Author Platform: Getting it Done

Dearest blog readers,

This blog post is coming to you from a new blog host. You may notice that the blog has been completely revamped (changed). I’m excited to say that the transfer from blogger to wordpress was not entirely too difficult. The worst part is attempting to redirect from to, which I have not figured out yet how to do. Any suggestions?

This change comes in part from the wonderfully informative workshop by Casz Brewster from SnoValley Writes in which I learned that my author platform was not quite up to par. More changes, hence, are on the way!

Also, I’m working on publishing the updated/revised version of Ataxia soon (you may notice the new cover already posted here). Thanks to Dodo’s Design for the wonderful book cover. Bravo and well done.
