Scars of the Past, Dark Web #2
We all love the convenience of connected devices, but what happens when those devices kill? That’s the premise of a new novel, SCARS OF THE PAST, by Angela Hausman that explores how hackers use IoT devices as weapons of destruction, even death.

It seems like a perennial problem for indie writers–getting Beta readers. And, regardless of where you decide to publish your book, you need feedback. It’s better if that feedback doesn’t come in the form of bad reviews of your published work. That’s what Beta readers do–fix things before they go to press. What is a Beta […]
Writing dialogue was always a little hard for me, but Beta readers consistently commented that there was too much narration and not enough dialogue, so it’s something I’ve been working on.
