The Sound of Silence

“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh

It seems, over and over again, that life wants to challenge you. That it wants to test you and that’s exactly what 2016 was like for me. A year in which I looked outward with great hope for what could come. To the possibility of growth as a writer, of fulfilling my dream of publication.

Keep on Trucking

‘m still working myself into a normal routine with the ol’ blog here but my main concentration has been on writing my manuscript. I’m making decent progress as I get the story hammered out. While I have been writing I am also researching, well, everything. From editors to agents & publishers, formatters, ISBN registration, paperback/hardcover printers and so on. Making myself prepared for when I get to that point I will know what I need to do.

I wanted this blog to be about my journey into writing (thus the name) and I promise to start sharing more of that journey with you all. It’s been an interesting trip so far but it is just getting started and I do want to take everyone along for the ride. I’ve met some interesting people and found out a good deal of information that i hope to pass on, to readers and others who are looking into writing their first novels.

I have added a widget to the right column with links to other author blogs. Make sure to go check them out, give their books a read and enjoy!

Until next time. – Brad

Designing Book Covers

have been thinking about, along with ways to promote myself and other indie authors, about doing a contest and providing my services in graphic design to produce high resolution cover art for other authors books. I think it would be a good way to help other authors out to insure they have a quality cover because as we all know a bad cover can kill a book before it’s even read. I’m still getting adjusted to designing covers, mainly designing only for mine and a friend but I am confident I can produce eye catching work. My designer website can be viewed @

Would any reader of my blog be interested in having a book cover designed? You can contact me @ and I can give you a quote. The contest to give away a free cover art design will more than likely launch sometime in July so keep a lookout on my twitter page and Facebook page for more.
