100 years ago today the guns of World War One were silenced. 100 years…

There’s no smooth way to go from that thought to somehow working in topics like writing and self-publishing except perhaps to wonder how many stories of those who fought will never be told? I cannot imagine how different our lives might be if not for their sacrifices, and the sacrifices of others in other conflicts, and I am grateful.

Five great articles below for you to check out this week.
