These days if you want to write for a living then you need to put the work in yourself. Sitting back once published (either self or traditionally) and waiting for the accolades to roll in is not going to help sales whatsoever. You have to build up an online presence. This is a gradual thing and has nothing to do with how many followers you have on Twitter or Facebook. It is about your brand…which is in effect you yourself…and cleverly marketing it. Get yourself seen on other people’s websites. Write interesting articles of your own and put something on your website at least once a week you have written yourself. Comment on other people’s blogs. Become a useful and interesting source of content. It is going to be a slow road if you self-publish a book and then start networking from scratch. You can’t decorate the wall before you have built…

Bloodbreeders The Series

 BLOODBREEDERS The Series: is back and on  Amazon….


Book four, Lies Beneath London, will release March 2014.  I have recently become an independent author and have worked very hard getting what had out…back out.

The Toodlegnomes lived in peace without worry of the outside world and the many dangers that came with it for many years. That is until the dreaded Bumble Bee Dragons were ordered by their evil Queen to sneak in and steal the Crystals that gave life to the Toodlegnome village.

Bren Woodard had taken her share of beatings as a child in the privacy of what others called her home. Then as a teen she put up with having kids push her around, while most put vulgar statements toward her last name. Now in her late twenties she had taken to one of those very names, Woody, and paid great attention to all who had hurt her. Bren found her love for handmade, wooden weapons from the very yard stick that was used on her as a child by her abusive father, to the things she now carried concealed to protect herself. Little did anyone know that she had sharpened that very yard stick and planted it into her father’s chest when she was a mere seventeen, making others believe that in a drunken stupor, he had fallen upon it. None had reason to question her….
