Read full description of the books Pivot:
For some, the Devil introduces himself as an average man. For others, he crushes their souls and makes them bleed. For Jack Harper, the Devil renders himself a savior. But things are changing.
Once a loyal follower of Cyrus and an accomplished killer, Jack Harper now begins to question everything. There are new, strange forces at work that are intruding on Jack's kills, abilities, and very being. Maybe, though, deep down Jack has been waiting for this intrusion, and maybe Cyrus is not as powerful as he seems.
Read information about the authorI am a writer and student. I graduated in 2009 from Texas A&M University with a B.A. in English, with a focus on Creative Writing. In December of 2013, I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with an M.A. in English and a focus on rhetoric. For my M.A., I primarily studied psychoanalytic theory (Lacanian psychoanalysis), and my thesis was psychoanalytic theory applied to television - more specifically, how trauma is presented and resolved in the television series Boardwalk Empire and Breaking Bad. Currently I am attaining my M.F.A. in Creative Writing (Pop Fic) from the University of Southern Maine's Stonecoast MFA program.
I have had several short stories (flash and otherwise) published in various journals, including Oak Bend Review, Flash Fiction World, Linguistic Erosion, Flashes in the Dark, Separate Worlds, Every Day Fiction, and Pop Culture Review.
It was during my M.A. that I simultaneously worked on a very rough draft of my first novel Pivot. I published that rough draft with the hopes that reviews of the book would allow me to more efficiently alter the book, similar to how Hugh Howey published and revised Wool with the help of reviewers. That is not what ended up happening, however, and Pivot was given several awards and had 30,000 downloads before I could begin revising. These awards included: a finalist for the Next Generation Indie Awards, a Winner of the Indie Reader Discovery Awards, and a Winner of the eLit Awards. In addition, it was on the preliminary ballot for the Bram Stoker Awards; however, this is NOT an award. It is simply an honor. Pivot did not make it to the final ballot.
Pivot also made IndieReader's Best Books of 2014: http://indiereader.com/2014/12/irs-be...
Though Pivot did not go through revisions via reviewers, it DID go through other revisions and is currently with an agent. Yay!
The novel was fortunate enough to catch the eye of an entertainment lawyer and entertainment manager just about the time it was at 55,000 downloads. With that lawyer and entertainment manager, I was able to revise Pivot to a more professional standard, and Pivot was able to get an agent. Long story short, for the past year or so I have been revising with that agent, and the book is now out with publishers. The rough draft is currently at over 65,000 downloads.
In the meantime, I have been working on several other books and short stories, though I don't yet know what will become of them. Only time will tell!
