I am just back from Cincinnati where I attended the GHC Midwest for the first time. Conventions like this can be grueling when you’re manning a booth on your own, but fortunately I had an opportunity to catch-up with three old friends who stopped by to help me pass the time at my booth. To each[…]
Now that I have cover art for The Colder Moon, I wanted to share it. As with The Darker Road and The Lesser Sun, the cover was designed by Daryle Beam of Bright Boy Designs and illustrated by his brother-in-law, Michael Salter. And, like those covers, I think it looks great.
For the few who still check here in the hopes of finding news about the third book of The Wandering series, I have good news. The cover is now finished – at least the front cover. We are still working on the copy for the back cover. The editing is finished, I now have just a[…]
As a young teacher I learned a valuable lesson: the hardest paper to grade was always the first one. The longer I put it off, the more I procrastinated and did something else, the larger the stack of waiting papers loomed and the more difficult it was to start. On the other hand, if I[…]
With the 3rd annual Realm Makers conference just around the corner – where I will once more be happy to serve on the faculty – I have a new interview posted at the webpage for the Faith and Fantasy Alliance. I have posted the link here for any who might want to go and read[…]

Here it is: Sages of Darkness is an exciting action packed series about a demon[…]
I want to thank Family Fiction for the chance to do an interview about “The Lesser Sun,” the second book in The Wandering, to correspond with its Fall release. While the book doesn’t look like it’ll be out in October as we’d hoped, I trust it won’t be delayed too much longer. In the meantime,[…]
Just a quick note to say I have a new interview posted at the Enclave Publishing website. Here’s the link if you are interested. My thanks to Morgan Busse and Enclave for the chance to do the interview.
This post is part of a series on Ray Bradbury and his book, “The Martian Chronicles,” which will run from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. Well, way back over Memorial Day weekend when I posted my first official post for my summer project of doing a ‘book club’ on Ray Bradbury’s classic, The[…]
