Shelby Says… Lyrical musings

Like many people, I have been spending the last week listening to the new Taylor Swift album. Now, let me say, I’ve never been a hard-core fan of Taylor Swift. I’m a huge fan of words (surprising absolutely no one), music and art. But being that I was 11 when her first album came out, […]

Shelby Says: Self-publishing 101: an adventure in writing

This week I had the opportunity to speak to local aspiring authors about self-publishing.

Shelby Says: Accuracy versus entertainment

Recently, my husband decided I had to watch the television show Parks and Recreation. This isn’t unusual, we’ve both made each other sit through shows one of us enjoys. I’ve made him watch the entirety of Full House (and Fuller House), Friends and the Golden Girls, so he deserves to have me watch a show […]

Shelby Says: Feel-good favorite movies

Recently, while my husband Kyle was out with his brother for the day, I turned on some of my favorite movies in the background while I did laundry. I sat down and watched them all while folding laundry. But the actual folding took almost all day so it was a very slow process. With the […]
