2019 New Ventures for Gabrielle Faust
The past couple of months have been a whirlwind of changes. From the launch of my new review blog site The G Spot, to the forthcoming opening of Ice Pick's Pies, and re-launch of my FAUST line of luxury organic soaps, 2019 is going to explode come the first week of the year.
The G Spot has already garnered nearly 600 views since its unveiling at the first week of December! I have no doubt that it will continue to grow, and with the vast amount of travel I have planned for 2019, I will have plenty of content to provide my readership.
Ice Pick's Pies will be launching January 8th, 2019. The website is currently 90% complete -- just a few more product photos to take before it is all done.
And lastly, the FAUST soaps will become available the last week of December. I have four scents planned for the initial launch which will be available via my website, as well as local Austin boutiques. Currently I can confirm that Secret Oktober will be carrying the soaps. Be sure to check back for additional retailers soon!
All the while I am chipping away at my novel. It's been an emotionally tumultuous time for me the past few months so I've been focusing on projects that have a set completion list. Writing a novel, while an outline can provide you a direction, is often extremely emotional to work on. And Fractured is most definitely emotional for me, tapping into a lot of old wounds, and familial issues which I have yet to make peace with since my mother's passing in September. I must approach this manuscript with care to ensure the message within is not lost in a tsunami of raw emotion. But have not fear, the book is still in the works with plans of completion in the new year.
I am walking into 2019 with a renewed sense of purpose and a whole lot of positivity. Thank you to everyone who has continued to cheer me on. I will not let you down!!!!
