April 1 - #atozchallenge - A is for ANGST

April 1 - #atozchallenge - A is for ANGST  

For this year’s A-Z theme I chose the rollercoaster ride of emotions, feelings and thoughts that color everything we say, think or do and make us the people we are.

 For me, ANGST is a combination of anger, anxiety, apprehension, and agony. All the emotions I feel in situations that overwhelm me. Situations I’m powerless to control. The loss of a loved one, the death of a dream, and then that awful paralyzing moment when I ask myself, where do I go from here and there’s no immediate answer.

I’m no stranger to moments like that. The past year had more than its share. And then this year started with the announcement that my publisher for the past twelve years was closing its doors at the end of March.

So, where do I go from here? As an author, I have options. I can look for another publisher or I can go indie. I’ve been successful in the first option and have found two new publishers willing to take certain of my books, and I'm hoping to self-publish the rest.

I hope you enjoy this year’s challenge and don’t forget to check out other A-Z bloggers and their posts you’ll find by clicking on

Cool mysteries and hot romance - 


  1. I think you nailed the description of angst. Sorry to hear your publisher is closing down, and well done on finding new ones so quickly :)

  2. Angst...a good word for much of my year, also. I hope all your new publication options are happy ones!

  3. Oh, no! I'm sorry your publishing house is closing. I've never published a book, but I can imagine it hurts. Congratulations on finding new ones, though. Hopefully you can find the same sense of camaraderie with them.
