Hopes and Dreams

Greetings reader, and welcome to my blog

As a child I would often daydream, about the most fantastic and amazing things. At night my dreams were no different, perhaps even more intense. Wizards, ninjas, magic and the like… you name it. I knew from an early age that I had quite a big imagination, and made no attempt to hide that fact.

As a teen, I was introduced to the power of creative writing and its positive influence in my life. Writing offered a way to channel my imagination and make it almost real, in a way that others could experience. For the most part, this was enough fulfillment for me. To be able to write a story and present it to my mother was all the validation I needed. Still, in the back of my mind, I was curious as to how I could ever present my stories to the world, the same way other writers and creators have done.

Fast forward to the 2000’s, and self-publishing has made a way for me to potentially show my imagination to the world. Fast forward to 2015, and upon my first and truly completed novel, I was able to bring one of my most treasured stories to the world. This novel is called: Gideon and the Crimson Samurai. Within it lies the young and pure imagination that I had as a child.

Fast forward to 2018, I now have seven titles available on Amazon – something I wasn’t sure that I ever could accomplish. Staying true to my hopes and dreams, I managed to make them come true.

The next step for me now, is to keep pushing the boundaries of my imagination. My creativity has evolved, which means so should my work. As a final appreciation to my younger self that continued to hold onto his hopes and dreams, I prepared an online book tour that will focus solely on Gideon and the Crimson Samurai. Interviews, guest posts and reviews from many notable bloggers of the online world will be involved.
