Working in healthcare during a global pandemic has a way of stripping you of any sort of carefree facade, not gonna lie. Additionally, I think it also confirms the need for us to be nice to one another and do what we can to help each other.
So with both those thoughts in mind, this blog post is going out to any of my fellow authors who happen to stumble across my blog, let’s get real with one another. Writing is hard!
Yes, the actual writing as in getting-words-on-paper is difficult, especially for those like me who are emotional writers and need to wait on the muse to speak before the prose will flow (my pathetic attempt at being pithy, please ignore).
But every step is not without its own stumbling blocks from editing to publishing. We all have that particular part of the journey that is especially daunting to us, but really they are all hills we each have to climb and hiking is hard work!
Of course we do it because we love it and we really love the privilege of sharing our words with others, but it’s also okay to admit that it can be tough to plow through some parts of the trek calling writing.
Because of all that, I wanted to share with you a little bit of help. Marketing is really hard. There are, sadly, a lot of predators out there who want to scam you out of your promotional dollars and will skip away down the creeper path with your money in their pocket and not deliver any services for your investment.
Fortunately I’ve had the privilege of meeting Jackie Shephard through one of my beloved writing friends Luna Joya. Jackie is an awesome human all around, but she also has been supportive and open to helping my personal writing journey. Why is this worth mentioning? Because Jackie offers services and support to all authors and you can peruse her comprehensive packages down below. Lighten your authorly load by contacting Jackie immediately and seeing how this fabulous lady can help you reach your publishing goals.

In this first book of the Sister Witches Urban Fantasy series, Clementine Brodeur must unknot her dead mother’s tangled legacy before the clock runs out…
I’m Clementine, youngest of three sisters, and my magic is making me lose sleep.
I see memories the dead leave behind.
Which becomes painful when those memories belong to my mother.
Alderose, Beryl, and I need clues to find someone our mother protected. But viewing Mom’s memories–caught in story threads only I can see–will force me to experience the moment she was attacked by the Fae.
I know I can find my way through this.
However, my sisters don’t like my history of “leap now, look later” escapades.
They’ve had my back for over twenty years. Why wouldn’t they have it now?
The reality is we have forty-eight hours to find someone our talented mother could not.
If we don’t succeed, someone’s going to die.
And the story threads refuse to reveal if the one who will die is one of us.Continue reading “Book Review! ONCE BLESSED, THRICE CURSED by: Coralie Moss”
