A Perfect Halloween Gift!

September 28th, 2012

Halloween is fast approaching. If you like to give gifts during this season, why not a copy of The Worst Book Imaginable? It’s fun for ages 9-14, and any time you can get someone to read, it’s a good thing. Join in on the fun and order a Kindle or Nook copy today at Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble.com for $5.95. If you prefer a printed book, those will be available through Amazon next week for $12.95. I was inspired to write about a crow as a main character, and thus this series was born. I will be writing more about Preston Clay IV in the future, and all the witches and wizards he will be dealing with.

New Print Editions Coming

September 18th, 2012

The new editions of the first three novels in The Snowtear Wars series (The Chimes of Yawrana, The Ice Shadows of Arna and The Hollows of Candlewick) will be available in trade paperback soon. Book 4 of The Snowtear Wars, The Mirrors of Methalis, and The Worst Book Imaginable trade paperback books will soon also be available for the first time as well. It takes a great deal of time to put these into print, so please be patient and stay tuned for their releases.

The First Fantasy Book I Read

September 11th, 2012

Like most fantasy readers, the first novel I ever read was J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. Then, of course, I had to read The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King quickly thereafter. I loved the series, and so it started my love for fantasy, which is even stronger today. I love escapism. The world has enough tragedy that sometimes you just need it to help refresh your mind by giving it a break. I don’t think you should turn a blind eye to world events, and should always play your part in helping the world be a better place. However, jumping into a realm where anything is possible enlivens the imagination and creates a spark within me to do the same myself. The world can use more creativity, if you ask me. I see too much of a stranglehold on old ideas and ways of doing business that kill people’s dreams before they can even get off the ground. It is why I fully support the digital wave of publishing that is upon us. Let’s get those words flowing and those imaginations churning.

September 5th, 2012

Get your copy today for the Worst Book Imaginable, starring Preston Clay IV, a daytime peacekeeping crow on the York farm. This book is intended for ages 8 to 14, but is a pleasure for anyone to read. If you like magic and animals, and are a fan of the Redwall series, this is for you!

Cover Released for The Worst Book Imaginable!

August 30th, 2012

Just in time for the Halloween season, my first seasonal novel! Stay tuned for updates.

Coming in September…

August 29th, 2012

King Noran Deardrop's curse: the mangler within.

The Worst Book Imaginable! Yep that’s right. Well, that’s the title of my new Halloween novel, anyway. It’s obviously a play on words so it can get more traction, but also applies to the story. The book is done and already edited, and just needs a cover, which is currently being worked on. I will leak some information on this each day until it’s release, which I haven’t set on yet. So, keep tuned. And Snowtear fans, don’t worry, I’m still also working on The Elements of the Enclave, the final novel in the series.

Here it comes…

August 27th, 2012

Great news, everyone. Book 4 of The Snowtear Wars, The Mirrors of Methalis, has been uploaded to Amazon and Barnes & Noble’s websites. It should be on sale for your Nook and Kindle e-readers within 48 hours!

New Map for The Snowtear Wars ~ Phyre Heights

August 19th, 2012

Hey, all!

Here’s the new Phyre Heights Map from The Snowtear Wars. This region of the country of Zonack belongs to the barbarian clans, where Boris Groffen and Windreed Sinker hail from. Boris, of course, went on to become appointed as the Royal House Blacksmith. Windreed was supposed to marry Boris’s brother Boony, but abandoned him just before they took their vows. Read Book 3, The Hollows of Candlewick, to find out what happens to her!

Cover for the Fifth (and Final) Book of The Snowtear Wars

August 17th, 2012

Here it is! The cover for the last book in the series! Again, I hope to have the book sometime late this fall. At least the cover is now set, and it’s a big relief off my shoulders. Hope you like it. I will be posting it to Facebook and my website as well, and will make an announcement of it on Twitter. Let me know what you think. Cheers!

Progress on Book 4

August 15th, 2012

The final edits on Book 4 of The Snowtear Wars, The Mirrors of Methalis, is now 50% complete, and rising rapidly. I may even be done by the end of next week if I keep up this pace!
