Growing Pains…DIY Audiobook, Tougher Than They Say

I can't afford to shell out the hundreds of dollars to a narrator. I have a fear of commitment.

Growing Pains…Rewriting Content in Published Books

I am beginning to see a lot of things fall in place, slowly. These little … Continue reading Growing Pains…Recognizing How Ignorant You WERE Is a Weird Feeling.

Growing Pains…Mistake Number ??? Not Realizing How Willing Your Friends Are There To Help

Sure, I had my friend Karol and my mom read ENDLESS pages of my first draft, revisions, and umpteenth revisions of my first and second books. They were helpful and I was grateful.
