Just a little while ago I was talking to my best friend Jessica Werner about the software that we use to write our novels. If you have been in the writing world long enough, you know there are quite a lot of options out there ranging from the simple pen and paper to the complicated and advanced Scrivener.

It dawned on me that I haven’t shared the program that I use to write my novels and novellas and why I like it. So, to rectify that mistake, here is my discussion and review of Ywriter6.

A Simple Guide: Bitcoin – Released!

A Simple Guide: Bitcoin

I love computers, anyone who knows me can attest to that. With my first initial introduction to bitcoin back in 2015, I decided to take my experience and write a simple guide to Bitcoin and how it actually works.

 

So, I am happy to introduce to you A Simple Guide: Bitcoin.

Interested? Why not grab a copy then! If you want to keep up with other works that I’ve done or future projects, you can do so by joining my spam-free newsletter that comes out once a month.

I have the opportunity of doing both, a freelance writer who writes blog posts, listicles, and articles for companies and an author who writes stories and novellas. They are two totally separate jobs and they still make me sweat blood and tears.

Goodbye Smashwords, I’m through.

My new book Jassik Creed & The Meek Prince will be the last book I will be uploading to Smashwords.com. This tickled the back of my mind for a while, but after several infuriating attempts to get my book on to their market, I’m fed up with them and will no longer be using their services. Let me explain.

I will also be discussing a different platform that I am going to, and it might sound like product placement, but it isn’t. I’m seriously pissed with the struggle I have gone through.
