Read Along With Me: Me Before You

As I mentioned last month, I’ve decided to do a “book of the month” selection on this blog. As an author and someone involved in the literary community, I come across new books and authors all of the time. This year, I’ve also made a commitment to read more (and I already read a lot). The book selection for March is Me Before You. You may have heard of this one, it has received an enormous amount of praise and interest…

Read Along With Me: The Girl on the Train

I’ve been wanting to do a sort of “online book club” for a while, but never acted on it. February seems like as good a month as any to start. Basically, I’m picking a book a month to read. Just one book. The selection will vary, but I’ll be reading it, and sometime near the end of the month, I’ll write-up some thoughts about it. Some books will be romance. Some thrillers. Some classics.  Some nonfiction. And some just way…

What’s Up With WattPad

Let’s get real. I’m far from a perfect writer. On a good day, my prose is clunky, my characters flat, my scenes go nowhere, and my plots are a convoluted mess. Most days, I’m lucky eek out a few readable pages of a story. (Note: No one can beat up on themselves better that a writer. Truth is, we play with words for a living and often used them to slay ourselves. I consider myself a master at it. Even…

#NaturalLove Release Week: Party Every Day

I’m not always the best at “the art of the pause.” What I mean by this is that, in the past, I didn’t always stop to celebrate accomplishments. When I was younger (a lot younger), I was sometimes so focused on goals and projects ahead of me that I didn’t ever take a moment to save the accomplishments I did make. It was always on to the next thing, then the next, and the next. Anyone who tried to tell…
