I'm still here. I'm just hard at work on a number of different projects right now, with one being quite large. Hopefully you will get to see what I've been working on soon. And yes the rewrite of Endospore is among these projects. It's sooooo good! Look for new works coming out late 2015 or early 2016. When they start coming out, they will keep flowing out for a while! It's very exciting. I'll be redesigning the website before they begin releasing to focus on these new projects, and an email list will be added to keep my glorious readers up to date on release dates as they will be coming quickly when they start! Talk to all of you real soon. And stay awesome!

Is anybody home?

Hello world, I'm back! Not that I've stepped out of the world by any means. I haven't disappeared in some sort of time warp, nor have I left on a rocket ship. Nope, I just was pretty unconnected to your internets. My smart phone decided it wanted to be a dumb phone, and that was my main source of interwebbiness. So I've been around, just not connected, which is pretty much the same thing to being gone from the world anymore.

Anywho, what have I been doing, the one person who reads these is surely asking me. I've been working at my day job more than anything else. That is not saying I have not been putting the ol' brain to work on fiction. Far from it actually. I am nearly ready to begin work on a brand new trilogy. More on that later, however, as I have not quite began writing the first draft of the first book yet. Almost ready to begin writing though. My actual writing work has been put into my first published book, Endospore.

But... but... that book is already published. Why, prey-tell, are you working on that oh purveyor of awesomely awesomeness?

Well, since you asked so nicely, as I already have stated, that book is being edited. Yeah, work on that has been taking forever to get done. Again, day job, curses! But the real reason more than anything else is that while Endospore is a good novel, it was my first published one (though fifth in writing), and there was a lot in it that people have had issue with. I'm working on resolving those issues and fixing some problems I've had with it myself. That means new content! And professional editing when I'm done. It is taking a while as my time is being unfairly stolen by the dreaded DAY JOB! If only I was willing to be a starving artist, and not a well fed one. But work is proceeding. As for a rerelease, I would guess by X-mass of this year. It will be released as a new title and the old one will be removed from sale about a month before release.

Now, I know some people will ask, "why should I invest into the current one if the new one will be coming in a few months?" Answer: The current edition is discounted down to just $0.99 on Amazon, and when the new edition comes out, it will run for free for five days, in which anyone can pick it up. I will announce the release date a month before when the old copy goes down, and will also announce the exact dates for the free run. The new copy will sell for more than the old one did as well, because of the greater investment in actual cash in editing that is coming directly from my pocket (well, from the publisher, but as I'm 50% owner of the publisher, it's coming from my pocket).

And the final reason to pick up the current edition is this: IT STILL IS A GOOD BOOK. The majority of the people who read it did enjoy it greatly. Only people that got caught up in the mechanics of the editing really had problems with it, which tends to be the minority of readers (they just tend to be the loudest, and with good reason). I agree with issues about mechanics, so I understand many of the complaints, and that is why I'm going through the necessary bits to remedy the issues and rerelease. I hope the final product is something that adds to the overall story for everyone. It certainly is for me.

But thank you to the one person who read all of this. I wish you the best in your future endeavors, and thank you for your support. And as always...

Happy Reading

May Updates

If you are counting, Have You Seen My Meow? is in treebook format, and Wal-Mart Book of Ethics Abridged Edition is in treebook format now as well. So what about the other two books I have published, Endospore and The Tragedy of Macbeth: A Novel? They are going to be in print, but first they need to finish being edited.

Endospore is being worked over right now, and when done it will be rereleased on the Kindle and put into print. We're fixing typos and just plain grammar errors, but more than that, I'm making some of the more subtle story points a little more easily understood so there will be less questions left over when someone is done reading the book. I'm not going to be holding people's hands as I find that disrespectful to readers, but many things will be less obscure in the story. And finally MORE SEX. I know, but my wife asked for more. I think this is what she meant. ;-)

It will be out as soon as possible, but my day job is making it difficult to get it done swiftly. And Macbeth will be following shortly after.

Happy Reading

A Gift for my Readers

The professionally edited edition of the Wal-Mart Book of Ethics Abridged Edition is now available on Amazon.com. The book is priced at $0.99. And in a week's time, the print version should be available by the end of the coming week! By 4/13/13. Look out for it coming.

And now a second gift. Endospore, my top selling novel set in a post-apocalyptic world, is now marked at $0.99 for a short time. I'm working on getting this novel professionally edited as well, and until it comes out, it will remain at only a buck until re-released. After editing, the story will remain the same, just have any remaining typos removed and a couple things cleared up. And the awesome part, after the re-release, I will be asking Amazon to send the new edition to all of my readers! And this is my gift to you.

And as always,
Happy Reading

To My Readers

I just want to say thank you to the thousands of people who have downloaded one of my ebooks. I am very grateful for your support and enjoyment of my writing. Many of you have left comments on Amazon for one book or another, and I appreciate that too, even when the reviewer obviously did not like the book. Criticism is necessary to improve one's art.

I have noticed a vast majority of the complains that have come in are mostly over editing issues. I am well aware these issues exist. If you have never written a book, it is hard to explain why a writer cannot fix all of this in their own manuscript. If you are a writer, I don't need to say anything. You already understand. But this is the truth for most writers, that you cannot edit yourself into a clean manuscript. I have been looking for a copyeditor for a while that is not cost prohibitive. I have found someone who is working with me under terms we both find agreeable.

The first work to be looked over is the "Wal-Mart Book of Ethics Abridged Edition". If everything goes well, the new edition will be released on Amazon to replace the current copy, and the thousands who already have a copy will receive an email (Amazon willing) linking to the new download so it does not have to be repurchased. That book will then see it's first print run, just as "Have You Seen My Meow?" has.

If all of that goes smoothly, then "Endospore" will be next, and then finally "The Tragedy of Macbeth: A Novel" will be last. Every book going forward then will be copyedited before being released. (I just can wait to begin really talking about the next series I'm currently working on!)

I do hope that those who found the books difficult because of the errors will give them a second chance once the updated copies are available. And those who have read them and enjoyed the books, maybe you will find an even deeper love for the books afterward.

Happy Reading
