Road to Valentines Day

I’m not usually a big celebrator of Valentines Day but I thought it might be fun to share some of my favorite books and book accessories leading up to the holiday for those who needs gift ideas or are looking for books to read themed for the holiday. Let’s start today! Day 1: Disney ValentinesContinue reading “Road to Valentines Day”

Spotify Playlist for Writing

When I write I find that music helps me concentrate, and I always try to find music that goes with the theme of what I’m writing at the time. In the case of A Royal Mind, I felt it had a Celtic feeling to it and I found a playlist on Spotify that served asContinue reading “Spotify Playlist for Writing”

It’s Almost Time!

In 6 DAYS my first novel A Royal Mind will be published. I am so excited and nervous. I started working on it last year and I used the summer to finish to the first draft before starting back to school in the Fall. I’m glad I did because last semester was one of theContinue reading “It’s Almost Time!”

NanoWriMo Day???

I’ve lost track of my NanoWriMo days. Looking back it probably wasn’t realistic for me to make the goal of writing every day and getting a total of 50,000 words by the end of the month DURING finals. I’ve done my best to keep writing every day or at least every other- but it’s beenContinue reading “NanoWriMo Day???”

NanoWriMo: Day 2

Sooooo… I almost called day a two a complete failure. I ran out of time to write because of school work and sticky wallpaper. I ended up having a paragraph written for day two. Only a paragraph. A total of 64 words. Great going, I thought to myself, day 2 and you’ve already dropped theContinue reading “NanoWriMo: Day 2”

NanoWriMo: Day 1

I’m new to the writing community. I’ve written for years but since publishing my first book last year I’ve tried joining writing communities and groups because I wanted to get to know other writers as well as promote my book. I stumbled upon the term NanoWriMo last month and had no idea what people wereContinue reading “NanoWriMo: Day 1”

Judging a Book by Its Cover

The age old saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, is one I ignore every time I scan the shelves for a new book to read. I know that’s awful but if a book doesn’t have a professional or interesting looking cover, then I’m not going to be curious enough to read the synopsisContinue reading “Judging a Book by Its Cover”

A New Adventure

Last year I published my first book, a children’s book series called Adelyn’s Amazing Adventures. I learned a lot while writing and afterward trying to market and push my book to the public. I also learned one of my biggest flaws is not one helpful to someone trying to self-publish a book. One of myContinue reading “A New Adventure”

Book Blizzard

If you are like most people you may have been without power over the last few weeks or maybe you are still struggling with the affects of the terrible February winter storm. It seems like we excitedly welcomed 2021, thinking it would be better than 2020, and though there have been a couple good moments,Continue reading “Book Blizzard”
