i hope everyone's enjoying their thursday evening!!!

i wanted to dedicate this post to blurbs; specifically, i'm
looking for a good two or three blurbs to be included on the
back of my newest release,'wife of the heart'. and i'm asking
anyone who has purchased a copy of my first book, 'lovestoned'
to participate. how, you may ask, can i be down with such a great

all you have to do is this: email me at
with a 5-7 sentence statement on how you felt about 'lovestoned'
along with your name(or nickname)and where you're from. the best
two(or three) will get included in print.

i can't wait to see the responses. until the next time, stay
positive and productive!!

letting go and letting it be good.

i think that one of the hardest tasks to undertake before creating a
book - well, really anything in life - is to let go of any fears and
doubts you may have. as easy as it is to say, it's harder on a daily
basis. you're dealing with your own emotional baggage, bills, errands,
bills, work...and did i mention bills? but there's one or two things i
like to do to make letting go of the stress those situations bring each


if you wake up feeling down, it's hard to shake that off as the day
progresses. kind of like quicksand, but more subtle. you have to find
a way to believe that you'll succeed and today will be a good day. find
a moment to just breathe. smile at absolutely nothing at all. do a nice
thing for someone just because. when you do that, you start to feel less
heavy, and you get that rush of energy flowing through your body.

honestly, this helps a lot. if you dream, and you visualize yourself in a
great situation, you can find yourself carrying that out in real life. after
all, dreams are an extension of our life. and if you dream big, who's to
say you can't live big as well?

point i'm trying to make is, you have to let go of your fears. you can't
eradicate them entirely. but if you make them so inconsequential that you
can't feel them invade your life on a daily basis, you're on your way to
whatever it is you want in life. for me, i had an idea of how liberating
that feeling could be but i never actively realized it until a few years
ago. once you do that, your mind and spirit can do things and create ideas
that can cause change...including within yourself.

new projects, new beginnings.

hey folks, this is the second official entry on the 108 Press
blog. at the moment, i'm hard at work ensuring that the second
print of 'lovestoned' hits the streets as well as getting myself
ready to deliver the newest book, 'wife of the heart' before the
summer ends. if it sounds like a major undertaking, it is. but i
welcome the challenge only because i believe in everything these
books represent. i believe you'll feel the same way. this time
period of creation is a juggling act between feeling like it's
a chore and relishing the fact that i'm sharing something profound
with the world. the key for me is, looking at it as the beginning
of something beautiful.

anyway, that's all for now...more updates to come(without the big
lapse in time, i promise!!)
