Patience Really Is A Virtue

Anyone who has ever worked with me can attest that there is usually a method to my madness. As in painting, I study the composition and take in everything. Starting from the outside in, I get to know the author and their work so I can add the ‘heartbeat’ to their work. Sound strange? It isn’t but it creates an awful problem for me… authors are not patient clients.



I have heard it all and it always ends with: ‘… but I am so impatient’.



Well, think of this: it is very… Continue

Warning: Be Careful Who You Hire

In order to see things from different perspectives, I have been known to ‘experiment’ at times.



When I was 19, I wanted to see how handicapped people were really treated. I went to Manhattan with a girlfriend and ‘posed’ as a blind person for a day. It was an extremely enlightening experience. Only a ‘non-New Yorker’ will stereotype a typical New Yorker as being heartless for that day proved to me why I am proud to be a New Yorker. I had strangers help me on all counts with not one… Continue

The Very Best of Both Worlds

My business has no boundaries creatively or demographically. Thanks to 21st century technology, my virtual team is scattered throughout the United States: I have proofreaders and editors in New York and Texas, IT personnel in California, Philadelphia and South Carolina, camera crews on the west and east coast, public relations associates throughout the country and the list goes on. The irony of my business is that within a team of many, I have only personally met two members but our connection… Continue

Maintaining Your Control When Working With A Design Firm

LIKE ANYTHING ELSE, you hire a designer for their expertise and their insight. If your car didn't run, you wouldn't tell your mechanic how to fix it. Your mechanic knows the best way to make your car go. A

good designer will help make your business "go," and if you are willing to trust in their expertise, they will likely lead your project in a direction that will benefit you. In most cases, your role in the process of working with a designer should be one of information delivery and… Continue

GENTLE RAINS


A TIME TO HEAL WITH GENTLE RAINS
THEIR SOUND IS SOFT AND SWEET
THEY HEAL A DEAD AND LONELY HEART
OR THOSE WHO FACE DEFEAT
THE SOFT CARESS OF RAIN DROPS
THE DEEPENED THUNDERS ROAR
I'LL LISTEN TO MY GENTLE RAINS
TILL I FEEL PAIN NO MORE

Hi Judi

You seem like you would be interested in this new forum for self-publishers.
http://www.selfpublishersplace.com/

It's new and not heavily trafficked, but I think it as potential. You can promote yourself shamelessly there and I think you could offer some good stuff to people in the forum.

Hello –
How’s the writing going? Just thought I’d pass along
some websites you might be interested in.
http://www.joafulkerson.com where you can read the
first chapter of FOR LOVE OF TEDDY. This is the
story of a high school senior who takes a stand against drug
dealers…and WINS. It’s the first of several I plan to write to
reach out to at risk kids and teens who might not have
anywhere else to turn when faced with crises in their lives.
