The Dragon's Pawn out of my hands

I'm really starting to like this writing gig.  Less than five months ago my first legitimate novel was released by Black Rose Writing, an independent press in Texas.  Tomorrow, I will submit the revised copy of book two, The Dragon's Pawn.  It's out of my hands.  And, believe it or not, I'm ready to let go.

The Canaanshade series continues.  Now I am hard at work on book three, The Treasure of L'lor Rac Siwel.  Book three highlights the war to end all wars of Canaanshade...the surface dwellers are under attack by all the underground creatures and the giants.  If the infamous red and black dragon chimes in, the war will definitely tip in the favor of evil.

What will happen?  Will the surface dwellers join forces in time?  And will our heroes find a way back to the real world before it's too late?  I'll let you know the answers to these questions and more when the time comes.  Until then...stay tuned.

The Adventure Continues

It's hard to believe The Pact has been out for two months already.  The Dragon's Pawn is poised for a late spring/early summer 2014 release, and book three is underway.  Here are my suggested themes:

The Pact - "No one should ever have to stand alone."

The Dragon's Pawn - "Redemption is possible for everyone."

The Treasure of L'lor Rac Siwel - "Heroism requires sacrifice."

Return to Canannshade - "Love conquers all."

Of course, only time will tell how the subsequent books turn out, but that's where it's all heading.  I am hoping book three will release in 2015 and book four in 2016.  That would be cool because my 35th high school class reunion is in the summer of 2016.

Keep reading.  Keep giving your feedback.  The Pact begins the story.  With The Dragon's Pawn, the adventure continues.  Thanks for your support.

Back and Running

Hey, everyone, I'm back and running.  Been extremely busy with church, five kids still living at home, trying to sell our home, and finishing book two, The Dragon's Pawn.

It's been really wild lately.  I've been asked by my publisher to attend the Tucson Book Festival in March 2014.  I live in Tennessee, so that's quite and honor and a trip.  I accepted.

I didn't realize how much PR a writer has to do in the process of getting a writing career launched.  It's a lot of work, but it's fun too.  Of course I still have a full time career (pastor) and a full house of people (five kids and two adults).

It is truly an amazing journey...beginning a writing career.  It took forever to finish the first book.  Now I can't seem to write them fast enough.  The story's already in my head and anxious to get onto the page.  If you've read the first book, The Pact, I would love your feedback (+ or -).  It all helps.

Anyway, I'll try to be back on a regular least once a keep you posted as to the progress.  Thanks for your patience.
