Yeah, yeah, there's new tech parameters and a paradigm shift and all that.

But the important thing is that there are (and always have been) alternatives to writing something then trying to sell the rights to a publishing company. This group is to explore these areas of self-owned publishing biz.

Some writers have niche books, some have special needs (like texts for their seminars), some are just too entrepreneurial to sell of their own inspirations. And some just want to see something in print.

There is a spectrum these days, from big publishers through the new, small POD publishers, to using publishing services like or iuniverse, to printing yourself and selling online, to release of downloadable mp3 "podcasts" or pdf manuals.

If you have expertise, experience, or questions in this area, don't be shy about posting them here. It's a rapidly expanding field and nobody knows everything about it, but lots of us are learning enough to do what we want to do and successfully get it across the counter.

The Kingdom Dream Journal 

It is amazing how the Lord speaks to us. In dreams, through visions, words of knowledge, prophetic words spoken by others and in those Kingdom circles when prophecy bubbles forth, as moved by the Spirit. 
Never knowing when God might speak to us, this book is made available for that very reason. As a journal and a way to keep track of those life-changing revelations that come to us in sometimes the most unexpected moments. 
By writing these important matters down, we have the opportunity to reflect upon them as time goes by, pray around them and to faithfully watch for them to come to pass. Have you ever been there? Months go by, sometimes years go by and those precious dreams, visions or words from the Lord slowly seem to fade from our memories? 
With this journal, and the simplicity of writing our revelations down, they will not simply fade from our memories. They will be recorded like as fresh manna for us to review and bring into remembrance as time passes. 
You will also find scriptures in the back of this book that will cover such topics as prophecy, dreams, visions, words of knowledge, revelation, the Spirit of Christ, the operation of the Holy Spirit and many others things that can help you to deepen your understanding surrounding how God can speak to you and manifest Himself to you.

Hi everyone,

I’m pleased to announce that my contemporary romance, A DECEPTIVE MATCH, was just released. This hot romance novel is set in the world of professional wrestling.
Here’s the summary:
A Deceptive Match

Falling for the wrestler she had been assigned to interview wasn’t part of Danni’s plan, until Vinnie Valentine pinned her heart in a flash.

Disgruntled with her job as the office assistant for a national sports magazine, Danni Stone impersonates a reporter to prove herself to her boss. Her assignment? Spend thirty days on the road with Vinnie Valentine, a sexy professional wrestler.

Life isn’t going well for the Heavyweight Champ. Vinnie is struggling with a manipulative boss, prepping for the most important match of his career, and feuding with his arch-enemy, Thorn. The last thing he needs is a nosy reporter following him around—even if she is hot.

Thrown together in close quarters, Danni can’t help falling for Vinnie, and she unwittingly becomes a key player in his title match. Their mutual attraction grows, and late one night, they give in to the lustful feelings they’ve been fighting.
As their relationship deepens, Danni considers telling Vinnie her secret. But before she can confess the truth, Vinnie discovers she isn't the reporter she claims to be. Her lie threatens to ruin everything between them. Will their relationship be destroyed by her deception or will their love win out?

Look for the follow-up book A SECRET MATCH, coming later in May.
