If you become a self-published power machine, you must do it all yourself until youContinue reading “To be indie – not as I imagined”

Sunday Snippet – Spring Blight
Slowly rising, the witch created a shield in her mind. The mirror spell Skarbnik taught her in the Grey mountains had already saved her life once before, and with her mind protected, Ina felt more confident about facing the malicious spirit in her own domain. ‘Leave her,’ The witch commanded, pulling out her sword. MamunaContinue reading “Sunday Snippet – Spring Blight”
Uncertaintly of Joy
KENP read in February Something worked, but I don’t know what, and it kills me. I’m not a successful author meaning I can’t solely sustain myself and my family from my writing work.

You are such a good girl.
I just came back from work and I’m trying to rub two brain cells together to scramble and make a post for Sunday. It was a difficult day. We were heavily understaffed and patients came in such numbers we it was a Black Friday sale in ED. Still despite my registrar calling in sick, IContinue reading “You are such a good girl.”
Bookish Sunday- a couple of great news and announcements.

I’m not sure what happened but thank you so much, Deutschland! Second, on Thursday, we had our second book back fromContinue reading “Bookish Sunday- a couple of great news and announcements.”
