AAAAAND . . . Done.

Finished up THE DOOM OF ODIN in the wee hours of 30 January 2023. Two years of work; two false starts. A pandemic where I was "essential" . . . and 117K words later, a book is born. I'm at the stage where I can't tell if it's a work of genius or a steaming... Continue Reading →

Christmas Eve Update

"Are you done yet?" I am not. BUT, I've written approximately 30,000 words since Nov. 29. I've finally struck upon a system of writing/composing that works for me (for now).

So, the Tales for Sale drive has gone very well, thus far. Well enough that I'm re-thinking some of my options for future stories -- like a series of novellas wrapping up the story-lines from The Lion of Cairo. As of 2:08 PM CST, ALL ORDERS HAVE BEEN DELIVERED. I've sent them off to the... Continue Reading →
