"Splintered Sacrifice" to be Published

Long Story Short has accepted another speculative fiction story that I wrote, this one will be published in their November issue. I'm very pleased to be gaining more fiction credits. Once I am finished working full time at the factory job I've been doing for the past 4-1/2 months, I am planning to focus on writing again. But, in the mean time dear readers, you will enjoy this story about a tree who makes its ultimate sacrifice.

Website Content

Slowly the content for my upcoming website is coming together. Check out the illustration below of the gentleman mouse from my first Trapped in Imagination story. The website will include this illustration (in color, though) along with the story Trapped in Imagination for pleasurable reading. There are four illustrations so far like this, but not of mice. But I am saving the revealing of those for website publishing day!

Star Wars: Clone Wars

Rumors of proposed Star Wars television series have circulated for the past several years. Stars Wars: Clone Wars introduces viewers to a new level of digital animation. From what I could tell, this film (which serves as a pilot episode for the upcoming TV series) plays off of the ideas given in the Anime-styled Clone Wars series.
I really enjoyed the new movie. Besides being surprisingly humorous, this film packs an interesting story and I recognized some of the character voices from Star Wars computer games. It was well done (I thought) and I'm hearing a lot of positive feedback from other viewers.
Now I am hoping that the rumors of a live-action television series set between episodes III and IV are true.

Kirk DouPonce, Book Cover Design

The process of starting my own book publishing company is involved and a bit slow. Part of the reason is that I am outsourcing for most services in order to have everything done professionally for the first novel before its release in Spring '09.

I'm pleased to announce that Kirk DouPonce of DogEaredDesign is working on the cover for Swords of the Six. Kirk has done work for Random House and Simon & Schuster and has a host of other professional book covers to his credit. The book cover will be completed in four weeks. If you would like to check out Kirk's past work, visit his website:

Also, Amber Hill has agreed to do spot illustrations to be used as chapter headings. Each illustration will be unique to the chapter it graces. This adds considerable expense to the publishing process . . . and time . . . but the end result will be worth it.


"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
