Since leaving a major daily newspaper in 2009 (through a voluntary buyout), it's been a long,arduous journey to reinvent myself and navigate the choppy waters of this new landscape we call journalism. It's been a fun adventure at times, and it's also been a little scary. Uncertainty is not an easy...

  Suddenly, publishing seems like one big popularity contest. Who was it who said that everything I learned, I learned in high school? The business of the arts suggests it’s true. When I worked briefly as a music manager, there was one thing that really got me: in a business that was...

Screenwriter Diablo Cody worked her magic with "Young Adult” as she did with “Juno.”  While others (reviewers and moviegoers) seem to be pre-occupied with the themes of 1) people for whom high school was their glory days; 2) being a homewrecker; 3) you can’t go home again; I got wrapped up in...

I met someone last Saturday who was firing questions at me regarding survival food. She knew of my book, Acorns And Eat’em and was hoping to supplement her diet with them. Two problems with that. One, it’s a bad year for acorns in her neck of the woods; they are nowhere to be found. Two, acorns are...

Dear fellow writers, In the vein of "never give up," Girlfriendbooks.com just reviewed my novel, FAT CHICK. http://ning.it/pc6uLH. The book came out in November 2009. Its debut was not heralded in book review sections, nor did I get guest spots on morning shows. My name is not Candace or...

Well it's been over a year since my last blog post, and I am really ashamed.  I wonder how many people still view my page, and I amgoing to try to revitalize interest. After all, what kind of 'shameless self promoter' would I be if I didn't?  I am now a year older, tho none the wiser. I...

It never gets easier this whole networking, socializing to sell books thing. I wonder how authors did it a hundred years ago, two hundred years ago? Oh, right, people bouught books, read the books, talked about the books and more people bought the books. Of course, there weren't millions of people...

Technology has its uses, but there are times the old fashioned way is easier -- and better. I've been preparing a package for mailing that needs to be out by June 15. Unfortunately, my laptop did not recognize my printer and every time I deleted a job it hung the computer up for about 24-48 hours...
