A Time to Live, A Time to Reap

Happy All Hallow’s Eve-Eve

First and foremost, it’s almost Halloween!! My favorite time of year filled with masks, spooky stuff, fall at its peak, pumpkin flavored everything and the distant glimpse of Christmas. Since it is my most favorite time of the year, why not give something away?? So, a free, signed copy of my first book is available out there. If you already have a copy, why not enter for a chance to win a free one you can give to a friend or family for Christmas? I mean, that’s one gift for your cousin or Secret Santa you don’t have to trouble with. Oh, and if you have read it, check out my new review, see if it makes sense.

Have fun out there and get al the candy!

The Next 1000 Miles

Junk Punches

Just like the title sounds, reviews focusing on the negative side of your novel tend to feel the same way. I have recently gotten one of my first. Now, if there had been a back and forth on the good and bad or something justifiable in the reasons why “I don’t believe many adults could enjoy this novel.” I can respect a 3-Star rating. My book won’t be for everyone, I get that. Some will hate it, others will love it.

This guy’s Goodreads review … I imagined him sitting in a high-back captain’s chair, leather patches on the elbows of his jacket and starting every sentence with, “Mmm, yes…” in a snobby English accent. Basically, this review/critique held a lot of adult words and childish rhetoric to make someone feel better (not me). As long as he feels special, that’s what matters.

Let this be a lesson though. It will never do any good to comment or defend your work to these people. They have their opinions just like everyone has their chocolate pockets and I’m not going to try and clean those up either.

Haters gonna hate. Big whoop. In publishing my own work, I know my faults, the things I’d like to change and the improvements I need to make. But hey, that’s what sequels are for, right?

The Time Traveller’s Grandchild: Jonas Lee

If you haven’t looked at mylittlebookblog, now is definitely the time! She gave me my very first review (take note of that) and you’ll have to read what she says…


I was sent this book by the lovely Jonas Lee, and in his words loved your blog. I figured I would throw my hat in the ring. You can’t go anywhere if you don’t move, right?’ I am so happy you chose to ‘move’ and send this onto me and let me have a read. I was submersed in a new world and so carried away with this that I decided to review this rather than work on my philosophy dissertation (which I’m so worried about!) So that’s pretty impressive! Jonas states on his lovely blog at ‘http://jonasleeblog.com’ (Go check it out!) ‘If you want more, encourage me to get this sucker in front of an agent or publisher.’ So here it is Jonas, my plea to you, to get this to a publisher and get this out there for everyone to read! YES, I mean it! So, with…

What the Hell Am I Going to Buy with $0.02?

So, it’s been a few days. Still holding steady hoping to hear some positive news back from any literary agent. In my patience (of which I possess little to none) I started contemplating. I took off my author hat and replaced it with my business hat and I wondered how to think like a literary agent.

I took a long hard look at the concept in my manuscript I submitted vs. the story I am doing for fun. There are some major differences in writing as far as I can tell. So, I look at each story and wonder, “which one of these would I publish?”

Well, I hate decisions and since I am bias in this regard, I now call on you. There is a form below and if you are interested, I will accept the first five people to respond. Include your name and email and in return, I will send out the first 50 pages of my book to you within the next week. From there, please tell me what you think, what it needs, what it doesn’t, anything. If you hate it, love it, didn’t really get it, or didn’t really care I am literally all ears.

If you liked the experience, I’ll place you into my Imaginarium Forum and give you guys first crack at any new writing I have coming out ahead of time.

Time is somewhat of a factor, so please let me know by Saturday and if I don’t have 5, I’ll just go with whatever number works. Two cents might not buy jack squat nowadays except for an opinion. So, give me yours by the form below. I won’t respond to any comments on this one.
