Well.... I made a blog! Yippee!! This is my first attempt at blogging, I've always thought it seemed kind of pretentious but I was "convinced" (*cough* forced *cough cough*) to do it so here you have it. This website and blog is a group effort done by me and 3 of my online buddies since I was so adamant about not wanting to do it (and they were so adamant about it being done). So, here you have it, my blog. As you've probably guessed, I am writing a book (duh!). It's been a 3 year endeavor and it's almost done (hallelujah!), mostly thanks to the wonderful support of my friends who've read it and offered me praise and encouragement. The book (Origins) is about 90% done - all I have left now is a few additions, revisions and the final proofing but I have decided to self-publish... What that means: all of the proofing, editing, formatting, and artwork is done by me and not some fancy-schmancy publishing house, but it also means that I get a bigger percentage of my sales so I'm not gonna complain. One more thing before I sign off, the cover artwork and header images viewed here are the original work of Steven Askew, an amazing photoshop artist who does red and black wallpapers. The original image (as well as Steven's official website with more wallpapers) can be found by clicking the "artwork" button below. That's it. I'm done. Enjoy your weekend!!
