The Dying Times has Arrived

Posted by:

I hold in my hand an accomplishment at long last.  The Dying Times has returned from the printer, and I have the first copy ever on my desk.  This is truly a happy day.  I have accomplished something that many people talk about, but few people actually ever get around to doing – seeing my first novel in print.

So, between now and the end of the month (sometime at or before November 22nd, 2010), you will be able to hold ...

The Dying Times Uploaded to Smashwords

Posted by:

I have uploaded the book to Smashwords so that it will be available to everyone who does not want to buy it in print, those who find eBooks more economical, those who prefer to read on an eReader, and those who fall outside of a reasonable geographical proximity to the United States (who would otherwise have great difficulty reading the book).

The eBook version should be available simultaneously with the print version.  The only thing I can guarantee ...

The Dying Times – Press Release Issued for Free

Posted by:

I wanted to spend a few moments talking about a website that I was told about called 24-7pressrelease.com.  I have issued my first press release (for free).  They have other paid options, but I won’t be getting into that until much closer to the time the book comes out.  Right now, just a little stir is plenty.  If I over-publicize right now, I run the risk of both burning myself out and the momentum ...

First Two Sample Chapters from Book 2

Posted by:

I have posted the first two sample chapters from The War of the Dead: Andy’s Story, the second book in The Survivor Chronicles series.  It can be found linked on the book’s official home page here.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of reaching 250 pages so far on the second book.  Hopefully, it is as well received as the first book or even better!

The second book takes place beginning before the events in the first one, carries through those ...

It has been a long time in the making, but, finally, Nadene’s story shall be told to the world!  I am very pleased that ...

Another Review in for The Dying Times

Posted by:

This review is from Nickie Hopkins, an independent reviewer.  She said,
Unlike Stephen King or even Jack London, “Dying Times” was easier to follow, and yet at the same time, just as interesting. An excellent read.  If this book was a movie, I would be the first one in line to buy my ticket.
– Nickie Hopkins, Reviewer
Thanks, Nickie!  Glad to have positive reviews coming in!

Working on The Dying Times Cover

Posted by:

Getting some work done on The Dying Times: Nadene’s Story‘s cover.  I’m thinking it’s not looking too bad.  It took a little bit of editing to get it whipped into shape.  All in all, I’m liking it.

This is, of course, a lower resolution version of the final cover.  Posting the actual one up on the website would burn way too much bandwidth.  Besides, the fine detail can be saved for the print version.

From left to right, back row:  John, Wayne, ...

Review from Author at Lighthouse Dreams

Posted by:

Though certainly not the same genre of book, there are plenty of positive things said and a couple of things for me to work on before the final release in November.  Here are the reviewer’s words:

“This book shows definite potential to be a great novel.  It held my interest although it needs further development of the characters and dialogue.  Despite it’s flaws, it has good flow though it does suffer from some continuity problems.  I do appreciate the chance to ...
