Weekend Update: Some Progress

For a while now, my current work-in-progress Creed: Solomon’s Fortune has been giving me headaches. I think this was the toughest book I’ve written yet, and it took a long time for the full story to truly reveal itself to me. I took a couple breaks, jumped around in the timeline a bit, and just …

Weekend Update: Free Books and Not-So-Free Dogs

Good morning, everybody! I’m back with another weekly update. Over the last two days I ran another ‘free book’ deal on Amazon Kindle. I do these every couple months, usually get a few downloads out of it. I usually announce this on Twitter but I forgot this time. So I went to check how many …

Back at it Again

As you may recall, back in December I decided to take a brief hiatus from working on my current manuscript, Creed: Solomon’s Fortune. I’d ran into a brick wall of writer’s block and needed some time away from it to get fresh ideas. Well, this weekend I finally managed to dive back in and I’m …

Writer’s Block

The title says it all. Unfortunately right now I think I’m dealing with some major writer’s block for Creed: Solomon’s Fortune. Especially during this holiday season and all that comes along with that, I just can’t find the proper inspiration to continue the story at the moment. I still have the first book in this …

Book Recommendations!

Recently, I received an email from someone running a new book-themed website called Shepherd, and it’s supposed to act as a place where readers can get book recommendations from authors. After doing my usual vetting of unfamiliar folks claiming to want to advertise my books to make sure it’s not some scam, I decided I …

Weekend Update: Holiday Season!

This time of year is my favorite time of year! You get two major holidays within a month of each other, and that means lots of food, time with family, and time away from work. I had a great time with my family this past week. We ate tons of good food (including some not-so-good …

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a short note today to acknowledge the holiday. I hope you all have a day full of relaxation and time spent with family planned! I’ll be visiting my family and having dinner with them. We may also watch some football, as is tradition. The Chicago Bears are playing but their star quarterback Justin Fields …

What’s in a Name?

Ask 100 different authors what the most difficult part of writing is and you’ll probably get 100 different answers. Ask me that question, and I’ll tell you: Picking a damn title. I mean, the title is that first big impression; you can’t afford to blow it! It has to entice the reader, but not be …

Critiquing Yourself

One thing I’ve always struggled with when it comes to writing is critiquing my own work. I’ve noticed that I tend to be an extremely harsh critic of the things I write, and that’s led to a few cases of extended writer’s block. Where I don’t write anything for days or even weeks because I’m …
