Take The Shot. Face the Penalty.

Athletics have been in my life since the fifth grade. I played tennis in junior high and high school. I played in college as well, thankful for the resources it provided for me to pay for college.

Awaited is on @Radish_Fiction

Fun stuff happening with Radish Fiction and Wattpad. Awaited, the second novel in the Wasteland Trilogy, is coming out on Radish Fiction. Just uploaded the first chapter. You might remember this book (series) when it was published over at Crescent Moon Press. Well, I got all the rights back, so I thought I’d put it out there again.

I hope you check it[…]

Did you guys enter my little sleeper giveaway yesterday to get a print proof copy of Absolute Zero? If not, check that out, because the book in print…wow, that was just fun to see. And touch. Okay, if I’m honest,[…]
