Reserve your physical edition copy today! Available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Many More! Amazon doesn’t allow pre orders from aggregate sites (I am publishing the ebook edition through Draft2Digital.com) so sadly the kindle edition isn’t available for preorder just yet. The NOOK and APPLE editions are though. An audible.com edition is being planned, hopefully releasing a few months after the initial launch. I will post more information about the audiobook… Read More

Previously, I’ve covered what I’ve learned about pre-planning and writing the first draft of a novel. In this post I hope to cover some of what I learned about the post-first-draft days, including preliminary editing and beta readers. As I said before, in your first draft you can allow yourself to be imperfect, because now you’re going to make it better. First draft in the bag, maybe you want to take a… Read More

In part one of this series, I went over what I discovered during the pre-planning stages of writing. In this part, I intend to tell you what I learned during the hike. I was very naive to word count. I knew I wanted to write a novel that was what I considered “novel length“, so I picked up a few of my favorite books and learned they were about 350 pages. I… Read More

I have always wanted to write a novel. When I was in third grade, I wrote a really bad novel that never got finished. When I was in junior high, I wrote two really bad novels that were basically Metal Gear fan fictions. So, as a thirty two year old, when I sat down to get started writing the novel I intend to publish this year, I had put some mistakes behind… Read More

Plus, thanks to COVID-19, I’m working from home in self quarantine. They say Shakespeare wrote King Lear while he was in similar circumstances. Book 2’s outline feels really good. When I started IN THE ORBIT OF SIRENS, I planned… Read More
