(W.I.N.E.) Writers’ Initiatives, Needs, and Expertise

She dreamed. She achieved.

Are you an author or other small business owner needing help with blogs, About Me pages, or website page content?  As an author myself, I know that the written word is not everyone’s strong point. Not sure if your information flows? Does it draw your prospective client? Grammar and spelling have you stumped? Or do you just want more information on the writing world? I can help you with that!

Are you a reader who has questions about an author’s life? What is their schedule like? Where do they find time to write? The list is endless as to what a reader wants to know about their favorite author. Get to know authors as your friends. We all share something in common. Let’s find out what that is.

From personal experience, I know that authors are always learning, growing, and needing help with one task or another. Or sometimes they simply have a question to ask. Or there is an idea running rampant in their head and they want input – will that make a good book / scene; is that something a person (character) would actually do or say; how do I get that idea on paper? Maybe you just need a little positive encouragement. Whatever your needs, I can help you with that!

In the next months I will be bringing you (authors and readers) information you can connect with. It may be a video or a post informing you of an important step in your author journey. It may be an inside look at how I created a scene, or where my inspiration came from. Journey with me and find your own encouragement and inspiration.

Rejection – or simply NOT NOW?

The Librarian Talks recently had me as a guest on her blog. Thank you for allowing me to share my story. I posted about rejection – it does not always mean no. You can find the full article here: The Librarian Talks.

After reading the post when it went live, I realized a couple of things.

1.) Although the article spoke of an author receiving a rejection letter, this concept could apply to any small business. The photographer that receives a NO to the photos she spent time and money producing; the online retail party that had few, if any, guests show up; and the list goes on. No matter what your profession / hobby, don’t let a NO turn you away from your passion.

2.) “My advice to beginning authors is never give up. Seek your dreams and pursue your goals with everything you have. One day that NOT NOW will turn into your REALITY.” My advice in the article was directed to authors in particular. Authors need to hear this. But so do all other business owners, dream seekers, and hobby enthusiasts.

So, hop on over the The Librarian Talks blog, read my post, and apply it to your life. Your dream!

Till next time,

Love, hugs, and kisses – Taylor

Fabulous Author Friday – Eden Butler

2016_08_26 Eden Butler picture

Welcome Eden Butler!                                                                   Dream big. Work harder.

Eden does both. She dreams big and chases after those dreams by working hard every day. You can feel her dedication and love of writing through the settings and characters in her books. Pick one up today and you will understand.

**** A moment of prayers and positive thoughts for our friend. I’m sure you all recall the recent flooding in Louisiana. Well, Eden was caught up in that mess. Here’s hoping for a good end result.

I’ve Seen You Naked and Didn’t Laugh: A Geeky Love Story

Eden’s newest release is up for Pre-Order on Amazon. This book sounds hilarious. I cannot wait to get my order!2016_08_26 Eden Butler - I've Seen You Naked... cover 2

Raine Quinn was a huge disappointment to her haters. She wasn’t supposed to make it out of Waco, TX. She wasn’t supposed to land even one acting job. And she sure as hell wasn’t supposed to fall in love with her best friend.

Will Callahan liked to call himself the younger, hotter Shatner, minus the ham acting and distracting toupee. He loved everything comics, he loved playing the hero of the beloved, defunct space western, AURA and he loved his best damn friend, Raine Quinn.

Raine and Will shot up the Hollyweird ranks together. They became stars, Geek legends and over the years, family. But one night, with the meddling of their dearly departed friend, too many shots and too much time reminiscing, Raine and Will cross a line…and it’s one they can’t jump back over.

A little about Eden:

Eden Butler is an editor and writer of Fantasy, Mystery and Contemporary Romance novels and the nine-times great-granddaughter of an honest-to-God English pirate. This could explain her affinity for rule breaking and rum.

When she’s not writing or wondering about her possibly Jack Sparrowesque ancestor, Eden patiently waits for her Hogwarts letter, edits, reads and spends way too much time watching rugby, Doctor Who and New Orleans Saints football.

She is currently living under teenage rule alongside her husband in southeast Louisiana.
