Is your first book launch coming up? Do you have a signing scheduled? Are you ready to go on tour?
If you are planning to do a physical book tour, you’re likely racked with nerves and excitement. Going store to store isn’t for everyone, but if you’re planning to get some face time in with your audience, don’t fall victim to these unfortunate (and common) mishaps.
You’re Not on the Schedule
Whether you’re planning your events yourself or working with your publisher, sometimes mistakes are made. Whether it be the bookstores fault or a miscommunication from your team, authors have shown up to events only to find no one expected their arrival.

But I ran across someone doing NaNoEdMo--National Novel Editing Month--which seemed more helpful.

This part of The Stowaway has been a…
The blogosphere is the home for many fashion blogs. There are many niches to focus on, from kids’ apparel to fashion articles dedicated to women and men, touching every single piece of wardrobe anyone could think of.
There are some heavy names in the industry and the competition is fierce. Wondering how these bloggers manage to stay on top and…

What are you telling yourself? Are you telling yourself things that make you happy? Do you encourage yourself? Do you see the glass as half-full? Do you treat yourself like your own best friend? If not, why not?
