I started following Jessica Turner's blog, The Mom Creative, because we have a lot in common so I enjoy reading her stuff. We're both moms who work at home, we're bloggers, and we love taking photos.
I enjoyed following her journey as she published her first book called The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You.
Here's a blurb about it:
For the woman who is doing everything for everyone--except herself: Ever get to the end of the day and realize you did nothing for you? In this practical and liberating book, Jessica N. Turner empowers you to take back the fringe hours--those little pockets of time you already have in your day--in order to make time for your passions and practice self-care.

YOU now get to decide. Everything. What work you do, when you work, where you work, when you'll take time off, and how much you're paid. I believe that you CAN make a living from your passion if you choose to. You can take your loves, your hobbies, and your talents and make money from them online.
