Anyone looking to host an author event?

I figured it couldn't hurt to put this out there, but I am currently scheduling events in local area schools and libraries for the upcoming school year. So, if you're a school librarian or secretary, or English teacher, I encourage you to check out my "author visits" page to get an idea of what I'm offering.

Goodness, but it's been a while!

Hey guys, I know it's been a hot minute since I last wrote anything here. Man, it's been crazy!  For those who've been following my facebook page, you know I've been trying to do a weekly (for the most part) live stream. I'm currently on a cooking and baking kick so if you want to learn how to make something, let me know.

I also quit my day job as a front of house team member at Chick-fil-a. It was fun while it lasted but they kept wanting to give me more and more hours, which meant I couldn't work on what I really wanted to work on, my books and other related projects. So, I left. I'm now working as a substitute school crossing guard, which is a lot less hectic, even if it is less hours.

So, what's going on in the writing world for me? Well, I just updated all of my Tarragon books so they should be a lot more squeaky clean, free from more typos and whatnot. I've also got a hard cover version of Bob The Littlest Dinosaur and Bob and The Color Fairy available for order through Amazon and other online retailers. Hadn't done anything in hard bound before so I'm pretty excited.

I've also been working on turning my Tarragon Trilogy into scripts for an audio drama, which I hope will start releasing by the end of this year. I'm currently in the process of auditioning voices for the different roles, so if you're interested, want to give voice acting a go, by all means, head on over to the audition site and give it a look around. You can find it HERE.

I've also redesigned the logo for my Tarragon Trilogy and wanted to share it with you. So here it is! Still have some bugs to work out and all that but I think it looks pretty fancy, especially the R's.


Outside of that... I'm trying to get over bronchitis, which is fun, let me tell you. Hoping to see everyone on May 11th at the Frisco, Texas Frisco Book Fest, which I will be attending, between 1:00 and 5:00 pm that day. They also have a Frisco StrEats thing going, with food trucks and whatnot, like a block over, so come out and enjoy the food, the music, and find a great new book to read!

School's Starting

I know school has already started for some, and will start soon for others. I admit I'm kind of glad I don't have to worry about that this year. It's the first time in seven years that I haven't, and I admit, it's kind of nice. But for those who do have to worry about it, be it as a teacher or student, I wish you luck.

I know I should apologize for not being overly communicative the last few months. It's been one hectic thing after another as we tried to move into our new semi-permanent home. (Hoping to stay put for a couple good years, but we'll see what happens.) And I'm only now just unearthing everything after the final stage of our move. It's been a crazy month but I hope to get back into the swing of things here soon.

Current projects include trying to get everything good to go. (I do need to get a new computer desk after the other one didn't make the move. Yeah, it's in pieces in a dumpster somewhere.) And I still need to rearrange my new workspace, but I hope to start my Fiction Writing for the Average Joe series in the next month or two. I'll post links when that becomes available, but, in the meantime, if you have anything you'd like me to cover, by all means, comment or send me a message!

Also in the works, a 3-in-1 version of the Tarragon Trilogy, which will have, fingers crossed, new material in the back matter, mainly illustrations, potentially some short stories, and a few other possible surprises, so keep an eye open for that. I'm also hoping to make more public appearances here in the next year but we'll see how that goes.

All in all, it's been an eventful month and I'm sure the rest of the year will be no exception. Here's hoping it goes well for everyone!

Happy Back to School, everyone!

Thinking of Possibilities

So I've been thinking of turning my Tarragon series into audio books. If I did that, who would be interested? Would you prefer a certain type of voice? How would you feel if I were the one to read them?

Also, how would you feel about a new cover for The Unknown Elf? I think it might be time to update that one as well, and add a bit more to the appendix area of the book.

And while we're on the topic of potential changes and so forth, what kinds of things would you like to see from me in the future? Don't be shy. By all means, please let me know. Do you want more Tarragon? More Bob the Dinosaur? More with the elves at the North Pole? Or something completely different?

I wonder how many of you are interested in reading fan fiction. I don't give my fan fiction stories the same treatment as I do my original works so they're kind of rough, but I've been writing a lot involving Big Hero 6 lately, mixing them up with other fandoms. Who would be interesting in giving them a read over? After all, fan fiction is just as amazing, viable, and current as anything else I write.
