I have no idea what's going on

But let's find out

I am in my 40s and recently quit my job of 20 years to take care of my ill son and to pursue my love of writing.  Within this blog, I hope to cover all the ups and downs I will face as I go from unpublished to published writer, while facing the challenges of being a stay at home dad to a teenager battling Crohns and colitis. Along the way I'll spout off on pop culture and revisit the entertainment that made me the person I am today.  My writing primarily falls under horror but I hope to branch out to other genres as I travel down this path.

The Pope Lick Massacre is almost ready.

I am getting very close to getting this out to the public. I have a proofreading copy in hand and after going over it, I can fix any last-minute proofing issues. There were a few in The Shadow Within when it was released and it drove me crazy. In my rush to get it out a few typos slipped by and while I was super excited and proud to get it out, I was a bit embarrassed by the early copies that got out. I know even the big boys release books with an error here or there, but us independent writers want (and need) to do better. It means a lot to me when you give my books a chance, and I want to make sure you have something as close to perfect as possible.

Another bit of great news, The Independent Book Review has reviewed the book and given it a really good review. The site would like to showcase it (something they did with The Shadow Within) and that is awesome and humbling news. I will share a few of their quotes, but until it is released on their site I have to keep the complete review to myself.

That being said, I'm moving through both the kindle and paperback versions to try and catch anything that slipped through the cracks and I hope to have a release date for you in the next couple of days. Until then I have the book trailer complete to give you an idea of what it's about...
