Hiya Literary Fans, It’s here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ten years ago, in my 9th grade high school biology class the idea for my main character, Solstice Bellatrix, popped in my head and I started to flesh out the plot for my novel Syphons. Around that time in my life, I started reading the Touched by an Alien Series […]
Your regular writing routine falters. Ideas no longer flow from your skull like a junior high student’s volcano project. You know your content needs to be king, but you feel more like an indentured servant to it. Then, the worse thing possible happens; writing stops feeling entertaining. Your “I ❤ The Writer’s Life” smartphone’s lock […]
Yep. I knew this was going to happen. Last month, I started a new insurance desk job. My last insurance job dumped me two months before I released my first sci-fi novel. The extra time being laid-off gave me opportunities to write more and market. However, after three whole months with no leads on a […]
As a 90s kid, the only movies I remembered watching besides animated flicks like The Lion King or the occasional live-action comedy such as Dr. Doolittle was sci-fi movies.

Fellow indie authors did you feel […]

Sunshine beamed across the tall windows of the public library as I made my way towards the Sunlit Literary Festival that Saturday afternoon. Hope in my heart, and a little pep in my step. I walked briskly past the man who asked me if I wanted to sign up to vote regarding assault rifles. I […]
I started taking blogging seriously in 2012 when I signed up for the Tribe Writers Class by Jeff Goins. I knew that I wanted to be a writer of some sort, but (a) fear of being judge by well-meaning family members, (b) I needed steady and stable income for said family, (c) I couldn’t justify […]
You just sat down in front of your laptop. Grabbed yourself a cup of coffee or maybe popped open your energy drink. And, then your cat appears out of thin air. As your beloved companion makes their way towards you, you realize that it’s a trap and they are blocking you from creating the next […]
Hiya literary fans, As I write this, I’m sitting at Sunset Park. Sunlight sparkles down on the dancing waves. Boats and wave runners are filling the relative silence with the growl of their motors. The sky is bright, blue, and clear. And, the breeze brushing against my skin is unexpectedly cool, but refreshing for mid-April […]
It’s funny, the old saying that goes like this: You don’t miss something until it’s gone. The last couple of weeks, I’ve been worried about how to sustain my disabled mother and myself financial. I have a lot of pressure on my shoulders as a 24-year-old who has been working full-time for almost a decade. […]
