So I got an ARC of Under This Unbroken Sky by Shandi Mitchell from Barnes and Noble’s First Look book club.  I started it – I’m not too far in yet, but it’s interesting.  It’s definitely not the sort of book I would normally be found reading, but it’s never bad to try something new, […]

Phoenix Monsoon Season is “Disappointing”

Monsoon Season 2009 premiered on June 15th.  Eager fans watched the skies, hoping to catch an action packed scene.  However, what they got was nothing short of disappointing.  The skies were virtually cloudless.  Fans of the monsoon quickly became alarmed. “I scheduled my entire day around the premeire,” said Phoenix resident, An Flingnight.  “Last year’s […]

Updated Space Dog FAQ

Sorry for the lack of updates.  I actually wrote a new short story, so I was kind of focused on that.  Anyway, I added four new FAQ entries on the Space Dog website as well as a new section to the FAQ: ‘About the Solar Stone Trilogy Plot and Characters.’  I was originally going to […]

Utilizing Amazon’s Features (from Guest Blogger, Dawson Vosburg)

Just as promised, Dawson Vosburg is guest blogging today.  He is also a Lulu author as well as a teen novelist, just like myself.  He’s done quite an impressive job in marketing his book and right now he’s on his blog tour promoting Double Life.  You should seriously check out his website to see some […]

Quick Update

Just a really quick update. I had to install reCaptcha onto my blog because it’s been attacked a bunch by spam bots and I’m sick of having to go through each and delete them. Sorry, I know reCaptcha is annoying, but it’s gotta be done. =/ Second, check out the article below. Like I mention […]

From the Lecture: Character Evolution

So among other things, I’m hoping to base a blog entry on a piece of the presentation I gave to local school kids when promoting my book this past school year. I’m going to attempt for every Friday – but NO promises! 🙂 You’re reading a book – and yes, this one’s a page turner.  […]

Hungry for the Hunger Games!

The Hunger Games by Susanne Collins was released last September, and I actually read it last December, but I had a mini sneak preview of it last summer.  So, why am I blogging about it now – almost a year later?  Simply because I never got to it before.  It’s summer now, and with the […]

Blog Makeover (Again! – But This One’s Good!)

I have FINALLY designed my first WordPress theme!!  As you can see it’s in use at this very moment. 😀 However, I must warn ‘yeh that it’s not entirely complete.  I have things to add onto the sidebar (I wanna make it look a lot different), the giant featured image *points above* will eventually be […]

The Cover, HP Companion and More!

No, I’m not following Mr. Vosburg and releasing my cover just because he did. 🙂  Actually, I told my friends that I would post the cover after I got a copy of the book, and I have!  In fact, I got two copies of Space Dog and the Black Virus in the mail the other […]
