New Release: EverMage: Clash of Chaos

When I wrote the first draft of EverMage back in 2011, I had no idea that it would end up being one of my bestselling novels - selling over 12,000 copies and generating over 2.5 million pagereads through Amazon's Kindle Unlimited program, and being featured as a Deal of the Month on Amazon back in 2015.

New Release: The Engineer’s Escape

One of the most difficult aspects of being a full-time writer is sticking to self-set deadlines. Looking back at my planned release schedule for 2016 makes me laugh...And it's not a case of me looking at a blank page and saying "This looks like a job for future me," either. It's more of a case […]

Awesome New Cover for EverMage

I've been working with an amazing illustrator who has designed an awesome piece of artwork to represent the EverMage series. Though the previous cover has served me well, I created it at a time when there just wasn't a budget for custom illustrations of this caliber and I've learned that how my work is perceived is greatly […]

Soul Breaker

I've just finished updating my series, Soul Breaker. After a bit of fiddling, I've turned a 9 part short story series into 3 nicely-paced novellas and have dropped the price to give everyone a better value for their money. I feel that releasing such a long story in so many parts scared away a few potential readers, […]

Review Copies for Game Alive

I'm very pleased to announce that my first full-length YA Fantasy novel, Game ALive, is up on Amazon. Up until this point, I've focused on short stories, and branching out into longer material has been a great experience with regards to getting more in-depth with character development and world building. It's also been great having an […]

What a Month

August has been a very exciting time for me as an independent author.  I managed to produce over 25 new pieces of writing and sell over 3,400 copies of my works across all of my pen names.  The number still blows my mind.  Especially given that I spent the first two weeks of August on […]

BRAINSSS! My Next Zombie Story is Here

Zombies are so much fun work with in a story.  There's a tremendous amount of material to draw inspiration from, but because the monster is an embodiment of something so primal, the fear of death, it's pretty open as to what exactly the zombies can and can't do in a story. In my latest story, […]

Crossing a Threshold

August has been my best-selling month ever, with almost 70 published titles across Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and, most recently, Kobo.  It's been an exciting experience watching my daily average of sales take off as I steadily write and publish. It's truly an amazing time to be a writer.  For the first time in history, […]

After seeing such awesome results in July, I've been throwing everything I've got into writing and publishing new works for August. Last month was my largest month yet as far as book sales go, netting me over $5000, but I'm pushing myself to outperform July even though I was on vacation for a week of […]

New Cover for Science Fiction Short Story, Fracture

I like to perform all sorts of tweaks and experiments to see what gets better results.  My first cover for Fracture was made very quickly and I wasn't completely happy with how the ship stood out.  It also didn't highlight the fact that there is a very awesome space battle in it as well.  So, […]

New Short Story - The Dreamer and June Results

July is here already and my 30-day 30-short stories experiment has ended.  It'll probably take me a while to get around to publishing all of them since each cover takes anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on how long it takes me to be happy with it. With that said, I've just published […]

Fracture - a Science Fiction Short Story

A few months ago I had a very bizarre dream involving space and two warring civilizations. When I woke up, I jumped over to my computer and typed out as much as I could remember before it faded away. Fracture is the result of that dream. Fracture follows the story of a female scientist aboard […]
