The Thousand Dedicated Followers

I’m in the process of building a following for myself as an indie writer/producer. If you’re following me on Twitter (I’m @tmorgan_2100) you can track how I’m doing. As of the time of this writing I’m closing on my GraniteCon goal of 1500 followers. I’m pretty happy about this. I actually shut my Twitter account […]
