One Thought Provoking Perspective on Twitter

Just because I'm uneducated about the emergence of social media such as Twitter doesn't mean everyone is.

Program is Done!

We finished the writing program and it was a blast! We created a book of the kids' short stories that will be in the school library. As we conducted the class, we developed a teacher's guide, student workbook, and PowerPoint slides. Now we are polishing these into a creative writing course that we can sell to homeschool parents.

A Wonderful Testament to 'Of Aztecs and Conquistadors'

I received a wonderful message from a lady called Darlene Campbell on Outsider Writers yesterday. Darlene is from Kentucky but has roots in the Aztec Culture and her words moved and touched me deeply. I'm so grateful that my book could engender such feelings. She has given me her permission to reproduce her words here, and this is what she had to say.

First of all, I honestly DO think this cover is awesome, and secondly, I just discovered your work and can hardly wait to read it!… Continue

How to sell that brand that is "you"

What do these leaders have in common: Lee Iacocca, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, and Michael Dell? According to a recent survey of sales professionals, these are the greatest salespeople of our time. Their very selection reinforces the concept that each of us must sell to survive. Whether you’re selling a promise to the federal government, faith to the American people, or a computer to quality-conscious consumers; whether you’re selling the importance of learning to schoolchildren,… Continue

To Russian with Love!

One of the joys of writing has been watching my stories visit lots of interesting places in the world! MAIDENSONG was my debut title (written under my real name Diana Groe!)

Are you a published author? Do you belong to a group? Do other published authors belong to the same group? Does your local news media pay any attention to their local authors or just the ones on the best seller list?

Here is what we did in Las Vegas to get some local recognition.

Our paper listed the top ten best sellers in fiction and non-fiction. They did special reports on books by the authors with name recognition such as Bill Clinton; John McCain; you get the idea. First we had a… Continue

My last Gotham Short Story writing class was this past Tuesday, 6/16 and in looking back I see I've made some friends, had an excellent teacher, learned a lot from everyone in the class and, the cherry on the cake, I've gotten some budding stories well underway.

Now that I won't be spurred on by meeting weekly with my class, I've found that I still have momentum and motivation to continue. I need to ensure that motivation is maintained for the weeks and months ahead. In part, I know… Continue

Summer Games

It's Summer and whereas in the US that means Baseball in the UK it signifies time for cricket. So here's a little piece of doggerel to celebrate both.

Village pitch deck chair and pillow

Sleepy pastoral summer scene

Tea and draught beer on the green

Lords and Oval Tests and Ashes

TV millions gripped by matches

Players international stars

Gossip columns fancy cars
