About Me

I am an aspiring author, hoping to guide my writing career towards prosperity rather than sitting back and accepting that its current hobby status is the fulfillment of its potential.

I currently have two books listed on Amazon.com:

Isle of Elandia: Bloodline
The Progression of a Soul: Featuring the Lay of Elandia

You can click on the “My Books” link to learn more about these books.

I self-published through createspace.com, which is an Amazon.com sponsored site and it’s great for writers starting out.  I can’t describe to you how amazing it felt to hold my book in my hands, a real book, not just the print out of my manuscript in a two dollar binder.

The purpose of this site is obviously to promote myself as a writer, but also to help others be promoted as a writer.  As a self-published author, I explored many avenues of big publishing houses before I decided to do it myself through createspace.  I queried several publishing houses and was turned down.  So, I decided to self-publish, and I could not be happier with my decision.

There is a common misconception that self-published authors are not good enough to be published by a big publishing house like Apple or Random, and that is why they seek the self-publishing route.  This is just false.  While it is true that not everyone who can write should write, it is definitely not true that all self-published authors are bad writers.

If you are the author of a self-published book, contact me.  I will purchase it (yes, I will buy it, I know the struggle is real) and write a review of your work right here on my site to help you promote.  Be warned, my review will be thorough and honest, and avoid spoilers which could detract from potential readers.

Don’t worry though, if I don’t have anything good to say about your book, I will provide you a constructive critique via email only, rather than blast it all over the online world.

I hope you find my website interesting and will check back frequently for reviews/updates!
