Never What it Seems by Diane Martin

Never What it Seems is the story of Dee Wellington and AJ Madison, two women who were born in Chicago, and much like the city; their lives are anything, but ordinary. Dee grew up in a dysfunctional household that by today’s standards would be considered completely ‘normal’. Trying to cope with life’s complexities, Dee contributes all of life’s changes to God’s will. Throughout the changes in her life, she resists the urge to disrupt the balance of things unless she really has to. On the other hand, there is AJ Madison who is a rambunctious, intelligent, and outgoing character who lives by her own standards and believes that you get what you give. Both, Dee and AJ grew-up trying to maneuver in systems created to breakdown the human spirit. Readers will find a familiarity in their struggles, their desires, and their will to overcome.

Tips on Using Random Word Blends for Choosing the Right Business Name

Add a little research to your process. Venture into words from other languages and try some random blends. Generate intrigue and curiosity. If interesting enough, some will wonder and others will even ask, “Where did you get your name from or what’s the inspiration behind your name?” Be sure to choose a name with substance; a name that when translated in your native language, sounds magnificent, has valued meaning, or essence. For example, Savvy Writer in Spanish is Savvy Escritor, in Turkish is Anlayışlı Writer, in Latin is Writer Xenium and these are just to name a few for ideas. Google Translator ( is a great tool for testing random words in other languages.

Hi Diane,
I thought I'd write to you again. I wanted to ask you, who did you trust to get your books published? I have written a book about stalking, something that happened to me on the Internet. The story just unfolded on paper. I guess it was therapy for me to get something out. Anyway I would like to get it edited and published, but I don't know where to start. Pls can you give me a few pointers? I would be greatful. I am sure this book hits home to many people who has or going through being stalked. I did get the story copyrighted.

And do you have any books in Barnes and Nobel? I 'd love to read them.

Yes Diane, it's finding the time to write.
