My Pages! Beginnings...or Chapter One.

The blog is evolving. As I learn, and there is so much to learn,  my attempt is to peak interest in my storytelling. Up until now I just put links here and there, but now I have seperate Pages (above) to show things like Maps and Reviews.

Beginnings is Chapter One in one piece.  The Createspace sample was ugly and hard to read. On the blog it looks kinda nice.  Passage of the Acolyte, I will admit, is a patient read; but not obnoxiously long-winded or boring. You be the judge. Once you find yourself settled, the ride may be a pleasant one.  Check it out and see for yourself. (go it)

Hi James! I am blog hopping today and I am so happy to find your site! I don't have time to read Chapter 1 right now - I am on my way out the door to meet with my critique partners this morning - but I will definitely be back! Your review was wonderful and your book sounds right up my alley. If you find a minute, I hope you will come and visit my site, as well. I am looking forward to getting to know you better!

And then there were five

In an attempt at the world's worst salesmanship, I've made nary an attempt to sell the Lords of Winterfell, let alone market my fourth installment to the Outcast Alliance series. It's what I do (or don't do -- depending on your perspective). In case you think I've slacked, you're wrong...ok, you are once again right, but I have written some stuff. Drum roll,  please...

Book Five is at 11k, which only sounds impressive to non-writers. But it's good enough to put me a couple chapters in; I think I'm somewhere into three and four. My wonderful writing software (Scrivener) makes it easier to sort and script simultaneous chapters at once. Will I write faster now? Probably not. But it's a goal.

Now the big question: do I have a title? Not at all. Not even a working one. I have a loose outline to follow and a decent idea where this one ends, and yes, then book six begins. My word, six? How many more can we take? Seven. The loose answer is seven books inclu…

About time

What does the average author do after completing and publishing a book? Well, sit on it for two months, of course. Okay, that's not the norm, but that's exactly what happened here. No parties, no banners, or parades...nothing.

Well, what did I do? If you read my previous posts you will understand I am a man of my word. Once the Lords of Wintertide got published I was going to redo some things with the first three books -- slight cover changes, minor editing, and formatting nuances. Now they're all perfect! Or, as perfect as they are going to be in this lifetime.

So all four books of the Outcast Alliance Series are out and polished, ready for your scrutiny in paperback or Kindle. I'll even pop the Amazon Author Page link right here, and we're off and running (with book five somewhere down the line)...Enjoy!

What's in a name?

A much-awaited update:

The timeline for getting book four done before the new year is on track. One edit is finished. The second edit is also complete thanks to some very helpful writing software (Grammarly, if you're curious). Now comes the final edit, and I am currently several chapters in....give or take a few pages. Needless to say, I am happy how everything is coming along; and more importantly, how the story is progressing.

Now a bigger announcement: I've changed the name. I have my reasons, but I wanted something a bit more accessible and curious. Drum roll please -- The Lords of Wintertide. So now the fourth installment of the Outcast Alliance series is coming close to fruition. I even have the cover ready to go so it will be an easy transition.

Ok, so now I have some writing software to push me along -- the previously noted Grammarly and organizer extraordinaire, Scrivener. These will certainly help me in the future. But what about the past? I have decided on somethi…
