Conjuring a title for your book

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011 @ 10:55 pm | 1Comments

I'll admit, this one has me stumped right now. Normally, a book's title is one of the first things I am able to come up with when starting on a project. I announced on this blog previously that my new project is called Kenatos and so that has been the... Read More

I'm so excited that everything worked out. The books look amazing and it is great being able to hold them in your hands instead of reading it on a laptop screen. I love the covers and the interior layout design - they did a great job over at CreateSpace. The books are available... Read More

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

Kenatos backstory

Friday, October 15th, 2010 @ 7:06 pm | Comments Off

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

Over the last month I have been reading the entire trilogy and finished Scourge on Wednesday night. I made some final edits and have now posted it to the website here: I have had some great feedback so far (thank you Emily, Mel, Jenna, and Rachelle) and would... Read More

Muirwood trilogy is finished!

I finished the final touches on The Scourge of Muirwood this week, wrapping up a trilogy that has been several years in the making. There is still much to do still - like re-reading the entire trilogy to see how it flows and blends, but having finished the series is... Read More

The Scourging Begins

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

Blight is finished

Friday, October 2nd, 2009 @ 6:30 pm | Comments Off

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…

Friday, September 11th, 2009 @ 6:45 pm | Comments Off

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
