Work With Me

sean1If you are looking for someone to write something, either for professional or personal purposes, I can probably help. If you’re seeking a manuscript consultation for your novel or memoir, I can definitely help. If you’re looking to navigate the increasingly complicated, but exciting world of self-publishing, I can give you guidance. I can also offer strategic insight on all aspects of the publishing industry, including how to query agents, how to pitch projects and how to avoid wasting time (and money) promoting your writing endeavors. If you’re trying to jumpstart or refine business networking efforts, or need to understand (or make contacts within) the tech industry, particularly the world of consumer electronics, I can point you in the right directions. I’m happy to give you my thoughts on the best approach to your project. To discuss options, availability and pricing, please contact me!

Murphy has cleverly transformed Byron from Lord to dot-com shlub. Instead of chasing minotaurs through labyrinths, he hunts for meaning among the cubicles. Not to Mention a Nice Life is a wry, acerbic, and terrifying critique of the notion that there is really nothing left to critique. Modern Corporate America is less an enemy than a state of reality. They have won. We have lost. Byron, like the rest of the 99%, is left with layoffs, failed stock options and the slight possibility of love. Read this very funny book. Like, right now. And then pour yourself an ice-cold laudanum.
