...sometimes begins with a trip home. Let me clarify. I live in Central New York, but for eight of the worst years of my life, I lived in (and around) Potsdam, NY. For those that don't know, (which I feel includes most of you), Potsdam is a college town in Northern New York, (or The … Continue reading The Journey of a Thousand Miles…
It's hard to believe that it's already release day for the first volume of my epic fantasy series, Cerah of Quadar, but it's true! A Dark Clock is now available from Northern Lake Publishing and can be purchased from Amazon.com in either Kindle or paperback format. And, because I'm a big sweety, I've even provided a way … Continue reading It’s Release Day!
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!
I gave this blog entry a title which many people will recognize immediately as a quote from one of the great philosophers of our time, Mr. Willy Wonka. I did that because I'm talking about fixing things, about making them right. When I write a book, before even my advance readers get their hands on … Continue reading “Strike that… reverse it.”
I almost never write blog posts two days in a row, especially about the same thing, but I'm making an exception. Because for a brief shining moment today, The Beauty of Bucharest was officially a best seller on Amazon, coming in at #94 in the Espionage category. But I don't expect you to take my … Continue reading Something I Never Do
It seems like April 10 took forever to get here, but it's arrived at last, and that means that both the print and eBook versions of The Beauty of Bucharest are now available for purchase. My publisher, Northern Lake Publishing, announced today that the electronic version of TBoB will be moving to Kindle Unlimited in … Continue reading Release Day!
I have always been a huge fan of the month of April. Not only does it bring April showers, leading, I've been informed, to May flowers, (wait... rain sucks), but it is the month during which I was born, in a New York City hospital which no longer exists. (I suppose some might let loose … Continue reading April is My Favorite Month
Northern Lake Publishing has announced its third release for 2018, and it will be... And, since my name appears conspicuously on the cover, I guess I'm helping in some way or another. Craig and I are very excited to once again turn our attention to the continuing tale of the SpyCo operatives, as they face … Continue reading Let’s Go to London!
That is a question that has caused me anxiety in varying degrees throughout my life. A moment of particularly high anxiety occurred during high school when my mom burst into my bedroom while I was in there with my girlfriend. She asked that very question, quite loudly, and I had to assure her that we … Continue reading What’s Going On?
It depends on the person, ultimately. Imagine every book you've ever seen, and now think about before they were books. Before they were volumes on a shelf, most of the time sitting mutely, collecting dust, they were ideas. They were ideas that became a labor of love at the hands of hundreds of thousands, millions … Continue reading Things I Haven’t Had Time to Think About
