Gnomes: No. Mages: No. Bran Hambric: YES!

We’re beginning to see more and more young authors in the publishing business, whether in the self-publishing or mainstream publishing industries. Who comes to mind when you think of a young author? Christopher Paolini? Nancy Yi Fan? Cayla Kluver has been making headlines herself lately. Kaleb Nation should be making headlines himself soon, as he […]

Talk About Crazy!

This week has been crazy! I’m not really sure where to begin…. maybe the bad stuff? The homework I’ve had in the last week has been ridiculous. There were a few nights where I had two or three assignments from the same teacher at one time (all three due the next day). Some of these […]

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 […]

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 […]
