  1. Hi Becky!
    It’s been awhile since I’ve been here to see you! I wanted you to know my dear friend, with all the wonderful info you share here, you have helped me become a better writer since my 1st book Released in Nov 2012. And my eBook finally released this 1st of June 2013 with a Awesome New cover. I also just entered my very 1st writers CONTEST!! SO Thank you for what you do here on your Blog!! I also have been waiting for this book!! It will help a lot of writers…….Happy Day! *Author, Catherine Lyon*
    PS….I have my Contest Essay Posted on my Blog, would LUV your thoughts!


    • Thank you so much for your kind words, Catherine! I am so happy that anything I post is of help for any other writers and especially for the debut, or new writer. That is why I created this blog. At first it was just going to be a book review blog for new writers. I still intend for it to be a review blog, however the data has shown that most people would prefer articles and personal information about the joys and pitfalls of beginning to write as well. So, I’m going to do both. Any suggestions for what you would like to be included are very welcome. I will go over to your blog and read your essay. Congratulations on entering the contest and the best of luck to you! 🙂

      I think what you blog about is so important too! There are tons of blogs out there about alcohol, drugs, quitting smoking, along with so many other addictions, but not too many that deal with gambling addiction. So many people don’t consider it an addiction. I know I didn’t. I just thought that I enjoyed going out and having a good time. After a while though, I realized I wasn’t–having a good time I mean. I would spend every last dime and then hated myself. I know, I have been there. Carry on with your message, my friend. It is a good message for everyone. 🙂


      • THANK YOU for your kind words! I really appreciate your Recovery Support! Sadly….you are right, that there is not many about Addicted Compulsive Gambling, and treatment is the same….WE have a LONG way to go in our Gambling Recovery Community.!! Catherine
