I am terrible at this

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.

Transcended update

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.

Sorry for the lack of updates.

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.

The Sorcerer's Vengeance error

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.

Transcended update

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.

Blood Conspiracy is on Amazon

I just uploaded Blood Conspiracy to Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JH3FLAA
I will have it in print as soon as I defeat MS Word's auto format. It is currently refusing to adhere to my commands when it comes to section breaks like an itinerant HAL. "I cannot do that, Dave." I'm going to install Open Office and see if it's formatting features are a little less tyrannical.

My cover illustrator made me a neat wallpaper using all the glyphs she designed.
