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[…]

This Week

I’ve been having a lot of trouble wrapping my head around how fast things seem to be taking off. I have been stunned by the response the The Wasteland Chronicles has gotten in the past week. I really don’t want to say numbers right now, but let’s just say I’m getting more downloads a day[…]

Revelation Cover Reveal!

Alright, I’m very excited about this cover. Amazing work once again from Luke Atkinson. Alex and friends return to a Wasteland in turmoil. The Raiders are scattered, the Exiles hunted, and the feuding Vegas gangs plot one another’s destruction. Makara, head of the New Angels, has the difficult task of convincing disparate groups to work[…]

200,000 Words Later…

I hit a major milestone today that I’m surprised I noticed. The Wasteland Chronicles passed 200,000 words. That seems a like a lot of words. But really, it’s just a little bit over Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (which, admittedly, is a fairly large book). I finished the first draft of Revelation today[…]

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[…]

Evolution – Cover Reveal and Release Date!

It’s about that time again, folks! Book 3 of The Wasteland Chronicles, Evolution, is pretty much done, barring a few minor details. Here is the very awesome cover done by the series artist, Luke Atkinson! And yes, those are dragons! Expect the book to drop on 8/8/2013, available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, and[…]

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[…]

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[…]

In which I slept for 11 hours…

I got home yesterday at about 4:00 after a trip to Wally World. I got off work at the very early hour of 3, and was already trying to stifle some jaw-cracking yawns. When I got home, I ate dinner and started to read. By 5:30, I was out like a light. Then, 4:30 came[…]

Need to post!

Has it really been three days since I’ve posted? Yes, I guess it has. I’ve been very tired lately – and busy too, I guess. I finally reached the point in my novella that I’ve been waiting for. The apocalypse team is on the road again, saying goodbye to raider town. It took near twenty[…]
