THANK YOU – USA Today – Black and Green

As always, this is you all.

A bestseller list doesn’t happen without you. This isn’t like I ran the fastest mile, or performed a backflip on a polar bear. Bestselling lists takes thousands of people coming together to buy the same book at the same moment.

This is readers showing interest and wanting to be part of this world.

Thanks for being a part of this.



Last Week of June – Mid Summer Organizing

Favorites of the month:

I’m taking a little time out this summer to rework my OneNote files.

You may have seen in previous cheat sheets about my notes I keep for all of The Academy books. As I’m starting to get to the last few books of Scarab Beetle and the second half of Ghost Bird, the notes I had been taking for each series has become disheveled. Things I swore I’d remember I don’t now, and some small plots got lost along the way.

So the plan is to take a little time out for July and to go back and create better notes. This may push Silas back a little, but the goal is to end up with notes where I’m not having to go back and try to figure out where was that thing that I mentioned (or did I?)

In other words, better stories, and hopefully less time to write them. 🙂

Currently writing (slowly): Meeting Sang: Silas

Current side project: Learning Adobe for video making to make better Sims videos. This may take time. 🙂

Release Day – Black and Green

Today is the day we find out what happened at the gray house on Sunnyvale Court!

unnamedI hope everyone likes the new format. There are a ton of big changes, a lot of new discoveries to be made.

With the introduction of some chapters being from one of the guy’s point of view, we’ll be able to look in on them on occasion. This is something I haven’t been able to do before, but I hope you all will love. I loved writing from Dr. Green’s viewpoint. He has such a warm heart and just wants everyone to be happy.

What’s next?

Meeting Sang: Silas is still being written at the moment. That will be the next book expected to be out in the future.

Following Silas, there should be Ghost Bird: Love’s Cruel Redemption and then following that, Scarab Beetle: Tempest.

When will it happen? I don’t know yet. 🙂 I have to finish writing them and then will start the editing process. I’ll try to keep everyone up to date here about what books are where in the process.



The Week Before Black and Green

Current project: Meeting Sang: Silas (On a small pause in prep for Black and Green release)

Song of the moment: Salty Sincerity DS Remix by Clean Tears

Currently playing: Life is Feudal: Forest Village

This is the part where I hope I didn’t forget anything major in the next book coming out. All plot threads for the book closed? Did Luke forget to comb his hair? 🙂 Nerves? What?

In the next few weeks, I’m looking to continue the Sim videos. I was always disheartened about the quality the videos came out in. I also wasn’t sure about inputting my voice. The learning curve from book writing to video production is different.

But I’m putting effort into learning Adobe Premier, and hopefully, the quality will be much better. Once I learn how to use it. 🙂
