7 films, 3 TV Series, and over 30 New Books Released in 2017!
It's been a personal record-breaking year for me in 2017 as I embarked on taking on my own Go Girl Challenge and philosophy. I wrote, produced, directed, and starred in 7 films and 3 tv series. I produced, managed, and hosted a live stage international production for a world class stage for charity at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, I started a professional quarterly periodical for Authors and Publishers called Authors Voice. I started a store. I began production and filming on a feature film (Bitter Frost) that will be theatrically released. I partnered up with a tv/film station to produce most if not all of my books into tv and film. I released over 30 books and launched my Sparklesoup eBook Store with over 85 books. Personally, I challenged myself physically by going camping and chaperoning a bunch of tween girls on a remote island without cell phone and internet, decent plumbing. Whew! Became a judge and mentor for an emerging writing community website. Got invited to submit a speech for TED Talk.
4 Wins and 1 Nomination in Film Awards in 2017
This was the year I let it go....stop caring about what rankings or amount of sales I had for my books, and just wrote books and produced tv/films that I felt compelled to write and produce even though they are not going to be the "hot" ones that is on trend. One series was effective enough to make a social difference, in spite of the trolls and critics. It accomplished its purpose. I am satisfied with being true to myself, being true to my beliefs, and being able to achieve more for women and girls. For that, I was rewarded with awards - 4 Wins in Film so far (still going through the Film Festival circuit) and 1 nomination.
Women and International Recognition in 2017
Women made a huge leap in recognition for their work in film and television. More strong women characters were lead characters on screen. And more international/global works of quality are being discovered.
Strong Clarity and Direction in 2017
This was also a year, things became very clear for me, and I was able to see with clarity and wisdom on predicting where things are going in 5 to 20 years. I had visions of where certain industries are going, where certain companies and even countries are going. Strange but true. I felt like Nostradamus.
I lost my dear grandmother this year, but saw a vision of her in a better place. She is happier and at peace, watching over her loved ones in heaven along with my grandfather.

Bitter Frost Omnibus Books 1-4 of the Bitter Frost Series released for the 1st Time as a Box Set today. We are excited that it has already reached #1 in New Releases in Teen and Young Adult in Bullying and Social Issues. It is with good company along with the teen and young adult novel, Thirteen Reasons Why.
Bitter Frost the book series, which is published by Sparklesoup.com but is also an Indie book series, itself has undergone bullying in its first few years of release mainly from indie-hating trolls, who believed books like Bitter Frost was a threat to traditionally-published traditional YA books. But due to the loyalty of Bitter Frost's fans, which sold over 1.5 million books and is translated into multiple languages, as well as strong support from large organizations and governmental organizations; Bitter Frost Series was able to overcome bullying in the publishing industry, get made into a video mobile game, animated film which won film awards, and is now in Production as a Featured Film to be released in 2018.
Bitter Frost's success is a testament to good and kind-hearted people who believe that good triumphs over evil, and that bullying both in the book's message and externally, is wrong and will never win. Teens and women especially like this series because it is truly an empowering book...a true underdog rise to destiny book. If you want a female-driven Lord of the Rings or Chronicles of Narnia, Bitter Frost is it. And that fact the series was bullied from rivals in the beginning, especially big pocket larger Goliath rivals, shows Bitter Frost has something that is worth threatening them.
The Bitter Frost Omnibus is Available Now on All e-Retailer just in time for Christmas!
