Muirwood trilogy coming to

Thursday, December 16th, 2010 @ 4:58 pm | Comments Off

I started the Muirwood trilogy over 4 years ago. Some wanted to read a physical copy of the books, instead of being tethered to a computer screen or flipping a stack of printer paper. Books are books, after all, and not everyone has a Kindle or iPad yet. I would like to announce that copies of Muirwood... Read More

I originally wrote this story for Deep Magic when we started the world-building idea and had readers contribute to what was happening. Since my new novel will take place in this world, I thought I would share the story with a few tweaks in naming convention. This is classic high... Read More

During the holidays in December, I was able to start on the third installment of the Muirwood series. I have completed the first 80 pages so far and hope to finish the project by September 2010. There are a lot of words to write between here and there, but I... Read More

October 1, 2009 - finished the first draft of Blight of Muirwood. Right now, it's around 450 pages, so longer than the first book and I'm heaving a sigh of relief for being done. Last weekend my wife read it all and we've had some good discussions about it. I... Read More

Sprinting to the end…

I am almost finished writing BLIGHT. Only a few chapters left. It's always an exciting thing to finish a novel. My guess is I'll be done before Halloween and then will be looking for some readers to help critique and edit it (you know who you are...Mike Loos). This novel... Read More

Had a neat surprise this morning when I checked my e-mail. My sister Emily, an artist in the Boise area, did a little sketch of a scene from WRETCHED. She's also been giving great advise on the sequel, BLIGHT, which I appreciate. It was neat seeing the scene through her... Read More
