I'm Stepping Down From Management, Once & For All To Pursue My Passionate Career.

The time has come where I now need to focus on me. Just the other day, Thursday, I finally gave my notice to a position that I truly love as a Food & Beverage Manager at a Nevada casino, where I’ve decided to leave by the end of the year.

The truth is, I need to flourish both as an artist and as an entrepreneur. I write erotic stories, and I haven’t been able to keep up with my work, due to the fact that I’ve been putting too much effort and time with my current job. The time has now come for me to move on, where at the end of the year I’m stepping down from my beloved position, only to pursue my passion as an author and publisher.

I remember the lyrics of what rapper Eminem said in his 2003 soundtrack to 8 Mile, respectively.

If you had one shot, or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted… in one moment, would you capture it… or let it slip?

And now it’s come to the conclusion to take this opportunity to make something more than what I truly have. I want to be an awesome author, even a selling one for both myself and publishers, and I want to be known as the man behind and emerging erotic media site – AfterDark Online.

Life’s too short. The worse thing anyone could do is both squander the opportunity or not take the opportunity to fulfill that long-lived dream.

I’m  taking it; ready for what it brings. I know and I’m confident to say I can do this, and I’m going to lose myself into erotic romance writing and AfterDark Online.

People are going to think that I'm crazy, but if you truly believe in your heart that you can make it, accomplish it, then I say go for it. Which that is exactly what I'm doing -- going for it!


  1. Yeah, it's crazy to leave a great paying job and all the benefits, including medical insurance, during economic times like these. That said, you only have one life just like the rest of us and not everyone has a dream. But you do and you have a life partner that clearly supports your desire to pursue your dreams. You can always go back to work, doing something, but you'll miss all your dreams if you don't take that first swing. You gotta hit it to get it, Ray!! Go for it, baby!! Good Luck!! xo

  2. It's crazy and brave too. I'm excited for you, Ray. :)

  3. I'm glad you are chasing your art and your dream. All the best of luck to you.
