I'll buy your book
Hello everyone! In honor of signing with a new publisher, I am making a call to you all; drop your link to your book and I will buy it and tell you what I think. What's the catch you ask? None. I want to support you. I want to see you succeed. Most of all, I don't want you to feel overlooked or unseen. That feeling can make even the happiest of people quit and never work on their dreams again. So let us get to some self-promotion. I'm going to put the links on this page as well for others who might be interested in buying your book as well.
Episode 6) the Perfect Podcast
*Special co-host today! Welcome back to “The Shrug”, still working on a catchphrase so if you have one, let me know! I will be focusing this episode on submissions to my Perfect Challenge. If you haven't entered, please see the link below and make an entry! I want to say thank you to everyone who has entered and I have enjoyed reading all of them!
Filthy haiku challenge
I have been itching to try my hand at haiku again, but I wanted to make it sexy. So I challenge you, make a filthy haiku. Unleash your inner sexy God or Goddess and be divine. We are amazing humans with so much power in our bodies. I owe this revival to the book “Fuck Like A Goddess”, a great book for awakening that fire within. I think sometimes as women we forget just how sexy and amazing we can be. We just get lost in the every day and the rational and forget to let ourselves loose. I will read quite a few of these haikus on the podcast for a later episode as well! That is if you are okay with that! I'm very excited to read what people bring to the table!

Episode 5) Interview with Naomi Gold
This is my second interview on "The Shrug". I have to say leading up to this interview, I was nervous. I have so much admiration for Naomi Gold, and I was not ready to find out that this person was so genuine and lovely. I was also not prepared to see such a beautiful smile and amazing eyebrows. I decided not to edit too much of the conversation, I loved the humanity of the conversation and that she is just like us. Therefore, this is mostly the raw audio of this conversation.
From Young Me
I wish I could recall the first thing I wrote. I'm unsure how it happened, but I was always a writer and a reader. Though I believe I started as the latter. While other kids watched television, I read. I finished classwork early, which I did for the sole purpose of reading more. I remember a few journal entries about a girl who liked a boy, a story much like others; I doodled my alternate names often.
The Perfect Challenge
I have a challenge for y'all. The reward is I will pick my favorite poems from this challenge to include in my course as inspiration for those who are learning how to write poetry: that means you will have more likes, comments, and views on that poetry (that of course, is if it's okay with you if I use your poetry as an example, totally fine if not.)
All that Jazz
I love this trend of talking about ourselves and being able to explore the people behind the stories. Kayleigh Fraser had this AMAZING idea, and we can keep it going! Here are ten things about me. Please feel free to comment with your commentary! Who else keeps thinking about the movie “10 Things I Hate About You” while writing this prompt???
Review: Love again
*spoilers ahead* Let me start by saying how happy I am that romcoms and romance movies exist. Is there a better genre? No. Without them, we wouldn’t have Meg Ryan or Ryan Gosling, and I’m just happy to be in a world where they exist; now on to this movie.
