In light of recent events in this country and the emboldenment of white supremacist groups, I wanted to take this week to give some attention to two groups that actively work against this evil. They are the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Anti Defamation League. Both do great work, and I’m hoping that you’ll … More Action & Some Words
Whew! BookCon 2017 ended Sunday evening, but it feels like I should still be getting ready for it! Crazy how quickly it went by… It was a lot of fun, though, and I got to meet a ton of awesome people. My only regret is not taking photos while I was there. I wish I … More BookCon is over! Now what??

Hey, all! Check out this absolutely wonderful digital drawing of my characters, Lissa and Blade! I’m in love with how dynamic this is, and the expressions of the characters.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must know about the state of this country right now. We’re not at the threshold of the apocalypse. But for many people, it feels that way. Did you make any effort to understand why? For many Americans, their basic human rights are suddenly under threat. Not because the … More So, America. Here we are.
It’s that time. Election Day is coming this Tuesday, November 8th, and we Americans are going to set the tone of our future. I, like many others, are… well, a stronger synonym for “concerned” would be best here, but we’ll leave it at that for now.

I’ve mentioned before that reviews are the lifeblood of authors, especially indie and self-published ones. Sales are always nice, but unless you have a large audience constantly purchasing your work, they can be little more than numeric blips on the radar. Don’t get me wrong, sales are great, and it’s a wonderful feeling whenever someone … More Have You Reviewed a Book Lately?
