A Time to Die, The Next 1000 Miles, Upcoming

Save Up Your Pennies!

Good afternoon, let’s jump right into it!

Next Friday, A Time to Die will be going to the editor. From there, it shouldn’t take longer than a couple of weeks before I have my final draft back. From that point, it’ll jump right into the lap of a formatting artist and finally, a revised full cover piece from my cover artist to wrap it all up.

What’s that mean for you?

Well, if all goes according to plan, there will be a final installment of the Legend of Carter Gabel series in your hands in less than a month!!

I will of course keep you more up to date as the weeks progress along this last slide into home base. But, as we know, occasional downfalls occur. And with them, things could get hinky.

Hinky = Effed Up, without making grandmothers cringe.

What will happen from there? I can only hope good things. I have a lot of pots on the stove cooking, in terms of new reading. I need everyone’s help in making sure I can serve them up though. If I go Indie, that’ll be a long time to wait at the pace I’ve set. But, the more and more people’s hands my book gets into, the better chance I have of delivering stories.

Sooooooo, share your thoughts out there with a review if you haven’t already! Or tell a friend looking for a good book. Or if you didn’t like it, donate your copy to a teen group like Boys Club or Girls Inc or your local library.

Indies thrive off of word of mouth and if we get enough help, you can be one of those people saying, I knew him when… I remember chatting with him once…. or I actually got to meet them before the movie ever got made! How cool will you be?

Sorry, no one’s as cool as BW

Back From Hibernation

So, it’s been months since I posted. I’d like to say I was backpacking or researching or been hammering out novels one after another. No, I’ve just been living life and getting caught up with it at every turn. And who wakes up and stretches their arms out all refreshed?! I’m more like this kid:

cranky-early-morning1

For those of you not familiar with me, I write the Legend of Carter Gabel series. It’s a time-travel YA Sci-Fi novel about a kid who can spontaneously travel back in time but soon finds out that those aren’t his only gifts. I have the first two books out right now <shameless plugs at the bottom>. AND I’m still working on the third. BUT I totally plan on having it cranked out by the fall.

What’s Been Going On?

I have spent the last few months combing back through my books, taking out the unnecessary and shaping up the structure a bit. Overall, I love this story even more now and those I taxed with re-reading it agree it flows so much better.

I have been cranking up the world generator for my next series and even a couple more singular ideas in the wings. I fully plan on starting the writing process as soon as I get Carter out and in the hands of my editor.

On top of that, I’ve helped out a few writer friends with their own work.

What’s Going On Now?

Currently, I help coach a U14 softball team and the season is just wrapping up (Go Adrenaline!). Those twelve young ladies have a lot of my free time and they’re totally worth it. Check out my Instagram at the bottom.

I am looking forward to a YouTube video that will be coming out on Tuesday. I guest appear on the 69th episode of Book Nerd Paradise where I got to read a little bit of my work and there will even be a giveaway for a free copy or two just by commenting! Go check her out and watch for me this next week.

What’s Coming Up?

Soon, I will be diving further into the realm of Carter Gabel and with the end of the series, I will be taxing a few people to help me decide on the ending. #betareaders

I’m on WattPad!! I plan on posting little snipits and stories for the Carter Gabel series and the new one coming out soon. Come join me so I can follow you and your own journey!

Can you say Cross Country Nerds…? Stay tuned!

Oh! And Add My Books!!
