Bone Sliver Complete and More

Friday was a big day for me.  I apologize for not posting sooner, but the first novel in The Nova Chronicles is complete.  I put the end on Bone Sliver at around 12:30 am CST Saturday morning, and I guess I took the rest of Saturday to recuperate and crow a little online.  It’s been amazing, and I’m not done yet.  There’s still a lot to be done if I want to launch it well in October.  I have started a separate blog for Twisted Candle Media, and you can find that and my other blog post about finishing the book here.

I hope you’ll join me for the rest of this fascinating journey.  I don’t know what’s coming around the corner.  My path’s always been a little–twisted.

Love y’all.


Bone Sliver Rewrite Update

So Close I can almost taste it. This is where it gets really scary and really exciting all at the same time.  I think it is finally almost ready for people to see it. Feeling particularly vulnerable right now, so I’m going to go and take it out on Max Edison.  Poor Guy.30pages

Bone Sliver Back Matter Idea

So I’m thinking that since Bone Sliver is written in first person, the back matter should be too.  Let me know what you think!  Hit me up on Facebook or by email!

So, I’m the guy who failed.  I failed to save the world, and it’s officially gone to shit.  There are so few normal humans left that we’re in danger of going extinct, and it’s all my fault.  I did manage to save one woman though.  In all this shit.  One person.  She’s in a coma.  I have to figure out how to be human.  Especially now that nobody’s sure of what that means anymore. This is my story.  This is how the world as you know it ended.  Use this information wisely as I think the shadow council is active but undetected in your time.  For fuck’s sake, don’t let them win this time.

33,000 Words and Counting!

Well I’m sitting right at 30,000 words on my first novel length work. It’s probably about as far to the end as it is from the beginning, and I’m still both ecstatic and terrified. I get stuck sometimes, but then I live my life for a few days and go back at it. I suppose that’s built in to keep me from going completely off the rails.

Once the thing is actually finished, of course there will be endless edits and probably a major rewrite or two or ten. But it will all be down. Then I can start on something else. I’m determined to see this one through before I do much else though, in case I try to talk myself out of it.

Even if it never sees the light of day, I will pound the entire thing out and get it somewhat polished. For now though, groceries nee put up and laundry needs hanging.
