Stop by to find out all the details and enter for your chance to win a fabulous book prize pack- contest runs until February 3rd. Fairday's Riddle's: Volume 1 is available for e-book download for only .99¢! Collect all 62 original riddles and illustrations, and make time to riddle a rhyme! So here's to our goals, may we all reach the ones that are important, and remember to enjoy the ride as we move through our space. Today, we want to hear from you. What lies behind the gateway to your dreams?

  2. My life goals are to live so there are no regrets in the end and to have some fun everyday. The rest will take care of itself. Sounds simplistic, I know, but it really isn't.

  6. Excellent y'all. Mine are pretty simple. For my son who was born with a rare brain disorder to always be safe. To be an awesome wife and Mom. And for me to get my picture books and MG novel pubbed. On with it! *waving*

  11. I’m still catching up with your posts and wanted to say that Walking to the Bus-Rider Blues sounds like something I really want to read.
    My dream is to live long enough to see my new little granddaughters grow up and to be able to spend more time with them. The second part is harder as they live in Australia, and I’m in the UK – but never say never!

  12. Hmmm. My big goal at the moment is to change careers. I've run my current business for going on 9 years and am ready to try something new. I'd really love to own a used bookstore next :) I already started working in one part time to see if I actually liked it and it's been amazing so far :)

    Hope yall are having a great week!

  13. I dream we'll all spread the message of love by living that way - unconditional love. Have you noticed feelings of love are light as air, where feelings of hate really bring us down? I'm hoping to spread love through my books.
