    What Karla Wants – Relaunch #Iamwriting

    I made the decision this past week to relaunch What Karla Wants with a paperback edition through Ingram Spark. Talk about a learning curve, the Adobe Indesign software is complicated to learn, but once mastered it will open up a whole new area for me in the world of publishing.   I not only managed to make a cover using the Adobe software but also formatted the interior of the book. It did not come out exactly the way I wanted it, but it does look professional. There are a bunch of templates to choose from, but with more experience, I hope to be able to create my Interior templates.…

    If We Were Having Coffee, I would tell you… 4th of July Holiday was The Hottest

    Good grief! I have longed for summer to start for the past six months but all that heat at once was not on my agenda. We have no Air Conditioning in our home due to the cost of the added electricity on the bill. The fans did run all week long, and they didn’t seem to help much with the high humidity. After taking Monday and Tuesday off and having Wednesday as my holiday, I could not wait to get back to work and find relief from the humidity by hiding at the office and enjoying the perk of office air conditioning. I didn’t want to leave work because the…
