I have decided to send in my entire Sorcerer's Path series to be professionally proofed. It's time to stop using my ameteur status as an excuse for releasing best than the best work I can muster. It will take several months, possibly up to a year, to complete. That probably doesn't mean much to those who have already read it, but at least my new readers will enjoy the highest quality I can produce. It also allows me to finally get the entire series in print.

The Agent has been out for a few weeks now. I am currently working on the third installment of my Brooklyn Shadows series called Primacy of Darkness. I've already reached over 50,000 words, so it is well on its way. I hope you like the series. I enjoy writing it. As always, feel free to post any questions or comments here or on my FaceBook page.

Sorry for the page neglect. I have finished The Agent and am waiting on some beta readers to get back to me before publishing. I have already started writing the third book of my Brooklyn Shadows series and am off to a great start. I'm torn on a title. More than a year ago, when I began kicking the plot around, I had a title "Noctivagant". But now I'm thinking of doing a spinoff and that would make for a better title for that series. I'm thinking about using "Shadows of the Past" for this book. Leo faces not just Jack the Ripper, but a ghost from his past.

Good news! (Maybe). My current book is too large for a single volume. I'm at 120k words and just getting started on the third part, so I have decided to start cleaning up the manuscript to the first two parts to be bound in a single book. It is the only way I am going to be able to get a book out before next year. I just hope it doesn't flub so bad no one reads the second one.

When it comes to social media, I fail horribly at multitasking. It is all I can do to maintain a Facebook page. My next book, Transcended, is over 106k words now. While this would normally be nearing its conclusion for my other works, this one is a bit different. Transcended is basically three books in one. I expect it to reach near 200k words by the time I finish, hence the time it is taking me to write it. I plan to hire a proofreader, so that will add at least two months to the production time. I hope it is worth the wait. It is vastly different than what I have written int he past. It is about the character and not supported by frequent action scenes. I hope the character portrayal and dialogue is enough to keep readers' hooked.

It appears that something happened to book 4's manuscript. Amazon had an old edition published instead of the newer one. I don't know if I made the mistake or they somehow rolled back an edition. I have uploaded the new manuscript. I believe the biggest change was removing a scene between Sandy and a couple of characters whose only purpose was some humor.

I've topped 30,000 words on Transcended and I've only scratched the surface of the story. It's taking a little longer to get to the heart of it than I had hoped. Many readers have short attention spans these days and I fear some will put it down as boring due to the lack of "excitement" that was so frequent in The Sorcerer's Path. Transcended is more of a Huck Fynn meets Bad Santa kind of story. Most of the fun is in the dialogue and my hero's character and not in epic battles and flashy displays of magic. I hope my narrative and dialog is entertaining enough to keep readers' interest.
