I recently talked to a friend who was having an article published in a well-known, highly competitive magazine. She hasn't yet taken the jump to have a web presence. I tend to forget that I spend thousands of hours online, receive hundreds of newsletters each month and answer over 1000 emails a month. I don't realize that the words "blog," "SEO," "keywords," "meta tags," and even "book marketing" are not terms most people go to bed thinking about. Or get up at 2 a.m. when you can't sleep and… Continue

In my years of physical darkness, folks have made comments like, "Look at this." Or "Let me show you." Show me? They forget all I can do is hear, and at best, feel. But phrases have become so commonly used that they lose their literal meaning.
And when it comes to making comments about my looks (which is nothing to write home about), they must know I cannot verify in the mirror remarks like, "Janet, you don’t have any wrinkles."
Part of me wants to grip them in a big hug… Continue

By Sherryle Kiser Jackson, author of Soon and Very Soon
Someone estimated that everybody gets about 15 minutes of fame. It would suggest that the recognition we receive as writers for our works will ultimately subside to make way for someone else’s time. When does our 15 minutes begin? Is it when you have crystallized a theme or idea in your mind and proudly announce to friends and loved ones, “I am writing a book?” Is it the minute you learn to juggle the creative and business side… Continue

Plagiarism - How to Find Out if Someone is Plagiarizing Your Work
By Robert Nahas
With the infiltration of Internet venues that harbor and propagate pseudo professional and fraudulent "writers" - even encouraging it by "looking the other way" - there has been a significant rise in plagiarism of the protected works of professional writers. Though hard numbers have not yet been established, this writer, after a great deal of research, estimates that it has risen by as much as 42… Continue

Have you ever savored something so delicious that your taste buds jumped and screamed, "Where you been all my life?"
I had that experience Saturday night. Hubby and I attended a wedding, gorgeous event. We brought a piece of the homemade wedding cake home. I sunk my teeth into it. And I think my eyes crossed from the delight. It was simply out of this world, to die for, and finger- lickin’ good. (I think that’s enough clichés.)
The wedding reception was nestled in the… Continue

To my Ning friends,
There is an excellent article entitled Gold Fever! in the January/February 2008 issue of The History Channel Magazine. This article details the lust for riches in the Klondike area of Alaska at the turn of the 20th century.
The article by Mike Coppock notes that the gold fortunes from the Klondike funded Mack Trucks, Gruman's Chinese Theater, Madison Square Gardens, the Brown Derby restaurant, real-estate holdings and even an ice-cream empire. Old west… Continue

Oh what glory it truly is to be sitting in His Presence. Once that Presence envelops you, you feel like Peter on the Mount of Configuration when he wanted to build a tent and stay there forever. It’s as if you’ve suddenly come face to face with a little fawn in the woods. You hardly dare to breathe for fear that you’ll disturb that magical moment as in a flash it’ll be gone forever.
It’s so wonderful just to sit in peace and not have to say a thing. The pains, concerns and trials you… Continue
