Finale of Anathema

I’m sure everyone is caught up by now with Anathema so here are your last two: Chapter 19 & Chapter 20! I hope I hope everyone enjoyed the story. I plan on writing the next story this fall for NaNoWriMo 2014.

Prince of the Dawn Released

The year of the Night Reign has begun!

The day has finally arrived. The Night Reign Chronicles: Prince of the Dawn has been officially released in paperback. You can find the book at the Createspace store at the link below. The book should also hit the main Amazon site in about a week. The ebook was suppose to be released on the Kindle Store today, but unfortunately, the formatting was seriously messed up. I will be working extra hard to get that fixed and released as quickly as possible for those of you who want an ebook version instead of the physical book.

So again, a huge thank you to everyone who has helped me these past few years to get this book ready for release. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

The light at the end of the tunnel

potd cover

There is something to be said for sticking it through until the end.  When it involves writing a novel, it can be a very long tunnel that you have to wade through to reach that end goal, that glorious light of accomplishment. I’ve been writing this book for about a year now and I can happily say that I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. It wasn’t easy though.

Many people dream of being a writer, a novelist, an author. They are a people of dreams who want to share their fantastic vision with everyone else. They are storytellers who create wondrous new worlds and skalds that believe in retelling history with a bit of flare to remember what has happened.  There is power in dreams and the worlds that are created with that power can be awe inspiring. No wonder there are so many people who aspire to be a writer.

Yet, most will never see the light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve seen various statistics on a writer’s success rate, which if you take an average of them, comes out to  about 6,400:1 odds that you will get published. Not very good odds is it. Still there is hope.

This average, however, is based on traditional methods of publishing your work. You find a literary agent and then they find you a publishing company to release your work. That is a lot of middlemen between you and your readers. While it may work for some people, for a growing number of new writers (like myself), the ends don’t justify the means any longer.

Organic Writing

The good news is that I finally finished my novel Battle Angels! At just over 98K words, my third novel was an amazing experience to write as I just love the story and the characters so much.
