Before we get down to it... Happy Birthday, Dad! Love you! ·•◊♦◊•· Okay. This week (yesterday, in fact), we in the Northern Hemisphere saw summer officially arrive.

This week, my inspirational quote is a little different than usual. Father's Day is Sunday, so that's where my thoughts are---not on the week behind me, but on a day coming up. I've been blessed with many wonderful examples of fatherhood. My grandfather and my father were everything a girl could have asked for: strong, … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

New Release: The CONTRACT Between Heaven and Earth by John W. Howell and Gwen M. Plano

I don't think the joys of networking can be stressed enough. Too often authors seek and receive advice on writing, editing, publishing, and promotion, but networking gets overlooked in the commotion. And that's a shame because it's such a beautiful thing. It lets us build bridges, forge friendships, and share fabulous content with our readers … Continue reading New Release: The CONTRACT Between Heaven and Earth by John W. Howell and Gwen M. Plano

I feel my horizons … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Ciao, everyone. Hope you're having a great week. Clearly, three-day weekends screw me up. All week long, I struggled to realize what day it was. Tuesday felt like Monday. I thought it was Thursday twice, neither time on Thursday. The only reason I'm getting this posted on time is that my daughter said something about … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Are you sick of me asking where the week went? I am. But I still can't believe how fast the days are passing. (I'd say I sound like an old lady, but my kids would agree too quickly. And enthusiastically.) Anyway, this week's post spoke to me because I spent a good chunk of my … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Book Review: C. S. Boyack’s The Yak Guy Project

Imagine waking up in the desert with no idea what happened to you. You have clear memories of situations and places, but a complete loss in personal matters... like your own name. This situation is bad, and you have no idea how to get home. When you're rescued by a talking yak, the situation gets … Continue reading Book Review: C. S. Boyack’s The Yak Guy Project

Ciao, everybody! I hope you had a great week. Mine, as always, was a busy one. In honor of the Royal Wedding, I chose a quote from Meghan Markle. Even though we're in different industries (I'm a writer and she's an actress --- well, probably not even that anymore), the quote applies. For that matter, … Continue reading Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links
