The Shadow Men Published

I was never really sure where the whole publish myself thing was going to end up. I still don’t know. It was single-handedly the scariest moment of my life when I hit the publish button for A Very Zombie Holiday. I knew there wasn’t going to be a sudden rush to snap up my books […]

The Dark Lands Week 14

This was a rough week of editing. I had a few chapters that just didn’t want to cooperate. I also had a brain fart moment when I didn’t save after two hours of work and my program crashed. The crash really ticked me off because I used to manage a computer center and that was […]

The Dark Lands Week 11

First week of editing has been an interesting experience. I set out with two main goals. Fix the bad sentences and fix the story continuity problems. I knew that this was going to be a quick and dirty edit. My plan was to get the story into my wife’s hands as quick as possible. My […]
