Delaware Book Signing – March 11, 2017 12pm-4pm

flyer2-1

Hello everyone! I am very excited, for this Saturday there is an event coming up that I’ve been waiting for for a long time – my first ever book signing!

This is yet another major milestone that I’m very proud to have achieved. If you live in or around the northern Delaware area, or will be around here this weekend, I’d greatly appreciate it if you would come and help me make this event a success!

All of the necessary information is included on the flyer above, which will also be passed around in person, for those of you that know me personally. 2nd & Charles is a popular bookstore in the area, and will be sure to bring a lot of wonderful people. And when I say it’s a book signing, that’s just a general term. Below is a list of different things that I plan to be doing while there:

  • Signing copies of my book, The Month Of June (of course)
  • Signing shirts, photos, or anything else you might want to have signed
  • Selling copies of The Month Of June, as well as having an order form on hand, in case we run out
  • Taking pictures with passersby, and adding a small bio for a “Humans Of New York”-esque post that will be made right here.
  • Taking requests for poems, short stories, and the like

These are just some of the things! I’m still going over the possibilities, but there’s sure to be a lot there to enjoy. It’s fine if you can’t make it, too; I’ll be making a post detailing the whole thing. 

I hope to see you there!

     

     

    A major milestone has been reached

    Hello all, just a short post to tell you about an exciting big step in my writing career. Last afternoon (2/27/17), there was a pleasant surprise as my brother Travis informed me that a package arrived for me. I opened it and discovered that it turned out to be my first ever shipment of my book, The Month Of June!

    It’s a surprise since I expected it to arrive on March 7th, as the website projected. But now that they’re here I can get to selling them sooner, and be able to get more money to then put into buying more books.

    This really is a milestone for me. This started out as just a story I worked on in my notebook on my free time. And to finally see it materialized in front of me like this is amazing, and shows just how far I’ve come.

    You can grab your own copy of The Month of June, too. All of the information about it is right here, with links to different purchasing options at the bottom. 

    To all of my followers – Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Hello all! It’s just about 11 at night where I live, so I’m a little late, but still this post is worth making.

    This goes out to all the beautiful people who exist on the earth this Valentine’s day. I hope your relationships grow strong and powerful with each coming day. And if you happen to be single, I’m thinking about you too; I hope you have a happy and prosperous life, with or without your ideal partner! Rest assured that I’ll be sending you all good vibes soon.

    By the way, my posting should be picking up again soon. I have a big post planned for tomorrow next week that I think you’ll like, and in the coming days I should be posting some of my older work. I want to showcase some of the good ones, and I want to avoid them getting overlooked, if I can. I want all of my work to be seen as good as possible.

    I take suggestions for posts too, if you were wondering. If there’s anything you’d like for me to tackle, send it in and I’ll see what I can do! I love every single one of you guys, and I dearly hope that you enjoy my blog.

    The Month Of June–Now available online and in stores!

    frontcover

    Hello all! I have some very exciting news to share with you. My book, The Month Of June, has been republished and is now fully available on Amazon and Kindle!

    The book is a 112-page novella, best categorized as a teen/young adult contemporary romance. I wrote this back in 2013/2014 when I was going through a very difficult time in life. Hence, this contains a lot of sad or upsetting content that reflects how I felt during the writing process.

    The Month Of June is the story of a teenage boy named Daniel. He’s lived in the same area his entire life. Through the several ups and the very many downs, everything went on in his town; his best friend Marcus, his favourite frozen yogurt store, and especially,his bedroom. That all comes to an end when he moves to a new town in a new state. It devastates him, and he shuts himself away emotionally to block out the pain. Then, after the move, he gets to know his new neighbor, a bright young girl named June. He starts off as he normally does; shutting her out and ignoring her attempts to be friends. But it turns out way differently than he expected, and the move turns out to be an experience that he will never forget.

    This book was basically stagnant for a long time; I didn’t do much work on it since I had lost confidence. But recently, a few friends of mine read the book and strongly encouraged me to continue doing work on it. So I took the manuscript, reformatted it, and republished it to make it nicer, better, and overall a lot more accessible. I think it’s a very good book, and a good story that a lot of people will want to read! I hope all of you enjoy my work, and I greatly welcome any feedback or reviews any of you have.

    Buy it on Kindle – For all you eBook lovers out there. Buy the physical copy and get the digital copy for only 99 cents!

    Buy it on Ebay – Price is much higher, but it’s still an option!

    Buy it at Barnes & Noble – The only way to buy it at a physical store right now! Order it online, or ask for it and have a copy shipped to your local store.

    2017 Update!

    Well everyone, believe it or not, we’re already 1 week into 2017. For many, 2016 was a doozy of a year, with many celebrity deaths, a leap day, a summer Olympics, and a very heated and unpredictable presidential election. Now that that’s over, we can all look ahead to the new year and hope that it’s better than the last.

    First of all, there’s my posting. It really is a bad habit of mine to have several posts planned and partially typed but never getting around to posting them. That happened to me just last week, actually. I had a post planned filled with thoughts and predictions for 2017, what I think about New Year’s traditions, et cetera. But I waited much too long to post it; now it’s the 8th of January and the line of 2017 predictions has mostly worn off. I may still post it, but if not, I’ll just queue it to post during late December, so then we may look back and see how accurate my predictions are.

    Other than that, there are a few things that I’m looking forward to posting on this blog. There’s a lot I’m working on that I think will be very interesting for you to see! Among them are a painting, an ongoing fiction story, and maybe a contest or giveaway, in order to bring awareness to this blog. The new year will bring a lot of new content for you guys, so watch out for that! Posting more often will be in order too, and I hope to formulate a posting schedule, as well.

    An Upcoming Speech That I’m Giving 

    Hello all! Just thought I’d inform you of a big new project that I’m working on. It’s been occupying a good chunk of my time, actually, but I think that that’ll pay off eventually.

    I’m entering the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Communication Contest. It’s a contest where entrants are to create a speech, poem, or rap made to commemorate MLK and his life, beliefs, etc. You also have to (or get to, I’d say), perform your work in front of a panel of judges and, possibly, a crowd of people. The first place winner receives a $1,000 prize, along with an appearance at 2017 TEDx Wilmington.

    As you can see, I’ve taken the speech option. Admittedly I don’t have very much experience in public speaking, but I’m doing this for a few reasons. First of all, I’ve done some minor on-stage work in the past, and it went pretty well; I loved the feeling, I performed just how I imagined, and oddly enough, stagefright wasn’t a problem. So I feel like doing this and practicing my speaking skills would do me well. Second, the top prize. I could really put that money to good use, and the presentation at TEDx could really get me out there. Overall I think it will just be a very good experience, even if I don’t win.

    Look out for more about this in the future. If there are any more developments in the process then I’ll most certainly update you guys here! There’s a lot to be learned, and this is definitely going to be an awesome experience.

    More content for you guys!

    Hello, my dear readers. Now, I know that this blog is used as a hub for all of my creative content, and most of you guys enjoy my blog for my writing- and literature-related things. But that’s far from all that I do; there’s a whole other account that has a completely different scope of content.

    That would be my YouTube channel. For those of you who want to see more of what I have to offer, or simply enjoy more than just reading blog posts, this is the channel for you! I post videos from my daily life, sort of like vlogs; clips from TV shows and videos that I like; and also some gaming videos occasionally. One of the main things I’m working on is a gameplay series for the famous computer game, The Sims 3. It’s very interesting and if you’ve heard of the game, I highly recommend that you watch it.

    Other than that, my channel is very good for taking a better look at my personal life. It has several personal videos on there that I think you’d like. Please check it out if you get the chance!
