Choosing to self-publish my book was a no-brainer. Why? Because I'm incredibly impatient. That's not to say I wanted my work out there as soon as I was done with it. Of course I want it to be the best it can be, but that is why I got people who I knew would be … Continue reading Why I Self-Published My Book

No one likes waiting, especially in this fast-paced society we live in. That's why we have overnight shipping and Amazon Prime - we want our things right away. We want our news right away, so instead of waiting for the 5pm news, we go online. But sometimes, we do have to wait. And while patience … Continue reading Patience is a Virtue, But I Still Hate Waiting

I've seen a few book bloggers and bookstagrammers do posts listing some bookish facts about themselves. We al have our own quirks as readers, as well as what we like and dislike.
