Fix it with FREE!!

Okay so I waited to hear back from Amazon. Since they are so far silent on my situation. I got the right file up now and everything seems fine, so I figured out my own solution.

Starting today (4/30/15) and ending Saturday(5/2/15) Elemental will be free. You can "buy" the book by clicking on the title or the picture.

So anyone who bought Elemental during the sale and received the wrong file can grab a copy. Also people who were not sure if they would like the book can now grab it for free just in case they might.

Again I want to apologize for anyone inconvenienced by the mix up. I hope anyone who gets the book enjoys it.

As always, have fun, and keep writing, and reading.

EDIT: I got an email saying that anyone who bought Elemental should get a notice to update to the current file, so that is good.

Well, this sucks.

So my last post was a cover reveal and a book sale. The sale did great and I want to thank everyone who helped spread the word.

I wish that could be the end of this post. Unfortunately it isn't.

Somehow, and honestly I can't figure it out since the book has been up for two years now, the files got changed out. So anyone who bought Elemental actually got Ashes, the second book. Ashes itself seems to be fine. 

Luckily Jo, over at Jo On Food, Life And A Scent Of Chocolate, alerted me to the fact. I have been dealing with Amazon about it and don't have many answers. They said they are reviewing if they will send out an email to all who bought the book to let them know to update. Either way the right file is up and should be able to be updated.

If you bought a copy please let me know if you have trouble updating. I truly apologize for this inconvenience.

Cover Reveal!!!!


It has been two years since the release of Elemental. In that time I have met some incredible people and gained some awesome readers.

The time has finally come for me to be able to share the cover of the third book with you all. I wanted to have book three published in April, but revisions take time. I feel very hopeful for a May release. So without further ado. Here is the cover for Light Bringer!

(Click me I get bigger)

I want to thank my cover artist, Sua Balac, for this awesome cover. It was truly fun working together to get it just right.


In celebration of the cover and the new book, I am doing a sale for both Elemental and Ashes. The sale starts today April 17 and ends Tuesday, April 21. I hope anyone who has not had a chance to read any of the books in the Light Bringer Saga, can catch up before book three. 


Now is the part I ask for a favor. I know this is a busy month for many bloggers and instead of sending out a bunch of e-mails I figured I would just ask here. If anyone has some free space at the bottom of an A-Z post or just a free spot and would be kind enough to share this cover and maybe mention the sale, it would be much appreciated. 

Anyway, so finally there is the cover and the sale. What do you think about it? I am extremely excited to have this book come out soon. It has been many years in the making. As always have fun and keep writing.

Entrenched in battle and told he won’t make captain, Aden’s world begins to collapse. How will he salvage his career and future during Hyrath’s darkest hour?

Other things while I write.

See the little guys above? Yes well, those little guys have been my sanity the past few weeks. 

How, you may ask. Well over the past year my life has been insane and while writing is an escape there are also expectations and people waiting for the third book. I don't mind that, in fact I rather enjoy it in the end, but it does come with it's stresses. 

Between the three kids, and the Noah's ark of  animals, there is quite a lot to fill my days. Still being an artist is what I am. I am not happy if I am not creating.

So I draw and I paint and I write. Another love of mine has been clay. I fell in love with it in school and have done a few things here and there over the years. Well my wife bought me some Sculpey colored clay and told me to go play with it when I was super stressed one day. 

I ended up having a blast. 

It was so nice to create things and not have to paint them after. 

There are two loves in the fantasy world for me. One is the little creatures. You can call them brownies or gremlins or goblins, but they are the little curious and sometimes mischievous ones.

The other is Gryphons(griffins,griffons). These are something that I love even more than dragons, which says a lot. I mean big, bird-cats, what isn't to love? 

So with these guys in mind I started creating and hit a ton of bumps a long the way, but soon found a method I loved and began working. 

Here is a Gryphon after I finally figured out the wings. 

So anyway. I really enjoyed making them and they are a huge stress relief. All those feathers have to be hand placed and I think on this guy it ended up being around 70 feathers, lol. Still I get in the zone.

I started to make quite a few of them and they began filling up space. My wife loved them and happens to own an Etsy shop so she asked if I would put them up there. So even though selling my art sometimes make me uncomfortable I agreed. 

If anyone wants to check them out I have a Deviant Art here. Deviant Art.

If anyone wants to take one home or knows someone who would or likes handmade jewelry here is the Etsy. Etsy Store

Anyway my next post will be my cover reveal. I have been around to some, but I want to wish everyone good luck on their A-Z this year. As always, have fun and keep writing.

I know many of you are doing A-Z so I will keep this short. A general theme of mine lately is time management. I think that is the case with most people trying to do anything in life. So I have decided to retire that worry as just part of existence and not something to overcome, instead it will be something to tweak over time. 

So this month my major worry is that I have book coming out soon. It is the third book in the Light Bringer Saga. I got the cover ready to go and it will soon be in the hands of beta readers, then my editor. I've got all of the new book nerves lol. 

Hope all enjoy A-Z, good luck on getting those post out. I plan to be around to see them all. 

As always have fun and keep writing.
