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!

2017 Last Words

Well, I missed a lot of blogging this year.

I can’t promise next year will see me on this site more often, but that is the plan.

So, as for 2017, I’m spending a few minutes of the last hour typing these words.

2017 has been a pretty good year for me, though far from perfect.

My mother was diagnosed with a serious disease, however possible to treat.

I published three books, Tenlyres, Soul Art, and The Mangrove Suite. I’m happy with all three of these books, especially the last one on the list.

I talked a lot with a few of my friends, and almost none with most of the others. I started a podcast, Alive After Reading, and continued the other podcast with my cohost.

I figured out which of my medications are still valuable, but at a pretty high cost in time.

Anyway, I’m tired. It’s a late hour, the last one of the year. Happy new year.

Thanks for reading, and I hope to talk to you again soon.

2017
So long 2017.

Good night sweet prince.

Sayonara sucker!

Now we can’t pretend the whole thing didn’t happen, but we can try to do better next time.

Good luck, everyone.

Mental

sky-173742_1920

Good Monday to all and to all a good morning.

I am facing quite a challenge today (To tackle as soon as I stop yawning every five seconds). Today is the first day of a new attempt at a work schedule. The schedule? Eight AM to Eleven AM will be writing time on weekdays.

Three hours. Three hours of writing all in a row.

That may not sound like a lot, but overall it means about 4000 words if I stick to it with enthusiasm and discipline.

I would love to do that many words, that much story, each day. I will love it, is how I should write that.

The work of a few hours a day will really add up fast. And my current project, the sequel to Hunter and Seed, really needs to get done.

In related news, I am editing a much longer book into a pair of smaller books now. We will see how difficult that gets, especially because I have to give priority to the sequel I mentioned above. My hopes for getting two series out this year are high.

But right now, it all feels a little mental, as the Brits might say.

Hence the title of this post.

My books can still be found on Amazon and elsewhere if anyone is interested.

Thanks for reading.

Tenlyres Complete Release

My latest book, a little novel called Tenlyres, is out today!

For those who have been reading the serial, this release goes all the way to the end of the story. That is well ahead of the spot where the serial is right now.

It’s been a hard road, writing this book. It’s been worth it. Buy a copy for the price of a cup of coffee and support me and the serial.

Tenlyres Now Available for Preorder

ebook-tenlyres-complete-v2-white-mq

I am not going to beat around the bush.

“Tenlyres: The Complete Serial Novel” is now available for preorder on Amazon.com and Kobo.

Amazon
Kobo

*Available in more stores soon.

For those not yet familiar with the story, “Tenlyres” is an epic fantasy with advanced technology, ancient monuments, and plenty of action. Everything is shown from the point of view of the heroin. The pace is quick. Even if you don’t normally read epic fantasy you should give this book a try.

As you can probably tell, I am super excited about this release.

For those who have been following the serial, this volume contains everything that has been serialized so far, as well as the conclusive final part of the novel. All of these parts got another coat of polish and edits to make everything fit together tight. So even if you’re up to date on the serial go buy this version.

I’m very proud of the book. Support me and my writing career by checking it out at the links above.

The book releases officially on February 7th.

Time to ride east.

Thanks for reading.

Incoming! Tenlyres and In Other News

stack-of-books-1001655_1920

Tenlyres is so close to being ready for release it is driving me crazy in the best way possible.

As that pilot character famously said in Star Wars: “Almost there.”

In Other News, is going to be a new (And possibly short-lived) feature of this blog and my website. It will feature me discussing works by others that I am intrigued by.

So, without further ado…

In Other News #1

Tenlyres is not the only book near completion. An author I know through her legendary “I Should Be Writing” podcast, Mur Lafferty, has a new book coming out on January 31st. It’s called Six Wakes, and I like the premise a great deal.

It is science fiction featuring a crew of clones on a space ship who wake up to find the originals murdered. And they must figure out which of them is the killer.

I love that premise, and Mur writes a tight story. My favorite of her past work was also science fiction, a relatively obscure little tale called “Marco and the Red Granny.”

Check out Mur’s site: HERE

Anyway, that’s it for my other news today.

Keep your eyes on the near future, folks.

Thanks for reading.

The work is going well. The words are flowing.

In related news, there is currently a kindle countdown sale going on for my book, “Hunter and Seed,” the sequel of which should be out in March. Follow the link below to get the ebook for 99 cents American.
