Out with the old, in with the old

I was chatting about What Next? coming out soon and mentioning how difficult the book had been to complete, for a variety of reasons.  Interestingly, the reason I least expected was the difficulty in the continuing characters and sequential storyline. There wasn’t any shortage of enthusiasm to continue the tale and complete the story.  I’m… Read more »

Let’s review

We’ve been here before when What If? went on sale and we’ll no doubt be back when What Now? is released, but it bears repeating, so hang with me…I’ll be brief. Within a few days (if not already), What Next?, the second book in the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures trilogy, will be available online at your… Read more »

Currently, it is the feeling I experience as I wait for the process to complete that makes my book available through the various sales channels…. Read more »

Too much of a tease?

Book Two is published. It will take some time for the distributor and online sales sites to update all their locations, so the book is only on sale at my publisher (Booklocker) and not at all your favorite online retailers.

A death in the family

It’s hump day of “Writing Week” on the JMD blog as we continue to celebrate the upcoming conclusion to writing Book 2 of the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures. Now, read on… When I get involved with creating things, it is with a personal investment of possibly unhealthy proportion.  Whether it was in my art days, my… Read more »

When did this turn into work?

Blog posts were temporarily disabled due to a still unexplained interruption in my access to my website.  I apologize to all you deprived fans out there.  Now, read on… Having a successful couple of weeks recently in making great progress on “What Next?”, I had a moment for some introspection to contrast the style and… Read more »

Good things come in two’s

This was going to be the start of another “themed” week, but I’m going to take a small detour and set that up for next week. The premise was going to be on my “quirks”, be they personality or otherwise.  The thought I had behind that was based on the excellent progress I have been… Read more »
