Easing back into things

Posted by:

So, I’ve been away from the blog for a bit, and the best explanation I can offer is that it was best to spend any writing energy I could muster on the fiction work instead of burning time here. That goes hand in hand with not having many updates to post or much to say that anyone visiting didn’t already know. So, I’ve focused on the books, and lately, I’ve been able to get a lot more e-ink on e-paper, ...

I Got an iPad and Quit My Job, etc.

Posted by:

All right. Some updates now that I’ve settled in. I have gotten an iPad and a wireless keyboard, linked everything up through Google Docs, and now I’m “technologically advanced,” I suppose. With everything linked up, I can work on any device I have and the updates carry over automatically to everything else.

I have left my job as a dispatcher and have decided not to go back to another 911 center on a full-time basis. So, I’m a full-time writer and ...

A Brief Hospital Trip

Posted by:

I’m lucky to be out of the hospital. I talked briefly about it on the Facebook page, but I’ll go ahead and update those who don’t visit there. I developed an infection in my leg, and for that, I had to visit the hospital for about four days. Everything’s fine now–well, still a bit sore in the affected leg, but I’ll be fine now–and I’m back at it.

The paperback and hardcover release for Consuls of the Vicariate will be soon. ...

It is with great reverence and sorrow that I share the news of the death of L.C. Evans. A fellow author and kind friend to everyone at Kindle Boards, Linda will be missed. The announcement came from Barbara Silkstone early this morning:

It is with great sorrow that I share  ~ We lost one of our own last night. Our beloved and lovely lady, Linda Evans succumbed to her battle with cancer.

The Author Turns 29 Tomorrow

Posted by:

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the 29th anniversary of my existence. 30 is only around the corner. 🙂

What do I want for my birthday? Well, if you’re here reading this, you’ve likely already given it: your support. Even though I’d love to hear more from you guys who visit, I know there are lurkers out there who come by regularly and read the posts, check out the books, and enjoy the works. So, my birthday ...

Thieves in the Night: A Fate Worse than Death

Posted by:

When I started writing The Dying Times almost two years ago, my subconscious played a bigger role than I realized. In imaging our personal horrors, we often think about a terrible end – the horrible death that comes as a result of whatever caused it. In the backdrop of our minds, though, lies the place where the culmination of everything surrounding that death exists. Though I write about the dead rising in the series, the fear lies more in acquiring ...

Readers are Awesome

Posted by:

I just had several good reviews with great commentary, and I just wanted to say that I think readers are awesome. That’s all readers; you don’t have to exclusively read my stuff for the message to apply or anything like that. Books are such an interesting way for human beings to connect, and it’s unlike anything else. So, thank you, guys. I really appreciate it.

On the Events in Egypt

Posted by:

I have taken a little time out from writing to observe the events going on in Cairo, Egypt, these past few days.  It would appear that the events have become more violent.  Hopefully, the violence will calm down, but I don’t see it happening.

As a member of a country that had a very violent revolution, I can only say that I hope that the transition from President Mubarak to a more democratic and free ...

Looking Towards the Future

Posted by:

As I have substantially passed the halfway mark in writing The Survivor Chronicles series, there is always forward looking to consider.  I can’t always write about zombies – well, I could, but I don’t want the stories to become stale or boring.  So, I have to consider what is next in store for your poor, fledgling writer.

I’ve been asked, but I can’t tell anyone the answer to the question, “Where will you go from here?”  It’s not because I am ...

Much has been said of my writing style

Posted by:

From several less-than-stellar reviews on Amazon, I can only gather that many people who are now reading The Dying Times are not checking out samples of the book prior to purchasing or not reading the samples available on Amazon.

At any rate, I want to say to anyone who might find this post:  please read the samples of anything you are considering buying, you’ll probably be happier with your purchases.  Now, onto the rest of the post.

I think that the chief ...
