A Time to Read…

The pun in the title is on purpose. I’m not slacking at proofreading just yet. I was able to sit down with L.R.W. Lee and participate in her YouTube channel, Book Nerd Paradise. She has new and experienced authors alike give a brief synopsis of our book, tell one of our favorite quotes and pose a trivia question.

Did I also mention I read a portion of my book, A Time to Reap?

Did I also mention I’m giving away two free copies of said book? Just for commenting on the video, you can have a chance at winning!

I spent the past few months combing back through and perfecting the first and second books in the series. It wasn’t because I didn’t love the original, I just wasn’t satisfied with a lot of the open ended portions and inconsistencies I had in my own brain. So, it’s back and better than before! If you have a Kindle copy and haven’t tried it out yet, please go update and I hope to hear from you!

Blog Tour with Zach Chopchinski

Over the weekend, I was able to sit down with a great friend and fellow Indie author of mine, Zach Chopchinski. He is setting up to re-release his first novel, The Curious Tale of Gabriel, on March 25th. Take a few minutes and listen along to see a smidge of our hi-jinx.

Author Bio:

Zachary is 27 and lives in Florida with his lovely wife, Layla. The two of them share a home with their four fur-children.

Zachary has degrees in Criminal Justice and Criminology. He had two short stories and a poem published by Ohio State University. Zachary has always had two passions in his life, criminal justice and writing. After spending nearly 5 years working in security, he decided it was time to give his other passion a chance.

Zachary is very much a family man and when he is not deep in writing, he can be found spending time with his family, playing video games or contemplating his next story idea.

Interview with KT Munson

This last weekend, I was fortunate enough to sit down with Katherine (KT) Munson. She is the author of adventure / fantasy novels and truly a wonderful person. We talk about the nature of getting out there as an Indie, the roads of advice we learn from mistakes and Alaska. Google or the Internet has a vendetta against me it seems because around the 27th minute it takes my internet away. But, we have some great convo beforehand, so please come and check us out!

Then go and look at her newest work:

And her previous:

Interview with CL Coffey

I was able to have a short interview with one of my favorite Indie authors, CL Coffey. Discussing her premise in Louisiana, her inspiration for the story and the angels within. Unfortunately the internet hates me and decided to punish my interview by taking CL away from me. But the interview was fun and you can see me struggling to swim for the last 30 seconds. In the meantime, go check out her works, links are in the graphics below.

Then go and look at her UPCOMING sequel:

A Time to Reap, Conventions, Upcoming, YouTube

Happy Birthday, Jeffrey!!

My very first novel, A Time to Reap, turns one-year old today! In the words of Carter Gabel, “Crapdamnit!” That went by super fast. In a single year, I’ve learned more about writing, publishing and turning out a novel on my own than I ever thought I wanted. Along the way, I also made some kick ass friends, interacted with dozens of other Indie writers and focused on some long term goals to get me to places I want to be.

What’s on the horizon? Well, I have a final novel I am working furiously on trying to crank out. Then I have my very first book convention. It’s one held for our entire state and takes place September 25-27. Anyone within a reasonable driving distance should most certainly go up to Deadwood and come find me!!

Beyond that, I have plans on attending UtopYA 2016 in Nashville, TN next June where I hope to meet some of my most awesome friends and actually share some time face to face.

What else? Well, I do have a fantastic, albeit not author related, series I am taking part in. Cross Country Nerds premiered last night. It’s an hour long commiseration about nerdy topics and all the things we love. My budding friend, Liz Tailor is hosting it on her YouTube channel, I have a playlist (LINKED HERE) where you can come over and subscribe to me so you can follow up or ask questions. It’s a live show, so come over and get a little cred for your questions!

And if you want to save a step, the video is below… but please SUBSCRIBE. I’d like to hit 50 subscribers before the end of the year. Now, go celebrate my book’s birthday and buy a copy to have for your very own. Jeffrey loves seeing his brothers and sisters out there in good homes!! BUY A JEFFREY

Interview with Nina Soden

I was able to have my first returning interview last night! Now, this really is the first live interview we had, but I started my YouTube adventure with her as my guinea pig and somehow I was able to fool her again to coming back. The wonderful Nina Soden stopped by and we discussed her ever-growing collection of novels, the differences of paranormal vs supernatural and then I put her on the spot with a quick game of “name as many movies about…”

She’s a great person and as Indies, we should all try and check out what we’re capable of doing. Our community is large and strong, so let’s keep that mentality going. Check out her page and let her know that I sent you!

Interview with Lizzy Baldwin

This last weekend, after all of the nighttime explosions, BBQ’s and patriotism were past, I woke up to a wonderful Sunday morning. I was able to sit down with my favorite lady across the pond, the wonderful Lizzy Baldwin. I don’t get much interaction with my fellow bloggers, reviewers and authors except on social media, so to have a one-on-one visually was a treat. And not to mention she is one of the nicest people ever. We got to talk about her blogging start up and some of the nuances  with being a reviewer. At the end we play a little game of “guess the saying” US vs. England. Come take a look and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE and check out Lizzy’s page.
