I've been having a tough time getting a completed 1st draft of "The Door" finished by the end of this summer as I originally planned. The story is coming along very nicely, however I had planned on releasing it in late September/early October, which is becoming less and less likely.
Furthermore, I had already planned on releasing "The Vampyre Blogs - Coming Home" in December to catch the holiday crowds.
So I would like to know how you would feel about a "Double-Release" in December?
I have been hearing from a number of people who have been clamoring for one or both books, and I'm perfectly at ease with the idea of releasing both at or around the same time.
Furthermore, I want to let you all know that I've already got at least one other book lined up for the middle of next year, so you won't have to wait long for another installment.
Please leave your thoughts on this idea in the comment section below. Your opinions are important to me, so please take advantage of this opportunity to express your feelings and wishes.
PS: The next entry will go back to telling you all about my collaborators and how I chose them. Until then, keep writing.

As you all know, I've been busy recording audiobooks at home. I've already gotten "Forever's Too Long", my wife Helen's first solo novel, published on Audible where it received a 5-star review. So of course I was eager to turn another of her books into audio as well. So I began recording her second book "Forever Haunted". Now having shared on this blog all the technical aspects that I use to record the books, I thought it might be fun to share one or two... um... a few? Oh hell, I make a LOT of mistakes and I run into some other 'obstacles' that I thought might help prepare you all for some of what you might encounter. So, here's the first (of what I suspect will be a growing library) of my blooper outtakes... Now remember folks, "We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We
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
