I couldn't help but be moved by a moment at the end of an episode of Perception. The main character sits at the piano alone, refusing to take his medication because it would mean letting go of the ghost of the woman he loves, singing about how all of his joy would be gone if he couldn't spend even this fictional time together with her... Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone. Jack is struggling through these same feelings. Which should he choose, reality or fantasy?

“Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.”

2013 Goals

2012 was a big year for I Wish..., but not as big as we had all hoped. The goals were set high and along the way we seemed to take the scenic route. So, instead of making a new set of daunting goals, we are going to just keep on trucking toward the same set until we reach them.

These are the Top 5 Goals for I Wish... for 2013.

1) 100 Amazon Reviews. We are currently sitting at 27 reviews, but as more and more people finish reading I Wish... I am hoping that the reviews really start to add up.

2) 200 Facebook Fans. I Wish... has accumulated 157 fans over the last year. So, we only have 43 to go to reach this goal.

3) Book 2 (I Dream...)published by the end of 2013. Unlike the other goals, this will be mostly all me. I am on my way and actually hope to get it out before this summer.

4) Top 100 list on Amazon. We have gotten down to the 20,000 range a couple of times, but I am hoping that, with a lot of help from the fans, we will see the top 100 list at least once this year.

5) Hard Copies of both I Wish... & I Dream... This is a big dream for me that I would like to see come into fruition this year. I have had a lot of fans clamoring for a hard copy and, by this winter, I hope to make it happen.

***** To help make all of these goals happen we will be putting up monthly challenges to give us a boost. *****

A New Year = A New Review!!!

Just spotted a new review that popped up over the Christmas break. Thank you!!! Here it is...

Can't wait!!, December 28, 2012
I just finished the book last night. I would have finished it faster but life happen and I can't just sit and read. The book is about a girl(Jinn) that goes on this journey. The author is really good about pulling you in to her story and lead male's story.the story starts right off. Great job on the Jinn angle. I have read a lot of supernatural stories but not one about Jinn. This story is fun and have many surprises in the book. So keep your eyes open. You never know what is going to happen. I am really hoping the second one comes out really soon. I know that I will be keeping my eyes open for it.
