Lit. Update: Future Steps


New literary update.

The Whiteraven Net

It feels good to finally have my poetry book released in some form. However, the work doesn’t stop there. Now I face the challenges of promoting it.

As I already knew, “self-publishing” requires you to fund most of the work yourself. It gets disheartening and a bit stressful, but it’s what I have to do for now. At least I’ve accomplished one of my major life goals and can continue to build on it. It’s wonderful to be able to look back on the progress I’ve made, not just in writing but in life.

Now comes the constant effort needed to balance these new parts of my daily life. Plus, I’m renewing my efforts to get a part-time job to support my financial needs. For those readers who are also hoping to publish their work in some form, I highly advise that you get and maintain a day job. Don’t…

My beloved followers! A few things to read this week. I posted another notice up on my spiritual services website if anyone wants to head on over there and read it, if you haven’t already. Here I want to elaborate a little bit on the scarecrow contest that I conducted back in October. I want to announce the winner end talk about a few things while I have the time.

For most of my contests, I usually have a pretty good number of contestants. I’ve done a makeover contest a few times, Plus other raffles that I’ve had on going on my spiritual services website. I still have them and I’m always happy to do them because it gives back to the people that support me whether through coming by and purchasing services, following me on social media and actively participating there by liking and commenting. I love when people…

Announcement / Lit. Update: “Excerpts and New Platforms!”


Update from T.W.N.!

The Whiteraven Net

The latest draft of my first poetry book is complete! I am slowly going through a list of possible agents and publishing options.

Over the next several weeks, I’ll be revising T.W.N. a little more. Older content will be removed and new excerpts will debut! For now, I’ll use the artwork that has been on this site before; but know that when the book is released, any images included will probably be different. As I’ve always stated, no copyright violation is intended with the artwork I do share. These are simply pieces I admire and feel compliment the mood and theme of each poem.

I have also created accounts on two new platforms where I’ll also share some excerpts and special posts unique to those platforms. The first is Medium, and the second is My Poetic Side (also powered by WordPress). You can find the links on my “About”…

A life of Virtues Magazine

Hello readers! It’s been a little while now since my last post here. At 26,000 views on this site alone and over 2500 followers, I think it’s time that I start adding some more content. Especially now that living life to the full us is even more important than it ever was before. Don’t get me wrong it was always important. But with the events of our current time, it’s really mandatory for survival to stay mentally, emotionally, and spiritually happy. You can’t forget about your physical health either. These days, many people are finding refuge and sanctuary behind closed doors of their very own homes. While I refuse to be a part of the indoor generation, I’ve made my home a sanctuary too. Just last year I’ve started doing renovations on the house. Well I intend on relocating at some point, I want to be able to enjoy the…

Lit. Update, etc.


The Whiteraven Net

Revisions on poetry pieces are under way! I’ve chosen the basic arrangement and exactly which poems will be in this manuscript. I’m very happy with how it’s shaping up and might begin releasing a few excerpts sometime next month.

I have been working on furthering my education in the publishing field and will be sharing a couple of good resources I’ve found to this site. I have to divide up my time now because more priorities are demanding my attention, but I will still work to update T.W.N. on schedule.

New content has been posted to S.D. Feel free to check it out! A new update will be released to the blog soon with some interesting news.
