2017 Year of Celebration: Butterfly Phoenix Business Shorts

I’ve been working on some new publications, “Butterfly Phoenix Business Shorts”, which can be found on Amazon, in the Kindle Shorts section.

I have a love for the craft of writing, and I feel that I have grown by leaps and bounds since 2011, when I first published Sticks and Bones – my first full-length novel. However, I have discovered that I enjoy writing for business and nonprofits just as much.

The debut Butterfly Phoenix Business Short was published on March 5, 2017, Mindfulness in Business, and reached #75 in the Kindle Store > Kindle Short Reads > 15 minutes (1-11 pages) > Business & Money category, within the first 24 hours. I was pretty stoked about that! You have to celebrate the small things in order to achieve the greater things.

Each month, Butterfly Phoenix will be publishing a new Business Short that will cover social topics of interest to the business community. Butterfly Phoenix Business Shorts are designed to be read in thirty minutes or less, to inspire thought-provoking conversation and critical thinking, surrounding the issues that matter most to business leaders around the world.

Don’t miss the April Short: “C-Suite Exodus”. Take a look at how the retirement of not only Baby Boomer executives, but also older Gen X executives (b. 1965 – 1973) is having an effect on leadership.

For those of you who are waiting patiently for “Prairie on Fire” to be released, I appreciate your patience and understanding. I’ve been intentionally holding off on the publication due to current events in the world, and my home state. I began writing “Prairie on Fire” in 2014, and I don’t want any sense of confusion with reality and the fictitious content of the story.

I know that law enforcement and the oil industry particularly have an interest in what the book might contain, so I’m going to clarify for you right now. The book has nothing to do with the protest events in North Dakota; nothing to do with the oil industry at all; and nothing to do with politics. Also, there is nothing in the book regarding the relationship between state or federal government relationships with the Native American nations.

However, with that said, it might leave you wondering what it is, and what could be so volatile as to start a “prairie fire”. Good! Wondering is good for the mind. It fosters imagination and innovation!

Until next time! Keep living the dream!
