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.

The weekend that passed, was Booking in Biloxi, a large author even that is held every year in the city of Biloxi, Mississippi. The BiB signing was the first signing that I participated in as a new author. It took me almost a year to work myself up to do a signing – and – also to make it onto a list.
