Fanboy Expo Nashville

Fanboy Expo Nashville 2016

I had a wonderful time at Fanboy Expo Nashville 2016. I loved meeting readers, fellow authors, and artists. A few of the movie and TV guests even stopped by to say hi.

Fanboy Expo will be in Knoxville June 24-26 at the Convention Center located downtown. I'll be joined by fellow local author Michael David Anderson. Stop by for free bookmarks, and I'll have signed Hannaria Series paperbacks available for $10 each.

Have an awesome day!

What's Holding You Back From Writing Your Book?

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.  Small people do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

~Mark Twain

 

Conflict & Building Suspense

"Every period of human development has had its own particular type of human conflict---its own variety of problem that, apparently, could be settled only by force. And each time, frustratingly enough, force never really settled the problem. Instead, it persisted through a series of conflicts, then vanished of itself---what's the expression---ah, yes, 'not with a bang, but a whimper,' as the economic and social environment changed. And then, new problems, and a new series of wars."

~Isaac Asimov (I, Robot)
