When Spirit came out on March 11, 2015, I focused in on marketing and looked for any opportunity I could find to promote the book…

An in-depth review of Legend

Legend’s first and so far only review comes from the person who helped it mature as a beta reader. Does this invalidate the review in any way? No, because I didn’t compensate her for her help or the review in any way. And she didn’t see the final copy until it was published.

What’s in a Brand?

Branding sets companies, organizations, and writers apart from one another. It’s meant to be focused and on point. However, like anything where experts offer advice, sometimes contradictory, it can leave one lost, confused, and running around in circles. In this post, I address some issues that might be affecting my brand.

Writing Bad Things as a Good Person

I’m an animal lover who believes in do no harm to my fellow human being or any creature that I come in contact with, but I write stories that contain violence against man and beast. In this world where darkness and light are a part of life, it would be unrealistic and unbelievable if I didn’t. Even with this stance, I still have a moral dilemma that keeps rearing its head.

Joshua is back for Round 3!

As part of his Maharia (Kaelandur Series, #3) Blog Tour, I have the honor of welcoming back Josh Robertson for a third time. You met him in 2016 when he introduced us to The Hawkhurst Saga and then earlier this year when he re-released Anaerfell, Book 1 in The Blood of Dragons series. He has just released Maharia (Kaelandur Series, Book #3).

A Breakthrough

I haven’t felt this inspired by or connected with my writing for years. Top secret for now, the story I’m working on will make its debut on this website first. It’s that important to the Stars of Heros series.

The Keepers of the Wellsprings Series

To celebrate the release of the fourth book in her Keepers of the Wellsprings series, Missy Sheldrake introduces her series and herself. Through writing and illustrating the series, Missy wanted to tell a story rich with fantasy, but not overly dark or mired with war and violence.

Becoming a Plotser

There are two main camps of writing styles, plotting and pantsing. Seems there needs to be a third that combines the best of both worlds. Let’s call it plotsing. Seems, in a weird way, I’ve been doing it for a while now.

Saturday ramblings and rumblings

Had a lot of my mind thanks to several conversations I’ve had this week, so I decided to do a back-to-back instead of waiting a day or two. Topics range from confusion to focus.

My Titles Come From My Heart

My titles reflect not only my story, but who I am and what the story means to me. Making money would be nice, but I’m not going to sacrifice the integrity of my words for a buck. I write and say what I mean. Packaging myself, or my works up, in some smelly perfume just to appeal to the masses isn’t who I am.

Free Giveaways: Authors really can’t afford them

Experts tell authors to treat their writing like a business for tax purposes and sanity reasons. Consumers expect them to give their works away for free. No business can survive with that ROI model, why should authors have to?

Quiet, but here

A quiet muse and frustrated geek involved in a book release… Just a typical hump day for an author.

Paying it forward and learning about taxes at the same time

Since I learned to see by watching for patterns, I often misjudge the universe’s intentions and compile all the negatives that enter my life into one huge warning or stop sign. That is until it steps in and drops a golden apple on my head.
