This Author’s Feet Were Made for Walking and Talking!

Have you ever thought about where you have been? And how you got there? And what your mode of travel was?

Well, this was a fun exercise: I loved the email I got about finding my rap name … all you do is put “Lil’” in front of the first thing you ate in the morning.

Navigating the High Seas on the 4th Annual Publishing at Sea Cruise Was Smooth Sailing

I’m coming off the 4th Annual Publishing At Sea cruise. Today is a time to look back and reflect a bit. What were my takeaways?
