My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

Some Inspiring and Helpful Advice on Getting Published.


Found my way to author: Louise Penny’s site a couple of days ago.

I had been reading about her book: Still Life  a mystery novel, in our local newspaper.

I’m really looking forward to reading/reviewing some of her books in the near future. Louise Penny is originally from Toronto, now living outside Montreal. She is a journalist and  New York Times best-selling author.

She includes a page: Getting Published  that has some helpful and interesting advice. Inspiring! I hope you enjoy it too.

The bolded text above is actually links. When I changed the default text color from grey to black (why does WP use grey as default???) the links showed up as just text.

Author: Geraldine

I am a freelance writer, poet, artisan, avid book/product reviewer and award-winning cookbook author. I recently published the second volume of my new vegetarian cookbook series: The Groovy Green Kitchen (Volume 2): Simply, Super, Supper Soups and my inspirational, pro-active and fun book/eBook, all about aging well: Laughing AT the Grim Reaper! Gems of Wisdom for Aging Well. I am also the author of: The Groovy Green Kitchen (Volume 1): Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker. Third Chapter, Second Chance (a mid-life romance). Not Just for Vegetarians: Delicious Homestyle Cooking, the Meatless Way and the poetry collections: Haiku Reflections: The Four Seasons (Volumes I, II and III) and My Poetic Path. These titles are available at all the Amazon sites. When I'm not writing or creating new recipes, I love to knit and crochet; usually with some "help" from feline friend, the yarn-loving Mr. Cheddar! 🐱 With Blogger, I also host my new author's site: Geraldine Helen Hartman and my product review blog: My Real Life Reviews. I hope you will visit often and enjoy all of my sites.😂 Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing You a Happy Week and Namaste!
