I finally, FINALLY have something new for you!
This story collection turned into a way bigger project than I expected, but hopefully that means you’ll love it that much more. Thanks for hanging in there with me!

I can always tell it’s been too long since my last update when the wordpress dashboard has changed entirely since I last logged on. Ooof. I barely know how to use this contraption anymore.
Anyway, here’s an update on why it’s taking me SO FREAKING LONG to get this book done:
I sort of forgot to do an update for a while. Like…a long while. Sorry about that. I’m going to chalk that up to 2020 and promise to do better. Thanks for hanging in there with me!
This one took me a little longer to film because I got pretty caught up in the writing part of the job. But better late than never!
The big news is that I have a shop now, where you can order signed copies of the first three books. I’m only shipping to the continental U.S. by default (though if you’re international, feel free to hit me up and we’ll work something out.)
Thanks for sticking around, and I hope you have a happy Halloween!
Oh boy, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything. Sorry about that. So I figured I should do something big to get back into the game. But rather than force you to sit down and read an extended blog post about all my updates, I’m trying something new.
This is the first of what will hopefully be many videos from me. And if everyone likes it, I’ll probably keep it as my primary form of communication. This one is a bit long to cover introductions and five months worth of chaos…but normally I’ll keep them shorter. Thanks for sticking around, and let me know what you think!
Blight Marked (Ethereal Earth #3) is out today in ALL formats! Including audio!
Initially I didn’t think everything would make it out on the same day, but somebody at Audible must love me. And I love them right back.
Now that I have a bit of a break, I’m going to try posting more regularly to talk about the process and maybe do some videos of the recording and editing. And I’ll definitely be working on getting some book plates done for anyone with physical copies who wants my messy signature. But for now, thanks for sticking with this series. I’m genuinely honored to be allowed to entertain/distract/delight you, and I’m just so glad to be here.
That title isn’t a typo. It’s clever…trust me.
This post is about how book 3 is coming along (spoiler: great!) and also some ideas I’ve been mulling to keep you folks up to date in fun and useful ways. A very cool lady at Facebook told me I should be updating my blog more often to build better communication with you awesome people, and…yeah, she’s totally right. I live so much in my own head that sometimes I forget to actually interact with reality. So here I am! In reality! …Virtually.
First, book 3 is so much fun right now. I wish I could tell you more but I don’t want to spoil any of the coolness. I will say that it’s shaping up to be a bit of a marriage between the styles of Hero Forged and Fate Lashed, and I really like it so far. The story is going exactly where I’d hoped, while also doing things I honestly never expected along the way. The whole thing goes in for various rounds of editing starting in October, so I’m still shooting for this Winter to release it in all formats. But some of the voices, you guys…I’m so excited to start recording this thing!
I’ll also say that I still have that short story coming soon. It went slightly over my goal of 5,000 words, (11,000…oops) and the events happen right near the end of Fate Lashed. James is the main man in this one, and I’m hoping to get some time to record it when elementary school starts back up in a week and my house gets quiet enough for it again. 🙂 There’s also another short(er) story on the way, but that’ll get finished and polished when book 3 goes in for edits. If you’re signed up for my newsletter or you clicked on the button to follow this blog you’ll get those stories, including audio, for free.
And now the rapport part. See? It came around.
I’m trying to figure out the best way to keep everyone informed without bugging people too much…and while still maintaining a decent flow of information for folks who like that sort of thing. So I’m considering options like recording audio versions and even possibly doing videos. Though for the latter, I suppose I’ll have to shave and be presentable and not be constantly eating pie with my bare hands. I guess.
Is there anyone on earth that actually wants to see a video from me or hear me ramble without a script? Drop a comment below if you have any opinions (or good pie recipes) and I’ll try to work up a couple trial runs for the different formats in the next few weeks. And, as always, thanks for being cool!
