Things have been a little hectic behind-the-scenes so I thought I should put together a post to keep you all updated (not to mention keep it all straight in my head).
I kind of jumped into the self-publishing thing without expecting to.
I had already planned to offer eBooks to Patreon supporters, but distributing them on Amazon, Kobo etc. wasn’t originally my plan. Why? I wasn’t sure people would pay to read individual short stories – but I also didn’t want to make decisions based on “what ifs” or out of fear of rejection. What good were these stories doing sitting on my harddrive unread? So, I took the leap and I’ve got 2 books out there just waiting for new readers to discover them.
It’s not exactly for the faint of heart, putting oneself out there. But what’s the worst that can happen? Someone doesn’t like my book? Oh well. Some day, the right person will read it, love it and buy another right?!

So far I’ve had 2 new readers – why not add your name to the list!
Amazon, Kobo & Goodreads
As you’ve probably seen, my ebooks are also now available on Amazon & Kobo for downloading.
And hey, if you want that bad boy signed, head over to Authorgraph and I’ll digitally sign your ebook!
If you don’t want to buy your eBooks from an online bookstore, why not buy it directly from me?
You now have the option of buying my first 2 ebooks in your format of choice directly on my website!
There is a BUY button on each story’s info page, and you can use Paypal to send your payment. During the checkout process, you can select the book in your format of choice (PDF, EPUB or MOBI).
If you decide to do it this way, I earn more bucks, which will support me in continuing to write more scary stories!
Whichever way you get your books, reviews are always welcomed and encouraged! Feedback from readers not only helps other readers find books but they make it all worthwhile!
I’d love it if you left a review of the books on both Amazon, Goodreads, Kobo or wherever else you can. Reviews are a great way for me to reach other readers so I’d be forever grateful if you took a little time and wrote a short review
You can also submit a review directly to me – just head over to the CONTACT page!
Well, all this promotion is tiring! What I really want to do is WRITE – so I decided to do Camp NaNoWriMo again.
I’ve had this idea for a serial for a while now. I even tried to write it once but something just didn’t gel. So, I’ve decided to rework the plot and tackle the project this July.
I know…this, on top of new stories I’m writing for submission, the novella edits (which I admittedly haven’t touched in a month), Patreon stories – it’s a bit of a crazy decision. But I feel like I’ve been flailing a bit and need something to ground me.
So, there you have it. The crazy life of a modern writer. Are you tired? I know I am!
