Antiartists by Ralph Pullins

I don’t like to DNF books. I don’t know what it is, but there is something deep inside my soul that aches at the idea of leaving a book started unfinished. In fact, in my long relationship with books there are less than a handful that I can even claim as DNF’s.

This book justifies every single reason for that decision.

Author Toolbox: Building Your Social Media Platform

Recently I was approached by the fabulous Raimey Gallant about a Blog Hop idea she had to help build up other authors. Since I had so much fun participating in her 2016 Nano Blog Hop, I jumped at the opportunity to join in!

So, from now until the end of the year, I will be working alongside a roster of other rocking authors to help provide content centering on building a strong author platform. Each month I’ll be adding another ‘tool’ for you to add to your own personal Author Kit, using things I’ve learned from building my own platform. I’m excited to share some of the tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way, and to see what the other authors have to share as well! (For a full roster of #AuthorToolboxBlogHop participants click HERE)

Are you ready? Let’s go!

2017 SerendipiTeaTour: Amanda Hanson

Hello lovelies!

So, as you may or may not know, I was recently asked to join the ranks of the authors being featured in the 2017 #SerendipiTea Tour, a book blog tour featuring sixteen debuting authors from 2017! Since that’s exactly Alice’s cup of tea (Mad Tea Party, anyone?), I was super stoked!

Even MORE recently, I was given the opportunity to HOST one of stops on the tour, and when I heard who the author was, I literally jumped at the chance. Not only is she an incredible writer, she also happens to be one of the COOLEST people I know!

Who is this femme fatale? None other than my very own Pen Name bestie, Miss Amanda Gernentz Hanson!

Where There’s A Whim, There’s A Way

It’s taken me a couple dozen  years, but I have recently learned something about myself that I find rather interesting. It’s something that I’ve never really paid attention to, but the course of my life over the past year has completely validated.

Here it is: Continue reading Where There’s A Whim, There’s A Way

Lost

My name is Callum McDonald, and I don’t know who I am. series-cover

I get flashes sometimes, pictures that dance through my mind, but as soon as I reach for them they vanish into a whisper. It’s been happening for almost a week now. I have to guess, because the only way to track time anymore is the rising and falling of the sun, and my almost-memories have kept me preoccupied. They demand my attention, forming faces and shapes that tease; their way of tormenting me for forgetting them. I try to put them into words, to speak them back into existence, but each time I reach for the right description, they disappear, no more than an empty wisp.
