My Feature In Writer's Life Magazine
Sometimes you never know what opportunities in life will come your way. I was blessed to be featured in Writer's Life Magazine. I was able to connect with the editor of the magazine and was given an opportunity to be in the magazine for the summer edition. The magazine was just realized a week ago and it's one of the biggest accomplishments of my life.
Granted the magazine isn't huge, the fact that I'm featured in it, it's very fulfilling. The pictures are below and if you want to see a digital or print copy the website is this link here. Writers Life Magazine
Everyone wants to write a book. It's too bad a lot of you won't get it published...ever. Yes, that's right I said it and here's the reason why, you have too many distractions in your life. Let's just say I know someone and she has been writing a book for quite a while. This has been a process for nearly 2 years and I've published 7 books and she still hasn't published the one she has been working on.
This is not to toot my own horn or brag or be this cocky, pompous jerk because I'm nowhere near that. If you met me in person, I'm personable, observant and quiet mostly. I let my writing do the talking in a nutshell. I know what I'm doing in regards to my goals. So back to the subject matter of wanting to write a book.
Too many people will go to an author and say they want to publish a book, how do I do it? My first question is, have you written a book. When the answer is no, there's not much else to talk about. If you've started it, I'…
While I discuss a lot of societal issues in my poetry and in my books, there are so many things that we as people need to talk about more and bring to the forefront. It's no longer about talking to our family members about things, it needs to be discussed amongst our peers so we can better understand each other and make changes to the world.
The Struggles and Growth of a Man is a book about a man who struggles with what the world tells him and what his truth really is. While there is a Part 2 coming later on in the year, the focus is to make people understand that men struggle, we need help, we need guidance, we need to emote, feel and express ourselves. We need people to stop letting the world/society brainwash us into thinking men have to be tough and strong all of the time. That's detrimental to our mindsets and it keeps us from growing and learning from our mistakes.
The World We Live In Parts 1 and 2 is a series of 5 books that I'll be publishing about societal issues…
I hope all is well and everyone is having a great week and start to their weekend. I know, I'm long overdue for a new blog post, I was on vacation in Los Angeles for a week so I took sometime to enjoy life a little, and also take a mental break from the grind of my day job along with all of the writing I do. I wanted to share my interview with Writer's Life Magazine, it was a great opportunity to do this so people can get to know me better as a writer and author.
I will also be featured in their magazine in the summer edition coming in June. There isn't a definite date set yet but I will definitely keep everyone posted with that information as it becomes available to me. I enjoyed doing this interview and the editor LaDonna Smith, I am forever thankful for the opportunity to be part of the project.
This is not only about me growing as an author and as a brand, but also bringing more exposure to the great media outlets, young and up and coming authors can use …
