As a writer, my first area of interest in obviously my books, but for my blog I will try to address different writing issues or provide my own tips when it comes to writing or self-publishing.
My blog also includes shout-outs to and recommendations for other blogs or websites, book reviews or recommendation, and a few posts sparked by nothing but an area of interest at the moment or occasionally a complaint or five.

Unfortunately, Talented: Fire did not make the next round of cuts in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest. On the bright side, it did get a very favorable review by the Publishers Weekly reviewer. Talented: Fire was being judged against other Fantasy, Science-Fiction, and Horror books, and I feel nothing but pride that my book made it as far in the contest as it did.
Congratulations to the 5 in my category to progress to the semifinals, and I have every confidence in those writers and their writing abilities. I wish nothing but the best for B R Sanders, J. Lincoln Fenn, Joe Occhipinti, Johanna Hofer, and Timothy Frame, the 5 semifinalists from my category, and I suggest that you all go check out their excerpts on Amazon.
