A Special Date Made More Special, Update and...Cats??

Special Date Made More Special

The Book of Prophecy: Book 1 in The Chronicles of Elementary. Cover Reveal!!!

Some of what I’m about to say won’t make much sense to most people, but it needs to be recorded. 16-2-14 is an important day and made more so by becoming the day my book cover was revealed to the world. It was a lovely, selfless gift to be revealed on that day and I’m thankful that the 16-2-14 has two reasons to be memorable.

As for the book cover I absolutely love it. The artist employed by the Kristell-Ink (, Ken Dawson (, brought my ideas to life and I’m thankful for all the hard work he put in to the cover for The Book of Prophecy. I really feel this cover stands out and will draw people to it, but I guess only time will tell. A publication date has also been given and this is 01-8-14. Does anyone have a time machine so we can skip to that date already :).


Nurture Fails, Nature Remains: Book 2 in The Chronicles of Elementary. Update.

Book 2 is now 151,000 words and I have one chapter and an epilogue left to do. Once that’s done it will be going back and adding the dates. This will be tedious, but I like having the dates and I think it adds a little realism to the story. After the dates are done there are 19, ‘things to add or check,’ and after this a chapter by chapter read, focusing on some world building, will take place. Then a final read all the way through and hopefully it will be done and ready to show to a few people to get feedback. All of this may take another month or two, but that's good as it keeps me busy. It has taken a lot longer than I thought to do this re-write but I’m so happy with how book 2 will be when it’s done.  


A few weeks ago I was asked to do a flash fiction of 500 words for an anthology called, ‘Felinity.’ The theme was a sci-fi or fantasy story that had some link to cats. After an hour I had constructed a piece called, ‘The Caterpillar of Catastrophe and The Catatonically Drunk Cat.’ It was very fun to write this story and for once not be overly serious. I believe Felinity is currently being formatted, but the collection will be on sale shortly.
