Show Up for Life, and for Writing, Too!

 Are you showing up for your life in every situation? Is there ever a time that you aren’t “high” on life? If so, maybe it’s because a part of you has consciously, or unconsciously, checked out from whatever circumstance you find yourself in. Of course, writers especially need to think about this, because your writing will reflect your general state of heart and mind at any given moment. If you are loving the process of writing and attuned to each word, the quality of the piece will be vastly…See More

A post from my blog: http://joy4bodyandsoul.blogspot.com/

I’m not sure if it’s a good idea to share what I’m about to write. It’s certainly not what I intended to write. I have all of these ideas for this blog and the list keeps growing. Yet here I am, and in this moment one grave issue is dominating my mind.…

The Greatest Gift

Posted on December 21, 2011 at 7:30pm 0 Comments

So, have you swapped out the holiday blues for the holiday green, red, and golds after that last blog? In the spirt now? Thinking the best about every situation? It’s hard, eh? But oh so worth it!

I want to write something that I hope will make your holidays more joyous. I want to give you something that you can pass on to your children or grandchildren, and make their lives so much the better for it.

It's the gift of acceptance.

I used to be very quick to judge other…

Holiday Blues, Anyone?

Posted on December 16, 2011 at 12:41pm 2 Comments

Every year during the holiday season, I watched as my dad seemed to get seriously depressed. I find if I’m not careful, the same thing can happen to me. Or at least I can fall into a state of general unhappiness.
 
I find myself taking an inventory of the past year, and telling myself that I'm not where I should be. Basically, I do a lot of self-pummeling. I complain about the bad decisions I’ve made. I think about how life would be better if I would only have chosen…

Holly Marie,

Thanks for taking the time to vote on book covers for Murder in the Rockies. I appreciated your comments.  The publisher, Koehler Books Publishing, provided the illustrator(s), names unknown. I got to pick two versions, and I also made suggestions. Any of the three versions  would have been ok with me. The book comes out in digital form in October and paperback in November. If you get a chance, I hope you read it and enjoy the story. The work you are doing sounds interesting and worthwhile. Your firm should not be taken for "granted." Gary (aka G. Eldon Smith)

Hey there. We have been thinking about you. Let me know how things are going. I took a digital marketing mini MBA at Rutgers so I have learned a lot and have made a lot of good connections. This should be great for you all. I have also taken over a self-pub site you might want to check out. It is also a community but may have options there for some smaller ebooks for you to build your list. Deb www.offthebookshelf.com
