Technology really pisses me off sometimes. It’s meant to make our lives easier, but it really just drives me up a fucking wall. As some of you may know, I’ve been organizing a Book Festival (May 14th for those of you in the Bergen County area) which so far has been not too difficult. The… Continue reading Email List from Hell
As upon request, I will take you through my journey on how I found my current editor and explain a little bit about why I chose them. The downfall to self-publishing is that you do everything yourself (which is also the positive). This means during your first experience i.e. your first book, you will make… Continue reading Picking an editor
For the past few days I’ve been editing which, if you’ve read my previous post, can be fun and awful. In the last post I wrote about how awful it was and how all I wanted to do was take a red pen and write a giant ‘X’ through all of it. Today my mood… Continue reading First time editing
Since St. Patrick’s Day just past, I was reminded of the drabble I wrote a year ago with Finley’s first St. Patrick’s Day. For whatever reason it brought me to the relationship between Finley and Theodore (whom everyone seems to love). Someone asked me a month or two ago how they had met or how… Continue reading Theodore and Finley
Here I am on a nice sunny day, window open, music playing nicely behind me, and I’m editing my own work and all I want to do is burn it up. While I’m editing my sister and mom usually are proof reading other parts and I just can’t help but sit behind my desk thinking,… Continue reading Editing can be brutal
Yesterday someone asked me where this urge for writing came from that lead me to self-publish. I can’t for the life of me remember if I ever went into detail about this on my blog, but I am today! Rewind to little Dylann struggling through school, during my time in the fifth grade I basically… Continue reading You believe what?!
And just like that a blog post pops into my brain. I was sitting nicely in front of my computer earlier this afternoon thinking to myself ‘self, what can I possible write about today?’ Since my mind has been focused 90% on this event I’m planning, I had squat. Naturally, I exited my wordpress and… Continue reading Your caps-lock is on
Curse my stupid mind! I keep forgetting my Storm Trilogy Sunday’s, but at least this time I had a good excuse. The Spring book festival I posted about a few weeks ago is now in effect! I’m in the mist of signing authors up and planning panels so my brains a bit scattered at the… Continue reading Storm Trilogy!
Whenever I’m going through a situation either among my family or just person stuff, I try to understand the opposing side. I think that’s what makes my mind so fucked up. It’s like a back and forth tennis match that no one seems to win. My brain understands that things aren’t black and white. I… Continue reading What I find odd
Welcome to my random ramblings! I’ve been thinking about doing some kind of spring book fest in my area for a while now. For what ever reason, some places I’ve contacted about setting this up aren’t too keen on having one. It really doesn’t make much sense to me though. All you really need is… Continue reading Spring Book Festival
