Zombies, Cats, and Fire... Oh My!

Hi everyone!

    I know it's been a while again, but it's been a bit busy lately. However, I am happy to report that Ground Zero is now available in both paperback and kindle formats. A huge thank you to Christian Bentulan for the amazing cover!

    Now, the main reason I have been having a hard time lately is that I lost my cat CJ a few weeks ago.
It hit me hard. I've had her since she was about six weeks old, and I was nineteen. She's been around nearly half my life, so losing her so suddenly was hard. It made concentrating on anything difficult for a while. Just over a week after that, my cat Tracker broke his leg, and is currently on cage rest at the vet where I work after having surgery to repair the limb. Less than a week later, one of our newer arrivals to the farm, Stanley, came up positive for FIV (feline aids). Thankfully, for now, he will be able to live his life. At least until some illness hits that his compromised immune system can't handle. I know. Probably more information than you wanted, but all of this led up to me doing almost no writing for the last month or so.

    Thankfully, I am finally starting to feel a bit better about things, and am now back to work on Burn. For those who have read the Earthshaker series, some of the characters in Burn will be familiar. This is the first book in the Earthshaker companion series (series name TBD), and will include both old and new characters. It will follow its own story as well, so new readers will be able to enjoy it as much as those who've read all five of the Earthshaker books.
   I guess that's all the news I have for now. Hope you're all having a fabulous day!

    Happy Reading!

ZOMBIES!!! (and other news :) )

Hi all!

    I know, it's been a while since I've done a blog post. My bad. Time gets away from me, and I forget to post. Anyway, I'm here now, so you can relax. 😉
    Anyway, my most recent news is that Ground Zero (first in my new zombie apoc series) is currently at the editor. I'm never quite sure exactly how long that process will take, but it shouldn't be too much longer before I can start getting excited for it's release. If you've read Bite-Sized Offerings, Ground Zero is the continuation of my short story Zero included in the anthology. If you haven't read it, you should consider picking up a copy. The stories are entertaining, and all proceeds go to paying the medical bills for a little girl who has had multiple heart surgeries, and other health problems as well. Cover reveal and a summary of Ground Zero will be posted soon!
    The next project in line is the first book in the companion series to the Earthshaker Series. The first book is titled: Burn. More information will be available as I go, but I can tell you this: the main character is pyrokinetic, and some characters from the Earthshaker series will be involved.
    I am excited to share both of these novels with everyone, and can't wait to see what you all think!
    Happy Reading!
