Finally another post!!

My heavens. It has been a long time since I posted here. Thank you to those of you who have missed me. We’ve all been through periods when we have too much going on at once, and I am in the midst of one such period now. For the first time in 16 years, I am getting my house ready to sell. If you’ve never been through this process, believe me it will eat you up. You live for years …

Should I self-publish my novel?

“Now we’re in business.” It’s an old expression we’ve all heard a million times, and its meaning is obvious.  When we say we’re in business, we mean things are working.  Things are looking good.  Now, we can get something done. Whether we have our own gig, are employed in companies large, midsize, or small, or make a living in the nonprofit world, lots of things have to work right so we can be in business.  If we don’t have supplies …
