At work, I'm known as "the guy that's written two books." People are constantly asking me how my writing's going. It feels good. Actually, it feels great to know that my co-workers care about my efforts outside the Day Job. It's rewarding to know that they think it's really cool that [...]

From time to time, my muse rears her head and talks to me. I’ve managed to capture some of these conversations and am sharing them with you. I will warn you that my muse is a potty-mouth. I have no control over what she tells me. Sorry. Muse: Congrats on [...]

Warmistress — First Round of Edits Finished

2013-02-17T14:02:22-06:00February 17th, 2013|Warmistress|Comments Off on Warmistress — First Round of Edits Finished

I just finished the first round of edits on Warmistress. Does this mean the novel is done? Not by a long shot! I'm going to take a week or two break from the novel to clear my head. Then I'll print the entire thing, three-hole punch it, and throw it [...]

Sorry to sound like a broken record, but I'm still editing Warmistress. I've made a few passes over chapters 11-13, but I'm not quite done with them. I did take a side character that the protagonist meets and made her quite a bit more bat-shit crazy. I either needed to [...]

Edits are continuing along nicely. I'm done with chapters nine and ten, and a decent amount through chapter eleven. I have some serious notes about going back to revise the end of chapter nine, but I want to wait until I'm all done with revisions of the book before going [...]
