Blood Sword Release Date: November 1st!

Gryphonwood Press has set the official release date for Blood Sword, the second novel in the First Civilization's Legacy series, for November 1, 2011.

Although a sequel to Flank Hawk (with many characters returning to play a part), Blood Sword is written to stand alone so that readers new to the series can jump right in with the latest release.

I'll post more news and details about the novel and cover art as it becomes available.

Me in my wife's Camaro ready for the Parade

My Wife Waving to the Crowd
 The funniest comment heard during the parade? A teen shouting: "Hey, what's a car like that doing in St. Paris?"

Shelby County Applefest 2011

I, along with about a dozen other authors, will be attending the Applefest in Sidney, Ohio on September 10th from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm.

We'll be located in the Court House to talk with readers and sign copies of our works. Signs will be placed around the festival to direct folks our way.

If you're in the area, hope to see you there.

The Wizard of Oz: How it Should Have Ended

As a writer, one needs to be aware that what logically should happen...instead of forcing the plot in a 'desired' direction. Readers might notice.

For example...

Still, the munchkin's bid for offing the witch might have failed. Then he'd have been in big trouble.

Nevertheless, the plot's alternate direction certainly has a ripple effect.
