I am about 2/3 of the way done with the first draft of my next novel. It’s involved lots of research, so I hope it pays off. It’s a high fantasy novel, and I hope it’ll be something different. I know it’ll take several revisions before I can put together an ARC (advanced review copy)Continue reading “Almost done!”
The summer of 1987 was a great year for me. Similar to what 1969 was for others, 1987 left a lasting impression on me. It was the year I finally rode a bicycle; riding in circles in my grandparents’ little backyard, listening to KTFM on my radio headphones as they played Madonna, The Jets, andContinue reading “Myth or Fact?”
Something in the air is preventing the Muse from being herself. Or maybe it’s the change in the hours (thanks, Spring Forward). I know what it’s like when an artist has go back with an eraser and clean up some lines. Just as this one character has to sludge along in some mountainous snow, I’mContinue reading “Must Be The Weather…”
I hate these kind of days. The kind where intoxicating sleep wants to lull you back to slumber. Still, I fought of as much as I can, enough to finish a scene in this chapter. At first, I wasn’t sure where this character was going to take me, but now, it’s beginning to take shape.

Aside from my nurse’s visit, I’ve been working hard on the special features portion of Parachute Island. So far, there’ll be a main characters section, a section on all the symbols and symbolism, the ailments David had to endure, and working on the breakdown of the soundtrack and how each song helped on building aContinue reading “Busy, busy day!”
I received my first objective review this morning JUUUST as I was going to go back to sleep for Parachute Island. I’ve been on pins and needles on getting, not only more reviews, but my first “objective” review from someone who’s not a family member or friend. Will they like it? Will they trash it?Continue reading “My first objective review!”
Yeah, I know, it doesn’t look like much right now, but I am working on providing a lot of cool stuff, especially regarding Parachute Island. There’ll be lots of trivia surrounding what made the novel, a lot of which wasn’t shown in the book. Eventually, this will be THE go-to place regarding all my works,Continue reading “Building, building, building…”
