Writing, contrary to my personal wishes, is a lot of hard work. the thing is, it isn't always MY hard work that shows up in the final draft,
I have been blessed with amazing editors, both though Untried Reads, and amongst those brave souls who act as my beta readers. Beta Readers, by the way, are the most wonderful human beings on the face of the planet, as they get to wade through my spelling errors, laughable grammar, and gaping plot holes. All of this, just to hold the honor of being the first to read my books.
Production is one of those words that befuddles and frightens me, but when you have a great team, such as the people at Untried Reads, that's okay - because I always know that the end product, from amazing cover design to eye-catching layout, is going to be perfect.
And, lastly, I want to say a special thank you to my family. My wonderful wife (who happens to suffer as a beta-reader, herself) and son, who put up with my self-doubt and humongous ego in equal doses, who encourage and cheer me on, and are so patient as i tirelessly bounce ridiculous idea after ridiculous idea off of them. To my mom and aunt who raised me and encouraged me to pursue this crazy line of work, starting at the robust age of five!
Thank you all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
