Guess who’s back in the US?!?!
In case you haven’t seen the haiku I’ve been posting this week (with some very obvious riddles), the wife and I were in England for a wedding and some good ole R+R in London.
I managed to get some sweet pics of what I assume is Greenland on our flight from Reykjavik to Baltimore. I’ve seen plenty of documentary footage of the arctic, but flying directly over it with such a clear view of the terrain felt like I’d been transported to another world. Continue reading Friday Publishing-Day: Notes over Greenland
This has been a pretty good week. I had started to review my book designer’s sample manuscript over the weekend, but didn’t get too far. Continue reading Friday Publishing-Day: The Deep Breath
This has certainly been an interesting week, not least because I drove halfway across the country.
With my manuscript for WoEM in the hands of my book designer, I have been able to focus on other pieces of this larger puzzle. Continue reading Friday Publishing-Day: Coming Together
Welp, I definitely forgot today was Friday, so I will be brief.
This week has felt very full, but I think I’ve accomplished very little publishing-wise. Stress at work is the main cause of that.
Fortunately, my book design is under way. Continue reading Friday Publishing-Day: Brief Update
I finally did it. I completed my revisions of The Warden of Everfeld: Memento and sent it off to my book designer for formatting.
I feel… anxious? I don’t know. I’m glad to have it done, and on deadline, but suddenly the reality of publishing this thing is washing over me.

My weeks have really been flying by, and I still can’t figure out why. The stress at work has eased off a bit, so that’s good. Reading through my manuscript has gone more slowly than I wanted, but I’ve made solid progress.
Now, I have just over a week before my book designer starts his work…! Continue reading Friday Publishing-Day: Burning Daylight
Welcome to a new edition of Friday… Day! As you might have heard earlier this week, I’m in need of a change-up. This series will officially focus on my publishing efforts, even though that’s essentially what I’ve been trying to do for weeks.
On to the updates! Continue reading Friday Publish-Day: A New Deadline
I realized this week that I don’t have a nicely illustrated map of my fantasy world.
For anyone familiar with fantasy novels, having a beautiful map for the reader to reference as they journey through this fictional world is, like, where 60% of the enjoyment of fantasy stories comes from. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: I Need A Map!
As I’ve already written several times, revision for my third manuscript of WoEM have gone rather smoothly. I’ve had to rewrite a couple of sections, or rethink my character arcs, but overall, I feel really good about where this story is in this more polished iteration.
Am I crazy? Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Am I Confident or Just Naive?
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I was recently interviewed for a podcast!
J. David Core, author of several mystery novels, was kind enough to sit down with me on his weekly “Thrills & Mystery” podcast. And the podcast is out!
