Side Effects

In 2019 I went from 195 pounds after my surgery to 155 pounds. I decided I wanted to eat less and move more, and I did. But something else happened too. I almost entirely stopped drinking. I had been in the habit of enjoying a drink at night, even when my partners...

Changes Ahead

In January, 2019, we realized that our house had old termite damage that wasn't disclosed, an active termite infestation, and a lot of water entering the house and causing damage. This significantly impacted the home renovation timeline, and I put a lot of my personal...

I swear, World, you will not stop me!

I started writing the new book yesterday, then it stormed like crazy and water started flowing into my house like a river... I didn't get much done on the book. But I've got a plan, and after a late run to the hardware store for materials, I'll really get to work....

All up in that romance

Amazon Advertising, take…23?

I’ve tried Amazon Advertising a lot, and I just tried it again. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong! At first I let Amazon place the ads, and that didn’t result in any sales. I tried where I placed the ads, but that didn’t work either (although I did get 1 sale). I’m...

Freebooksy.com Series Promotion

I purchased a Freebooksy.com series promotion for the Infinite Vampire series on Sep. 14, 2018, and I made the first book, BLOOD 4LIFE free for that day. I had 2,179 downloads of the free book! Now, people that download a ton of books for free, rarely read them all,...
