large-syndicate-coverIt’s my birthday and I thought I’d do something special to celebrate it. So in honour of that, and the fact that I just put out a book filled with great stories for this time of year, I made a Smashwords coupon that will be good until November 1!

With eleven short stories about the Twisted Eden Sector, there is something for everyone this Halloween season.

Avaliable From:

The Terror Twins were finally caught and Gabe was ready to face them. They might have had a file two inches thick, but they were just a couple of kids. He’d dealt with far worse. He could handle these two.

Or so he thought.

Backup Plan

With my site going down for the past… over two weeks now, I think it’s a good time to talk about backup plans for when my site goes down.

I didn’t have a backup plan in place when this all happened. I thought it would be back up in no time, went back to work on my writing and hoped it would all be back to normal soon. I figured this was a nice break from writing blog posts so I could just focus on getting the book done. I was so close and I didn’t have time for a blog right now, anyway! The stories were more important, so the site didn’t need to be up.

Except that I linked everyone back to the site. Content or no, I needed a working link to somewhere so that people could still find my books when they clicked on it. A link that doesn’t work, I know full well as a web developer, is a poor first impression.

And then I realized I had a book that was due out in about a week. ((Terror Twins. I’ll let you know more about it in the next post!))

With that realization, I scrambled, looking for alternatives and trying to figure out what else I could do. Somewhere that I could link to that worked. At that point, I thought that maybe not too many people were clicking the link anyway, so maybe no one would have noticed.

I changed it everywhere to link to Facebook. Apparently a lot of people click on that profile link.

I tried a lot of things and failed at a lot of things in doing so. I also somehow ended up with a Tumblr. After all that, I finally remembered the wordpress.com site I started out on in the first place and, at last, the plan fell into place. Well, mostly into place. I’ll need to maintain this site a lot more in the future, just in case anything else should happen.

Here’s hoping the actual site comes back soon! In the meantime, it’s good to have a back up.

Mark had found her, but Trista wasn’t concerned. She’d convinced herself that the green glow coming off of him and the threats that he would get her back were all in her head. While she’s out with her new beau, she keeps seeing a strange green glow out of the corner of her eye and she can’t help but feel like she’s being followed.

Comfort Zone

Comfort-Zone4

I’m currently working on extra shorts that will appear in a collected edition before they are released as singles. ((The singles come out as I can afford the covers, so it takes some time to get them out.)) ((For those interested, I’m planning to release the collected some time early October!)) In this, there are a few stories that fall well outside of my normal comfort range when it comes to writing. These are shorts where there are elements, themes or events that I have no comfort level in writing them. [Read More]

The Self Publishing Checklist

It occurred to me as I was putting up the last book that I really need to organize this putting out books process. I want to spend less time working on getting the book out so I can get back to writing sooner. Starting with book, I’ve compiled a checklist that I can follow, split into parts, that will hopefully make the process a little easier. [Read More]

On The Importance of Timelines

For those of you who don’t know, I am currently working on a series called Tales from the Twisted Eden Sector. ((The first book is out, so you should probably check that out.)) It’s a series of short stories that are being released in a non-linear fashion and instead as the stories fit together or as I generally feel like writing them. This, on my part, has meant a damn lot of planning to keep the events of the books straight with one another. [more]
