Transitions

So after some time, I am finally back to using my web page! Now for those that don’t follow me on social media, I recently announced that I’ve converted the page to outsource my writing to those that may be in need of a writer for their company.

However, fear not! Although my web page has gone through some design changes and now gives you the option to hire me, I will be getting back to writing original content once again.

Now looking at the top of the page, you may see that there are three categories of writing that you can now choose from. All three will begin having new content once again to be read and enjoyed.

The first is my fiction. One thing I love doing is writing works of science fiction and horror. Although I SHOULD be trying to gain publication with some online magazines, I generally get too excited about what I’m writing and want to share it with the world right away. So that trend will continue in the fiction area.

I’ve also decided to keep the writing prompt section mainly because people seemed to enjoy it. Not only did it help other writers, it also helped keep my craft up to par as well. So if you’re a new writer and needing practice, make sure to check in there.

Finally, the blog portion of my page is the one thing that is going to undergo some changes. As of right now, most of the posts on there are updates on either myself or my book. This is going to change so that I can continue to provide quality entertainment.

Going forward I’m going to begin sharing some of my travels that I’ve done this summer. Some of the posts will share what I did while others will review some of the places I visited. I’m hoping it will help serve as a basic guide for those wishing to visit these places in the future.

The blog section will also have a different format and I will try to stick with a more traditional setup for that writing.

I believe that’s everything that I have for now. Make sure if you’re not following me on social media you click on the icons below! I’m always posting some form of content to my pages and if you’re not subscribed to my page for updates on my latest work, make sure to do that as well!

Let the Fun Begin

Well it came and passed and was a major success. I officially did my first book signing at the 408 Fine Arts Factory in Peru, Illinois and let me just say I had fun while learning a few things for future endeavors. The biggest thing that I learned was that it doesn’t hurt to tell the audience what your book is about. In hindsight, it seems like something that should not have been over looked on my part and yet I still managed to do it. Oh well, hopefully the next time I get things right.

But now that the book signing has came and passed, it is time to focus in on getting my book out there once again. On the off chance you haven’t bought a copy yet, A Monstrous Tomorrow is available on Amazon and to the right hand side of your screen. With the sequel still being in the early stages, there is still plenty of time to get a copy and get it read.

As for the future, my next endeavor is to really grind in on marketing my book. This starts with both running ads AND trying to get more reviews. If you’re a professional reviewer and have the proper credentials, feel free to get in contact with me. I would love to be able to get a copy in your hands in order to get more information out into the ether about my book.

The other option I have is to begin running professional ads and promotions on Amazon. Starting sometime in October, my book will run at a discount for a handful of days (I haven’t decided which yet) and hopefully as you visit the site you’ll begin seeing suggestions for my book to be purchased as well.

Please also keep an eye on my author page on Amazon as well. With Halloween coming up, I will be rolling out some more short horror stories on there for people to read and preview. Hopefully that will inspire others to check out my book as well.

The only other thing I have to say is to start tuning in regularly with my blog and my social media accounts. With my favorite time of year coming up, I tend to get inspired to write a lot of my best work in the fall. As such, tiny stories may begin appearing on Facebook, Twitter, this blog, or even my Amazon page for purchase. This will be quite an exciting flurry so stay tuned!
