Quaking Soul Cover Reveal!

Although I'm a writer and a lot happens inside my head, I'm also a very visual person. So there's something special about seeing what's imagined turned into something I can see and touch. This is especially true for the covers of my books. Now, I learned a lot from The Adventure cover. Such as the… Continue reading Quaking Soul Cover Reveal!

Quaking Soul Update #5.5

I have repeatedly been thankful for other authors who post about their mishaps or tips in regards to self-publishing. So here's a quick mishap/tip from me: I'm honestly not sure what I was thinking when I picked The Adventure as my title for my first book.

Quaking Soul Update

Wow, it was not my intention to go this long without blogging. Sorry I’ve been away for so long! I’m going to steer clear of commentary about our world today. You can guess the pandemic and everything else has touched my life just like it’s touched others without me saying much about it. Since I… Continue reading Quaking Soul Update #5

Aspen Path

A tiny, fuzzy creature peeks out of the entrance of its burrow. It’s small, whiskered nose twitches, scenting the air, searching for the tell tale odor of the predator. The scent is there but, for once, it’s faint like a wisp of smoke on the wind. The pika steps further out, confirming with its eyes… Continue reading The Pika’s Day

Updating the Face…

I've a confession. Sometimes I'm lazy. I started this blog in 2012 after listening to one of Michael Hyatt's lessons on writing and self publishing. He advised putting a picture of myself on every platform I used. That way, no matter if it's WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, or some other platform, readers could recognize each site… Continue reading Updating the Face…

Rare Creature Sighting

2nd Look Books logo

Within the burrows of my heart hides this tiny creature. It's fuzzy with rounded ears and a small nose, much like a pika. It's about the same size too. This is the creature that jumps for glee at being invited to a friend's event or that scrambles with purpose when hosting a game night. This… Continue reading Rare Creature Sighting
