Store Coming Soon

Good news everyone! On February 12, I will launch an online store for my website. What are some things I’ll sale through this online store? I will have autographed copies of my paperback books for sale. They will be cheaper than buying them from Amazon and with my signature. With shipping, the costs may come out the same. Shoppers will also have the ability to purchase custom written poems and haikus. These custom poems can be about anything one desires; funny, romantic, raunchy, contemplative, etc. I’ll also have poetry prints. These are 11×17 posters with one of my poems for one to hang in their living room or wherever.

The main product I am most excited about is the t-shirts with titles of some of my poems. Each shirt is related to one of the poems in my most recent collection of poetry titled “Men Are Garbage.” Yes, one of the shirts says, “Men Are Garbage.” You’re welcome ladies. At launch, the shirts will be approximately $30 only because I don’t have any in stock and will have to order them to be made for every purchase. Once I can buy many in bulk, the price will drop. Shipping costs will remain the same. 

I’m hoping with the sale of books on Amazon and with sales from this new online store, I can make enough money to devote more time to my writing without having to work multiple jobs just to pay the rent. As always, I appreciate those of you who have downloaded my works and I will continue to ask for honest reviews. If you hated it, say so. If you loved it, say so. If you felt indifferent, say so. The more honest the better. Be sure to check out my published works and keep an eye out for more updates as the shop launch comes closed.

The Tommy Gun: A Novella

On January 22, my first full length work of fiction becomes available to the public. The Tommy Gun is the longest story I have written to date and I’m excited to hear what others think. Available in both eBook and Paperback, however, only the eBook is available for pre-order on Amazon. You can pre-order now on the Amazon Page or you can wait until the release. The paperback might take a couple more days before it’s seen online. I will have signed physical copies for sale after a couple weeks. So, what’s the novella about?

Government corruption. Hate speeches. A country divided. The world Brent White knew is crumbling. He gets his call to action when a friend goes missing. He trains himself to become a weapon against the new dictatorship. He fights through criminals and concentration camps to find his friend and save lives. He becomes a guardian for the persecuted. To end the suffering, he must stop one person. The politician turned dictator. Ronald Teagun. The Tommy Gun.

The story is told from two different point of views. One is from Brent White’s perspective and the other is from Ronald Teagun’s perspective. Each chapter of the book alternates between the two characters and a couple chapters have both characters trading off during the action. I wrote this story during the 2017 NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). The eBook is $2.99, and the paperback is $9.99. Reviews are requested and humbly appreciated.

I haven’t decided but I may have shirts and stickers with the cover logo available. I guess let me know if you want something like that. My writer shop should be ready to launch within the next month. My goal is to have it finished by February 12. Autographed copies of books, shirts, and requests for custom poetry will fill the store and perhaps other things. So, please tell your friends, write a review on Amazon or Facebook or Goodreads. And I hope you enjoy the novella.

New Books Coming 2019

After many hours (and tears), I have several stories finished. I’m sure I could edit even more, but I’ve decided its time to move on and leave them as they are. Are they publishing worthy? The writing is better than most books out on the shelves, but I’m not well known so no one wants to offer me the chance. No worries, I’ll keep writing until I’m dead. I have one more story I want to go over one more time and then all I have are stories that I need to finish writing. I’ve been putting them off to finish editing. A vicious cycle.

Coming January 22, 2019, I’m publishing my first novella, “The Tommy Gun.” I wrote this in November 2017 for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and was pleased with my success at writing so much. Does that mean the story is great? You be the judge. Either way, it’s finished, and I can move on to writing my first novel. My novella is just under 50,000 and I want my novel to be around 85,000 to 90,000 words. Wish me luck. I’m adjusting small formatting issues with the eBook and Paperback, but once that’s all finished, I’ll post more details about “The Tommy Gun.”

Coming April 23, 2019, I’m publishing the next installment of my Dollar Tales eBook series. “Dollar Tales from the Morbid Museum: Creatures” will include five short stories including my take on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, except they’re not teenagers anymore. Some call this Fan-Fiction, I call it fiction. One of the stories is a continuation of Siris Grim Letters, the curator of the Morbid Museum. This eBook series is building up to the full short story collection “The Morbid Museum” which part of me hopes to finish by next October. I have three stories to finish and edit.

Also, my goal is to have a couple more stories published through online magazines before publishing a paperback of the full collection. I have published three stories online, you can find links to them in the sidebar, and hope to have more published soon. I have another flash fiction story that was published but it will not be included in this collection. I am also working on the next collection of poetry but as yet do not have a publication date. I also intend to have a few poems published in magazines before the next collection is published.

I have this ambitious project of analyzing horror fiction, specifically supernatural fiction and I don’t feel I have to time to focus on it the way I should. For now, I’ll use this as a list of things to read and watch and cross things off my list as I go with maybe a short summary or writeup of my thoughts. That will at least get me started and help me keep going. I can do that with many of the titles on my large list, I just have little motivation to do anything. C’est la vie!
