Origins

A couple days earlier than expected, I’ve released Origins. In this book, the team continues on their mission to discover the origins of the xenovirus, and it has some very surprising twists, especially toward the end. I had a lot of fun writing this book, and am ready to start Book 3 as soon as[…]

The End

I’ve learned that a book isn’t done when you write “the end.” A good part of the work, about fifty percent, is editing. And I’m glad to say I’ve got the vast majority of editing done for Origins. It took four drafts, and though my fifth book, Origins marks a first for me: it’s the[…]

4/8/2013

Didn’t do much, writing-wise. Edited a chapter and just a hit a block. Something about the beginning of the book moves really slowly for me. I don’t think it’s because it’s bad, per se. I think it just takes time for the plot to get into motion and have the new characters introduced. Instead, I[…]

Only One Thing Matters at this point

Starting last November, I gained a huge burst of energy regarding my writing. I wrote everyday, sometimes even waking up at 4:30 in the morning. During that time period I completed my novella, Apocalypse, and published it, as well as the first draft of another novella, as well as another novella, the one I’m working[…]

Where I’ve Been

Well, this is the third time I’ve posted this month, which is a bit inexcusable. It’s not that I haven’t thought about blogging. I’ve been exhausted. I don’t really know why. I want to say it’s work but not really, because I blogged like crazy all through February. That, and for the first time since[…]

3/14/2013

It’s been hard to get inspired to write anything. Mixture of tiredness and trying to finish this book. I’m trying not to get burned out on the whole thing. Looking at how much work needs to be done it will be a miracle if book 2 gets published by the 31st. Between how tired I[…]

Results of my first Goodreads Giveaway

I’m pretty astounded at the results of the Goodreads giveaway. From 2/26-2/27, I offered up a signed copy of The Wasteland Chronicles and about 650 people entered to win, and about 300 added me on their to-read list. I just got back from the post office an hour or so ago and waited in line[…]

Lack of Motivation

I have zero motivation to do anything today. Nothing. I just want to veg out and watch TV. I already looked over the proof of Apocalypse, found way more typos than I thought the book had, which shook my confidence. I am definitely, definitely hiring a copyeditor for my next book. Where does my lack of[…]

Writing Resolution

Alright I’ve been meaning to post much more often that I have, but lately I’ve found I’ve had little to say. I’m surprised to find that my new novella is almost 15,000 words in. I’ve been trying to wake up in the mornings to write on it, but sometimes life gets in the way. My goal[…]

Apocalypse Going Live in 12 Hours!

I’m very excited to say that my new book, The Wasteland Chronicles: Apocalypse, will be going live in twelve hours! I worked really hard, and, fun fact, this is the first book I wrote without an overall plan of where it was going to go. We’ll see how that ends up, heehee. Like my other book,[…]

Why, hello, Blog Thing!

So, this is my writer’s blog. Welcome. I think? Yes. Welcome! With an exclamation point! Every writer needs a blog, so behold, this is mine. I use commas a lot. At least for now. Just my style, I guess. Anyway. I need a platform to let everyone know what is going on in, well, my[…]
