I’ve been meaning to update the map on my 2014 release Stone Ram. Why you ask? Well the original map’s banner was cut off. Also the sun diagram was essentially the same sun used on the Argentinian flag. Nothing against that flag, as it’s lovely, but I was looking for some originality here. Lastly, I wanted to add some more terrain to the map and make the Kingdom of Rek’s boundries more tighter, so in the southwestern section you’ll notice the addition of the Jagga Plains.

Do you have expectations? Sure you do. We all do. Expectations exist as markers for out success. In the materialistic hierarchy that we live in it’s easy to start comparisons between yourself and the guy or gal down the street.
But what about unreal expectations, and chasing success so hard that it becomes a task to take pleasure in other things? What do we do about that?
Well I’m glad you asked. If you’re trying to hard, then I’ve got news for you, you’re burdening yourself with added pressure. And comparing yourself to another’s success is just going to get you down. Sure there are some people out there who get motivated by knowing that they’re at the bottom and want to work their way up, but obsession with success and unrealistic expectations is not the mindset to subscribe to.
Of course it’s important to measure your success, but instead of worrying about others, why not try competing with yourself? It will take the edge off and make your chosen task at hand more enjoyable.
Compete with your former self. Figure out what it did wrong, and work on fixing that. This way your focus is more inward and free of unnecessary distractions.
Besides, worrying about what your rivals are doing is not the key to improving yourself, instead work on improving more each day by analyzing your mistakes and seeking out the right information to get you going in the right direction.
I’ll be taking a break from social media starting September 1st to work on my upcoming novel. But I won’t disappear completely, there will be updates on what I’m doing here on the blog.
I recently invested some change in getting more exposure for Guns And Dogs, my newest release. You’re probably asking did it work?
Here’s my answer.
I went into it with low expectations, after all, most books don’t sell millions of copies overnight. Not unless you’re JK Rowling of course. But the object of gaining exposure through paid advertising is investing for the future.
Sure, you may not sell a ton now, but the seeds planted through this service will most likely help in the future. Of course this isn’t a guarantee, but then again, what is?
So here’s my final verdict: if you have the money and the company is legit, you should go for it. But just remember, good things take time, so make sure to be patient.
Here’s a quote from my new YA novel Guns And Dogs.
“Happiness isn’t something you pick up at the grocery store, nor is it something that comes to you at a certain age. It’s a trait that lives within all of us, and it flourishes when you begin appreciating the things in life we take for granted.”
I’ve put my new YA/Science Fiction novel Guns And Dogs on sale for 99 cents. This promo runs through the end of June on all amazon retail websites worldwide. Click HERE to read a sample of Guns And Dogs.
