Paperback of Death in the Wastelands is (finally) Live!

Paperback of Death in the Wastelands is (finally) Live!

I have been continually wrestling with Amazon’s new paperback layout software for awhile know. But the battle has been won.

They changed over from Createspace recently, and the transitions wasn’t exactly seamless, but hey we got there!

So if you’re one of the readers who’ve been waiting for a paperback, here it is in all it’s glory.

Ah, the trials and tribulations of self-pub. To be honest, I love it. Having creative control and being at the helm of the ship so to speak is just so much damn fun. I think i’d be bored if I just sent it off to a publisher and twiddled my thumbs.

Anyway, I hope y’all have a great weekend. STAY AWAKE, STAY ALIVE!

Death In The Wastelands Now on Kindle Unlimited!

Death In The Wastelands Now on Kindle Unlimited!

Launching a book is always so exciting. I love it. All that hard work come together to finally be manifest into reality.

I’ve been trying to decide on whether to pub Death In The Wastelands on all outlets or Kindle Unlimited, and after some deliberation, I’ve decided to go KU.

I think there’s just a ton of upside. Most of which involve Amazon visibility.

So if any of y’all are enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, you can now check out Death In The Wastelands for free!

I’ve got a handful of reviews so far, and I’ve got more coming down the pike. The feedback has been awesome, I think people are really enjoying this one. KU will get some more eyes on this bad boy and we can get this train rolling downhill!

Have a good week, all.

OFFICIAL RELEASE OF DEATH IN THE WASTELANDS.

OFFICIAL RELEASE OF DEATH IN THE WASTELANDS.

It’s official. We out here.

Death in the Wastelands is now published, ready for your reading pleasure.

I’m really tired, lol. But I am so very excited to announce this. Because I’ve worked incredibly hard on this, and I think it’s going to be everything my readers ever wanted from a origin story for the American Rebirth Series.

It follows Rob, Taylor and Whiskey from the very beginning. And good goddamn was it fun to write.

WERE BACK BABY!

It’s live on Amazon, just click the picture above. It’s live on some of my other distributors too, but it’s just taking a little while for some of them to publish it. I’ll post links to it later on when they’re all live. And the paperback should be live soon, too.

For all the readers, fans, friends and loved ones that have supported me all the way, this is for you. I appreciate you more than I can put into words.

I truly hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

I love y’all.

Stay Awake, Stay Alive.

DEATH IN THE WASTELANDS Release Date: 8/7/19

We’re just seven days away, now. August 7th is the day.

Today begins the 7 day countdown until the release of DEATH IN THE WASELANDS: AMERICAN REBIRTH ORIGINS

Ohhhhh boy.

I’ve been editing and working with my beta readers, and I think it’s just about ready. I’m going to continue to comb through it all the same.

This book is going to blast people’s fucking faces off. I know that’s far from the humble take but I don’t care, I poured my heart and mind into this shit and I think it slaps, as the kids say.

I can’t wait to get this thing out there. It’s the most fun I’ve had writing a book to date.

And I can’t think of a better thing to say about it than that. It’ll be released on Kindle/B&N/Kobo/iTunes/Google Play, and all the lil guys.

Get fucking hyped.

Cover Reveal: DEATH IN THE WASTELANDS

Cover Reveal: DEATH IN THE WASTELANDS

I’ve been working with Jeff Brown on the cover for Death in the Wastelands, American Rebirth Origins and I’m really psyched to say it’s completed.

Hell Yeah.

He’s a pretty special artist. If you want you can check him out here at
Jeff Brown Graphics. It’s been fun seeing it come to life, but most exciting of it all is that it’s another milemarker closer to getting the book out there.

Getting the cover made is a big part of the story feeling like it’s coming to life. I’m editing it right now, and hopefully it’ll be ready by early Summer.

Man, I can’t wait. I think y’all are gonna like it.

From Me to You in this Universe, While We Are Still Alive.

From Me to You in this Universe, While We Are Still Alive.

Maybe you’ve suffered great tragedy.

Maybe your life has been blessed beyond measure.

Maybe you’ve lost all motor functions.

Maybe all your dreams have come true.

Maybe you died years ago.

Maybe all of these things are true, in different universes, different timelines, in the great multitude of possibilities everything has happened. Or maybe time goes on forever and matter is finite, so you have existed endless millions of times before, and you will again.

But regardless, you are here. And in being able to consider these vast theoretical possibilities, we can consider what our lives are now. Maybe there is no other life, no other universes. Maybe this is all we have.

If so, it’s even more beautiful. As fucked up or as blessed as your life may be, it is your life. It’s yours.¬†Take a moment to embrace that.

More than likely, your life, as my life, has had both tragedy and moments of joy. I am grateful for all of it. All the pain and the love. All of it.

I know now, at 31 years old, that who I am and the love in my heart is a gift. Even though I can be jaded sometimes, I don’t let it stop me. I do my best to share it with the world, in my writing, with my students, with my loved ones, and strangers I interact with every day. And I’m proud of that. More proud of that than anything else.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

A Promise is A Promise…Book 3 is Done

A Promise is A Promise…Book 3 is Done

A promise is a promise. I said I’d get the book done by the end of this week. And even if I came screeching up to the deadline…

American Rebirth, Book 3 of the American Rebirth series is finally finished.

It’s hard to believe this day has come…

I’m submitting it to Amazon tonight. It might take a few days, but soon it will be live for sale. I’ll push it out to all the other distributors in the next few days.

I feel kind of numb, floaty, like nothing really make sense yet. It hasn’t hit me, and it probably won’t for awhile.

Like all writers, I am currently in that manic state of excitement to get it out, and fear that it somehow isn’t ready or isn’t good enough. But I must kick that feeling in the face, and trust the work I and others have done to help make this book what it is.

And it is time.

For all you readers who waited patiently, thank you. I really can’t wait for you all to read it.

And if you really want to make me happy, leave a review when you’re done. Whatever you think of it. Even if it’s just a bunch of stabby emojis.

Now I [try and] rest.
