I try to get around to the amazing bloggers and writing sites out there. Here’s a collection of my guest posts and interviews. Check out what I have to say and be sure to explore all the wonderful blogs I’ve visited!

NOTE: I know I’ve skipped/missed some stuff along the way, so apologies there. If you see a guest post I’ve done and want to hit me with the link, go for it! All flash pieces/etc will be put on the free reads page. Current projects are under the books page. Everything Olde School and Kingdom City has its own page.
