How a Writer Looks for Mistakes

Because I want it to be as clean as possible. Here's the thing about proof edits. They might be considered the 'simplest' edits but... Continue Reading →

Birdie Has Left the Building

Yesterday I sent my second wedding planner manuscript to my editor to start detailed edits. YAY!

It’s All about Attitude

For my recent birthday, one of my friends gave me this button. And I laughed out loud when I saw it and wore it proudly all day long. Putting aside the humor, I think it holds an important message, and no it's not that I expect people to curtsy when they see me. That would... Continue Reading →

Step Away from the Manuscript!

I am at a monumental place in my self-pub process. I equate it to a Mama Bird pushing her baby out of the nest for the first time. I am sending my Mind Sweeper manuscript to a formatter to prepare it for both the digital and print formats needed to publish my book. I should... Continue Reading →
