Having a New Year’s Resolution is not Enough-

Who made a New Year’s resolution to get their book done in 2022? Now, February is upon us… is your resolution still front and center?

Because (yes, I always break English grammar rules!) 2022 is the year to get your book off of your heart and out of your head once and for all.

Writing, however, is a lonely, introverted, and often an isolated undertaking. It is great to have a team behind you.

With that being said, I give a heartfelt “Thank You” to my team that stands behind me so that I can support all of you and your book productions.

So, this is my big call out to you if you are ready to get your book off your heart in 2022!

This is a great New Year’s resolution, but what if you don’t feel that you have what it takes to write a successful book, nor enough content to fill an entire book?

Well… that is where support, accountability, encouragement, structure, and confidence are crucial.

Because (here I go again… testing grammar rules) A New Year’s resolution alone is not enough to see your book through to fruition!

Of the many contributing factors demanded in the writing of a book, confidence is #1.

Once you’ve cultivated your confidence in your story’s message your odds of completing your book skyrocket.

With your confidence in your message, there is nothing that will stop you from pushing through and getting your story’s message down. It is your confidence in your idea and inspiration that will see you through; not so much the goal (nor the New Year’s resolution) of writing a book.

Now, there are many tools that will help you, yes. Though, confidence in your message is tops!

How does an author grow their confidence in their message? Well, here are a few takeaways to help build your confidence in your story:

1. Start the conversation and write
2. Write
3. Gather feedback from your peers and family
4. Write
5. Get your message out into the world. Write.
6. Gather constructive criticism that is necessary for your message and your story to evolve
7. Sit your but down in a chair and write
8. And lastly… write!

If you’d like more tools and insight, I’d love to visit with you about your book project.

We work with all phases of book production from writing to publishing and even marketing.

The book publishing world is overwhelming and there are a lot of scams out there… we continue to evolve and uncover the best tools for authors while our authors keep their royalties their own.

Follow my thread here and find some nuggets to help you get your book launched in 2022!

Be safe, warm and healthy out there and Happy February!

Books and Literature-The Tapestry of Our Society

Where do books and literature play a part in creating the tapestries of society?

And how can we as authors and content creators use this to our advantage?

There is a power that books possess in the teaching, and in the learning across cultures and this same power carries on our wisdom and insights for future generations. 

We learn from, not only, the celebrations and comedy of the past, we also learn an abundance from the brutality showcased across literature. We garner this history and information that continues to shape societies today. 

It is fun to recognize through literature how far society has come and yet how little we have truly changed. 

The intention of this post is to ask how this applies to your writing? Whether you are working on an epic novel or a nonfiction manuscript to debut your products or services, you are creating a time capsule. 

The assets that contribute to the tapestries of society across books and novels alike include aspects of our cultures. Assets like food, wine, clothing yes. The two primary contributors that I encourage you to explore and study for your own narrative are:

  1. The dialogue and language that you include
  2. The beliefs and conflicts that are exemplified

How is your narrative maintaining these assets of your culture or the culture that you are writing of?

Remember that you are writing a time capsule!  Are you crafting this as a Legacy for your future generations?

BOOK ONE, MORNINGSTAR:The Mystery Of The Secret Letters

Silence is comforting to some. Comforts are dynamic and seldom relied upon when life is as volatile as the wind. Comforting as the silent breeze may be one moment, such quiet can bring fears and storms the next. Sound is a much better indicator of peace for a motherless child and what better way to fill the empty void of quiet than the melody
of a Celtic bagpipe.

The drone of a bagpipe, like no other sound, resonates within. It penetrates the
core of one’s being. The sound’s vibrations touch upon each fiber leaving the soul
humming and yearning for more.

Kirsti watched him sit alone upon the beach and stare at the water beating upon
the stony shore. She watched him each morning that he was home. What he was watching or looking for now became clear to her adolescent reasoning. His aloneness there upon the shore of The North Sea roared once he began to play his music across the expanse of time.
