Here is a short description of the book:

Ever wonder what the mind of a teenager is like…especially a rebellious, troubled teenager? The poetry in this book, which I wrote in my teen years, honestly shares my thoughts and feelings when I was a teen struggling to live with my parents’ strict rules. Poetry was my “therapy” at the time.

Get a glimpse into the mind and emotions of a distressed teenager. Learn what it’s like to have overprotective parents and emotional turmoil, and be able to connect with someone who does. Whether you are a parent with a struggling teen, or you are that struggling teen, this book will help you get through your challenges.

Here is the cover design:

Adolescent Angst

In the near future, “Adolescent Angst” will also be available in paperback at Barnes & Noble and other online bookstores, and ebook format at Kobo and other ebook retailers and libraries.

I’m looking forward to learning your thoughts about my newest book!

Kindly,

Christine

“Adolescent Angst” is in the Publishing Stage!

I’m so happy to report that “Adolescent Angst” is in the publishing stage! I’m currently finalizing the details with the publishers and I will provide links once the different editions are live. In the meantime, here is a description of the book and the cover:

Ever wonder what the mind of a teenager is like…especially a rebellious, troubled teenager? The poetry in this book, which I wrote in my teen years, honestly shares my thoughts and feelings when I was a teen struggling to live with my parents’ strict rules. Poetry was my “therapy” at the time.

If you are a teenager and wish to connect with someone who is going through the same tough times that you are, this is the book for you. Poems such as: The Chamber, Expression, Authority, and My “Other” Side, reveal my inner-workings as an independence-driven, identity-seeking adolescent.

This book contains twenty-two free-verse poems, written when I was a teen, and a Foreword, Afterword, and About the Poet, written by myself twenty years later.

Get a glimpse into the mind and emotions of a distressed teenager. Learn what it’s like to have overprotective parents and emotional turmoil, and be able to connect with someone who does. Whether you are a parent with a struggling teen, or you are that struggling teen, this book will help you get through your challenges.

New book published – Articles for the Mind

I have good news this week too. I compiled a book of all of the articles I have written and published it. It is called Articles for the Mind. It consists of 58 short articles that are informative and sometimes advising, on the subjects of beauty, health, careers, education, family, pets, financial planning, frugal living, money, food, holidays, home, psychology, self-help, values, and writing. The book is grouped into chapters with those subjects as the chapter titles, so the book is easy to navigate and easy to find what you need. There is also a foreword, an afterword, and an about the author page. The cover is below:

Articles for the Mind

It is published on Amazon (Kindle) and Smashwords. Eventually it will be available at Barnes & Noble (Nook), iBookstore, Sony, and Kobo. It will also eventually be published in print and available as a paperback at Amazon. I’m really happy that all of the valuable information in this book is available to the public. I hope the advice and information helps people.

Thank you for your support. It is because of you that I enjoy publishing books.

A new stop on my writing journey

Hi, my name is Christine; I’m an author and a professional writer, and this is my blog. I love to write and I love to write about it (writing). I enjoy any topic that is related to writing: mechanics, voice, style, freelance writing, publishing, reading, the writing business, editing, research, websites, blogs, etc., etc. 🙂 I love to talk about writing, so I created this blog.

I also created this blog because I am working on the beginnings of a new book, and I wanted a place to give updates on my progress. I’m hoping to write a book about what to expect in the first year of a freelance writing career (I’m coming up on my one year anniversary in April). I feel I have learned a lot (but still have a ways to go!) that I can share with others. Wouldn’t you, if you were thinking about becoming a freelance writer, want to know what to expect in the first year? There is not a book about this out yet, so hopefully I’ll be the first to write it!

I also want a place to let others know about my already-published books. Recently, while trying to help a fellow writer, I ended up helping myself too. I edited the ebook versions of my three published books in order to help my friend create hers (since I hadn’t created one in three years, I thought things might have changed). Well, I took that act of kindness and went above and beyond. I did second editions for two of the books, updated the print books, created brand new epubs and PDFs for all three books, and uploaded previews for all three books in every one of the three formats. Talk about a total renovation, and having gusto! All of my books can be found on my Lulu Spotlight (it is still updating with new changes, but should be correct soon).

I hope you will join me on this wonderful writing journey that I’ve been on for six years so far. I promise to keep you up-to-date.
