I just received my first review for, HIllbilly Chess, My Life as a Pawn (Coming in 2021) and I am so very excited. I thought I'd share it with y'all.

I couldn't put Hillbilly Chess down. I loved it! As a survivor of child abuse, I realize the struggle and family conflict it takes to end the cycle of abuse. My heart broke for what the author endured. Yet, she clawed her way out of the abuse and rose to fulfill her own dreams. It emphasizes that your circumstances as a child do not determine your adult path.

Jan Walters, Author of the Ghost and A Cop series.

Lots of sweat and tears paid off. I'm feeling pretty sassy happy today! Thank you TMW!

3.) Never apologize for being a powerful f**king woman. Author Unknown

Ron Howard

I love the movies Ron directs. I think he's a great director and actor. We could learn a lot from him about writing and building our characters.

Oscar-winning director Ron Howard deconstructs his process for storytelling, working with actors, and blocking scenes.

It's been a long wait, but the extended epilogue to The Lost Colony is finally here!

The story has been done for some time, but life (and events) intruded--delaying the edits and formatting. I'm sorry.

As promised, it's free (you can read it online and download it to your device). Please set aside some time; it's about 8,000 words (37 pages in print). I hope you enjoy it. And I hope that wherever you are, you're safe and healthy.

Word Journey Publishing

After many years of going to Writers Conferences, meeting a ton of publishers, agents, writers & authors, vanity presses and POD's and, getting nowhere other than, back home with a bunch of business cards and dreams, I knew it was time to begin my research and do something for myself.

So, here I am, Word Journey Publishing. I love what I do, and, I love helping other Indie Authors. I feel the freedom within my soul that I have the best of both worlds. I get to write my books and publish them as well.

One crucial thing though, I will always send my writings out to an editor who is a professional, not someone who studied English but someone who does editing for a living and come with references. Editing is a must!

I love the excitement of watching others bring their dreams into a reality and fruition, which is why I love helping my fellow Indie Author’s. I know what that felt like, and each time is like delivering a new baby because we are. Oh, the joy!

I think that the world of publishing is changing. The Big Publishing Houses must be feeling this crunch (just my thought), with Amazon as well as many POD's out there. I see things changing with the tides as the wind blows and yes, that fast. I believe that the Big Guys will be around for many years; nonetheless, I see changes that have already happened and some coming.

Moreover, I will never give up on my quest for a BIG House to represent one of my babies. I will never give up on my Agent (I've already picked him out, and he's on my Vision Board). I know without a doubt an Author will go far with an Agent showing them and leading the way as they do, that is just a fact-Jack!

Word Journey Publishing (WJP) can help with many different aspects of your writing and publishing journey. We will offer complete publishing packages for the the author who wants to, write the books and let someone else handle all the groundwork.

Check us out at www.WordJourneyPublishing.com

So in the meantime, Write on Indie Groovies!

Peace Out~
