Writing Update, August 2018

Well, it has been a while, hasn't it? I know, I know... I've missed you too!

Anyway, I've been working a bit slowly lately, but I haven't been idle. I'm in the revision process on a new science fiction novel that will be the first part of a series. However, I want each book to be a stand-alone story, and I think book one has a conclusion that will be satisfying enough while also leaving readers wanting more. I guess you all will be the ultimate deciders when it comes to that!

Market Research
Aside from the novel, I'm working on short stories again. I've just finished one, in fact. I'm going to begin submitting to the fiction markets once more to try and get my work in front of new eyes. My goal is to write at least two short stories a month while also working on my novels. It'll mean a lot of hard but hopefully satisfying work. Maybe one day I'll even get accepted by one of the "Big Ones" like those pictured! That would be the fulfillment of a dream I had back when I first started writing, and I regret that I didn't actively pursue it the past several years.

I would like to self-servingly mention that if you've enjoyed any of my books, a review on Amazon would help me out more than you know! It's been pretty hard to get reviews lately, but they're a major factor when people are considering which books to buy.

If you'd like to leave a review, Click here to be taken directly to my Amazon Author Page. Thanks in advance!

That's all for now, aside from the usual reminder to subscribe to my email newsletter if you want to get updates and special offers in your inbox! You'll even get a free ebook for your troubles! Click here to sign up.

I hope you're all having a great summer!

Character-Naming Contest!

Hello, all! I'm about to begin writing The Lion's Crypt, the second book of The Emberlyn Chronicles, and I'm looking for some great character names! It's a fantasy series, so keep that in mind.

The rules:
1. Names must end with either a "c," a "k," or a "ck." They are intended to be male names.
2. They shouldn't sound too Vulcan; after I came up with my loose rules for the language, I realized that Vulcan names generally end in "c" or "k," so I've been trying to avoid anything that sounds too similar.
3. You may submit up to three names. I need some evil-sounding names among them.

Here are some names used in The Lion's Crown, to give you a feel for what I'm looking for: Faric, Braedok, Karak, Lanioc, Dourok.

The Prize: If I use one of your names, it will appear in The Lion's Crypt and/or the third book of the series, The Lion's Court. You will also receive an ebook copy of the book(s) your name appears in and a mention in the acknowledgements section of the book(s).

Submit your answers and any questions to with "Naming Contest" in the subject line. If you've yet to read The Lion's Crown, you can get your copy here.

This contest ends May 31, 2017.
