Things I’ve Learned As an Author

By |2019-01-16T13:49:47-06:00March 11th, 2019|Writing Woes|

I’m coming up on my fifth year as a published author. Although it seems like yesterday I began this crazy journey, I know that I’ve grown creatively and professionally. I thought I’d take a blog post to write about all the things I’ve learned as an author. If you have […]

When It Just Happens: Write A Book in a Month

By |2019-03-02T10:29:36-06:00March 4th, 2019|Writing Woes|

In general, I’m not a person who can just write a book in a month. It usually takes me upwards of 3 months to have a book ready for beta readers. However, last April, I experienced a magnificent unicorn-like moment: I wrote 76,000 words in 30 days.

How’d I do it? […]

By |2018-12-13T08:13:15-06:00December 13th, 2018|Writing Woes|

Hey y’all, it’s been a while! I’ve been too busy depositing words into actual books to stop and put words into this blog. My B.

Anywho, I thought it was high time that I share with you guys some decisions I’ve made for 2019. Some will make you cheer, some will […]

2017 in Review

By |2017-12-14T09:17:06-06:00December 18th, 2017|Hot Washes|

As customary, every December, I put together a recap of what I spent, what I made, and what I want to do in the next year. 2017 in review is kind of like a stockholder sharing meeting, as everyone who buys a book is essentially investing in the Sush brand. […]

Writerly Updates – September 2017

By |2017-09-22T07:54:15-05:00September 22nd, 2017|Writing Woes|

*pokes head up from under rock* This thing still on?

Well, I live! Sort of. 2017 has proven to be a lot busier than expected, between starting a house flipping business (check it out on Instagram) and writing an entire trilogy and making a billion calls to my elected officials. […]

2017: The Way Forward

By |2017-03-22T09:04:39-05:00March 6th, 2017|Writing Woes|

The past few years, I’ve been pushing pretty hard. At times, I’d have two or three novels in work, able to release as many as nine projects in 2016. Sadly, all that work hasn’t quite resulted in the kind of money that allows me to live off it (not even […]

End of the Year Report

By |2017-06-27T16:29:04-05:00December 19th, 2016|Business of Indie Publishing Series|

I like to share my End of the Year Report for a few reasons. First, I believe in truth-in-lending. You guys are my stakeholders, and every book you buy, in my opinion, goes toward investing in the business. In the second place, I like sharing my dirty laundry because it’s not unique. […]

The Plot Bunnies

By |2017-03-20T10:59:33-05:00August 24th, 2016|Writing Woes|

It feels like a book takes forever to complete, and also no time at all. Even worse is this new phenomena called finishing a series. I just put the finishing touches on The Union today (well, almost finishing. It’s with my typo checkers right now). And now, the only storyline running through […]

The Economics of a Book Signing

By |2017-03-20T11:01:55-05:00August 22nd, 2016|Business of Indie Publishing Series|

I did a book signing this past weekend at Barnes and Noble. It was my third bookstore signing and second at a Barnes and Noble. Going in, I wasn’t expecting much. The first two signings were abject failures on all objectives. But I thought being home in Pensacola, where my support […]

From Brain to Book (Part 2)

By |2017-03-20T11:05:14-05:00August 15th, 2016|Business of Indie Publishing Series|

Hooray for having a blogging schedule again! Since I’m ramping up to share Lexie (preorder now), I’m dusting off the ol’ blog and trying to be a bit more active about blabbing here. Last week, I talked about my love for planning, Scrivener, and how unpredictable my drafting […]
