KellyAuthor Kelly Clanton
I am from Midwest City, Oklahoma which is the heart of a large Military Base and a town committed to Friday night football. After graduating I married, raised a family and working in the family business several years juggling many responsibilities. I’ve always been one to journal my thoughts as an escape to a hectic day or to remind myself of all I am capable of achieving. In a world with so much negativity, my passion is to inspire positive thoughts one thought at a time and my hope is that I can inspire you! This has been an incredible journey and one I’m not finished writing.

Praise for the book:
We all must have something to look forward to on a daily basis or we remain complacent and never move forward in life. This book is an easy way to have a positive for each day. Highly recommend this book for both its content and its price point. No reason not to purchase and share to even nonreaders as this book is broken down by day. We can all read a sentence or two a day. NO excuses! “Strive for Progress, not Perfection” ~ David Sterk

If you enjoy journaling, this is a great tool for positive living. If you have never journaled, this is a great way to start! This is not a novel and the reader is an active writer / participant. Kelly’s affirmations are her own and are intended to be used as a guide for helping others develop their own daily affirmations. Truly enjoyable!

Everyone needs this book. (Even us pessimistic people)
Smile, smile, smile

Excerpts:
January 5
You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breath, trust and see what happens. Remind yourself it’s ok to not be perfect. It’s not selfish to love yourself. Take care of you and make your happiness a priority.

February 5

It doesn’t matter how rich, talented or cool you think you are. Your integrity and how you treat others says it all. You have to water flowers daily for them to last.

March 10
In life, you have to do what makes you happy. Be with ones that make you smile. Laugh as much as you breathe. Love as long as you are living. Every day is a new beginning – look to what it can do.

April 1
Sometimes our lives have to be shaken up a bit – moved around to put us where we need to be. Look ahead and always smile. You never know what a change it can make.

Novus Spotlight & $100 Giveaway

Novus

Novus by Crystal Marcos

Ideal for Hunger Games and Divergent fans, Crystal Marcos delivers Novus, a riveting novel set in a dystopian future of action-adventure, suspense, and romance. Intriguing characters and a gripping storyline keep the reader turning page after page.

Being a teenager is hard enough. And what if your life’s path is pre

determined? On top of that, you aren’t even Human?

Cayden was given life as a Cresecren. He expected to live out his days with the dysfunctional Human family he was assigned to serve. One fateful night, however, landed him in Gavaron, the home of maimed, elderly, or defiant Cresecren.

Beyond its borders is the Den, an area much more dangerous than he ever imagined. Now seventeen, Cayden unwittingly becomes involved in a conspiracy and is one of a handful of survivors fleeing a deadly attack. They set off on a perilous journey in search of refuge and the truth. Along the way, Cayden begins to comprehend the difference between fully living and merely surviving, while trying to balance his emotions and a forbidden love.

Praise for the Book:

“Novus by Crystal Marcos is one of those gems that make you care about the characters within the story, and while you definitely want to know what happens to them, you can’t help but also not want to get to the end of the book. It’s the kind of book whose characters you miss when you finish the book.”

~Kim Anisi for Readers’ Favorite- 5 STARS

Excerpt
“Thanks for the help,” I said, trying to be polite.
“No problem.” As she leaned in a little closer, my toes dug into my soles. Her whisper caressed my ear. “I slipped in a couple extra bags of oats and a jug of milk.” She winked. “Don’t tell.”
I was not used to a Human being that close or that generous before. I just stood there, staring back at her.
“There you go again, staring! If I wasn’t a confident person you would give me a complex.” Linnayah bent down, lifted up a box and handed it to me. I took it and loaded the last of the boxes into our cargo vehicle.
For the remainder of our time in the Supply Depot, I tried hard not to look for Linnayah but failed miserably. I could not help it, she fascinated me. Why would she give us anything extra to eat? Why risk getting in trouble? Where does she live? What is her family like? Where does she go to school? I would like to read her school report sometime. Would she get high marks for it? Will I see her again?

Another Update on Unexpected Beginning

Posted by on May 4, 2016 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I’ve been on a writing binge since last week, and that means things are moving along with Unexpected Beginning. I’m at some great scenes, and I’m loving it! A writing binge means I pretty much consume my life with writing, doing the minimum with everything else. My house gets messy, I ignore most of my emails and stacks of paperwork on my desk, and I also lose weight since I don’t like taking time out to eat. I get completely focused and can’t stop thinking about the story, even when I’m trying to sleep and talk to living people.

I usually release a book every year around May or June, but I’m behind with Unexpected Beginning and plan for a late summer release. It took much longer than I expected to go back and make changes to my debut novel to reflect my current writing style. That means I should have the fourth book ready for beta reading around that time, and I plan to add to my list of beta readers. I’ll prepare a form for you to get added before then, and you may want to sign up for my newsletter to get notified when it’s ready. Although I haven’t had much time to send out a recent newsletter, I do send out important information that way around release times.

I’ve been hearing from a lot of readers lately, and I’m so happy everyone seems to love Alissia and her story. I try my best to keep my writing full of surprises, and I love to create worlds full of vivid imagery. I thank each of you for giving the first book a try, and I hope you’ll consider taking a moment to leave a review.

Oh, and another way you can get notified of all my book releases is by clicking the follow button on my Amazon Author Page. (It’s beneath my profile picture.) I recently got an email from them letting me know about the release of a book I’ve been waiting for. I would have missed it without the notification. It’s truly a great tool to keep you updated on releases from your favorite authors.
