A new start to our publishing!

We have been going to fairs and book signings this year and have really enjoyed meeting all the wonderful people of Iowa! IMG_20141025_103704

We have been to several places and even started selling cookies and baked goods for my daughter! We have three books completed and published with two more in the wings. Kai’s Journey 3, A home at last should be done by Christmas. We already have pre orders for it and I’m excited to get them shipped out.


We have come a long way since just having a presence on line. I still think the online presence is very important but it is also important to have one where you get to meet people face to face. Talk to them and give them a chance to get to know who you are as an author. It has been a busy time with attending classes and keeping up with finding places to vendor and do book signings at as well but I am really enjoying the whole experience! 0928141235

We have also taken pictures of other people at different events to showcase authors as well as other vendors at the different events. What a way to get a chance to help support different causes, different towns and charities around your area. It’s a great way to give back and get involved with people around you. I hope you all enjoy the pictures, more to come in future posts. We are also signed up for NaNoWriMo as well to help push the finish up of book 3. Stay tuned!

CW Shows Week 3 (Fall 2017)

Author Matthew Davenport

Supergirl 3×03 “Far From the Tree”
-This episode was about Dads. Specifically J’onn’s and Maggie’s. This episode played like two episodes wrapped into one, so let’s focus on Maggie’s first. Maggie and Alex are having a shower hosted by former Supergirl and their Mom Eliza Danvers. Eliza kinda forces the conversation to Maggie’s unpleasant past with her family and Maggie tells the story. It’s the same story she’s told before but we get a few more details. Prompted by Alex, she calls her dad and invites him to the shower, where he tries to show up and then bails when he sees the brides kiss. He’s so uncomfortable that it makes the viewer uncomfortable, but not in the empathetic way so much as the “it’s the 21st century, get over it” kinda way. He gives a really long political story about how hard it is to be Hispanic in America…

How dare you spank my child!

Anthony G. Wedgeworth


Writers must be insane. We spend countless hours pouring our hearts out into our work, nurturing our characters, giving our story legs to stand on its own merit, and falling in love with what we have created. Then, we let out a loud sigh of relief as we step back from it. Like any good parent would, we want to show others the glory of this new and powerful force of nature, also known as our story…

And then those blood thirsty vampire editors get their claws in your baby. Violent red slashes scar the face of your once well-crafted pages. Cradled in your arms, your anger grows at those who have no foresight, no imagination, no understanding of what you had created.

Hmmm…I might be a little dramatic, but I think most new writers feel like this on some level when their manuscript is returned from an editor. I…
