I am currently working on my graduating thesis for Arizona State University. For my thesis I must find a better way for new authors to break into the fictional book market.  I hope to discover this by contributing to the book community.

Some Exciting News

Contracts are signed!

A chapter from my upcoming novel, "The Phoenix Cycle" will be used as the example for modern stoic philosophy for a book that will cover the history, development, psychology, and modern day use of stoic philosophy. My chapter will be featured in the modern philosophy section.

The book is being written/published by philosophy professors and authors from University of Exeter, Birbeck University, and The Queen Mary University in London.

Make a 2 Sentence Horror story competition

I heard about this little horror competition.

 

I don't write horror at all but I thought it'd be fun seeing as I only have to write 2 sentences.

 

 

 

Here are my creepy entries:

 

"I was awoken by an angry knock at my bedroom door.  I live alone."

 

"My 7 year old daughter won't stop screaming in the middle of the night.  I keep burying her deeper and deeper each time, but she just screams louder."

 

"I really hate wasting food.  So I fed the rest of the fat bastard to the dogs before he went bad."

 

 

 

Have fun sleeping y'all!  :)

Where have I been? and should I take a shower?

Well I've been incredibly busy with my book thesis and figuring out my life post college. 

 

But I feel the end is near and the questions are finally being answered.

 

So with caution I say, "Hello again booklikes.  My good old friend."

A little Faith in Humanity Restored

I launched my Kickstarter for my book!

 

For those who don't know kickstarter is a crowd funding site.  This site makes it really easy to get involved and help up and coming authors.

 

I have been working on my kickstarter project for months.  I have done everything I could to make this a really interesting project!  Now all I have to do is get the word out!

 

A contribution, reblog, post, or a mention to your compadres would mean the world to me and would really help me out!

 

Great things start small :)

 

Here is the link!  Check it out!
