Tomorrow, I’ll be featured as an Emerging Writer at the 2016 Decatur Book Festival. I’m super excited, nervous, scattered-brained, confident and all that other stuff. If you’re in the Atlanta area, come out tomorrow, Sept. 4 at 1:50 pm to get a little passion-fy for the soul! Follow me on YouTube as I vlog my way through this adventure. A new video is up!
My mind has been all over the place, jumping from project to project but one of them is almost ready! Get a sneak peek and let me know what you think.
This post nails what being an indie author means to me…”You are much more likely to find something new and original in the Indie pile.” Damn skippy you will!
I’VE just found a blog post which absolutely sums up the way I feel about writing and Indie publishing. If you want something new, bright and refreshing don’t bother too much about the trad published stuff: in my opinion they just see a formula that has worked in the past and hammer it.
How many times have you read a book and thought: This plot and the characters are awfully similar to something I read not that long ago?

Maybe it wasn’t as simple as I thought it would be, but after a few aggressive moments at my computer and several naps to clear my head, I got it.
But let me tell you getting this moment into 149 words was so hard! There were so many other details I wanted to put in the story but I think you will still be able to “feel” the message. Go check it out and let me know what you think.
FYI, this is under my government name 🙂 And you will need to use your FB to view the site.
There is only one day left to grab “Untraditional” on Kindle for only $0.99! Gift it, keep it for yourself or share it. There’s enough passion to go around!
