Today I'm introducing my Dragon Soldier team over at the A to Z Blogging Challenge and giving the day's advice for enjoying April during the challenge. And don't forget that Wednesday is IWSG posting day.
My mother had many sayings passed down from her mother and grandmother. Every March she would remind that if March comes in like a Lion, it will go out like a lamb. Since we had a bit of winter storm yesterday, I'm hoping the kinder weather shows up tomorrow. March was named for the Roman god of war, Mars. Let's home spring wins the war against winter.
If you were born in the years, 1938, '50, '62, '74, '86, '98, then you fall under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Tiger. You are forthright, sensitive and possess great courage. Is that you?
Another bit of wisdom from my trusty Old Farmer's Almanac is that it takes three weeks, on average, to form a good habit.
Now for the news that is already going about the internet but how it personally affects me. About three weeks ago, I received a letter from Crescent Moon Press telling authors that they would close their doors at the end of March and return all book rights to authors. I wasn't shocked to hear this as they had become extremely slow at answering emails and other signs.
I decided it might be for the best and decided to query Musa Publishing to take on the fantasy series I had with Crescent Moon Press since they did such a professional job with the series I had with them. To my dismay, on the day my book was to be released by Musa, I received a similar letter and returning my rights to me as on last Friday. This closing did shock me and made a sad end to February. I won't even go into all the frantic rearranging I did for the promotional things I'd planned for that book release.
I bet you can guess what my post will be about for IWSG on Wednesday.
Any Tigers here? Ever heard my mother's bit of wisdom for March? How long do you think it takes to form a good habit? Did you have any worse career news than I did in February?
