On Fiction

One of my beta readers for the upcoming My Zombie My came up with a brilliant idea last night for a promotion for the book — a mock “radio station” slash site akin to those used in My Zombie My. Follow Email PostShare on Tumblr

Zombie promotions and beta readers

Ask any indie author and, aside from sales, the one thing they will all say they need more of are reviews. It’s almost a universal. How is this possible? People read and review books. There are seemingly countless sites out there dedicated to the book review. There’s a catch…always a […]

Reviewer sites should open their hearts and minds

I am not only a writer, I am a reader (they go hand-in-hand after all). And seeing as how I am an indie author (check out the right navigation for purchase links to my ever-growing catalog) it would only make sense that I would read other indie authors. Follow Email […]

Why I am against the .99 cent price

News that’s news worthy

Writing Believable Antagonists As long as I’ve been reading and writing, I’ve had a soft spot for well-drawn villains and antagonists. Even as a kid, I found myself sitting on the sidelines quietly rooting for cartoon villains like Wyle E. Coyote and Gargamel. It wasn’t because I hated the Roadrunner, […]
