I can do this at work during downtime, … Continue reading Writing Goals for 2020

My Current Projects

Given that I just finished writing the first draft of a manuscript, I figured I'd update you on my current projects. I always need to have things to keep me busy.

Part of my theme word for the year has to do with focusing on the details, … Continue reading Last Read-Through is Complete

Publishing a Story Later this Month

I published many stories last year, and I learned a lot from doing so. While still not perfect, my book cover and graphic design skills have gotten better. I know more about self-promotion. And, I realized just how much time and patience it takes to go through the process of editing, publishing, and promoting a … Continue reading Publishing a Story Later this Month
