When I started blogging I really just wanted an outlet for writing, which was something I always enjoyed doing, but a teacher, whom I loved, told me that becoming a writer, and being able to live off what you make, is nearly impossible.  I was no James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell or Mary Higgins Clark right?

I am past most of the technical bits, as I messed around for 2 hours last night trying to get all the fonts, spacing, etc right.  And I realized I needed to set a goal, a cut of point, and here it is:

The new site will be launching June 5th!
