2021 Reader Appreciation Post

Here we are in January 2021, and the struggle is real! Like many of you, I've been battling with daily anxiety and existential dread. This pandemic and the chaos in politics has brought us almost constant stress for the past year. We all knew deep down that just because we switched over from 2020 to 2021 that things wouldn't immediately get fixed, but gosh, it seems like we've been riding this insane bucking bronco for too damn long! 


Like many of you, I'm fatigued as all hell and ready to get on with my life, but rather than give into the depression today, I decided to make myself think of something I was grateful for in my life. They say that appreciation helps battle the blues, so maybe we should all try to do a little more of it on the daily. 


Today, in the spirit of appreciation, I wanted to tell all my readers how much I appreciate them - and if you're one of them, how much I appreciate you!

As a writer, I cannot tell you how much it makes my day to pop onto social media to see that someone has posted about reading one of my books. You didn't have to make that shout-out, but you were kind enough to do it, and I appreciate you!


Every time I see a new sale whether a book purchase or pages read on Kindle Unlimited, it totally makes my day! If you're one of those who has taken the time to click on my books and peruse its pages and even maybe read the whole damn thing, you rock!!


And for those who take the time to reach out and email me, or leave a comment on one of my posts regarding my books, and for those who sacrifice a small part of their day to write me a review, I cannot tell you how awesome that makes me feel. I appreciate you!


Readers, I mean it. You are the best. I send you my love. I send you a big virtual hug. In this crappy time when it's so easy to focus on the negative, just know that you are seen, you are noted, and you are greatly appreciated!


XoXo

Scarlett's 2020 Year End Thoughts

Image from pexels.com


If you're reading this, congratulations! You're one of the people who made it to the end of this absolutely insane year. The pandemic is not over yet, and a new year won't change it, but I feel like we owe it to ourselves to be proud that we made it through the bastard that was 2020. I thought I'd share some of my year-end thoughts, reflections, etc. Here goes!


Writing-wise, I am happy to say that in 2020, I pushed through the frustration and managed to complete two full-length novels. THE NEON FISHNETS BOOK 2: BREAKING THE CHAINS was released by Painted Hearts Publishing in September, and I also completed the rough draft of THE NEON FISHNETS BOOK 3, which I plan to submit to Painted Hearts early in 2021 for release a little later in the year. I also have a paranormal FF short story in the works! I'm hoping to release it in 2021, this one as an indie side project. 


I haven't dined at a restaurant since March, and that had been a bummer. I haven't been to a coffee shop or a bar either. Wining and dining on the weekends is one of the things I live for. But I've been diligent with my social distancing practices. There are a handful of places that have had good take-out, so I've picked up food from them on rotation. I can't wait until the day that I can safely be seated at a table, have a real menu placed in my hands, and get to eat right there in the restaurant! It's the little things we take for granted.


Like a lot of people, I've watched a shitload of movies and shows this year. Since I can't go out to concerts or conventions or restaurants or any of my other usual haunts, the living room has been my perch. At first I got sick of sitting around and doing nothing but watching TV in my free time, but lately, I've started to embrace it. I mean, why not? I'm not a couch potato by nature, but the time calls for it, so that's what I'm doing. I've watched some amazing movies, though, including Portrait of a Lady on Fire, which was probably my favorite movie I've watched this year. I've also been delving into my dark side by watching the Hannibal TV show that used to run on NBC but is now available on Netflix. Don't ask me why! I'm just really into it! 


In my time of social distancing, I've barley seen any family or friends in person since I've been trying super hard to stick with this social distancing thing. The handful of times I have chosen to take the risk have felt very special. Going into January, I'm keeping my ass at home though because yikes, those Covid numbers are scary! I want to do my part to help stop the spread even if it feels pointless. Video chats aren't a bad replacement. It's not the same as being with someone in person, but I'm grateful for the technology we have that can keep us connected in ways we wouldn't have been able to not long ago.


I'm extremely grateful to say that I have not lost anyone close to me to Covid, but as I type, my aunt is in the hospital, critically ill from the virus. None of us know how that will pan out. Right now, she is still alert and able to talk on the phone, but there are signs pointing in the wrong direction as far as her recovery goes. It's one of those terrible moments I have been dreading throughout this whole thing. All my family and I can do is wait because her fate is out of our control.


2020 has been a whirlwind year. I hope that everyone reading this is still hanging in there, and I offer deepest condolences to those who have experienced loss this year. It's been a shitty time for us. May 2021 be a better year for everyone. Cheers, and Happy New Year, my friends.


XOXO

Scarlett

Giving Thanks 2020

 

photo from pexels.com


I've gotta be candid with you: it's taken some serious effort to find things to be thankful for this year. We're bombarded with constant political strife, economic hardship, the global pandemic, etc. 2020 has been...a lot. But despite being in one of the most challenging years ever, I still wanted to do a post about the things I am grateful for. 


1) My Readers, Old and New

I am beyond thrilled at the reception that THE NEON FISHNETS has been getting. With Book 2's release a couple of months ago, I have received such positive feedback from the most loving, awesome fans. The lesfic community continues to amaze me with its energy and vigor, and I look forward to continuing to release books in the genre that entertain my readers and make them smile. 


2) My Publisher: Painted Hearts Publishing

I wanted to give a shout-out to my publisher, Painted Hearts Publishing, because they continue to believe in my work, and they are constantly striving to be the best small press they can be. From my first release with them, THE ART HOUSE, back in 2016, up until now, it's been really exciting to grow with them and to work with them as a team.


3) Friends and Family

This one's a given, but especially now, I am grateful for my friends and family who have proven their unconditional love for me even in this most difficult year. Because we've had a lot of time to reflect, especially if we've been trying to maintain physical distance, we've all found out who our long-haul friends are, not just the ones who are there when it's convenient. I know I won't forget the strength and support I have seen from these dear loved ones.


 

I would like to think that one day, we'll look back on this year and see it as a challenging time that really showed us how strong we are. This pandemic won't last forever. We'll be able to go to restaurants and concerts again without worry, and we'll be able to go shopping and visit our loved ones without having to remember our masks. But for now, I want to encourage everyone to be as diligent as possible in staying safe. We've made it this far. We can do it a little while longer. And while we're doing it, let us not forget the things we're still grateful for.


XoXo

Scarlett
