Catching up

So I realize it’s been a long long time since I posted here last, but I’m ending that dry spell here and now. I’m not dead, I’m still writing, and I’ve got a few things going so I thought I’d at least make a post or two and catch up a little. First of all, yes, the next book in the Cortanis saga—you didn’t think I was going to stop with just three books, did you?—is underway and off to[…]

Unbound 2018

Unbound 2018

I realize I’m quite a bit behind. But I wanted to post this here because to not do so would be a waste of my friend Kerri’s time, who graciously came to Unbound Book Festival in April, 2018 at my request to photograph the panel I was on, called “Do It Yourself: Self-Publishing 101”.

Further down the list you get to such estimable books such as Jurassic Park, Starship Troopers, and no[…]

The experience was a very positive one for me. This was the first time I came out and presented my writing to the public, at a[…]

Book 3 Update

Book 3 Update

The third book of the Cortanis Trilogy, Soldier of Cortanis, is finally in completed first draft form. I finished the draft this past weekend, and this week I’m giving it an editing pass before handing it over to my editor for its first review. Hopefully Adria can find time to turn it around to me in a few weeks, after which time I’ll do another round of editing before sending it out to my beta readers. Assuming she doesn’t find[…]
