Dealing with writer’s block… or even worse, the opposite

Is there anything worse than writer’s block? In my mind, yes, there is.  I’ve been suffering from it for a few years now, though some people might scoff at the notion of “suffering”.  My problem is actually the opposite of writer’s block, it’s a veritable writer’s flood. When I first decided to become a writer, […]

Self Publishing your novel tip #1 – whatever you do, don’t listen to me

Still here?  Don’t follow direction very well, huh? Honestly, I’m starting this post not having a clue how I’m going to finish.  In that way, it’s very unlike how I write, which is exceedingly outline-based. I am not a “seat of the pants” writer by any stretch. Well, apparently, unless you count blog posts. At […]

NaNoWriMo 2015

NaNoWriMo 2016 is almost here and I have no idea what I’m doing

While I’m a big fan of writing all year round, not just in November, I can’t pretend that NanoWriMo didn’t play a role in my final surge into becoming a self-published author. It was NanoWriMo 2013 that  finally kicked my ass into putting my first novel in its place, and it was NanoWriMo 2014 that […]

Is this thing on?

During the month of October, Amazon celebrates Self-Published Independent Authors…check out Powered By Indie to explore the rich world of self publishing!

If you self publish, you should read this immediately

Digital Book World posted an interview today with Hugh Howey, a hugely successful independent author who has achieved New York Times best seller status, and he’s got a lot to say about self-publishing vs. traditional publishing. It’s a fantastic article. Of course, with Howey being the very successful independent author that he is, most of […]

Latest G.I. Joe: Kindle Worlds novella has been published!

I first got my start as an author writing G.I. Joe novels and novellas for Amazon’s Kindle Worlds platform, a great licensing agreement which allows writers to write stories based in licensed universes, including G.I. Joe! I’ve got three novels and a novella published already, and today my second novella has been published as well! […]

Operation: Harvest Book Three is officially in progress

In truth, I’ve been working on book three of the Operation: Harvest trilogy off and on for nearly a year, but there feels like a distinct difference between collecting all of my thoughts into a handful of disjointed Google Docs files, and actually laying those ideas down on paper, in a certain sequence in order […]
