Good Morning!

Good morning on this quiet Sunday. I just came in from walking the dog and she met a new friend- a new dog on the block. She was so happy to meet him and he was happy to meet her. No judgement. No fear. Just joy.

Make it a great day!…

Good Evening!

Be that ray…be that ray of sunshine today.

Smile more. Say hello more. Say something positive about your day. You attract what you put out there so do you really want all that negative stuff coming back and hitting you right between the eyes? I know I don’t…

If you can be that beam of light then…

Writing Novel #2 is Not Easy

My first novel, Appetite, was published in May, and I’m on page 83 of my second novel. It’s growing slowly, mostly because I am busy marketing novel number one. Marketing requires a different kind of writing than fiction does, more didactic and less poetic. I find it hard to switch back and forth—to jump from magazine articles, social media posts, questions-and-answers for interviewers, etc., into my new characters’ inner lives. But I can do it. And I confess it’s not only the…

Good Morning!

Good morning on this lovely Saturday. I woke up to a cat fight. But you know, two minutes later everyone was friends again.

We should be more like them. We may have disagreements, but we don't have to make a choice of revenge or holding onto that anger. We can choose to let it go.

Make it a great…

Book Marketing: What Traditional Publishers Expect from Authors Beyond Writing the Book

Getting a book contract is exciting beyond belief. I finally got a hard copy of the book. I said to my sister  one morning as I stuffed a copy into envelopes to mail off to those who contributed:

“I’m doing ‘authorly stuff;’ it makes me feel even more like a real writer.”

In case you don’t know, I’ve self-published over 90 ebooks (fiction and non-fiction).…

Good Evening

You matter in this world. You are just as important as the next person.

So many times, we push the things we’d like to do aside and tell ourselves things like “Oh, that’s too good for me” or “Nah, I really can’t do that” and then we stand there and watch other people do it.

Are they better…

Welcome Daniele Lanzarotta, Author of Shattered Souls

I will never understand those vampires who feed off animals or bags of donated blood. Let’s face it… if you are a vampire like those Cullens, who drink from animals, you are bound to get hair in your mouth while eating. Who can enjoy a meal like that? And those bags…

Hi! My name is...

Marie! And it's so nice to meet you! I know we're both writers, but let me introduce myself.

Total Hip Replacement Surgery and Recovery

This surgical treatment requires the surgeon to remove the damaged hip joint components (femoral head and acetabulum) with artificial implant devices made from ceramic, plastic, metal or a combination of these. These artificial prosthetics in the hip joint not only help to relieve the pain but also to restore normal functioning in the hip joint.

It is most important to observe and follow all instruction given by the doctor/physician regarding the recovery and after-care for a…

What I've Been Up To

Apologies, fellow writers, for being away for so long! :) I'm starting my second graduate program in a few weeks, finishing up the details of the first one, and looking forward to the challenge and the fun of the health sciences. UCSF is my dream school - if we can have several dream schools :) - and so I am back to some intense studying and serious research work nowadays! :)

Of course, I'm still reading and writing a lot ... It is just that I will be reading about economics, politics…
