      • Hi Robert. Thanks for thinking of me. Congratulations on your recent marriage! Our 41 years of marriage were wonderful and filled with ups and downs, I wish we could have shared more years together, but the Lord had other plans for my Heavenly Hubby. I would be honored to read Asleep (Drifting) Book and give you an honest review. I'm not as proficient in writing reviews as I am writing novels, but I will do my best to have it make sense. I'm currently on deadline, but am hoping to read your book sometime this weekend. Sincerely, C.H. Admirand

          • Hi Robert:

            I'm so sorry for the delay. I just posted my 5 Star review of your book. I have to be honest it was very difficult for me to read about the horrific abuse you suffered as a child. You truly are an inspiration for others suffering in silence. Here's my review--it could take a few days for it to show up on Amazon:

            Amazon 5 Star Review
            By C.H. Admirand, Author of Historical & Contemporary Romance

            Headline: Robert is courageous in sharing his journey to help others.

            As a mother of three and grandmother of two, I was compelled to keep reading the first book in Robert Paul’s three-part series: Asleep (Drifting) Book One, even though it broke my heart to read of such abuse to a little boy who could not escape it. I cannot fathom the pain of living through such abuse as a child. It is one thing to read a fictional story of abuse, but heart-rending and devastating to read Robert Paul’s account of the abuse he suffered from an early age.

            With the help of his beloved Grandmother and Aunt Betty, Robert learned what a loving environment was despite all that he went through on his journey to adulthood.

            Robert’s courage and belief that he could start over enabled him to become a wonderful father and successful business owner. He beat the odds and kicked his alcohol and drug habits.

            Robert’s healing journey includes his need to reach out to children suffering from abuse and to bring awareness to abuse which needs to be discussed openly—no matter how painful it is—to help those who are suffering. It is far easier to bury those memories and dependencies. I am in awe of what Robert has accomplished in his life. He is an inspiration and will be a light to others who have suffered similar horrific abuse in silence.

            Thank you, Robert for having the courage to change your life and share your journey with others to help them on their journey toward healing.

            Sincerely,
            C.H. Admirand

            • Thank you so much for the review. It means the world to me! Because of the book Asleep (Drifting), it's caused much turmoil within the family. My mother has never taken any ownership with regards to her atrocious acts, and has everyone fooled that she's the "victim," and has always been one. If there's anything I can do for you, please let me know C.H.. Asleep (Hypnotic Rhythm) Book Two, was just released, it's a lighter more comical version of what you've just read. If somewhere down the road, you get a chance to read it... I guarantee you C.H., you won't be disappointed. Be Blessed My Friend.

              • Hi Robert:

                You are very welcome. I wish you continued success with Asleep (Drifting) and Asleep (Hypnotic Rhythm).

                Thank you for your generous offer of help. I'm in the middle of a double-deadline right now, but after I turn in the books, I'll send you a note if I need anything.

                Have a wonderful rest of the day.

                Sincerely,
                C.H. Admirand

      • When I received the rights back for my backlist, I tweaked and released a "sweet" version of some of my books. The next series I plan to sweeten is my small town cowboy series: Tyler, Dylan and Jesse sometime in 2022.

      • I check email and post to social media before I start writing for the day. When I'm on deadline (as I am right now), I get started writing before the business part of my job. Switching back and forth is too hectic for me when I'm focusing on finishing a book. Things get crazy when I have a new release and am on deadline. Then interruptions to post to social media and respond in a timely manner to email is essential. Those are the days when I wish I was allowed more than one cup of caffeinated tea.

      • Self-editing. I'd rather write a whole new story than have to roll up my sleeves and edit one. After I finish a book, I do at least three self-edits before it goes to my editor. There are words that I've missed, typos that slipped past me. Run-on sentences! Guilty there. Sometimes I need to go deeper into a character's thoughts. It helps to have a trusted second set of eyes read my final edit before turning my books in.

      • I always loved writing assignments in school. Poems and short stories combined with art were some of my favorites. But it was my seventh grade English teacher who encouraged me to write. I've been writing with an eye toward publication for the last 25 years. I published my first short story 21 years ago and my first novel 20 years ago.

      • Don't let your creative well go dry. Feed your soul. Celebrate along your journey to publication (if that is your goal.) Did you finish your book? Have that cup of tea with freshly baked scones to celebrate! (chocolate works for me too) Did you submit the manuscript an editor or agent requested? Celebrate! Give yourself the gift of time to accomplish your writing goals and remember not to gauge your success by another author's. Everyone has a different idea of what success means to them. Be true to yourself. Don't give up, you never know how close you are to succeeding if you do.
