I am just in awe of self-published authors. They have such tenacity and passion. Writers are realizing that it's not that hard to publish a book yourself and with all the possibilities out there to get your book published without the help of a book publisher, they are saying it's now or never. I have an author here today to talk about his self-publishing journey. His name is Morrie Richfield and his book is called Mr. Breeze. I reviewed this book a few weeks ago. It is definitely an eye-opener.
Thank you for this interview, Morrie. You self-published your latest book, Mr. Breeze.... (more)
What’s One Reason Why Pronatalism Remains So Pervasive? Babies are Big Business
By Laura Carroll
Pronatalism is a set of beliefs about parenthood that has driven society for generations. The beliefs encourage reproduction and exalt the role of parenthood.

This early necessity to read flowered to a passion; hence, a writer was born.The award winning author resides in Maryland with her wonderful husband and son. Still an avid reader,... (more)
You’re mad as hell. What are you doing about it?

Wouldn’t it be super great if we could recognize what makes us angry and stop ourselves before we become an ogre with flaring nostrils and smoke coming out of our ears?
I interviewed Kevin to find out more about his new book and how it can help all of us lose the anger streak and gain the happy streak in its place.
Thank you for... (more)
