New review on Amazon

Posted on
I just noticed I got another review for Under a Dark Sky on Amazon. It's been a while since it was posted, which just goes to show how often I visit Amazon and check out my novel. I need to step up my game there,
Twisted concept and fun
The protagonist isn't who he thinks he is and continues to develop throughout the book. He is changed by the people who surround him. The action pulled the reader and the protagonist forward. The twists are philosophical and keep the reader guessing. I wonder what the next steps will be and who he will have to fight...
4/5 stars

I really like that the reviewer called it a "twisted concept". Mission accomplished.

New year, new Writer's Retreat

Posted on
It's that time of the year again when I go off on a secluded writer's retreat to create great art together with my author friends. So far, so good. I've got some solid writing done. Now it's time for lunch and then back into the cave.

UADS will be available for free on Amazon between December 23 and 27!

The writing goes well

Posted on
Writing has picked up again, and I'm now nearing the end of the first draft of the sequel to Under a Dark Sky.
I still have the final showdown to write and I want to get it properly epic. It needs to be a satisfying ending to the novel while at the same time leave an opening to the third and final volume of the Worldburner suite. Not an easy feat.

I got a thousand words written today

Between changing some blinds, putting up a baby gate and clearing out part of the garage, I got a thousand words written on Under a Winter Sun.
So it should be ready some time next century.

Oh, the grand life of being a part time writer on baby leave

Posted on
After driving the big kid off to school, doing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen I get an hour or two to write while my girlfriend and the baby sleeps. Perfect!
I got 2K words down yesterday. Progress on the sequel to Under a Dark Sky is slow but steady.
Keep your fingers crossed the baby continues to sleep.
