Self Publishing

I know the controversy and I've studied the argument, but I have to defend SP and my fellow cohorts in the industry. All I have ever wanted is to write and to publish, but reality hinders this dream when the bills pile up and life dictates our life goals. Self-publishing has allowed me to realize my dream without waiting around for a pay check to materialize as a result of the luck of the agent draw. Sure, I would LOVE to have an agent and to sell bushels of books, but when I held my debut novel in my hands and knew without a doubt that is was a QUALITY piece of work, my dreams  all came true. Oh, yea, I will still push those queries and search for an agent savior, but self-publishing has given me hope before it's too late to accomplish my goal.
It gets better...a fellow author, Kristen Kehoe, received Honorable Mention in the 2011 Reader's Choice contest with her novel Finding You. Kimberly Norton came in second place with The Crystal Princess. These are two very impressive stories, quality work, quality publishing...I am proud to be self-published. I would love to do this for a living, but I am happy to do it for the love of writing.

BORED? ARE YOU A COUCH POTATO?

                                                                 Bored? Are you a couch potato? If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done. As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).  The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a

Taopatch = scam?

So, as I sit fuming about not receiving my TaoPatch order within the promised time, this article popped up on my computer screen. I fear I may have been swindled. Oh, well, won't be the first time.                                                        MS patient shines a light on the harms of misleading media messages https://www.healthnewsreview.org/2018/05/ms-patient-ed-tobias/ https://www.amazon.com/Have-Whats-Your-Super-Power/dp/1882658442/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=i+have+ms.+what%27s+your+superpower&qid=1556457191&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull
