April is National Poetry Writing Month

In honor of National Poetry Month, I will post a lot more poetry! I have mostly published something once every couple weeks but I’m moving to every single week and multiple times each week in April. Depending on the success of this, I may or may not continue posting something every week. Poetry Mondays will continue every week and Throwback Thursday Poetry will continue every week. I’m also adding something new. Haiku Hump Day every Wednesday; one short haiku each week. Can you handle all the poetry coming your way? 

Friday Fiction and Free eBook Fridays will continue. The free eBook for April is my most recent collection of poetry Men Are Garbage. The poems featured in Poetry Mondays are from this collection. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read each Monday, I encourage you to get the whole collection with 100 poems in total. As always reviews and feedback are always appreciated. You can leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads. You can also write a review on my Facebook Page or jump over to the Contact Page and shoot me an email. You can also follow me on Instagram and Twitter.

On a personal note, I will attempt to write one poem every day in April. I tried this a few years ago and never made it past day 14. My writing has improved since then and I expect that I can accomplish this goal. I also encourage you, if you are a poetry writer or want to be, to challenge yourself to write a certain number of poems in April. I might share a few that I write, but I will not share all of them. You’ll just have to wait until I publish them on my blog or in an eBook. Happy writing!

A New eBook Coming Soon

Another installment of the Dollar Tales Series will drop next month. This short eBook features four short stories and an introduction by the Morbid Museum Curator, Siris Grim. This collection features various monsters and things without names. Stories in the “Creatures Exhibit” include tales of aliens, genetically mutated humans, and giant turtles skilled in martial arts. The scheduled release is April 23, 2019 (Shakespeare’s birthday). Preorder Dollar Tales from the Morbid Museum: Creatures on Amazon for Kindle today. To get a taste of what the Morbid Museum has to offer, download Dollar Tales from the Morbid Museum: Flash Fiction on Amazon for free this Friday, March 22, 2019 only.

This is the third installment of the Dollar Tales series. Each of these short collections will be combined to create one paperback. With each eBook in this series, I have been able to strengthen the concept I have for this collection. The paperback will include stories not featured in these short eBooks as well as previously unpublished works. Reviews are always appreciated.

Welcome to the Creatures Exhibit. Visitors to the Morbid Museum seek the dark and twisted corners of the world. They are both terrified and intrigued by the unknown. Tales of killers, monsters, and madmen are curated by the Master of Death, Mr. Siris Grim. Mr. Grim collects the darkness that everyone attempts to hide and displays it within the corridors of his gruesome gallery. Who will be next to purchase a ticket and walk the halls of the Morbid Museum?

The Shop is Live

Today is the day! The Online Store for all things me is up and running. This is exciting for me because I feel like I’m one step closer to my dream of becoming a full-time writer. I’ll be able to afford all my expenses and can spend every day doing nothing but writing new stories and poetry. This isn’t just a dream for me. This is a calling. I honestly believe I struggle with so many things in life because I’m not doing what I was created to do. I was put on this planet to write and writing is what I will do.

What are some of the fun things you can find in my online store? For starters, this is the only place to acquire signed copies of all my paperback books. Not only that but they are discounted compared to costs on Amazon with a few minor exceptions. If you purchase from my store and request shipping, the costs are about the same, but it takes longer for you to get it in the mail. Why bother? Buying from me means you are directly supporting the author and you copy will have my signature inside. Totally worth it.

I also have a few options for commissioning custom poetry. For a cheap price ($1, $5, $10) you can pay me to write you a poem or your choice in any style. I am not commissioning fiction as even the shortest stories require more time to complete. Poetry doesn’t take nearly as long and it’s something I’ve been doing for over 15 years. I maintain all rights to these poems, but we can discuss purchasing of the intellectual property. Before you ask, yes it will be expensive. But that is not something I’m prepared for at the moment.

Prints of poems are also available. These are my original poems as 11×17 posters. Words can be visual art too. Only a handful are currently available, but I hope to add more if sales support that. My favorite part of this store are the T-Shirts. That’s right! I have shirts available with different titles of my poems printed on them. For the moment they are around $30 mostly because I don’t have any in stock and will have to order them one at a time as orders come in. I hope to lower the price once I have steady inventory.

If you wish to order any items in bulk, please send me an email or contact me through my Contact Page and we can work out a discounted price for the items. If you want to support me without spending money, you can always write a review on my Facebook Page, review one of my books on Amazon or on Goodreads, or tell your friends about me. Support me on social media and talk about what you enjoy. You can even send me an email saying nice things that I can use as a testimonial. Happy shopping!
