In my weekly chat with my author friends Zoe Burton and Leenie Brown, we discussed our top ten best sellers for 2018.

It's really not so unattainable for the average full-time writer. It averages out to 1667 words a day, which I can do in about an hour.

My husband's out of town for a week. The first of many such trips. It's a lot easier with my mom living with us than it used to be but still, I'm going to need this reminder this week. I can do anything. And so can you! What would you do if you could do … Continue reading Positivity Monday- You’re Worth It!
