Upcoming Month

Things are busy on the writer's side for me. THE ONE THAT LIVES is in Mark Lawrence's Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off (Yr. 5)! If you're curious, THE ONE THAT LIVES is a supernatural horror / dark fantasy. Pretty gory at parts. Imagine Supernatural (TV show) meets Lord of the Rings. It's also available on Kindle...

#6books6months

I'm cutting this month by month release schedule at six. From here forward, I'll space the remaining six books out for my sanity and my wallet.

Social Media Management: Facebook

These last four weeks, I've run the majority of my publisher's social media pages. At first, I spent 10+ hours a day designing posts, responding to comments, and researching different areas to improve our reach. The most time consuming part? Redesigning all headers and profile images. I'm a big believer in an organization's main page... Continue Reading →
