Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah and all the ones I am missing. May the holidays be a time of peace and joy. If you are traveling safe journey whatever method that is being used. If you are alone for whatever reason may the season be kind to you.

Wishing all of you a Happy New Year, may it be better than 2017.

See you in 2018.


Finding pictures for your blog

IMG_0079Where do you find pictures for your blog posts or other social media platforms? There are sites all over that offer photos for free and some for a price. You just have to search online.

One has to be careful of the ones that come with licenses so that you don’t infringe on the person who took that picture. Yes we are small time but what if they decided to sue you for not paying or asking permission for its use?

I am a photographer as well and am constantly taking pictures. That is my resolution so I can rest assure that all is okay as I post away. If you are a writer take pictures of your book, desk, notebook to scenery. Be creative. This is another way to shine your books, your craft and your brand.

There may be times where nothing will fit the content of what you are writing about. Free sites are available to you if you are willing to spend a bit of time looking.

“Everyday Musings”: My anthology



One of my publishers just sent me a proof for the book that will be released on Sept. 30th. “Everyday Musings” is an anthology of short stories and poetry. It looks fantastic. The company did an amazing job. This will be my fourth book on my own. #Author #EverydayMusings #Amazed I know the picture is not doing the cover justice but was so excited I shook as I took the shot.
