I'm sure this has to do with reworking Sword and Shield yesterday, because today I got the notion to change the cover for Palladium. Yes, I know. It's been up for barely a week and I'm already making changes. But the cover always bugged me. I couldn't find anything better that I liked. What specifically … Continue reading Redesigned cover
The 6th Sacred Knight book draws one more step closer today. I finished the manuscript several months ago (I'm not going to say how many because I was a bit embarrassed when I looked up the date -- whoa, really?), and I have been nagged by it ever since. I knew there was a scene … Continue reading Sword & Shield – Sacred Knight #6
Temmy tried to get me up early this morning. I should have listened to her. But no, I knew what was waiting for me and I didn't really want to get to it. As a result, it was a strange day today. I partially blame Mercedes Lackey too. I started reading her book, Joust, last … Continue reading Bookkeeping and covers
That is the question I deal with today. In trying to work on the trilogy yesterday, I started feeling like something was going wrong, like maybe scenes were out of order. I feel like I've reordered them once, even though the truth is that scenes I was able to merge in one of the scenes … Continue reading To tear apart or not to tear apart?
I made it. I got my words in and met the weekly goal for last week. It was late when I finished (after midnight, but since I hadn't gone to bed yet, it still counted as Sunday). I took Merlin outside after 1:00 a.m. and the sky was so bright with the full moon that … Continue reading Release the hellhounds!

Now, Palladium is available as a finished novel. © Rodjulian | Dreamstime.com © Xneo | Dreamstime.com© Gualtiero Boffi | Dreamstime.com I do have to send a shout-out to Amazon customer support. Vella ended up … Continue reading A long time coming
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm about halfway through the third book of the trilogy. I had the title for a fourth book pop into my head, so I'm wondering if there are actually more. The story is actually rounding out that there could be more. But I realized a couple of days … Continue reading Back to outlining
The paperback version of 1-800-Lok8 should be up soon. I submitted it earlier today and it's currently in review on Amazon. Probably by late Monday morning, you'll be able to find it here. © Pop Nukoonrat | Dreamstime.com I am currently trying to rearrange my schedule again. I feel like I've been close, but I still needed to … Continue reading 1-800-Lok8 paperback
I have now set up a story preview page. Currently, it is over on the right hand sidebar listed with my other pages and titled Story Previews. Right now, only Dragons of Wellsdeep is up, and it has the prologue and chapter 1 available to be read. I'll get more book previews up in the … Continue reading Preview page
As we head into the new year, I'm looking for new, exciting avenues. One of these, I've decided to restart my Patreon page, which would allow people to contribute on a monthly basis in return for books, art, or both. I've been thinking about so many options, but I finally narrowed it down to a … Continue reading Patreon – a fresh start / Vella – a new beginning
