The Rifts of Psyche – Almost Done!

Hey everyone. My fingers have warped time and space themselves since they’ve been typing so fast to edit The Rifts of Psyche, Book 3 of Starsea. That, and I have to meet an editing deadline by March 8, which means I’m blazing through my final pass in the next three days. The word count has[…]

Wasteland Chronicles Rebrand

Every 5 years or so (or even less) it’s usually a good idea for an old series’ cover to be changed. Cover conventions change, so I always felt like Wasteland Chronicles needed a fresh layer of paint as it were. It’s the same old story it’s always been, just in different packaging :). The first[…]

Tomorrow, The Orb of Binding goes live!

Hello. Long time, no blog post.

Things have been insanely busy lately. I’ve had to make some sacrifices on how I spend my time, so posting on here/social media or even keeping up with friends has taken a backseat. My life has become dominated with taking care of the little one while spending the rest of that time writing/editing. Alas, sacrifices[…]

First Draft of Book 3 – Done!

Last night, wrapped up the final lines of Book 3, the title of which I’m keeping under wraps for the moment. The manuscript clocks in at 120,359 words, which is pretty amazing because I predicted it would be 120,000 even, so I wasn’t too far off! Translation, that’s about 450 pages or so, a decent[…]

Thank you for the successful launch!

Hey guys! Two days after launch, the dust hasn’t really settled yet, but I just thought I’d write an update to let you guys know that my expectations for Mages of Stasrsea were exceeded, thanks to all of you. I’m a pretty small-time author, so my goals were quite modest. Even so, it’s always good[…]

2020 Year in Review, and Goals for 2021

Well, I won’t bother anyone with clichés about how thankful I am for this year to be over. And actually, when you take away the virus, civil unrest, insane political stupidity, and all the needless deaths, it was actually a pretty good year for me. First of all, 2020 will always be a great year[…]

My Year in Books

I set a goal to read 52 book this year. In the end, I read about 42 or so, but I don’t feel too bad since I was crazy busy and my reading speed fell off a cliff after the little one was born. It was much easier to watch TV by that point… That[…]

The highlights is our new baby boy, who was the greatest Christmas present of all. He had a very good Christmas, staying awake the entire time[…]
