Well, it's been awhile since I've blogged and awhile since I've had anything new to report. I'm glad to say, that I finally decided to put "Blood Rain" on sale on amazon as an e-book. As those following this blog know, I started this book series a long time ago and it's been though a great deal of editing and reworking over the years. I decided a few days ago, it's finally ready for the public eye. If this goes well, I'll also be selling "Blood Moon" and "Blood God," thus putting the entire trilogy up on amazon. I hope it works out.
It's been very exiting to finally be publishing something. Even if it's something I'm getting off the ground myself, I'm very happy that people will finally have the opportunity to read my books. Even though I wrote "Blood Rain" long ago, I feel like it actually withstood the test of time and got better due to all of my editing instead of getting worse. I don't intend to let anyone see many of my earliest books, but I enjoyed writing "Blood Rain," so I'm glad it was different. I just hope it's good enough for those kind enough to read it.
Many thanks to Joey for the cover art. It's beautiful. He was very kind to work on it for me given that he doesn't have very much time right now, himself. (Good luck at Comic Con, man. I'm very happy for you. Wish I could be there to see you speak.) Also, many thanks to those of you who have read it and critiqued it for me. I took a lot of suggestions on this story and it's better for it.
In other writing news, I'm still working on the young reader horror series. I've sent it to several agents now and am basically waiting to hear something. I really have enjoyed working on the series and am up to book four. Wish me luck. If I don't have any luck finding an agent with this series, I'm definitely going to publish it somehow. I just feel it would do better as a softcover than an e-book, but we'll see. Also, I still feel strongly that horror, especially young reader, is making a comeback right now. There is a definite lack of it in the stores, and I want to be able to help fill that gap.
Well, I'll keep you posted on any new developments or ideas I have. Thank you to everyone who bought my book, and thank you for those who decide to critique it. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. There might be a few more e-books in the future, if nothing more than short story compilations. I want some of my homeless stories to at least be seen. Knowing that these are finally out there warms my heart.
Thank you for reading.
