Author Profile: Matthew Mather

June 26, 2014

I read Matthew Mather’s Atopia chronicles right around the same time I read WOOL. I had just got a kindle, and was amazed at the quality of independently published books on Amazon. Atopia is one of those books. I think I felt comfortable emailing him because I saw he was from Montreal… a fellow Canuck! […]

Author Profile: Jason Gurley

June 26, 2014

 I first learned about Jason Gurley, quite naturally, through his cover design work. More specifically, his own covers (for Colonists and Settlers). He had just released his first two books (they caught my eye on Amazon), and I figured I’d pick his brain and see what he knew about indie publishing. Turns out, we were both incredibly […]

June 24, 2014

As a new writer, joining twitter was probably the best thing I did early on. I started tweeting about 6 months before I published anything, and in doing so, I met many of the contacts who really helped me along when I was still a total newbie. http://www.fuzzyhedgehogpress.com/ http://www.zacharybonelli.com/ One of the first people I […]

So Long Taiwan

April 30, 2014

My flight from Taipei left yesterday. I had been in Taiwan for the last three months writing and traveling. It was an incredible trip, and I got to connect and reconnect with so many amazing people. I taught in Taiwan from 2008-2010, leaving right after I graduated from University, and I still keep in touch […]
