What’s In “Store” for 2020?

It’s been a busy time for me as of late. In addition to hours increasing for peak season at my day job, I’ve also been hard at work with promos for Vitae and with solidifying some of the groundwork for the novel I plan to publish by the end of 2020. Speaking of Vitae…I am twenty days past when I initially hoped to have it published, and we are now looking into early 2020 before…

Patchwork Wordsmith II

Last September, I wrote about what it means for me to be a patchwork wordsmith. As I continue my journey as a writer, and as Vitae draws nearer to being ready for publication, I am realizing what a tremendous blessing being a patchwork writer can be. I have a trove of work on my hard drive that is nearly-finished, not-nearly-finished, never-will-be-finished, and just about everything else under the sun. That isn’t to say by any…

Distribution – Pick Your Poison

I realize that this post is a tad overdue. While it wasn’t intentional, let’s just say that I’ve been more than a little busy as of late. Hmm – could have something to do with Duality being named a 2019 IAN Book of the Year Awards Finalist Ahem, anyway…I guess that makes this particular post more timely than ever because I wanted to talk about distribution and some of the methods I have considered as…

Editing – Is it Necessary?

If you’ve been following along via Twitter and Facebook, you already know that VITAE is due out in a few months. Working on the novel has been where the bulk of my free time has gone since recovering from a wrist injury. My wrist still isn’t at 100%, but it’s close enough so that I can write/type for longer periods of time with an occasional rest. A lot has gone on since my previous post.…

There’s More Where That Came From

Friday, November 8, 2019. That is the date the current edition of DUALITY will be removed from Amazon in both Kindle and paperback formats to make way for the updated second edition to be released on Sunday, November 10, 2019. The second edition will have a number of cosmetic/formatting changes on the outside and inside of the book; and, though I am hoping that VITAE will also be released on the same day, I am…

Presenting…

Though there might be a few tweaks between now and the release date, here is the front cover for VITAE!

Growing Pains

There are times that it becomes necessary to change and grow based upon surroundings and circumstances. As a writer, I’ve made many changes within various projects with the purpose of enhancing or showcasing the work. Some of those modifications were easier to make than others. Duality has been out for roughly six months now, and I am still enjoying the exhilaration of publishing my debut novel even while working on Vitae, which is due to…

Programming Note

Lots of thought has gone into this, and I’ve realized that I’m spread a bit too thin at the moment. I’m juggling a full-time job, writing my second novel, still doing promotional work for my debut novel, and myriad other things. As a result, blogging has fallen by the wayside. It isn’t that I don’t enjoy blogging – I do – I just don’t have as much free time as I once did to post…

Great Storms That Begin Small

I have spent the last month or so doing my best to get my life right. I don’t mean that on any dramatic, over-the-top, monumental scale. I only mean in terms of writing, working on my “brand,” and finalizing plans for future projects. It is a lot. That is definitely not an over-exaggeration; I actually do have a lot on my plate. And, it’s fantastic! That is not a complaint at all. I am absolutely…
