Coffee Time Romance Staffer – Tory

You know them, you love them as much as we do! Welcome the Coffee Time Romance Staffers!
So we asked them some questions on how they take care of themselves.

Visit with the Coffee Time Staffers August 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 24th.

Coffee Time Romance Staffer - Tory1. Are you glued to technology and if so, what do you do to disconnect?

Believe it or not I do housework to disconnect

2. What do you do to unwind?

Take a nap or have a glass of wine before bed

3. Anything special you do to treat yourself?

Get a pedi and a haircut

4. Do you have a hobby that isn’t involved in what you do each day? (Painting, gardening, knitting, biking, etc)

Writing is my hobby

5. Everyone is concerned about being healthy while working on a computer, what do you do to try and improve your health?

Again, I have to fall back on housework.  I've always liked cleaning and find it relaxing, plus it gets me moving. I don't have to do it, I'm retired and live with my daughter and her family but I clean the kitchen every day, load and unload the dish washer, I also keep the bathroom I share with my grandchildren clean, do the laundry and clean my part of the house every day.

6. While working is there anything special you do help ease your mental stress or physical aches?

I'm retired and stress free

7. What advice would you want to give others if you could?

Treat people the way you want to be treated.

#PMInc 11th Anniversary Guest Author: Holly Bargo

Category:#PMInc 11th Anniversary,Anniversary,Events,Guest Author,Guest Blogger,Personalized Marketing Inc Tags : 

Holly Bargo (aka Karen Smith) Work-life balance remains an illusion for many, even those who are self-employed. And for authors. The pressure to add to the bank account, land that next client, write the next book pounds at us day and night.

That’s one reason authors panic when they hit the dreaded writer’s block.

Some push through the block, forcing words to flow onto the page and knowing that those words just suck. So, on top of creative stoppage the writer also suffers from acute disappointment in herself. Or himself.

Let’s add to that the normal and often overwhelming demands of family. Some of us have livestock. Day jobs. More demands. It’s enough to crack a superhero, right?

Along with the illusion of work-life balance, career gurus stress the importance of self-care: those actions we take to nourish our spirits and relax our minds and bodies so we can take care of all the myriad obligations for which we’re responsible.

So, what do I do?

If I’m lucky, I go horseback riding. Don’t get me wrong: I’ve got a whole sack of fear issues regarding horses. However, I keep reminding myself that this is fun. Even when the horse is a restive, jigging, prancing, high-strung barrel of TNT with the fuse lit, I usually end the ride feeling relaxed and exhilarated—odd to feel those distinctly opposite emotions at the same time. But I never ride alone, because that’s a great way to get badly hurt and … you know … fear issues.

I’m not often lucky, so I read instead. Or I have a glass (or two) of whatever adult beverage I have on hand that appeals to me. Alcohol can take the edge off a rotten day, but it’s too easy for me to tip the scales from “light buzz” to “sloppy drunk.” Other times I watch TV, usually a sappy, fluffy romance on Netflix or something on PBS. I enjoy travel shows.

Naps are good, too. Nothing quite beats a long, hard nap, even if I wake feeling groggy and lethargic. There’s something so indulgent about taking a midday nap that resisting its appeal is difficult.

What I don’t do is what all the experts recommend: exercise. Blech.

Take a walk “in nature?” I live on a farm. “Nature” at this time of year means bugs: mosquitoes, horseflies, bees, wasps, spiders. Heat and humidity so thick and heavy that I almost need gills to breathe and “swamp ass” becomes a real concern above and below the waist. No thanks. That’s not relaxing, it’s oppressive and creepy and just plain icky.

Should I learn something new? When I’m drained of energy and inspiration, the last thing I want to do is expend energy and mental effort on something I’m don’t know how to do. No thanks.

Taking care of me means doing what I want when I want how I want and where I want. Seldom do I enjoy such a confluence of conditions. In the meantime, I’ll have drink and watch a movie. Or take a nap.


The Eagle at Dawn by Holly Bargo

Rachel's brother uses her as collateral to settle a debt with an outlaw motorcycle gang. She flees to a local bar and pleads with a darkly handsome stranger to help her. His help results in homicide. When eagle shifter Diego's vacation is interrupted by the innocent young woman he recognizes as his mate, he flees with her across national borders because she's his and he's not letting her go.

Having essentially swapped one captor for another, Rachel knows the dashing, sexy Spaniard is keeping secrets from her. He showers her with kindness and generosity in exchange for her obedience. Diego's control over her and his secrets elicit her distrust and resentment.

When freedom beckons, Rachel answers its call; however, freedom brings hardship and indignity. Will she return to the controlling alpha male who stirs her blood or cling stubbornly to her freedom?

Taking Care Of You: ME Time.

Being a single mom during the week and working with various authors, my day can be hectic. Not to mention my week.  My husband works out of town and only home on the weekends.  I try to leave those days for family time.  We have 5 children ranging from 8 to 23. The two oldest are out on their own which helps but we also have two grandchildren with two on the way.

During the week, after getting the kids off to school, I come back and get the house straightened up and laundry going.  Next, I sit down at the computer and get to work helping authors.  Some days are better than others depending on meetings, new releases, cover reveals, blog tours, parties - you get the point.  To make it even more interesting I started working with New Degree Press and helping 15 college kids with editing their books and helping them get ready to publish in December.

Stress can get to me pretty darn quickly if I let it. I try to get most work done while boys are at school so I can help with homework and snacks.  It hardly happens. I end up going right back to work after their time.  Thankfully my boys understand and try and help me as much as they can with little things around the house.

To help me unwind and de-stress I read. I love reading and it is nice to let myself go into another time or place.  I forget what bothered me or the hard work I have put in.  When the boys go to bed usually around 9 to 9:30 pm that is ME time.   I look forward to it. I can relax and let my mind go or at least I try to.  Some days are hard when I am waiting on a response from someone or I can’t turn my thoughts off.  Reading comes in pretty handy.  I have to take care of me to take care of my family.


About Babs

There is a lot about me most people do not know.  I am very shy until I get to know someone.  I do not like crowds as they scare me and always have.  I am more of a loner than anything.  I have been through a lot in my life, but I came out stronger than ever.  I have survived cancer when I was younger, lost two babies Morgan and Kincaid, my dear angels, watched my husband fight his cancer, and him losing sight in his right eye, to taking care of us all.  I would not change a thing.  I adore my life and my family.

 I love to write.  I have written 2 novellas  and a children’s book in hopes of getting them published.  One of these days I hope that dream will come true.  I did have one poem published a few years ago.  One of  the novellas is a mystery of course.  The other one is a romance/mystery about one of Jane Austen’s characters.  How could anyone think otherwise?  You will have to stay tuned as I am working on my 3rd novel which is a sequel to the first book I wrote.  You can click on the my regular website section and see what they are all about.

I also enjoy working on my crafts, puzzles, cooking, baking, gardening along with my reading and writing of course.

If you haven’t figured it out I am a big fan of Jane Austen.

#PMInc 11th Anniversary Guest Author:
Pamela S Thibodeaux

When I was invited to write for Personalized Marketing Inc’s blog, I wondered what on earth could I say that you haven’t already heard or, for that matter, something I haven’t already said and/or written about. So I thought I’d just recap some of my most valuable writing advice. Here goes….

Read. Read extensively in your genre and out. Take note of phrases & descriptions that capture your imagination or make your heart sing and mind race. I’ve yet to meet a writer who isn’t an avid reader!

Write. Doesn’t matter if it’s daily, weekly, or 2-3 days a month, just make time to write consistently. Don’t worry if it’s dribble to begin with just write. Whether you’re at a desk, the kitchen table, the library, or a coffee shop, get in the habit of sitting in your writing space and putting words on paper (or computer, or notebook, or i-pad)…You get my drift. Forget the rules and write the book you want to read! You can always check for publisher guidelines and edit/revise your project to fit, but those first drafts can be whatever you want them to be!

Edit. Most projects need a minimum of 3 edits…. Initial where you layer in descriptions, the five senses, etc. Second pass where you check for plot holes and pacing.  Third round where you check for grammar, punctuation, etc. Make sure you take at least two weeks to a month between edits! If you don’t, chances are you’ll miss mistakes that could cost you a contract or precious time in edits after the contract. While you’re letting this one cool, start another! Keep several projects in the works at all times so you don’t worry this one to death.

Query/Submit. At some point you’ve got to turn that baby loose. Even if your initial submission is to a critique partner or group, don’t let fear stop you from getting the feedback necessary to help you grow as a writer and produce the best work you can. Read the last two sentences above – they apply here too. Keep writing while you wait to hear back from your submission.

Revise, Re-submit, Resale. This applies mostly to articles and essays but sometimes you can even revise/rewrite a story and sell it elsewhere. Make sure you abide by any current or previous contract limitations and if someone doesn’t normally take reprints, be sure to let them know the extent of changes you’ve made that add a whole new twist to the version you’re querying about or submitting to them.

Promote. Okay you’ve sold a book or two or a dozen articles. There will be no (or very few) sales, reviews, or new opportunities, if you don’t let people know! Set up a website, Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon Author Page. Spend a few hours a week building your fan base and readership. When you do a book signing or speaking engagement, ask for the name and address (email too) of everyone who buys a book! This is your readership. Ask to add them to your mailing/newsletter list. Don’t bombard them but keep in touch on a regular basis, whether that is monthly, quarterly or even annually.

These tips and hints apply to the craft of writing but here are a few more….

Keep good records. Writing is a business and even unpublished authors can claim business expenses such as office supplies, ink, business cards, etc. Check with a CPA or tax preparer and don’t miss out on these valuable deductions especially when you begin to make money!

Take Care of Yourself. Sometimes life throws us a curve ball or hand grenade and we have a hard time focusing on writing. Don’t worry about your career at this point. Take the time you need to recover and/or regroup and start over. Real writers never quit. We may take an extended leave of absence but at some point, we always return to our passion.

And last but certainly not least…

Don’t Quit! Writing is a gift and a talent given to you by God. Don’t hide your gift or bury your talent.

Blurb: Rancher Craig Harris and veterinarian Tamera Collins clash from the moment they meet.  Innocence is pitted against arrogance as tempers rise and passions ignite to form a love as pure as the finest gold, fresh from the crucible and as strong as steel.  Thrown together amid tragedy and unsated passion, Tamera and Craig share a strong attraction that neither accepts as the first stages of love. Torn between desire and dislike, they must make peace with their pasts and God in order to open up to the love blossoming between them.  It is a love that nothing can destroy when they come to understand that only when hearts are tempered, minds are opened and wills are softened can man discern the will of God for his life.

Taking Care Of You: Self-Love.

Hello out there in the ethereal realm I call the internet. My name is Raven Starr and I am so pleased to be able to share how and why I take care of myself. I personally think we should all learn self-love and how wonderful it is to take care of yourself. Life is full of stress and even though we all try to grin and bear it, it builds with each passing day. A few years back I was fighting chronic pain, I had so many doctors and all they wanted to do was push pills down my throat, and at first I agreed because you know I’m not a doctor, but the drugs never made me feel better. I was lost in a cycle of pain and depression with no visible way out.  On the outside, I looked healthy but it’s totally different on the inside. It would bother me when people would stare at me with suspicion in their eyes it all made me feel terrible about myself.

Our culture has been built upon on our faces, just because we can smile doesn’t mean we always want to. So, for years I thought if I was smiling, I was happy or seemed to, but I wasn’t. I had to learn to love me on the inside. Figuring out how to self-love yourself from a place of love and not ego takes a strength that will test you at every turn.

One day when I woke up feeling the same pain, I decided not to hide it but to deal with it. Not everything that I’ve gone through in my life has been physical I suffer from some intense mental trauma as well, but instead of taking a lot of pills I decided to do what I felt was best for me. Little by little I started to learn how to do things for myself like I would buy some face treatments and new nail polish and have a spa day. Or I would order something new, believe me it took a long time to accept the fact I deserved to do something for myself.

What do you indulge in?

There are so many options to choose from when thinking about doing special for yourself doesn’t have to cost money. I love walking in nature, when I’m outside listening to the birds I feel at peace. I take my shoes off and allow the earth’s energies surge from the soles of my feet. My point is there’s nothing wrong with taking care of yourself inside and out and do it for you because you deserve it.


I want to thank, Dee, for thinking about me to guest blog here today and please check out my latest book, ‘Daughters of the Night’ by Raven Starr on Amazon. Thanks again.


‘Daughters of the Night’ by Raven Starr


Here is a story of three. Sisters of mythology are thee. From one story to the last enjoy the words and the atmosphere, in the dark, these three do watch, so be careful of the sins you create of death will be your fate.


"Each story is like a surprisingly twisted Chinese meal, with each story is like a succulent bite into the profound and morbid that both pleases and leaves you hungry for the next story. A set of three stories that you may want to consume again and again, just not in a dark room." 5 stars

Taking Care of You

Category:#PMInc 11th Anniversary,Articles By Dee Carver,Dee Carver,Events,Personalized Marketing Inc Tags : 

Welcome to the Personalized Marketing Inc 11 Year Anniversary Blog Event! This month the blogs are going to focus primarily on what we do to take care of ourselves or suggestions on how to take care of you. Personalized Marketing Inc is focused on providing services that are tailored to our clients needs and we also understand the struggles of trying to work, promote, market, manage emails and all the lovely things that go along with managing an online presence. So, it only seemed appropriate that the topic for the month was about ‘Taking Care of You’.

When it comes to taking care of me, I have found the best way is to disconnect is by going outside and working in my yard or garden. I do not have any electronic devices with me when I go out to work, just music in my ears when alone or my family with me. Digging in the dirt, pulling weeds, and taking care of the yard brings pride true and yes some definite aches but it also gives me exercise and tactile sensory memories. I often remember doing things as a child while working out there and I hope that when I get older and feel the dirt in my hands, I will remember this as well.

Another way I like to take care of me is by spending time with my family, taking walks, listening to music and working on my home. Oddly enough my method of disconnecting is by being physical and not having technical devices in my hands or in my pockets. It does literally mean disconnecting from work and school both. Doing something that gets the body moving and the heart pumping.


Taking care of you does not have to be something expensive or a vacation (which I love going and watching the water…) somewhere. It can be something simple and even free, like dirt. It is just a time for you to disconnect from work and spend time recharging your internal batteries.

New Blogs Each Week

A new blog will be posted Wednesday and Friday of each week during the month of August.

#PMInc 11 Years Anniversary!

Category:#PMInc 11th Anniversary,Dee Carver,Guest Author,Guest Blogger,Personalized Marketing Inc,PM Inc Tags : 


As you may have noticed our blog is a couple of days early… that’s because tomorrow is August 1st and we are turning 11 years! Wow can you believe it has already been 11 years since Personalized Marketing Inc opened it’s doors? I know I can’t! It has been a wild and amazing journey and one that I am very blessed to be a part of.

It seems like not long ago that my friend Raven suggested offering what I was doing for friends as paid services. In the beginning we were known as Personalized Marketing & Promotions, (kind of redundant, I know). Then later after a bit more SEO and little less wordiness, promotions was dropped, Excerpts & Promotions Facebook Page was created and the company became Personalized Marketing Inc.



Exciting New Changes

This year has marked a few different changes for our Anniversary/Birthday Event …We have also opened our blog this year to guest authors. We have invited a few of our friends to come in and share their thoughts on Taking Care Of You, which as you know has been a topic of ours a lot as of late. So, make sure to check both our main site and blogger for these extraordinary guests.

A new blog will be posted Wednesday and Friday of each week during the month of August.
#PMInc's 11th Anniversary Blogs

We also have a new domain name coming https://pminc.tech (We love it! Don’t you!). The decision came about to match the company’s hashtag #PMInc, which if you Google it, you can find pretty much everywhere. Good job on branding the hashtag but the abbreviation required a domain name to match. We are super excited to start sharing it everywhere, stay tuned for the exciting announcement.

We love our clients and would not be here without them, as a thank you we offer a 10% client referral bonus. This year’s 11% discount is good for new items but also renewals as well. You can either email us with the Coupon Code (#PMInc 11th Anniversary) or use the form with the code conveniently added for you.

Pamela S Thibodeaux

Category:Anniversary,Guest Author,Personalized Marketing Inc,PM Inc Tags : 

Pamela, welcome to PM Inc's Blogger, we are happy to have you here. Please tell us a little about yourself?

Thank you so much for having me!

I am a mother, grandmother and in my day job, a Licensed Insurance Agent. I sell home, life and Medicare Insurance. I’ve been writing for nearly 40 yrs. and published for 20+.

What do you find is the hardest part about writing and promoting yourself?
Finding the time to write consistently and the money to market/promote effectively.

What do you do to unwind? 

READ. Mostly. I also like to camp and fish, walk and dance. Sit with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and bask in nature – whether that is at home, on a beach or in the mountains. My favorite place in the whole world to visit is Bandera, Texas.

How do you make time for 'You'?

By doing those things mentioned above, even if that means leaving the computer behind – which I have been known to do for a long weekend.

I noticed that you are an author, editor, promotions expert, speaker and life coach, how do you keep up with yourself? 

Who says I do? LOL! Seriously the thing that helps me juggle everything is being organized. I have a monthly planner & a ‘To Do’ pad on my desk and I use them  faithfully!

Do you enjoy writing articles or books more?
I simply enjoy writing. Articles for a local publication are quick, easy and pay well. Short stories are also quick and relatively easy to write but not always quick to sell. I write the blog posts for the company I work for. I just love to write! Give me a topic or an interview candidate and I enjoy gathering what I need and presenting it in a fun yet informative way.

Do you have a preferred genre?
I write Edgy Inspirational but read just about anything Romance. I also read a lot of spiritual non-fiction.

Audio books, love them or hate them? Do you feel that they do your stories justice? 

I enjoy audio books on occasion. If done well, an audio book is the perfect way to reach broader audiences. I recently had my first published novel, Tempered Hearts released in audio and I’m as thrilled with it as I am with any new book or any previously published work I re-release in a new venue. Audio books are beginning to garner larger and larger pieces of the overall publishing pie so I would never disparage an author having their book(s) done in audio.

Pamela, I personally must say how impressed I am at the mention of God and Blessings on both your site and emails. Did you have a personal experience you wanted to share?

I began writing in 1982 – romance; plain and simple romance. In 1989 I recommitted my life to Christ and committed my writing to Him. My faith is what has pulled me through some of the toughest times in my life, including my husband’s death 10 yrs. ago. I am nothing without my faith….well I wouldn’t say ‘nothing’ but so much stronger, more patient and more loving when I stay connected to the source of Love – for me that’s God.

Thank you once again for being here with us today and we look forward to having you back during the month long 11th Anniversary Celebration here at Personalized Marketing Inc. 

Thank you so much for having me and CONGRATULATIONS on your 11-year Anniversary! I certainly wish you the best of luck and God’s blessings for another successful 11 yrs and many more after that!

Behind the Scenes with Cindy

Category:Cindy W,Consultants,Manager,Personalized Marketing Inc,PM Inc Tags : 

Dee decided to take a break for this blog so we figured I would pop in and talk to you. Who’s this? You may have read Dee talking about her manager, Cindy. That’s ME! I joined Personalized Marketing Inc. a little over a year and a half ago and it’s been a great experience expanding my horizons. So, here is a little about what I have been doing.

Knowing your audience/client, what’s trending, and what sells are a few of your favorite things in marketing yourself. Dee and I worked together to revisit these 3 aspects regularly to keep our clients as well as ourselves up to date in the market. Our first huge project was giving the company a new look in redoing the website. It took a lot of ‘what do we want’ along with ‘what does our audience expect’ to create the look you see today. Rolling it out was well worth all fun and hard work put into it.

Finding images that speak of you and your company are not always easy and you want to avoid using images that tend to pop up all over the internet. Yes, you can use some since there are ways to search images, but you need a staple image that speaks YOU! The cover image on Personalized Marketing Inc’s site is just that. The image I speak of is the mobile phone with the chess pieces – for us it speaks strategy, mobility and flexibility. Which brings me to other things I have been doing with the company – Digital Art. That cover image was done by me. Something I love to dabble in but finding myself doing more of here. (Dee is fighting spreadsheets on her own, well for now anyway)

If a client has specific requests, I am more then willing to see what I can do to find what they need. If it can’t be found? I will create it if I can. Currently I am working on a site with such a request that I even took a trip to the beach to capture some needed images and video.

Recently, we advised a client that with the latest trends of her books, she may want to consider updating her covers on a series she has done well with. I was excited when she asked me to do them. Taking those who have purchased the book in the past, the category the books where trending in, and what other like books where hot sellers we came up with a plan and they came out great.


Oh, and I don’t stop there. Dee knows just how much I love to read. Seriously, I do love reading. My specialty in reading that I am a word by word reader. If there is a mistake, I will trip over it. So, now I have been doing editing work for the company – from websites, to posts, to books.

As you can see Personalized Marketing Inc is very versatile. We strive to know our clients and their audience, keep watch and assist above and beyond to keep them trending, and we work together to market you.

Gardening? Yes, Please! #MFRWauthor

Category:Articles By Dee Carver,Dee Carver,Real Marketing for Organic Growth Tags : 

Hi Everyone! I am new to the writing prompts but have been avidly writing on marketing advice on this blog for a few years now. Recently La Roe’s my first novel was re-released, and we are currently working on the second book Fay’s Wish. As someone who works in marketing, I love the term organic growth, as a new homeowner and the granddaughter of a farmer, I love gardening, this year I get to do both!

This season we started our first garden in my new home and though tilling the soil was hard work, the rewards are so worth it. The vegetables have been planted and yesterday we picked our first two tomatoes. We also seem to have some sort of berry bush in the yard as well. Not sure yet what it is, reminds me of maybe a blackberry or raspberry gone wild so will just have to wait and see.


While waiting for time to plant, we went out and found the seeds we wanted, mapped out the area, and then talked about how fun it was going to be. We also found a couple of rose bushes already on the property, so began trimming on them some, and just basically got ready for the upcoming season. Now that the season is on us, each day my granddaughters and I go out with our little buckets and water the garden. They love being helpful, plus it gives them a lifelong memory and skill that they can one day pass along to their grandchildren. We of course also planted a flower bed for them as well, which all three granddaughters were there to help plant their own seeds, should turn into a lovely colorful spot.


Being a geek, I spend a lot of time on the computer and all through the winter and early spring months I waited anxiously to start working on the garden. The idea of going out, getting dirt under my nails, disconnecting from everything, just sounded like heaven to me and it has been. I love doing what I do. I love helping others with their websites, building organic growth, reaching new levels, but I also am a tomboy at heart too. So, throwing on a pair of old sneakers, blue jeans (because well mowing grass and getting on your knees at my age can be tricky) and just soaking up some sun, is some of the most therapeutic moments to my day. I am sleeping better at night, I am getting a chance to unwind and yes taking care of a garden, even one small as mine, can be considered work but it is enjoyable work and one that I am cherishing every moment of.
