“Sorry about Olive, Buck,” Jemma said, cradling her cup of coffee in her hand. Buck just shook her head. The plan had been to travel to the next city on the tour, but after Olive had left them hanging high and dry, Buck had to call the band’s agent, Ralph.

Don't Tell Me Twice: Chapter One
Buck Miller looked into the cheering crowd and remembered how much work it had taken her to get there. Buck had spent years writing her own songs and performing on the streets before a record label had picked her up, and when they finally did, she had seen all her dreams come true. Buck finally had gotten to move out of the cheap flat that she shared with her five roommates and into a two-bedroom house in the suburbs. Her bicycle was replaced with a Harley, and the loving embrace of her girlfriend, Olive, replaced her days on her own.

After writing your first book and publishing it, you may begin to wonder, “Where are my sales?” Well, if this is true, then there may be a reason you aren’t seeing the results that you want. Though distributors and retailers will assist you by getting your book to consumers, they won’t necessarily advertise your work for free. Therefore, it is important to get connected to your audience.
Fill Your Belly and Your Wallet
Let’s face it, grocery shopping is a necessity. We all have to do it, and sometimes, the money that we pay towards our other necessities doesn’t leave too much room to get all of the things that we may need. However, I have found that time and money can cooperate with each other if they are utilized in certain ways.

Grief and Mourning
Recently, I lost someone very close to me, and I’m not the best person when it comes to dealing with death. This has always been a subject that has made me uncomfortable.
