32 Days and Counting...


Readers and Friends,

Boy... do people have some interesting ideas!


Part of building a successful career as an independent author involves exposing myself to new avenues for the exchange of ideas. Specifically, I have had to dramatically increase my presence on social media. If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, etc... you may have noticed.

...and if the sudden increase in the frequency of my posts is annoying to anyone, please be assured that I take your feedback very seriously. Just say the word and I will adjust!

That said, building connections with other creative types, be they authors, poets, or artists, has been a highly entertaining experience to say the least! I have learned a lot more about every aspect of my craft as a result of expanding my reach and broadening my horizons. I am meeting a lot of very talented people, and I some of their ideas are really fascinating to me!

Hopefully, some of the folks I am meeting and getting to know think my own ideas are interesting, as well.

Now, for an update on my current projects: STORMSEND is all set to be published on schedule, releasing on March 31st. The Audiobook Edition is currently in production, as well, with an expected release date of May 31st. A month later, at the end of June, VAGABOND, the sequel to STORMSEND, will be available in print and digital formats.


I will be making Advanced Review Copies and a Special Preview Edition of VAGABOND available soon after the release of STORMSEND at the end of March.

Oh! Speaking of the Audiobook Edition, I am beside myself with excitement for this particular project. It is being narrated by two amazing vocal talents:


Peter Wicks & Frankie Porter!


You can hear them at work in the Official Book Trailer for STORMSEND




It's definitely an exciting time to be me, that's for sure!

Now he's an ex-con and his life on parole is not going well.
