I have avoided this debate for a while now, but with several books on the way to being published this year and next, I have to face this question soon enough.  What should I do with my e-book and should I use a DRM for this one? When I published my first book, in 2011, …
Quote by Winston Churchill There are always distractions for a writer. I’ve heard this phrase many times in my life, and it generally goes like this: “So when are you going to stop dreaming?”  Even after I’ve spent hours writing, and reading, and working on books, I still hear that phrase. I’m sure we’re all familiar …
Friends are always needed when writing or editing or publishing, so without anymore of us writing our thanks, here is the lovely Breann on that very topic: When Rebecca asked me to write a blog entry for her writing blog I was a little nervous. I’m not very good with people. I never know what …
Ruts are nasty beasts. We call them many things: writer’s block, disillusionment, burn out, needing a mental break.  Whatever we want to call it, it’s still a rut, a dark place no one wants to be in, but each of us will eventually find ourselves trapped in its talons.  We might see the light of …

I make a mistake.  I made a mistake.  I missed a mistake.  Sounds horrible doesn’t it?  No one likes to admit it when they make some sort of mistake, and, if it is pointed out to them, well, then it is not their fault.  It’s because of something else. That is why everything begins as …
I could say that anything you do you can always do better, but that would sound a bit cliche.   Anyone can do anything that they try to and put their minds to, but at some point, all to often, there is something that “gives.”  You know that moment.  Take a blog for example. You …
“It’s all about money.”  “It is all about family.”  “It’s all about my book.”  “It’s all about editing.”  “It’s all about publishing.”  “It’s all about balance.”  “It’s all about success.”  “It’s all about you.”  What ever your reason to publish a book, you are the master. You have heard the term “self-publishing” before and probably …
