Growing Up…Slowly (Indie Chicks Crosspost)

I’m trying to get caught up on oodles of responsibilities, but it seems like a never-ending battle.  In the crossfire, this poor blog drops to the wayside.  Two years ago, I posted every day.  Now, I’m lucky to remember to post once a week.  It’s funny how quickly life changes. This post was originally published…


Playing Catch Up…

The story of my life is… BUSY.  Let’s catch up a bit. *** On the book end (hehe, bookend), I’ve put out some books this year.  Surprisingly, the focus has been on the young adult genre so far, which is completely strange to me as I never felt the urge to write YA before.  Heaven…


Guest Post – Carol Davis Luce

Carol Davis Luce Self-taught Late Bloomer My motto is, “If I can do it, anyone can do it.” I wasn’t born to write. I didn’t aspire to be a writer from the time I could hold a Crayon. I could, however, draw, and make things take shape through form and color on paper and canvas,…


Barbara Silkstone – Have You Ever Lost a Hat?

I lost everything including my home, my car, and even my retirement accounts. I was physically attacked inside and outside a court building. My daughter and baby granddaughter were threatened. I came at the bad guys like a mother tiger. A few years earlier I had agreed to testify against a real estate developer in…


Guest Post – Sibel Hodge

Sibel Hodge From 200 rejections to Amazon top 200! Ever since I was old enough to scrawl my first word, which was Halibaaaaa, I knew I wanted to write books. OK, so the word didn’t actually make sense, and it might take a little longer for me to actually string a whole sentence together, but…


Guest Post – Christine DeMaio-Rice

I have quite a few regular clients for formatting, and they’re all pretty rockin’.  One of the aspects I’ve truly, truly enjoyed about building the CyberWitch business is the fact that I’ve found some great relationships in the people I work for.  I recently posted Dani Amore’s Indie Chicks post–she’s one of those clients.  Today’s…


Guest Post – Cheryl Bradshaw “Just Me and James Dean”

I have been painfully remiss in my blogging.  For the first half of February, I was INSANELY busy with formatting jobs.  I’m not sure I took a deep breath for three weeks.  Which is probably why I then managed to get sick with some kind of lovely chest infection.  I’ve been fighting it all week. …


Guest Post – Dani Amore “Writing From a Flour Sack”

Dani Amore Writing From a Flour Sack Fact: I was born on a bathroom floor. Literally. My arrival into this world was followed seconds later by an unceremonious drop onto the cold tile of St. John’s Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. You see, I was the fifth out of six children. My mother knew my delivery…


Guest Post: Sarah Woodbury – Turning Medieval

Turning Medieval by Sarah Woodbury Sometimes it’s easy to pinpoint those moments in your life where everything is suddenly changed.  When you look across the room and say to yourself, I’m going to marry him.  Or stare down at those two pink lines on the pregnancy test, when you’re only twenty-two and been married for…


I Burned My Bra For This? -Guest Post by Cheryl Shireman

I Burned My Bra For This? One Woman’s Fantasy   By Cheryl Shireman   I’m a Baby Boomer. Which means that I remember bell-bottoms, Happy Days, and having only three channels on the television. I played Donny Osmond albums on a record player. My parents watched Gunsmoke, and on Sunday nights we all watched The…
