December/January Update

Hello, Everyone!

Once again, many apologies for the delay in updating the blog. Pandemic and family related issues made some things more difficult than others, and I apologize for not keeping you all updated here as I have in other social medias. Thank you so much for sticking with me 🙂

As mentioned previously in other places, I have been accepted as a guest to JordanCon 2023! I couldn’t be more excited. This will be my second year attending. I look forward to those of you attending in April!

Book 2 in the Apollo Grant series, Taken for Granted releases in four days on Friday, January 13th. You can get your copy by clicking here. Now that Apollo Grant has been approved by its publisher to go to series, you’ll notice Book 1 also has a new shiny cover to match. You can check both titles out on Amazon.

Apollo Grant 3 – tentatively titled Grant no Quarter is still in the initial stages of being drafted.

Until Death is still making the rounds with my beta readers. Once I get it back and process the preliminary developmental edits, it’ll be ready to shop around. Its a love story akin to “Supernatural meets The Sixth Sense.”

I have some other conventions lined up that I am applying for, and as soon as I have info on those, I will let you all know.

Until next time,

November Update – Apollo Grant Series & JordanCon2023

Good News everyone!

Book Two of the Apollo Grant series is nearing completion! Final cover art has been approved, and pre-orders for a December release should be coming soon.

I’ve already started Book Three, tentatively titled “Grant No Quarter”, please look forward to information as that it progresses!

My schedule for 2023 is currently shaping up to be a full one. Most importantly, I’ll be in Atlanta in April for my second year appearance at JordanCon 2023! I had such a great time in 2022, and I am looking forward to meeting all of you there.

I have an event this weekend at the Wintertime Bliss event in Rock Hill, SC, and another one in Concord, NC at the Charlotte Comic-Con in December.

Soon, I’ll be posting some updates on other projects in the works, including updates on Until Death, and some short stories that are in production.

Until next time,

September Update

Hello Everyone!

I know it’s been a while. Many apologizes for not posting anything sooner.

ConCarolinas this year was a blast. I was provided with several networking opportunities, and sold a lot of books for both myself and my publisher, Mocha Memoirs Press. Most importantly, I was able to meet many of you face to face. Without you guys, my readers, none of what I do now as a writer would be possible.

Seriously, thank you 🙂

I know many of you have asked “When is the next Apollo Grant book coming out? When will book one be on audio?”

AG Book 2, titled “Taken for Granted”, has gone through two rounds of developmental edits. is currently sitting on my publisher’s desk. Once I have a release date set, I will let all of you know. As far as the audiobook for Book 1…there were some post recording delays, that should be resolved shortly, the recording itself is finished, we are just waiting.

Other projects have gotten delayed as a result of me having to make a slightly unexpected alteration to my living situation, but now that that’s been resolved, I can get back to finishing a few things currently on my plate. The rough draft of “Until Death” is few chapters away from being finished, and the outline for Apollo Grant 3 is currently in progress.

More updates will be coming soon, so please look forward to it.

Prepping for ConCarolinas 2022

While I will not be a guest at this year’s ConCarolinas, I will be in attendance.

You can find me at the Mocha Memoirs Press table, where I will be selling copies of Apollo Grant, as well as several other awesome titles put out by my publisher. Please come check us out!

As I wait for this weekend to arrive, I’ve been busy at work with a couple of projects I’ve mentioned to some of you already. Edits are almost done on the current short story I’m submitting to Writers of the Future, and I just got revision notes on Taken for Granted, so I’ll be focusing on getting those completed over the next couple of weeks.

Who will I see at the convention this weekend? I look forward to meeting all of you!

Post JordanCon Update!

JordanCon 2022 was a blast! I had a great time meet so many new readers, as well as networking with many of my fellow authors.

It is an experience I hope very much to repeat for next year. The con staff was amazing, and the panels I was on were fun and engaging.

Pro tip: If you are looking to get anything done in advancing yourself professionally as a writer, the hotel bar is where it is at. This is where all the business happens.

Let’s just say there are many more Apollo Grant titles coming your way in the future. AG2 (Taken for Granted) is currently in the hand of my publisher, and AG3 (Grant No Quarter) is currently in the outline stages.

Just so everyone in the loop, things have been rather hectic personally, which I’ll delve into (hopefully) in another blog post. With that being said, my current commitment to you, my readers, is to update here at least once a week.

Stay safe out there, and until next time.

January Update

Hey everyone!

I know an update is long overdue, but just wanted to reach out and let you know how things are going.

Two weeks ago, I had a bit of a hospital adventure when I experienced some chest pain. I’m okay, found out it was a blood pressure spike and my heart is still healthy. Thankfully, I don’t need to be on any medications, but my doctor did prescribe me a low-carb diet. Things could have been much worse if I let the pain go unchecked, but it did serve to remind me that chest pain is nothing to play with and should be checked out immediately when felt.

Apollo Grant is still doing extremely well, and volume two, tentatively titled Taken for Granted, is currently going through beta reader critiques. I hope to have it submitted to the publisher next month. More details to be provided once I have them.

Until Death is about 25% drafted. A supernatural ghost story of mystery, romance, and intrigue, I hope to have it done in the next couple of months, and ready for 1st beta reads in March.

JordanCon 2022 is in April, and I couldn’t be more excited as I prepare for it. I’m looking forward to being a guest at the event, and meeting many of you there.

December Update

I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays!

Apologies for the lack of posts in November, it’s been an extremely busy time of year, both on the writing and in the personal life front.

In other news, I’m happy to announce that I’ve been accepted as a Featured Guest at JordanCon 2022! More details to come soon, but I hope to see many of you there!

I’ve got a few projects actively going on right now. Since Apollo Grant is on the market, there has been a strong push to get the next book in the series ready and off to the publisher. The manuscript is currently making its rounds with my beta readers, so I hope to have it submitted in soon.

Also, Prelude has gone through two chapters of first round revisions, so only 12 more chapters to go on that step.

Until Death is about 12%done, and I’m currently working on chapter 5, I’m hoping to have the first arc of the story done by the end of January.

Other projects listed on the Works in Progress page are being looked at and worked on as time permits. I haven’t forgotten about them, and will of course be posting updates when anything major happens with those works.
