I know, I know, I’ve not been an attentive blogger recently, and I apologize. But to my credit, it’s been a busy few weeks. As I’ve mentioned, I decided to try offering Dawn of the Lightbearer for pre-order. Has it been a success? Yes and no. It depends on how you measure success. Has anyone taken theContinue reading “The final (hopefully) read-through!”
We’ll be returning to our regular scheduled programming soon with the continuation of part 3 of my in-laws’ first adventure to the US mini-series (Part 1 and Part 2). I haven’t forgotten the My Life in China Series and still have some stories to tell. As many of you know, I’m in editing overdrive forContinue reading “Final push to the deadline”
Dawn of the Lightbearer, the first book in my new Absolution of the Morning Star series, will be out July 2nd and is now available for Pre-order on Amazon! For my last two books, Island of Stone and the Slaying of the Bull, I was too nervous to schedule a release date and make availableContinue reading “Pre-order Dawn of the Lightbearer!”
As I continue to edit my new novel, Dawn of the Lightbearer, that will hopefully be available soon, I wanted to provide those interested with a little teaser. You can find a very rough draft of Chapter 1 here. I’m about halfway through the third read-through for content edits. I tend to read through untilContinue reading “Dawn of the Lightbearer preview!”
When we last left off (read part 1 here), my wife and I were in the international arrival area of JFK airport, eagerly awaiting the arrival of my in-laws on their first trip outside of China. At this point, it was an hour after their plane arrived, and still no parents. As I mentioned, theyContinue reading “My life in China, Part 33- My in-laws’ US adventure 2”
Hi all, I just wanted to provide a quick update. I know I haven’t posted a blog in a while, but rest assured, the saga of my in-laws’ first adventure to the US will continue soon! Recently, I’ve been pretty busy editing the Dawn of the Lightbearer, and with the nice weather, doing a bitContinue reading “Update- Editing and yard work”
As promised, it is time for the telling of my in-laws’ first great adventure to the United States! It’s a long tale played out over months, so I’ve decided to break it up into a miny series. My in-laws have now been to the US three times and were supposed to come this summer, butContinue reading “My life in China, Part 32- My In-laws’ US adventure”
My wife and I never had a wedding ceremony. Do we regret it? We’ve had this discussion from time to time over the years, and the answer is no, not really. Whether in China or (especially) in the US, they are massive money sinks. I think most people have fond memories of their wedding, butContinue reading “My life in China, Part 31- Weddings”
Coming back to the US after two years abroad wasn’t easy for a variety of reasons. Actually, who am I kidding? It was quite the storm, with major life decisions made on a forced and short timeline- the kind of experience you could only have when you’re young. Everything ultimately worked out in the end,Continue reading “My life in China, Part 30- Shock of re-entry”
Last night, after a very intense two months (almost exactly), I finished the story of my new book, Dawn of the Lightbearer! It was quite the whirlwind averaging 11,000 words a week and ending out at about 117,000 total. I’ve never had such a burst of creativity, and for the most part, this book justContinue reading “First draft complete!”
