Your call is important to us, Please continue to hold :)

Hey there everyone,

I'm back! So, what have I been doing for the last year or so? Attending to life. I was very excited to start on my own version of the American Dream last year, but family health and personal issues had to be addressed. And when I was blessed to catch my breath from all of that, well, I just lost my mojo, and have only just recently found it.

A publishing buddy of mine emailed me with a proposal. She started her own Press, Duffie Books and was swamped with all aspects of her small business. She invited me to come on board as their Editor and Marketing Manager. And I am just SO glad that I accepted, even though I had never done either before! Well, at least not professionally.

I have learned so much about the small publishing house business in this last month working with Theresa. And I am bound to learn more, I'm sure. I also realized that trying to simultaneously start two businesses was virtually impossible for me. I would say, if you are low on funds, don’t try to stretch those dollars to thin. I have decided to start my Publishing Company and focus all of my energy and available money on that.

As for Theresa, she knows that I have my own niche, hers is traveling the world for single women, and so we came to an agreement. I plan to go live with my website in 2009, probably Spring. I am also looking at how to connect my blog to my site, but being technologically disadvantaged, it's taking a while :)

Baby Steps

I am also looking at new formats and ideas for my blog. I'll be posting again soon.

So please be patient and try your call again later :)

Here Ye Here Ye!

I have changed my business focus which actually suits my blogs name to a tee. I will be building a business around myself, literally. I am shifting away from trying to start my ebook publishing business with other peoples work and instead I will be writing and publishing my own ebooks on sites like Amazon and Barnes and Nobles etc. While I've been published on Yahoo's Associated Content, I am a newbie through and through when it comes to the new frontier of ebooks. I am so scared I wanna pee my pants, but I am going for it anyway!
