Goodbye Traditional, Hello Indie (Part I)

I’ve begun the process of reclaiming my 6 traditionally published books and republishing them myself. I thought it might be useful to document my reasons, particularly for those writers dawdling at this fork in the publishing road, trying to decide which way to go.

I published through a small press, and I don’t want to give the impression that this…

How to Snack Like a Healthy Person in 5 Ways

How To Get Things Done in 10 Ways

I love food. The number one reason I even attempt to work out: I love to eat. And drink. But mostly eat. I’m not too big on desserts, I could give up sugar in a heart beat. It’s the carbs I crave. I want pizzas, burgers, big cheesy loaves of bread, pasta bowls, nachos; I want the big hearty, heavy meals. I also want to eat all day long. All. Day. Long. I’m like a bottomless pit, counting down the time until I can eat next.

So, because of this need, I’m a snacker. Big time snacker.

He took a sip and I adjusted my sitting position so I can be cross-legged on the armchair. Pen poised, I begin the interview with Hammad.

First step


Growing up, I always used to tell my parents that I wanted to be a writer. I was the odd one out in my family, because I loooved reading.Image result for reading book

You would find me curled up in any corner, my face buried in a book. The worst part of reading was that every book ends, but then again if it doesn’t end I would forever be in suspense. A world where books never had an ending would be both a dream and a nightmare for me. My idols were the authors of my favourite books. Not Barbie or the Bratz. I love when you open a new book and step into a parellel universe, you sink into an alternate reality where the author and your imagination paints every scene.
