Kickstarter Update — Daygar Legacy Titles + Supplements

daygar legacy coming soonNot exactly big news, but important none-the-less. I have mapped out the names of my first five novels. These are subject to change, but help me know the direction I am going and makes it a bit more real. This whole thing is real for me, but with writing, things can always become more real when you are first starting out.

I won’t be listing what they are about, as these novels will be between 30 – 100 pages, and won’t have a lot of lot of description that wouldn’t ruin the story for you. However, based on some of the titles, you will be able to gleam some story off of it.

Interview – David Lee Summers

DLS-Author-Photo-pngI had the privilege to interview David Lee Summers. I met him at Phoenix Comicon and asked for his help in promoting my Kickstarter and since then have emailed each other several times. He is one of many writers I respect and look up to, hoping to one day match his level of success.

David has broke the mold of traditional writers by writing outside his genre and being quite successful at it. He is known for his Vampire tales and is currently doing a Steampunk western-era story. Join me in welcoming David and hearing the great advice he has to offer.

Daygar Legacy – Chapter 1 Part 1

daygar legacy coming soonAt long last, the first part of Chapter 1 is available for view. This has been 4 years in the making. The purpose of this is to show those who support my Kickstarter campaign what they are investing in. Admittedly, it is with mistakes. It is only a first draft and could use the hand of a professional. However, I am very proud of how it came together and this is just but a taste of what the rest of the novel will be like.

The first book is called Templar Five. This book explores what that means and will set the tone for the rest of the series. A lot happens in this short text. This is to support my Kickstarter campaign so everyone can see what they are investing in.

tools of the tradeOriginal post on 01/28/2014

All writers have their little tricks and shorthand to be better writers, and I am no different.  Some of what I do seems unnecessary while other things I do are almost unheard of from others.  What I do is what works for me and I share this with my followers (both present and future) in hopes that it helps other writers. Today we discuss working together with your competition.

From what I can tell, I’m not the first to do a review on this book and so many have given great reviews. I’m not exactly breaking ground here in this review, but I do talk to a lot of starting writers who need a boost forward and this book is unknown to them. I hope that those writers visit my blog, so this review is for those who need a good starting point. And this book is that starting point. I do this review for anyone who hasn’t read this book because I think it deserves all attention it can get. Read more

mad_cat’s Interviews — Adam Santo

BioMeI recently got the opportunity to interview Adam Santo. I, like many others on Twitter, know him for his retweeting of our posts, but he has a few books on the market worth noting.

This is my first time doing this, so I apologize for some of the technical difficulties, and I hope to improve in the future. The format of this is two fold, I will do an informal video interview, and a formal text interview. Adam was kind enough to do both. So enjoy the video and check out his further responses below.

Tools of the Trade — Walking Away

tools of the tradeBeen awhile since I’ve done a Tools of the Trade article. This one doesn’t sound like a tool, but it is an attitude of your project. As writers, each of our stories are our children and we do what we must to protect our children. We spend a lot of time writing, and editing, and writing some more. We seek perfection to our stories.
