Creative Finesse -

. . . my special little corner of the world!

Creative Finesse was founded in 2005 with the purpose of providing small business assistance to those seeking such services.  Various creative aspects were included as well, and many were helped during that phase of operations.  I have set aside those resources and most of the prior web site for your use if you are seeking business assistance.  Please visit the "Business Resources" link.  But now things have changed.

Now, Creative Finesse has taken advantage of this change in "atmosphere" to focus more specifically on the aspect of operations nearest and dearest to me.  That would be the creative side - and it seems the possibilities are limitless.  All of this is a blessing indeed.  To be able to do what one loves and was gifted from above to do, well that is a blessing.

Thank you for stopping by Creative Finesse and for appreciating the special talents and qualities that are required to delve into something as adventurous as this.  Adventure is a great word choice here because this is the start of something BIG - and it occurs over and over again.  Each day is new!  Each is exciting!  Having time and space filled to capacity with creativity is akin to childlike play with adult-style rewards.  Blessings indeed.

 

I hope you enjoy your time here and that you find aspects of the creative to which you can contribute, things to share, ways to partake and be a blessing while also hopefully being blessed.  Welcome to Creative Finesse, my little special corner of this great big world!

~ Faith, belief and our testimony can be ridiculed and challenged by others but
   these cannot be taken away.

~ Charity - always thought to begin at home actually begins in our hearts.

~ Giving of ourselves will ultimately benefit us far greater than any thing that we could give.

~ At times our new beginnings are shaky at best but we continue on.

~ It seems that some doors are only opened gently by the harsh slamming of others.

~ Though actions are an important part of intent, words too are often needed.

~ Family - an extension of ourselves whether we like it or not - so love them one and all.

~ Giving thanks in times like these can provide a bottomless resource for those in need.

~ Procrastination doesn't do away with; it makes the need more pressing when the inevitable arrives.

Publishing Division
 
Creative Finesse has undertaken a minor, yet exciting, publishing role with the new novel A Different Light, by Taylor Van Son.  The recently released novel, You Rang!, is also under this publishing umbrella.  Future titles are already in the works.

The publishing process was intriguing and also very educational.  Though many may be intimidated by the thought of this, my Creative Finesse background - and the many faces and hats that includes - allowed me to dive right in.  The design of the book covers for A Different Light & You Rang! are also credited to Creative Finesse.

If you seek assistance with publication of your novel, you may want to check into the wonderful resource I found in Smashwords.  It is an online publishing source for your novels in eBook format.  It has lots of handy information to help make the e-publishing process worry and pain free.  Visit them at www.smashwords.com.  Not to worry, they offer many how-to's and guidelines along with the basic musts and do-not's.  You can also list your eBooks for readers looking to purchase. Follow their founder on twitter at http://twitter.com/markcoker.  If you desire helpful hints, feel free to
