And now a two week long “weekend” looms before us. I am looking forward to spending lots of time with my boys. With the homemade pizza in the oven for another 30 minutes, the boys got restless and my youngest asked to watch TV.
No, I decided, I would read to them. I pulled out a stack of Robert Munsch books and starting reading. I had one kid hanging off my back (more comfortable than it sounds) and the other by my side, reading the words along with me. And I don’t just read. I whisper. I yell. I make sound effects. I’m noisy. And it was the best 30 minutes with my kids. Me reading, them listening. Just the thing to kick off Christmas vacation.
My writing is truly a glimpse into the crux of who I am. When I was little, my mom made this Jell-O cake where she would poke holes in a white cake and pour liquid Jell-O over the whole cake. If my book is the cake, then I am the Jello-O.
To continue with the analogy… I just baked another cake, er, the cake comes out of the oven in February. If you think I’m completely off my rocker now… I signed a book contract this year and the release date is scheduled for February 2017! Exciting times! Again, I feel like my dreams are coming true. Another book. Stay tuned for the happy event – don’t worry you won’t miss it!
Dream Hunter celebrates its book birthday this month. I love my characters, Cynthia and Gabe. This year I’ve promoted DH with Book Hearts, The Masquerade Crew, Genre Pulse, My Book Place, and Fire and Ice Book Promos. If you haven’t read it, now’s the time…
Up and coming events for Maya? Look out for a flurry of promotional activity in February-ish when my new book hits the web… A DH prequel is still on my radar. A sequel to my soon-to-be latest book is also in the works. Plus life and all that entails… Stay tuned… for a merry holiday season and more musings from Maya in 2017!
Another year has flown by! Last year I published my first book, Dream Hunter. During 2015, I finished writing two more books (yet to be published).
Speaking of Dream Hunter... Today happens to be its book birthday! Exactly one year ago today, Dream Hunter was published by Just Ink Press. Keep watching this site as well as Twitter and Facebook for some exciting birthday-related events...
In November-December, Dream Hunter participated in Cover Wars. No results yet... Thanks for all the votes!
After two whirlwind months of posting my own story samples (October) and hosting guests (November), Maya's Musings was quiet in December. On Christmas Day I posted a short story called Christmas Dreams. Did you read it?
The Nuthouse Scribblers
Earlier this month, I wrote a guest post on The Nuthouse Scribblers called The Business of Writing about how I've worked to promote Dream Hunter. My article had over 1300 hits and received some helpful comments about book promotion.
What's next for Maya Tyler in 2016? More writing, of course. Stay tuned for more from Maya!
