Final Draft

Tonight I will be finishing the final draft of “Defiant”, so all that remains is finalizing the book cover. I expect to have that figured out by next week 🙂

It’s refreshing that this book has gone so smoothly. Thanks for your patience everybody. My next project before diving into the fourth book involves putting my ‘backlist’ up for sale as well. That’s a fancy way of saying I’m pulling up some previous novels I’ve left unfinished, dusting off the covers, and putting them up for sale as well. I will be putting these stories up under a different pen name (they are from various genres) but I’ll make sure to mention them here.

I still plan to get the fourth book in Kaltor’s story out by this summer, so  I’m still working on this series as well 🙂

I will see you guys next week (hopefully with “Defiant” up and running). Take care guys.


On Target

Hey Everyone,

“Defiant” is on target for the first week of April. Things slowed down here at the start of the week, due to my dad’s hospitalization. His brain is producing too much CSF (cerebral spinal fluid), so they put in a valve to off-set the growing pressure. Granted, they had to put it next to his brain, so it definitely counts as a major surgery. One of the perks of writing full-time is when things get tight for the family, your work schedule is very flexible. I’m glad I was able to be there for my family when they needed me.

Bottom line, he is recovering well and “Defiant” is still on target. I’ll be in touch with another update next week. Take care guys 🙂


Hey Guys,

Here’s the latest about what’s going on with “Assassin’s Rising”.

I just sent the rough draft of book #3, “Defiant” to my editor. My cover artist is also working on the e-cover as well, which hopefully will be ready to go by this month’s end 🙂 Things at home have been unusually quiet lately so I’ve had alot of time to put into this next book. I am surprised its come along so quickly this time!

Also, there is a new Giveaway up for electronic copies of “Deluge” on The Bibliophilic Book Blog, which you can check out here.

Progress Report: I just finished the second draft of the third book in the “Assassin’s Rising” Series, called “Defiant”. I’ll be sending it to my editor this weekend and am drawing up initial plans to get the book cover done as well. This next installment should be in place by mid-april, if not sooner 🙂
