Hello Everyone,

It’s been a while since I last posted, and I apologize for that. Between working full-time and squeezing in writing when and where I can, I just can’t seem to be able keep up with the website, Facebook, and Twitter. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day, week, or month where I can get everything I want and need to do done in a timely manner. Despite my best efforts, it seems like months routinely go by and I haven’t shared anything new with all of you. Anybody know of any wealthy benefactors willing to support a struggling writer? Yeah, me either, oh well… guess I’ll just have to muddle through it! LOL

It’s good to see that this winter is finally coming to a close! At last count, Boston has had 104.1 inches of snow. We’re just a few inches away of breaking the all-time record of 107.6 inches (recorded during the winter of 1995 -96)! I live a little north of Boston, and at last count we had had 111 inches, and I know for a fact that many communities around Massachusetts have seen quite a bit more that that! It’s going to be really good to see all of these snow banks gone, and have sidewalks again! You know it’s been a rough winter when you go outside, it’s 36 degrees, and you think: “Wow, it’s really nice out today!” Amazing how our perception can change, isn’t it?

So, on to the business of Anawyn. Here’s the latest news: I was hoping to have Huntington (Book two) out to editing by now, but some unforeseen circumstances (and expenses) came up and I was forced to put off the editing. Unfortunately, the next available appointment is not until July, which means that the book will not be available until sometime in August. A very unfortunate setback, as I was hoping to be getting book three ready by then. What’s that saying about life giving you lemons?
Some good news: as of March 14, Anawyn had been downloaded 168 times, and of those downloads, 24 people enjoyed it enough to purchase full copies. I give a very heart-felt, and humble ‘Thank You’ to all of you for the support. Hopefully some more of those sample downloads will translate into sales. And as always, I would love to hear from any and all of you. Feel free to say ‘Hi’ on Facebook, Twitter, or the website. I always make it a point to respond to anyone who leaves me a comment.
The editing setback; however, has given me some time to work on my urban fantasy novel, which has tentatively been titled ‘Freemont’. It’s been a while since I last worked on it, and it’s been nice to spend some time in another of my ‘worlds’. This one is about a US Marshal who hunts were-creatures. It’s far too early for me to even begin to guess at when it will be finished or available. The Anawyn novels continue to be my first priorities publishing-wise, and take up the greatest amount of my free time. I’m also going to focus some time on addressing the editing and typos I’ve found in Anawyn since making it available. At some point in the near future I’m hoping to have a new revision uploaded and available. I’m very disappointed in all of the mistakes I found, and thank all of you readers for powering through them. I promise, all of my next releases will not suffer in the same way, I have learned my (embarrassing) lesson on self-editing!

Thank you for the support, and think SPRING!

I hope that all of you have a happy and healthy March.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hello Everyone,

I hope that all of you who celebrated Thanksgiving in the United States had a happy and safe celebration with you family and friends. I had a great time with my family, and ate way too much – I needed to break out the antacids later that night.

New England received some snow just in time for the holiday, which caused quite a few power outages throughout the area. I hope that all of you who were “enjoying” that darkness were finally able to get your power back in time cook your dinner and sit down to enjoy the company of your friends and relatives. You have to love Mother Nature, she really knows how to mess up our carefully scheduled plans!

On the writing side of news: It’s official, I’ve hired an editor go through Huntington (Book two of Anawyn). She will be able to start working on it in February. That likely means that it will be ready for release sometime in late March. Guess I’ll have to start looking at getting some cover art ready…

As I look at Anawyn, I have found a few grammatical difficulties (groan) that I missed and realized that I should have had it professionally edited after I had reworked and released it. So to those of you who have read it, I apologize for that and will work to eliminate those errors in the future. I will consider that as a lesson learned, and never try to edit my own work again!

For those of you who are waiting for Huntington to be released, keep an eye out here, on my Facebook page ,and my Twitter page. As soon as I know when it will be released, I’ll let you know. I’ll also be giving a preview of the cover art once that’s ready, as well.

I hope you’re all enjoying your winter, stay warm if you’re in one of the colder climates.

Hello Everyone,

Today is Saturday, October 4, 2014, which will make today the fifth day that Anawyn has been available – at last count, the book had been downloaded 32 times, and of those 32 times, 10 people have purchased it. That’s incredibly encouraging, and I want to give a very happy THANK YOU to all of you have been willing to check it out. I wasn’t really expecting to sell any so soon, especially considering that I haven’t done any kind of marketing yet. So again, thank you very much for spending your hard earned cash and time on an unknown writer!

I also saw today that I picked up four followers on Facebook! Another big surprise… so a huge THANK YOU to those first four people! If you haven’t had a chance to see my page, click here. I just got it up and running and haven’t had a chance to put much on it yet (not even a picture) but that will soon change. I have lots to do, and not quite enough time to do it all in!

And before I go, I need to ask a favor… if you read the book, and enjoyed the time you spent in Anawyn, could you please tell you friends, and leave me a review at whichever retailer you purchased it from?  Word of mouth is often the best advertising!

Thank you for your support, and have a great rest of the day!
