I’m sometimes asked about my willingness to put my name and projects in front of mega-celebrities by way of their official websites’ contact forms, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc. A lot of people seem to think this is a foolish thing for me to do and appear to take great pleasure in letting me know that.

Do I REALLY expect a reply from these A-list celebrities?

Not so much, no.

So why do I do it so often?

The answer is simple. Even if nothing at all comes from my having put my name and a project in front of a huge celebrity director, producer, actor, actress, etc., that individual has still – assuming they saw my message or social networking post – been made aware of my name. They’ve heard of me. And, on the off chance that one of them does reply – and it has happened – I’m given the chance to get to know them a bit better and let them get to know me and my work a bit better.

This business is, in large part, all about networking. It’s who you know and what contacts in the industry you and they have. A casual meeting or a couple of exchanged social networking messages today could open the door for something profitable down the road. People remember. There’s no telling when someone with major contacts and/or money to fund a project, and who has heard of me, might run across my name or work in the future and truly take note.

So, for those of you who want to laugh and snigger because of my willingness to put my work and name in front of A-list celebrities, continue doing so if you like. For my part, I will continue trying to open those doors and see where it gets me. All it takes is making a professional connection with the right person just one time to escalate a career to a whole new level.


Please help with the “MoonWraith” TV pilot

Please help me to get the “MoonWraith” TV pilot script entered into film festivals. Showing this script off at such festivals will be a huge step forward in finding a producer/distributor for this project.

Lately, I’ve been quiet but things haven’t BEEN quiet; I’ve been very busy…


This coming Saturday, May 5, 2012, I’ll be at Yancy Street Comics (located inside Gulf View Square Mall in Port Richey, FL.) for the 2012 Free Comic Book Day event. I’ll be selling work and signing autographs, as well as debuting a short promo of Issue #1 of the on-going comic book series “Wendy Markland: Chronicles Nocturnum”. That series is based on my Wendy Markland novels and features artwork by James Smith.

I’m also still working on my newest novel, “Quintana Roo, Yucatan” and a new novella that I plan to use for promotional purposes.

Today, I’ve been asked by an actress/model/TV host/director/producer for the pilot script of “MoonWraith”. “MoonWraith” is a 1-hour character-driven horror/action/adventure TV series. I have 42 people who want to be part of the project as cast or crew. I’m only lacking a producer/distributor. And one is reading the script as of today… Wish me luck, please. If she’s interested, we could see some movement on “MoonWraith” in the near future.


Amidst all of this, I’m getting ready to move to California. I’ll be relocating in June. I’m moving to be with my girlfriend, paranormal romance author Desirée Lee. Please check out Desirée’s website:

All in all, it’s very busy here and looking to get more so quickly. Please “Like” my Facebook fan page to keep up with the latest; I’m far better about posting a quick update there than I am at keeping up with other sites. My fan page URL is:

My Book – Fun Facts Round #2

“Winter’s Rite” – – was first planned with a different title and to be set in the modern day Gulf ofMexico, pitting merfolk against humans.

“Well Wishes” – – was originally my second self-published novel.

“Gauntlet” – – was inspired by a scene from the film “Batman Forever”.

“Predators or Prey?” – – was the first Wendy Markland novel and not originally meant as Book 1 of a series.

“Necromancer” – – was the second Wendy Markland novel.

“Vindicated” –– was challenging due to my need to create vampires different from those seen in the series’ first book.

The bonus story “Remnants”, included in the print edition of “Predators or Prey?” – – is Wendy Markland’s first encounter with a ghost.

The “Shadow Castes” trilogy, which begins with “Shadow Castes: Book 1 – Aspects” – – began as ideas for two separate books.

“Quintana Roo,Yucatan” – Forthcoming – is one of my rare non-paranormal projects.

Originally, “Vindicated” – – was planned as the final Wendy Markland story.
