First blog post.
I’ll be honest, I’m not much for blogging; but from what I understand, it’s a good way to get the creative juices flowing and get me going to be able to write the next line, the next paragraph, the next page, the next chapter… the next book. It’s what I love to do.
I’m J, and you may call me as such.
A bit about myself: I’ve been writing since I was 15 years old. The first book I ever published was G3: A Story of Survival (date of publication: November 24, 2010). Please, don’t buy it. In fact, stay as far away from it as you can. It’s a horrid mess, if I’m being honest. It’s unedited, and hasn’t even been proofread. I was young, and as such, decided to put it out there for the world to see hoping to become famous and get some of that sweet-sweet self-publishing money. Obviously, that didn’t pan out, and even at $0.99 – I wouldn’t buy it if I were me. It’s just a dumpster fire that I’d rather let burn out entirely.
Since then, I’ve written a lot more; and my writing style has (I hope) improved considerably.
Now, as I get ready to embark upon my first real publication venture – The Fracture Point Series, book 1 – I often feel as if I’m standing at the edge of a cliff… and the edge is starting to crumble little by little. Whether I’m ready or not, this is happening. I’m actually putting my book out there. For someone who’s been wanting to do it since he was 15 years of age, but has found plenty of ways to procrastinate ever since, I’d just say that it still feels like it’s all a dream; but I know it’s not.
Oh, and before I wrap this blog post up, one last thing: I’m also a photographer. Not by profession, but rather by hobby/passion. So, expect posts on photography from time-to-time on this blog as well!
