If I can't think of what to write next, I'll work on editing something. I might even edit an earlier chapter in the same piece, and that will inspire me to write what comes next. Also, there is a lot more to being an author than writing these days, so use your time productively. If your time at the keyboard isn't getting writing done, use the time for research, networking, marketing, and other related tasks. Don't just blow off work because of writer's block, there's plenty of other things to get done. The words will come, just don't give up.(less)

Even in fiction, there is an undercurrent of reality. Look at the works of Tolkien, and although there are elves and dwarfs and goblins; there is the undercurrent of what he lived in the trenches of World War One. Also, creating something from nothing is always something to be proud of. This is not exclusive to writing, by any means. Painting, sculpting, wood carving, etc, these forms of creation are all rewarding for the process alone.(less)

Revisions – An Inside Look

I have made it known for a while now I’m working on revising all my books and issuing new editions. Some are wondering what kind of revisions I’m working on. I’ve been asked if I’m changing the stories a few times, so I thought it might be insightful to share a little of what I’m working on.

First and foremost, I want to be clear I’m making no major changes to any of the books. The goal of the revi

The Hunter's Apprentice by B.K. Bass
"I loved this sequel more than the first book! The stakes/the danger for the characters seemed higher, this story had more grotesqueness to it, a bigger likable cast, and more humor! And, while it does have an ending, this book doesn't wrap it all up-" Read more of this review »
Seahaven by B.K. Bass
"Seahaven sucked me in straight away with its vivid descriptions, a character I liked, and dark/supernatural elements (which caught me by surprise). This was a fast-paced, quick and fun read, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!"
Parting the Veil by B.K. Bass
"I blazed through this book because of the constant intrigue, peril, adventure, and likeable characters. While there were some typos and punctuation errors, it didn't diminish my enjoyment of the story.
