Non-conformist Introvert

  This is so much on my mind right now. As some know, I was laid off from my job back in March. I took it pretty well, this being the third time now I’ve been through this. I knew the struggle to find a new job awaited me, but deep down inside somewhere I … Continue reading Non-conformist Introvert

A World Away – Chapter 5 on Wattpad

I see I've missed mentioning when I've posted the last few chapters of this story. It's up to Chapter 5 now on Wattpad, if you want to get caught up. This is a romance, if you're not familiar with it. Also, it is a work-in-progress, so the final product may be slightly different from what … Continue reading A World Away – Chapter 5 on Wattpad

Backing Away

How's everyone doing? Boy, it's been a tough week, hasn't it? It's been, at the very least, anxiety-inducing. So, in order to try to preserve what's left of my sanity, I am beginning a new relationship with social media. I've been fairly active on Twitter since I joined in 2010, which has been both good … Continue reading Backing Away

I Do It My Way

I try to write the best books I possibly can, and with my limited free time to devote to writing, it should be no surprise that it takes me a while to finish even a first draft. Once that's done, the revisions and rewrites begin before I allow beta readers to see it. This flies … Continue reading I Do It My Way

Info Sharing — Editing for Indies

This is just an "info sharing" post. Indie authors (meaning self-published) have long had a very bad reputation for poorly written and poorly edited books. This is why it's next to impossible to get brick-n-mortar bookstores to stock indie titles.  In my quest to improve my own writing I've discovered a couple of free editing … Continue reading Info Sharing — Editing for Indies

Revenants Abroad Paper Proceeding

The good news is: paper copies of Revenants Abroad are back on! I finally caved and contacted my cover artist, Jason Juta, and he graciously said he'd provide me a lighter version of the cover at no charge. I love this guy so hard. I felt bad going back to ask him for yet another … Continue reading Revenants Abroad Paper Proceeding

Going Select, and a Selection

Just to let everyone know, I've pulled Revenants Abroad off Smashwords, so that includes Kobo, and Barnes and Noble, etc (Scribd, Oyster, Flipkart). It was proving to be a dead end. I've chosen instead to go with Amazon's KDP Select because I think it will provided greater visibility and will make the book available via … Continue reading Going Select, and a Selection
