I am always on the lookout for new and updated reading material! 

If you think something should be added that is relevant to getting published and/or creative writing, either leave a comment or drop me an email!



  1. I’ll right away seize your rss as I can’t find your email subscription link or newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Please let me understand so that I may just subscribe. Thanks.

    1. Hi,

      I have not yet installed feedburner to my blog…I’m fairly new and will try getting it installed this weekend. When I have everything in place I’ll let you know. At the very, very bottom of the blog (I don’t know why WordPress put it so far down) there is an email subscription. You can try that if you want. As soon as feedburner is in place I’ll send you another email. Thanks for commenting and reminding me I have to get on my install of that rss feed!

    2. Hi again 🙂

      I just wanted you to know that I do not have to add feedburner for the RSS. If you are at the home page of my blog, look to the right, mid-page. You should see the following:


      Site Admin
      Log out
      Entries RSS
      Comments RSS

      You can subscribe to the Entries – Comments – or both. I’m glad I went in search of it, and I hope this helps. If not just let me know.
