Brand new

Brand new – me!

Summer time can give you lots of topics to write about, or non. Well, I got unfortunately – non, and I’m going to treat it as a challenge!

As you can see (if you have visited my blog before) I made a few changes, both visual and content. Some categories were removed, some changed place, and also you can find few new one. Hope it will make my website more user friendly.

I’m going to keep up with Motivation Monday, in a brand new form of rules to reach your own happiness (First two posts can be found HERE and HERE), I will not give up on travel topics (including cooking from places all around the world) and self-publisher tips, but I’m gonna add my own reviews of books, tv series and movies. Nope, it does not mean it will be connected with fresh – new coming titles (ok, maybe a little), but also with the things which came into my hands in the last days – old one too.

There will be more content from my point of view, less boring facts, which can be found in every book.

So I hope you will enjoy new, refreshed idea of Monika’s Journey. Com!

It was too late for doubts, though. She wouldn’t get cold feet at the last minute, after all. On the other hand, the perspective of getting on the first plane and going back was very tempting.

She took a deep breath and started to walk. The glass door opened before her, as if touched by a magic wand. Waves of heat and humid air hit her. Still walking, she closed her eyes and inhaled with pleasure the long forgotten smell of Turkey.

The memories of hot days and sultry nights, crazy romances and unrequited love, happy moments spent with friends and nights she cried. Here she lived life to the full and felt all the feelings available to humans. Now all those feelings again became as real as if she had felt them the day before, and not five years ago.

We start from the basics… what is self-publishing?

As we can read in Wikipedia.org – “Self-publishing is the publication of any book or other media by the author of the work, without the involvement of an established third-party publisher.”
Self-publishing can make your dreams come true and let you have your own ebook existing on the book market.

According to statistics: Nisches of self-published books are growing every day, while publishing houses try to reduce number of released titles.
