Got A Story to Share with the World? Writestream Publishing can help!

What’s your story?

Perhaps you’ve overcome countless obstacles in your life and would like to share the lessons you’ve learned with others. Or maybe you have a brilliant idea for a contemporary romance novel, a paranormal thriller, or a compelling mystery.

Well, what’s stopping you?

Could it be that although you’ve got the content or the concept, you have no idea where to begin? That in spite of your rich life experience and boundless creativity, you’re stuck….and stumped. For a variety of reasons.

Maybe writing’s just not your thing. Or, maybe you haven’t a clue as to how to find a good editor, navigate through the independent publishing process and/or use social media to connect with your audience. The consequences?

You — and most importantly — your readers are missing out. Because even though technology has leveled the playing field for new and unknown authors, your fabulous idea remains locked inside your head or hidden away in private journals because publishing and marketing in the age of the internet is just too overwhelming.

That’s where Writestream Publishing can help. Founded by Lisa Tarves and me in May of 2015, Writestream Publishing believes that everyone has a valuable story to tell.

Water Signs on Kindle for $2.99

WaterSigns2.jpgBetter late than never, my 2008 novel Water Signs is now available on Kindle for $2.99. It’s been an interesting journey, navigating through this brave new media marketing world over the past six years. Although I haven’t actively promoted the book in a very long time, I recently realized that 1.) My network of contacts, friends and clients has dramatically increased thanks to platforms like Facebook and Twitter, providing a large new base of potential readers, and 2.) Now that I’ve completed two ghostwritten books and have a handle on social media projects for clients, I can make the time to (finally) finish Sea To Shining Sea.

One of the many benefits of being an independently published author is that you can never really penetrate your market; therefore, there are endless opportunities to reach new readers. And what better way to pave the way to sequel success than to have my audience fall in love with (or in many cases, all over again) Water Signs just before the sequel’s release?

Thank you to everyone who supports my writing — I appreciate you! :)

Just Believe: Commonsense Spirituality for the 21st Century – Now on Amazon!


My dear friend and Writestream biz partner Lisa Tarves’ new book is now live on Amazon! Check out Just Believe: Commonsense Spirituality for the 21st Century in Kindle and paperback.

Read my interview with Lisa at Writestream Publishing. Here’s a brief excerpt:

1. Why a new edition to Just Believe?

I published Just Believe originally in 2012 through a large, well-known self-publishing company. When the book first came out I was proud that I had finally written my story, but I wasn’t thrilled with the finished product. It lacked my personality on the front cover and even the wording on the back cover wasn’t what I wanted. I was very much on my own with this company and since I had never published before, I needed guidance as to what my options were and how the finished product would look. I didn’t get that guidance. I was an account number to them. Now that I have my own publishing company and I know all the options and possibilities, I knew I could make “Just Believe” really my own and have it totally reflect me as a person. I also have two more books that will be part of this “series” so I wanted consistency in cover design and style.

2. What do you mean by “commonsense spirituality?

Something I say often and is a big part of what I teach as a metaphysician is “common sense.” To solve most of our problems or answer our questions, all we have to do is really use our guts and things become very clear. Plus, I keep it simple in this book. I don’t make spirituality out to be the complicated subject that many authors do. I want it to be something anyone reading can relate with and understand.

3. Are there new things readers will learn about you and your work?

Yes. I hit a wall in 2014 early 2015 and questioned everything. I questioned my faith and had to decide if I still myself believed. It no longer mattered that I had amazing spiritual and metaphysical experiences throughout my life, I questioned everything. I explain what happened in the Preface to the book.
