Traveling With the Hobbit

Some may say that I’m coming into this party late. I’m not of that inclination. I believe that timing is everything and that the providential hand of God is never off since He created time. Now, what exactly am I talking about? My journey into the world of Middle-Earth, specifically with a hobbit named Bilbo.

Review – First King of Shannara

In my slow return back to writing, I have made it a point to read more simultaneously. I always try to read at least two books at the same time, one fiction and one non-fiction. Recently, I finished a book that is part of a series I discovered was going to become a television series picked up by MTV in 2015. Like the old saying goes, the book will probably be better than the show. However, my concern is is it worth my time to read. Here are my thoughts on the prequel of the series.

My Book Cover Journey – Part II: The Search

One of the things that I have been working on behind the scenes is book cover art for Blackson’s Revenge. Well…technically I’ve been giving input to my book cover artist as we’ve been going back and forth on how to make it look compelling. I’m excited with what he has put together so far.

My Book Cover Journey: Part I – Research

I had said in my last post that I was going to chronicle my journey in making the book cover for my sci-fi/fantasy thriller Blackson’s Revenge. Again, I haven’t written a syllable of the novel yet, mainly because I want you to come along with me in the whole writing process. The best way to

My Book Cover Journey – Preface

Being in the business of indie publishing, I would be remiss if I didn’t know a little bit of how to put out a book and all of the many facets that go into it. With the industry the way that it is, we’re learning something new everyday. I am, by no means, an expert.

The Basement and Other Sundry Items

I wanted to pop in to tell you the lowdown on what’s going down. I said that The Basement was going to be out this weekend in my last post. But, as life would have it, we’re going to be delaying that by about a week here.  Here’s the thing… I’m in a heavy editing
