On Bergdahl and writing and other things

This is going to be a quick post. I’ll be back this afternoon with a more substantial entry. However, I do have posts up at Victory Girls and Mad Genius Club this morning. At VG, I talk about the delay of Bowe Bergdahl’s sentencing and how he is still grasping at any straw he can find to avoid taking responsibility and paying the consequences for deserting his post. My MGC post is […]

A question, a reminder and a share

I’m late today due to real life interference. Now, finally, I’m able to sit down and try to get to work. But first things first. Today’s post is going to be short — at least by my standards. I have a question or two, a reminder and a share. Then I have to get back to writing. First, the questions. As you guys know, I hate doing the whole promotion bit. I’d […]

Release date

It’s finally here. The official release date for the special edition of Vengeance from Ashes. This edition has approximately 20,000 words of next material. As I’ve noted before, the new material helps expand and round out the plot without changing it. It also help sets the stage better, in my opinion, for the subsequent books in the series. This edition will only be available on Amazon and is enrolled in the Kindle […]

Release Day is Almost Here!

Tomorrow is the official release date for the special edition of e-book version of Vengeance from Ashes. (The print version is already available.) I’m extremely proud of this book, in both its versions. This new version contains new material that has never before been available, approximately 20k words of it. Here’s a quick snippet from early into the book: *** Without a word, he deactivated the security field and stepped inside. The […]

It’s here!

Those of you who follow my weekly posts on Mad Genius Club know I tried something new with the print edition of Vengeance from Ashes (special edition with exclusive material). Instead of going with Createspace or one of the other POD platforms available for indie authors, I tried out the new KDP Print option. I did so with a great deal of trepidation. I don’t like change and I really don’t like […]

A Snippet, a Reminder and More

We’ll start with the reminder first. Vengeance from Ashes (special edition with exclusive content) is currently available for pre-order. Release date is Oct. 17th. This new edition expands on the original edition without changing the overall story arc. Work is progressing on the special edition of Duty from Ashes, as well as Honor from Ashes. They will be released in December and January. Now for the “more”. Actually, it is a request. […]

The print version order page is being promulgated. It still […]

Vengeance from Ashes (expanded edition) available for pre-order

The title pretty much says it all. Vengeance from Ashes (expanded edition) is now available for pre-order. The print version will be available very shortly. The official release date for the e-book is October 17th. This version of the book contains approximately 20k words of additional content. It is, in many ways, the “director’s cut” of the book. I will be removing the original version of the book from Amazon over the […]

I really should know better

I did it. I knew when I wrote Friday’s post, I was tempting my luck. I should know better than to throw down the metaphorical challenge gauntlet where my muse is concerned. But I did it and now Myrtle the Evil Muse is going to make me pay for it. Long story short, when I started considering releasing the expanded edition of Vengeance from Ashes and the other books in the Honor […]

Wow! What just happened?

This week has been odd, to say the least. Real life impacted writer life and writer life impacted social life. Quit laughing. I do have a social life — sort of. Add in a migraine, deadlines that have been blown in the real life sector and, well, you get an idea of what the week has been like. So imagine my surprise when I sat down this morning and realized how much […]
