Mistakes we make as writers… then make again…                 Have you ever noticed that your creative spurts and inspirational deficits come in cyclic fashion? We get on a roll with writing and then for some reason or other (usually life) we stop being able to write. That flow that was coming so easily now just …
Writers are dreamers, but they also want to make money for themselves. We all have hobbies, and these might not make us much money, but we love to do them anyways.  Money isn’t the issue in a passion for something we love- it’s the fact we have the time to do it. There is nothing …
Years ago no one cared to admit that they might have self-published a book.  Years ago, to self-publish meant that you didn’t “have what it took” to find that publisher willing to take on your book, and when you shared with a potential reader that your book was self-published, the chances grew that they would not buy …

I am publishing a book, and I am scared. The things that scare me the most are what my readers’ thoughts and opinions are: •What did they think as they read my book? •Were they able to feel a connection with my characters and storyline? •Could they envision themselves as one of the characters in my book? …
