Building the Brand of You

The name of one of the panels I spoke on over the weekend seems fitting for discussion. Who am I? What is my brand? What thing do I identify myself with? How do you build an author brand? Do you even know what you… Continue Reading “Building the Brand of You”

Creative Writing Convention 

I’ve been MIA for a while. I took a sort of writer vacation by attending Imaginarium this past weekend. Imaginarium is the largest creative writing convention in the Midwest. There were over 150 authors in attendance.  I had wonderful time, met a lot of… Continue Reading “Creative Writing Convention “

Discovery: Part 3

RIGHT HERE Once ago I thought I knew myself. But that was years ago. I’m me. Though I’m not myself. I see all this time passing by and I think I should be different. Think I need to conform. I clench my eyes shut… Continue Reading “Discovery: Part 3”

Book Shoot

I decided to have a little fun with my first novel. And since it’s fall, why not have a photo shoot?  Any thoughts?

On the Wall Go now, Free yourself. These walls take face. Anew year by year, The paint recedes. The drawings appear thy noon.
