News and Updates 26 August 2022

It’s been a few months since I last updated. Yeah, I know it’s been a while. Work picked up with the new job, and then with the way this country and the world has been spiraling into a dumpster, my mental health has not been in the best place. Things are starting to get better […]

Update: It’s Been a While

I haven’t been updating as frequently as I had hoped I would. The last week has been one of illness, first for my wife and now for me, and death. I’ve had two members of my family pass away. As a result, I haven’t done near what I wanted to promote my new sweet Sapphic […]

Romance Update: Release Date

It’s been one heck of a week, and it’s only Thursday. With the weekend coming up, I wanted to give what will be the final update on the novel formerly referred to as The Romance Novel Project. The novel is completed, and it will be released on 21 June. As a reminder, this is a […]

Romance Update: Drafted!

I know it’s been a week since I promised an update, but things have been moving fast for me. My new job started on Monday, and it’s leaving me with so much more physical and emotional energy at the end of the day. I haven’t had much to do, as no clients have been assigned […]

Mid-May Update

I haven’t blogged much this week, as the end of the semester approaches. It’s always hectic, as final exams mean a lot of grading that must be done quickly. My grades are in, and this semester is in the books. This will also be my last semester teaching, as I am moving into consulting. This […]

Romance Update: Trope Announcement

After a slow two weeks, progress on The Romance Novel Project has resumed. Progress is steady; although, it’s not as fast as I would like it to be. That said, this post serves to announce the primary romance trope that will underscore and direct the action. I’ve struggled with this defining trope’s identification, because the […]

Romance Update: Disaster!

I know it’s been a few weeks since I offered an update on The Romance Novel Project. Things have been super hectic at work, and I’ve just been exhausted. Have I been working on it? Yes. Did I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I would have the first draft finished by now? […]

Carmilla’s Ghost: Free this Weekend on Kindle!

With the release of It Hungers on May 3rd, I’m offering my novel Carmilla’s Ghost free for anyone with a Kindle this weekend. While all of my books work as standalone reads, those following The Adventures of Sam Hain will recognize this as the book that immediately precedes It Hungers in the series. From the […]

Romance Update: Edit as I Go

Time for the weekend update on The Romance Novel Project. Since I missed my Thursday post due to work-induced exhaustion, I’m going to combine them in this one. The short and sweet of it is that I believe I’ve figured out how to fix my conundrum of fearing that I need to switch the roles […]

Romance Update: AAAARGH!

I do apologize for the melodramatic title, but that sums up my feelings at present. I’ve moved beyond the “Adhesion” beat, and we’re moving through the blossoming of romance that ends with the next pinch point/plot twist. That sounds great. I’m about 60% through the first draft. That also sounds great. So why am I […]
