Self-Publishing: The Reactions

Leave a comment

Now that my book has been out for a year now I’ve been able to see how different people react to the fact that I’ve published a book. For the most part it has been positive, but it’s also fun to look back and see how people react differently over the years.

Re-creating Essence! [8.11.14]

As far as random vlogs go, I’d say this one is pretty entertaining! As you can see my family and I went on vacation to New Hampshire and since we were there we had to go visit Sabbaday Falls once again! This is the location that inspired the story behind Essence and is also where the photo for the cover was taken! Follow me on Facebook to see the photos that were taken once I upload them later on!

YA Ink- Grammar in Novels

Leave a comment

Please keep in mind that all this is said assuming you have the basic understanding of grammar. Grammar is very important in writing, but the point is you don’t have to be super uptight about having PERFECT grammar. And the more you write the more creative you’ll become with how you use your grammar. Semi-colons are your friends, not foes.
