Minor Characters

During my publishing journey, I discovered a divide between readers who like minor characters to have a more active role in the plot and those who don’t. Many times editors advised to decrease the page space given to said characters in favour of the… Continue Reading “Minor Characters”

Surrender

I used to think surrendering meant giving up. It used to mean letting go in a negative way…you know, wave the white flag because you’ve lost the fight. I’ve been challenged with the idea of surrender in my yoga practice. So much of yoga… Continue Reading “Surrender”

First Review!

Regardless of what happens next, this will always go down as my first review! While I figure the negative reviews are coming, I’ll be hanging onto this one when they do. This is why I published Capturing a Countess’ Heart – I just wanted… Continue Reading “First Review!”

Five Years of Writing

The seed for Capturing a Countess’ Heart was planted late one night when I finished a swoon worthy Amanda Quick novel. I researched the author for a few minutes and realized how very normal her start was. My immediate next thought was, “I can… Continue Reading “Five Years of Writing”

Illness: A Blessing in Disguise?

In November of 2019, my body gave me lots of signs that I needed to pay attention to my health. I had two choices: succumb to fear and the very dark places your mind likes to go or realize…I have no information other than… Continue Reading “Illness: A Blessing in Disguise?”

The blurb…oh goodness the blurb…the social media campaign…the learning of each and every platform… It has taken the… Continue Reading “Saying Yes to My Goal”

I’ve entered a world I know nothing about. It completely brings to life what I learned in yoga teacher training not too long ago. There is so much I don’t know. And, although on some days that makes me want to throw my hands… Continue Reading “How to Choose What to do First?”

Fidgeting and Fussing

At yoga practice, the instructor made a comment about the ways we tend to distract ourselves on our mat when we find a pose difficult or challenging or perhaps, in our perception, too easy. If we pay attention, we can see these tendencies off… Continue Reading “Fidgeting and Fussing”

Every Little Bit Counts

Regardless of how much or how little is accomplished, I do something, anything, every day which gets me one step closer to my goal. The list is long and it is absolutely a labor of love…of passion for writing and working on getting my… Continue Reading “Every Little Bit Counts”
