Updates Pending…

I have this master plan... really it's just a schedule for upcoming posts. For today, it said Book Production Update. Sounds official at least, right? but when I sat down to write, I realized anything I could post about would be horribly boring. I've already written about anything interesting and really, I'm now in a… Continue reading Updates Pending…

Blessed by Kickstarter Success!

The Adventure Kickstarter came to a close yesterday, 109% funded. The generosity and support people gave this last month warms my heart. I really didn't know what to expect when I launched the project and the response I got seriously brings tears to my eyes, like a giant hug from everyone I've met and even… Continue reading Blessed by Kickstarter Success!

HA! KDP Figured

Formatting, formatting, formatting... This post deals with the difference between formatting for a physical book in CreateSpace and formatting for the digital copy in KDP. There may be a bit of ranting. You have been warned. You design a book for CreateSpace, picturing the physical copy in your hand. There's a helpful, little option in… Continue reading HA!

Here's my top three: People are insanely generous and supportive. I'm an introvert. I'm… Continue reading Learning Curve

Why yes, there are rewards for anyone who backs The Adventure on Kickstarter. This is one of the coolest parts of running a Kickstarter. First off, your name will end up in print. I.E. You'll be added to the acknowledgements of the book! From there, the rewards depend on the level at which you support… Continue reading It Comes with Rewards?!

It’s Me…Yikes!

I'm an INTROVERT. I recharge when I'm alone. I have no problem spending days reading and hanging out at home...maybe that's why I'm a writer. I get kind of freaked out about calling people, or stopping by work when I'm not on the schedule, or being in big crowds. (Anyone with me here?) But I'm… Continue reading It’s Me…Yikes!

That Voice! The One That’s Not A DEEP MALE VOICE in the Trailer

In my last post, I mentioned I needed a DEEP MALE VOICE to say 'ominous things' for The Adventure book trailer. If you're familiar with My Why, you know reading did not come easy for me. If you're not familiar with My Why, the quick rundown is I struggled to read when I was young.… Continue reading That Voice! The One That’s Not A DEEP MALE VOICE in the Trailer
