Cover Reveal – Darkness

The cover is here! I struggled with a title and a story for a while, but it’s just now starting to materialize. And DIS COVER… It communicates the entire book perfectly. Now hopefully I can finish a story that can do it justice. I have the next ten days free from work (yay vacation!). But[…]

A Year From Now

For the first time in a while, I’m going to write a post. I used to do this more often, but I have just been letting general busyness get to me, I guess. I think that is a good thing, overall. With my new job, I have much more time to write, and it’s really[…]

First Round of Edits Done

Just finished the first round of edits for Evolution. After the first draft, the book felt weaker than Book 2, but stronger than Book 1. Now, I think it has a chance of being the best of all. The book had been expanded from 48,000 words to 55,000 words…making it the longest installment of The[…]

First Draft of Evolution Done

I haven’t had much in the way of news lately, as I’ve been busy writing and working. But now, I’ve just finished my third book in The Wasteland Chronicles. This one is titled Evolution. Some fun facts about writing this book: 1. This book wasn’t supposed to exist to begin with. Now, it kind of[…]

Extinction Preview

Well, I have not posted in a while, so here it is. A post. Writing wise, I’m starting book 3, Extinction, and so far I’m really liking it. Just the way the book is set up, I can jump into the action immediately. I’m about 4,000 words in, and if the stars align, I’ll be[…]

My Writing Story So Far

If I were to tell my full story of life and writing, it would be many thousands of words. If I were to write this fifty years from now, it might be a hefty book (or two). Now, I just want to concentrate on my thoughts of my writing and my life in the past[…]

The Future of the Wasteland

Now that I’ve finished the fourth draft of Origins, I am somewhat twiddling my thumbs. The break is good and well-earned, but I find myself wondering about my next thing. There’s a fantasy novella I halfway wrote about a year ago that I’d like to revisit. Some ideas have been developing in my head on[…]

So, how am I actually doing….

I know people are curious, and it seems when I post these crazy numbers on Facebook, it might seem like I’m taking off. I don’t believe I’m going to “take off,” although I do believe if I keep at it, keep writing quality books, and keep promoting, I’ll experience a gradual climb as a result[…]

Results of the 2 Day Promo

A couple nights ago, on a whim, I decided to use two my five free days to give away Apocalypse, curious to see how many copies would be downloaded without any other form of promotion. The result is, more people have my writing in their hands from two days than over my entire life. It’s[…]

The Blog Grows

I’m adding some new additions to the blog. I’ve begun what will one day be an illustrious blogroll. I added a couple neat sites. The Indie View in particular is a irreplaceable tool for indie writers who are trying to solicit to blogs, and it’s where I found most of the blogs I solicited in[…]

The Vexations of a Writer, Avast!

Spent the whole day doing promotion stuff. I’m getting better at it! It’s actually kind of excited. I solicited a total of NINETEEN blogs today about my first book,┬áNight of the Necromancer. That was really cool and I’m expecting great things. The vexation comes with the new upload of the book…it’s doing screwy things I[…]
