Adventures In Publishing – Part 2

I've come to realize that until you have done something for the first time, it is never as simple as you think it will be. Self-publishing has become more complicated than I thought possible. Why?

Adventures In Publishing – Part 1

In my last blog post, I completed the line editing of my book manuscript and hired a professional proofreader to do the proofreading editing. After two marathon zoom calls, we finished the process, and I am extremely thankful for her input. I cannot stress strongly enough, how necessary it is to get another editor to … Continue reading Adventures In Publishing – Part 1

What am I talking about? Remember back to when you were a child… did time seem to pass in slow … Continue reading My Adventures In Editing – Part 4

Canada is 155 years old, and while that is a relatively young country compared to those in europe, it is no less a milestone. Milestones are meant to marked and remembered, so it seemed to be the perfect day to announce the … Continue reading Milestones Must Be Marked!

Caterpillars Can’t See The Butterfly Within

Photo by Diana Schröder-Bode on Unsplash Do caterpillars have dreams or are they so consumed with the need to feed that they ignore what's buried deep within? Sometimes my mind ponders the strangest things. I find, in the midst of the pondering, God has hidden a treasure; a lesson or truth He wants me to find. I need … Continue reading Caterpillars Can’t See The Butterfly Within

Finding My Balance

Photo by Aron Visuals on Unsplash This blog post is not about my lack of physical balance. To clarify, I am addressing the balance between work, family, and self-care. It's something we all struggle with at times. It's been a six month struggle for me — since November 2021, I've had new opportunities and responsibilities open up which … Continue reading Finding My Balance
