My autobiographical short story "A Lesson in the Fine Art of Living" went up last week. This week, I wanted to share a little about what has taken place regarding my work and life in general. I am in the process of training for a part-time at-home job that will bring in some much-needed income.… Continue reading Lit. and Life Update: Short story, Publishing plans, and the Year ahead
I hope my readers have enjoyed "Lady Of Attica". Now that another project can be checked off my to-do list, I'm tackling a new assignment while working on furthering my education in the literary and publishing field. It's a big job but will be worth it in the end. I would encourage any writer who… Continue reading Career Research and Lit.
Soon, I will begin my new research into literary agents, the submission process, and taking an in-depth look at a particular agency I will probably be submitting my first novel to. A literary surprise will be released here on T.W.N. this month (fingers crossed). Further updates are forthcoming. E.W.

Older content will be removed and new excerpts will debut! For now, I'll use the artwork that has been… Continue reading Announcement / Lit. Update: “Excerpts and New Platforms!”
I'm happy to report I've received my first rejection for the cozy mystery! Now, you're probably wondering why rejection would make me happy. Firstly, it's part of the job. If you are going to be an author and work in the publishing arena, then you have to be comfortable with rejection. This is not… Continue reading Announcement / Lit. Update, and Coming Soon!
Revisions on poetry pieces are under way! I've chosen the basic arrangement and exactly which poems will be in this manuscript. I'm very happy with how it's shaping up and might begin releasing a few excerpts sometime next month. I have been working on furthering my education in the publishing field and will be sharing… Continue reading Lit. Update, etc.
Progress on the poetry manuscript has gone very well. Many of the poems have been selected, and I'm in the process of revising several pieces. I'm not concerned about artwork yet.
