With Sunrise Comes the Dawning...

One of the most amazing things about tomorrow is the idea of hope. Tomorrow things might change.

This past weekend I got a wonderful chance to look into a great tomorrow, not only for myself but for two fellow authors as well: Kay Painter, the author of From and Sorrow to Service, and Isaiah Silkwood, the author Of Pirates and Werewolves. Together we experienced the pleasure of the Saturday Market, hosted by the city of Ontario, OR. The weather was warm and the day as bright as the smiles of the remarkable people we met.

Yes, we all sold books, all had new connections and  networks generated, but above all this we had the opportunity to meet with many of God's children; to pray and fellowship with them.

This brings me back to the question of tomorrow. Coming out of the Saturday Market, I was able to complete my edits on Kracken and am nearing the finish line. I can see ahead of me the end of one journey and the beginning of a brand new adventure: my tomorrow. Thanks to all of you who have traveled with me and for those who will be joining at the next stop. In the words of the conductor, "All Aboard, next stop Kracken!"

Back in the Game

Back in the game. Well I'm back from vacation, well sort of - my official last day is tomorrow-  and ready to get back to work. I took to the road and spent some refreshing time on the coast with my wife and family. Awesome!

Well enough of that. I am very excited to report that the reviews from the pre-read sampling of Kracken have been fantastic. Don't worry, for those of you who showed interest in being a part of the pre-release pre-read that is still to come.  This small sampling group is a step prior in the process as we get Kracken ready for release. I will be contacting you soon for your email addresses where you would like the pre-read manuscript sent. I am so excited.

But in the meantime allow me to direct your attention to a fantastic new author, Isaiah Silkwood. Silkwood has recently released his first novel, Of Pirates and Werewolves, and has hit it out of the park. (Look at me using baseball metaphors.) Of Pirates and Werewolves is a fanciful romp with pirates, cannibals, cyclopes and a cantankerous parrot. You'll love it!  Think Pirates of the Caribbean with a twist of Percy Jackson thrown in the mix.

Well if I'm really gong to get Kracken out on time, I'd better get back to work. See ya soon.
