Come Meet “the Press”…

Nowata Press Publishing & Consulting, LLC, that is. In case you didn't know, lol. I'm officially 'open for business' with Nowata Press Publishing & Consulting, LLC. I've done a few introductions here and there since the grand opening, but meh - I wanted to do something BIG. Alas, as a new business, the budget for … Continue reading Come Meet “the Press”…

It’s About That Time.

I'm going "Pro" y'all and that means I'll be producing exclusive content for my email subscribers and posting less and less on this and my other WordPress dot com sites. I'll still come by to read your posts; I'll still drop a comment or two, but if you want to keep up with my inconsistent … Continue reading It’s About That Time.

Wow, It’s Been a While.

I don't blog like I used to. I don't even write like I used to. That feverish, head down, nothing else matters until I get this story written type of writing. Used to fuel my weekdays and nights to exhaustion. Somewhere along the line I came to the realization that I had pumped out those … Continue reading Wow, It’s Been a While.

Wait, what?

A line taken directly from my work planner, April 10th,  "Write TFI!! Fuck YouTube & FB". On April 10th I didn't open YouTube or Facebook until lunch. I scrolled, watched, commented, liked for an hour while I ate my sandwich and chips, then closed the tabs as soon as my lunch hour was over.  Without … Continue reading Wait, what?

Dropping the Ball.

Juggling all the superficial shit to avoid my manuscript because somewhere between Breaking Point and Aphrodite's Twin, I lost my drive to write, finish, and publish my work. I'd done it, in relatively rapid succession for seven years straight. I was chasing a high of success that remained out of my reach.  I grew disillusioned. … Continue reading Dropping the Ball.

Camp NaNo

Wow. It's been FOREVER since I last posted. Talk about a whirlwind of activity that on the surface doesn't seem to be moving me forward but I suppose is more putting me in a better position to capitalize on forward momentum when it happens. Wait. What? So, yeah. Here's what's been going on: Signed up … Continue reading Camp NaNo

For my want to be writers…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/joX3E3m7XtI?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent about your lovin’… HA…no, sorry. I’ve got song lyrics on the brain this morning. I am curious, but not about your romantic side. No, this morning, I’m doing a little market research. You see, I’m coming up on my 10 year anniversary of being in business and, well, in case it wasn’t obvious, up … Continue reading For my want to be writers…

Tell Me What You Want…

What you really, really want.  And no, I'm not going to...oh, who am I kidding... Okay, now that I've gotten that out of my system.  I'm conducting a little market research. You see, I've got my 10 year anniversary as an indie published author coming up and it dawned on me that while I've enjoyed … Continue reading Tell Me What You Want…

ACK! 2018 already?!

So much for 2017's goals, eh? But that was then, this is now. Hiddy ho good neighbors. Welcome to the blogging home of me, indie / self-published author Dana Ellington. I did a horrible job hitting my goals last year. Simply horrible. I was more focused on getting my third revenue stream set up to … Continue reading ACK! 2018 already?!

Let the Madness Over Take Us All

NaNoWriMo 2017 Title: The First Immortal Blurb:  Born in the 1800s, now living undercover in the present day Colorado Rockies, Olivia has managed to escape notice with the help of generations of (tribe) Indians.
