I don't know about you, but I think there is something truly magical about an autographed book. For just a split second, it's like the author's life and yours meet, intertwine, and then part ways again, sometimes leaving such an impressive mark on your soul that you'll cherish the experience fondly for the rest of your life.
I personally have a collection of signed books that I've received over the years. My most prized is a signed copy of Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, and I hope to have these signed books in my collection for a long time =).
Now obviously I'm not a famous author yet, but things are moving and shaking and going forward, so I thought I would put this out there and see what happens ;). If you're interested in a signed copy of any of the above pictured titles, keep reading for more info and instructions =).
Some thoughts on making major life changes and a caution: do NOT rely on ANYONE for support, ESPECIALLY family, while you are making any major life changes.
I'm sharing this personal experience in hopes that it will help someone else who is attempting to quit a bunch of vices and overhaul their life. It can get super rough and very painful and emotionally draining, especially if you happen to be an empath. But I have unwavering faith that everything happens for a reason and will work out the way it is supposed to, so hopefully my experiences can help others to develop that same kind of faith.
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 =).
