One of the interesting things about indie authors is that working on publicity never ends. I’ll bet you know exactly what I mean.
My latest interview is with idleskybps.com via Moonlight Mondays(Interview #7)
It’s always fun to read an interview over a while after I’ve written responses, and I’d love to have you take a look and leave a comment, reblog, and/or like.
Please keep writing. It will make a HUGE difference in your life.
Wish I could tell you where this originated.
It’s easy to tell others to take risks. It’s harder to live by that rule, especially if you’re wise enough to consider the consequences. Have faith. Take a leap and trust that someone will catch you.
Weigh your choices.
Don’t hesitate to give to a stranger but don’t give everything away.
Be who you are. Everybody else is taken.
Life is short. Have the courage to leave a miserable job, if you’ve tried everything you can. The same is true of a miserable relationship, as long as you’re not hurting your children. If you’re afraid you might be, weigh the value of staying in a struggling relationship against the possible outcome of moving on.
Don’t be afraid to move on and move forward. Don’t let fear hold you back.
Don’t be afraid to love; don’t wear your heart on your sleeve.
Remember that life is what happens while you’re making other plans.
Consider your body, with all its imperfections, a gift from God. Treat it well and know what you can and cannot change.
Accept what you cannot change; change what you can; ask for the wisdom to know the difference.
Be grateful for what is right in your life.

I was only going to New Orleans for the Next Generation Indie Book Awards if I won. I thought I had, but I had won the National Indie Excellence Awards in the category of Relationships, not the NGIBA.
Confused? I was.
On the other hand, finalists are considered award winners. They just aren’t first place. If I count everything up I was a WINNER in Relationships at the National Indie Excellence Awards and a finalist in Aging. I was a finalist in both Relationships and Women’s Issues at the Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
And this morning, I learned that because I had a five-star review from Reader’s Favorite Book Awards, I’m entered in their contest too.
My glass is half full. 🙏✍️
NEVER TOO LATE:
A 62-year-old goes from Wannabe to Wife
by B. Lynn Goodwin
How does a 62-year-old woman who’s never been married find happiness with a two-time widower seeking his third wife on . . . Craigslist!? Does she throw caution to the wind and relinquish her freedom, or should she take a crash course in compromises?
Author B. Lynn Goodwin tells all and more in NEVER TOO LATE. How she was attracted to Richard’s clear expectations, his honesty, and his incredible openness. She’d never met anyone like him.
Would she recognize love if it knocked on her heart? And could an educated woman be happy moving into a blue-collar world?
Whether you’ve been single forever, are trapped in an unhappy marriage, or you’re simply curious, you’ll find secrets to a happy marriage in NEVER TOO LATE.
