Breakthrough Writer’s Block with These Two Easy Tricks

Sometimes every one of us that writes comes across those moments when we feel stumped.  Our writing isn’t flowing as smoothly and easily as it normally does.  Have you ever wondered why that is?  Perhaps, it stems from stagnation…and you just need to open the gate again so that new ideas can flow.  You need to find a way to breakthrough your writer’s block!

On this pre-launch episode, we share a couple of really great tips.  They are quick and easy and are ones that we use often if we feel stuck.


So, get a pen and paper, a timer (or use a stopwatch – perhaps on your phone), and turn on your favorite music.  It is really that simple.


Now listen to this episode as we share just how we use those above items 🙂


Getting ready for the official launch of Authors Talk About It on February 1st!


Then, we will bring you guest interviews 7 days a week!
Happy writing and ready,

Should You Self Publish or Find a Traditional Publisher?


In today’s world, the traditional way to get your book published is changing.  Finding a publishing house that will accept your book is not an easy task.  In fact, the idea of sending tons and tons of copies of your manuscript to a slew of publishers with the hopes that one will accept it is quickly fading away.  Before you know it that will not be considered the traditional way to get your book published.

More and more authors are self-publishing.  The big six (now the big five) – Penguin-Random House, Macmillan, Harper Collins, Hachette and Simon + Schuster – are not as enticing to some as they once were.  Indie authors (those who self publish) maintain more control when they publish their books themselves.  Nowadays, it is much easier to do that with CreateSpace (Amazon), Lulu, iTunes, Smashwords and more.

We dive into this topic more in this episode.  So, check it out 🙂

Love to self-publish,

Janelle + Rob

Inspiring Couples In Business and In Love

We share with you an interview of ourselves – LOL.  But, really it is just to give you a teaser of what guests might talk about.  It is more than just talking about the content of their book.  It is about the why behind writing it.  Sometimes, we may think it is obvious why someone wrote a book, but that it is not always the case.

Our book, Inspiring Couples In Business and In Love, was released this past summer.  We shared 23 couples’ stories about being business partners as well as romantic partners. There were a number of common themes that ran through the couples including us, but there were a good deal of amazing differences too.

If you are in a committed relationship, then you ARE in business together and this book is a must with all the words of wisdom our amazing couples shared with us for you.  The couples range from down home mom-and-pop business owners to world renowned experts in their field to the CEOs of multi-million dollar corporations.

Honoring you,
