Jan. 1, 2023 – a Pause Before Leaping (and a Cover Reveal!)

Today isn’t a new beginning, nor is it the turning of a page. I have been planning all this for a long time.

What I am about attempt is to spend 2023 doing is neither guaranteed to work nor a “best practice” for publishing success.

But it is real.

And it does fill me with hope and enthusiastic anticipation.

This year will focus on hybrid publishing for me. On deck are self-publishing reboots, indy publishing of fiction collections, and submitting to traditional publishers. There is a lot of work to do.

Am I nervous? Yes. Am I sure I know exactly what I am doing? Hell no. But we have to try or wait to die, right?

I will offer short updates (besides the usual features here) to track my progress. Hopefully, some will find it helpful. Should questions come up along the way, ask them and I’ll do my best to answer.

Meanwhile, here’s the first project – a thoroughly rewritten, professionally edited reboot of my high school horror thriller, GENIUS HIGH, coming this month.

Here’s a first look at the cover:

Coming in January, 2023.

Stay tuned. It is going to be a wild ride.

I do my best to tell fast-paced stories with humor and heart. My fiction work is available on amazon.com. Here, I’ll write about the sources for those stories from what I read, watch, listen to, and observe to my experiences as a former award-winning journalist, high school teacher, actor, and producer.
