Best of March Recap

Book 5 of a 5-book ghostwritten series is with the editor! So, I’ve got a little more breathing room as this month comes to a close.

Bet you’d never guess behind the scenes and outside of these posts are weekly blog posts for a recruitment firm, ad-hoc grantwriting, ghostwriting, and book reviews. Plus, of course, my own work-in-progress (WIP).

What did you think of the daily snippets from Three-Part Harmony?

From children’s nursery rhymes to the thwomp, thwomp sound of a seashell held to your ear and the unique selling proposition (USP) of the iPod, Three-Part Harmony details pieces of my story.  Additional posts include:

My Twin Lives Within
Welcome to Life – Oh, What a Ride
What the GUG is Going On?

Look for future chapter headings such as It Was the Birthday Cake Which Did Her In and What Happened at the Spanish Steps in Rome.

Book Review Week

Can you believe it’s been almost six months since we began our Book Review Week? It’s been such fun hearing from guest bloggers, finding new favorites, and get ready for an exciting April as we take Book Review Week to another level.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we kicked it off with Traveling the Fairy Path by Morgan Daimler. Special thanks to Nimue Brown for reblogging the post to The Pagan & The Pen. Then, since it was Monday, we thought we’d start the week of right and learn The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson. Special guest post by Armando Rios.

Then, in light of my own writing of my life story and the boom of life histories, memoirs, biographies, and autobiographies, we took a step back to Nancy Smith’s Learning Series. Her book Write Your Life Story, helps teach us how to focus what we want to write, how much to reveal, and once it’s all done, how to get it published.

We learned the rest of the story of All the Light We Cannot See by Pulitzer prize winner, Anthony Doerr. And with light comes shadow as we took a look at Deborah Harkness’s second book in the All Soul’s Trilogy, Shadow of Night.

Rounding out our Irish Celtic-ish theme for the month, we did a reverse review. An expectation of the book Celtic Empire by Cliver Cussler and Dirk Cussler. Then, as we finished the week, we learned to embrace our imperfections with Brene Brown’s The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are. Special guest post by Rachel Barber.

Celebrations for Word Nerds

Finally, we celebrated National Pi Day as we took a look how practice makes (almost) perfect when honing your craft. Keep working. Keep filling the gaps. Little by little changes become success and lessons learned.

If you’re new to the blog or are interested in my writing services – ghostwriting, copywriting, proofreading/editing, beta reading, and more – take a look around my website.

As much as I’d love you to connect with me via social media – you can find all the ones I’m on in the bar to your right – I’d much prefer a review of my book currently available on Amazon, “Reflections: The Girl in the Mirror & The Letter”. Currently, it’s got one lonely review. And for less than a cup of coffee, it sure could use a friend or two or ten…. Oh, and we’re on Goodreads too!
