EDIT: I neglected to include my stream hours! DUH!

Session 1: 9am – 1pm AMA + Read-a-Loud Chapters + More

Session 2: 2pm – 6pm Create a Character + Craft a Stonehaven Fable + Read-a-Loud Chapters + More

Giveaways in BOTH Sessions!


On April 19th my book, of which I toiled over for nearly two years, will be released to the masses who pre-ordered it and those who order it on the day. I still can’t believe it. But the moment is here and I thought what better way to celebrate the occasion than with all of YOU!

On Friday, April 19th I’ll be streaming Live on Twitch All Day. Well, not exactly all day. I do need to eat some lunch in the middle, but I will stream for 4 hours in the morning and another 4 hours in the afternoon. Why? I know there are many people on the East Coast and outside of the United States who follow me or would just like to be there when I celebrate. I hope being on for an extended period of time will make it possible for those folks to do so.

My stream will not be an empty-handed one. In fact, I want to reward all of you who come to my stream, stay to watch, and purchase a print copy! What better way than with a few giveaways. And to ensure as many viewers (and followers and subscribers) get an opportunity to partake of the giveaways I have planned, here is an outline of how it will go:

Author Book Plate (Personalized & Signed)

  • The first viewer to type “Congratulations” in chat when you see my face on stream.
  • Every 30min (as long as there are 10+ viewers) via Random Selection
  • Milestones (Reach 500 Followers + Every 5 NEW Followers till I reach 550 Followers) If I hit 500 followers or other milestones between now and April 19th I will adjust these numbers
  • Proof-of-Purchase (Print Book Only) If you email me a copy of your order I will send you a signed author bookplate! (First 10 Only)

Novella Beta Opportunity
If you would like a sneak peek at my next release, and want to help me make it the best it can be, I will be giving away the e-book of my first novella (20K+ words) every 30min we have 15+ viewers!

Bonus Print Book (Personalized & Signed)

  • 1 Print Book every 4hr segment (Last 15min of streams 1 & 2 via random selection)
  • 1 Print Book for every 5 $5 Twitch Subscriber (Subscribers Only Giveaway)
  • 1 Print Book for every 10 NEW Patrons (any level) (Patreon Subscribers Only Giveaway)

There might be a few more Giveaways to come in the next 2 weeks (if I can think of any that won’t break my bank account). If there are any I will update this post. In the meantime, I hope you will consider joining my stream, clicking the Follow button on my stream, and if you can afford it, purchasing a print copy or becoming a patron (at any level).

And if you’re not on my email list already, doing so will get you my debut novel for FREE as well as other cool news and updates just once a month! Just between you and me, the subscribers of my free monthly newsletter probably get the latest information and a good one to two weeks before anyone else! Just sayin’…
