What’s going on?

Spending so much time writing (and caregiving, but that’s another story), but I should post some updates.

Cover of The Beta Testers, first draft. Needs work, especially the fonts.

  • Preparing the print version of *Playing Harmonica Like A Real Musician*. I planned a March 21 launch date, but I don’t know now. The graphics are giving me trouble. Might have to print something easier, so I’m prepping *Damage Control* while I figure out the graphics.
  • Getting into third draft of The Beta Testers, a new fiction work. There’s a dummy page up on my authors’ site, but I think I’m ready to put one up here. Still working with a March 21 launch date.
  • Sketching out possible story lines for a potential mystery series.
  • Setting up an open-source system for my next nonfiction work. It’s a reissue/reframing/total rewrite of an existing work. If you’re into watching me work,

Should slip some time letting folks know I have some work going, huh?


Playing catch-up

Note to self: This website needs some love, too.

If you’re following this site, you’d know I had just released Part I of a new novel (Desert Vendetta) and put out a cheat sheet for musicians. But that was months ago.

Which means this site needs some love. From me. Here are some updates:

  • Desert Vendetta has been released, and I removed the parts from Amazon. If you click on those links now, you’ll be sent off to 404ville.

  • Playing Harmonica Like A Real Musician is also out, and it’s moving quite well. This is the logical conclusion to the cheat sheet. I’m now working on a print version, which I expect to release through Createspace on March 21.

  • I’m deep into second draft on my fourth novel, The Beta Testers. I expect to release it March 21.

As I go I will add links to the books here. I’m also rewriting a few things because I’m putting more emphasis into books and less into customer work.

That’s all I can think of for now.

Now wherever your finer ebooks are sold …

They tell me it’s not all Kindle.

Really. There are all these other ebook companies around, too. Apple. Kobo. Nook, which is still around. Even some of the other sites such as Oyster and Scribd, where you pay a monthly rate and grab all the books you can read.

But it’s not all Kindle. Because of that, most of my work is now up on those other sites. Don’t thank me, thank Smashwords.

So go to the bookseller of choice and run a search. Punch in the author’s name and you might find something.

Next: Within a few months I hope to have real-live print versions of B.I.C. Cartel and maybe Damage Control up. Checking out Createspace now.

Watch for more versions. This is gonna be fun.



Stuff happens

Due to intense family issues, my production schedule is knocked off track by at least two weeks.

My lastest nonfiction work, Ink Stained Wretch, is expected to be out Nov. 15.

My new novel Desert Stories will come out in its entirety sometime in February. I think.

Really, these projects are not exactly on my mind right now. They will be later, though.
