When my writing hits the proverbial wall and I'm bashing my head on my keyboard, I do the opposite - I pull myself completely out - otherwise I feel like I'm forcing myself to write and it no longer feels like a labor of love, but a major hassle! I take a few days off, focus on other hobbies like biking, hiking, working out, and watching movies. When I go back to picking up where I left off, I feel excited, refreshed, and eager to start up again.(less)

A special gift we all share in is the ability to come up with an idea, and to make it tangible, tactile, and real. From my son's painted drawings to developing the idea for a business, to creating a fantasy series of books, it's a wonderful and enthralling process to create something from nothing. If there are any real adventures left to partake in that take you away from the day to day world, it's certainly that.(less)

Here we go again - my crude illustrative concept for the front/back cover for book #4 in the Forging of a Knight series, The Stolen Thief - weaving its way to you (hopefully) by September-October of this year. I'm excited to see what Lora Lee, my illustrator, comes up with from this!

Hugo Negron With a tentative release date of summer 2012, I invite you to my first novel, Forging of a Knight (cover design by up and coming illustrator Lora Lee - http://www.loraart.com).

Visit http://www.facebook.com/Forging.of.a.... and "Like" the page to follow the book's progression. It will be available through amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com (iPad, NOOK, and Kindle distribution), and directly through lulu.com and me for hard copy availability.

Here are some excerpts from the back cover:

A battle against the forces of Those That Stand in Shadow brings an end to an old hero and a beginning for a new one. Together with a half-orcne thief named Glaive, a young warrior named Qualtan must battle through undead hordes, shape-shifting maugs, hungry trolls, and more on his journey to become a knight. Along the way, he learns the world isn’t as simple as he first thought. Good and evil are not always what they seem, close friends can be deadly enemies, and loyalty can sometimes be rewarded with treachery. Even if Qualtan can grow from these lessons, a greater one will need to be faced: can an unexpected friendship with a thief of orcne blood, despised by all, support his chance for knighthood, or ruin it altogether?

"I so enjoyed this book! So vivid, so well crafted, I was immersed in the story from the beginning and found it was a very satisfying, entertaining read. So imaginative, there was really not one plot point that I predicted, and that's amazing. The other great thing is the pacing. It really flows quite well, and I didn't feel bogged down in the action ever." - Erin Potter, Shamrock Editing

Thanks for your support!

Best,

- H
