5 Days

Since sometime around mid-August of this year I’ve made it a point to set time aside for a blog post on this site each and every day. So, from sometime around mid-August, up to December 19th, every single day a new post has gone up here. That’s a lot of posts! Unfortunately, that’s also a lot of time devoted to the writing of those posts.

As you all know, I have a lot of proverbial irons in the fire. I’m also the father of a healthy, active 17-month-old daughter. Chasing a hyper toddler around is a full-time job in and of itself, never mind work duties! So, rather than continue trying to put up a new blog post here every single day, each and every day, I’m cutting back. Weekends? Family time! I’ll continue trying to get new posts on this blog for you all Monday – Friday each week, But Saturdays and Sundays are going to be postless. For the foreseeable future, anyway. I put this into effect this past weekend, which is why the past two days were the first days in months not to see new posts go up here.

Thank you all for understanding!

Wrapped

The first draft of “Hero Life” is wrapped up. I’ve turned it over to my co-writer on this project. He’s the one who will be handling the sale of the script. Unless or until rewrites are requested by a producer for this project, my part in this is all wrapped up.

Now, I’m working on artwork for Issue #4 of “Confluence”. The script was written and edited while I was still finishing up my part of “Hero Life”. The first stage of art for the next issue of “Confluence” is well underway. Soon as Issue #4 of “Confluence” is done, and ready to go to print, I’ll switch over to get Issue #7 of “MoonWraith” done. It isn’t needed for a while, but after that it’ll be back to work on the sasquatch novel that Desirée Lee and i are working on. If Issue #7 of “MoonWraith” isn’t done first, I’ll have to break from the sasquatch novel to get that done. I’d rather get the “MoonWraith” issue out of the way first, and then just concentrate on the new book. If that project has been published by summer, we have a couple of unique promo opportunities for it.

So, that’s where things are just now. As I said in a recent post, thank you all for your patience while waiting on me to get away from comics and screenplays to get back to books. It’s been a while, but I should be back to a novel soon.

Video Trailer—”Confluence”

For the past three days I’ve been posting about “Confluence“, which is the new science fiction, bimonthly, on-going comic book series created, written, lettered, and generally produced by Desirée Lee and myself. Today’s post is the last one of those for a little while. Today, I’d like to share the video book trailer for “Confluence” will all of you. This book trailer video was created, as have our several most recent ones, by My Book Trailers.

Such trailers have become a standard marketing device these days. A lot of people expect every project, even if it’s a short story, to have such a trailer created for it. They’re also easily shared on-line. So, please, do Desirée and a I a favor. Please share the “Confluence” trailer around for us. Show it to your family and friends. Post it on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, or whichever social networking sites you use. The more exposure the trailer gets, the better for “Confluence”.

Issue #3—”Confluence”

Cover

“Confluence” is a new ongoing, bimonthly science fiction comic book series. My wife, whom you all know as the extraordinarily talented, award-winning, bestselling paranormal author Desirée Lee, and myself are behind the project. We created it. We write it. We use three separate graphics software programs to create the artwork. We letter the issues. It’s a lot of work. That’s one reason “Confluence” is only being released on a bimonthly basis.

“Confluence” as a series:

“Confluence” is a science fiction/fantasy mash-up. It focuses on Rue Preston, her best friend Nadine Larson, and the “town pest” Marvin Chambers after the trio is pulled through a dimensional rift to another world. The place where they find themselves is a nexus point where an unknown number of realities join. As such, the world where they have found themselves is a place where anything can potentially happen.

Issue #3

New friends are made, a whole new chain of events are set into motion as a result of the Maw attacks in the previous issue.

Issue #2

Saying goodbye to the friends made in the previous issue, Rue, Nadine, and Marvin set out on their own, hoping to find a way out of the nexus world. But, rather than discover a way back to Earth, they find more trouble. And they won’t escape unscathed!

“Winter’s Rite”

Winters Rite Cover_02

Keeping with my recent string of posts regarding my older novels, this post will wrap up that thread. I’ve been working backward from my most recent release toward my first book. And here it is. My first novel was “Winter’s Rite“. Originally, I had started work on this book as the final assignment of a course in children’s literature that I took. “Winter’s Rite” was written for Teens and Young Adults. However, most of the fans who have taken the time to write to me about it have been adults.

Also, several fans who have written regarding “Winter’s Rite” have claimed to have discovered “hidden messages” within the text. If there are any, they’re unintentional. But, apparently, in some places the first letter of several paragraphs string together to form coherent messages. I’ve not taken the time to go back over the book and see what phrases turn up where like that. Anyone who has found things like this in “Winter’s Rite”, please let me know. No one has actually said what they’ve found; only that they’ve found “hidden messages”.

“Winter’s Rite”

In a world where humans do not exist, dark magick has been used to bring an early winter down upon the land. It falls to a young Water Nix named Avari to seek out the source of this magick and put a stop to it. As his journey progresses, he encounters a myriad of other beings, some friends, some not…
