A Masterpiece of a Debut – Now is the Real Dystopia? All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai

One of the best books I’ve read in a long time, All Our Wrong Todays, was a far-reaching, insightful, and witty, novel, disguised as a shallow time-travel piece. I cried, I laughed, I yelled in frustration, as I read, Elan Mastai’s debut, in was an emotional roller-coaster.

How To Maximize Your Buy Links

As a blogger, Indie Author, or in my case, both, tracking and analytics is imperative to continued success. If something works, you want to know that it works and then you want to know what you did, so you can repeat it. No one is going to knock on your door and say “Hey, what you did there. It rocked. Do it again.” But, if you see that people are clicking, things like links… a lightbulb can go off, and you’ll realize that your efforts are paying off. If you can’t tell what people are clicking, though…well you’ve lost before you even started.

Book Signings 101 – What I Learned From A Year of Signings

The weekend that passed, was Booking in Biloxi, a large author even that is held every year in the city of Biloxi, Mississippi.

Cassie’s Coffee Shop Escapades – Flash Fiction Thursday

It’s been awhile. I have nothing but long and drawn out excuses that you don’t want to hear. They involve a wasp infestation, the fact that I can’t say no…and the genius idea of turning rentals into AirBnB’s but doing all the work myself. But, I made it. And I’m writing again. I even have a release schedule. What? Yup. And I thought my “back on the horse” flash fiction, would take place in the world of Karma Inc. which is my current series.
