Second Chances

One of the awesome parts of self-publishing is the ability to manage everything yourself. One of the horrible parts of it is the ability to manage everything yourself. So, you have to own any awful decisions you make. The original cover of Atlantis: TVC volume #1 was a debacle. I originally made my artwork too […]

The Treasures of Maps

It’s funny how varied the places are from which we look back. Sometimes it’s merely a few months; maybe a few years. Other times, it’s seventeen years and it completely takes you by surprise. I’m pretty sure I’ve talked about how Atlantis: TVC was originally conceived while I was in high school, in geography class; […]

Decisions, Reviews, and Promotional Copies

I’m sitting here, trying to decide if I want to make Atlantis: TVC Volume #1 exclusive to Amazon for 90 days. On the plus side, it would be great for getting it out there in the spotlight. I haven’t had much success with any online or paid advertising–only word of mouth seems to be working […]

Spring Sale [and a FREE Atlantis Wallpaper!]

Sorry if you saw the front page of the site doing weird things last night… I was updating and a table broke. It’s all fixed now! Anyway, I fully intended to do this over Easter weekend, but it didn’t update until today, so… uh… Easter Weekend Spring Special! The first volume of Atlantis: The Visionary […]

Uh, About That…

So I went to submit the final edition of Atlantis: TVC #1 a few days ago, and uh, submitted an old test draft on accident. I didn’t realize it until Sunday night when I went to check things over before today’s launch, and opened up the preview. I hurriedly re-submitted the final version on the […]

It’s Official!

The official release date of Atlantis: The Visionary Continent Volume #1 is March 17th. So excited! So scared. You can pre-order it now! Check it out at Kobo, iBooks, and Barnes & Noble! I really am kind of freaking out. I’ve had little sleep, my daughter punched me in the eye early this morning after […]

E-books, Images, and You

Very self-help-y, right? If you are planning on adding images to your e-book, then this is the place to be. All of my books are illustrated, and it was a pain trying to figure out how to format images. I did all my images one way, because one site said so, but it turned out […]
