Yes, you read that right. Over the weekend, I finished Beginning, the final book in my trilogy. It still needs revision, but I’m going to bust my ass over the next month to get that done and get it out to my editor. The current release date is January 1, 2016—exactly 3 years after the previous […]

My first book series was named after the Dylan Thomas poem Do Not Go Gentle Into The Good Night. I quote the poem in the book, and it’s read by one of the characters. It’s a fantastic piece, and one I’m happy to be associated with, even if third-hand. Now, I’ve discovered a reading one of […]

There’s a problem with having my book available in so many places on the web – it reduces the control I have over some of the factors that go into selling the book. Chief among those is the price. To wit: I can’t make my book free on Kindle. At least, not without some help. […]
