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.

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).

Good thing, too, because the open archway I… Read More »Coming Soon – The Royal Wizard
