“Elegy” A Season of Angels, Book 3

The End is Here

“The Girl in the Storm” – Review –

I’d like to offer a special thanks to Elizabeth Suggs of Editingmee.com who took time out of her busy schedule to read and review the first book in my debut series, A Season of Angels. It’s been a long, crazy and exciting adventure to bring this series to life and I’m still pinching myself thatContinue reading ““The Girl in the Storm” – Review –”

The End… Maybe… Someday, perhaps?

This is “The End”… Kinda. But not really. Well, let’s put it this way… it’s the end of the original idea that started me on the path of becoming an actual-honest-to-God published writer. But it’s not the FINAL “End”. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, “Make up your damn mind, man!” And I really amContinue reading “The End… Maybe… Someday, perhaps?”

Yes, I’m a feminist author. Why aren’t you?

It’s been noted that my stories tend to take on a feminist tone. And I won’t lie, that’s entirely on purpose. I’m flattered whenever readers point this out, as it’s one of the factors I long considered when I set out with the goal of becoming a published writer. Not that long ago, on aContinue reading “Yes, I’m a feminist author. Why aren’t you?”

Another Month, Another… Book?!

Well, friends and heathens, here I am. Staring down the barrel of another release day. This one is remarkably calmer compared to the last one. There have still been a few snafus as I draw towards the finish line. A print cover that needed to be resized, a resolution issue thanks to Ingram Sparks. AndContinue reading “Another Month, Another… Book?!”

So, it’s been a while…

So, it’s been a while. More than a while, if I’m being honest, but I do have a good reason. At least I believe that it’s a moderately decent reason. You may disagree. You may be thinking, “I actually didn’t mind not seeing his incessant little blog posts popping up every week!” Either way. HereContinue reading “So, it’s been a while…”

This is not a dream, and other things I learned this week…

            Madness, I tell you. It’s madness. Here I sit, a Sunday morning, and I find myself facing the real possibility that I might have the first draft of the third and final book in my series complete before the first book is even released into the world. If you asked me a year agoContinue reading “This is not a dream, and other things I learned this week…”

Doubt, or How I Slayed That Dragon, and Killed Some of My Darlings Too…

Well, I did it. I killed my darlings. There are still a few left, quite naturally, but the unwieldly beast that was the first draft of my novel, “The Girl in the Storm”, is now finally starting to come together. When it began it was probably close to 130K words, quite a feat no doubt,Continue reading “Doubt, or How I Slayed That Dragon, and Killed Some of My Darlings Too…”

Carefully Laid Plans, Or How They Don’t Really Matter in the End

Writing, at least in my experience, seems to have evolved along a few rather simple lines. First, I plan. Not extensively, mind you, but just enough so that I know where the story ends as well as a few of the big, crucial moments that mark the road along on the way. After that, IContinue reading “Carefully Laid Plans, Or How They Don’t Really Matter in the End”

The Theology of “A Season of Angels”

When I sat down to spin the tale of Genevieve Reidell, I knew the trappings of the world that she would inhabit. I knew that it would look like our own in nearly every way. The singular event that serves as a backdrop to “The Girl in the Storm”, a school shooting, is an event thatContinue reading “The Theology of “A Season of Angels””
