Two Things I’d Like for My Birthday…

Hey folks.

You may know that I’m a writer and a podcaster. You may also have guessed from the title that today (May 19) is my birthday. As such, here are two things you can do for my birthday gift, if you felt so inclined. One costs money, the other is free, and you can do either/or. Or neither, ya silly goose.

Rate My Podcast

If you have an iPhone, go to PODCASTS and search “CREATIVE OPS”. Open the show, rate it out of 5 stars, and write a short review. Even if it’s a simple sentence.

Why? Well, because Apple notices when people leave reviews. When Apple notices, it’s more likely to show it to other people. So by rating and reviewing the podcast, you’re kind of helping me spread the word.

And I appreciate that.

Buy My Book

It’s called Switchers and it’s about teens in 1996 who face off against malevolent time travelers in a fight for their lives. And some of the time travelers are older versions of themselves. (No, it’s not a true…ya know what, sure, it is a true story (all the more reason to buy it (ya silly goose)).)

Anyway, the e-book presale is on and it’s less than $5 (at least for now).

If you like thrillers, scifi, and/or horror, I think you’ll be glad you read this one.

Alright folks. Don’t forget to listen to the podcast!
