Sometimes, it's the other way around... I'm pretty sure I have no idea what they just said, but don't want to seem like I'm not listening or keep saying, "What?" So I nod and grin, and say, "Yeah."

Authors, are you indie, traditional, or hybrid? What made you choose the path you're on?
I can't be the only one who struggles with this question. I have repeatedly considered submitting to a publisher or agent only to back out every time not because I think my work isn't good enough, but because I read an articl...

If you could go back, what would tell the writer you were five years ago about the business? If you're contemplating writing in multiple genres and aren't particularly prolific, you might want to read this. #amwriting  #IAN1
Live and learn, isn't that what they say? Working on Departure has me reminiscing, realizing how little I knew back in 2011 when I first got into self-publishing. I had no idea what stock art was, or how to make covers, or wh...

Interview with John Pearce – Author of LAST STOP: PARIS
http://bit.ly/1Yje7xF
Your latest book is now up for pre-orders at Amazon, and will launch on December 1st.
When you published Treasure of Saint-Lazare did you know you would also be publishing the sequel, Last Stop: Paris? Oh, yes. Of course, I didn’t know at the time it would be titled Last Stop: Paris, but I had a sense of how the story would end. A lot of my book ideas come during my daily four-mile walks in Paris.

My husband and I received a gift certificate to The Wishing Well for taking care of our neighbors' house while they were away and visited the restaurant on 6/23/15. Having never been there we had no expectations other than from what we could glean from the menu. With entrees ranging up to $50 ea (lobster with butter) we figured we were in for a delicious meal. Initial impression of the place is old and outdated. From the drapes to the dishes they served the zucchini and yellow squash salad in, the place is in need of updating if they're going to charge a premium and get away with it with me. The building is an 1800's historic building with none of historic flair of similar places like Longfellows (whose food has also unfortunately suffered over the past few years from poor quality control). The Wishing Well actually had a faint "basement" smell to it, though I'm sensitive to that stuff. Old time music had me feeling this place catered to an elderly clientele. Fine, but not romantic for a middle age couple. Service was spotty. I've had better. On several occasions we were wishing someone would come back and fill our glasses of tea (which were small and heavily iced so easy to polish off in a few sips). The menu wasn't exactly our taste. I don't eat snails or liver and I'm not a big meat eater. There wasn't really a chicken option (or a pasta one) that I could recall, and definitely not on the three course menu. What we did have was decently priced for the portions, though I can say I'm a good home cook and my husband said, "You do this better at home" on more than one occasion. He did enjoy his 10 oz strip steak which was cooked to order and said the French onion soup was good, but small. I had the lobster bisque which was light on the lobster and heavy on the cream. The Whistling Kettle in Ballston Spa does a better bisque and it's a lunch place. The waitress did offer to add Cream Sherry tableside, but unfortunately due to medication I was unable to have anything with alcohol in it. That might have made the difference, but I couldn't risk it. My crab cake was a decent size, though rather flavorless and I left half of it on the plate. It had the consistency and taste of a slice of bread. I also don't eat mustard with my crab cake but was at a loss for something else that looked appetizing. I got the sense that service was "lurking," which was fine as they were surely trying to attend to us at a proper pace, but why then leave empty glasses? I don't know. From the moment we stepped through the door my husband and I decided to spend the whole $100.00 gift card because this wasn't the kind of place we'd come back to. If you want a can't miss meal in this price range, with charming but updated ambiance, and excellent service visit Lakeside in Ballston Lake. We've been there so many times and the food is nothing short of spectacular. The Wishing Well won't be seeing us again. Not that I think they'll mind. Two and a half stars at best.

My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Marshfield at my brother-in-law's suggestion because it was close to his house. I can't really say anything good about the place.This is one of three Holiday Inns we stayed at this week, and the only one not to offer a complimentary breakfast. Desk staff wasn't welcoming, didn't explain anything about the hotels amenities (if there are any), and didn't seem to know that their non-smoking rooms were anything but. We are non-smokers with a strong aversion to the smell of stale smoke. Even in a non-smoking room, the smoke smell will knock you down. We went across the street to Pick & Save to load up on candles and air freshener. Neither helped long-term. The woman at the desk says WI has only been smoke-free in public places about a year. Being from NY, these folks are a decade behind. Marshfield, you have a long way to go to call these rooms non-smoking. We felt like we slept in an ash tray.

We recently moved from a 3BR to 4BR home using Spa Moving services. The three man team and truck we were provided were top notch. There were plenty of blankets and a nice, clean truck large enough to haul our entire load. The movers were extremely careful when covering and moving large items, mindful not only of the items themselves, but of surrounding walls and railings. They moved quickly and efficiently and maintained a pleasant attitude despite the hot temperatures and heavy lifting. The valuable service was affordable and professional--A++++++ Highly recommended.

This is my third of three Holiday Inn reviews from a week of travelling for my son's Navy graduation in Great Lakes, Illinois. Compared with Waukegan, Illinois, Columbus wasn't as nice, but it was head and shoulders above Holiday Inn, Marshfield, Wisconsin. The room was a bit cramped feeling, but it was a true non-smoking room--a relief, after sleeping in the Marshfield ashtray. The bathroom has a mold/mildew problem, which the front desk staff assured me is in more than one of the rooms and is resultant of a poor repair job they are in the process of having fixed. Apparently the initial repair was done incorrectly and the mold/mildew is reemerging through the caulk. That being said, staff was friendly. There's a restaurant in the lobby that's pricey, but the bartender/waitress was very pleasant. We had a pizza, having gotten in late due to storms. It was nice to have food available at 9 PM. The lobby is very nice, the rooms good other than the bathroom. A complimentary breakfast is included in the stay, but the hygiene of the buffet was questionable. Compared with Waukegan, this breakfast falls flat on both quality and cleanliness. The waffle machine was nice, but mostly this was the only other complaint besides the bathroom. Not a bad place and we've certainly stayed in worse this week. I'd love to say it was awesome, but it was just okay. Convenient to the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, a must-see if you're in the area!

If you're headed to Great Lakes for PIR weekend, the Holiday Inn Express Waukegan (HIE) is the perfect place to stay. Conveniently located to PIR, GL A school, and Sarge's Meet & Greet, each are only a few short minutes away. Plenty of shopping right outside the hotel and an array of restaurants. Beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious and nicely appointed, clean and well-kept, and the breakfast is great, especially compared with those offered at the two other Holiday Inns we stayed at this past week. Staff is courteous and respectful of our new sailors. A new facility with ample parking and truly non-smoking rooms, this one's a great choice.

I've lived in Bspa for over eight years and boy, have I been missing out. A&J Nail Art is not much to look at on the outside, but don't let the cover fool you. Inside is spacious, clean, and friendly as they come. $22 gets you the best, most relaxing pedicure you can imagine. Comfortable massage chairs during atop-notch pedicure complete with leg and feet massage, a neck and shoulder massage at the drying station afterward, AND for $22.00, a paraffin treatment on your heels is included. A MUST for sandal season. Can't say enough good about the place, but I'll definitely be back.
