You Want Me To Do What?!

You Want Me To Do What?!

The original blog post below was one of my most popular ones in 2014, and I think it bears posting again as a lot of people ask me how the heck I have 70k followers on Twitter and no currently-published books. That's a question a lot of people ask me when I tell them how I gain social media followers and interact with so many great people and business. So, how do I do it? Easy. You need to pimp yourself.

Supporter Shoutout

The amount of personal and business things that I'm dealing with at the moment are so unbelievable, I couldn't even write a fictional story about it! So I thought it would be a good time to do a quick shout out to a few people who rock my writing world and keep me going when things are tough.

My F.A.Q. – How Do You Decide On A Title?

It's been a while since I did an FAQ and I was asked this great question the other day. Titles are something like blurbs for me - a necessary evil.
