Overcoming The Low Moments

by Suzanne D. Williams There are days when I have to force myself to smile. Any author knows what I mean – that plastic, I-don’t-want-to-hear-this expression that hides what you’re actually thinking.

Accepting Rejection (or Constructive Criticism)

by Ruth O’Neil I recently had a request to review a book. This book was already published in ebook form. Now I was not being paid to write this review and I was receiving no other compensation, which was fine. This was a new, young writer and I wanted to encourage him. Keep […]
