A Time to Reap, YouTube

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!


New Author ALERT!

Before I get to it, today marks my second WordPress anniversary! Woohoo!! Where’s the confetti and cake?? And… as far as presents, I have one for you instead. I sat down with author of the newly released Steampunk Dystopian novel, The Cogsmith’s Daughter, Kate M. Colby. We had a little talk about her processes, ideas and where it all came from. I hope you have a chance to listen and/or watch.

Off to Claim Mexico for My Own

Although I think it might have a claim staked to it, I’m excited to flee the safety of my home in the Black Hills to the sun-filled beaches of the Baja peninsula. 

I’ll be missing all you all, but I’ll have liquor and the sunshine to fill your spot for a few days, I’ll try and cope. 

I’ll be posting pics on my Instagram: @Jonas605 if anyone wants to join me. I’ll be off the other social media altogether. Shutting down notifications and everything else. I have 6 books to see about getting through and hopefully I’ll be tan and well-read when I return! 

Until I return…have a great week everyone!!

Murder in the 1st or 3rd Person

As readers and writers, we will inevitably witness death. In some genres, it lurks behind any if not every corner. When done correctly, it grips the story and gives it a push in a certain direction. Death creates emotion and because of that, I want to know what sparked the most memorable.

Tell me what death scene you’ve read or written that made you step back and go, “Holy bear balls, that was f***ed up.”
