Leap Into Indie Giveaway Hop

Paranormal Wastelands
Today is quite a magical day.

For one: It only comes around every four years.

And two: It's my brother's half birthday.

But finally: It's Leap into INDIE!!


Today is the day that Paranormal Wastelands and Can't Put It Down are honoring the hard work of the Indie Writer.

It's hard writing a book. I honestly thought it would be the easiest thing ever. That the words would just pour out of me. That the plot would be there right in front of my face. That it would all fall into place with such little work.

 What a load of garbage I was feeding myself! 

Let me explain what really happens.

You tend to forget words that you learned in second grade.

You get addicted to doing anything but writing. 

And you tend to self doubt yourself no matter what you come up with.

Ladies and Gentlemen, writing is HARD!

But when complete
after you have someone read it
you get a feeling that maybe the journey wasn't so bad.

And with that in mind I would like to give away a copy of the journey that I took.

In honor of Leap into Indie I am offering one digital copy of my novel, "Ryder" (a modern retelling of Little Red Riding Hood).

Just enter below! And remember to HOP!
