Greetings fantastic followers, 

It’s coming up on a month since Beyond the Code was officially released and I am on the hunt for reviews and I need your help. 

Anyone of my followers who reviews books on a website, podcast, blog, whatever it may be, I would be eternally grateful if you would consider Beyond the Code for a review. Please contact me by email, facebook messenger, Twitter, or Inkshares direct messenger and I will send you a digital or physical copy, whichever you prefer. or @BTCInkshares

And if you just have you’re fantastic self, please review Beyond the Code on Amazon, Goodreads, Inkshares, or Facebook. I am eager to find out what you think. 

Thank you all so much for following me so far. It’s been one hell of a ride.

Today’s the day!! 

Yes, today is PUBLICATION DAY!!

That’s right. Now you can go into most major book stores and ask for Beyond the Code. You can go to Amazon and order it right now. It’s AVAILABLE!!!! The long wait it finally over! 

I am officially a published author and it feels amazing, but I’m not done yet. Now I have the task of making Beyond the Code a success and you can help. If you haven’t pre-ordered Beyond the Code, you can go to any major book like Indigo, Chapters, or Coles, and ask for Beyond the Code. If enough people show interest, they might think that Beyond the Code deserves a place on their shelves. Not only would that make it more accessible to people out of the loop, it would make a dream of mine a reality. 

If you already have a copy and you still want to help out in building the books success. You can go to,, or Goodreads and leave a review or rating to let me know what you thought. The more reviews Beyond the Code gets, especially through Amazon, the more exposure it will receive. Reviews are an authors best friend. 

Thank you all for following me clear to the finish line and I hope you love this little slice of my imagination.
