Lastly, work continues to the sequel, The Prophecy. It may seem like I haven't made much progress lately, but I've been going through and making some pretty significant changes to what I had already written a while ago. I have now officially moved on to writing new material, and progress should be fairly steady from here on. I can't wait to see it published with its predecessor!

Happiness is...

Things that make me happy:

The Sentient, in its infancy, placing in the top 100 kindle purchases for Metaphysical & Visionary Science Fiction books (thank you, Ms. Pritchard, for the advice on metadata tags),


two awesome 5 star reviews on amazon, as well as a Goodreads rating of 5 stars from someone I don't actually know in person (aka they're not just saying they like it to be nice!)

I jokingly suggested that I should make this picture from last night my new author photo:

 Then talking with fellow indie author M.R. Pritchard, we decided that the drink in my hand should change in subsequent pictures to reflect the success of my books. So today it's Coors, tomorrow Cristal, b*@$%es!

The Next Step

I am so excited that The Sentient has embarked out into the world! A bit nervous too, anxious to see how it's received, but mostly just pee-my-pants excited.

(Excuse me for a moment while I go change my pants.)

Okay, I'm back. So the next step in this adventure is SPREADING THE WORD! An indie author has to wear many hats, including the one that comes with marketing duties. How will people read my book if they don't know about it? Of course there are family and friends who can be counted on to read your work (thanks, guys!). It's much appreciated, but remember that if you like the book, the best thing you can do is to tell others about it. Posting a rating, and maybe even a review, on Amazon or Goodreads will tremendously help direct internet traffic to the The Sentient.

So if you read it and you love it, shout it from the rooftops! I'll be up there shouting with you!

And P.S., if you hate it, just stay inside and keep quiet; we'll be up on that roof for a while.

I kid, I kid! Every honest review has merit.

So read up, folks. I hope you enjoy the book, and if so, I'll see you on the rooftops.

Ladies and Gentlemen...

I am pleased to announce that The Sentient is now available through!

It is currently available as a paperback and as an ebook for the kindle. For at least the next 90 days it will be a kindle exclusive, but may be extended to other eReaders in the future. In the meantime, depending on which version of your eReader you have, you may be able to download the kindle app.

So tell your kids, tell your wife, and tell your husband, cuz we need everybody to be readin' up here!
