Publishing Milestone

This week I completed another milestone with my publishing. I purchased the ISBN/bar code for my book, Home Should Be Safe: Hope and Help for Domestic Violence Victims. It's already in the Licking County Public Library in Licking County, OH and will soon be in local book stores and on Amazon.com. I've been busy this summer leading two writers' groups and teaching some writing classes.See More

"Hi Kathleen, Congratulations on publishing your first book. That gives you an automatic platform to speak. First, creat a "one sheet" or one page that has a publicity or "head shot" of you, a brief bio and most importantly the…"

Mina Raulston replied to Rafael Perez's discussion starting out writing in the group Write It Forward - REAL Success & Profit for Writers!
"Rafael, What you're describing is writing a memoir. Most people will not be interested in a play by play from birth to now. My suggestion would be to begin by writing about a specific defining event that has made a mark on how you have lived…"

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
My son gave me a copy fo the book, 48 days to the Work You Love for Christmas. I have been a freelance writer for a little over ten years and would like to build that into my full time career.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I work a full time job in a call center to support myself while I go to school online and build my writing
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
My goal is to become a full time freelance writer.
I want to write for a variety of magazines.
I want to publish books.
I would also do business writing to make sure my income is solid and regular.
My goal is to make sure I have a way to earn a living no matter what happens with the economy or a specific industry.
My goal is to get up in the morning and actually like what I do for a living and not just go to a job.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want my writing to be very successful so I can have the freedom to travel and the freedom to visit my kids without having to "ask off" from an employer.
It would be nice at some point to find someone to share my life too but that's not a requirement. I learned a long time ago there are worse things than being single.
I've been single for enough years that even though I was always told I was too independant for my own good I get more independant as time goes on.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I am a communicator. The first thing I do when I am trying to resolve an issue is to begin writing my thoughts and feelings about it.
I am passionate about things that are important to me.
I care about doing a job well.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://www.minaraulston.com
More than one website?
http://minaraulston.wordpress.com
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I am completing a book that I am to submit to Strang Publishing as soon as it's finished. The title is "Home Should Be Safe". It tells about domestic violence and how Christians can make a difference.

Leap of Faith

Well, I made the decision and took the leap of faith. Friday I resigned from my full time job. Today I began my full time work as a writer/editor/public speaker. I created my first blog. Here is the link. Please sign up for the RSS feed so you can follow my updates.
