The Cassonade Fund
As I have said before, traditional publishing has changed, excluding the “talented nobodies”, AKA gifted/skilled/educated writers who are not already famous. I have been writing for over 30 years, trying unsuccessfully to get published through traditional means. The few times that I did get published (under pseudonyms that you’d better not ask about) I hadContinue reading “The Cassonade Fund”
We Are Not *Them*!
I’m doing it again. I am taking a post on my Facebook feed to my blog, mainly because I’m not willing to risk going back to FB Jail for what I am about to say. I’ve already gotten into it with one of the commenters who tried to take an opposing view of my comments.Continue reading “We Are Not *Them*!”
Yeah, I’m Going to Say Something, Too…
I may as well, since it seems to be the ONLY thing that people can talk about right now.

I Said It…And It Came To Pass!
It does not happen as often as I would like, but when it does, I acknowledge it. Sharon Osbourne is off The Talk, and it could not have happened to a more deserving person. “Let’s keep up the backlash. Backlash makes Sharon a liability, and liabilities get fired. “ Ms. Chantal, “Sharon vs. Sheryl: a RudeContinue reading “I Said It…And It Came To Pass!”
I thought that it would be easy, because no one ever told me the details involved. I thought that I could just upload my manuscript, design a cover, and keep it moving. Editing and proofreading was not the problem. I have an English degree. Cake. NO ONE told me that there was a step calledContinue reading “Self-Publishing.”
