I'm New Here — Looking for Advice on How to Improve : 12 Must See Paris Locations from Gigi

I'm a virgin here, not at all sure how and what to do! My Chapter1-Take1 blog is for fellow followers of books making their way to the movie screen. I do my versions of reviews and I love discovering the casting info, finding production photos, trailers, info on costume design and films scores, interviews for upcoming screen adaptations of books we love. Child 44, Me Before You, Where'd You Go, Bernadette, and more. I also look at classics from the past. Today I've got a post for fans of the…

Proof is in the pages

We’ve sent for a proof copy of “Slightly Off the Mark”, which should arrive around the end of the month. Another run-through to come, and hopefully no major problems in formatting—then one step closer to a print run. Next will be to decide how many to order.

Working on my 2nd novel

After I published my first novel, I decided to work on my second novel that entirely takes place in Boston during the terrorist bombings that took place on the marathon of April 19, 2013. When I saw the horrible images on the news, I felt the goose bumps, just like the 9/11 attack in 01.


Here in this blog, you can read the prologue I wrote.

How I Ruined Winter … For Almost Everyone




I love January! Said no one, ever.


Okay, some people actually do love winter, which just goes to show you: Northern Indiana needs better mental health screening. I used to take part in winter activities, but I was young then, and young people just haven’t learned that being miserable isn’t an adventure.


When I was a kid, I loved sledding, snowball fights, and…

Here's hoping 2015 is better

I’m not going to lie to you: 2014 sucked.  Everybody got sick or hurt at least once, and the world’s a train wreck. On a personal level I lost my first writing job after twenty-three years of steady work, and the book sales that might have made up for it have stagnated. On a family level I can’t even say “at least we have our health”.

But I can’t dwell on the bad stuff—there lies madness, and don’t we have enough madness? I have a new part time writing job and people are, if…

Merry Christmas!

I would like to take the time to Share the Gift of Christmas with you. This is a season of love and kindness, a time to show others that we care about them more than they realize. Why do we want to do better at Christmas time? I believe it stems from the Birth of the Savior. "He is the Gift" given to us from a loving Heavenly Father.

Russell M. Nelson said, "Christmas is a time of reflection on what we can become because of God’s sacred gift. As we discover the gift, we learn of the…

Secrets of the Moon Saga Work in Progress

As of right now I’m busy trying to finish the Secrets of the Moon saga. I just turned in book two and three. Although, they’re more of a 1.5 kind of books considering that not only are they entirely from Kyran’s POV but it depicts what’s going on while my main character, Marjorie, is still at the hospital after being attacked by a werewolf.

Now, if you’re not familiar with the first book below is a little more information on it:
