writers and notebooks #amwriting #giftideas #authors

No. We may think so if we don’t actually use them after getting them, but what if an inspirational moment strikes at a random … Read More writers and notebooks #amwriting #giftideas #authors

We strive to meet the 50k count, 60k, 100k but is it about getting to that number? Or we strive to have a certain amount of chapters and get stressed out as soon as we get to the last one. … Read More Does writing speed matter? Does the word amount count? #authorthoughts

23 days until release of Follow the Snowflakes- Post # 3 (see pinned post for contest rules) #swag #bookswag #contest #prereleaseparty @kernerangelina

Over the years, we had road trips and or Amtrak trips to see them. I have never been there during winter, only … Read More 23 days until release of Follow the Snowflakes- Post # 3 (see pinned post for contest rules) #swag #bookswag #contest #prereleaseparty @kernerangelina

When one walks into a branch (at least in California), it’s all about the look. The tellers, the bankers, the managers … Read More 24 days until release of Follow the Snowflakes- Post # 2 (see pinned post for contest rules)
