In other words… What the hell have you been doing in 2018?
Where is book two?
Where are the new blog posts? (asked no one)
Yes, yes, I know. It’s been a long time since I updated the website. It’s been a long time since I updated the status of book two. It’s just been a long time. What can I say? I’ve been working on a lot of things. (How cryptic.) Different stories and ideas that will be released soon. Yes, I said soon. I have developed a schedule (after many years of trying) that seems to work for me, where I can balance my fiction writing, blog writing and the business side of the job, that no one sees. (What a complaining complainee?) Fine, I will get to the important stuff.
(Geeze, could I have a longer title? Gotta trigger those Amazon algorithms somehow.) COMING END OF SEPTEMBER/EARLY OCTOBER. I have completed the third or fourth draft. (I lost count.) Beta readers and a good old-fashioned editor will be the final steps in the process. If you are interested in being a beta reader, you can send me an e-mail: email@example.com I gotta warn you though, being a beta reader means you will need to provide extensive feedback on the book. The good, the bad and the ugly. Like a book report. Maybe, even a diorama.
Coming in 2019. I am excited about this one. It is in 3rd person. Yay! I have a draft finished.
THE BEGINNING IS EVERYTHING, Book Three of Blake’s Apocalypse Account
Spring 2019. That’s right, I have already started the first draft.
Multiple short stories will be published on this website and on Wattpad, in the coming months. For free. They will also be available on Amazon, but not free. At a later date, they will be compiled into one paperback. They all take place in the same universe as my novels.
That’s right, I have some fanfiction ideas and a serialized story that I will be posting on Wattpad and this website, on a television-like schedule. Why fanfiction? Why not? It’s a lot of fun and I am looking at it as writing exercises, where I can experiment. If you are wondering what fictional world my fanfiction takes place in, well, you will just have to wait and see. To give you a hint, the title of the serialized story is, CHOSEN.
I will be posting a new blog post weekly. At least weekly. That is a schedule I can stick to. If something new comes up I will post it. If not, I will stick to my schedule.
That’s about it for now. I am excited to start sharing all of this with you. I have learned from this past year. The good and the bad from my hesitation and halting schedule. The best thing about all this time between releases is, I have spent tons of time writing, creating a backlog of stories, that I can release in quick succession.

Back to it.
