Potentially, for the first time in my professional life, I took the summer off from — doing things. It was a season of no obligations for anything beyond my 9 to 5, while watching through Netflix in the evenings. Previous to this unusual choice, I was offered placement for a career change at a local college – not teaching – and decided that I needed to focus on one thing at a time for a moment – though I didn’t know what a moment meant at the time. It took months, but I learn
Touch Base Tuesday River Ram Press #InspireWriters #InspireReaders The launch of The Ram Boutique: Volume One is coming fast and we are all working hard to make a masterpiece of an academic journal! It has been such a privilege to feature our 12 Highlighted Authors for the last year and I cannot wait to give them a real build up to their publication date. All the content that you missed and all the content you loved and lost will be back in a beautifully constructed journal.
Can we talk about how I have all these posts going for this blog, but I cannot find the time to settle and finish them between my career and all my beloved projects. Anyway, here’s to goals this week! Which one would you like to see completed? xx Kristin #writing #BlogContributor #writingabook #writer #career #Socialmedia #Publishing #riverrampress #workethic #Shortstory #creativewriting #ghostwriter #personal #lifeexperiences #experience #KristinBergene #press #Business #pro
One day I’ll post an article on my own blog again… until then, here’s another quick post! River Ram Press #InspireWriters #InspireReaders HIYA! This thought occurred to me, as I was snuggling into bed with a new David Sadaris book, that you have to listen to me chat on about River Ram Press when you have no clue who I am or what I am, or what I do. This, of course, might not bother you, but for those who are interested, this post is for you! I am a person who has always been

Nights like this. But one last pint to pour. And, with the glass in her fingers, she moves. Bites her lip, as she grins for the golden beer sparkling in the glass. If it has to end – she slams the pint on the bar, a giggle slips past her lips as the head foams over her hand. He raises his eyebrows. The question’s there, but instead of asking, he hands over his credit card, “And one for yourself, darling.” “Oh, and I need it, sir.” With a wink she spins, finishing the account.
We sit at the wooden bench closest to the boatyard. The congestion of the city a few blocks beyond the back door of The Net can’t reach us here. The gulls, the occasional squeak of boat meeting dock, or groan of a taught rope is the soundtrack to our lunch. So pleased. “If it didn’t take forever to get out here, I’d come every day. We’re already down to forty minutes.” “We’ll get back in time. You’ll make sure of it.” “If they’re quicker than last time.” Jessica pulls out a p
I still write, just for other blogs and other people. 🙂 Come see me at LBF2014! River Ram Press #InspireWriters #InspireReaders It’s not often I have the time to write you all a personal note, but this occasion calls for some special attention. Now that Jessica and I have managed to launch our beloved River Ram Press, we cannot begin to express our appreciation to the supporters of RRP. We started our publishing boutique on a passion for reading, writing and publishing. Ever
For anyone who knows anything about me, it’s evident that I am a very entrepreneurial sort of person. While I may not have an MBA, I always like to have a project to keep my skills fresh and my career progressing. The latest venture I find myself part of is the development of a new boutique publishing company, River Ram Press. I did repost our blog introduction to the world, but for those who missed it: Welcome to the Blog of River Ram Press. I am very excited about this new
It’s the obligatory post isn’t it? The, I can’t believe the time has come and gone and the friends I made, that became my family, are still in my life like we were in The Tun last night and we were dancing on that weird stage, with the chavs staring, and the DJ laughing, as we sipped on cheap sugary cocktails or ciders, and made our way to the dingy Bacchus club to keep on the beat and the drink and the flirt, ’til the pull, post. Or maybe not quite that. But listen world – o
