Stoney deGeyter is a prolific blogger, non-fiction author, and aspiring novelist residing in Northeast Ohio. His current body of work, A Crossed Time, is a dystopian, time-travel, sci-fi trilogy with an unexpected twist. Devastation, Harvestation, and Emancipation, are the respective working sub-titles for each volume in the series.
Stoney’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to found the premier digital marketing agency, Pole Position Marketing, back in the late 90’s. He is a national speaker and has written the highly-acclaimed book, The Best Damn Web Marketing Checklist, Period! (currently in version 2.0), hailed as a must-read for all digital marketers, web developers, and marketing managers.
Since he has fulfilled one of his passions by owning and running his own company, Stoney has turned his sights to his second passion: writing novels. The storyline for A Crossed Time was dreamed up over a decade ago. Since then, Stoney has been imagining scenes and jotting down ideas for the book, hoping someday to make it a reality.
It wasn’t until June of 2016, Stoney decided to take the plunge and bring his novel to life. As he began to write and flesh out the details, Stoney realized that the richness and complexity of the story necessitated three books instead of one, thus, a trilogy was born.
Currently, Stoney is on the third draft of the first book in the series, Devastation. He blogs about his journey as a novelist on acrossedtime.com and posts drafts of the book, one chapter at a time, so his readers can take part in his journey and give their feedback as well. He also interacts regularly with his audience on social media.
