While colorful fireworks burst through the dark skies, and red, white and blue flags flap in the wind, a sense of pride swells up in me. Not an arrogant pride, but one of gratitude and appreciation. Let me tell you why.
As I sit at my computer tapping on my keyboard, comfortable in my home’s air-conditioning and other luxuries, my mind goes back to my native country of Bolivia. I go back to my birthplace, where daily protests block streets and put an abrupt halt to business. Homes…Continue

Are you a maybe baby?
Last week I was stuck, really stuck. In writing a story, I ran into a wall of nothing. My creative flair had reached a dead end. I tried to add spice to a scene I was crafting, but …had nothing but blank thoughts!
So, I pushed myself away from my desk and hopped in the shower to get ready for my weekly prayer meeting at church.
A friend picked me up, and On the way, I thought, "Maybe this time away from writing, maybe God will give me the wisdom and…Continue

Okay, sorry I have been away. Don’t think I am not paying attention to this! We attended the conference I spoke of, and the networking was outstanding. We connected to organizations, individuals, and legislators on
our signature Free and Fair Elections Amendment proposal, which is important to
help improve our public perception (as well as to the country as a whole, in my
view, but that’s a different blog; this one is on marketing). From a…

I want to thank each of you for being here. I know there is so much to learn about marketing books and feel I have finally found the right place. I market the fictionaly works of Loren Douglas, a new writer in today's arena.
To introduce myself on the internet, I submit things to various article directories. I have fun with it and enjoy googling myself to see where all they go. My articles have been all over the map, from cooking sites to lawyers sites. I certainly…Continue

I commented this -- but felt it should be repeated here--- (and I fixed my typos!)
Hello all -- people are funny. So many people have commented and emailed and think that this is a huge step for an introvert to engage in social networking. This is easy! I sit alone in my office and chat with strangers. Online social and business networking is the introvert's dream! That said there is a difference between being shy and being introverted and while I will always be introverted (my…Continue

Two years ago I wrote a poem called "GI JOES AND ARMY MEN" that described my feelings as a new military mother. I felt mixed emotions when putting my son on the plane for Fort Jackson, South Carolina. I felt proud of his decision/calling to serve his country! I also felt fear...
(You can find this poem posted on my website's Under God page at www.allgloryishis.com.)
I knew I could either fall apart and cry all the way through the next…Continue

Yesterday contained one of those had to be there moments. Of course, as a writer, I’ll try to describe it.
We’d just gotten home from a friend’s house, and the kids were outside while I put on casual clothes. Confession – I got distracted by email – and next thing I know my daughter is standing in front of me with a
huge grin on her face, hands clasped tightly in front of her.

Not all books come out whole, all at once. In fact, most books ease out little by little. They have strange and wondrous beginnings. Some come from speeches, some come from articles or short stories. Your book may evolve from a teleclass or coaching experience with a client.
The saying goes if you write a page a day, at the end of a year you'll have a book--a big book at that! But then, why think so big?
Twenty-five years ago, I gave Speed reading and Memory seminars. I…Continue

Both my book and my first blog, "Never too Late!" won first place awards in their respective categories in the Illinois Woman's Press Association's Mate E. Palmer Communications Contest for 2007. Both were then sent on to the parent National Womens Press Foundation's contest, and to my surprise, I just learned that both were winners at the national level.
"Never too Late!" was a first place winner in the "Web Writing, Personal" category, and my book, Reinventing Myself:…Continue
