Today I'm happy to announce I'm part of the blog tour for the newly released Proof of Purple by talented young author J.C Buchanan.

I’m Not Standing Still

In my last post, I mentioned how I spent the past few months doing anything but writing my novel and blogging. That doesn't mean I've done nothing, so here's a quick roundup of my time since May.

It's true that there is stiff competition for these things, as there should be, but isolating yourself out of jealousy or preciousness isn't going to... Continue Reading →
