Hello, friends!

Welcome to my page where we will celebrate the art of reading. Join me for the ride and together let us feel the romance and rejoice in the magic that love brings into our lives.

Here at CarolAnnJohnson.net, you can check my latest books and articles. I will give you access to excerpts of my works, just enough to tickle your minds. You can also read my interviews and blogs where I share my passion for reading and writing. Not only that, I also love to share my thoughts about life, my favorite stars, and current events. But more than that, I am looking forward to hearing from you. Share with me your thoughts, literary works, or current favorite reads. I also have contests for writers and readers alike so watch out for that so that you can get a prize!
Carol Ann promises to bring you interviews and discussions on romances. Expect to meet some interesting authors and learn all about the sub-genres of romance. We have the Author Spotlight where you can get yourself acquainted with many talented writers. This section features interviews with gifted novelists and poets and we will share their literary works with you. Who knows I just might interview your favorite author next time. So, make sure you stay tuned. Better yet, you can send me a request so that we can schedule an interview with the writers that you are following. Maybe they can open their steel garage doors in Albuquerque and let us in into their abodes and divulge a little more detail about their lives and upcoming projects.

Let us all feed our minds with the energy brought about by love. Love, after all, is both sad and happy, remote and exciting. It is indeed a mystery. Ahhh… a little bit more of romance is not such a bad thing. Together let us fall in love with that dashing debonair and let him sweep us off our feet. Let us all shed a tear with every heart-wrenching love story that our protagonists find themselves in. And may we all close that book with a smile in our hearts knowing that, in the end, love conquered all. Oh, the magic of falling in love! And it will be more delightful when I get to share them with you.

Wait for my reviews about the books that I read. I am an avid reader of romance books and I cannot wait to share my great finds with you. You can check my library of books of talented authors. I highly recommend them. I have also noted down the books that I am currently reading so stick around to know what I have to say about them. Of course, you can also share your thoughts and feelings about these books. It would be a lot more fun that way!

In CarolAnnJohnson.net, we also take time to reflect and pray. You can read the books of the bible on our website. We also publish scriptures for the week so that our souls will be nourished even deeper by God’s love. I believe that we should delight ourselves in the Lord and He will sustain us not just each passing day, week, month, but His love for us is for eternity.

You can also advertise your services on my page – whatever it may be. I will make a space for you so that you can reach out to our friends and readers here. Just contact me for the details.

Thank you for visiting my page. Take a ride with me.

I Confess: Rejection

I have been rejected many times throughout the course of my writing career. I confess it hurts to know that the editor did not like my work. Just imagine the disappointment I felt each time I received the rejection letters. Or worse, some companies will not even humor me with one. It is as if they did not receive anything. Either that or what they read was a piece of trash for them. Totally not worth their time. And it hurts because I worked hard for those manuscripts and articles. I have spent sleepless nights squeezing the creative juices out of my mind and pounding the keyboard to finish what I felt was a masterpiece.

It is tough to work in the writing industry. But I am not sharing this with you to discourage you. I have confessed my challenging experiences because I wanted you to know that rejections are a part of life. We do not always get what we want. But if we work hard enough, if we pursue our dreams with a passion, then sooner or later we are going to reach our dreams. I have always said that writing is my joy and passion. It is such a big part of who I am. And now, I am truly grateful to our Lord for the talent He has given me. I am thankful for the support and love of my family. And I thank my publishers and editors who believed in my talent.

I would like to think that I would still continue to write even if my articles and books were not published. But this has given me a golden opportunity to share my talent with you. That is why we are all here now.

Rejection is just one way to toughen us up and prepare us for the real world. It also makes us appreciate what we have been given a little bit more.
