Sometimes You Need to Change Everything to Succeed

Murder & Mayhem – Own Artwork

I have to admit to being more than excited at the prospect of sending my first crime magazine Murder & Mayhem out to those that have subscribed either through my newsletter or Patreon. It has been a real labour of love this month and marks the change in my writing and branding. 

I have had a love affair with Medium for many years, but the cracks have started to appear; like an old married couple, we may well be at the start of a break-up. However, this leads me to exciting times, as it is a chance to start again, rebrand and write the way I want. It is also petrifying as this could mean taking a drop in money whilst I build back up, but I am ready. 

Don’t fear; I am not one of these writers that leave Medium five times a year; when I leave, it will be for good, and that is nowhere near at the moment. However, I have decided to build an audience away from Medium, and all my articles will appear somewhere else before being republished to Medium. When I started writing, like so many others I had no clear niche, now I do. 

My main niche of true crime is being branded under the title of Murder & Mayhem, which came to me whilst I was talking to my sister, funny how things happen. There will be a three-pronged attack to Murder & Mayhem, my Patreon for all articles, merchandise and loads more, my newsletter to keep up to date links to articles and my Facebook Group which will include links to my work, the work of others and news reports. 

Everything else I write on – parenting, writing tips, life etc. will now be on my 
Ko-fi, and I am saying goodbye to this website as it takes my time away from other projects. I am hoping most of you that follow me here will hop over to Ko-fi, although I fear many have probably followed once and never read a post again. 

So this is me, taking a risk and changing things to excel in the future, hopefully. It is scary and exciting in equal measure.

Thank you for all your support.

  1. Hey, Sam, you have been my bestie on Medium and my most loveliest supporter. I branded you my mentor. You amaze me everywhere you go. Wish I could follow you consistently but I cannot, you know. I’m here at wordpress this year, and hardly ever EVER visit medium. I know your plans will work– they always do because you are THAT good. My respect for you is consistent, and my love too. I know of a few places where I can find you. I’m taking the slow lane now but I will drop by now and again. My heart is full of you and the ‘girls’ always. I bless you, my friend. And if I can be of help in something, please don’t forget that you know where to find me. Be well, my lovely. I wish you miracles.


    1. Thank you my lovely I appreciate all the support you have given me and will always be your mentor whenever you need me. The girls are frequently told about you. Take care and stay safe you can always email me if you need me.
