I hope you are doing well.
I picked up a Norcom Exceed writing pad today and a new Pilot G-2 07 black pen. I love writing with pen and paper, even though typing or dictation is quicker.
The tactile sensation of writing helps me with my creativity and exploring story development.
What is something you like to do to help your creativity?

First in the series
Blood Thrasher is The Savannah Vampire Novel Series with the first novelette titled The Devil’s in The Metal.
What could go wrong with VIP tickets to Blood Thrasher?
Unsuspecting headbangers and a great concert.
But…the band isn’t human, are they?
Break out the stakes, vampire hunters are coming for Blood.
When the sun rises, who will be left standing?
Set in 1989 in Savannah, Georgia, the series introduces the reader a fast action traditional lore style vampire story. I wanted the story to be fast paced and full of action.
I am working on the second installment in the Blood Thrasher series titled Blood Thrasher: Vinyl All Night. Here is a preview of the next cover! I hope you like it.
This indie publishing thing is a learn as you go. I’ve read several books, and keep exploring all of the vast tools to use for self-publishing. I am publishing through Amazon and love the quality of the prints. My books have all been published in the USA, but are also available through Amazon worldwide.
One of the things I am learning about it how to produce my own covers. I purchased licensing use rights for the image for Blood Thrasher and updated the cover with more of the feel of the novelette that I wanted.
Here is another example from my chess book.
As you can see there is a huge difference between my first cover and the 2nd one in this update. I love the look and feel of the knight with sword drawn in the 2nd one.
If you are an indie trying to publish, don’t be afraid to try things out. Even if you don’t feel like it looks like you want it to just yet, go ahead and do it.
This is a big one for me. My new book is out and it is a 90 day action planner.
This is the post I am sharing.
Bring in 2019 with a BANG!
The first step to making a lasting change is to set BIG Goals. You may notice I capitalized BIG. I want it to stand out to you. The word BIG is simple and easy to use, but it means great things are coming. Wrap your brain around your BIG things.
What are they?
How do they look and feel?
The purpose of the 5 AM Hustlers 90 Day Action Planner is to get you to take action necessary to make changes in your life. Set BIG Goals and go for them. I cannot do the work for you.
I cannot tell you that the 5 AM Hustlers 90 Day Action Planner will solve your problems. What I can do is share with you what works for me.
Now let’s get to work.
What a great day for creating!
I have been looking for the right action planner and kept coming up short, so I thought why not create one and self-publish?
So I did! Created this in about 12 working hours of time. The formatting was the kicker.
Anyway, it is a 90 day action planner focusing on goal setting, time management, and getting the work done!
Sent it off to AMAZON. I shared it and had a couple of people ask me about it, so I made a 7 day sample guide. Let me know if you want to try the system for a week. I can email it to you.
Tonight Southbound Brewing Company is hosting our first Savannah Books and Brews. The goal is to help raise funds for the Ronald McDonald Charities of the Coastal Empire (also known as the Ronald McDonald House, and more lovingly, the House).
The local authors are RM Hamrick, Joshua Vasquez, Winfield Strock III, Chip Lewis and I will be there as well 🙂
Books and Brews combines authors and adult beverages raising funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire and to promote literacy in our community.

Our goal is to host a meet and greet at Southbound Brewing Company on a quarterly basis to generate interest in the community and to raise donations to help the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire. Our first event is Friday, November 16th from 6pm – 9pm!
Each meet up will be free and open to the public. We will have a donation jar to help raise funds. We will host two to three authors, where attendees can mix and mingle and talk about books, enjoy a brew, take a tour of the brewery, and raise funds for a good cause.

By working with both Southbound Brewing Company and the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire, Savannah Books and Brews offers an event that other larger cities like Atlanta are hosting, promoting literacy in our community, and helping out families in need who use the house.
I want to give a huge shout out to Southbound Brewing Company for hosting Books and Brews to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald Charities of the Coastal Empire.
