Resurgent Shadows has LAUNCHED

Resurgent Shadows, Book 1 in the Successive Harmony Series, is officially launched.  You canResurgent Shadows - EBook go buy the ebook on Amazon by clicking on the picture of the amazing cover to the right.  Along with the launch, there are some fun giveaways and other activities going on throughout the day.  Make sure to check out my Facebook Author page throughout the day.

There will be a Goodreads giveaway for some print copies of the book (which will be available in a few weeks) and fun announcements over on my publisher’s page including a Kindle Fire Giveaway!! I’ll make sure to come back and post links to those here once they come out.

Please help spread the word today by letting people know about the book and the giveaways that are going on throughout the day.

My first novel, Sands, is only $0.99 for the next week so pick up that one too if you haven’t yet.  Get it while it’s cheap.

Anyway, here’s the book blurb for Resurgent Shadows:

Humanity stands on the brink of annihilation. Dragons fill the skies.

Ever since the Breaking, when earthquakes tore the world apart and unleashed the nightmares of myth and legend, humankind has struggled for survival.

Caleb is one of the survivors, and the only thing he cares about is getting revenge on the monsters that killed his wife and son. When he saves the life of a dverger—a mythic dwarf-like creature—Caleb discovers that the Breaking may have brought good to the world along with the evil.

On the other side of the country, Eric leads a small group of survivors in relative prosperity until a powerful war hammer is forced into his hands—a weapon with a will of its own so commanding that it sends Eric on a mission with one purpose: destroy the creatures that threaten his home.

Caleb and Eric must each decide to do something no one has dared before: to battle the Dragonlords.”

 

PS.  For those looking for my regular Thursday post (What I Wish I’d Known, Part 3 – The Editing Process), it will be posted tomorrow (Friday).  It’s a good post and I don’t want it to get lost in the Release news.

Find Your Own Way…

Along with my recent move, I also started a new job within the same company.  The position requires ten weeks of training in a “Nesting Team” before actual work can begin.  The first two weeks have been intensive and comprehensive.  so much information has been presented that most days I come home with information overload headaches.  Recently, one of the trainers went over the initial setup process for a home loan purchase and/or refinance.  There are so many different things that need to take place that there is a specific checklist and process flow that has been developed.  At the beginning of the overview, the trainer said something that I understood to be the most important piece of information shared that day.  She said, “Find your own way to do this setup process – you can’t copy someone else’s way of doing things unless it works for you.”

That’s how it is with writing too.  You have to find your own way of doing things.  Hopefully James will forgive me for using the following example.  I’ve been writing fantasy novels since I was 11 years old.  After I got married, I started working on a new novel that I thought was going to be amazing.  I wrote the first chapter and sent it off to my buddy, James, to read.  He came back with a large list of items that needed to be corrected.  So I re-wrote the first chapter, sent it back to James, edited some more, and ended up discouraged with the whole process.  I never got passed that first chapter to the part of the story that I found most interesting.  That’s how James writes now – chapter by chapter.  After about a six month hiatus from writing at all, I decided to pursue another novel idea that I had.  This time I didn’t involve James until I had already finished the second draft.  Why was the second novel completed and the first one not?  Because I went back to doing things my way.  I write best when I write straight through and then go back later to fix things up.  James’s way is not Kevin’s way.  You have to Find Your Own Way…
