A little fun with a, ‘Hello!’

Hello!

Check me out on Facebook for occasional posts that aren’t always included on this blog. Such as the creepy nighttime photo I took on an old dirt road on Halloween night!

I hope everyone is as well as possible. I know for myself, sometimes I am, and sometimes I’m not.

And the writing trail continues!

My short story, ‘The Stump Maker,’ word count his risen to 3,400!

There’s something about bringing a story to life that fills my soul full of positive fuel.

The submission word cap is 5,000..so I’ll be sliding this one to an end shorty…a heart pounding end I hope! It is a horror story after all ;P

Cheers, Everyone!

I hope your day is treating you well.

Poem

I haven’t seen him since 2016
This is us

Wrote a story about him
He’s in the middle
I’m on the right
Phil is on the left

Love the man
He always said
We got to try everything once

That was then
I wonder about that now

 

 

this is us

This drives my addiction to write. And to write well.

Cheers,

poem

sat at the bar
they’re all talking
The other people

I start reading my book
and listening too

I’m in the book I’m reading
so I skip my part

There’s another writer
sitting at the bar
She told me all about her project
I listened well
it’s a good project

I see her when I drop my son off
at school

I wonder if she writes about me too

How to create an Amazon Author page?

Hello WordPress friends,

I need to create an Amazon Author page. I’m hoping a few of you can help guide me.

All tips and thoughts are welcome! (I do realize I go to amazon and click create your account. It’s once inside that I’m hoping I can put best practices to use by learning from all of you.)

-Matt

Thank you!

Wish me luck!

I’m doing it! I’m hosting a book signing event at a brewery!

February 29th, at Element Brewing Company! Which borders the town I graduated High School from. One of my best friends urged me to host a book signing. I was embarrassed at the thought of it, but I’m doing it!

It’s been great vibes! The owners of the brewery are all for it, and the support from my home town has been incredible. Friends, family, and even people I don’t know are already signed up to attend. I wonder just how many people are going to flood the brewery and have a beer with us! Megan, and even Gavin will be there. My brothers, and parents…oh it’s on!

I wanted to share the fun with all of you, because, you’re invited too! lol I realize many of you are in different countries, but it’s the thought- having some of my digital writing buddies there would be great, even if just in spirit. This is going to be one fun party and I don’t want you to miss out.

Seriously though, if any of you are in the Massachusetts area, and want to connect, you are invited. Contact me for the details.

Cheers!

(Some of you may remember that I was invited to a book signing at a bookstore in New Hampshire. I did that. It was awkward. This one is a completely different animal and I can’t wait!)
