Haven't been here in a while. Never mind why--chalk it up to native incompetence.

At any rate, I'm back with CUTV News, doing interviews. the video interview will be out soon, and the radio interviews run from January 4 - March 1. I love these interviews. They are so much fun, and the hosts are great. Next one is January 12. If you miss it, don't worry--the shows will be archived on this website for your listening enjoyment.

In other news, Invasion won an award. Didn't take the gold, but I'm happy with the silver. So I'm now not just an award-winning author, but a multi-award winning author. This means of all the competitions I've entered, I've won an award. Let's hope my streak holds with the others I'm entering soon.

Gotta run!

Well! I see by the date it's been a while since I've posted here. In my defense, a LOT has been going on this past month.

First, The Underground: Second Edition placed as a finalist in the Readers' Favorite Book Award Contest. I'm pretty chuffed about that. Totally unexpected. That is most likely because I'd forgotten I'd entered.

The Underground's sequel, Invasion, will be released soon. Two books in one year! Sorta, anyway. I'll admit the sequel was half finished when I released the Underground. So look for it at the beginning of October, or maybe even sooner, if all goes well.

Finally, I'm taking a break from writing. Just for a while. I've been going great guns for several years now, and I need a rest. I'd rather rest from my day job, but writing doesn't pay the bills, at least not yet. So I'm thinking maybe six months, though I'll probably last half that. Can't keep my mitts off the computer, you know. But I have lots more stories to tell, and they will get told.

Here's a concept cover for Invasion. This isn't the final, but it's going to look pretty much like this.

Have a series of radio interviews and a video interview coming up again, this time for my new book, "Invasion." After a spellcasting gone terribly wrong, three paranormals divided by love and jealousy discover themselves inextricably bound through their auras. Not only must they find a way to unbind themselves, they must also help an interstellar assassin stave off a potential alien invasion of Earth before it's too late--for them and the planet.

Yes, I know--not a very good elevator pitch. But then, I was never good at making them. It'll just have to do. At any rate, there will be a short story appended to it, "Forever Bound." Suffice it to say that a powerful vampire regent contemplates driving a stake through his heart. The purpose of the short is to end our quartet's adventures on Earth. I figured after a threatened alien invasion, what could possibly be next? So they take off in the alien's battleship and find new adventures.

In other news, The Moreva of Astoreth has a new look. I liked the old cover just fine, but reviewers and judges didn't. One reviewer actually took a star off my review because of it. So instead of five stars, I only got four. Rather aggravating, since the quality of the cover doesn't necessarily have anything to do with what's between them. Yet people do judge books by their covers, so I had to change it. Look for it on the front page soon.

So that's all for now. See ya in the funny papers!

So the new novel, The Underground: Invasion, is being edited. I also wrote a short story as a little bonus to go in at the end of the book. It's about our heroes, 1,000 years into the future. I'm also having a new cover made for The Moreva of Astoreth. When people started saying how much they hated it, I just blew them off. But when I started getting demerits from reviewers and such, well, that's enough to make you sit up an listen. I was turned on to an excellent illustrator, who, so far, has given me some amazing work.

While I wait, it's an excellent time to start the new novel. Problem is, I don't know which one...

The edits for The Underground: Invasion are nearly complete. The self-edits, that is.

I've made at least five rounds, and I always find something that could have been said better, or something like that. The problem is that I'm a perfectionist. I just can't seem to keep my mitts off the manuscript. I'm not rewriting big chunks, or anything like that--it's the little things. I just keep messing with it.

Hmm...maybe I should go write a short story. Distract myself.
