So I began the process of building up physical copies of “Beyond Here”. It is a lot different than doing the ebook. So far I love it!…not the process but the end result. Outside of a couple of minor fixes mass production through Createspace and Amazon will be starting up soon.
As I stated last time I made mistakes. One of those things being using social media better. If I had simply asked I could have saved myself some trouble by focusing more on physical copies of the book. There was more clammor for this than ebook. Lesson learned. Not the last one either.
Short post for now. Until next time have a writeous day!
So it’s been a couple weeks now since the release of Beyond Here and…I find that I’m still learning a lot. One such thing I learned is that more people actually wanted a physical copy of the book as opposed to the kindle version. I’m surprised. Truthfully I doubted myself a bit. I always thought I’d go with a physical copy but not so soon. If I had done an informal Facebook survey I could have saved myself some headache. People would have waited for a paperback than purchase the less expensive ebook.
Lesson learned and taken to heart. Today I tweaked some things for the physical copy to come out and I’m waiting on the proof copies. Once they’re in I’ll make sure it’s able to be purchased on Amazon along with a free ebook copy. Then I’ll try to make a way that I can send autographed copies out into the world. This whole process has been learning, learning, learning!
Also I finshed typing up my rough draft of Nytemares and Dreamscapes. After letting it sit for a bit I’ll hop into editing and revising. Still hoping the trilogy will be done be December. It’s possible. As long as I keep writing. And I hope that you dear reader are writing as well.
Until next time have a writeous day!
After so many years it finally happened… My book is out in the world. Beyond Here is live as of this moment. I’ve been nervous, anxious, and a host of other things that mean exactly the same thing. But as of writing this I feel a sense of relief. Doing this taught me that I can do this.

I’m so grateful for my fellow inkslayers for being so supportive over the years. Hopefully you’ll continue to travel along on the journey. Not really sure what to say other than thank you, thank you, thank you. Until next time, love y’all and have a writeous day!
