Doubt is a Ninja

So let me start by saying that my novella, Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love, releases in two weeks!  Gasp and yay!  The entire collection is up for sale at Dreamspinner, and you can buy the whole bundle at a ridiculously good price, and then a new story will be delivered to your email every morning in the month of June.  It’s fun, because you won’t know what story is going to be there until that day.  But if you’re a little choosier, or if only some of the titles strike your fancy, then you can buy any of them as individual titles starting June 1st.

And in six or so weeks, Something Like Hope will be released as well.  That one is the longest I’ve written and had published so far, and Aaron and Lucas have a place in my heart that I didn’t expect.

So check out Ben and Zack on June 1st, and Aaron and Lucas a few weeks after that.

In the meantime, I’ll be nervous and worried and excited and thrilled.  I’ll be working on the sequel to Something Like Hope.  And I’ll be trying to squash my doubt like a bug.

It’s sneaky, that doubt.  Like a ninja.  I can be going on along, not a care in sight, working hard and being excited and then…that doubt starts to whisper.  It starts to tell me things and tear down my confidence.

I think that doubt is a part of who I am, and the truth is, I don’t want to kill it completely. Doubt keeps me working hard to tell the best story I can.  It keeps me from getting complacent.  Some days it’s stronger than others, and it impedes me.  But I mash it down, do my best to quell it and keep going.

It’s not easy, because it’s impossible to beat a ninja, but I’m working on it.
