It's 2019. I'm sure most of you are aware of this by now, and those who aren't... well I tip my cap. Your New Year's Eve celebration must have been epic. I'm not a New Years resolution sort of guy. Haven't been for a long time. I don't really know why I stopped the practice, … Continue reading Newness
I've mentioned before about times when writing has been difficult. I am not even pretending to pretend that I'm unique (in any way) with regard to this or any other aspect of this gig. But as is true with each of those other writers, how that experience feels is unique. To me, and to everyone … Continue reading It’s Been Weird…
Let me tell you something: there are few things more traumatic to an active writer these days than the death... ...of one's computer. On Wednesday the 28th, I did some work, saved everything, then went to my sister-in-law's birthday party. We left about 6:30 pm.

I wrote recently about the feelings that come about after I've sent a book off to the publisher, about how it was a mixed bag and whatnot. All of that is true of course because I wouldn't lie to you. But now that a little time has passed I wanted to revisit the subject because … Continue reading The Inter-Book Agenda
The Count of Carolina has been sent off to the publisher. Think I'll take a few days off. Then I'll start book three.
I am just about as happy as a boy can be. On April 27, Northern Lake Publishing announced that my fantasy series Cerah of Quadar will be released under the NLP imprint. The first volume, entitled A Dark Clock, will be released on May 8, (yes... just eight days from today). Volumes 2 and 3 are slated to … Continue reading Say Hello to Cerah…Again!
