Five Years Earlier…

9 Mar

As I continue to prepare my new book, Freedom/Hate for release (pre-order your copy today!), I have had some old friends stopping by for a visit in my head.

Five years ago this month, I sat down to begin writing Starlette (purchase your copy today!). It’s hard to tell whether I should feel as though it were only yesterday, or if it feels like a hundred years have passed since then. Either way, it was an exciting time for me.

The story began, oddly enough, five years earlier. As I was watching the Oscars red carpet show on television, I couldn’t help but get annoyed with the actors that I was listening to. The way they spoke about their films being “important” irritated me. They acted as though they were saving the world by making movies. Continue reading

This is where I try to decide whether I want to make a comment about the Barnes and Noble system taking forever to get this chapter up, or just smile and move on.

Starlette, Chapter Twelve : “The Red Pages”

There seems to be a slight delay in getting it up on Nook, but that would be a Barnes and Noble issue. I will update when it’s available on Nook.

But wait, there’s more!

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about a guest blog that I wrote for a site called DiscoverLit. The site, which is just now opening to the public, will be a must-know destination for anyone who has an interest in reading (or writing) serial novels or other short form fiction. I’ve been giving my input to them as the writer of a serial and I think that you will really like that they have to offer.

Before I start going into the details, I just want to make it clear that aside from posting my work on the site, as I do on Amazon or Barnes and Noble, I really have no stake in this company. I’ve sent them some input and ideas, but I have not taken any money from them. I’m simply excited by what they offer in terms of support for serials.

For starters, they will have the option to subscribe to a series! I’ve contacted Amazon about this possibility in the past, but they have not put any serial support in place yet. With the subscription, you can get a discount on the overall series, and each chapter/episode will be sent directly to your device upon release. You can purchase back-issues at their normal price. Starlette will be released on a separate schedule there. The material will be the same as on Kindle and Nook, but there will be time to benefit from the subscription option before the end of the series, rather than dumping the whole series out at once and not allowing readers to share those benefits.

The site will also allow authors to offer discounts and free chapters. I will be offering the first three chapters of Starlette for free, which is something that I can’t do on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

If you’re a reader of serialized fiction, this should appeal to you. Having something show up on your Kindle is a lot easier than having to remember to go back and seek out each chapter when they’re released.

If you’re a writer who has stayed away from writing a serial because of the limitations that some other sites have, check out DiscoverLit. Once they’re at full speed, I think they’ll be a great asset to the indie publishing community.


I might sound like an infomercial salesman here, but considering the less than friendly response I have gotten from certain sites who have no love for serials, I think this could be pretty awesome. Check it out and let me know what you think.

We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled Programming…

30 Oct

Jury duty… It happens to the best of us. I’ve been serving for a week now, and it could go on for a while longer. So my ramblings about TV shows and movies might be put on hold for a bit, but I do plan on getting back to them.

Chapter Nine of Starlette will be available on schedule, however my updates to the blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. might be a little bit delayed. So if you’re on the edge of your seat, just waiting for the next chapter, go ahead and check Amazon or Barnes and Noble on Wednesday. I will sound the alerts as soon as possible.
