Last Thursday British fans of How I Met Your Mother finally learned how the long running rom com ends. In case you're unfamiliar with the show, it's the story of how Ted Mosby meets the love of his life, told to his teenaged kids in the year 2030. The hook is, Ted is the sort of guy whose memory...

Randy Eberle Randy Eberle's blog:
It seems, these days, that no matter where I turn, one of the cornerstones of success in the world of independent publishing for any author...regardless of genre...is a personal blog.

Many times, I've wracked my brain asking myself: "What do I have to talk about, and why would anyone give a shit?"... Read more of this blog post »

Writers often say, in their soppier moments, that each book is like a child. Well, they’re certainly laboured over! And as with a child, it’s a proud day when you send your book out into the world for the first time. It’s also a moment of trepidation, when you realise the book must now stand up f...

The way in which you display the text can make a significant difference to useability. As an example,... Read more of this blog post »

There is no one that can stop you from loving, as long as you know you love yourself.

Hello, I’m Tenae Hunt!

YOUR VOICE

Sing for me;

stroke the air
with harmony;
kiss the night
with song
and calm my
ever-present fears.
