Wednesday Writing - A WEEK IN FICTION ... authors, stories, and news

I seem to always have a fidgety moment where I'm always trying to do more than my time allows. In this case, I found that I wanted to provide an outlet for some of the great posts by authors and book lovers that I send out in tweets and follow in blogs. I wanted to collect them and present them in one place, every week. At first, I wasn't sure how I could accomplish this and still have time to do all the other things I'm doing right now. Then, I remembered this little online newspaper website called paper.li. It's a website that allows you to create an online newspaper through aggregation. I simply add the twitter tags, twitter ids, blog rss feeds, or other type of info that gives me a source to draw potential articles from.

I decided that my love of writing was the perfect way to go about this. I have a great network of talented authors and reviewers to draw from. So that is how A WEEK IN FICTION came to be. So, every Monday morning the paper will update, and sometime Monday morning I will do a few updates to the page so I don't get duplicate articles or posts that don't fit into fiction (a few do slip through). I hope that it can become a resource for discovery and writing advice for all those interested. Enjoy!

I wanted to show these to anyone who hasn't seen them yet. This is a great video series with some awesome information for writers. And, of course, it features Patrick Rothfuss, one of my all-time favorite authors (and of course his epic beard). I bow down to the bearded one. . .all right. Let's get this show on the road -- onward, to glory!!!










A Chosen Path in the Editing Stage

A CHOSEN PATH, the second installment of the Colliding Empires Short Story Series, is now officially in the editing phase. I hope to get some feedback from my writing group in the next couple of weeks, and I have been sifting through it on my own to find those nasty little grammatical errors that crop up when the first draft is done. I hope to have it published on Amazon in 2 to 3 weeks. I would like to thank Jeffrey Kosh for his covers. He will be providing me with the covers for all ten of the short stories that I plan to publish for this series. If you are an author and are looking for covers that easily fit into your budget, I would suggest giving his web page a quick look. Thanks everyone!

A Bit of Reevaluation

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I figured I might as well throw out some updates. Anyone who has been following along should probably want to know that the first five short stories of the Colliding Empires have been released into a single file called "Volume 1."

Another thing that is probably the most notable is the fact that I haven't written a post since back in December. I've quite noticeably been derailed in both my blogging and my writing. I haven't done much writing at all. I apologize for that, but it is also one of my cycles that I definitely need to change.

The second, and most recent development, is that I've decided to remove myself from Twitter and delete my Facebook page. I felt that most of what was being put out to the internet on those media channels were shameless self-promotion. That isn't really what I wanted those to become. I don't like the idea of hitting people over the head with that message. And, to be qui…
