I haven’t ventured into the land of traditional publishing, yet, but as a self-publishing author, this… Read More The Road To Publication- Part 3
It’s that time of year, the very time I’ve been waiting for! I know you can’t erase the past, and to be honest, I don’t want too. But, I do enjoy moving forward.

It was one week after I had my first child, a daughter. I was still healing from the delivery and hadn’t heard from my estranged birth mother for over 24 hours.
