Bit by Bit

It is 2:30 in the morning and I'm staring at the computer screen thinking about everything that is and needs to come together before Swords of the Six goes to print. Becky Miller sent the first manuscript edits. She is doing a wonderful job . . . and by wonderful I mean that she has left me with more work to do. I'm in the process of ripping apart my prelude. I'm not starting over, but I am reimagining it as a better hook to draw my audience into the story.

I thought of a good opening scene while packing chips into boxes tonight at work. Now I have to buckle myself to the chair and type out the story that comes to me.

My eyes are tired so I'll (as my grandfather loves to say) "hit the hay!" Tomorrow I should receive the initial spot illustrations from Amber Hill. Yes, everything is falling into place bit by bit . . . At last. (:

Sometimes it helps having mindless work as your mind has time to wander and mentally make plans. The trick is remembering it all when you get home!



"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.
