Three Reasons Why You Should Sign Up For My Newsletter

I can only imagine how you're looking at the screen right now. I can also imagine that a few of you may be gnashing your teeth in contempt, deciding whether or not to block me, right? Oh, yay! Just what the internet doesn't need! Another newsletter cluttering up my inbox!

So, I guess that if I'm going to ask you to sign up for my newsletter, I better offer you something that you can't get anywhere else.

What if I present you three things?

1). Early Access and Discounts.

If you sign up, you'll be the first to know about anything I release before the rest of the world learns of it. You'll be given a chance to beta read and offer First Feedback, and every newsletter subscriber will be given a chance to get my stories at a discounted rate or even free. You'll also be given the opportunity to get advanced copies of my stories before anyone else does.

2). I Will Teach You About The Writing, and the Life Process.

There are twenty authors that spring to my mind when I think of people I've learned from. I will point in the direction of all of them, and I will offer you, free of charge, everything I've learned about the writing and publishing process, how to spread your brand across social media, how to create plausible characters and even the ins and outs of freelancing.

3). I Will Show You How To Make Publishers Come To You.

I confess that I have made a ton of costly mistakes since I became a professional author, but the fact remains that I have never received a rejection letter. I've actually had publishing houses bid on my work. I can show you, free of charge, what I did to make this happen. I can't promise you the same results, but I will show you how I made it happen for me.

I will never spam you or sell your info. The newsletter will begin within the next thirty days and the first feature will be about the Work In Progress I've been talking about on social media lately. Those who sign up will get the first crack at it.

You can sign up on the blog itself, or click this link to be taken to the signup form.

America: A True Story About Hatred and Unity

I wanted fast food tonight. That was all. I found myself at Burger King to pick up my wife's order. I was a few cars deep when I spotted the Confederate flag. I surreptitiously snapped a few photos. This was going to be a very different story. When I pull out of Burger King, it turns out there's more than one. In fact, there are four trucks, each flying variations of the flag. I have to go around the front of them to avoid an accident. They're parked right in the middle of the road. As I drive around them, each person in the vehicle makes it a point to ensure I see them. I do. They see me too. When I get to McDonald's (which is in the same lot), I learn that they're not taking debit cards at the moment. Terrific. I wanted chicken nuggets and instead, I get a run-in with the new Confederacy. So I make my way back to Burger King, again appearing in full view of the trucks. I place my order, get it, pay, and pull out. Then one of the

The Long Road Home

I will end you tonight. No, wait. That's not where the story starts. The story starts two and a half years before this, when Michelle (referred to as Michelle for legal reasons because SATAN was too heavily trademarked) reached out to me by Facebook. She mentioned that we played the same Facebook game and she wanted to say hi. I had never, in fact, even heard of the Facebook game. But I was freshly broken out of a relationship and she was pretty with a good body so I said "Hurr, okay." Conversation ensues. She tells me we came up in the same place. We did not come up in the same place. We spent one night in San Francisco talking. But I really wanted to sleep with her. So, "Hurr, okay." Fast forward a few months. I've left Missouri for the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I've settled into the ass end of Lynnwood, a suburb of Seattle. The apartment was so bad that the landlord wrote the mold on the wall off as "crayon coloring

Wave Rocketbook Reviewed

I love writing by hand, and I love notebooks. I'll often devote entire budgets to them and when Officemax has one of their twenty-five cent sales, I'll buy them out. I often draft by hand, finding that the scene comes together more purely when it flows from a pen rather than a keyboard. So when DailyDot advertised a durable new type of notebook that you could use over and over again for the cheap price of twenty-five (thirty after shipping) US Dollars? I'm down. The Wave Rocketbook is meant to be elegant in its design and simple in its execution. The instructions come on the bag itself, and only the pen and notebook are included. The pen feels like any other, so you have to be careful not to mix it into your collection or you will end up marking your notebook with the wrong pen (like I did). The ink is erasable, which is a bonus. A place to put the pen would've been nice, but it clips easily, if not securely, into the ringed binding. The paper is thick and
