Night of the Hellhounds is at Barnes & Noble.

Comments about my stories are always welcome.

Second Kindle Book

Soon after I published Night of the Hellhounds (my first e-book, which features teenager Lenny Stevens and his friends) to Amazon’s Kindle, I received emails from some young customers wanting me to publish another story. I aimed for a February release and began working on a Vree Erickson story that had sat on the rewrite table in my writing room for many years. After several fixes and five days of editing and plot rewrites, I sent it to my main beta reader who tweaked some minor errors. Then, with the cover finished, I sent the story off to Amazon.

Here it is, not a February release, but no matter: Trespassing. As before, I ask that if you buy and read it, please leave a review either at Amazon or here. Reviews that include things that did and didn’t resonate with you will help gauge my direction as a professional writer, so I would love hearing from you.

Since my family cannot leave reviews, I’m happy to report that they seem to like the story, even though it’s aimed at a young, teenage audience.

As soon as I began writing a new post for next week, I was informed that this blog received 500 likes. To celebrate and let everyone know about this achievement, I did a Happy Dance a few minutes ago, and then wrote this post titled Milestones.

Other milestones today are:

  • I finished creating the cover for my second e-book, Trespassing. Lots going on in the illustration, but when you read the story you’ll see why.
  • I’ve quadruple-checked spelling and sentence structure in the manuscript. All seems up to par, which means I may publish to Kindle sooner than expected.
  • I’ve included a bonus short story at the end of this one.
  • Having fun.

Publication is slated for February, but I may publish next week. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, may your days be blessed.

A Fine Reception

Last week, barely hours after I had Night of the Hellhounds published to Amazon’s Kindle, I received 3 or 4 emails from customers with inquiries about me publishing another story. I am now updating another story and plan making it available in February.

Meanwhile, I am working on adding more to my Ridgewood stories here. That may take longer than I expected now that I seem to have a new purpose in life. Also, my paints and brushes are calling me. Looks like idleness will never be a problem for me. 🙂
