  • Signing with Hartwood Publishing

    This post may ramble a bit as I explain the situation, so let me just summarize everything right up front. I’ve signed a contract with Hartwood Publishing letting them publish my novel Bold Bounty, an historical romance that has ties to my Werewolf Saga. Okay, now for the details … I learned of  Hartwood Publishing by […]

  • Where’d My Horror Go?

    So, I’m currently working on a short novel (maybe novella) called A Light Beyond. I left a Western novel called Badger’s Bend to work on this one. Before that I wrote another Western novel called Orphan. And before that was a realistic — or mainstream — novel called The Teacher. What do all these (so far unpublished) works have in […]

  • My Indie Publishing Rebirth

    Sometime back Facebook’s Timehop feature showed me I’d posted about how many words I’d written that day on a young adult novel called Afterlife. The original post was four years old. I reposted it with a caption about how the book still wasn’t sold. Harvey Stanbrough, the man who once accepted my novella Inheritance for […]

  • Therapy in 88,404 words

    So, yesterday was a good day. I finished the first draft of a novel tentatively titled The Teacher.  This is the first new novel I’ve completed in three years. Needless to say, finally getting over some issues that kept me from writing and actually finishing a new book felt really, really good. Back when After Obsession was […]

  • Prometheus Syndrome Available Now

    Josh Cooper has always had trouble managing his anger. His rockabilly band in Florida went through so many personnel changes that finally Josh’s best friend, Tony “Boozer” Curtis, called it quits and moved to Nashville. But then Josh got a call from Boozer, asking if he’d like to join him in Nashville for a fresh start, […]

  • Thoughts on Self Publishing

    Is there a more controversial topic among writers than the dreaded one about publishing your own work? Probably not. As little as 10 years ago it was unthinkable for anyone aspiring to commercial success to even consider vanity publishing. Of course, back then it was pretty dang expensive, unless you got tied up with a […]

  • Stone Thread to Publish Inheritance

    I have reached an agreement that allows Stone Thread Publishing to release the electronic version of my novella Inheritance. The release date is April 1, 2014. Here’s what I’ve submitted for the synopsis of the book: Lynette Cook knows about abuse. She learned it from her father and, later, had the lessons reinforced by the boyfriend […]

  • Halloween in a Box

    Have you been to one of the Halloween superstores yet? Believe me, I have. They’re a great place to go, though I tend to only get a few pieces there each year. I prefer to put my costumes together myself to ensure I don’t encounter anyone else who is dressed just like me. That’s harder […]
