Annie Shares News Volume 3 Issue 1 January-February 2024
🥳 🌚 💝
I am behind on this newsletter and should have sent it out sooner. The last month was full of obligations and family activities. We rang in the new year together from the comfort of the new sleep number bed in our house. We are settling in well, the animals love the space and quiet positive energy.
Jerry and I registered to vote, got new State identification, met with our respective medical care providers, and checked off many of the post-move tasks each day. Trips to the home store and hardware store depleted our finances a bit but it needed to be done. Apartment living doesn’t require a leaf blower, ice melt, garbage pails for weekly pickups, outdoor lighting, video door bell and back door camera, updated alarm system, a ladder, rake, shovel, HVAC filters, five rooms of furniture and so much more.
Our daughter visited with her fiancé and her cat at the end of January. It was rewarding for us to offer a guest room. We appreciated the open and welcoming living space this home offers. We all got along wonderfully.
Get ready for my next contemporary fiction novel, Imperfections, scheduled for a March 2024 release.

More about the book:
For Lainie and Efren affirming their love for one another comes with consequences and his name is Shane. Will his stalker mentality erode their love or will Lainie and Effren be strong enough together and be free of Shane’s cruelty for good?
My poem “What the Heart Lives” placed third place in the Oprelle spring 2024 anthology. I am hoping to take part in readings and book fairs in 2024 and I am hoping to complete a nonfiction book about the human and service animal bond by next year.
