Have you seen a bad cover lately? Check out these. Yikes! My favorite is the screenshot of the video game with low-quality graphics. Pretty sweet, dude who made that.

The audio book for Life Descending is now available. Narrated by the wonderful John Alexander Brancy, the world of The Cry of Havoc really comes to life in this first book, with so many great voices and a real sense for tempo, his voice performance is sure to please. Listen to the five minute sample at Audbile.

The audio glossary for Life Descending is now up on my website. If you've ever read a fantasy book with all their invented and foreign words and wanted to know exactly how to say them, well now you can, for my fantasy saga at least!  Check it out HERE. I plan on having the words for Darkness Devouring up soon, too.

Fancy Pen Today I wrote my 500,000th word of fiction (excluding school assignments and all that). It was a milestone I wanted to reach by 25 and I accomplished it! 30,000 words into my 5th book, Dirges (The Road to Extinction, Book 3) saw the goal and then passed it by. Now another 60-90K to go . . .
It's here! It's finally here!

The Road to Extinction trilogy picked up by Permuted Press!
Sat, 09 Mar 2013 21:25:31 GMT
That's right! You read that right, At the End, and the next two books in The Road to Extinction trilogy, have been picked up by the small publisher, Permuted Press! They are a niche publisher, focused on Apocalyptic/Zombie books, and At the End is sure to fit right in.

It all started when Jacob Kier, owner of Permuted, sent me an out-of-the-blue email about the possibility of having the trilogy published by them. Needless to say (but I'll say it anyway) I was very interested. I know At the End could be so much more than it is, but not having the resources (bank rolls of cash for editing/publicity), it has done as well as it could (priced at free = zero return! Yikes!), so the opportunity was too great to pass on.

Hopefully it becomes everything I know it can be, and I can't wait to see the finished products of all three books!

Goodbye Poetry Month
Tue, 01 May 2012 03:16:57 GMT
I thought some cowboy poetry was in order for the last day of Poetry Month. Walt Clark "The Billy Goat," The Nighthawk: A Collection of Cowboy Poetry (John Day, OR: Concho Publishers, 1994), 51-52.

The Billy Goat by Walt Clark

My horses had distemper
  the vet bill, it was bad.
But I didn't want to lose my ponies
  they were all that I had.

My neighbor says, "get a billy goat
  he will keep distemper down."
So I bought a billy goat
  at an auction yard in town.

I turns him with the horses
  he scares them all, you bet,
They stampede through the fences
  and again, I call the vet.

He stitches up the wire cuts
  and gets them settled down,
But they still bunch in a corner
  when that billy goat comes around.

When I got his monthly bill
  it made me shake my head.
I wish I'd shot the billy goat
  and hired a vert instead.

I was cleaning out a storeroom
  where I kept my treasures of gold.
I found this box of dynamite
  I knew was very old.

I sat it in the shade of a building,
  I would dispose of later on.
When I came back from lunch
  that dynamite was gone.

There stood that billy goat
  he was puffed up like a toad.
He had eaten al the dynamite
  he really had a load.

Well, I smiles to myself
  this won't be so bad.
I'll be rid of the dynamite
  and all the troubles that I had.

I had this matched team of mules
  tied down there in the barn.
I really took care of that team
  so they wouldn't come to harm.

They were a fine looking team
  my joy and delight.
You couldn't tell them apart
  except she was black and he was white.

And the old bully goat walks in
  behind that pair of mules.
Now they like his smell
  they're nobody's fools.

The black mule kicks him in the belly
  that dynamite did explode.
The explosion was so loud
  they heard it miles down the road.

The barn was blown to smithereens
  I couldn't find the mules, not even any hair.
But out there under the clothesline
  that goat was chewing my underwear.

Now if you have distemper
  a billy goat don't ever get.
Just take it all in stride
  and hire yourself a vet.

My favorite of cowboy poetry, though I haven't read much of the genre. I hope it was enjoyable.
