More than 7 Minutes to Winter…

Before I get writing fiction today, I figured it’d be a good time to announce the book of mine that launched yesterday. Yep, book 3 of the Spells of the Curtain Series is out now! It’s called Winter Mage and covers the rest of the original novel I wrote over nine years ago. The story doesn’t end in this one, but a new arc begins. No spoilers, but I love this book and I’m gonna love the next one

You know, I used to write these blog posts in the same program I write books in, Scrivener. I don’t know why I stopped, but here we are. I like typing straight into the posting window. It feels more immediate somehow.

Also, my glasses broke this morning. I just picked them up and it’s a good thing I had a backup pair because one of the parts that hangs over an ear (Arms? Is that what you call them?) broke off. I’ll get them fixed or replaced soon, but the only reason I can see to type this is my older glasses now perched on my nose. It’s oddly present to me how fragile my sight really is these days. I can navigate outside without glasses, but good luck indoors.

Anyway, I am very excited for how well my books are doing out there right now. Compared to a lot of people I’m just now seeing a little success, but I’m grateful for all of it. One step at a time, folks. One step at a time.

Well, the timer never started, but I think I’m getting there. That sure seems to be the way of things today.

Thanks for reading.

Talk to you again soon.

New Release – Battle Mage


I hope you’re ready for a new book!

That’s right, Spells of the Curtain 2: Battle Mage is out today! I briefly mentioned this on my facebook page and personal page earlier today. This story has been a long time in the making, just like book one. I am thrilled to finally be releasing these books and the future ones in this series.
Anyway, I am totally brain-fried today, but here is the link to the book again.

Thanks for reading.

7 Minutes to a Conspiracy

Well, folks, it happened. Yesterday the third book in my Root Conspiracy series released on Amazon.com.

Image Storm is a rereleased of a little novella once called The Bright Image, but it’s here. I really struggled writing this boo, but I’m happy it’s out there, and I really enjoy where it takes the story of Jeth and his friends. The original version of this series really did not get out there very well, so I’m trying to emphasize the genre elements. IE: The post-apocalyptic setting, and the weird future I imagined in them.

If that sounds interesting to you, click the image above and check out the series. I’m really happy with them, and with book 4, which should be out on August 21st. Thanks for your attention.

Writing on book four has been tough to get started. I encountered some serious resistance trying to devise the structure and form the story should take as I proceed in a direction I think people will enjoy. The story is flowing now, but I had to brainstorm a lot of ideas to get things rolling.

All eyes and buys are appreciated. Thank you all so much for any attention and support you have for me. Rock on, folks. Thanks for reading.

And buzzer.

 

7 Minutes to Book 2!

Hi people! Above you can see the cover for the second book in the Spells of the Curtain series.

Of the first three books in this series, I have to say this one is probably my personal favorite. We go from high to low and all over in between in this story. The work in this part didn’t feel like work at all. That’s the best kind of writing for me when the real world and words disappear and I’m somewhere else, discovering what happened in this other place with its own rules. That doesn’t happen often for me. In the past ten years, maybe 2-3 books felt that way.

I recently started reading a book by James Scott Bell called “The Mental Game of Writing.” In this book, Bell discusses a side of playful creativity at a few points. So far, my favorite delve into this subject refers to play as chaos, a lawless freedom to write whatever the writer wants at that moment. However, one must always restore order for the readers’ sakes later on. I think that’s true. I also think I managed to coordinate play and order well in book two, out next Tuesday!

Also, book one is out today! Click here to get it right now!

Thanks for reading.

7 Minutes to a New Series!

Hello folks! Another 7-minute blog coming at you today.

This is an announcement for my new series, Spells of The Curtain, and especially the first book, Court Mage, available for pre-order at the link in the image below.

I’m very excited to finally have a pure-fantasy series in the works, though I will continue supporting the Root Conspiracy series as well.

I have the time and writing speed to keep this new magical world going alongside the odd future of Memory Lost and the newly released sequel, Mind Chase (Out today! Click here to check it out).

I enjoyed writing the Root Conspiracy books so far, but I LOVED writing Court Mage and the other books in this series.

Follow Edmath Donroi, a young mage on his path to joining the imperial court and making a name for himself.

Mysteries, magic, and love await in…

Thanks for reading!

I really appreciate all of you and your support. The more of you who buy my books as they launch, the more chance I have to keep working on all my series.

So, thank you all much. I’ll write to you again soon.

 

7 Minutes of a Relaunch!

Hello everybody! Long time no blog.

Today is a special seven-minute blog, not least of all because it’s been too long.

I am relaunching a series (Starting yesterday), with the books below. The series formerly known as “Clean” is now “The Root Conspiracy” so if you’ve got the 3 books I launched these won’t be new to you. However, I suspect many of you have not read this series, so allow me to invite you to give it a shot from this point on.

These books portray a future where superhuman beings protect humanity, but they’re also the greatest threat.

Our hero, Jeth, gets in over his head when he tries to restore his lost love’s memories in book one, which draws him into a deeper conspiracy, the roots of which go deep. See what I did there?

If you like speculative futures, weird fiction, or just good thrillers with some science fiction trappings, this series is for you.

I’m proud to bring these back out in new clothes and hope I can find a larger audience with a solid representation of these stories in the right categories. Right now they’re all going to be exclusive with Amazon.com so you can read them for free if you have Kindle Unlimited.

Thanks for reading and supporting me. I’m especially happy to thank fellow author Yudhanjaya Wijeratne for his pointing out a major weak point in my approach to showing off this series. But that’s seven minutes. Read on, folks!

The Bright Image has Launched!

Things have gotten serious for this week!

First of all, Thr Bright Image, Clean Book 3, has released in ebook format! Check it out here.

This book was a bear to write, but the books I’m working on now actually have bears and other large animals in them in prominent roles, so it sort of works out. I’ve gotten to the point where I really like the book, and now it’s out there, so give it a try and see if you feel the same way.

Jethro Gall’s story continues in this volume, and next week book 2 will be on sale. Give all three a read, seriously, it would really help me out and get me blogging more positively if that’s important to you.

Thanks, and here is the cover again, with a link to the book as well.

Thanks for reading!
