Welcome to my nitty-gritty writer’s nook. This site came to be when three roads collided in my mind and heart.
First, I am a researcher. It is my favorite part of the brainstorming process when I am writing. Second, I am a comparatively new writer who has witnessed a pattern in the questions other new writers ask on community sites across social media. Third, I want to sell books. To sell, you must market. To market you must (A) have a social presence and (B) know how to talk the talk.
My blog allows me a space to bring together what I hear and research, to share that information with others, and to continue to learn. My motto: research, compile, present, and repeat. Jump in. The water’s fine.
