The Food Blog Is Functional!

When I made the decision in early 2015 to combine all my blogs into one, self-hosted site, it simplified some stuff for me, bringing everything under one umbrella.  Which de-simplified things for many of my readers, as I had completely separate audiences for my food blog than I did for my writer’s blog and merging […]

On Leveling Up and Finding The Way

Operation G.I.T. My brain has been all over the place this week.  I’m closer to back in the groove of normal schedule, but not quiet there.  Mornings after taekwondo are always the hardest for sticking to my vow to get up and write before walking the dogs and the gym.  I don’t get to bed […]…ch…Changing…

Okay, before I get into the meat of this post, I have to get in my shameless plug.  If you haven’t already nabbed this one, now’s the time, as its enrollment in KDP Select is up next week, and I’ll be rolling it out to other retailers.   Now, on to the topic at hand. […]

Quick Update

Busy busy at the office today (is there any other kind of Monday?).  But I’m hanging out in a guest post over at Molly Greene’s today talking about my journey from self publishing to the traditional path and back again.

It’s spawned a great deal of introspection and […]

Dear Void, I Love You

It seems that I’ve read a slough of posts by bloggers lately where they are apologizing to their readers for having fallen off the face of the planet and making the confession that they don’t really like blogging, it’s a huge time suck, and they’d rather be writing fiction anyway. Such posts usually leave me […]

The Friday Fab: A Link Roundup

I’m short on time again today, so rather than try to rip something interesting out, I am going to point you in the direction of the great stuff I’ve read this week. Jami Gold talks about How To Make the Most of a Scene. And if that doesnt’ work, Melinda S. Collins talks about how […]

The Correct Way To Share

Social media is a great thing.  It is a lynchpin to any good platform that our content be shared.  Our mamas all taught us that sharing is a good thing.  But when it comes to sharing intellectual property like blog posts and the like, there is a right and a wrong way to go about […]
