Must we compete in spiritual matches,
against unseen, devilish competitors?
Must we needlessly suffer and find…
our souls ending up both worn and sore?
Within this fallen, earthly world,
the rulers of darkness don’t worry me;
for I know that their authority
is incapable of imprisoning completely.
Their ongoing tactics of fear,
is something that I’ve already seen.
So I’m not concerned, knowing…
that I’m a member…

Living within the house of idol makers,
the depth of my soul was perturbed.
How could one justify the worship of art?
To me, such comprehension was absurd.
And yet, it was still clear to me,
that worship was a necessary component;
so I craved a logical and moral way
to circumvent my spiritual descent.
Knocking over these impractical statues,
made from gold and various materials,
demonstrated glorification of dead…

I’ve spent the last few weeks doing a lot of marketing and promotion for my nine novels and it has paid off. My main blog, ALWAYS WRITING has reached a milestone 250,000 + page views, and the other sites that I post blog articles have reached a combined 150,000 + page views. Not bad for the twenty months they have been in existence.
Now that I’ve reached a comfortable level of exposure it’s time to get back to the business of writing books. I did manage a 20,000 word outline… Continue

There was a link on Facebook yesterday to an article written by the best-selling, crime writer, Sue Grafton. She had caused a stir by accusing indie writers of being lazy. It seems she had to withdraw the accusation because of the reaction from the public. It made me wonder what must have been going through her mind when she said that, and would she have said that before she became a published writer. The old saying “struggling in a garret” comes to mind when I think of people like myself… Continue

Excerpt from Discover What You Are Here To Do: Find The Clues, Follow Your Path by best selling author Nicola Grace.
"When I’m on the road speaking, I often joke about the story of my life as if I’ve stuffed up, done everything wrong and made wrong decisions that lead me up the garden path of nowhere. Part of my introductory speech often goes something like this – “I wanted to be a dancer so I studied history. I wanted to live in a tropical country so I moved to Wisconsin. I wanted to… Continue

Two years ago, after amicably parting ways with my literary agent of four years, I decide to take destiny into my own hands and publish my books in eformat. I had a huge collection of completed and professionally edited novels and decided that publishing one every three months seemed feasible. So, that’s what I did.
Little did I know I was on the cusp of an indie publishing revolution. My books were available at the right time, for the right audience, and at the right price. Kindles… Continue

No Chocolate on Valentine's Day for me. Chocolate is too ordinary. In fact, it has little to do with the beginning of the myths around St. Valentine and the day of love we celebrate.
Valentine's Day is a day that represents the unique emotions and experiences that love engenders. What is your unique way to express love?
For me, orchids are the most exquisitely beautiful flowers in all…
