Happier, Forgotten. A Playlist In Progress for a Work in Progress about a Life in Progress

It’s November, and I’ve decided to dive in and do NaNoWriMo again this year. I failed last year (but that book will still be finished and released – it’s just on hold!). But this month I’m working on a brand new book. It’s called ‘Happier, Forgotten’ and it’s gonna be depressing as hell. Kind of like if Morrissey and The Cure had a baby and that baby was a book. I hinted at it a while back, but never got around to writing it. But it’s been back there in…

Beta Readers for ‘A Confession’

The book I wrote over about a two week period in November 2015 is now to a point where I am ready to get some reader feedback. It’s gone through some editing and rewrites, and will be going back for another round of rewrites soon too – but I’m hoping to get some reader feedback too so I can get additional views on what works and what doesn’t. If you’re interested in getting a digital copy of this early draft, let me know – I’d be happy to send a…

“The Letter”

Finally forced myself to set aside some time to write what I refer to as “the letter” – for the upcoming book. It’s one of the last two major rewrites of my first round of edits that I felt needed to be added to give the book the proper ending. Just one more major portion I need to expand out a little and then the first round of edits will be complete. Still quite a bit more to go (another few rounds of edits probably) – but the major reworking…

Why My Next Book May Very Likely Not Be Self-Published

I’m an indie author. Or self-published author … or whatever it is you call someone who wrote a book and decided to publish it through channels other than the traditional ones. At least, that is, as far as my debut novel, The Trouble With Being God, goes. As you probably know, I’m working on my next book – albeit a bit slowly (we just had our second son, so I am obliged to take a break). This second book is definitely superior to my first – and is a rather…

New Project: The Grabbing Hands (NaNoWriMo)

If you were a fan of my first novel, The Trouble With Being God, you’ll be happy to hear another project is underway.  Previously I mentioned my next novel would be Three Bricks Down and To the Left (book one in my Horizon Trilogy), but I’ve decided to partake in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), which means I need to crank out a 50,000 word novel by the end of the month.  Considering I didn’t decide to actually participate until yesterday, that gives me just 22 days to do it…
