As the title of this blog post says, I'm looking for help in raising the money to attend the "Out of Excuses Writing Retreat". Find out more about it here!
If you're able to help at all, I will be eternally grateful!
I am extremely excited to share the cover for the first full length Jax Jensen novel. That's right! Not just a short story... a full length novel that is set after the short stories. Let me know what you think of it below, it was made by my very talented friend Gary. Check out more of his work here.
I really feel like Gary did an excellent job capturing the hustle of a big city, where this novel takes place, and does a good job leaving a sense of wonder and a feeling of expanse that ideally is engaging enough to capture reader's attention.
What do you think of the cover? What are some of your favorite covers that you've seen, or made yourself!
Share in the comments below I'd love to hear input.
Thank you. Keep writing!

I post on this blog rather sporadically as some of you may have noticed! As I balance out writing with "the day job" I will do my best to post more consistently.
I am also posting my latest novel "Traitor's Games" piece by piece on Wattpad. Revision 3 is almost finished but reader feedback is exceptionally valuable and wattpad offers a good way to get granular comments and polish improvements on the manuscript! See the link at the bottom of the site under my connect info for more ways to view content.
In the future I plan to have a set schedule for posting about other writing-related things, or topics in my interest field such as Table Top War Gaming and Video Games.
Thank you for your support and feedback!
