The Reason and the Why

The Reason and the Why I can’t claim to have many fans of my writing. I think everyone who publishes would like to think that there’s this group of people absolutely chomping at the bit for the next release but I am not much for lying to myself. Those people just don’t exist for me.… Continue reading The Reason and the Why

The Last Sheep – a novel

 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 journey. A… Continue reading The Last Sheep – a novel

The Collection

   When I began writing as a teenager I didn't really have an end-goal, didn't have an agenda, and didn't see anything but the words as they spun out before me. The older I got the more ambitious I got and the wider my view became. The words and stories still seem like magic, like… Continue reading The Collection

My First Novel – A SHADOW OVER EVER

Crap, I Did It Again…

  For a guy that never intended or wanted to write a novel I don't really listen to myself very well. I just finished writing the last story for another long in the works book. The zombie novel began a lot of years ago as a short story called The Delicate Sound of Rain. I wrote… Continue reading Crap, I Did It Again…

Trimming The Fat

   For me there’s few things as upsetting as editing my writing. Well, wait, that’s not true, I really like editing my work when I am doing the editing but when it comes to someone else, well…I think loathe is letting the act get off a little easy. There is just something so clinical and… Continue reading Trimming The Fat

A Note To Friends And A Press Release – Hooray?

Odds are it'd just be stuff I have already said anyway. HA. I have had an awful… Continue reading Woo! 500 posts. Woo…And Some Book Stuffs!

Laying It All Out

I am in the midst of the most un-fun part of the book process, at least for me, and that's laying it out. Thankfully I have an awesome girlfriend that knows her way around laying my books out who has been hard at work on it but it is for sure not a glamorous job.… Continue reading Laying It All Out
