I had an iTunes gift card in my stocking as well as a small stack of BluRays under the tree, so my Christmas was a good one. The holidays were also good because I am on vacation and don't go back to the day job until January 5th. In addition, I had no writing projects and did nothing but sit back and enjoy them. My current work in progress is in the able hands of my wonderful editor - unlike when I was actually writing the thing. I wrote that first draft over four months Nov. I finished my 3rd draft in early December, spoke to the three beta readers all were very pleased and sent it off.
Since then, I have simply been enjoying the season and hanging out with family. This time of year media outlets typically spend a lot of time looking back at the year that was. In terms of writing I now have three novels self-published. The reviews have been very good and I can't complain. My latest novel - Seeing Ghosts - seems to have become everyone's favorite. That makes me very pleased. That book has everything in it that moves me. It's dark, haunting and very sweet.
The only problem has been the chorus of readers who have told me they would love more of that story. Sadly, the book makes a perfect circle, with a lovely red bow on it, and milking it for another book seems wrong to me. Since my stories take place where I live, I have spent the bulk of my free time focusing on reaching that built-in demographic.

I have my books in a local store, and have attended every event in town, doing my level best to get the word out. It's been working, but there's still more work ahead in That is why I have titled this post: I will publish my 4th novel this year, the third book in my crossover vampire series. Although I assume I will begin writing the next thing at some point, my focus will be to market the books I already have.
I really hope to see them begin to pay for themselves. We all do, right? I wish you you the very best in I hope I encourage you the way you have encouraged me to keep pushing forward. I greeted many of you bloggers and writers before Christmas because I miss you all. If you did not hear from me, drop me a line here or on one of the other social networks and say hello. If not for you guys I might have quit this a long time ago.
It isn't easy, is it? Not while our books float in a virtual sea of others out there. The next time you hear from me you should see the blitz begin for my latest novel. There will be a cover release; blurbs, teasers and announcements - although I have not exactly been secretive when it comes to what's coming for our hero Nathaniel and his extended family.
There will be other announcements, too. In the meantime, Happy New Year! Sunday, November 30, An Army of Vampires. Season's Greetings, Fire Enthusiasts. I hope the season finds you well, and well taken care of. I'm still working crazy hours for the most part, although not nearly as bad as in times past. As I pen this post, I am enjoying the last of my Thanksgiving break: I'm already looking forward to taking two weeks off at Christmas In between everything, I have been hard at work on my latest work in progress.
I'm working toward finishing draft three of Dance on Fire 3. You may have already seen the title as well as the cover. I'm not actively promoting it yet, but haven't exactly been secretive about it, either. I'm aiming for a very early release, and then hope to spend the year promoting it as well as all of my novels.

I don't have any plans to start writing the next thing, but we'll see. I say that because has been my best year so far. I'm still working on making a dent into the on-line markets, but in the mean time have been doing really well at home. I live in a small town and have had many opportunities for events.
Considering I have set my novels either here in town or in the general area, I feel I have a built-in demographic that I need to continue to focus on. That's what I have been doing and it seems to be paying off so far. So, while I'm hard at work on the new book, I've got a very short excerpt for you. In Dance on Fire , we met the vampire Nathaniel.
He saved a family from the notorious vampire Vincent, but somehow that family may have saved him. Believing himself to be forever excluded by the kingdom of God, the Christian wife and mother he meets is not convinced. The result is the vampire begins an incredible journey of self-discovery as he seeks whether God may have a use for him.
In Dance on Fire: Flash Point , we find Nathaniel living among monks in the mountains of Oregon. God has not spoken to him, but Nathaniel continues to seek his face in the hopes that he will. When five vampires descend upon his extended family, seeking a terrible revenge, Nathaniel races to save them before it's too late. In the novel, we find that the devil himself is alive and well, and none too pleased that one of his creations is seeking God.
In the next chapter, we find Satan has been plotting to end Nathaniel once and for all. He has set the trap and planned his scheme perfectly. He need only to flip the switch. And flip it he does. In the following excerpt, a new vampire visits Nathaniel. Is she friend or foe? We must wait and see. She shows up at the monastery with advanced warning Nathaniel stared at Marie, but said nothing. Marie, for her part stared back, and seemed to wait for him.
I have only come with attendants, but vampires are indeed on their way here. Nathaniel sighed and looked off into the distance. A shade that once pulled would reveal an army sent to utterly destroy everything that he considered good. Forgive me, but I think you do know. You are under no obligation to tell me, but I pray you will. What have I done? What have these men behind me done?

I am haunted by the smell of the dead. Not a day goes by that I do not recall burying my brothers. Marie seemed to hold her tongue. And why have you come to warn me? Nathaniel waited, but although he thought he had a great many questions to ask of her, none seemed to come save one. So there you have it. I'm going to get back to work, so I can get this thing released.
