Chelsea Mueller Chelsea Mueller's blog:

It’s not a secret to anyone who has met me or followed me on any social media channel that I love to give book recommendations. Sometimes it gets harder when someone is just starting to get into reading for pleasure or is wary about starting a new genre.

Pete Conrad Pete Conrad's blog:
A quick note about my style. I use a lot of em dashes. I also refuse (my editor's word) to capitalize the first letter in quotes if it isn't the first letter in a sentence.

Like this:

"I dunno," Pete said, "this is just my style. Suck it if you don't approve."

I do that because I like the way it lo... Read more of this blog post »

I decided to relax last night and watch a documentary about deep sea creatures. Yesterday was a busy day and, as I had the night to myself, the treat of a bit of tv would be well earned. Also, I could have the subtitles on and learn some new German words (Rätselhaft=enigamtic/baffling btw).

Let me guess. . . you're thinking just because I'm a published author, motivator, and founder of a non-profit organization that I must have it all together? My newly released book is called "Renewed Strength: Steps to Becoming A S.U.R.V.I.V.O.R", so I must be undefeatable. Welp! I've come to tell...
