Whoever said, “go with what you feel,” probably didn’t have this in mind!
Heart pounds. Pupils dilate. Muscles tense up. That moment is here. Dayton WordCamp 2016 kicks off tomorrow and this year, I am one of the speakers! I’m so honored! I took a chance when I applied to be a speaker. I love getting out of my comfort zone and speaking in front of a crowd... Continue Reading →

Having a ready to go press release kit is something every Indie author should have. It’s also a good idea to have it on a static page on your website or/and blog.

Electronic Engineering (because I wanted to produce music); to Industrial Engineering (because it was the “logical” choice for a writer and wannabe-actress who didn’t believe in her own abilities); to Geography (because I still didn’t believe in myself, but I was good at geography, whatever that means); to International...
