*UPDATE: THE NEXT BOOKS IN MY PARA-EARTH SERIES WILL BE...*
After giving it a lot of thought and listening to feedback from readers both here and on my blogs I've come to a final decision on what order the next few books will be coming in...
Late November 2014 "THE VAMPYRE BLOGS" will be released first. This will be the first of at least 2 books. The story line I've been creating has grown to such an extent that it cannot be told in just one novel So I will do what I've been doing with the other books. A complete story will be told with a few dangling plot lines that will be addressed and wrapped up in the 2nd book which will come in time for Christmas 2015.
In May 2015 "THE DOOR" will be released and will take up where both "THE BRIDGE" and "THE SHIP" left off. It will reunite Alex, Veronica, Cassie and Julie. I won't give any spoilers away except to say that not only with the looming confrontation with the mysterious white-haired man will take place, but also the secret behind the ghostly Brandon will be fully revealed.
NOTE: Even though the story will wrap up a number of plot lines, this will NOT be the last you see of these characters. They will be back in future stories as well as making appearances in other novels So if you've grown attached to them, know you'll be seeing more of them down the road.
So that's where things stand and what you can expect in the next 18 months folks. I want to thank everyone who gave me feedback. I plan to try and release 2 novels a year, provided my school schedule for the next 3 years will permit.
In the meantime, please spread the word about my books to everyone you know. I'm leaving the link to my webpage below, which has both books and how to get them in whichever format they wish: KINDLE, NOOK, PDF, SONY E-READER, APPLE, or TRADE PAPERBACK:

Well, my wife Helen and I have finally finished moving into our new place. I'll be posting some more videos from my Vlog about that shortly, but I wanted to focus on another subject today. Hobbies, talents, things people do for adventure, enjoyment and relaxation. Now in creating characters that seem real to the audience I've found that the more real and reachable the characters are (i. e. they're like people you know or might meet) they're the ones that the readers seem to really relate to and even come to love. Now one method I've used to make my characters seem more human and real is to give them traits that are familiar, and even somewhat odd but intriguing. I've given characters hobbies or activities I've tried. When they are finished with what I've written, some have even gone and done research of their own on the activity. Some have even taken it up and made it a part of their lives. But how did that happen? Simple, whether it's pla
Okay, yesterday was a big day for me. My novel "THE BRIDGE" is now available in two 'brick-and-mortar' bookstores. How did I make this happen? Are sales jumping through the roof? Is my name out there so much that fans are demanding it be available everywhere? Two words.... I WISH! No, the simple truth is when you're an Indie Author (someone who has published through Createspace or other means to make a printed copy of your book), you have to do a lot of things yourself. One of them is marketing and getting your book into stores. Now, if you've done a good job marketing and your sales on Amazon and Barnes and Noble websites are going really well, you might land up in bookstores. Some chains look to those sites to see what's the hottest sellers going and is it available in print form. They don't want to be left out of the loop and fall behind. But you have to have great sales for that to happen. But if you're just starting out and are
The last 7 days have kept me busy. I mean REALLY busy. And the sad thing about it all is that some of this could have been avoided....up to a point. Now I'm talking about re-editing my first novel AFTER it had already come out. Why would I do that? Because in spite of the combined efforts of myself and 2-3 other people checking the novel over for grammatical errors, a number of them got past all of us. From day one, I was determined to try and put out as good a product as I possibly could. And when I found out I'd failed, I felt obligated to go back and fix things. Now, I'm sure a number of you are wondering to yourselves, "Is he saying he never got it professionally edited?" The answer is, "I did not." Now, this is not because I was so arrogant in my own writing abilities, nor was it because I was being cheap and didn't want to put the money out. The truth is... my wife and I have applied for Food Stamps and have been getting aid from my
