I don't know about the rest of you, but I am able to mark key aspects of my life by what book I was reading at the time. From the first time I fell in love (Twilight Eyes, Dean R.

Patrick B Vince

this morning was different
I knew something had changed
I no longer had that mental restraint
I no longer cared if I caused pain
screams sounded more like melodies

I wasn't always this way
I had that something that kept me sane
something that prevented me from acting

I created my own cover for Sarah. It came out fairly well for a semi user of Photoshop. I did not like how the digital version were outside of Amazon and created a cover for the book. Once I have the cover I then set it up for print on demand as well. I am keeping my fingers crossed for it to hav... Read more of this blog post »

Two things of note to mention:

1) Plan B Magazine has just posted my short story "The Farm" on their website. This marks two minor milestones for me. First, it's the third printing for the story, and this is the first time I've had a story appear three times. Also, there's a link on the site to a... Read more of this blog post »

1. When you take on a project as an editor, describe your editing process.



First, I tell the author what I noticed when I first read the manuscript. These are the largest issues such as plot holes or characters that need better development. Since I read it quickly the first time, there’s usually n... Read more of this blog post »
