Hey and welcome to GarrettMickley.com!
I'm super excited that you're going to be learning all about writing!
Who am I to teach you?
If you haven't figured it out already, I'm Garrett Mickley, and I am a cyberpunk author.
But while building my writing business, I have been a digital marketer for over 9 years.
I've helped writers market their books as well as had many clients from various industries ranging everywhere from politicians to major music festivals.
And I've been published in the 2016 Autumn issue of the 2600 Hacker Quarterly.
I know, marketing is a bad word amongst artists! No one wants to be a sellout, right?
The thing is, we gotta make money. I see so many writers making great art that don't go anywhere because they don't know how to properly market their writing.
This makes me really sad, and I want to help. That's why I created this blog.
Here's what you can expect from this blog:
- Weekly blog posts that will help you with writing. Sometimes they will be writing tips, sometimes business tips, and sometimes marketing tips.
- Free email courses.
- Updates on writing I'm currently working on.
- Advanced access to some of that writing.
- Media I find inspirational to our craft.
- And a lot more!

"I always knew I wanted Garrett to write for my site, it was just a matter of finding the right project. Bringing a writer you hadn't worked with before onto your site is always a risk, so it's important to vet them and think about where their voice will fit on your site. Garrett was a consummate professional. He delivered his copy on time, it was well-written, accurate and polished, and he made any edits we asked for quickly and efficiently. It's always a pleasure to work with writers who listen to feedback and use it to produce a better product.
It helped us launch flagship content for our website that ended up being a success, in part because of Garrett's efforts. I really liked the research that Garrett did on the subjects we asked him to write about. Because he had done his homework, he was able to write with authority.
We got really good traffic on the pieces Garrett worked on, and the project ended up being a showcase for a redesign that was central to our overall plan for the site. I would definitely recommend Garrett's services. Garrett's ability to quickly understand and take ownership of an assignment means you get quality work without the hassle of having to check in constantly, or worse, deal with a blown deadline. Also a plus: Garrett is really skilled at promoting his work on social media and through careful search engine optimization.
I'd say that Garrett is a creative, experienced writer with a can-do attitude who will take a writing assignment from inception to completion with a minimum amount of hassle on your part. He's always willing to go the extra mile to make sure you get the copy you need." - Claes Bell, Bankrate.com
