Thinking Michael Store
The site now has a Store, where I will sell images, and samples of my released and unreleased books. Most items can be purchased directly from the site. Hopefully in the future, other artists’ works as well. I am currently in talks with a painter to sell her works through the site as well.
My books will no longer have release dates. This is to prevent myself from getting lazy with my writing, because I generally don’t need a long time to complete a work. Now they will be released as soon as they are complete.

In December 2018, I will release a compilation volume (anthology) of the first two Remnant novels. They will not be the regular versions of the novels, but revised. Best of all, the anthology will have a preview of the third novel, Relics, with the official cover art.

Minor news today. I’ve decided to change the name of my upcoming autobiographical book from “The Debate” to “Atheist Miracles.” Both titles are fitting, but the new title is slightly more fitting.

While I am happy to see my blog grow since I began posting daily, and consistently getting views, the numbers of each individual post remain negligible. I love writing, and since I’ve been blogging for 13 years (only 2 years on this site), it’s obvious I will always want to blog in some way, but I don’t think it’s worth daily commitment. I’d rather work on my other art and working on collaborative projects. So, I’ve decided not to post daily, but instead every Sunday at 10am Pacific Time. At least this way, articles will be longer and more in-depth. I will occasionally post ‘shorts’ whenever I feel like saying something real quick, but don’t count on too many of those.

Stay tuned for the first podcast, which will be featured on my YouTube channel. It will feature my friend, and perhaps later, my brother David. We will be discussing my first novel, Remnant.
I will soon be releasing an episodic series called Matriarchs. It is about women who take over all organized crime in their city. Despite being ruthless mob bosses, these women are admired by the people of the city. The series will be a prequel to my novel Remnant. For those of you who have read Remnant, you are already familiar with the characters this series will be about, and now you will be able to see their complete backstory.
Once the series begins, you will be able to read each episode on my Wattpad page.
The series will be released like episodes of a TV show, except there won’t be ‘seasons,’ there will only be, well, episodes. When the series is complete, I will publish it as a single volume. Just note that the series won’t have a new episode in specific timeframes. It won’t be every week or every month, it will simply be when I get around to releasing the next one, which could be a matter of days or a matter of several months. Each episode will be its own contained story, so that my audience doesn’t feel like it’s complete. You can enjoy each story as its own story (while they’re all still part of a larger story).
