Chapter Nine is still in progress. I'm not making excuses, I just haven't been working on it. I did some writing today on it, but it's a tough chapter to tackle. It's tough, but I'll be better at sticking with it daily so the story gets finished. Sometimes you hit a point in a story ...

Let It Snow…

What is Chicago but a wonderful place filled with humid summers, gigantic skyscrapers, and bitterly cold winters? After having a little break from the crappy weather, the weather gods have seen fit to blanket the Second City with powder once again.

Writing a story can be similar to writing a term paper in some ways. The actual act of writing it isn't incredibly difficult. The ...

Book Covers & Consistency

I've been in the market for designing a new cover for Taking Chances. Unfortunately, so many businesses charge exorbitant amounts for just the basic service.
