Conflict…

On Wednesdays I like to share information, the kind of stuff I wish someone would have shared with me when I started on my writing, publishing and marketing journey. Writer Wednesday

Typewriter Pink

Writing Conflict I have always had trouble writing conflict, the fiction type that is. My first 3 books are nonfiction and based on conflict so I only had to write what happened, in my own words.

Between The Lines; it’s My Turn…

“When I started blogging five-years-ago, one of the first blogs I came across was Katherine’s Corner. We had more than a few things in common and I knew I liked her. When she put the word out that she wanted to do a series on mid-life women bloggers of course I wanted to be part of the fun!”

Joy is inspiration for the New Year…

It truly never is too late for firsts and December 25, 2015 was the first time I ever went to see a movie on Christmas Day. I was amazed to find the theatre so full that we had to sit in the front row. It wasn’t so bad thanks to the reclining seats at our local Regal. Despite some lukewarm reviews I was looking forward to seeing, Joy.

Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DiNiro and Bradley Cooper reunite in, Joy their third David O Russell written and directed film.

Media Kits…

Writing Wednesday

Typewriter Pink

Wednesday is the day I share what I have learned on my journey from writing to publication, marketing and writing and publishing again. If you have any questions please feel free to leave them in the comments and I will do my best to answer them. If you have any tips please share them with us…

Media Kits

Once you become a published author you have no idea who may be stalking visiting your website. If a member of the media visits looking for information on you and/ or your book what will they find? Professional bloggers should have media kits too.
