Join Jenn McRobbie of The Author Incubator as the interviews author Sara Blanchard on the writing and publishing of her book, Flex Mom: The Secrets of Happy Stay-At-Home Moms.
Sara was able to rely on her experience and expertise in writing her book, although she did not realize this at first. Nevertheless, she nurtured the thought of how she could have done differently when her kids were little instead of being miserable. It was what became the kernel of an idea for the book. She began by starting to see big and how the book would "impact a large number of people" with a cohesive message that she stood for - that parenting is not the burden that it's thought it to be. "Being able to pursue your own dreams while raising your kids does help increase your happiness," she said.

We will also hear readings from a few writers with examples of their own auto biographical work.
A computer geek by day, Donald Firesmith works as a system and software engineer helping the US Government acquire large, complex software-intensive systems. In this guise, he has authored seven technical books, written numerous software- and system-related articles and papers, and spoken at more conferences than he can possibly remember. He is also proud to have been named a Distinguished Engineer by the Association of Computing Machinery, although his pride is tempered somewhat worrying whether the term “distinguished” makes him sound more like a graybeard academic rather than an active engineer whose beard is still more red than gray.
By night and on weekends, his alter ego writes modern paranormal fantasy, apocalyptic science fiction, action and adventure novels and relaxes by handcrafting magic wands from various magical woods and mystical gemstones. His first foray into fiction is the book Magical Wands: A Cornucopia of Wand Lore written under the pen name Wolfrick Ignatius Feuerschmied. He lives in Crafton, Pennsylvania with his wife Becky, his son Dane, and varying numbers of dogs, cats, and birds.

People have been asking me for audio versions of my books, but I don't have the resources necessary to produce them. Therefore, I will be reading my books aloud on half-hour segments for those who want or need an audio version. This is part one of Fallen Angels, my science fiction novel. It was inspired by my husband Philip K. Dick, who often discussed the problems with eugenics. My free account here at blogtalk allows me half an hour for each show, so I will read for half an hour today, then read for another half hour, and so forth, until I have read my entire novel. I hope thatyou enjoy this reading.
