Space... Deep Space.

These are the hands of James Davis' fate.
Tonight, sitting in my hotel room in South Carolina, I felt the energy to pick up my computer and do some writing. At first I thought I might dabble in my new WoW Adventures, but instead I turned to James Davis.

It's been some time since I have written anything new for James. In the months since finishing my draft of The Hero of Hyla, it has mostly been editing and incorporating comments from beta readers. I've heard a lot of positive feedback on that front and I'm very pleased for that. Now the ball is in my court to begin work on a cover and work needs to begin on converting the manuscript into XML so that I can publish an eBook. The technical side of it was a little daunting and I fell away from the project for a short while.

I've enjoyed the break, which gave me some time to play WoW with my wife and reflect on my other creative writing ideas. As I push through the first story arch of my new WoW Adventures, I plan to continue toward publishing my first novel and gearing up to write my second novel.

That being said...

I totally wrote two draft chapters of my new novel tonight!

I can't really talk about what I'm working on just yet, mostly because I haven't even finished the first entry's road to being published, but I am very excited for what I have laid out for the next novel. James Davis is a fun character and I'm hoping that as my story telling continues to improve, the development of his character will be easier to portray.

A lot of the characters are introduced in The Hero of Hyla. This new entry will allow me to take those characters and really dive into who they are, why they have become the men and women we see in the story, and push them toward their next big adventure.

For now, though... I should sleep.

Heading Back to a Galaxy Far Far Away!

When the old Star Wars "Expanded Universe" was retired to Legendarystatus, I was torn apart. I had grown to love the novels that were being published each year and going to Dragon Con to meet the authors was a special day for me each year. At the same time, I knew that in exchange for this sacrifice, I would be getting more Star Wars movies.

Thankfully, that exchange has already proven to be extremely valuable. Now I am graced with a universe filled with new adventures and exciting opportunities!

Meanwhile, while the previous published works of the EU have been moved to the "maybe it happened, but probably not" section of the franchise, new novels have emerged that continue to fill my shelves at home.

Today, a new novel joins the ranks:

Picking up over twenty years since  Return of the Jedi ended, this novel is one of the first that really dives head first into the time where the EU had freely played before.

Claudia Gray has traditionally published YA novels, but s…

Name of the Wand Season 2

When it comes to creative writing, I try to experiment a little from time to time. One of those experiments started six years ago with a simple idea to create a backstory for my World of Warcraft character, a mage of Stormwind.
This story is fan fiction, that I must admit, but despite taking place in the world of Azeroth, I have tried to give life to my mage and fill him with a compelling purpose and surround him with original characters rather than trying to shoehorn him into the larger Warcraft narrative. Now, with the upcoming Warcraft movie, I realize that more people than ever may begin to recognize the locations and characters referenced throughout my stories. 
I publish new adventures from time to time, and today I've made the entire second season (short episodes that string together a narrative) available for viewing. Meanwhile, the first season is also available at the main site, and if you want to see some writing from many years past, you can check out the "origin…

The Hero of Hyla Paperback

When I first started working on publishing The Hero of Hyla, I assumed that creating a print copy of my book was simply out of my reach. I had tried to print a manuscript before and that wasn't cheap. 
So, last month when I finally launched my new book, I released it as a Kindle ebook with the goal of selling digital copies.
Of course, I soon met some harsh realities. The truth of the matter is, the eReader market is shrinking rather than growing, and while some people are fine reading an article or two on their phones or tablets, they just aren't apt to pick up a book and stare at an LED screen for hours on end.
Thankfully, with extra work and time I have been able to produce a print coy of my novel that can be purchased directly through Amazon.
It is already for sale! Grab a copy today!
Additionally, I will be lowering the price of my eBook copy to just $2.99 to help make the novel more appealing to those who might have to choose between my first book or something like The M…
