I was thrilled to learn Imminent Dawn was recently featured in Appleton Monthly, a Fox Valley magazine with over 18,000 copies in circulation every month! As a lifelong Packer fan, it was additionally neat to be in an issue with Packers coach Matt LaFleur on the cover. Thanks to Appleton Monthly for the blurb about Imminent Dawn.

“Nice follower count you’ve got there. Sure would be a shame if its value were diluted.”

Take to the internet! Or so goes nearly all platform-building advice, at least all the advice I've heard since I came to the world of writing in 2013.

What I Learned About Writing by Not Writing in Montana

On the longest day of the year, my wife and I set off on a westward trek across five states and countless cities. From La Crosse to Rochester to Sioux Falls to Gilette to Missoula (and so many places in between), we took in the wildlife, played 90s Trivial Pursuit, and listened to the Hamilton soundtrack ad nauseam.… Continue reading What I Learned About Writing by Not Writing in Montana
