Kitchen Cravings (Sponsored Post)

Frisket is probably the cutest puppy in the world. Not probably. He is. All of my friends think so, random strangers think so, he's just the best. Quite the little love, too. When Lauren visited, he did his normal "Intruder Alert" bark before realizing who it was, and then he was all, "My friend is here! My friend is here!"


He's going to be celebrating his fourteenth birthday this summer, but being a tiny dog, he'll always be a little baby to me. A cuddly little Ewok when his hair gets too long, with the sweetest eyes in the world.

Yeah. I love my pup, which is why it's important to give him quality food.


A few years back, when I lost my first dog, Charmie to gastric torsion, I read up on how to prevent it in the future, and diet is a big part of it. Smaller dogs like Frisket don't necessarily have to worry about it, but nutrition is always important.

I really do love Blue Buffalo treats. They're real meat and real ingredients, which makes it easier for dogs to digest. There's no corn, wheat, or soy, and no artificial anything.


The Kitchen Cravings Homestyle Dog Treats specifically make for good training rewards. When we were training another dog a few years ago, I took what we learned, and worked with Frisket at home, and he caught on pretty well.

He likes the taste, as well, which is always important. He got some fancy treats for Christmas that unfortunately he doesn't seem to like. People who say dogs will eat anything have obviously never owned a dog.


He's a pretty docile dog most of the time, but sometimes he just needs a little more motivation. These help us rewards him for doing what we ask. Who says you can't teach a dog new tricks?

I'm Moving!

Talk about a long hiatus!

So, things have been happening, or rather, things have been stalling, and I've decided that I need to actually do things in order to achieve what I want to in life. Where I want my writing to go, and what I want to dedicate my blog to.

When I first started MJA I had no idea what I wanted in a blog. I just wanted to write, and I hoped that the readers would follow me. And it took awhile, but you have! But I've been terrible at keeping up with this blog because I was trying to turn it into something that it just couldn't be.

I'm an author, first and foremost, and upon meeting other writers, I've learned so much and want to pass on that education to others, like they've passed on to me.

That said, The Modern Jane Austen isn't going to be getting updates anymore. This is a blog where I wrote about my life, some reviews here and there, and just a few tidbits about my writing journey. But it was mostly a confused mess, IMO, and I've …

September Musings on Writing

Another year has gone by.



I'm 20 days out from my 31st birthday.


I'm 24 days out from embarking on my first cruise to Canada.


I'm thismuch closer to finishing a second manuscript this year.

So, it's shaping up to be a pretty exciting month for me. I'd REALLY like to finish both manuscripts so that I can get to working on their second drafts before NaNoWriMo kicks off in November.

Yes. I'm using my thirties as I should've used my twenties: As someone who wants to write books for a living. Novel concept right?

But honestly. Six years ago when I started at my current job, I was under the illusion that what happened to Amanda Hocking would happen to me. Haha! I was so cute and naive when I was 25.

The last year or so, I've tried really hard to understand what it means to be an independent or self-published author. How you have to put your best work out there, not just the crappy first draft that you were just relieved to finish. That editors want to help yo…

Free Money! 3 Tips For Giving Plasma

Today, I wanted to talk to you about giving Plasma. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood that carries your blood cells all around your body. When you give plasma, they use it to make medication, and it also helps patients who have experienced trauma, have bleeding disorders, and more. I started giving Plasma back in 2007 when gas prices were upwards of $4 a gallon in Missouri, where I was living and needed all the extra money I could get. At the time, I got about $40/donation, but now I give through OctaPharma here in CB, with different pricing (It varies based on your weight).

It hasn't always been easy, though. A few years ago, I was unable to keep giving, and I couldn't figure out why. When I went back to try to raise money for an upcoming vacation the first few times I tried, my protein levels were either too low or at the bare minimum, so I thought I'd share some tips that help.

1. Three hours before you go, start eating something with protein.  I usually give in t…
