The Royal Wizard Now (FINALLY) Available!

When I finished the first “official” version of The Royal Wizard in 2008, before I thought I had any hope in the world of getting it published, I “pseudo-published” it just for myself. I sent off a copy for an official Copyright, and then I formatted the word document to look just like a real book (without really grasping the concept of the page break yet, so imagine a lot of line breaks being counted off) and created a cover from images I found online and loved. I printed one copy, had it bound at FedEx Kinkos, and placed the 8.5″ x 11″ booklet on my bookshelf among a small handful of first editions, which will probably never see the… Read More »The Royal Wizard Now (FINALLY) Available!

The Royal Wizard Trailer and Release Date

Greetings! Long time no see! I hope your holidays and New Year were a fantastic end to 2012 and beautiful beginning to 2013. I have a lot of news to share. For those who follow me on Facebook, you may have noticed the new book trailers I’ve posted in the last few days. Yes, I started dabbling in a new art form–Windows Movie Maker. And, believe me, it truly is a form of art to get that finicky piece of Microsoft software to do what I want it to… But I am happy to report that in the battle for a put-together book trailer, I am winning! There will be more trailers to come, I hope to have one for… Read More »The Royal Wizard Trailer and Release Date

Read The Beginning of The Royal Wizard

Didn’t get to do all I was hoping to do this weekend, but I did enough that I don’t feel too bad about it. And then I remembered that I promised you guys an excerpt! So since it’s Monday, I’ll keep this short and sweet and without further ado, here is the unedited prologue of The Royal Wizard. Enjoy! =D

Now Show Me Your Angry Face!

New Orleans during Halloween time is nothing short of amazing. One of the best vacations I have ever taken and a lot of what made it great is my friends. See this picture? It is my new author picture. It was taken by my friend Mia, who is as great a photographer as she is director. She didn’t hesitate to growl at me when I moved, or insisted on keeping my glasses on my face. This is probably one of the times I was laughing at the funny noises she made whenever I twitched just as the camera clicked. I also have huge thanks to give to my friend Dacia, a master designer and make up artist for making me… Read More »Now Show Me Your Angry Face!

Coming Soon – The Royal Wizard

When I was about seven or eight years old, I had a dream so vivid it felt like I was really there. I was in a stone chamber with archways and columns separating it into halves. It was empty except for this huge wooden table and torches for light. I paced beneath one archway, back and forth between one side and the other and while I did this, I chanted something to myself (this is how I learn and memorize things in real life, too). On the next pass, though, I closed my eyes and as I was turning around, I opened them just a little to see where I was going. Good thing, too, because the open archway I… Read More »Coming Soon – The Royal Wizard

Blood Debts Release at LSBooks.com TODAY!

It’s here! The day has come and since I am 9 hours ahead of my usual time zone at the moment, I am scheduling this post so that by the time it goes live, Blood Debts will hopefully already be out there. If not, keep checking! In case anyone missed it, Liquid Silver Books has a new storefront here. The old one still works, but this one is much nicer and easier to navigate. For those who prefer Amazon, iTunes or Barnes &Noble, Blood Debts should appear there as well, very soon if not already. As I am writing this, I am sitting out on a balcony with a magnificent view of this country’s tallest mountains. The sun is shining, the… Read More »Blood Debts Release at LSBooks.com TODAY!
