This is my speech that I did for my second speaking engagement

My books are for sale (beside greats like Startrek and Spawn) at Carry-On Comics, which is a comic store in Waterloo, because of my perseverance and my belief that I can achieve whatever I set my mind to.

The independence and responsibility of self-publishing has led me to have the drive and motivation to promote my books, how and where I want. Also, I am going to go to events such as Toronto Comic Con and be an exhibitor in Kitchener Comic Con that I absolutely cannot wait for!!!!

As if that wasn’t awesome enough, I've also been given the opportunity to write a prequel to my series, to be included in an anthology, by a local comic book publisher, called Runciman Press, which I'm extremely grateful for and excited about!So, the thing that I want to leave with you today is this; always, always, believe in yourself.

This is so important, because it doesn’t matter who you are, or how many no’s you get, if you believe in yourself, then you can do anything you want, and if you want to reach for the stars, then by all means, reach for the stars!

Thank you! Have a great night.
