Sophomore Slump

It's been just shy of a year since I've written a blog post and a lot has happened in that time. Honestly, it's probably too much to re-cap fully. Instead, I'd like to talk about one of the reasons I stopped posting as much. After publishing my first book back in  April 2015, I was on… Continue reading Sophomore Slump

Book Launch Party Re-cap

As you probably know from previous posts, I threw my first book launch party for Secret Hunger over the weekend, and I'm happy to say I think it went very well! I mentioned that I had two main fears going into the event. Either nobody showed up or too many people showed up and I planned poorly… Continue reading Book Launch Party Re-cap

Editing Expectations

In this past year, I've made some unlikely observations and learned a few lessons I wasn't expecting to learn. I'll probably save the random observations for another post, but I'd like to share one of the situations I found myself in recently. As I've stated before, I hired an editor for my book. I was… Continue reading Editing Expectations

So Much More Than Writing a Book

During the year I was saving money to quit my job and make the leap towards becoming an author, I did a lot of research. I read articles upon articles, endless blog posts, and I got in touch with some of my favorite authors and asked them for advice. Overall, I tried to be as… Continue reading So Much More Than Writing a Book

A New Adventure

I feel like I should start off with a little introduction post of sorts and explain how I find myself in the middle of one of the biggest adventures of my life. Up until last year I was a stockbroker. Growing up as a child, I never thought I'd be able to say I was a… Continue reading A New Adventure
