Hey everyone! My name is Mike Thies and I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire double majoring in Creative Writing and Advertising. Also, I am the owner of publishing company “Writer’s Block Press” which will be publishing its first book, The Trials of the Core, later this year. The Trials of the Core is the first book in the series, Guardian of the Core–a science fiction/fantasy series. For the next several months I will be blogging about the road to publishing and steps required, so I encourage you to follow along. You can follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/MichaelEThies and I encourage you to like the Facebook Page for the novel: https://www.facebook.com/GuardianOfTheCore.
