TIMELESS (#3 Maiden of Time) by Crystal Collier! 

Book Title: TIMELESS (Maiden of Time #3)
Author: Crystal Collier
Genre: YA Paranormal Historical
Release Date: November 1, 2016


In 1771, Alexia had everything: the man of her dreams, reconciliation with her father, even a child on the way. But she was never meant to stay. It broke her heart, but Alexia heeded destiny and traveled five hundred years back to stop the Soulless from becoming.

In the thirteenth century, the Holy Roman Church has ordered the Knights Templar to exterminate the Passionate, her bloodline. As Alexia fights this new threat—along with an unfathomable evil and her own heart—the Soulless genesis nears. But none of her hard-won battles may matter if she dies in childbirth before completing her mission.

Can Alexia escape her own clock?

Inspiration for the Soul #IWSG

The question of the month:

How do you find the time to write in your busy day?

Lately, my internal time clock has been oh so kind to wake me up in the wee hours of the morning. I've decided to go with it and use the time before I have to get ready for work or start my day to write. Since I'm a morning person anyway, this works out well. 

Onto insecurities. Well, I've had so much to juggle this year that insecurities have been shoved in a corner. When they rear the ugly head, I push them back. I just don't have the mental capacity to deal with them right now. The verdict is still out on if that is a good or bad thing. I'll let you know if I figure it out.

I did want to share a bit of inspiration. I was chatting with a friend recently about life and he made a comment that is so very true.

You only fail when you stop trying.

It resonated with me. Maybe because it was said at a time I needed to hear it. And even through we weren't talking about writing, it applies here too. So keep at it! Don't give up! If you do that, you are doing a great job and you should be proud of that.
