I am excited and proud to be part of a project called the Northbound Writers Anthology. There are about 20 of us local authors, corralled by Professor Bob Comenole, who will be contributing our diverse writings to this book. We have sci fi, poetry, personal memoirs, war stories, historic fiction, flash fiction, and much more! I can't wait to tell you more about it, as it is coming together very quickly! It'll be available in time for the holidays. So, woo-hoo!

Details soon...

Dear Readers:

Usually, by this time of year, I'm happily planning ahead for all the authors fairs, craft fairs, library events and farmers markets that are abundant in the spring, summer and autumn months. Unfortunately, due to events and changes in my personal life, I probably will not be making many, if any, appearances this year. There's still a new book coming by year's end. I'll keep you informed of places you can buy it.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Self Published Book Expo

Posted by Holly Gaskin on Wednesday, October 6, 2010,
I had a wonderful time (and so did the Husband) at the Self Published Book Expo in NYC. There were many learning opportunities to be taken advantage of, and many experts to learn from. The only down side was that there were multiple lectures going on simultaneously, so I had to choose which ones I wanted to go to. I think I made the right choices! The freebies alone were worth the price of admission. I grabbed, literally, BAGFULS of literature and swag from The Writer Magazine, Amazon CreateS...

My husband and I both participated in the First Annual Cheddar Cheese Festival in Adams, NY on Saturday. Together, we are "Woods and Words"... Pete is a luthier (builder of stringed instruments), and I, of course, am a wordsmith. Pete had one of his finished ukuleles on display, as well as a partially assembled work-in-progress. He kept busy sanding and filing a neck throughout the day. So many people stopped to ask, in complete shock and awe: "You BUILT that?!?", pointing at the handsome ten...

Me? Technologically Challenged??

Posted by Holly Gaskin on Monday, June 28, 2010,
I don't consider myself to be technologically challenged. Well, DIDN'T. Until I started to compile my ebook. Er, well, I tried to... with dreadful results. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?!! I feel like a nincompoop. especially since the Ebook Pro manual declares it's "so easy a 6-year-old could do it!"

Anyone know of a 6-year-old for hire??

I don't understand HTML. I don't get why the example window in the manual looks nothing like what I see when I open up my ebook for editing. Why, oh, why is it savin...

Happy Weekend!

Posted by Holly Gaskin on Saturday, May 1, 2010,
I am happy to report that the writing of my new eBook is going well. I have lined up some great interviews with experts in the medical field. I am so lucky for their willingness to share their knowledge with me, free of charge! Actually, the hardest part is writing what I already know, because it involves a lot of uncomfortable memories from my childhood. But sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone in order to grow.

I'm taking advantage of the vast amounts of information on David R...

Still So excited!

Posted by Holly Gaskin on Thursday, April 22, 2010,
The thing with events like the Ultimate Success seminar, is when you come back to "real life," it can be a letdown. The "buzz" wears off after a couple of days, and you can feel depressed. Not so this time! In keeping in touch with some ofg the wonderful people I met... Aly & Andrea, Peggy McColl, Rich German, David Ricklan, Ken Brown, Dr. Deb, Alison Comrie... the positive vibes are still STRONG! It feels good to be following through and not just day-dreaming or wasting time planning. I'm wr...
