Greetings and salutations! Welcome back to another blog post. Hopefully, this one will be an enjoyable one. Been trying to get the word out about my newest novel, Red Star Sheriff (--->https://www.amazon.com/Red-Star-Sheriff-Trilogy-Book-ebook/dp/B085MNJX71<--- ), as far and wide as possible. It's not gaining a whole lot of traction, but, what can you do? All I can … Continue reading New Novel Approaches
Okay, I'm just going to release Red Star Sheriff on March 26th, 2020. With the virus on the loose and great uncertainties all around, I just feel it would be best to get the book out there in as soon a manner as possible. The paperback will be along shortly thereafter, though Amazon may not … Continue reading Update

I've often heard remarks about story telling that a beginning is the most important aspect of a tale. But is that so? Because an ending can stick in a reader's mind for ages.

But the more … Continue reading The Challenge of Consistent Writing
I started writing my book Red Star Sheriff roughly two years ago. I'm happy to report that I finished all the major edits to it within the last few weeks (though wordcount seems to be a sticking point on getting it published through a traditional venue--so I still have to evaluate that angle). I've been … Continue reading And It’s Done! …Sort of.
Wooo! I don't know how people manage to do it! I don't know how people manage to have a full time job (such as myself) and are able to keep up with a blog! I mean, I'm working on my book still so that's been keeping me fairly occupied. But to put daily work into … Continue reading Believe it or not, Yes, I’m still here
I'm in the endgame now! Got through two thirds of my narrative, rewritten significant portions of the story, cleaned up plot holes, and strengthened character arcs! I'm enjoying the process and pleased with how the final story is coming along. By the end of August, I think, all will be said and gone. Soon, I … Continue reading How My Book Is Coming
This is such an interesting question. I've seen many people ask it of established authors. It seems like a question that potential writers ask to make sure they're not losing their minds because this bug to write has bitten them hard. And it isn't a bad question. However, I think it's potentially loaded. Mostly because … Continue reading When Did You Know You Wanted To Write?
