Life Changes, Just Breathe

My third book, Life Changes, Just Breathe came by UPS today. It's been a long time in the making.....well, it didn't take long to write, but it took a LONG time to get it edited. It's a book of 39 columns and two of my favorite news stories I did last year.
People ask me constantly how I come up with ideas for my columns. I'm quick to say that blogging is the best way to generate content, and more importantly it helps you to develop your voice.
I know a lot of seasoned writers who've never really found their voice. Their words are informative, but they don't put the reader in the story.
One of the best books on writing was Stein on Writing. He said the writer builds a relationship with the reader.
I'm not sure how successful I've been, but that's what I strive to do. Any how, The book goes on sale in Amazon.com soon. Additionally, if any of my readers would like a signed copy, click here.
