That’s what chocolate is for.

Whew! It has been a busy couple of weeks! I know we haven’t had a chance to talk about my journey to publish my novel series for a while because my last few posts have been about author platforms. I wanted to kick off my new Resources for Authors section here on the ole blogy-blog […]

Social Media for Authors

Here we are at week three of my series on Author Platforms. This week I am focusing on social media for authors. This past weekend I attended a WordPress seminar called #PressPublish. We learned how to up our blogging game using our WordPress sites. You might not be aware that blogging is social media (SM) and it […]

And I could use some brightness right now. I thought today I would talk about a heavy topic. Query rejection. Bum, bum, bum. See, […]

Things to consider before signing with an agent
