Goodbye March Madness -- Welcome April Fool's!

Goodbye March Madness -- Hello April Fool's

Welcome to my blog. I hope in this unusual time you are able to find some good in your current situation. I've made a humorous video sharing the top ten reasons I'm not getting anything done. You can see that below.

As a quick introduction, I'm KJ Waters and an author of breathtakingly original time travel fiction, and an author consultant helping writers one book at a time.

Currently, I'm writing the third book in my time travel series, Killing Time and just started a new women's fiction series. This is an excerpt from my latest newsletter that I wanted to share with you as a teaser of what I like to share over there. If you'd like to sign up to enter my monthly contests to win gift cards and books please sign up here.

Save the World -- Wash Your Hands! 

Let's make a pact. I promise to not freak out if you do too. Pinky swear you will take care of yourself by walking outside and focus on the beauty of spring, playing solitaire on your iPad (I just started this and it's actually fun!), or call your bestie and tell him/her how much s/he means to you.

You can take small moments in your day and let yourself get lost in a good book, a favorite show on TV, playing Scrabble, kicking zombie's asses, anything that keeps your mind off the scary things going on out there. Find something that just a week ago you didn't have time for, something you've been wanting to tackle for months.

I promise to be calm (ish) and enjoy the little joyful things. My family needs me at my best and a stressed me doesn't do that. Promise me that you will keep your cool.
Take charge of your health and happiness by focusing on one small thing that brings you joy. Even for just a few minutes. It will offer you a respite. Find ways to be grateful for what you have, to focus on the good things that you can control.
I hope you and your family stay safe during this unprecedented time. I will be sending you happy thoughts, healthy prayers, and lots of unconditional love. We are all in this together!

Top Ten Reasons I'm Not Getting Anything Done

Here is the latest video I made to make the best of the current situation. Top Ten Reasons I'm Not Getting Anything Done. 

Yeah, I'm a goof but I'm also well suited for these times. I'm a writer and already spent a ridiculous amount of time at home hiding in my office. But now, so is my entire family of six, and that is killing my productivity. 

Great little blessings are in there as well, like seeing my college son every day when he should be away at college and having special moments where we all play games together. Even my teen-aged daughter is forced ... ah ... gets to spend time with us now. 

Also, I wanted to extend my March Newsletter contest to give you a sample of what I do each month over there. Here is the scoop.

God Winks March Contest
Sometimes turmoil brings unexpected blessings in your life. This month's contest is all about those little God winks as my late sister-in-law called them. 

Share your unexpected God wink by responding to this link to enter to win a $10 Amazon card. If you already entered on my newsletter you can enter for a second try at a $10 Amazon card here. I will choose winners on April 7, 2020. 

My surprise blessing happened three weeks ago when my son's college shut down for the rest of the semester. He was already home on spring break from his school in New York 27 hours away. You can imagine my unending joy finding out we could keep him for the next 2 months and possibly longer depending on what happens this summer. Especially having him home where I can care for him during this crazy time. 
That is exactly the type of unexpected blessing I want to celebrate. I know our lives are shuffled up right now, but tell me what cards you were dealt with some unexpected God wink. 

My Books are all available for free on Kindle Unlimited. #KU

The adventure continues when Hurricane Francis, the size of Texas, is barreling towards Ronnie and her friends. She tries to leave town but fate interferes.

Caught between a hurricane and a deadly secret, Rick Harris struggles against a ticking clock when the wrong people show up at his door looking for shelter.
