The other day, my oldest daughter and I went for a walk along some old, abandoned railroad tracks near our house. These tracks happen to lead to an amazing little spot by the river, so I thought I would share this footage with you guys =). Enjoy! It is beautiful out here!
The CURRENCY I work with and understand
is emotions, time,
meals cooked, tears on my shoulders,
and ears full of ventings about
whatever may ail you or your mind at the moment.
The world does not understand this particular type of currency, although I think it should.
One of the things I've heard from people my entire life is how talented I am. And no, this isn't some arrogant post about how awesome I am or how great my work is, toot-effing-toot of my own horn kind of thing. I'm not like that, and anyone who knows me can attest to that. However, when it comes to actually achieving anything, it was never my "talent" that got me much of anywhere (although it did play a part). It's always been a struggle, and my inner child often asks, "Well, if I supposedly have all this talent, then why am I still struggling every single day?" It's relatively simple, but a little anticlimactic.
What if I told you that working toward anything in life requires at least a little bit of mindfulness if it's going to be successful? I've spent the last month ruminating on how I can get from where I am to where I want to be, especially financially. Shortly after I made my decision to only work on No Bull Self-Publishing and the Infiltration Trilogy this year, I was presented with an unexpected opportunity....

I don't know about you, but I love going back and looking through old mementos, past writings, photos, scrapbooks, artwork, and song lyrics. It's amazing how much you can remember when things are documented! Anyway, I thought it would be fun to post about my adventures recording a demo EP when I was 14 years old, and the article I wrote for the online publication I worked for based on that experience. Slightly cheesy, oh yes. But I'm not ashamed ;). It was sooooo much fun!!!
This is my favorite question that came up during a Facebook event I did toward the end of August, 2016 to promote my book, Fibers. My answer may or may not surprise you, but I think this question deserves a more thorough answer than I gave during the high-speed promo event, so read on to find out more =).
The extended 16-week blog tour has officially begun, with the first stop residing at Rogue's Angels! These awesome bloggers also chose to interview me, and like so many on this tour, had some pretty cool questions to ask. Read on for a sneak peek =).
My last stop on the blog tour was on Friday, and that concludes the standard tour, aaawww. I'm doing something slightly different this time and replying to comments here, all in the same place, and you can feel free to read the full post at The Cerebral Writer blog.
This stop on the blog tour was at Long and Short Reviews, and I won't lie - when I visited the site to see what other authors had posted, I saw a lot of romance-oriented books and felt a bit out of place. However, no one says that any reader only likes one genre, so I wrote my post to illustrate my writing style: with an excerpt that had not been previously used on the blog tour =).
