New Beginnings

It's funny that I've struggled to find the perfect title for this post. I'm trying to convey the message that I'm doing new things with my life. Moving house soon, launching my own publishing company. But I don't want the word "new" to mean this is only the beginning, because while it is that, it's also a continuation of a life I've lived thus far.

Yes it's super exciting that I'm going to be a publisher, but that's not where it stops. Once my publishing house is up and running I will continue to be excited on a daily basis when it comes to innovating and always looking forward in the world of books.

Yesterday while I was driving back and forth from my bf's house to mine, shifting his stuff for his house move, I saw a tree that was growing flat against a wall. Over the weekend Anthony showed me how 2D trees are pruned and grown, online. Last Christmas I got him a mutant tree. Actually called a family tree, but I prefer my version. lol

So yeah, like a tree newly growing I sat down for a relax this afternoon. I've been moving things all week. I got out my watercolour paint marker pen set. I started drawing a tree as an example of new beginnings in our lives. But like a living tree the progress that happens as I endeavour to publish amazing new authors, the life I breathe into my business will be ongoing. New branches stem from roots. My start-up company will progress into more imprints in future, and so on...

Welcome to the Thinkerbeat Anthology Interview
Q: What inspired you to start publishing? A: I wrote my first story when I was really young. I used to sit with a typewriter and clunk away at the keys for hours. I’d make a lot of mistakes, but I kept trying. Later, I started sending stories out for publication. I got a lot of rejections, just like everyone does.
In college I studied the music business and learned about managing talent. I also played around with the idea of becoming a computer programmer, but my creative side won out and I spent a number of years working in the music business.
Down the road, I got an offer to write a children’s book for a publisher. I thought, well, 500 words, how hard can that be? It took me months to finish it. You spend more time describing the illustrations on the page than you do putting words on the page. The staff editor was never happy and we disagreed on a lot of things. But I learned from him. I also kept in mind that if I didn’t play along, I’d ne…

Guest Post from Author Samantha Tonge on Her New Novella

How to Get Hitched in Ten Days is my first novella and the story just flew onto the page. It is a tale of friendship, unrequited love and about turning around the challenges that occasionally strike us all as we go through life. Mikey helps the boyfriend of his best friend and flat mate, Jasmine, turn around a disastrous Valentine’s Day proposal.
Early reviews are coming in and I am thrilled that many readers are reacting to Mikey in the way I intended – they all love him and wish he was part of their lives.As one reviewer,Coffeeholic Bookworm says:
“ I want some Mikey in my life! Mikey isn’t your typical hero. He’s soft, fluffy, sensitive and yummy. His friendship with Jasmine was admirable. He’s a keeper
Do you have a best friend? Someone you can turn to in your hour of need?
I think I created this character because, apart from my lovely husband, I don’t. And sometimes life gets difficult. You don’t necessarily want to burden your family or partner with your problems. You simply want a…
