The Universe decided to up the stakes.

Thriving not Surviving

There is a reason that my paranormal women’s fiction characters resonate with readers. They are usually at a point in their life where they are surviving and don’t want to do the hard work of thriving. I throw a few obstacles in their way or put them in precarious positions, but just like in real[…]

How’s the Writing Going? The Question all Authors/writers dread

How’s the Writing Going? The Question all Authors/writers dread by T.J. Deschamps How’s the writing going? An easy question to ask but a difficult question to answer.

How Do You Market on Social Media When Three Major Platforms are Down?

Today, Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram are all down. It’s also not common knowledge (though it’s widely available) that all three apps are owned by one company. Twitter is speculating why.
