  1. I forgot to mention: Only good for ONE DAY from what I've been able to tell.
  2. Authors Publish Magazine email - I get them every day. https://www.authorspublish.com/12-small-presses-with-specialized-focus/
  3. Oh wow. This looks interesting. I hope you find who can help you out best.
  4. #1: You are the first to see these (unless I went and forgot I shared it already in a Facebook group).


    #2: I'd like to know if it's too plain? Should I add something? If so, what?


    #3: I might be willing to give you this if you contact me about it.


    I apologize for the sizes. I don't know how to make photos be smaller.

      Here's one I just now made. What do you think?

      These are gorgeous. I would love for you to create one for me. The book I’m writing has a working title of “unpacking your boxes”. Lol sound familiar.  I heard Gods whisper this morning. It is time for me to do what this brilliant Physician asked me to do two years ago. Take his medical heavy terminology and translate into our common tongue. This is so exciting. So it begins with one of my poems back story. Then presents the poem. What follows is a devotional illustrating the knowledge and wisdom from the word and the weekly lesson ends with giving the reader a chance to use the right side of their brains and unload hoarded emotional pain and resentments. Lastly, the online book will have a musical collection for the student to just relax in the arms of Jesus and breeth.  What. Do you think?

  5. Makes complete sense. And that's what I've been trying to do. I write by hand first and then as I'm typing it on the computer I can do some editing.
  6. I know. I keep trying to overcome my perfectionism.
  7. I just thought of another possible title, but I'm not loving how long it is. It's Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder and while I like the idea building in my head right now, it just seems too long. Do any of you have suggestions for one with fewer words?

      "Fonder Grows the Heart." "Absence Makes it Fonder."

    I love watching inspirational clips on YouTube. Particularly those of random acts of kindness or soldiers coming home (usually as a surprise to family and friends). They pack such a wallop of emotion, making it easier for me to write about that emotion truthfully.

      OK. There is something about the surprises that I absolutely hate. it's the *heart attack factor* - the possibility for the older generation (at least) to suffer a heart attack from the fright/scare/surprise.

      I think my #1 favorites are the ones with dogs.

  9. Several people have told me that my stories/characters are believable and relatable. That I write from the heart and it's encouraging that I'm willing to be as open about some things as I am.


    If anyone wants to read some of my older writing I should be able to message it to you. Perhaps you can tell me if those people are right or were just patronizing me. 😮 😕

  10. HA!

    I decided to start following you and just when I clicked the button I got the notification that you did the same thing!

    1. MaryKaithe


      Great minds think in the same circles...


  11. I suppose I could do it with coffee cups instead.
  12. Wow. Thank you for that, @MaryKaithe! So encouraging! I may end up "borrowing you" for interview-type questioning.
  13. If I start posting very short stories here - or on my blog if that's a better place - will you read them?

    1. KR LaLonde

      KR LaLonde

      We shall certainly see!!

      I'm going to put them on my blog for now. I'll give you the link right now if you want it.

    2. MaryKaithe


      yes please do...I have a doctors appointment in about an hour, so I'll be delighted to read some when I get back.  😌

      There are only a few things posted. But I'm hopeful of adding more very soon.

    4. Show next comments  12 more
  14. And ... to be honest ... I don't think I'll revise my WIP. I'm a perfectionist, see, and try really hard to get it right the first time. 😮 😕
  15. Is it free?! I didn't realize that. I sometimes try new writing methods/programs because I feel like I'm "stuck in a rut" if I write with one for too long. Right now, though, I'm very happy/content with what I have.
  16. I have several story ideas that I've written very brief summaries for. Like, 1 or 2 sentences, mostly. I doubt I can ever write all of them, but maybe a few. I came up with the titles first.


    Guide me Home

    Anchor me

    Larger than Life

    In/Capable God

    The Good Fight

    Lead the way

    Make a way

    A Simple Faith

    An Impossible Task

    Blessed Master

    Enough for me

    Mark my Words (possible cover made)

    Killing to Save (maybe about abortion :(; or "mercy killings")

    Her Secret to Tell (I think I made a cover for this one, too)

    Broken Promises

    A Light in the Darkness (about the Word of God in the world)


    and many more...

    IF you would like to "have" a story "of mine" please let me know.

  17. I don't even remember how much yWriter costs. I'm quite happy with Scrivener.
  18. I've considered using yWriter, but never have.
  19. This is the summary - should there be more? - for the first story in this anthology. Teen-aged son of farmer gets up early and complains about all the work he must do. Father wants him to behave but he "makes a fuss" anyway. But when he ends up in a new place - college? - he learns that FOOD isn't FREE.
  20. I just read a story--with pictures--that someone here-- @Spaulding, I believe --had written. It's really cute. I think she said she collects teddy bears.
  21. Aww. That's really cute! I would try something like this, but I don't have enough stuffed animals for it and I have few interests... but maybe... 😮
  22. @Erin Cook, I messaged you. I don't know how many book covers I actually have saved to my laptop's memory or in my expansion drives. I should seriously go through them all and get more organized. If you'd like to see more I can share them with you, as well. I tried watermarking them to put on my website but I never could narrow down my options. So I usually leave the image site's watermark there (like Deposit photos.
