I am a Consumer

I failed my 2019 reading challenge.

I’ve been doing the Goodreads reading challenge since, well I think since they started. This is the first year I’ve failed. It’s a bummer for sure, but (Without looking to confirm) this is the first year in a while where I read a fair bit of business books. I’ve spent nearly a decade kinda burnt out on them after reading nothing but business books for years. As I’ve gotten more and more serious about becoming a full-time author though there’s a lot to learn about the business side (plus the craft side as well) and I realize that I read non-fiction much slower than I read fiction. Between re-reading bits, and taking time to digest things, it just slows down the consumption quite a bit. Which isn’t a bad thing….

Meet the crew of the Ghost – Zephyr

Meet Zephyr (No last name, because Peacekeepers). Zephyr is the First Officer on the Ghost. She pretty much just assumed the role after her and Maxim were brought aboard the Ghost by Wil.

See You at Mile High Con 51!

This is officially my first public thing as a writer! A panel at MileHighCon 51 I’m on a panel Saturday (the 19th) at 7pm. It’s about Self publishing and platforms like KDP, Createspace and Ingram Spark. Should be fun! I applied for a spot in author’s Alley but alas was not selected so if you want to get a signed copy of Space Rogues you’ll have to literally walk up to me and ask. I’ll try to have a backpack full of them :)   I’ll be honest I’ve never been to MileHighCon before, but that’s more oversight than anything else. I’ve never been a crowds person, so conventions are rarely my scene. Of course now I’ve selected yet another occupation where I don’t get to hide in a cave…
