As a full time writer. Actually, it was September 17. The day, one year ago, that my regular paychecks stopped, my cell phone allotment ceased, my ridiculously generous healthcare insurance ended, and “the man” quit paying for my car (and gas). ONE OF THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE! Life has been hectic…no doubt about that…but I have never once looked back. Probably because I don’t have the time! Here’s what I’ve accomplished in the past year. Published 423,772 words broken down into: 3 Novels—The Perseid Collapse, Event Horizon, Point of Crisis 3 Novellas for Kindle Worlds—First Contact, Last Betrayal and Sanctuary (coming very soon) 1 Non-fiction collaboration on personal readiness and disaster preparedness—Practical Prepping: No Apocalypse Required. Pursued several franchising opportunities: Re-edited and re-issued 2 books—The Jakarta Pandemic and Black Flagged. Launched 4 audiobooks through Audible—The Perseid Collapse, Event Horizon, Point of Crisis and Black Flagged Redux. The rest of the Black Flagged franchise is on the way. Signed a deal with Amazon Crossing to translate and publish The Jakarta Pandemic in German. E-book and hardcopy. Signed a deal to translate The Perseid Collapse into German. I’ll publish it as an e-book. Sounds like no time for fun and games, right?
