Update—”Hidden Tribe”

“Hidden Tribe”, the sasquatch novel that Desirée Lee and I are working on, is still underway. Some edits and rewriting are being done. The cover design is also underway. We expect to get a preview of it from the cover artist very soon. Please keep watching this blog/website for updates on this project.

Marijuana Again

Cannabis_02

Marijuana is a topic I’ve posted about a couple of time before on this site/blog. See those posts here and here, respectively. Recently, this article was brought to my attention. Reading it, I still can’t help but wonder about the medical benefits of marijuana, and just how useful it might be personally given my almost daily headaches. More and more, it’s gaining steam for such use. Can anyone chime in on this, and add to my slowly-growing knowledge base on this subject?

The Book Nymph (2261 South 6th St #4,Klamath Falls, Oregon) now has autograph paperback copies of “Within These Stone Walls” by my very talented wife Desirée Lee, and “Quintana Roo, Yucatan” by me in stock. If you’re in the area, please drop by, and check out the store. It’s a great place, owned and run by a really cool woman.

Awfully Close!

Desirée Lee recently found this article and brought it to my attention. This is very close to what I wrote in my award-winning, bestselling novel “Quintana Roo, Yucatan“. And that book was written a couple of years before the date on the article! What do you all think?

What Are You Reading?

Book_Stack

As an avid reader, and as a bestselling, award-winning author, I’m always curious about what other people are reading. At the moment I’m reading one book, and re-reading another. I’m reading “Dracula: The Un-Dead” by Dacre Stoker. I’m also re-reading “The Witch’s Coin: Prosperity and Money Magick” by Christopher Penczak.

What are all of you reading right now?

Tea Time

Tea

Those of us living in modern American society are always pushed to rush, rush,rush and work, work, work. It’s a rat race day in, and day out, it seems. I vote that we adopt the British tradition of tea time. I say we start taking some time out each afternoon for a nice hot cup of tea, a light snack, and simply relax. Socialize. Read a bit. Whatever. Doing so ought to be a great stress reliever. That would probably go a long way toward alleviating a lot of health issues that plague us these days.

Who’s with me on this? Who else thinks we should start doing tea time in America?

Interviews?

It’s been a while since I’ve done any sort of interview, or Q/A. I’m very open to doing more. It doesn’t matter if it would be for a website, blog, or printed publication. I’m game for them all. Desirée Lee and I are wrapping up our new coauthored book “Hidden Tribe“. That’s the sasquatch novel we’ve been working so hard on for the past several months. I’d like very much to expand the spreading word of that book before its release. Anyone care to assist with that by way of conducting an interview? If so, please get in touch with me via the “Contact” page of my website.

Thank You, Everyone

Thank_You

I wanted to devote today’s post to simply thanking all of you – my readers, and fans – for joining me on the journey that my love of writing and literature has taken me on. A lot has happened since I had my first short story published back in August of 2002. I’ve been incredibly lucky. I consider myself even luckier to have all of you at my side through these experiences. It’s been an incredible thirteen years! And it wouldn’t have happened without the support from all of you. I can’t even imagine where the next thirteen will take us. But I look forward to finding out.

Again, thank you all.

Notes

Notes

Not too long ago, I mentioned here that I’ve been mulling over ideas for a new project. Over the past few days, things have really begun to crystallize in my mind on a lot of details for that book. I’ve begun making some notes for it. I even have a title in mind for it! As I’ve said here before, I don’t like to start work on a project without having a title for it. Even if that title changes later on, I like to something in mind to think of a project by. I’m happy to have a title for this one already, and not to be going through a repeat of the long title choosing process that Desirée Lee and I went through on “Hidden Tribe“!

When will I truly begin work on this book? At this point, I have no idea. Sorry. I’m very excited about it. But Desirée and I are still wrapping up “Hidden Tribe”. After that, we’ll be embarking on a new feature-length screenplay. If,that it, things do come together for that as planned and expected. That film will be in collaboration with the very talented musician Mr. Tom Smith. The script will be based on one of Mr. Smith’s songs. Mr. Smith is also interested in scoring the soundtrack for the project. Please keep watching this blog/website for more information on that project if/when it develops.

After that screenplay, I’d very much like to kick off the “Warder” and/or “Ravenesque” series of books or novellas. We still aren’t 100% sure which route we want to take on those. And, of course, we need to keep up with “MoonWraith“, and duties involving our publishing company, Umbral Press. And there are other books I have in the works, plus other things Desirée and I are coauthoring. Most importantly of all, we’re also parents to a wonderful 21-month-old daughter.

So, this new book idea is on the back burner for now. I’ve no idea when I’ll truly begin work on it. But, in way, that’s a good thing. As I continue thinking about it, new ideas come to me. Hopefully this will result in a richer, better read for you – my fans. As I haven’t really even started this book yet, I don’t want to say too much about it. But it will be fantasy – the genre so many of you have joined me on my journey for. Yet it’ll be a type of book I’ve never written before. The characters will be anthropomorphic animals. Yet the book will be for an adult audience. What I have in planned is something I look forward to writing for you, and fully expect to enjoy creating. I hope all of you will be as excited about reading it as I am about writing it.
