Here's to the start of a wonderful new year
(so amazing, that the first 50 years look like a warm-up)
Guest PostBy Jeff Bennington Author of The Indie Author’s Guide to the Universe The monsters have been screaming in your head for
years, scratching and clawing at your brain until you finally put pen to paper
and let them out. You had dreamed of writing a book or a series until
you couldn’t take it anymore. The itch needed to be scratched, and you needed
to free the creatures that had taken residence in your imagination before they
consumed, devoured, or, worse, possessed you. So, write you did. You worked for months and years
perfecting not only the story but your delivery through study, peer review, and,
finally, a professional edit. You sighed, taking in a breath of fresh air when at
last you had a beautiful cover that added color and vitality to your dream. The monsters in your brain were freed. You let Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Goodreads,

Today I'm happy to happy to host MJ Rose, an author I've long followed on Facebook and who I greatly admire for her writing and her book marketing acumen, she is the author of eleven novels and the founder of AuthorBuzz.

The weather is unseasonably warm today. It's 60 F and sunny and there are a lot of people who are hoping that winter is behind us. Not me, of course. I'm incredibly disappointed that I'm not sitting under a blanket of four feet of snow.
I thought I should make a little something to kick-off the upcoming summer season. We'll start with some ice cream that perfectly reflects my ever-changing state of mind. Can't decide whether to have vanilla or chocolate? No decision necessary! You can have both!
Then we'll take these chocolate chip cookies that I had in the freezer. It's a good idea to use them frozen so that they won't crumble when you add the scoop of ice cream.
I created a little assembly area. Place a scoop of ice cream on the inside of one cookie. Then put the tops on them to create a chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich.
John and Heidi are coming next weekend for a birthday visit.
Do you think I should put this platter of delicious…
