“You don’t say much, do you?” I asked, exhaling some smoke. A breeze picked up and blew some of the smoke from my mouth over to her face. ---- Logan is the protagonist in the novel Seed Me. Learn more about him on the wiki Link in bio.
Exploring new stylistic approaches with photo illustrations. A lot of the photo illustration work is seen in the monthly short stories and the novel YEGman. Thanks @samanthawalrodart for some pointers on composition!
Fourth read of the years no particular order. Writing Into The Dark by #deanWesleySmith. Mind blown. Writing process shocked. Time to rethink how I've been writing novels. Mind the cat, she's hungry as always.
One last announcement for the year: a new website! Check it out at konnlavery.com. link in bio. Some of the new features to the site are: - A complete publications list - FAQ page - Revamped Novel Page With Extra Goodies Per Book - A Wiki (Encyclopedia)
The wiki is the largest new section to the site. It is a living archives of the worlds, characters, locations, and more, found within the novels. There are lots of articles to add still, but it is fully populated with information from Mental Damnation and some found within YEGman and Seed Me.
The holidays are right around the corner. I'm taking holiday time off from now until Jan 8th for my graphic design/web development business. I'll be back on the 9th to take on new projects. If you haven't seen what I do, check out revealdesign.ca or look at all the book covers.
Be safe, have fun, catch you all in the new year! #author #graphicDesigner #websiteDeveloper #yeg #holidays #graphicdesign #webDesign #graphicdesignersofinstagram...
Another read this year, no particular order. Journey to the Summit by Saher Ghattas of @flawlessinbound. The inbound marketing book is encased within a fictional story of a marketing manager's challenges with effective marketing in the digital world, pitching to bosses who dont see the value, and providing actual results. It is primarily focused for larger organizations and for marketing managers as the sub title says. Still, lots of info packed in the book and worth the read if you're not sure where to begin with online marketing. Or understand the theory behind it. I've made notes, and I'll be applying some in the new year.
Beyond life the soul lives at Heaven’s hand. The judges. Sought unworthy. Here I am, in the land of the damned. ---- #mentalDamnation #darkFantasy #novel #2020 #theend #aurhor #teaser #fantasy #read #fantasyNovel #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writeOn...

Another read this year. No particular order. Factfulness by Hans Rosling. Digs deep into world statistics in various subjects, how to read stats, misleading news headlines, and more. Well worth the read to get a better sense of asking the right questions. #hansRosling #amReading #nonFiction #reading #bookstagram #spankTheCat #catTax #yegcats...
Fire, Pain, & Ruin. A @rutherford.manor novel. My upcoming novel for 2020.
It is in beta/proof and the initial feedback from the test readers is astounding. Here's some little tid bits about it from the official Rutherford Manor Facebook: --- Trying to live a normal life in the world of Rutherford Manor is difficult at best and sometimes impossible for the residents of the infamous household. Lisa and Louise Savidge are now young teenagers with a growing interest in the world, boys, and the family business. Spalding and Penny Savidge certainly have their hands full with these young and highly curious girls and that doesn’t include all of the trauma, family dynamics, infatuation, past loves, supernatural events, and ancient dark curses that they must all endure. All of this and MUCH MORE will unfold in our next Rutherford Manor book; Fire, Pain, & Ruin written by Konn Lavery - Horror Author! 😈
This time around our story includes RMU fan favorites including Spalding, Penny, Lisa, Louise, Nox, Lilith, Billy, Vivian, The Connors, and the mysterious Midwives of Rowley! Launching in Spring 2020. More news coming very soon! ----- Cant wait to get this out to you all!
Another read this year, no particular order. The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm. A fascinating dive into what love really is. He presents it as something that is grown and maintained. The book explores how to navigate love and how it applies to everything you experience in life.
