February Update

February Update

I know I haven’t posted an update lately, but I’ve been super busy. Here’s what I’m working on right now or recently. #1 – Book 2 of Abduction Cycles: Library of Daemonium has been released! It’s up on Amazon for Kindle and Kindle Unlimited. The 

January Status Update

January Status Update

It’s the last day of January and it’s snowing here in Pennsylvania tonight – and probably tomorrow. It’s been a very long month for me personally but I wanted to give you an update on what’s going on.

First, as you know the worse thing that happened in Janaury was the passing of Luna Lovecat, our beloved orange tabby. My heart is still heavy from her passing and it’s hard to write her name without thinking of her and missing her.

My writing laptop also gave up the ghost about a week ago so I’ve been scrambling to get a new laptop and get all of my tools and links loaded on it. At the moment, I think I have most things but lucky all of my writing is backed up in the cloud. Hopefully.

In the good news department, I signed the audiobook deal with JS Arquin to have audiobooks made for the Abduction Cycles series. That’s exciting and I’m happy that I will be able to offer them to the listening audience.

I also sent book 2 of the Abduction Cycles, currently called Library of Daemonium, to the editor, so it’s in his hands now. We’ll see what it looks like when it comes back and how much I need to rewrite/change.

Speaking of book 2, the artist and I started the cover for it. It features Ethan, Nia and a big, ugly monster they run into in book 2. So far, it looks great! I’m looking for a mid February release – hopefully.

I finished up the rough draft of book 3, tentatively called Tomb of Pendragon. I think it turned out great but it needs to go through re-write before I send it to the editor in February. Drop me a line if you want to be a beta/alpha reader.

Book 4, Ruins of Camelot, has been started and I just finished writing chapter 13 earlier this evening. I have some ideas for it so we’ll see how they turn out!

Some people ask how quickly I can write a book. Just to give you an idea, I wrote 48,282 words this month. That’s about average for me. So if you put that into book terms – That’s 2 months for a 96K book or a little over 2 and a half months for a 100K-120K book.

That’s it for January. Considering the bad things that happened to me this month, I’m really hoping February is MUCH better.

Thanks for everyone’s support! Feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you thought of my books.

I signed a deal with JS Arquin to produce an audio version of the Abduction Cycles: Village of Hawkshead. The deal extends to the other books of the Abduction Cycles series too, so you will finally be able to get them from Audible – for

December Writing Update (LitRPG/GameLit)

December Writing Update (LitRPG/GameLit)

I’ve been busy writing, editing and publishing lately, so few updates. Here’s where everything stands right now!

First, Veil Online Book 3 is published and available on Amazon for the Kindle, in Paperback and in Hardcover.

Next, book 1 of the new gamelit, litRPG series, Ancients Online, is finished and has been sent to the editor. My previous editor is actually working on editing my dad’s memoir, so I managed to engage a new editor, Celestian Rince.

I’ve also engaged a new artist to design the cover for book 1 of the litRPG, GameLit series, Ancients Online. So far, she has been terrific and I’m super excited to see the final cover.

What? Curious about what it will look like? Would you like a sneak peak? Okay, but don’t tell anyone. This is the rough draft, which she does in 3D and then she hand paints the details.

I’m hoping to have Book 1 published in January, but we will see how the editing and the cover goes. I’m not sure about a pre-order, so stay tuned to find out more!

Book 2 of the GameLit, LitRPG series, Ancients Online is finished and ready for me to go through and rewrite/edit it before handing it off to the editor. I’m happy with the way it turned out and I look forward to tweaking it during the editing process.

Book 3 is in the works and I’m excited to see where this new adventure will lead the main characters. I already have some tie-ins with Norse mythology, but this will bring in elements of Arthurian legends as well.

In addition, I’ve also updated my website with a store so you can buy my books directly from the website. Okay, it actually links you to Amazon to buy them, but “This is the Way.”

That being said, you can order signed copies of the paperback or hardcover versions of any of the Veil Online. Book 1 is added already and I will be adding books 2 & 3 shortly.

That’s it for now, it’s time to get back to writing.

RealRPG Ancients Online – Book 1 Complete

I finished up the first draft of the RealRPG Ancients Online, Book 1. It’s not as long as any of the Veil Online books, but I think it’s an enjoyable read and I’ll probably add some additional details during the re-write. This is a GameLit/LitRPG/RealRPG
