Outsourcing One of My Novels

Ever since I first conceived of the Remnant series, I always had a particular volume in mind that I would never write myself. It was a hypothetical novel, which I had actually fully outlined. This novel would explain exactly what caused the collapse of America. Its characters would be (fictional) members of the US government … Continue reading Outsourcing One of My Novels

“Relics” Trailer

I'm currently on hiatus, but I couldn't resist doing this... Ever notice books don’t get trailers like movies? Well, some do, but it’s hardly common.

They are meant to give people new perspective on life, and that will be true even when I start writing science fiction and fantasy. My books are … Continue reading Deeper Meanings In My Books

It's giving them things to notice or understand better that they wouldn't have gotten the first time around. With every one of my novels, I have tried, and will always try, to do … Continue reading Rewarding Readers
