Cherie Colyer's Embrace - Virtual Launch Party

Today I am participating in a very cool event to support fellow friend and author, Cherie Colyer.  It's called a virtual launch party!  Woot! Go Cherie!  In the spirit of the novel, Embrace, I'm relaying a personal story about how I had to personally embrace change.

I never realized how ongoing change can be until after I became a mother. From the beginning, I was overwhelmed with change. (And sometimes still am.) I'm constantly challenged by finally getting the hang of things and then another six months to a year goes by, and I'm stupefied once again. I'm not sure how to address it other than staying positive and trying not to sweat the small things. My babes keep me grounded that's for sure. And I thank my lucky stars every day for them. :)

And now for some real partying!

a novel by Cherie Colyer 

Madison is familiar enough with change, and she hates everything about it. Change took her long-term boyfriend away from her. It caused one of her friends to suddenly hate her. It’s responsible for the death of a local along with a host of other mysterious happenings. But when Madison meets a hot new guy, she thinks her luck is about to improve. 

Madison is instantly drawn to the handsome and intriguing Isaac Addington. She quickly realizes he’s a guy harboring a secret, but she’s willing to risk the unknown to be with him. 

Her world really spins out of control, however, when her best friend becomes delusional, seeing things that aren’t there and desperately trying to escape their evil. When the doctors can’t find the answers, Madison seeks her own. 

Nothing can prepare her for what she is about to discover.

Babies are the biggest change in the world! Great post.

Thanks for supporting Cherie! And oh my children were the biggest change in my life, no question. Being a parent is crazy hard (and good) work! Happy Holidays!

Children are definitely a big change, but a rewarding one. My husband and I have four boys. When they were younger there was never a dull moment.

Thanks for writing an awesome post on embracing change!

Yep, that's about right - you think you have 'em figured out, and six months later it's all up for grabs again. Any my two are teenangers! But like you say, it's a most worthy change to embrace. :)

Congrats on the release!

I'm not a mother but I gather that all sense of control and planning goes out the window when kids come into the picture! But also many rewards and love. Good luck with your brood.

Congratulations, Cherie!

I know children changed my sister's life a lot, and made her into a very different person. She's a very good mum :).

"Embrace" sounds great!
