Dulce Base is a popular Sci-Fi novel of mine. It's set in 1975 and has a group of special forces invading a secret underground alien base in New Mexico.
Dulce Base Novel
This is a popular novel that I put out in April 2015. It's set in Montana in 1806 after the Lewis and Clark Expedition. It's usually ranked between #1 and #10 in Westerns - Horror on Amazon.
Colter's Winter
This is my 2015 SEO guidebook. I put one of these out each year, and how I do that is by keeping up on all the SEO, social media marketing, and content marketing news each week. Then I bundle that at the end of the year and make a lot of money on all the retailers and in print format.
2015 SEO and Social Media Guidebook
Here's a fine example of what content marketing can do for you, and looking ahead. 

I have an article on famous people in Montana on my site. Whenever any of them have a new movie or whatnot come out, people search for them.  

In this case it was Michael Keaton's new movie "Birdman," and I pulled in a lot of traffic off searches through CBS News and Google.
Targeted SEO Campaign
So you want to have a website, great!  Now what?

Figuring out what kind of content you should be putting on your website is tough. I'd recommend looking at your top 3 competitors and going from there, at least that's what I do when I work for people.

After that you've got to figure out what pages you need and the tone and style you want for them that will appeal to your target audience.

Remember, you want them to buy or convert or whatever.  I wrote a book on it and I have 2 websites that make me money because of it.

Let me help you today.
Book on Writing Websites
This eBook has sold more than 200 copies since I first published it. It's got images, a hyperlinked Table of Contents, and it's selling on all the major retailers...about 7 of 'em.

It'll make me money for years, and you could have a book just like it.

Experience

Writer

Self-Employed
Jan 2013 - Present
This is my job. I sit at my computer each day writing, editing, and proofreading for others. When I've got a little downtime from that I work on my own books. And lately that requires more internet and social media marketing than anything.

Political Candidate

Montana House of Representatives
Jan 2014 - Jun 2014 (5 months, 1 day)
On January 9, 2014, I filed as a candidate for HD 98, the 98th House District of the 100-member House of Representatives of the State of Montana Legislature. I'm running against another candidate for an open seat and the primary election is on June 3. If you live in Montana, please vote! Update: In a 3-way race I got 10% of the vote.

English Teacher

Various Chinese Educational Institutions
Sep 2008 - Apr 2013 (4 years, 7 months)
For 5 years I worked in China as an English teacher. I had to do a lot with reading, writing, grammar, spelling, and all other manner of headaches involved with teaching young children English as a second language (ESL). I was constantly using computers, writing for my classes, and grading homework for spelling and grammar mistakes. I developed my own PowerPoint games for the classroom, which I now sell on my website.
