Hurricane Sally Welcomes Me Home!

When you’re returning from a two-week-out-of-state-trip and a Hurricane decides to pop up and give you the grand reception.

When you’re a Pensacola Author

By John Irvin

          All right, so I was gone to Kentucky, visiting my folks, and was keeping steady with my writing work. I’ve finished the first draft round of the last four books in the Magic’s Time Split series and was already beginning the round of second drafts.

          I had a list of things I needed to accomplish when I returned home to Pensacola. Within the last couple days: BAM! My phone informs me a Cat. 2 hurricane named Sally hits Pensacola out of nowhere and decides to hang around for a few days.

          I flew down over her while she was climbing up Alabama, worried about my friends and neighbours.

          Thank God, He had His hand on them and no one in my circles was hurt. Although there was a big mess when I got home and the power was out all over the county.

          I must say, I am thankful for friends who took me in while we waited for the power to come back on.

          Now, power’s on, so it’s back to business and I’m commencing Operation Catch-up. A lot to work on over this week and so many plans I’m going to be executing over the coming months.

          It’s an exciting time for both my author business and my freelance proofreading!

          Still working on figuring out better ways to promote my team’s fundraiser over on GoFundMe because, when Spring 2021 comes around, I want to be ready and prepared for the best debut book tour!

          If you have any ideas, please reach out. Also, click through the photo or link and join our supporters by donating whatever amount you’re able to then share with your friends. This is called crowdfunding and it’s a new way of supporting each other as entrepreneurs, business adventurers, or just friends!

          On that note, I’m looking at my schedule for this week and it looks like a large pile, but I’m not at all daunted. I feel pumped and ready to conquer.

          So, on this note, I’m going to say, talk to you next week, stay safe, and have a great life.

          Also, I will be forgoing my YouTube video for this month as I’ve got to begin work on a new endeavour over this next month. But, you could still click through the link shared below and hit follow then catch up on a few of the previous episodes. It’s a work in progress, but it’s getting better.
