Advice from Experience

I just did a book signing yesterday at a local town celebration and I did better than Fan Fest in Chicago, and Comic Con in Milwaukee. Not by much, but still better. Win! I also spent less on participating because it was local. Win, Win! I think my take...

The Struggles of an Author in Today’s Market

I might sound a little whiny in this post, and for that I’m sorry. It’s not my intent to whine and complain, but to be honest about the behind the scenes of being an author. I feel I have failed on some level with my author life. I can...

Next Friday I will be heading to Chicago for the Heroes and Villains Fan Fest event! I am so excited! Terrified, yes, but excited! There is an average of 40,000 people who attend the event over the weekend. This is by far the biggest thing I have ever done....

It’s been a while…

I haven’t been posting much lately because my writing life has been minimal. I’ve wanted to write, but I’ve been battling a springtime flood here at my new house instead. The entire driveway was a two inch deep puddle for a few weeks and it managed to flood our...

Book Tour 2019

My husband has been very busy playing the role of manager for me. He has signed me up for a number of different book signing events. I’m both excited and nervous. I know that the only way to get word out about my book is to tell people. Obviously....
