Rejection Never Felt So Satisfying

Like all authors seeking validation by gaining acceptance to an exclusive publishing house, I submitted "Unlikely Venture" in hopes of scoring a lucrative contract and promises of making the bestseller lists. Fortunately, like a Band-Aid being yanked from a wound, three out of the three I submitted to rejected it right away, for a variety of reasons that were kind of evasive and basically not very constructive. Part of this was my error, as I submitted to the wrong imprints with the…

Raising Redemption by R.A. Russell

When I was asked to review Raising Redemption, I jumped at the chance because it sounds like a great read and it had an excellent story line based on the excerpt from the back of the book.  I realize that life is full of twists and turns and that everything in life doesn’t always go according to the way we plan things.  As a parent often times, we have high…

A Storm in Memphis by Hero Jenkins

Technology has made reading books easier for me.  I love reading new books and I love being able to read books on my smartphone using an e-reader app.  I love being able to read while laying in bed or on the go.  I was approached by Hero Jenkins about a month ago and I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing “A Storm in Memphis.”  I was excited for this…

Walk to school and watched it play, and grow with clients and business partners. Now that it is at it's graduation day, when our business needs to be divided to conquer and grow larger and more successful, what makes it fail or maybe not fail but become stumped in growth? Is…

Bunk Beds Are A Great Way To Utilize Limited Bedroom Space

Is your family growing?  Do you have a limited amount of space or bedrooms in your house?  Bunk beds are a great way to utilize bedroom space and allow your children to sleep in their own space.  When my children were younger, they had to share a bedroom due to a limited amount bedrooms in the house that I was living in and at the time we weren’t in a position to move into a new home.  Bunk beds allowed me to maximize the space that we had so that each of my children were able to sleep…

SEE What These Foods Can Do For You!

When I was growing up, most people I knew must have had pretty good vision.  I say that because contact lenses weren’t the norm like they are today.  If a person couldn’t see well, that person wore glasses.  And most of the people I knew didn’t.

Sure, my grandparents wore glasses, as did the lady at the front desk of our library, and probably a couple of…

A Women or A Mom

I have tried to spend my day updating my blog while catering to 3 very bossy, very cute, very active little people.  I realized today that the one page on my blog that could very well be neglected is my ‘A Women’ page.  It seems that all the folklore about how a mom with little kids loses herself and perhaps some of her womanhood is actually true.  I managed to shower today, but couldn’t get time to brush my hair, so its up in its standard…
