UNQUIET Update – September 29

Here is what I should be doing:

Sowing grass seed where a blow-up pool killed the grass in my backyard.
Cutting weeds out of the bushes against my house.
Vacuuming the finished section of the basement.
Clearing clutter out of my house.
Washing my car.

Here is what I’m actually doing on this cool early Fall day:

Sitting in my sunroom in my house slippers writing a story.

Penned Con, Cover Update, Dragons

In a little over a week I’ll be signing books at Penned Con 2018 in St. Louis. This is a really down-to-earth con with two giant rooms packed with authors and readers. You can talk books with real people for two days straight! There’s also a theme dinner, auctions, games, and drawings. Tons of fun. Check out the details here, and come!


 


 
I haven’t read any Seriously Good Books lately but ohmigosh do I have a movie to recommend to you.

I Am Dragon
Amazon | IMDb

I watched it on Amazon Prime but you might find it elsewhere.

It’s Russian, and in Russian, so you’ll get English subtitles but the language is beautiful and can’t be missed. I won’t tell you anything else about it other than it’s an old-fashioned fairy tale that’s darkly romantic, with great costumes and scenery, good acting, and a great love story. Just watch it.
 


 
Did you notice THE ALIGNMENT had a little update to its cover? As much as I loved the original, I think I might love this one even more…

 

UNQUIET Update – August 19

Fall has been in the air these last few mornings and it’s pure magic. It’s starting to feel like book publishing time. Now all I need to do is finish the darn thing. So, what’s new? More words added. Body count increasing. Haven’t hit the climax yet but should be there soon. It’s late now but I’m going to try for 500-1,000 words before I call it a day…

UNQUIET Update – July 3

Another strong month of progress here. I believe we’ve passed the midpoint. Right now I’m in the process of piling as much stress on this hero and heroine as I possibly can. I need to see what happens when they break. And then I need to break them more. Hopefully they won’t take it out on each other.

On second thought… I kind of hope they do. ;)
