Covers and Links.

I have "Hold Still the Sky: the complete story" now available as both an ebook and a paperback. Here is the cover:

"Hold Still the Sky: the complete story" collects all six parts of this episodic novel. It is available in the amazon, barnes and noble and smashwords online stores. The paperback version is available, at this point, through amazon.com and createspace.com while the ebook version is available through all the stores mentioned linked below.


For those of you who don't know, Smashwords makes works available in a variety of formats (mobi, kindle, rtf, epub, pdf, pdb and more).

In addition to finishing up and publishing "Hold Still," I commissioned a new cover for the omnibus edition of Brief History of Humankind. Here it is:

The omnibus edition is now available through the kindle store on amazon.com. Over the next few months, I will make all three, individual "Brief History" titles and the omnibus edition available in other stores as well.


Both the "Hold Still" cover and the new omnibus cover were created by pixelstudio who I found on fiverr.com. 

Happy Holidays,

Final Editing

I have begun the last stages of editing (proofreading, formatting, cover design, checking narrative flow, etc.) for Hold Still the Sky.

I will publish both "Part Six" (for those of you who have been following along as the separate parts came out) and "Hold Still the Sky: the complete story" sometime in the next couple of weeks. I will also publish a softcover version of the complete story.

Here's the image that will be the main part of the cover:

That's all for now,

Feed the Story Monster!

I've been hammering away at the last sections of "Hold Still the Sky" this past week. Rough draft will be done tomorrow. It should take a few weeks to polish it all up so I'm estimating an up for sale date in early December.

Just in case you're wondering, here's what the Story Monster looks like:

He gets real close!

Altered Earth and Omnibus Edition

I have (finally!) finished re-editing and reformatting Altered Earth. It is up in the Kindle store and ready to go.

Also, I have (again, finally!) put together an Omnibus Edition (A Brief-History-Humankind-Omnibus-Edition) of the entire trilogy. This is something I've been looking forward to since I started the series back in July, 2011. And now it's done.

Next up: completing Hold Still the Sky. The goal is to have it up for purchase around Christmas.

I completed the re-edit of Remnant Species (Book Two of "A Brief History of Humankind") last week.
It is up in the Kindle store on Amazon.

I am over halfway through the re-edit of Altered Earth (Book Three) and it should be ready by the end of the month.

Still Editing

So far I have finished re-editing "Nova Sol" and am half way through "Remnant Species." I have, also, finished re-editing one of my short stories, "Origins."

In addition to going through my own works these past couple of months, I have been helping my father self-publish a political, historical book. He's been working on it for years and I started helping him last October. It should be out by the end of the month. I will post links and description when it's ready for purchase.

My re-vamped goal is to finish re-editing the trilogy by mid-October and finish writing "Hold Still the Sky" by the end of the year. Also, I want to put out one or two more short stories during that time frame. Once I complete the editing I'll start in with all that.

Next year I plan on working on novellas and/or screenplays. I've done long books/novels, several short stories and want to get a feel for the novella. I'm looking forward to see how my stories/ideas adapt to that length.

Wednesday, July 3, 2013


With the 4th of July almost upon us I have decided to take a few weeks off from writing.

I will return on September 15th with a new entry in the Hold Still the Sky episodic novel and with at least one more stand alone short story.

In addition, I will re-edit and re-format the books of my trilogy for an improved reading experience.

Lastly, I will offer an omnibus edition of the trilogy (all three books in one volume). This may come after Sep. 1st depending on how long all the formatting takes.

So, I will be working behind the scenes on these logistical elements of my works as well enjoying the beautiful Rocky Mountain summer days and nights.

Until September,

HSTS Update

Just fielded a question from a reader following the "Hold Still the Sky" series. He wanted to know when the next installment will be out.

Part Five of "Hold Still the Sky" should be out later this month. I estimate it will be ready for download somewhere between the 15th and 18th of June.

Here's a little preview:

"Akers sat across from Pacen. They did not face each other. The small, modular space of their apartment both separated and contained them. Even more so since they returned from the relative - though short-lived - freedom of the farm dome. Ever since they lost their child.

'Lost' was the correct word. Accurate. Precise. Their boy - Malam - was gone. Not gone dead. Just gone. Oh, and he was seven feet tall the last time they saw him.

The experiment had gone shockingly wrong. What had started as mere trepidation on Akers' part had blossomed into full horror. It had taken all of her self-control to remain calm in Hannah's presence afterwards. To pretend that nothing had happened. To make as if life were still normal. But it wasn't. Life was now a constant sluicing from from bad to worse to desperate. Never settled. Never rested. Malam was gone. Mutated and gone."

Book and Story Videos

I will post videos for my books and stories as I produce them. When I have a decent number I will make a page dedicated to them. That's a couple of weeks off. Below is the re-edit of the series trailer for the Brief History of Humankind trilogy:

Two New Stories

This past week I posted two, new stories to the Kindle store. I put up Part Four of "Hold Still the Sky" (for more info. click on link above) and a stand alone short story titled "H is for Hologram."

Here are the covers:


The resolution on the "H is for Hologram" cover is a little low here but it looks much better in the store and when downloaded. I made this cover using the Kindle Cover Creator feature which came out a few weeks ago. I created the background, swirly design in Flowpaper a while back and thought it was a good match for this title. The Part Four cover I made - as I have made all the HSTS covers - with Paper and uploaded in the KDP process.

Part Four has two stories. The first deals with Keto Newsome, a human captured by the plasmons. The second story is a return to Kara. The reader finds out what she has been up to since she was last seen at the end of Part One.

"H is for Hologram" is about an old man whose wife has recently died and a decision he has to make when a strange creature enters his life.
