Good news: I’m about a day or two away from ordering the first proof copy of Quiet on the Set! Bad news: I’m pushing the release date back to March 28th. It has been a busy couple of weeks! I’ve been scrambling trying to finish my editing on the book and I finally feel really […]
And the Winner Is… New Title and Cover Reveal!
Wow, it seems like it’s taken me ages to get this far! But, I’ve settled on three key components for the upcoming release of my book! Just a quick update: so far, I still have every intention of releasing the book on the 19th of March, BUT, it won’t be official until I list my […]
Dates: The Waiting Game
No, I’m not talking about relationships. I’m talking about scheduling: setting dates and goals for yourself to get things done within a reasonable time frame. I just looked at my original time frame on where I wanted to be with my edit-in-progress, and according to that, the book should have been coming out next week! […]
Pacing: Slow and Steady Wins the Race
Pacing: it’s one of the most challenging things in a story. On the one hand, you have to keep the story moving along to keep the reader interested. At the same time, you have to slow things down periodically to give the reader a chance to absorb what they’ve read, and maybe summarize things a […]

Look for A 21st Century Fairy Tale (aka Descendant) Sept. 4
My new book, a fantasy/mystery novella, is coming out September 4, 2012! Originally, I had titled it Descendant, but after some further research, I realized that there were about 3 or 4 pages of search results with a similar title and I didn’t want my book to be hidden among all the others. So, I […]
Realistically Yours is Now Available for Kindle!
One of the things I like about Amazon is how easy they make things for independent publishers like me. Not only can an author use CreateSpace to publish a print version of their book, and have CreateSpace print and ship copies on demand, but they can use Kindle Direct Publishing to publish digital copies of […]
*UPDATE: Upcoming Release: Descendant
Because of my inability to leave it alone, I am way ahead of schedule on the new book. A 21st Century Fairy Tale (previously titled Descendant), my new fantasy novella (it’ll be about 120 pages or so, so I figure that’s about novella length), will be coming out soon. It may not be a full-length […]
