Hero Forged releases 6/2/18!

Book

This is just a quick update to let you know that Hero Forged will be released on Amazon on June 2nd, 2018! That’s the e-book and print copy, which will be priced at $3.99 and $14.99 respectively. I make around the same amount either way, so order your preferred format. Paper and ink are expensive, you guys.

Looking back, I probably should have skipped the gilded edges and diamond encrusted cover.

As for the audiobook, that should be coming soon too. It’s about 70% recorded and 20% edited, and I anticipate it being finished a week or so later than the books. So you don’t have too much longer to wait if you’re really looking forward to hearing me curse and do about a thousand different voices.

Publish(ish)

Welcome back!

I’m sorry it’s been so long, but I finally have something to write another post about. A few things, actually. Quite a bit has happened since my last batch of words here, so I’m going to deliver it all in three distinct acts. That way you can experience it with the same excitement and foreboding that I did as it unfolded.

I see that you can barely handle the compulsory anticipation.

Crime and Publishment

“Writing and publishing a book can’t be that tough. I can definitely do it.”

“Holy crap…”

Writing a book really isn’t that hard. I mean, writing a good book is pretty challenging, but really anybody can knock out a coherent story if they want to. It turns out that’s the easy part. The hard thing is getting anyone to actually care that you did it.

At first I thought the book I wrote, A Hero Forged, was in fairly decent shape. I knew it needed the touch of a skilled editor, but otherwise I was ready to send it out the door. The story is done. Time for the sequel. Then I started researching all the rest of the steps involved in the process, and I got super sad. It turns out that publishing a book is hard freaking work.

Welcome!

This site is brand spanking new. I just pulled off the plastic this morning, in fact, and it still has that fresh-from-the-keyboard smell. So if you happened across this page by a missed turn or something, please bear with me as I populate this world. Eventually it will be a bustling hub of activity related to my thriving writing career and probable yacht-racing exploits, (it could happen…) but for now please check out the Books section to see if you have any interest in buying my stuff when it gets released. Or head over to About Me to answer that question that’s been burning up your brain since way back at the start of this paragraph.
