Self Publishing

It All Depends On Your Readers!

Our world is incredibly advanced and we are able to connect
in ways we never could before.
We have options and resources available to us that make life easier in many ways.
However, technology can only do so much!

The marvels of today's world allows me the ability to publish my works without the assistance of a literary agent or publishing house.
That is really cool and I'm grateful for that, but there are drawbacks to this as well.
As with everything in life, there are pros and cons.

PRO:
I can get published and I can have control over many aspects of my work.
CON:
You don't have resources to help you polish your work or to promote it.

Whether we are looking at the opportunities of technology or the old traditions, there is one thing that is unchangeable: the reader!
If you don't have an audience then you don't have a career.  It's that simple.
Despite flaws in grammar, spelling, or formatting, a book is only as good as it's story.
Despite a good story, a book is only shared if published.
Despite publication, a book is only known by it's promotions.
Despite any other form of promotion, word-of-mouth from the readers is the most valuable and effective means of gaining an audience.

The only way any author survives
is by the love and support of their readers!

THANK YOU TO ALL MY READERS!

Where To Find Gluten Free Foods

Going Gluten-Free? This Can Help!

Whether you are Celiac or just gluten intolerant to any degree,
it is important to follow a gluten-free diet.

Unfortunately, it can be a difficult lifestyle to uphold.  Not only is it more costly to maintain a gluten-free diet, it is confusing to identify the proper products.
Most people mistakenly think that gluten is just something you eat.  The truth is that gluten can be present in places you least expect, causing you potential health issues.  For someone with Celiac Disease or gluten intolerance, you can get ill no matter how you ingest gluten.  This means that you can get sick from inhaling, absorbing, or digesting glutens.
You need to be aware of everything in your world.  You need to be mindful if your food and healthcare products are gluten free, including soaps and make-up.  You also need to be aware of cross-contamination.  This means that it will be challenging to eat out or to share things in your own home with someone who's not on a gluten-free diet.
For example: don't share the same toaster or foods that you "dip" into, like butter.

Here are some of the stores that you can purchase gluten-free items.
Simply click on the logo and it will link you to the information that store offers regarding gluten-free diets and products.



CUB's link is another good resource for information.
You can search the different departments of groceries and it will give you a list of
Gluten-Free manufactures.


KROGER's link also gives more information about Celiac Disease and GF.


WHOLE FOODS link is a good resource for GF information and has a good list of
HIDDEN GLUTENS!
