I’ve been thinking about writing this blog post for a long time now, but recent events have crystallized my thoughts on the matter. It’s time I confess this TERRIBLE SECRET. This secret that I’ve kept ever since I debut as an author over a year ago. A secret that will change EVERYTHING. I hope by […]Read more "Confessing My Deepest Author Secret"
For the second in this most likely 2-part series, this blog post is going to be covering how I think about artwork in regards to the Restart Again series.

As the title implies, the official audiobook adaptation of Volume 2 has been released! You can pick it up on Amazon, Audible, Scribd, and any other audiobook website you use (it’s not exclusive to Amazon, so I’m sure you can find it wherever you’d like). I worked with the same company to produce this volume […]Read more "Restart Again: Volume 2 Audiobook is Out Now!"

I claim loudly and often that I am not a professional author, so obviously, any sort of rambling advice I could give on the subject of writing should be taken with a shovelful of salt.

Night twist to hit us before the clock strikes midnight. Even so, it’s also been a great year in other respects, so I wanted to […]Read more "A Year in Review: 2020"
We’re starting this one off differently, with the progress report right at the top! As of today (03DEC2020), Volume 3 is now officially longer than Volume 2. The published version of Volume 2 sat right under 119,000 words, and my rough draft of Volume 3 is now over 121,000 words, with plenty left to go! […]Read more "The Hardest Chapter to Write"
It’s a bit odd to sit down at my computer with the intention of writing a blog post, only to find myself staring at the blank page debating on how I should start it. I often find myself in a similar situation when I’m working on the main series; I’ll get stuck on a certain […]Read more "Reflecting on the Release of Volume 2"
I’m writing this post at 12:08AM on Sunday, November 1st. As of 8 minutes ago, Restart Again: Volume 2 is available for purchase on Amazon as both a paperback and an eBook! I’ve only realized now that staying up for the release was a bit of a gamble: Not only is Amazon based in a […]Read more "Volume 2 is Officially Released!"
