A Saturday in the Life of A.P. Miller

I don’t necessarily look forward to Saturdays — I really like my day job and the people I work with, so …c’est la vie. What I do enjoy about Saturdays is that I will typically have an entire day to create and hopefully type towards my ultimate goal of being a Pulitzer Prize Winning, New York Times Best Selling Author. I still work towards my word count during the weekday evenings (and even holidays), but Saturday is mine to do with what I like. To celebrate such a day, I’ve decided to break down what tomorrow will look like for me. Continue reading “A Saturday in the Life of A.P. Miller”

Ask An Author with A.P. Miller (Volume 1)

While I’m waiting for my novels to become New York Times Best Sellers, I’ve decided to broaden my horizons and skill sets by starting an advice column. Truly, someone who writes fiction and wields sarcasm the way a medieval knight would wield a sword to slay a dragon should be your number one choice for advice dispensary.

Broken Promise Records – The Extended Epilogues

You’re reactions to “Broken Promise Records” has been absolutely amazing — it’s made me very proud of my work and has done wonders for my self esteem!

I’ve Learned Some Things…

Have you heard? Broken Promise Records hit electronic store shelves this week! Buy a copy, and talk to me about it!

The process of writing Broken Promise Records has been a real experience; it’s an experience that expanses over years, states, cities, and who I am as a whole. When the book began, all I had to work with was an idea, and borrowed time. When the book was finished, I was certain that I wasn’t the guy who started writing the book. Life had happened in between the first words being typed on a Google Doc and the ability to purchase the book. At the very least, I can say that my initial efforts, while seeming insurmountable, did come to fruition. I finished the project, and that’s a huge ordeal for me.

“BPR” is the first writing project of mine that didn’t begin with a written outline, or careful notes. It started with a character that I identified with, in a head space that I had been before, and the common hope that he and I could change existing circumstance. It was a very surreal experience, how some of the characters came together and fell apart. Lori Marshall is a character in the book who kind of told me how her story was going to go.
