I've wanted to be a published author since I was a kid. My dream came true when I had a short story published in the literary journal of the junior college I attended. My next success came a few years later when I had a short story published in the literary journal of the university I attended. Both journals were in print, but the overall readership and distribution...I'd be surprised if more than 500 people read either story.
That was more than 20 years ago when ebooks were in their infancy along with audiobooks and a new creature called an "e-zine."
Electronic magazines were starting to pop up, trying to collect the musings of writers in thematic volumes before the blog boom. But did these pioneering e-zines cultivate or crash the dreams of the submitting authors?…Continue
Last week I had a few bad days. A conflict at work was niggling at me. Things weren’t going well with an editor. Work on my latest book was dragging. The stress turned into a giant migraine, making me cancel my classes for a day—something I detest doing.

After the official launch of my first book, I was riding high on the positive waves of the newly published. There had been an amazingly well-attended party, the line graph on Author Central began shooting upward and there were great reviews -- three of ’em! I did not want to read about rejection in any form whatsoever. No sir. Not this girl. No way.
And then I gave in, because we writers are nothing if not our own saboteurs. I got a momentary reprieve: the link in the email led me to a collection of other articles about dealing with rejection. Still reeling from acceptance, I was hesitant to stick my toes…Continue

Today's post is about photographer Roger Ballen.
I am so far from the impression that my husband has of me right now. I am so far down the rabbit hole that the entrance is not visible anymore. I haven’t dealt with so many things in my life. I haven’t really admitted to myself the truth for a good long time, if ever.
But what is the truth? What is it that holds me in my patterns?
I've had the pleasure of attending many literary events here in Berlin over the past couple of months, while meeting many wonderful people involved in the city's English-language literary community. For readers who love to read translations from other countries, here are two noteworthy publishers you should know about -- one a literary journal and one a press specializing in short-form translations.…
