This past year, I signed with Creative Genius Publishing to work on releasing my first book. I spent the summer editing, developing a website, and rereading my manuscript countless times, so much so that the words took on a whole new meaning for me. I am thrilled and ever so appreciative of all of the support I have been given, from family, friends, and this community here on WordPress. Words will never be enough to express how grateful I am. I am also incredibly excited to announce that Phoenix Rising: Onward and Upward will be available in bookstores, through Amazon, and through my website come December 1, 2015.
A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by The Culture Trip, a website that dedicates itself to providing the best recommendations on art, food, travel, and more for big cities around the globe. Sam, would you like to be a writer for us? SAY WHAT? No brainer, absolutely yes! Upon completing my first piece last week, I decided to branch out from a listicle for my second and do a feature piece on a fitness studio in San Francisco, California.
I have had a massive case of wanderlust lately. It’s bad, guys. I have been feeling anxious and restless and caged. There’s that whole saying that goes something like we were meant to sprout wings from our shoulder blades. And all I know is that I can’t stay here anymore. I can’t stand still any longer. So I am doing something about it.
