their goals of the same! Check him out: Here he is!

That Deaf Guy is an amazing web-comic strip created by Matt Diagle. His first book is ready for shipping at this time. I just got mine in the mail a few days ago, and I am so entertained by his art. My son and I have been giggling while we read! Please take the time to support this family by liking his FB page and taking a look at his creation: That Deaf Guy.

This topic is close to my heart also, ASL is a true language and needs to be verified as such by our US government  We have two more days to obtain signatures on the petition! Please take the time to sign it, it’s easy to create an account and takes maybe 2-3 minutes to add your signature! Here is the link!

 

Off to do some more school work!  Thanks for stopping by, and I will be writing more here in the future! Again, sorry for the delays in my blogging!

-Rebekah
