Getting Back On Track

As many of you may have noticed, there haven't been many posts lately. No excuses here. Life throws us curveballs, and we just have to wait on the pitch a little longer. A little news, I'm putting The Colliding Empires short story series on hold for a bit. Yes, I've been stuck on the current story in the series, but the main reason is because I'm going to be focusing on a novel that is in the brainstorming/planning phase. I want to try and focus on that for the time being. Also, I've sent Shindarin Rising out to one more small press, and I'm currently waiting to hear back. If I get the rejection this time, I'm officially going to put it in the Shelved Novels folder and concentrate on my current works. The story has a lot of problems. I know this, and since it was my first ever completed novel, I'm really not surprised. I've spent so much time with that story that, at times, I'm not sure how much I want to work with it. I believe the premise of the story is a great idea. I'm just not sure how effective I delivered it. If it is rejected, I'll let it simmer on the sidelines and try and come back and rewrite it fresh.

That's the update for now. Thanks for reading!

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…
