Hello all. As some of you already know, yesterday was a very eventful day; I did my first ever book signing ever!
The signing was for my teen/YA novel, The Month Of June. It took place at a local bookstore known as 2nd & Charles, often frequented by interesting and enthusiastic readers. I was set up at the front of the store, to the front right as soon as you walk in the door. I must admit that the location wasn’t ideal, but I still went with it!
I saw several interesting people there, and sold several books. Nobody asked to take a picture to be on this blog, but I did meet a nice old man who told me a very interesting story about himself. I plan to write a short story based on it.
All in all, it was was a pretty good first experience. I really hope to do things like that again. And if you live in or around the area, there are still a few copies left at the store. Head over and buy one if you can!
Hello everyone! I am very excited, for this Saturday there is an event coming up that I’ve been waiting for for a long time – my first ever book signing!
This is yet another major milestone that I’m very proud to have achieved. If you live in or around the northern Delaware area, or will be around here this weekend, I’d greatly appreciate it if you would come and help me make this event a success!
All of the necessary information is included on the flyer above, which will also be passed around in person, for those of you that know me personally. 2nd & Charles is a popular bookstore in the area, and will be sure to bring a lot of wonderful people. And when I say it’s a book signing, that’s just a general term. Below is a list of different things that I plan to be doing while there:
Signing shirts, photos, or anything else you might want to have signed
Selling copies of The Month Of June, as well as having an order form on hand, in case we run out
Taking pictures with passersby, and adding a small bio for a “Humans Of New York”-esque post that will be made right here.
Taking requests for poems, short stories, and the like
These are just some of the things! I’m still going over the possibilities, but there’s sure to be a lot there to enjoy. It’s fine if you can’t make it, too; I’ll be making a post detailing the whole thing.
Hello all, just a short post to tell you about an exciting big step in my writing career. Last afternoon (2/27/17), there was a pleasant surprise as my brother Travis informed me that a package arrived for me. I opened it and discovered that it turned out to be my first ever shipment of my book, The Month Of June!
It’s a surprise since I expected it to arrive on March 7th, as the website projected. But now that they’re here I can get to selling them sooner, and be able to get more money to then put into buying more books.
This really is a milestone for me. This started out as just a story I worked on in my notebook on my free time. And to finally see it materialized in front of me like this is amazing, and shows just how far I’ve come.
You can grab your own copy of The Month of June, too. All of the information about it is right here, with links to different purchasing options at the bottom.
Hello all! I have some very exciting news to share with you. My book, The Month Of June, has been republished and is now fully available on Amazon and Kindle!
The book is a 112-page novella, best categorized as a teen/young adult contemporary romance. I wrote this back in 2013/2014 when I was going through a very difficult time in life. Hence, this contains a lot of sad or upsetting content that reflects how I felt during the writing process.
The Month Of June is the story of a teenage boy named Daniel. He’s lived in the same area his entire life. Through the several ups and the very many downs, everything went on in his town; his best friend Marcus, his favourite frozen yogurt store, and especially,his bedroom. That all comes to an end when he moves to a new town in a new state. It devastates him, and he shuts himself away emotionally to block out the pain. Then, after the move, he gets to know his new neighbor, a bright young girl named June. He starts off as he normally does; shutting her out and ignoring her attempts to be friends. But it turns out way differently than he expected, and the move turns out to be an experience that he will never forget.
This book was basically stagnant for a long time; I didn’t do much work on it since I had lost confidence. But recently, a few friends of mine read the book and strongly encouraged me to continue doing work on it. So I took the manuscript, reformatted it, and republished it to make it nicer, better, and overall a lot more accessible. I think it’s a very good book, and a good story that a lot of people will want to read! I hope all of you enjoy my work, and I greatly welcome any feedback or reviews any of you have.
