When I first discovered the wonders of self-publishing - and yeah, I’ll say wonders, darn it because for folks like me that can’t get in with a traditional publisher it’s an amazing asset to be able to utilize to get your work out to the world - one of the big things I wanted to… Continue reading FLASHBACK – The Meep Sheep Trilogy

When I started writing I didn’t think I would one day produce nine books. Not ever. Even when my first book came out. It just…it wouldn’t have computed. It still doesn’t. I have put my ninth book out just before I turn 40. So strange. For me The Last Sheep is the end of a… Continue reading The Last Sheep – a novel
Book - The Last - is finished. Huzzah. Boo. Hiss. Whatevs. Still not sure what I feel about it. I am the worst judge of my own work because I am very hard on myself and am not sure I think anything I write is more than OK. All of this is prolly why I… Continue reading The Last War…er…Sheep
When I first wrote The Meep Sheep I never ever imagined there were more stories to be written. I wasn't 'done' with the world so much as I didn't know there was more to say. As time passed the world of the Meep Seep stayed with me and the idea of writing stories, side stories,… Continue reading The Kreep Sheep – a dark sequel
Just after midnight last night I finished work on the third Meep Sheep book. It took a little longer than the month I had planned on but I hadn't anticipated the walls I would hit at the end. I can say that I wrote a novella now. One single story that is 83 single spaced pages.… Continue reading The End Of The Third Age
The notion of tone has been weighing heavily on my mind of late as I work to finish the last book in the Meep Sheep series. A touchstone for those books, for me, has been that they were not dumbed down but were accessible to most ages. I strove to write and release something that… Continue reading Tone
The follow-up to my fairy tale The Meep Sheep, this is a book that continues in that tradition with stories of the World of Man, the Meep Sheep, the panda kingdom, and more. The Kreep Sheep is full of stories of the past and the future and fills in some of the gaps of history… Continue reading The Kreep Sheep–a dark fairy tale–$1 On Kindle!
Well, last night was a pretty important night in the life of the new book - it was the last day of editing on The Kreep Sheep, which means that the hard stuff is done. Well, not really, it just means the editing is done. I am pretty stoked. I set deadlines for myself as… Continue reading Something Kreeps Over the Horizon
If there is something you should do when you are able to release a book it’s have a book release of some sort. For Red Dreams I wanted to celebrate with friends and family so I had people come over to where I live and we invaded my friend and neighbor’s apartment for some delicious… Continue reading RED DREAMS Book Release Party

Ok, so here's my update on all things book. As it stands I am done editing Book Four and am happy to be done with it. I love editing, especially older works, because it gives me a chance to look back at stories I haven't seen in a while and can fix any flubs and… Continue reading Psst…It's Almost Here…
Well, it's the end of another year and it's time to start looking at how things went. Well, at least as far as writing and art goes. Adding up the numbers it wasn't the most profitable year for me but that I made any money writing and doing art is pretty amazing. If you take… Continue reading Head Count
