Em’s Extras: Self Publishing Series Part II

The first step in the self-publishing journey is, of course, finishing your book!  For that to happen, you don’t necessarily need to quit your job-like I did-but you definitely need time. In my perspective, one of the first questions that you need to answer is, “how can I create time to write?”  Creating time requiresContinue reading “Em’s Extras: Self Publishing Series Part II”

Excerpt from Fearless

Fearless is a compilation of inspirational and personal answers to the question: “What would I do if I weren’t afraid?” The answers are written in the form of essays.

Em’s Extras: Self Publishing Series Part I

I started flirting with the idea of self-publishing late last year. It was around the time when I started thinking about my 2020 goals. I am a dreamer, so of course, I dreamt for a long time about sending my finished manuscript to a publishing house.

My Quarantine Gift

In one of my previous blog posts (Reset), I shared that one of my coping mechanisms for the quarantine has been learning.

Em’s Extras: Extra-Gratitude Edition

I always, always read a book’s Acknowledgments. I don’t remember exactly when I started to pay attention to them, but it has been a long time. I really enjoy reading the kind and marvelous phrases an author uses to thank or praise their support system, their loved ones, their life cheerleaders. Acknowledgments fascinate me. TheyContinue reading “Em’s Extras: Extra-Gratitude Edition”

Em’s Extras: Coronavirus Edition

Thoughts from an Eternal (and very anxious) Optimist. Yesterday I did one of my infamous self-interventions (many of my friends know about this and find it funny, but I promise you they are real). Basically, a self-intervention is when I called myself to a meeting to have a talk out loud. These meetings usually takeContinue reading “Em’s Extras: Coronavirus Edition”
