From my dear friend, Jaye Manus, the Goddess of Formatting.
I know, I know, I haven’t posted in ages. I’ve been very busy. Anyone want to know how to scan and restore foreign edition paperbacks and turn them into ebooks and print books without being able to understand the words? *crickets* No? Okay, on to the subject at hand.
After years of cleaning and processing MS Word docs, and posting tips and tricks and hacks for using Microsoft Office Word for writing and self-publishing, and answering a lot of emails about problems with Word, I finally compiled that hard-earned knowledge into a book.
Here’s an excerpt from the Introduction:
Word is an excellent word processor, one of the most powerful on the market. All that power comes with a price: Where the act of composing fiction or nonfiction is a simple process (in technical terms) Word is complicated. It’s right there in the name itself: Microsoft Office Word. It’s a

was able to get a decent photo of our home with the Bridgers in the background.
Now that’s what I call purdy!

XOXO! Be well! Julia
An eagle or a hawk?

Here she is~
She came on her due date. Her mommy had the easiest pregnancy in history- and labor. We are so grateful and so very blessed. Dylan Rose A. 7′ 11″. We all forgot to ask how long she is. 🙂
The sale of our home and the move could have gone smoother but one can’t have everything, right? Some things must go wrong. That’s life.
We love our new home in Montana. It’s beautiful. It has amazing views on all sides. The dog loves his full half acre? Three quarters of an acre? Not entire sure. But he stays outside all day long, just enjoying his view through the invisible fence. He can watch sand hill cranes and cows and eagles and deer and super cute bunnies. In Napa Jake rarely wanted to be outside without us and he was territorial about his yard. Here, his yard is just part of the vast open countryside. He seldom barks for any reason. He’s in awe!

So friends, it’s been a challenging yet rewarding year thus far. I’ll try to be more available. (Ha!)
P.S. Do we miss California? Nah-uh. Not one bit.
