End of Book 3 + Special Announcement

Well friends,

We’ve made it to the end of book 3. This one especially important to me. I’ve tried to go bigger and better every time I’ve done one of these. What began as a flippant scribbling on a blog wall when I first came to North Carolina has blossomed first into a small poetry book, followed by a second poetry book with matching audio. Now, thanks your continued encouragement, I’ve decided to really go for the gusto. I’ve submitted my book for legit publishing. Ever since I was in high school, working on my first literary tome, I’ve dreamed of getting published through a major press. Now, years later, I’m going at it again, and I think it stands a really good chance.

I’ve definitely learned a lot over the years. Most of all: do what you all and don’t quit. And even more so than that, give it all to God, because He loves you and He is a good Father, more than capable of directing our steps to greener pastures.

I’m so excited to see where this next step in the journey leads.

Blessings to you all,

7 Things NOT to do When (Self-)Publishing Your Novel

Hello amazing writer friends, here are a few comical pointers on what not to do when you’ve finally reached the point of publishing your manuscript:

-Stab yourself in the eye, instead of signing the contract

-Throw your computer across the room after finishing the final sentence

-Describe your novel as “too difficult to explain”

-Measure your novel length in trees cut down

-Set your font to neon Wingdings

-Record your audio book beside a buzz saw or jackhammer

-Pre-order a bunch of copies and spend the official release date throwing them at animals and/or random passersby
