The Art of Editing

One of the hard truths about being a writer is that “writing” is about 20% of the job. That might be an exaggeration, but there’s definitely truth to it. The writing part is fast. Assuming you have an outline, and you’ve written a book a few times, it’s a matter of cranking it out. I[…]

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[…]

Milestone – 2,500 Sales!

Wow. Just, wow. I wasn’t expect to write this post until next year (that’s how optimistic I am). A little over a month ago, I wrote my milestone post for 1,000 sales. It took months of hard work and slogging in the trenches to get to that point, and I was very proud of that[…]

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[…]

Milestone – 1,000 Sales

Well, since publishing the first book of The Wasteland Chronicles last December, the series has now reached it’s 1,000th sale (actually, on 1,005 at the moment). It’s hard to believe that in less than a year’s time, one thousand people have purchased one of my books, in one form or another. Like…actually paid, for something[…]

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 Released!

Hey guys! Letting you all know that Evolution is now out! It can be found on Amazon at this link. I had a lot of fun writing this one. It may be the best one yet. In the back of the book, it even has a glossary that defines many of the terms found within[…]

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[…]
