OEBooks Launches A New Look

Today my website went live, in addition to OEBooks getting a new look, all thanks to a super talented web development team. In my book they are experts because... because... well gosh-doggonit, because they had me to work with.

Look, I'm just going to go on and say it. I sure hope I was an okay client. I don't typically categorize myself an extreme expert at compromise when it comes to anything I'm passionate about; which (as if this needs to be added), I was very passionate about OEBooks' old look, for both my blog and website. But I think I did pretty well, in as far as compromise goes. I tied on my compromising hat real tight when told all of my precious designs would have to be redesigned, and clenched my teeth extra hard to some very candid counseling, and said, "okay, sure, I promise... you'll hear not a peep out of me."

Now, I haven't yet been given a direct answer when I asked how I did, but NetWorkFolio gets the top grade from me for being patient, thorough, honest, and combining my vision and goals to design and build a website that is attractive, clear, informative, and interoperates with a multitude of platforms. 

There's still a little bit of organization (on my part) that needs to be done (on my blog); but thanks to the nice work done this will not affect all of the book paraphernalia yet to come.

In the meantime, I'm reading Benefit of the Doubt by Myra A. Dorsey, and so far this book is as good as good can get. It's so fitting my mood. I'm already invested into the writing; nestling and cozying up real close with this one. Kendall is something else, and the storytelling is super fantastic. It's still too early to tell, but something tells me this one might end up as one of my top 10 favorite reads this year.

And oh, yes, I see J.K. Rowlings 'first book for adults' is out. 'The Casual Vacancy.' No matter where I click I can't avoid missing it because it is everywhere, just short of tapping me on the shoulder to remind me of my promise. So, here goes one more book I'll be adding, since a promise is a promise.


  1. :-) I'm halfway through The Casual Vacancy. It's certainly different from Harry Potter.

    1. oh no... though I suspected, despite having never read one of her books...that this one might really test my patience. But I have my fingers (and toes) crossed really tightly, hoping I like it, since I promised to review it if it hits the number one spot... which of course it did.

  2. It was a pleasure working with you! Now your fans can look at your website on their mobile devices like iPad, iPhone, Android and of course, any computer!

    By the way, we love the illustration you made of us taking down your old site in exchange for the new one. You should seriously feature more of your artwork throughout your blog and website.

    Enjoy the new website RYCJ!

  3. Thanks Nando & Gabi. I really appreciate everything you have done.

    And glad you liked the illustration, though it may have been a lot sadder, actually It would have never happened, had it not been for what you've done.

Genuine Women Rock!

Funny thing about genuine women is they rarely say much when first meeting one. Oh, she’ll look me up and down, sizing me up I’m guessing, taking in most of what she thinks she sees before ever imparting any real piece of her mind. Gossip is just not her thing; mines neither, which is why when she unleashes one of them pearls of wisdom, Baby Look Out, I know this is a Woman Who Rocks!
Genuine Women are as Compassionate as Passionate

Doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes, do wrong, be wrong, get mad and have those bad days. We all have our hard days, ugly ways. Name a human who doesn't. And still, turning the dial back upbeat, I know one-hundred-ten percent a genuine woman’s words are not cheap.

A Toast to the Writing Resolution Blog Hop Ball

I've been waiting to attend this ball all year, and now here it is…the perfect spot to slip in another Top Ten list, and call it my writing resolutions.
Before …oh boy…I get started, please know that Meg Waite-Clayton at 1stbooks is hosting the blogger ball. All the rules can be found (and followed) by clicking the icon pic in my caption, which also should be your caption as well. But before you get to clicking, here are my writing resolutions going into the New Year.

SHEWRITES Blogger's Ball #7 – YipYip HOORaY!!!

I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been…
