  • Books of 2015: The Year of the Western

    I read 32 books this year, which happens to be the same number as last year. There were some really, really good books, and some stinkers. Some were re-reads for school, but most were first-timers. And the majority of the reading I did on my own seemed to be novels set in the Old West. […]

  • The Books of 2014

    My goal for 2014 was to read 30 books. I did that, plus three. Of those, I only gave a 1-star review to one title, with everything else getting at least three stars. That’s a pretty good year of reading. I thought I’d recap the highlights here, as I tend to do at the start […]

  • Books of 2013

    It’s become something of a tradition for me to wrap up a year writing about the books I read during the past 12 months. So, here’s the best and worst of the 30 titles I read in 2013*. Let’s start with the worst. The good news is there was nothing so bad that I gave […]

  • Free Read: Sample Chapter of Amara’s Prayer

    Last week I posted the Prologue to my new novel, Amara’s Prayer, which will be released in August by Bad Moon Books. It will be available in trade paperback and e-book formats, plus a limited edition signed hardcover that will be available IF there are enough pre-orders for it. Time is running out very fast on […]

  • Amara’s Prayer Prologue

    My new novel, Amara’s Prayer, will be out next month in trade paperback and e-book. There is also a limited edition signed hardcover that will be available IF there are enough pre-orders for it. You can pre-order yours by clicking this link to Bad Moon Books. In an effort to pique your interest, I’m posting the […]

  • Nadia’s Children finally released!

    When the first edition of Ulrik was published in the summer of 2008 I never would have guessed it would be a five-year wait until the next volume of The Werewolf Saga was released. After all, Ulrik ended on something of a cliffhanger and I began writing the next volume almost immediately. Alas, the trouble with […]

  • Libraries and librarians

    So, I finished up my library book tour yesterday in the nice little town of Blanchard, Okla. I had a good time at each stop and met some great readers (Heidi, Kyler, Lauryn), aspiring writers (Kimberly and Amanda), and some fantastic librarians each time. For the record, I suck at remembering names and have included […]

  • Best books read in 2011

    The end of the year is a good time for lists, right? I gave you one yesterday. Well, here’s another one. I’m sure in some cases you’ll look at these titles and be amazed I just now got around to them. But maybe that’ll help you understand why there’s nothing published in 2011 on the […]

  • Five Memorable Christmas Gifts

    As Christmas 2011 fades behind us, I thought I’d take a look back at the five GOOD gifts that stand out in my memory. We’ll leave out the bad ones for now. What are some of the gifts you remember most? These aren’t in any particular order. 1. The Big Wheel. I remember it being […]

  • Some publishing news

    I’ve been meaning to post some of this stuff for a while and keep forgetting it. As you may have noticed, I haven’t had a new book out since Bad Moon Books released Little Graveyard on the Prairie last year, and with it being an expensive limited edition, probably not a lot of people shelled […]
