Designer’s Edge Ink is all about offering advice, motivation and inspiration for authors – aspiring, in between and established. No matter what stage you are in your career I hope to offer something that you can take away that’s beneficial to you. I’m by no means an expert and when you read what I’m saying always think in aspect of it working for you. What works for you or someone else isn’t always the same. But there are takeaways you can take and maybe use and adapt to yourself. So again I’m no expert. I’m always learning since this industry changes so often that you have to be able to pivot and adapt as needed. I share stuff I’ve experienced and sometimes I might invite others to share too. I’ve had tips, articles, workshops, groups, sharing and all these sort of things for authors in various forms for years but stopped a few years ago but now I’m bringing it back. With that I’m bringing it all into one place.

Designer’s Edge Ink is operated by what I like to call Scribes Unleashed – USA Bestselling Author Taige Crenshaw, USA Bestselling Author McKenna Jeffries and Talia Carmichael – multiple alter egos who is all one person who loves the written word. One viewpoint of this industry from three perspectives based on the alter egos. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on this – author or writer according to what you prefer to use – adventure. There are ups, down, triumphs and failures. At the end of the day now matter what happens it’s about a dreamer who went after what they wanted. It’s about a learner who is always finding something new. It’s about you and offering my advice, motivation and inspiration that can hopefully offer something in this journey we all are in together. And I will reiterate yes for a third time I’m no expert just someone who writes, dreams, learns and wants to share with you!

Designer's Edge Ink - Site

Eventually once I get everything set up there will be blog articles, information on workshops/courses and other things. For now you can check any of my author sites (remember I'm a trio so a party all by myself. LOL) or blogs for Designer's Edge, Writerly, Thursday Thoughts, and Writing to find some of the articles, blogs and information on workshops that'll eventually be on site. They are mixed in with my site and blogging. When the site is up and running they will all be eventually moved here. There is some content here already but still building. At first the articles will be moved from other sites here to the blog and there will be new content too.

FAQ (adding this since I've been asked this before):

Why are you called Designer's Edge Ink?

For years I've used Designer's Edge because in my opinion all authors are designers who use nothing to create a garment of life’s fabric for their characters that you grow to love. We are artists and our medium is words.

Excited to be sharing this with you. Hope you'll join me in this adventure.
