Ten years ago, i found a picture of a blank book.

I decided to use it as motivation. I used that blank book as my screensaver on every computer I owned. I had it printed on my credit card. It's the image you'll see on my phone's login screen. Because every time I see that image, it reminds me that someday I will write a book.

Fortunately, the motivation worked. Along with a bazillion goals and a bit of structure.

Today I've finished two books. One fiction novel. One marketing book.
Feel free to read a sample chapter of either one below.

(Based on true stories, smashed into a novel.)
