Addiction · 07. October 2019
I hate to admit it to myself let alone to anyone else that for the past six months I have been suffering from the dreaded social media addiction. It is a very real and destroying complaint that gradually crept up and took up all my time. It started with a few Youtube videos a day, and then a few more and then a few more and before I knew it I couldn't get a damn thing done, but throw my time away on watching Youtube videos, checking my Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter accounts. It was only...
Trolling · 30. August 2019
It doesn't matter if you're an Author, Musician, Indie film maker or whatever, if you produce material that's available to the public then you better grow a thick skin fast and I mean the hide of a Rhino. Because you will have people that will tear everything you worked so hard on to shreds, be it a genuine dislike or just plain trolling, and man it stings like a Japanese hornet, like someone just took a dagger and cut your heart out, then for good measure stomped on it. I learned very quickly...
Publishers · 31. January 2019
I felt compelled to write this post to warn people about this vanity press parading themselves as expert publishers. They are not experts, far from it in fact their skills at so called professional publishing is anything but and all you get from these creeps is a crappy book and shattered hopes and dreams. Take it from me, when I was first starting out self publishing I made the big mistake of contacting these scam artists and I was given a well rehearsed sales script from a gentleman by the...

This image truly reflects what the writing life is really like, frustrating and a real headache at times. Sadly this is how I've been feeling the past few weeks on the verge of throwing my laptop against the wall and saying F**k it all this writing business is so damn hard. I remember when I was in my early teens just how simple writing came to me, it was as easy as making a cup of coffee but now it's a struggle even putting a single paragraph together and I spent ages trying to figure out why...

Although I am an Atheist, there are a lot of Religious references in the last book of the Awesome Four series. This final book deals with the notion of Armageddon and Satan rising to destroy the world, along with Saint Michael and the other Angels who are there to fight against the mighty armies of Hell, and side by side with the Awesome Four they will take the fight to Satan and fight to the death. Along with that, the heroes discover that there are in fact seven gateways to Hell scattered...

To everyone on Goodreads, I am so sorry for the huge mess I have created with my listed titles. I never realized that Goodreads keep the old versions of the book live on their site even though they are now obsolete. I recently uploaded revised and edited versions of all my works and they are lost in a sea of old versions. The above covers are the revised and edited editions to look out for in the future and once again I am very sorry about this but I really had no idea that Goodreads keep all...

I have read tons of books about marketing, book promotion, advertising and Social media. Each and every one of those books tell that to be a successful Author you need to have profiles on all Social media platforms and build a following. It all sounds so easy on paper, get a Twitter profile, Facebook profile, Linkdin profile, Google+, Tumblr and even youtube. Well that's all fine and well I understand that you have to build a following, but as an unknown Author it's next to impossible, and all...

To say that it has been a strange week is putting it mildly to say the least. A few weeks ago I wrote a post called Creative lull in which I stated that I was suffering from writers block and getting frustrated with my work in progress, well something must've shifted my mindset because shortly after that post it was like a Dam had broken and all the ideas and story lines that were locked behind it came pouring out in flash flood of inspiration. Where once my characters voices were silent and I...

Being a writer can be strange at times. There will be times you absolutely love it and times you will despise it and it becomes a cliche love hate profession, you love to see the finished book but hate writing the damn thing. This has happened to me on numerous occasions to the point I just want to catch the lap top and smash it against the wall out of sheer frustration and say "That's it I'm done with writing, to hell with it," but something keeps bringing me back to my keyboard time and time...

My books are written for the new adult generation, and for those who don't know what new adult fiction is it's basically a step up from young adult fiction which is written fro people from age 12-18, so new adult fiction caters to those 18-30. When people see the word Author after your name I think it makes them a bit nervous about reaching out to say hello. Well, at the end of the day I'm a human being just the same as you, I live and breathe just the same as everyone else. The only difference...
