Jeff Adams reviewed my first book, “Awakened,” on his podcast a few weeks ago, and he just reviewed the second, “Deceived,” this week! I’m honored that he would take the time to mention the book on his show, especially since the book isn’t really the genre they normally cover. And I’m thrilled that he gives it such high marks. Check out …

Sometimes it’s just about getting up in the morning and forcing yourself to do it. When it’s something you love, that’s pretty easy. But do you love doing what you love every minute of every day? Probably not. But that’s the price you pay to achieve a goal. Getting up and doing it. So, yes, it can be a slog sometimes. …

This journey I’m on to write a book a month for the entire year has been amazing so far. It’s hard to believe I’m a quarter of the way through it already. The main takeaway so far? MY READERS ARE AWESOME! Everyone who’s picked up the book, reviewed it, signed up to my email list, or sent me an email letting …

Maybe it goes without saying, but I’m being hyperbolic. Fact is, I did receive media attention this week—my first ever! And I’m super excited about it. The good folks at Jeff & Will’s Big Gay Fiction Podcast mentioned Awakened on their March 6 episode and spoke of it very favorably, even though the book is outside the family of genres they …

In writing “The Mind Agents” series, I researched ESP and was surprised by how seriously it’s taken in academic and government circles. Government agencies like the CIA have historically been intrigued by the potential of ESP in international espionage. The CIA approached physicists at the Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park in the 1960s and 1970s. Scientists there like Russel …

Well, I’ve been reading a lot of books about this over the past year or two. I’ve taken a some courses. The bottom line is that the business of self-publishing is hard work. It’s a skill, like anything else, and if you can’t afford to hire someone else to do it, you have to do it yourself. And that means you …

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be writing during this holiday season. I have finally cut the cord and no longer celebrate holidays. I don’t see anyone. I don’t go anywhere. Beyond that, I get very few emails. No one calls. I’m alone in my apartment. Many of the neighbors are gone, so it’s very quiet. It is a glorious …

Hi there. My name is Igor Max, and I’m going to do something big, bold, and audacious in 2017. First, I have to admit that I’m not much of a goal-setter. I’m not even a particularly productive person. In fact, some would say I’m a natural-born procrastinator. But I have a burning passion inside me: I want to become an …
