Part 12 of The Journal Fodder Junkies Daily Challenges Available now!


I finally got around to wrapping up the last installment of The Journal Fodder Junkies Daily Challenge. I wanted to have it published a couple of months ago, but unfortunately other things just got in the way as I got ready for Art and Soul and worked to finish my new self-published book. The Daily Challenges just took a back seat.

My Creative Journey is now available!


I can’t believe that my new book My Creative Journey has been published! It seems like I just started working on it, and it was just a week ago that I was announcing that it was finished when I shared a look at the cover. It’s amazing how different self-publishing is to traditional publishing.

When David and I published our first book, The Journal Junkies Workshop, it took about two years to go from acceptance to publication. With My Creative Journey, I mulled over the idea of self publishing for a couple of years, but I’ve only worked on the book for the past two months. In early August, I began photographing and editing pages from my journals figuring out things as I went along. I’m computer savvy, but I am by no means a wiz with Photoshop or InDesign, and there were a lot of challenges. But I plodded along putting in hours and hours of work to get the book together.

I wrapped everything up a week ago, and uploaded it to Kindle Direct Publishing, and ordered a proof. I don’t sound very excited in the video that I recorder this past Monday, but I really was. The book looks gorgeous, and it is truly how I imagined it. The quality is awesome - from the paper to the printing, and I’m even more excited now that I got notification on Tuesday that the book was live on

I mean, wow! Wow! WOW!

Just like that, the book is out there and people are ordering it. I’ve ordered a bunch to be able to sell in person, and I can’t wait to get them. But it somehow feels a bit surreal, like did I just really do that - put together a book and publish it in two months?

And, YES! Yes I did, and I can’t wait to hear what people think of it! If you get a copy, please let me know what you think, and please leave a review on Amazon.

New Book!

I am thrilled to say that I am publishing a new book, and this time, it’s a physical book that you can hold in your hands and flip through. Ever since David and I published The Journal Junkies Workshop and Journal Fodder 365 with North Light Books, we’ve been wanting to publish a book of just journal pages. Unfortunately we’ve been turned down by North Light, as well as several other publishers, but I’ve been mulling over the idea of self publishing a book for quite a while now. Well, it’s almost a reality.

I know that I’ve posted on various social media outlets over the past couple of months and written a couple of blogposts, but I wanted to drop an official announcement and release an image of the cover. So, with any luck My Creative Journey: Select Journal Pages, will hit some time within the next two weeks.

I’ve worked for the past two months to photograph and edit pages from the first 10 volumes of journals (I have over 24), and I put together nearly 70 two-page spreads in chronological order in this new book. I ramped up my work this past week and finished photographing, designing, writing, editing, and creating the cover, and last night I uploaded the completed manuscript to Kindle Direct Publishing (Amazon is phasing out their CreateSpace platform). I’m just waiting for a proof copy of the book, and hopefully, it will be ready for publication very soon. Despite the name of Amazon’s new self-publishing platform, an author can publish Kindle and/or print versions.

This is a book of just my journal pages, and hopefully, we can get a volume of David’s pages published in the near future as well. But in the meantime, I wanted this new book to fit in with our other books, so it’ll be the same size - 8.5”x11” with 144 pages. I even designed the cover to be similar to our other books, but inside you’ll find a series of 2-page spreads, no techniques, no writing prompts, just pure journal goodness.

I’m super excited!

I’ll post once the book is available.
