Voyage Dallas, an online magazine that fosters collaboration and support for small-business owners, independent artists and entrepreneurs, local institutions, and those who make our city interesting, recently featured me in its "The Most Inspiring Stories in Dallas" collection.
It's been a whirlwind few weeks as I continue promoting my new book, Write Like You Mean It: Mastering Your Passion For The Written Word. Besides the Voyage Dallas feature, just a few things I've been busy with include:
Guest on the Mayborn Lit Conversations podcast with Neil Foote
Book signing at the Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce
Featured in Journalism.co.uk about writing and journalism
Invited to take part in FallCon 2021 conference on October 9
Two more opportunities as a podcast guest in the coming months
Meetings with local high schools about adding this book to their curriculum
I'm bowled over by the support shown to me and my new book. Having this book published is an absolute dream come true, and I hope it ends up in the hands of every aspiring and veteran writer all over the world. We writers need to stick together. So many mentors have helped me over the years, and this is my chance to give back.
You can read the full Voyage Dallas article here. Below is a small sampling of what you'll find.
Q: We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
A: Starting a small business is scary no matter what, and you have to assume there will be bumps along the way. I was new to small-business ownership when I first started, so yes, there were struggles. But overall, it’s been as smooth a road over the past seven years as I could hope for. I’ve done my best to learn as much as I can along the way and do good work for my customers. And so far, that mantra has served me well.
Q: Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
A: I have lots of advice, particularly for writers. In fact, I wrote my first book, which was recently released on September 14. The title is Write Like You Mean It: Mastering Your Passion for the Written Word. You can order it at this link (https://www.amazon.com/Write-Like-You-Mean-Mastering/dp/1612545270). This book is very important to me, as it is chock full of tips, tricks, life hacks, etc., that are beneficial to all writers and anyone who hopes to be a professional writer someday or teaches writing courses. My goal is to see this book end up in every journalism and creative writing course in the country for high schools, colleges, and universities. I think it can help a lot of people!
