Merry Christmas

I have been lax in updating the blog, as I post most of my updates on Facebook, and even that is less frequent than I like.  It’s been four months since A Season of Storms came out, and I’ve been working on book 3, with the working title of The Whisper of God (formerly the Faces of God).  It’s the holidays, of course, and there are plenty of distractions, but I’ve managed to put a few words down on the page.

I have resolved to write every day next year. I have a full time job to pay the bills, and it sometimes takes more of my time than I’d like, but I also like to eat and sleep indoors, so you know… there it is. 

That said, I wanted to take the time, an in the spirit of the season, thank all my fans. It still seems odd to me that I have fans, but I am grateful to everyone of you.  I don’t know if you realize that a few years ago, when The Rune that Binds was released, it was a desperate attempt to make money. I was out of work and nearly out of money. With almost no promotion by me, by word of mouth only, the book rose in just a few months to a point where it sat in the top 100 dark fantasy books on Amazon, and it was bringing in enough money to meet my needs.

I have been blessed, and I am mindful where that comes from. I know the second book took longer than many of you liked, and I have committed to writing more frequently so as to make sure the third book comes out in less time.

Once again, thanks to everyone who bought both the Rune that Binds, and A Season of Storms.  I can’t tell you how much it means to me.

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

A Season of Storms, the correct version

Those of you who have been following the blog or Facebook know the troubles I’ve been having with this version of the book. Technology is a wonderful thing, and the opportunity it gives authors to take unprecedented control of their work  is no small thing. It does, however, come with headaches, and this has been very true for me with the release of the second book.

Fortunately only 9 copies were sold before I realized that the wrong file was being pushed out to people who bought the book. I have since uploaded the correct version, but it isn’t pushing out to the individuals who bought it.

So, while Amazon has been great and very responsive, it still hasn’t resolved the issue. Consequently, I’m providing the file with the correct version for those of you who have bought the book.

This opens a chance for piracy, which I am hoping does not happen. Remember, if I don’t get paid there’s no incentive to write, and I am trusting everyone not to share this file, but to send those interested in getting a copy to Amazon so that I can get paid.

It took three years from book one to book two because I have to work and that means I can only write when I have time. Help me succeed by not sharing this with others who did not buy the book.

Thanks.

Book Two: A Season of Storms

It has been a long time coming, too long, but it’s finally here.

One of the challenges of self publishing is deadlines. There is no editor to hold your feet to the fire, and you want to keep writing and revising, and there’s an ability to actually do it, until fans start holding your feet to the fire.  The formatting is still not where I want ti to be, paragraph indents appear off, but so far it looks like the changes made and laying it out in html seem to have resolved the issue.

Please let me know if you find errors so I can fix them.

As always, thank you for your patience.
