Egromancer

Egromancer was Sir Richard Burton’s way of saying necromancer. It was based on Middle English forms of the word. He uses it in his translation of Arabian Nights. The egromancer shows up often in the stories. They don’t have specific powers. A horse can fly? That’s…

Book Reviews: Vivatera

  I was in Utah a few weeks ago and learned a lot. Also met a lot of cool people. A new habit I wanted to form was doing regular book reviews. A cool person I met was Candace J. Thomas, author of Vivatera. And…

Why a strong protagonist female matters – The Sound of the Stones debut

The below post was written by Beth Hammond, a writing buddy and a talented artist. It was supposed to be posted Sunday, but life happens and I forget things. She had a book recently release, which is below, so please check it out. There…

Hurskfjell – Plotting Done

I am beyond excited for numerous reasons. Though one of them is not knowing where my book is at with the publisher. I get I took forever, but come on! My plotting is done! I was able to apply more ash while camping this…

A New Story Begins

It feels so good. I feel like a new man now that the novel is out of my hands. Of course, I still have the “And again!” mentality, but hey, that’s life. And my publisher hasn’t said anything about the ms getting to them….

Final Edit

Sixty. It blinked. It read. It said sixty. Sure there were notes of things to fix, but it would take an hour tops. Those sixty pages. I looked up, bags under my eyes. I grimaced. “I can do it.” My lips were swollen and…

Bad Romance

This weekend has been a good one for my pursuit of all things literary. My edits for an anthology game back as enchanting and charming, witty and adorable. I was informed my editor at points forgot she was supposed to be editing because she…

Heroes: Published in October

Weird. I thought this was further off. I was so focused on my novel that I forgot I will be published in October. I thought there would be no more publications this year, that my run for 2015 was finished. It was good. I…

What I wrote in my first book

It’s been a humdinger of a week. I always hate this two week stretch as it’s the only time I work a straight 12 days, the majority of them including suits, and there are a good number of flights involved. It even comes complete…

Romance of Three Kingdoms

So I’m reading Romance of the Three Kingdoms in honor of jumping back into Dynasty Warriors. For those of you unaware, they both take place in the late 100s through early to mid 200s during a tumultuous time in China where the Han Dynasty fell after…

It is finished (for now)

The first rewrite of G’desh is finished. This is what I will use as my actual copy for editing. The original manuscript was hurried, ill formed, and brutal, being a few words over 50,000. It was my NaNo, and I quickly outpaced what I…

Precipice of Terror

I stand here on a ledge. I’ve stood here before. The novel is nearly complete. With three chapters and a epilogue staring me in the face, all I can think is, “this is the end. Today is the day.” It took two months to do…

"Before the sea she stood, still as a statue but for the wind rippling in her loose lavender-grey dress and toying with her black hair - it billowed in the salty breath of the ocean like a flag of defiance."
