As fellow writers will know, the submission process can be daunting and time consuming. I have been keeping track of the dates of my various submissions and am also in the process of investigating alternative publishing platforms – specifically for the poetry book. I’m not sure exactly how to release it yet. There’s still a lot to learn. For the cozy mystery, I definitely hope to have it published traditionally (which is ideally what I want for all my work, regardless of genre).
Invariably, people who don’t work in publishing or the literary field have an unrealistic idea of what it means to be a writer; and writers have an unrealistic idea of what it means to be an author. Recently, I dove deeper into research by reading David Comfort’sAn Insider’s Guide to Publishing. While I don’t approve of the language he often uses, I do highly recommend…

Several new entries have been added to the Cruelty-Free Life page. For those who don't know, this is the page where I post a list of companies I have personal experience with that make environmentally-friendly products that are vegan and cruelty-free. I've added an entry for affordable cleaning supplies and one for footwear, too!... Continue Reading →
Over the weekend, I began reorganizing my mother's bedroom and giving it a much-needed face-lift. Yesterday, I continued the process, taking a few minutes out of my day to bag some of the odds and ends she has to sort. This will make it less stressful and overwhelming. She was so surprised when she... Continue Reading →
Revisions on poetry pieces are under way! I’ve chosen the basic arrangement and exactly which poems will be in this manuscript. I’m very happy with how it’s shaping up and might begin releasing a few excerpts sometime next month.
I have been working on furthering my education in the publishing field and will be sharing a couple of good resources I’ve found to this site. I have to divide up my time now because more priorities are demanding my attention, but I will still work to update T.W.N. on schedule.
New content has been posted to S.D. Feel free to check it out! A new update will be released to the blog soon with some interesting news.
So many people have difficulty with faith or even believing that Heaven and God are real. Others struggle to stay positive these days and find a happy balance between being the better change and not allowing the world to affect them. We all have times of feeling alone or lost. Perhaps this little story... Continue Reading →
I’m pleased to announce the submission process has begun! I’m awaiting replies from a couple of agents, while also searching for others to query. I’m taking my time and being very careful, asking as many probing questions as possible. It’s the best way to avoid scams that target new authors.
For anyone looking to find a professional with good credentials to submit your work to – regardless of genre – I highly recommend using the resources of the A.A.R. or another such organization that verifies legitimacy and ethics. It means nothing if an agent themselves is also a writer or has successfully placed a lot of other authors with good publishers. These days, there are a number of people in the industry who take advantage of first-time writers. Agents who are honest and serious about their profession take the time to gain and maintain membership in A.A.R. This…
