heyelsale is my creative playground where I expose my thoughts, insights and feelings. It is an authentic expression of what life means to me. My main topics revolve between self-growth, travelling and, certainly, food.
I love to write and take photos, so a blog was the perfect solution. Since high school, I accumulated many blogs from Tumblr, Blogspot to WordPress. It was always a way to be creative and to push me to be more healthier, to get out of my comfort zone, etc.
Basically, anything I think people will enjoy reading about.
After I finished writing “Flamenco & the Sitting Cat,” a general fiction novel for adults, I queried high and low for a literary agent and/or a publishing house. 80 queries later have confirmed what any author knows: finding either ain’t easy.
Fortunately, self-publishing gets easier all the time! Best of all, self-publishing doesn’t require agents and traditional publishers.
It does, however, require that I learn to promote my own books. My blog is my exploration of how best to let people sample my writing and sensibility.
I blog mainly to have a place to store my favorite recipes for myself and my family & friends. I also blog about places I visit and restaurants and dishes I experience there. I am an amateur cook and an amateur world traveler and I want to get better at both. I blogged extensively about a trip to Chile I took and still plan to catch up on some recent trips to Argentina and South Africa. I am a wife, a wine store owner, an engineer and mother of three (mostly) grown children. I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, near the shores of Lake Superior.
