What’s Up Doc?

Howdy all! I’ve been absent for quite some time from my blog and social media, and plan to continue my aloofness through the end of the year at least. At the same time, I’ve noticed there have still been quite a few visitors to my blog every month. So I’m going to write a blog post a month to let you know what I have been doing.

I’m Writing!

Yes, I am writing…A LOT. Half way through the year, I decided to cut out the distractions and improve my comedy writing. So, I’ll be releasing quite a bit next year, but for the rest of this year I plan to continue to be a reclusive writer and pamper my body and soul.

Call for Obstruction on Audio

At the end of last month, I did release Call for Obstruction on audio. It’s narrated by Jack Wallen, who did an awsome job with the characters, especially Margery. Go get it>>

Boy, was it FUN to produce audio with Jack. I really look forward to doing more books with him in the future. Fall for Freedom is scheduled next, and I’m thinking it will be a free download on NoiseTrade.

Fall for Freedom

And speaking of Fall for Freedom, it’s in Beta on WattPad. Read it now or wait for some major changes in the next version. It’s a prequel to Call for Obstruction and explains Barry’s conception. You’ll be introduced to his crazy fallen angel father, Azael, and his mentor in book 2 and 3, Pete, who you meet at the end of book 1. You’ll also meet the demon, Boss, who possesses Pete. Beta readers are loving his craziness, and I’m hoping you will too. Go read it>>

That’s all I’ve got for ya this time. Have a GREAT month and enjoy Halloween as much as I will!

No One Is Happy To See Gita The Demon

Part 8 of Warrant for Damnation is available to read on WattPad. This week no one is happy to see Gita the Demon. Enjoy!

Go to part 8 or start reading below.

The Bad News, I’m an addict; The Good News, I’m in Recovery

ScreamFor the last few years I forgot my main career goal, become a successful fiction writer. I was slapped in the face with this realization back in April. Years of goals not met sent me over the edge. That and the stress in my life was threatening to kill me, literally. Yes, literally. My immune system was on fire when I was knocked on my ass. I was an addict hitting rock bottom, my drug of choice distractions.

I’m certainly NOT looking for pity. It was one of the best things to ever happen to me. Sometimes we need to fall to get back up stronger and wiser. Now, I’m here to say, NO MORE!

The last few months have been very productive. That means I can fulfill one of my annual goals: telling fans what’s new and exciting in the worlds I create. something I’ll start doing quarterly for all my stories and monthly for The Courier series. This is my quarterly check in with fans.

margeryI sat down and brainstormed on specific content and announcements. What might the readers of The Courier series want? The answer came to me right away. Margery the demon. She makes sense because everyone who has read the first book mentions her. So I had a conversation with Margery. Those of you who have read Call for Obstruction know that Margery is the antagonist. You also know she’s a bit of a chain smoker, and that her cigarettes are packed with magic you want to avoid. Well, Margery has decided she wants to tell her backstory. Let’s just say that when she rolled one of her cigarettes between thumb and index finger, I got out of her way and let her have what she wants. So I’ll hand my blog over to Margery once a month, and I guarantee you’ll love her posts or you’ll risk her wrath. I’ll also email her stories to email subscribers, something I’ll set up in the next few weeks.

Call for Obstruction CoverI’d like to remind everyone that Call for Obstruction is available for free and will remain free through the end of the year at least. It’s been on Wattpad and is now available on Smashwords. And it’s absolutely positively edited and finished. In case you missed it, the story also has a new book cover that I revealed a few months back. It’s by the amazing RL Treadway of Artlink.

What’s that you ask? When’s the next book coming out. Well, I’m in the middle of a rewrite that’s taking longer than expected. Warrant for Damnation will release in parts starting the fourth quarter of this year. The book cover for book 2 was released a few months ago. Want to see it, CLICK HERE.

I’m also editing old flash fiction stories and re-releasing them on Wattpad. Road to Nowhere was released this week. I’m going to try to re-release a story a week and will put a link in the right column, but we’ll see how that goes. Read them while you can. They’ll only be there temporarily before they’re officially published in a collection.

That’s all for this quarter. Until October. Whoo hoo! Halloween!
