Home is where a good book lives!
Websites are a great technological tool for quick access to find out more about someone... like me!
I am an author and editor and the founder of Hollace Writing Services to meet your writing and editing needs.
On my site, you will find a few tidbits of information that will allow you to get to know me more.
However, it is just a little glimpse of me.
I spend more of my time pursuing my calling of writing and editing other people's work than spending a lot of time here on my website.
It is a work in progress. Just like a tree started out as an acorn... some day I too will be a mighty oak.
Please join me on my journey.
June 2014... we're at the halfway point of this year. It's been quite a year with lots of writing and editing for several authors as well.
The biggest news to share is about the Amazon ABNA novel contest. I entered the fray in February with 9,999 others hoping that our novel would be selected for the top prize.
Well, the good news is that I made it out of the starting gate and past the first round selection from 10,000 manuscripts down to 2,000.. that was amazing!
But it didn't end there, on April 14, the quarter finalists were selected... down to a field of 500 and my book made the cut. Yes, I am a quarter finalist.
A week from today, Friday, June 13th, the semi-finalists will be announced, a total of 25 people in 5 different categories. The top five in each category will continue on.
I'm still in the race and look forward to next week's annoucement.
If you're interested in checking out an excerpt of my novel, that is titled, "31" check out this link from Amazon.
Please feel free to post your comments.
Enjoy this summer weather and National Donut Day, June 6th.
May all your dreams come true!

This favorite passage is both inspirational and motivational,
as I pursue my passion.
* * * * * *
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond all measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, "Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?"
Actually, who are you NOT to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
-- Marianne Williamson
