I've been quiet this week (I actually posted twice this week already, but those were scheduled in advance) because I am currently on the home stretch of my next Four Horsemen novel, DAUGHTERS OF THE PRIDE. I can see the ending, and the middle is coming along nicely. There's a few parts I want to … Continue reading Home Stretch
Sometimes the words flow and life is good. Other times, well, it's like a tooth extraction gone horribly wrong. This past week has been an interesting mesh of being both unable to write and yet still averaging almost 2,000 words per day. I've been focusing mostly on DAUGHTERS OF THE PRIDE, though I did work … Continue reading Maintain the Flow
The shingles are mostly gone now minus some scarring (it looks like I was shot in the ribs with a shotgun), so of course my body decides it's time to get sick. This would be amusing if not for the amount of writing time I missed in January. I'm just wondering... how many of you … Continue reading Always Asking Questions
The shingles are starting to go away some, so I've been up and moving about a little more now that the pain is manageable. It still kinda sucks, and from the looks of things I'm going to have severe scarring around my ribs on my right side, but otherwise I should make a full recovery. … Continue reading Audible Gold
Just found out this morning that my novel, SONS OF THE LION, is a finalist for the Webster Award handed out at Ravencon in Virginia next year. The Webster Award is awarded to Virginia's best author. I'm competing against my friend R. S. Belcher this year. Last year my other friend and publisher, Chris Kennedy, … Continue reading Webster Award Finalist
I received a bit of good advice once from a man who doesn't like me. He told me "social media platforms come and go, but your website... well, that's yours." Indeed it is. The past 72 hours I've seen multiple utspoken friends banned from using Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook under what a lot of people … Continue reading Migrating and Awards
Yeah, you read that correctly. My novel, Sons of the Lion, is a 2019 finalist for Best Military SciFi or Fantasy novel. What's really cool/interesting is that I didn't even campaign for it! Hell, I didn't even nominate myself. I have the world's coolest fans and friends. Thank you all for your support. Don't forget, … Continue reading 2019 Dragon Award Finalist
Those first two weeks post-Libertycon are always rough. I already miss my friends and family, and coming back to work simply bites. On the other hands, bills and stuff still exist, so it's back to the grind. However, I did come out of that weekend with a new book contract, signed and delivered last week. … Continue reading Back to the Grind
The past nine days have been tremendously exciting for me. First, a little over one week ago, SONS OF THE LION was released and immediately shot up the charts. The sales for it are still going strong, and the reviews have all been positive as readers are reintroduced to characters they'd only seen in short … Continue reading We Dare & Sons of the Lion Are BOTH Out!
So something really cool happened yesterday and I completely forgot to tell you. SONS OF THE LION has had its release date bumped up from June 7 to May 24. That's right, now you can get the book two whole weeks sooner! That means there will definitely be copies for sale at Libertycon for those … Continue reading Change of Release Date!
