It used to be, that if an author wanted to release a second edition of a book he would first need to wander through miles of red tape within a traditional publishing house, and then hope that he sell out his first printing completely, for me this was a much less involved process. Last week I took a morning to augment a particular section of In the Window Room that had been nagging at me lately. I don't believe this will be a common occurrence as I continue to write, and publish, but if I can take a simple few hours to improve upon a work that took 6 months to complete. And if I can be humble enough to know when things might be helped by a second look, then I intend to use the tools at my disposal. When it's really just a easy as pressing "send" to make any changes I'd like.

Also, Happy late Easter. Buy or Borrow In the Window Room on Amazon

I just finished writing a new book. Yesterday I sent it off to the printers, so I could get a few proof copies for editing purposes.

Here's some info about it:
176 pages. Ages 9 and up.

Summary:
The Road to Jericho - About a boy from Arkansas, and his dog, who get wrapped up into dangerous circumstances. It's about their travels to Jericho, AR, a hubbub of wanton and reckless living, in the Summer of 1949. It's a book about charity, and gratitude, and greed and the choices that lead us there.

It should released with the next month or so.
Until then... "Like" the Facebook page www.facebook.com/TheRoadtoJericho. Add it to your "to-read" list http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15711594-the-road-to-jericho
And expect giveaways, when the time comes, and a book release party in Redlands, CA. TBD.

After six months of writing, hours and hours of edits, and rewrites, A Prince of Earth is finally finished. Paperback and eBook copies are available now, on Amazon. If you were a fan of the first book in the series, then I promise you this, you'll love this new story.

I have a name for book #3 of The Histories of Earth series. And it is.... (drum roll), All the Worlds of Men.

You won't want to miss this next book, but make sure to catch up on the first two novels before reading the third, this is one of those series that builds heavily upon itself.
