My first book

My first book

I’ve completed my first book. It’s somewhere between 700-800 pages. 151333 words. I still have to edit it, clean some things up, continuity, and throw in some back stories to some characters… and it’ll be ready to publish. But the book as a whole is done.

Editing

So I’m working on editing my book getting it ready for publication.  I’ve come to the conclusion that editing on the screen of a Netbook is far more grinding than editing normally is.  This makes it slow.  As soon as this editing is done, I’ll be working on the cover.  I’m going to do a […]

One of my favorite reads, for free.

Got a message from my good friend and author Marcus Wynne.  He is offering up his first book for free.  I’ve spoken of Marcus’ works in the past.  He is an extraordinary writer of gritty action, and I enjoy his writing a great deal.  It’s actually his fault entirely that I’ve been jonesing hard for […]

The Book of Two Guns, by Tiger McKee.  “The Martial Art of the 1911 pistol and AR Carbine” Tiger sent me an autographed copy of his book. It’s a very interesting book.  I’ve not seen a book like this in years.  It’s not just written by Tiger, but its actually written by Tiger.  As in […]

Dead Six

Dead Six

Our good friends Mike Kupari and Larry Correia has written a book entitled “Dead Six“.  This is Larry’s bazzilionth book and Mike’s first.  The concept was all Mike’s however, and it’s solid.  So solid in fact, that you don’t so much read it… as it smashes you over the head with awesomeness.  I just placed […]
