Pelky Sisters

282.jpgDay 282 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Write one character from seven perspectives…today is his/her mother.

Shannon: He’s a good kid. I know he gets into trouble, but he just needs a little more direction. I don’t believe he’s found his passion yet, but once he does I know everyone will see what I see. Even when he was little he just wanted to make people laugh. I know that all this is. I know how sweet he can be.

Erin: There is no love like a mother’s love, but I feel so blessed that my motherly love goes to him. He deserves every bit of it. My boy has the kindest heart, that I wouldn’t believe if I didn’t see it on a daily basis. Even at his worst he was still better than so many at their best, which made up for any of his short comings.

Remembering Mathew sheppard 

Pride Matters

(December 1, 1976 – October 12, 1998)

Mathew Shepard died on October 12th, 1998 at Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado – six days after a homophobic attack that took place on October 6th, 1998 – and left to die at Laramie, with heavy brain injuries in Wyoming, U.S.A.

16 Ideas of How to Promote Your Book Before and During Launch

A Writer's Path

by Anna del C. Dye

To promote or not, that is the great dilemma. If you are an author, you have to promote your book or no one will know it is there. Besides, even if you are traditionally published you are expected to promote your book. If you ask me, promoting is the least fun thing you do as an author. After all, you want to move on into your next book, not spend hours convincing people that they should buy your book.
