Finally, Syphon has been uploaded and launched on KDP

It's been nearly 1 1/2 years from the start of this project until now. What most people don't know is that I actually started this book as a way to deal with my Mom's death. She passed in October 2014, and I started this book durning NaNoWriMo less than a ...

On a different note, I decided to take the month of February to do business stuff

February 6, 2016 by Leave a comment

So here's the thing. I've pushed back the release/launch date of Syphon nearly two months now. While the reasons for it were valid (i.e. doing formatting work for other clients, etc.), it really started taking away from the reason why I learned how to do book formatting correctly and start ...

January 15, 2016 by Leave a comment

Due to formatting work from other clients, I got behind on my revisions for Syphon. Hopefully I'll get the chance to do more revisions this weekend and get it that much closer to being released.

Based off beta-reader reviews, only the first half of the book needed further revisions, which is what ...

December 7, 2015 by Leave a comment

Just when I get into the final stretch, my golfer's elbow strikes. Not that I play golf or anything, but due to how much time I spend at a computer, coupled with how many years I've been doing it, all add up to an inflamed tendon in my elbow/forearm that's ...

December 6, 2015 by Leave a comment

Syphon is nearly here. My beta readers have been plugging away, looking for errors, and they're nearly done. I've also been working on the formatting for the trade paperback edition as well, so I'm hoping to have it sent off to the printers within the next few days as well. ...
