Monthly Review: February 2019

February remains the shortest month of the year, so it feels like it's flown by! We're already at my monthly review, which occurs on the 4th Wednesday of the month. Looking back at my January post, I feel extremely accomplished and excited.

My Kickstarter campaign is currently 108% funded! When I announced on Facebook that I only had $88 left to go, while I was texting with one of my friends, she sent me a screenshot from one of our other friends because he put in that $88. I teared up a little, can't lie. That means I'm going to get the cover for my book! I contacted the artist, and she let me know that she will still be available when the campaign closes, so now I'm just enjoying the moment. Two others pledged after I reached 100%! That's just as special, because that means they saw it was fully funded and still wanted to contribute. My heart is filled.

Work is a little slow, so I did finish reading Tash Hearts Tolstoy at work. It wasn't as good as I expected it to be, but that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. I might pick up L.L. McKinney's A Blade So Black next. I'm not a big Alice in Wonderland fan, but I've been anticipating this book for a couple of years now, and L.L. might make me a convert.

On a serious note, I have some family matters that will be at the forefront for at least a few months. If you can or do, please say a prayer for me; it will really help.

Thanks a bunch! See you in March!

That's awesome you are funded! And then some. Now you have money for the cover and the other things that will crop up and demand money.
