Burn Out

By |2017-03-10T14:30:04-06:00October 26th, 2015|Writing Woes|

When I was all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in 2014, I planned a crazy busy year for 2015. I envisioned myself breezing through the final touches on my house in Virginia, selling it without a problem, wafting to conventions all over the country, making tons of money and…do you see where […]

Warning: Long, writing-related post ahead related to September Updates. Totes boring. Keep reading.

Hey y’all, it’s been a while, no? But you know what they say, no blogging=more writing. And in this case, that’s actually true.

Why You Shouldn’t Self Publish

Okay, so this is a response blog. Some guy over at some website penned a dummy picture about why he believes that no one should ever self-publish their work ever. His thought is that 99% of people who choose self-publishing do so before they are ready. Because people who’ve gone through […]

A little over a year ago, in February of 2014, I decided that I was “finally gonna self-publish that book.” If you look back in the annals of my personal Facebook posts, you’ll see I was dorking around with this idea for a number of years. But at the time, […]

Pensacon Hotwash – Take 2

By |2017-03-07T15:55:30-06:00March 6th, 2015|Hot Washes|

I realized today that the hotwash I posted yesterday wasn’t really a hotwash. It was more a lovely picture-based summary. The hotwashes you crazy kids have come to expect should have lessons learned and all that fun stuff.
