2019 My Year in Publishing

Storytelling has been my life for many years. It's in my blood. Even when I didn't know squat about story structure, POV, or how to show and not tell. I remember sitting on the front porch at my childhood home with my friend Paul, telling our corny superhero stories, not knowing then that I would make a life out of entertaining people with writing. It's been a long hard road, but its been worth every struggle, every disappointment, every letdown and every triumph.

The year has come full circle and as I look back on 2019 I’m proud at what I have accomplished in my publishing career. Being a full time writer has always been a dream of mine. Making that dream a reality has been hard work. But it’s hard work that has paid off.

Over the last year I’ve traveled all over, meeting readers like you who have told me they’ve enjoyed my books, and that is totally worth the aforementioned hard work. I've gown my mailing list (which you can expect an end of the year newsletter next week.), and I've published two books, Captain Hawklin and the Shadow Men and Absolution: A Novel in the Serena Darkwood Adventures, this year.

I would like to thank all the people who have made 2019 a blast. First to you, the reader, who have supported my books, met me at cons, and told others about my work - you are my inspiration, and the reason I sit on the keyboard everyday. Thank You!

To my fellow writers:
Brian K Morris
David Beem
Amy Hale
Cathy Jackson
Marlin Williams
John Bruening
The list goes on and on. You guys rise me up when I'm down, and there have many, many days like that. If it weren't for all my writer and creator friends I might have given up a long time ago.

And last, but never least, to the love of my life, my wife Mary Ann. You are my rock, my muse. Your positivity never surprises me. You always see a light when things get a little dark.

2020 is upon us. I go into the new year excited at the prospects. Happy New Year Everyone.
