Hi,

Definitely! The Vinyl Trilogy is a young adult urban fantasy/dystopian series. The main character is nineteen and I was nineteen when I published the first book (Vinyl).

As far as tips, I actually just wrote up a long blog post with some information on the advantages and disadvantages of indie publishing. Here's a link! https://mayyourbooksguideyouhome.word...

When I reached the end of it, I realized it felt incomplete, so I just kept going. The question I wanted to answer when I got the idea was "what if music was weaponized?" It unfolded from there.

Usually when I get a short burst of writer's block, I simply back away from the manuscript and take a break. Watch an episode of The Office, take a nap, exercise, read...whatever works. Usually by the time I'm done with that, I'm ready to dive back in to the story!(less)

I have no words.

That was one of the strangest, scariest, and most ecstatically beautiful books I have ever read.

I literally have nothing else to say.

It was that good.

“Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen
