Three years of self-publishing as T. J. Blake

Dear readers,

Let me introduce you to author T. J. Blake!

T. J. Blake #Author

March 2016 marked three years into my indie author career, and the 23rd of August marked three years since I was featured in The Surrey Advertiser, with my debut novel, Endurance.


My time of self-publishing horror and thriller novels has been a real blast; I simply cannot complain about my experience with self-publishing what so ever. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed writing numerous stories for people to read, I’ve loved hearing what people think of my stories, I’ve been both stunned and thrilled about seeing sales across the world, and I’m excited for what’s to come.

We have a stunning collection of images in store for this weekend. I have been so excited over the last few days waiting to see what came in, and I was not let down. Each and every entry for this week’s challenge is unique and has an important history associated with it. Some are well known and some are not, but I don’t think that will make a difference. The biggest kick I get is to come across a new site and then go off and learn all about it. So thank you to everyone whom contributed to this week’s challenge. This is by far the biggest one to date, so keep them coming in, don’t be shy. If you have submitted an image before, you know the score. And for those of you who have not yet participated! DON’T BE SHY, I really want to hear from you. Check…
