Introducing Merry Chrissy and the After Christmas Awakenings #RevealWeek! Plus Merry Chrissy 1 book updates

Wow. Been such a long time since I updated the blog. Its for a very good reason. Over the course of nearly two years, I’ve been hard at work on the sequel to “Merry Chrissy and the Naughty or Nice Truth”. Writing a book while working on a full-time job is certainly a tough task. I’m glad I endured the many tireless days and nights, adjustments here and there and the many illustrations that will accompany the story. This story as with all of my stories is a truly 100% individual effort. No publishers, no agents, no promotional budget and certainly no advance. Of course, its now up to the reader to discover the world of Merry Chrissy.

 Updates on the 1st Merry Chrissy book

In an effort to keep the storyline in check with the sequel and forthcoming Merry Chrissy 3, some editing was done to the the first title originally released in 2014. Most changes with the story were cosmetic and minor, nothing too jarring. The bigger changes made were primarily with presentation. Namely with the quality of the illustrations in the digital eBook versions. Illustrations now have descriptions for accessibility. The eBooks were revamped from the ground up. If you have purchased “Merry Chrissy and the Naughty or Nice Truth” online before, the the FREE update will be available to download now. Of course, if you haven’t purchased the first book yet, I HIGHLY recommend doing so. The sequel “Merry Chrissy and the After Christmas Awakenings” starts where the first one ends. Reading the first book is absolutely crucial to fully understand Chrissy’s second adventure.

Merry Chrissy 2 #RevealWeek

I’m introducing 4 new characters that will be featured in the newest Merry Chrissy adventure. Starting on Monday, December 5 and ending on Thursday December 8, a brand new character will be “unwrapped” for the world to see. On Friday December 9, the release or “unwrapping date” for “Merry Chrissy and the After Christmas Awakenings” will FINALLY be revealed. (Hint: It will be released in December, but sooner than you think depending on the type of device you have).


Creators everywhere, the world needs your stories.

The taste of defeat feels so bitter. The last 24 hours felt like a ton of bricks falling on me. You felt it and so did I. A lot of people are upset, angry, afraid and uncertain about what is going to happen in the next 4 years. While I don’t know what the future will bring, It doesn’t have to be that way. Make this time YOUR time. Be the renegade. Be the agent of change. Be the revolutionary. Let the world know that your victories, your triumphs and your accomplishments matter. Don’t be on the sidelines. Don’t cry. Don’t complain. Don’t like. Don’t retweet. Don’t Upvote or downvote. Put down the phone. Put down the controller. Put down the remote. Stand up. Rise up. Jump up and down. Raise hell. Grab your mic. Grab your laptop. Grab your paper and pencil. Suit up. Dress up. Lace up.

Inspire those without hope. Encourage those under pain. Empower our youth. Embolden the disadvantaged. No matter what and how you create, the world needs your stories.

Get going. You have work to do.
