Hello Friends. I know it’s been a while since I posted anything here but I’ve been hard at work on the final edits for the new book, The Rush of Betrayal (book one and two). I’ll have the book covers done in the next week or so and my goal is to have the first book available for purchase by the end of June 2012 (with book two available sometime later this year – my goal is October 2012).
When the cover for Book One is done, I’ll post a copy of it here so you can see what it looks like – meanwhile, I thought I’d include a sample of Chapter One today. Let me get any legal type stuff I might need out of the way…. Read More…
Hello again, Friends! Yes, I’m still alive. I know, I know, it’s been a few months since last I posted anything here and I’m sure you were all worried about–
Seriously! You think people were actually worried about you? WOW! What an ego! When did this happen?
Okay, okay, settle down I was just warming up and–
Enough with the chit-chat, let’s get down to business here. If people are here, it’s because they want to know what’s going on so spill it already!
Fine. I’ll forget about the drum roll and just get on with it. The reason I haven’t been blogging much lately is because Read More…
I’m sorry I haven’t been around as much lately, but the holiday season has been a busy one for me and my family. We just celebrated Christmas #1 this past Sunday. Christmas Celebration #2 will occur on Christmas Eve, #3 on Christmas Day and #4 on New Years Day. Not that I’m complaining, I’d much rather have the celebrations spread out over a couple of weeks rather than jamming them all together over just a couple of days. More fun for everyone.
Also, I’ve been picking up some extra hours at the bookstore. We have had a busy December which is encouraging. People in our community seem really excited about buying locally and supporting the small and independent businesses. Thank you.
When I can, I’ve squeezed in some writing on my new novel, but I assume I won’t be back to writing on a regular basis until after the holidays are over. That’s okay…since I spent the bulk of 2011 working to get The Penitent Assassin published I figure I’ve earned a few weeks off to celebrate with my wife and kids this holiday season. In addition to more writing in 2012, I intend to blog more regularly too. My goal is to create at least one writing related blog post per week.
Shameless plug time. Are you giving an e-reader as a gift or do you think you’ll be getting one for Christmas? Want to download my fantasy book, The Penitent Assassin, and help out an Indie Author? Follow the links on the blog here to any of the various websites where it is sold–Amazon, Smashwords, B&N…and thank you so much for your support! I hope you enjoy my book and Happy Reading!!
Okay, shameless plug time over — on to the Holiday Wish from me to you. My wife had a little fun over on JibJab the other day and this is what she came up with. Here is our Merry Christmas JibJab video from our family to yours. We all wish you a happy and healthy holiday season and a very Merry Christmas.
I know, it’s a few days late, but between family obligations and work, I haven’t been around my computer for the past few days. That said, I’d still like to wish you all a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving…errr…weekend…and hope Thursday and the past few days have been good ones for you and your family.
In addition to eating too much turkey (and stuffing, and sides and etc) and working a few extra hours at the bookstore on Black Friday, I’ve been fighting off a cold. Seems this time of year is not kind to me. Last year I was sick around Thanksgiving and apparently it is becoming an unwelcome trend. I don’t feel completely miserable unless I’m attempting to sleep…sooooo…that means I’ve been sleeping in short shifts, two-to-three hours at a time. Both last night and this morning, I maxed out at less than two hours. Fortunately, I’m only working four hours at the bookstore this evening and then hopefully, fingers crossed, I’ll find a way to sleep through the night tonight. (Okay, I’m not holding my breath on that but, boy it would be nice!)
Black Friday…..Hmmmm….Nope. I think I’ll just delete out the couple of mini-rants I wrote regarding Black Friday. Specifically the way people drove….and behaved….
Delete….delete….delete….and we’re moving on.
We are? To what? My brain is fumbling with ideas. Too tired, it’s crying out to me, much too tired to compose anything much longer. Must save some brain power for work this evening. Must conserve energy. Must shut down….
So for now — that is all. I hope to get back to writing more here and on my new novel next week (hopefully when I’m healthy again!)
Have a safe and happy holiday season!
