I KNOW HOW MY TEMPORARY LIFE ENDS (And a Free BookDoggy Contest)

My first novel, My Temporary Life was rejected by over one hundred and thirty agents and publishers. Nobody wanted to publish my book. So, I did it myself through Amazon’s KDP platform.

You Can Never, Ever Give Up On the Dream

I run a different promotion at least once a month. I have five books so it’s easy to vary my attempts.
