Moving to New Stage in the Game

I have decided to go a more traditional route with my publishing. I have been self-publishing with ebooks. But, now I want to go the traditional way of publishing with Steel Prison.

I created my Google+ account to attach to my profile at my job. I updated my Linkedin profile to try and get a new job. Both of which need some new connections. You can find me on Google+ here and Linkedin here. I look forward to hearing from you. While you do that…
