Japan, Bender, Moving Forward

Post Image

I recently got back from a 10-day solo journey around Japan, and it was an utterly fantastic experience. I had never traveled alone internationally before, so it was definitely quite the adventure. Japan was just as beautiful as I imagined, and I feel blessed that I got to visit, and see so much in so little time. It was the [...]

Looking Ahead

I haven’t written a real post in almost six months now, so this felt extremely overdue. I have lots of exciting news to share, the first being that I am working in publishing again and I’m super excited about it.

New Perspectives

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted an entry, but I suppose that just allows me to chat more about what has happened in the months in between I last wrote. I HAVE A JOB! But in all seriousness, I said at the end of my last entry that I hoped to have a job by my next [...]

Short Story Writing/A Brief Check In

It’s been two months since the release of ‘What Happened to Marilyn.’ It’s been great to get the continued feedback that has been coming in from the readers of the book. I’ll soon be sending out five copies of the novel to the winners of the Goodreads giveaway. Over 600 people signed up. It was really neat to see that [...]

My 2nd Book Will Soon Be Published!

Post Image

So it has been about two months since I wrote my last update and a lot has happened since then! What Happened to Marilyn has been re-edited and cut down by about 18,000 words. It is now a little bit under 100,000 words, so I am really happy about that. I edited it myself, and also had my friend Michael do [...]

Priam, Contests, Authors, Marilyn, and Europe!

So I’m a few days behind on the monthly update, but I still wanted to reflect on a few things that have passed the last month. And it’s now been half a year that Priam Wood has been published, which is kind of hard to believe! Although the book was one of six finalists in the Readers’ Favorite contest in [...]
