Spread the word!
While you think about it, here’s a quick glimpse to where I’ve been the past few days (since I clearly haven’t been here on my own site much).
A couple weeks back I covered Run For Your Lives Pittsburgh and turned my experience and interviews into a feature for Patheos.
Speaking of Patheos, they’re running a special two week book club for Undead. Check it out!
A couple of great guys also interviewed me this week.

Finally, I got to do my first ever book signing! Thanks so much to everyone who’s supported me.
Tell me about your week
Even though my new book Undead is officially out the real action starts in October, and I would love to form a team of social media-ites to help share the news in some fun and creative ways.
Okay, you will get these exclusive benefits:
What will you need to do?
If you are interested in being a member of the Undead Book Launch Team please e-mail me with the following information:
We’re past the deadline for this street team stuff but there are still important ways to contribute, a few of which only take a few seconds. CHECK THIS OUT to learn more.
A number of people read my article 10 Things No One Told Me About the Publishing Process this past weekend over at social media Jedi Kristen Lamb’s terrific site. Of course, that info is secondary to the primary step of getting published in the first place.
Since many people know that I have a book coming out, I’ve been asked two questions more than any:
So I thought I would just take this space to help answer that second question about how to become a published author. Remember, I’m hardly an expert as I go through this process for the first time, but I did spend years writing and studying the business.
Also, I’m answering those who want to be published traditionally by a publisher that buys the book and prints it, so this list isn’t about how to self publish.
One of my favorite movies of all-time is Back to the Future. Yet for all the memorable scenes in that movie, today I’m thinking of one of the more obscure parts.
Just about everybody loves George McFly, Marty’s father who goes from whipping boy loser at the beginning of the film to successful author at the end. I always remembered the scene late in the film when Marty returns to present day and his dad George is opening a very special box that’s just arrived.
His brand new published book.
When I first saw BTTF I had no clue I would ever be a writer let alone publish a book one day, but I always thought how amazing that would feel to open a shipment of your book that you wrote.
Well, today I got to have my George McFly moment.
This space feels so naked in all its tabula rasaficaton. I’m sure we’ll fill in some pages before too long. For now, I’m just glad to be back in the blogging world. This time around will be much different than the stuff I’ve done in years past. Most of all, I’m more focused now.
But I’ve been around long enough to know how boring these inaugural “Hey I started a blog!” posts are. I’ve written lots of new content that is on its way. You can head on over to my Contact page to learn how to keep up with future posts. Another option is to find out a little about me on the About page.
Thanks for being here.
