Chronicles of a Rock Troll: A Path of Justice

I just finished my first draft of CHRONICLES OF A ROCK TROLL:  A PATH OF JUSTICE, the next installment in Car'Al's journey. I still need to go through and edit, get some critiques from my writing group, and get the cover art all lined up. There's still some time to go before it gets published to Amazon, but the story is done. Also, in the future for these posts. I'll be referring to CHRONICLES OF A ROCK TROLL as CRT: etc, etc. It'll be shorter than having to type the whole thing out each time.

I'm also working on outlines for the sequel to SHINDARIN RISING. I don't have an official title for it just yet, but I'm tentatively using THE FLAME AND THE FORGE. I think that will change though. I should have most of the beta readers response back by November 3rd. Once I have those, I can get started on my final round of edits before I begin my editor search. I still have some work and additional steps to move forward on before it is ready to hit the market. Th…

Book Reviews and Ratings

I'm currently on the hunt for some reviews and ratings. If you use Shelfari or Goodreads, I'd appreciate it if you could give me a star rating or review on one of my short stories. If you don't have a copy yet, you can buy my Kindle Short Stories from Amazon. Go to my amazon author page to get your copies now! The more reviews I get, the more likely someone is to see my work. The more someone sees my work, the more likely they are to buy it. The more they buy, the more time I can devote to writing by becoming a full time writer! Help an author out today! Thanks everyone!!!

Amazon Independent Publishing Experiment

My first short story, Chronicles of a Rock Troll:  New Beginning, is currently under review at Amazon. I've made the decision that I'm going to try and self publish these short stories. My first thought is to price these shorter works at 99 cents. If I do collections or publish longer works I will price them higher. If they accept it, the story will should be available in 12 hours or so. I'll be giving more updates as they become available. Thanks for the support!

P.S. I'd also like to thank Kayla Curry for doing the artwork for the cover of New Beginning. She is also currently working on the cover art for Tears of Blood, a short story that I just recently finished set in a steampunk world.

What if ... Writing Prompt

This may be a regular posting method, it may not, but I have too many ideas floating around in my head as it is. So, I am throwing this idea out there. I only ask one thing, if someone uses this idea for a story or novel, please come back and leave a comment saying so. I'd like to know that you are doing the story and that the idea is being put to good use. Today's "what if..." idea is ... What if the first Europeans had landed in the Americas and had found that the Native Americans were more advanced technologically than they were?

What do you think would have happened? Do you think that the Europeans would have still been aggressive? Do you think that the Native Americans after seeing the Europeans would have decided to expand to Europe and take their land, much like what happened to them when Europeans landed and the western expansion during "Manifest Destiny"? Let me know what you think by leaving comments. If you do decide to run with the idea and wri…
