Time Can Slip By

Time has been slipping away from me much more than it should. There are so many temptations and distractions, and I’ve become out of practice in avoiding them and in planning for what I want to get done.

I keep hearing my favorite quote from Thoreau ringing in my mind like a bell that’s spurring me to action:

“As if we could kill time without damaging eternity.”

— Henry David Thoreau

I have a bunch of new ideas for stories that I want to get written as soon as possible. I still have tons of stories to wrap up in the series that I’ve already begun. Though I know it’s important to build downtime into my schedule, I also need to maintain my focus so I’m moving things forward to share all these amazing stories with you.

Every day, each of us gets the same amount of time. 24 hours—1,440 minutes—to do with as we will. We all have different demands on our time, whether it be familial obligations, personal health requirements, or commitments we want to keep. It’s still up to us what we do with those 24 hours each day.

I need to spend more of my time on my physical upkeep (sleep, healthy food, exercise) and activities that truly nourish me. It’s all too easy to get sucked down a rabbit hole of entertaining videos on the Internet, then find a whole day lost! I’ll be working on building my discipline back up as well as my time management skills going forward. I need to get those books written!

Wish me luck 😄

Catch up with the Cygnian 7 while you wait for Dorn to launch!


He never expected to find his soulmate.

Bound by a sacred oath, Lar has selflessly dedicated his life to place the needs of his crown prince above all others, including his own. Taking the oath was easy in his youth—with the population imbalance facing his people, there was no hope of Lar finding a soulmate. He never expected to be tempted to break his oath. But then he journeyed to Earth.

Sophie Myers doesn’t have time to heal from the trauma of alien abduction. Nor can she allow herself to be distracted by Lar, one of the giant blue warriors who rescued her.  She has no time for romance now that a shapeshifting alien mercenary threatens her family.  But when she discovers she wasn’t the only one taken, her only hope is to place her trust in Lar.

Their search for answers only turns up more questions—and uncovers a threat bigger than either could ever imagine. Will the temptation of their growing bond lead them to a new life together, or will it ultimately send them to their death?
