The Publishing Notebook

Bullet Journal Minimalism: The Publishing Notebook

It has probably become clear that I love journals and the bullet journaling system works really well for me.  Since I am far more focused on function over design, I realized it made sense for me to have different journals.  I didn’t start keeping journals when I discovered bullet journaling, but it changed the wayRead more

Persuasion Read-a-Long: Week 3 Discussion

Here we are in week 3 of our Persuasion Read-a-long.  This week we get a short emotional break from the tension between Anne and Captain Wentworth.

Not-A-Book Tour: Atlanta Recap

I am not on a book tour… yet Since I am technically not on a book tour, I didn’t make a book tour stop in Atlanta while I was there.  Keep in mind, I had about 9 hours of tourism time because I was there for a conference.  I didn’t get to visit as manyRead more

While Emma may treat her father like a child,Read more

I know, I was suppose to do this post over a week ago.  I was busy being sick and everything got thrown off.  My 30 days of editing Wikipedia are over.  It was far more difficult this year to do just 30 days than it was last year to do 100.  I think it wasRead more

Persuasion Read-a-Long: Week 1 Discussion

Hi!!!  Here we are at our first discussion for the Persuasion Read-a-Long!  I am very excited to do this because Persuasion is my favorite of Austen’s novels.  This week the discussion focuses on chapters 1-6. What is going on?  In relation to our love story, very little.  In relation to Sir Walter’s ego, plenty. SomethingRead more

Getting Ready For Modern Persuasion

Managing Your Disappointment and Pivoting

It’s been a long two weeks for me.  With the travel and getting sick, it would have been long enough.  On top of it, I have had to pivot in regards to Modern Persuasion’s publication.   Obviously, we were all expecting the cover reveal to be a few days ago, but with the publishing dateRead more
