Still Loving Books In The Digital Age
My hallway being taken over by books. I've always loved books. But I have to admit, now that there are now so many television series that tell season-long stories, it sometimes cuts into my reading time. (Recent favorites: Agents of Shield and Jessica Jones...

My plan for this blog entry was to share with you my thoughts on the 2016 Ghostbusters movie , which I loved. I had notes sketched out on a yellow legal pad (because I really like writing on those). But then this morning I realized I was so close to finishi...

Breaking for a Historic Moment
Two posts ago, I shared my main goals for the rest of the year and included a timeline. As I write my first draft of the last book in my Awakening series, having that timeline out there for all to see has helped me return to the keyboard even when I'd reall...

"If there were a mother of a divine messiah, it wouldn’t be me." Chapters 1-17 now on Wattpad -- 17 has a cool car video of the Monte Carlo Cyril rents.

When it's worth it to take a break and watch a historic moment on TV.

The Value of Retreating
One of many sunsets during the retreat. In early July, I spent seven days at a creative retreat organized by Rabbit Hole (a company that designs live interactive gaming experiences). We stayed in a house on a river in Indiana with an outdoor grill, fire pit...

Author, Attorney, Member of AAIM
Introduction
Lisa M. Lilly's poems and short fiction have appeared in numerous print and on-line magazines, including Parade of Phantoms, Strong Coffee, and Hair Trigger. Lisa's first published novel, The Awakening, features a young woman who inexplicably becomes pregnant and struggles for her own  -- and her baby's -- survival against the malevolent forces that wish her harm.  Lisa is currently working on The Awakening Book II: The Unbelievers.  Her collection of short stories, The Tower Formerly Known as Sears and Two Other Tales of Urban Horror, is also available on Amazon. A short film of the title story was made under the title Willis Tower.  In addition to being an author, Lisa is an attorney who handles appeals and class actions. After her parents died in 2007 due to injuries caused by an intoxicated driver, Lisa joined the board of the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM).

I have a small firm and handle complex commercial litigation. I switched to ePageCity after several years with a different (and more expensive) web hosting and design service. The transition was seamless, including the transition of my email. The team building the site kept in touch with regular updates and eased me through the process. I had no disruption to my practice at all. I like the look and content of the site better than my previous one, and the pricing is more reasonable than what I paid before. The training on editing my web content was extremely helpful, and I can add additional content and pages myself anytime I choose, which is wonderful. The ePageCity site is also easier to navigate from a user standpoint.
