Today, I’m talking about: being vulnerable and honest about some of my experience with cancer in an article I’ve written for the Ulman Foundation, reflecting on finding my words again and using writing as a form of catharsis (not only in this article but in my novels as well). I’m also sharing an update on my #TheLeftoverBride revision which includes letting the ending of #TheLeftoverBride simmer a little and more google searches. 🙂  

I am also reading two excerpts from my revision in the past week:

CHAPTER 2 – RYAN

I still can’t believe I’m back on the East Coast. In Swan Cove. The town that’s filled with some of my best memories… and some of my worst. My plan was to go straight to my parents’ but I had to stop at the bakery. After all, Mom loves their lemon pie. And what type of son who hasn’t come home in over ten years wouldn’t get his mom her favorite dessert if he could? Nothing to do with the breathtaking redhead staring up at me like I stomped all over her heart. My jaw clenches with years of regrets, remorse and fucked-up chances.

Excerpt from #TheLeftoverBride

He must have taken lessons on how to master his puppy eyes from Fluffy Napoleon because even with the gust of arctic air sending shivers up and down my spine, I melt at the way he looks at me.

Ep. 36 – Learning from other indie authors because success isn't a pie, right? A self-published author's diary

Today, I share with you what I've done each day to increase my royalties: one step at a time. Between updating #TheLeftoverBride epilogue, starting to format another bilingual book, putting one of my books as perma-free and running a free promo on another book who is currently in KDP select, I am making progress.  Another topic I'm talking about today is dealing with feeling inadequate or not "as successful" as an indie author because those are feelings many of us have at one time or another. And a reminder that success isn't a pie and that learning from other indie authors as well as remembering what our goals are is oh so important. Also mentioned in this article: And if you'd like to listen to the FEAR ME, FEAR ME NOT audiobook, it's only one credit on Audible and you can try Audible for free!
