9 “UM’s” in 1:45 minutes!

I’m seriously thinking about contacting Guinness World Records after creating this video yesterday. I am convinced I have set some kind of world record. My publisher asked me to make a quick video introducing my book, Burning Moon. Sounds simple enough, right? The final product is only  1:45 minutes long, but despite this, I managed […]

What I’m going to do with my MILLION Dollar book advances?

It’s Monday, so let’s play a fun game called ‘Imaginary Monday’. Today I shall imagine that I’m the next J.K. Rowling. I’m selling books like tasty little hotcakes and everyone is talking about me.

The 15th of March might have been an ordinary day for you. So ordinary in fact that you might not even have noticed the little sucker pass on by. But I noticed it.  Oh yes, I did. I noticed it because it was the day my 3rd book was due to my publisher. Perhaps some […]
