Okay, pull up a seat. Let’s talk.

We’re going to talk about the part of writing a book series no one really tells you about before you do this stupid shit thing and become an author.   Now, you all know that the SHMC and the Sacred Brotherhood are essentially one series. We are officially at thirteen books and one novella, so … [Read more…]

Sneak Peek – A Brother’s Salvation

Dragon… I sighed and stretched out along the new spring grass, laying on my back under a wide blue sky, the odd fluffy fat white cloud skating across the pure blue surface. The sun was out, the weather warm, but it wasn’t hot. It was still too early for that. Hell, we were lucky it … [Read more…]

Some Interesting Developments…

I’m doing a lot of ‘never done before’ lately. For instance, the current manuscript I am working on for A Code Blue Call isn’t the next book in the Indigo Knights series.

An unexpected but warm surprise!

Work In Progress…

I’m not shy about talking about it, because I have a sincere belief that mental health issues in America are far too stigmatized when they ought not to be. So yeah, I am … [Read more…]

The struggle’s been real…

Woke up to some pretty sad news in my email this morning. With every passing day, I’m realizing just how much I just don’t want to do this whole author thing anymore. Every time I log in it’s to more bad news, more vitriol, more hate, anger, rude comments, harassment, and just about every other … [Read more…]

Limited by Kindle Unlimited

Good morning. As most of you know, there has been a major upheaval when it comes to Kindle Unlimited and some less than transparent business practices performed by Amazon regarding their Kindle Unlimited authors. It began with a swath of emails last week to legitimate Kindle Unlimited authors, including myself, stating that we were in … [Read more…]
