I Am Now A Fanbase Press Staffer

Of the many things I've done as a writer, I cannot accurately express how much it means to become a part of the Fanbase Press staff. A little over a year ago, I wrote my first comic book review and it's been an amazing ride since that point.

I have had the opportunity to read awesome stories, look at tons of unique artwork, and realize my life as a writer is the most satisfying professional endeavor I could ever hope to achieve. I'm thrilled to say I am now a Senior Contributor/Creator of the Geeky Parent Guide, and "as is the case with all of Fanbase Press' staff members, [I] will also be taking on a critical role within the realm of geekdom." I have also been given the responsibility, in this additional role, as Guardian of Fantasia, and I'll make sure, as part of the Fanbase, that they'll never know The Nothing.

Thank you, Fanbase Press, for letting me be a part of your world.

Continued Excitement About Fanbase Press

For the past three months, I've been a Guest Contributor for Fanbase Press (FP). Not only have I been absolutely thrilled to be involved with FP as a writer, I have enjoyed reading other people's reviews, listening to their many podcasts, and interacting with several of them.

Knowing how much I enjoy being a part of this fun community, I am ecstatic to announce I am now a regular contributor. I can remove the "guest" part, and happily say I am a Fanbase Press Contributor. I even have a bio - how cool is that?

In one of my happiest shouts, "WOOHOO!!!"

Experiences That Changed Me: My Work For Fanbase Press

Celebrating fandoms . . . and creating new ones.

As a writer, I've had many moments where I've been overcome with happiness, stress, and an overwhelming wonder of if I will be successful at my craft.

I guess sometimes I question the things I once viewed as successful, such as self-publishing my first book, and then wonder if I'm advancing enough to that goal of becoming a full-time writer. Because that's the dream. Well, I've been given an amazingly wonderful opportunity recently, and it has been absolutely one of the best experiences I have ever enjoyed professionally.

I was accepted as a Guest Contributor for Fanbase Press. If you don't know who they are, then think of Nerdist or Geek & Sundry, and you'll get the picture. They are all about sharing the "geek world" with everyone, and they're also helping promote creators and their work. It has been an amazing ride, despite it only being a month and a half, and I am so grateful for the opportunity.

If you're interested in seeing what I've done for them so far, please check out my Guest Contributor tab on this page, or go to my page listed on Fanbase Press. They are currently doing the whole comic-con thing this weekend, so you can catch them at Stan Lee's LA Comic Con if you're in the area.

Here are a few of the many things they have going on:

Fanbase Press not only rocks awesome geeky goodness, they promote a widespread message of acceptance for any and all about anything. That's a very good thing and one of the reasons I love being a part of it.
