Hey nerds! I’ve got bad news.
Unfortunately, I will be halting publications for the foreseeable future.
This is absolutely not by choice and I’m very sorry to anyone who was looking forward to the rest of the Ascension series this year as well as the continuation of the Emergent series next year.
I’m not going to air all my dirty laundry, but long story short, my life is starting pretty much one hundred percent over. Therefore any money I have* will be going towards attempting to get my life together again.
I’m hoping things will stabilize in a year, two at the most, but I can’t say for sure so I’m not making any promises.
*My BMAC will still be an option for those who may be interested in supporting my books. Anything given through there will still 100% stay as cover money.
So, here’s to wading through a steaming pile o’ shit and hopefully coming out the other side stronger for it. Or even just still alive would be good lol.
I’ll post an update when things have returned to normal!
I was wrong. The remnant wasn’t gone. It had only been in hiding, and now, everything I bled for is at risk.

The new edition of Dragons’ Myth is officially published (paperback. EBook coming July 1st), and that means I can explain the changes. This will have spoilers, so only read if you have read the previous edition or when you’ve finished the new edition. Or if you’re a weirdo who likes spoilers, you do you.

I’ve been writing actively for three -ish years (although I published my debut way back in 2012), and honestly… I constantly had doubts. Constantly. With sales being basically non-existent, zero reviews, and having no social circle to help get the word out about my books, there was always a nagging thought in my head that I’m just a bad writer.
Well, I’m beyond excited to announce that yesterday, I noticed my very first review on Amazon! Continue reading My First Amazon Review!
Anyone who’s done a smidgen of research on the differences between self-publishing and traditional publishing would know that self-publishing takes a lot more effort. That’s not to say the traditional way doesn’t take effort, but once you get a publisher, it’s pretty much smooth sailing from there. There’s a whole team working for you, and you don’t really have to worry about marketing.
Self-publishing on the other hand Continue reading My Struggles as an Indie Author
How do we succeed when the Earth is on its knees? War, famine, pestilence, and death. It’s all caused by greed.
Nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. Sometimes it feels like we’re just along for the ride.
When do we say enough is enough? When do we pick up our swords and start being tough?
It’s time to say, “This ends now.” Never again back out and bow.
This is our home. We deserve what’s right. If it’s the only way, we will stand up and fight.

Back when I published Dragons’ Myth, it was when CreateSpace was still a thing, and I chose the free ISBN option. Using the free ISBN meant that particular ISBN would be exclusive to CreateSpace. Therefore, I wouldn’t be able to take that file with that ISBN and go print my book elsewhere. That still applies now that CreateSpace merged with KDP. Continue reading The Third Time’s The Charm
This is what I was asked when I told someone that I was using a mug instead of the cup they offered because I didn’t like using single-use items. In this situation, it was a polystyrene cup I didn’t want to use. Continue reading Do You Want To Wash The Dishes?
There has most likely been many times in your life when you’ve been drawn to a price label that ends in 99, especially when it comes to 99-endings versus whole numbers. Seeing a pack of candy for $4.99, maybe a car for $29,999. Sometimes it’s even non 99-ending numbers, such as a house being sold for $239,900. Continue reading My Thoughts on Popular Marketing Tactics
