The Thing About Professionalism

Okay, so I’m sure you’ve all read about the author meltdown that was all over the internet yesterday.  Suffice to say this woman has ruined her career and if she does want to publish, will have to go under a different name.  It’s a shame because a reaction like hers where she tells commenters not […]

So When’s the Book Coming Out? #ROW80 Update

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working. After all the baby steps I’ve been taking, I think finishing my debut is about to be kicked into high gear. I came to this conclusion because of how well things are going for me […]
