Fanboy Expo Nashville

Fanboy Expo Nashville 2016

I had a wonderful time at Fanboy Expo Nashville 2016. I loved meeting readers, fellow authors, and artists. A few of the movie and TV guests even stopped by to say hi.

Fanboy Expo will be in Knoxville June 24-26 at the Convention Center located downtown. I'll be joined by fellow local author Michael David Anderson. Stop by for free bookmarks, and I'll have signed Hannaria Series paperbacks available for $10 each.

Have an awesome day!

Before They Were "Overnight" Successes...

"Having the phone taken out was our one pitiful act of defiance that year. It was quitting before the Credit Department fired us. Tabby juggled the bills with the competent but scary expertise of a circus clown juggling tennis rackets; the transmission on our senile 1965 Buick Special began to whine, then to groan, then to clug and hitch...To top off everything, I was in the middle of a dry spell."

~Stephen King, Secret Windows

The Courage to Try--and Try Again

“Each of us has an inner dream that we can unfold if we will just have the courage to admit what it is. And the faith to trust our own admission. The admitting is often very difficult.”

~Julia Cameron

 

Navigating Industry Changes

In 1971, Michael S. Hart launched Project Gutenberg and digitized the U.S. Declaration of Independence--the world's first ebook.  That same year, the first Borders bookstores also opened for business.
