It's finally finished!
After 10 long years of trying to go the traditional route of publishing, I stepped up my game and started my own book publishing company called Bookmark Publishing and published my first work "Chronicles of a Boy Misunderstood". I found a great editor in Ellen Marrow who has helped me to get the book shelf ready . She was more than helpful in assisting me with muddling through some of the common pitfalls of first time authors.
In addition, she did not hold back in the criticism department; just what I needed. And a great bid thanks goes out to Jackie Brown (no not that one) that tool the cover photo, her son Travis Brown who stood in as the cover model AND Bishop Street Studios who designed the cover, bring it all together.
Here is a sneak peak of what I have in store for 2014:
