Beyond Violet Cover Reveal

Hey, everybody! I swear I don’t intend to forget I have a website, but it just kind of happens from time to time. Between the day job, taxes, and all sorts of other stuff, I kind of got off track for a bit. But I’m back to say that I’m working hard on editing Beyond Violet and am hoping for a mid-May release! As proof, here’s the cover reveal for the final volume.

Pretty great, right? As usual, the people at The Cover Collection did an outstanding job. If you’re an indie author, I highly recommend them.

Also, if you’re on Facebook, be sure to stop by my friend Carol Davis’s “Spring” Into Reading Book Fair event this Saturday, May 2nd. There are going to be tons of free and discounted books up for grabs, plus you’ll be able to meet and chat with lots of awesome indie authors. I’ll be hosting the event from 5:00 to 5:30 PM EST, and I think it’s going to be tons of fun. I’ll be sure to post a separate update in a few days to remind everybody. Until then, be good to each other!

The Singularity Is Upon Us!

That’s right! At long last, THE A.I. CHRONICLES is here! Featuring 13 amazing authors (including yours truly), this title is rocketing up the charts even as I type out this update. Be sure to grab yours now for just $5.99!

Plus, many of us will be getting together at the Facebook Launch Party to chat with readers, giveaway great prizes, and more! Be sure to stop by for a chance to win copies of The Lazarus Particle, the entire VIOLET series, and lots more!

Updates Coming Soon!

I know it’s been forever since I’ve updated, but I’ve been working on some major updates, including new covers for the VIOLET series and (hopefully) a new website that I’ll be able to unveil soon. I know, that’s a fairly nebulous timetable, but it’s the best I can do for now.

The new covers should be available much sooner, however, and not a moment too soon! As much fun as I’ve had playing amateur cover artist, it’s time to give the VIOLET series the professional treatment it deserves. I’m especially excited because these covers are being designed by Debbie at TheCoverCollection.com, the artist behind the cover for The Lazarus Particle.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! I also have several new anthology stories in various stages of development that I can’t wait to get permission to talk about. Until then, you’ll just have to take my word that the wait will definitely have been worth it.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

Happy New Year, all! I’ve got some exciting news for you all so I’m going to get right to it…

As many of you know, I’m part of a small writers’ group who have all previously published fan fiction in the world of Hugh Howey’s WOOL. Last year, of course, we produced a charity anthology called WOOL Gathering which was extremely successful and continues to benefit a great cause, the NaNoWriMo Young Writers’ Fund.

We had so much fun working on that anthology and were so pleased with the success that we decided to put together a new anthology, this one featuring original stories about superheroes. The end result, The Powers That Be: A Superhero Collection, is set to be released on Amazon tomorrow and is available for preorder for 99¢ right now. The best part? All proceeds benefit the Sickle Cell Clinic at the Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.

Plus, many of the contributing authors will be hosting a Facebook Launch Party where you can meet and chat with us plus download and win free books. I’ll be giving away signed copies of The Lazarus Particle and This Mortal Coil, so be sure to swing by and grab some freebies for yourself!

(Oh, and just between you and me, I’ll also be publishing Betraying Violet, the fourth book in the VIOLET serial, tomorrow. Check back bright and early for the link!)

“Breaking Violet: A Violet Story”

Last week I promised an announcement about the next installment in my VIOLET serial, and here it is!

The next title in the Violet series will be called Breaking Violet: A Violet Story and should be available on Amazon by the end of the month. Here’s a look at the cover:

I’ve also added a VIOLET tab to the menu bar up top so that you can get info and buy the books more easily. It’s still a bit of a work in progress, but it should be fully operational in a few days.

And that’s it for right now! I’d love to tell you more, but I’m off to work on the fourth installment of the series. Until next time, everybody.

Still Here, Still Writing!

Wow, has it really been nearly a month since I updated? Sorry about that!

Suffice it to say, it’s been a busy month. I’m currently working on expanding the world of Becoming Violet with a series of new stories. Plus, I also have a few other stories percolating in the old hopper.

There’s a possibility I may explore one as my subject for National Novel Writing Month this year, but I haven’t decided on that one way or another. It’s also just as likely I may pass on NaNoWriMo entirely this year to focus on the Violet stories. Thankfully, I still have a few weeks left to decide.

I do have a cover almost finished for the Violet collection that I intend to debut just as soon as I’ve committed to a name for the stories as a group.

And that’s about it for now! Thanks for being patient and, as usual, be good to each other!

Giveaway Success!

Well, the giveaways are over and the winners are in. The experience was tons of fun, in no small part because both giveaways combined for more than 1,200 entries! To that, I can say only…

WHOA!!!

Seriously. I was expecting (read: hoping) for a couple hundred or so, but 1,206? That’s pretty wild.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who entered! If you won, congratulations! If you didn’t, don’t fret — I’ll definitely be doing more giveaways sooner rather than later.

And if you just can’t wait, all you have to do is follow the links in the left and right sidebars to buy them now from Amazon!

Until next time, everyone enjoy your weekend and be good to each other.
