Busy Day

I’ve been busy the last few days. I am updating my 1st book Forever Striking a Crucified Pose. I rushed to self-publish, and I’ve never been satisfied with the way it turned out. Now that I am familiar with formatting after a lot of trials and errors, I am finally happy with the end result. […]

My thoughts on Self-Publishing

I have been writing for as long as I can remember. My first job wasn’t in fast food, but at a newspaper when I was 14 years old. I had an editor, and he was grouchy. I didn’t get paid much, but I loved it. It wasn’t until my late 20’s I began writing fiction. […]

Time to Re-calibrate

In some of my posts I have stated that I made a rookie mistake when self-publishing my book. I don’t know if it was a huge mistake, one that can’t be undone. It is a lesson I am learning though. First, many of the stories I had written in the book Forever Striking a Crucified […]
