The Day I Died

I never review books on this blog, but today I'm going to talk about a book I recently read that I think might interest some of you. From time to time I've mentioned my ongoing battle with depression and how it has affected my life, particularly my writing (or more specifically my inability to write). …

Reigning In An Out Of Control Day.

Good advice from author, Misty Harvey.

Hello, Readers!

Yesterday was one of those days where everything was off. I had stayed up way too late the night before after taking a weekend mostly to myself. That meant I got up later. Which in turn made my starting time later. And so on and so forth.

Once one thing went off course it snowballed out of control until I was left feeling like a failure on so many levels. I wanted to cry. It had gotten so bad for me.

It Takes a Village to Publish a Book

I've been seeing a trend over the past couple of years (maybe longer) where self-published authors are beginning to cast away the title "self-published" in favor of "independently published author," or "indie author." I love the title "independently published author." Now, this isn't to say I'm opposed to the term "self-published." In fact, I use …
