Starting Something New Again

If you know me at all, you know I am constantly trying something new. A few years ago I set up a YouTube page. Don’t go there now. However in the next week I will be setting it up for writers.

I’m going to do Tea…

When You think Your Book is Done

I’ve been working on a short story book. The covers are done. The epub is ready. I went to upload the PDF for the book and discover it is wrong. Eek!!!

I am not going to make the deadline for publication. Iwill not have your two week pre-sale window. …


Life in 2021 Has Been a Whirlwind

I started a side hustle in December selling Paparazzi Jewelry for $5 each piece. That side hustle has me heading toward Life of the Party-Bronze level. Never expected or planned that. It’s fun to do.

It’s a new year

My book launch on October 6th was seen by over 800 people. There was awesome interaction. Prizes were given away.

  3. Have all your trivia questions ahead of time.
  4. Find a great co-host or emcee.

It gets real when the proof copies of your new book arrive. It gets even more real when you send questions to your emcee for the virtual book launch. It’s going to happen when the gift cards you are giving as prizes arrive.

Yes, it’s real!!

This is my first shot at toddler…
