Here’s another poem for Project 27 – I’m actually not sure how many I’ve finished now, but I’m feeling pretty good about this one. Taking inspiration from life. As usual!
As many of you know, I’ve been documenting how difficult it can be for a self-published author to promote their books consistently when you’ve also got a day-job. There are many tools on the web that can help the self-published man or woman, but many require a fair amount of time up front.
Day 1, it’s here!
As always, here’s a snippet of today’s writing. If you buy Steel Praetorian when it comes out, you’re in luck, as the prologue of Laurel Emperor is featured at the end of the novel!
Anywho, read the snippet beyond the break. 1,788 words and counting!
Long time no talk, but as you know school has started here in Maryland, and that means that all my free time is taken up with lessons, grading, planning, and talking with other teachers about all of the above. However, I’ve managed to make some headway on the back blurbs for Steel Praetorian, especially as the editor has promised me SP will be in my hand by the end of the week (fingers crossed). Here are the two that are the ‘final cut’ and I’d love some input from you!
As many of you may know, this last year (time wise, not 2016 wise) I participated in both NaNoWriMo 2015 (November) and Camp NaNoWriMo2016 (July). I’ve compiled my thoughts on the experience so you can see if NaNoWriMo is right for you! This is the first post, detailing how the programs are similar and how they differ. The second one will focus on what I like and what I think could be improved
I’ve finally expanded this blog to include a page detailing my educational consulting, which is an area I’ve recently been working on expanding. As a teacher with several years of experience in a high-needs school and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum, Instruction, and assessment, I believe I’ve got the skills and knowledge necessary to support your school or education based project! You can always contact me through the form above, and we can talk about specifics. I’ve included a few of my previous projects there as well. Let your friends and family know!
Another blogger is on the lookout for good steampunk websites, blogs, writers, etc, as she is looking to compile a big list about them! Hop on over and check out her site For Whom the Gear Turns – I also recently backed her kickstarter to send her to several steampunk conventions (since I don’t have the time to go and it’s always fun to get another writer’s point of view on a convention before I commit the time or money to go to one!
(Full Disclosure – Iron Tribune has an ad up on her site (Part of the reward for the kickstarter pledge) – But then again you already own Iron Tribune, don’t you?)
Here’s a preview below. Enjoy!
Salve! The launch of the Iron Tribune Kickstarter has begun! You can access the project here!
