I Review My Own Book

I had a fun idea yesterday: Sit down and review a book that I wrote, pretending as if I had nothing to do with its creation. So, here goes… Continue reading

‘Remnant’ Will Be Re-released July 19, 2017

In 3 months, on the 2-year anniversary of the release of Remnant, the novel will be released again with a live-action cover art of the main character, and some extra material. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Since Relics, the third volume in the series, will be much bigger than its predecessors, it’ll take longer to write than usual, so now is the best time to do this. Continue reading

The Atheist Pocket Book

I thought I would publish this book in January, but it turned out to have not taken very long to make. So, here it is. For just one measly dollar, I have provided my fellow non-theists with a small book explaining the basics of why we don’t believe. It’s not super detailed, and of course when it comes to getting religious people to understand who we are and why we think the way we do, it usually requires tons and tons of explaining, but hopefully this will help us all out down the road.

Find it on Amazon here.

A Father and Daughter Love Story

The first two novels of my Remnant series are about a father and his daughter. One of the ways I pitched the story to myself, years ago before I started writing it, was me asking myself, “Why do all love stories have to be the same? Why do all love stories have to be about romance?” There are more types of love than romantic. Love is the most powerful, and the most defining, feeling that humans feel. It comes in different shapes and sizes. The only kind of love story that I think is truly interesting, and truly worth anyone’s time when it comes to fiction, is not two people falling in love and living happily ever after, it’s the love a parent has for their baby. There are many father and son, mother and daughter stories out there, but I don’t often come across father and daughter stories. The only one I can really think of is the 2005 movie War of the Worlds, but that was more about survival than about the characters. I wanted to do something different. Remnant and Resurrection are about survival, but are more about the characters. Continue reading

Writing Is Just As Hard As Any Other Job

In my experience, it seems most people think that writing is too easy to qualify as ‘work.’ And that is unfortunate, because it seems the only way to prove how wrong these people are, is by having them become a writer themselves.

Writers, whether they are novelists or short story writers, or even just poets, have to abide by a whole list of basic rules. Everyone, including and especially non-writers, hold writers by these standards: Continue reading
