Showcasing Author Clients

It has always been my belief that hard work shouldn’t go to waste. I also believe that if something is not a good fit in one place, there’s always a place for it elsewhere. The following showcase was deemed incorrect for a magazine I submitted to, so I’m sharing it here with you. Greetings to … Continue reading Showcasing Author Clients

CarolCooks2…Week 10…in my Kitchen…made from scratch…Sourdough Starter…

Retired? No one told me!

Welcome to my kitchen where I cook almost everything from scratch…Last week I revealed all and one of the reasons why I cook from scratch…

Sourdough bread is a lovely thing and seeing that starter bubbling and rising is a sight to behold…I read copious books and blogs and all very successful…Don’t that fool you…You may be lucky and Take 1 may be the one which is perfect and you then have a friend for life and of course, they will have a name as everyone names their sourdough starter…

sour dough starter sourdough culture

I started using expensive unbleached bread flour…that bombed…eventually after much handwringing and cursing it worked…maybe it was the humidity here or the water…I read up about water and followed the guidelines,  changed my flour…Trial and error…and then miraculously…It worked!

My point is do not start a sourdough starter if you are not prepared to fail…BUT when at last…

How a Rooster Crows: Story 8 of the Muttley Crew Series Poppycock by Trish Hubschman #Author’sCorner #WordPressWednesday

How A Rooster Crows

Story 8 of Muttley Crew


By Trish Hubschman

July 2008

“Cock-a-doodle-doo! Now you try it, son,” I say. “Hold your head up, back straight, chest puffed out and crow.”

Chick-a-dean takes a step back, nearly falling off the fence. I close my eyes and sigh. Teaching my grandson how to do the morning wakeup call isn’t going to be easy. He’s a bit uncoordinated. His father would have been a pro at this. I raised him that way. But he flew the coop a few years back, so now I have to work with Chick-a-dean. I love the kid, but I wish he was more like his old man, could crow like a pro.

Regaining his footing, he did what I told him, –straightened his back, held his head high, pushed his chest out, opened his beak and…Cock-a-ploosh.

“Oops,” Chick-a-dean says. “I didn’t do so…

The Great and Powerful Chair by Patty L. Fletcher April 8, 2021 #Author’sCorner #What’sUp

Pattys World

Good morning!

This is Patty L. Fletcher and Prince Edward, A.K.A. Sweet Eddy reporting live and in person from the Great and Powerful Chair!

Sweet Eddy and I have discovered our chair is indeed enchanted. “What’s that? Oh, you’ve not heard of the Great and Powerful Chair? I suppose, I should really start at the beginning of the tale. So, grab your favorite morning brew, find yourself a comfortable reading nest and I’ll tell you a story.

Once upon a long ago, there was a lady who had an old, dilapidated recliner. This old thing had for quite some time, served her well. She had snuggled babies, cats, and even Labradors in this old warn out chair but sadly, its loving comforting life was coming to an end.

The footstool was starting to get hung when the lady tried to lift it up or put it down, the back springs…

Blind Faith by Marlene Mesot #Author’sCorner #WordPressWednesday

Blind Faith

by Marlene Mesot

It takes courage to try something new. Stepping out in faith is like being led by someone else as if you were walking blind. When people attend a disability sensitivity training and try walking blindfolded with a cane, it is an eye opening experience. In order to do this, you must trust your guide implicitly, believing that your welfare and safety is his or her top priority at that moment.

Walking by faith takes this kind of trust too. We cannot see God or His perfect intentions for us. We must step out blindly and reach for His hand, trusting that He will guide us. Another more common example, such as being pushed in a manual wheelchair through a hospital corridor, or into an elevator, takes this same kind of trust. Every time you are a passenger in someone else’s vehicle, that person…

Ever Lost in the Moment by Patty L. Fletcher from The Avocet Spring Print Edition 2021 #PoetryPlace

Pattys World

Ever Lost in the Moment

The scorching wind roared angrily across the jagged peaks above.

The thundering waves pounded the steep cliffs below.

Standing with bare toes clinging to the rocks, naked in the fading day.

Faces moist with the ocean spray.

The sunset a ball of fiery molten liquid melting into the churning sea.

He, seeing her there, dangerously close to the edge.

She, breathing the dank salty air.

Her ebony hair streaming long and beautiful round her there.

He, drinking her in, his senses catching fire with want and desire,

she, like a deer, sensing danger in the wind, felt him there.

Turning to him her mouth parting in a gorgeous smile, they stood,

the only sound the roaring of the wind, pounding of the waves,

and song of the gulls. Their hearts beat as one. In perfect time with the rhythmic sea, they knew, they would be…

Visit with a Friend by the Late Phyllis Staton Campbell #Author’sCorner

Visit with a Friend

By: Phyllis Staton Campbell

Taken from Hobbies and Such

Edgar Guest said it, old friends are best, and although this isn’t strictly true, there is certainly something in it. There’s nothing like a visit with friends that you know so intimately, that you can predict exactly what is going to happen next in their lives. We can ignore these friends for years, yet when we go back to them, they’re waiting, warm, thought provoking, sometimes inspiring, just as they were the day we met them. They are always there at our beck and call; they ask nothing of us; they never judge us, they never change.

Recently, I visited one of those old friends. I first got to know her when I was about ten-years-old when confined to the school infirmary with some childhood plague, possibly measles. Anyhow, she marched in via a Braille volume, that…

TIPS FROM TELL-IT-TO-THE-WORLD MARKETING: What Is KENP In The Amazon KDP Sales Report? #Author’sCorner #Tip

Pattys World

Good morning to all.

Here at Tell-It-To-The-World Marketing (Author, Blogger, Business Assist) where we support talented authors, as well as successful business owners in their marketing, by marrying social media, with more traditional approaches, the goal is to help the client market their Book, Blog, or Business to the absolute best of their ability.

One of the best ways for me to do this, is to share tips with my clients, so that they can define the services I provide them, to better meet their needs.

It is my belief that an author should have all the information concerning the marketing of their books so they can make the correct decisions according to their goals.

With that thought in mind each day, I work to find the best information I can to help those I work with do just that.

Today, whilst scrolling through the multitude of blog posts I…
