Reaper VII: Soultalker in final revisions this week!

So…

…….my sincere apologies for my long and recent silence.

I really have no good excuses.

If I can find the time to facebook images of Tardar Sauce AKA Grumpy Cat, surely i could have found time to both edit my damned revisions and update my WordPress Blog?!?!?!?!

I feel like I have abandoned my small but loyal following.

For that, I make this heartfelt apology and this pledge!

For the past few days, I have been working near-relentlessly on my edit for Reaper VII: Soultalker.

In this most recent installment of my Reaper Series, bad things happen to Samantha Bennet. Good things happen, too.

But then, terrible things happen. A brush with certain death. Injuries beyond repair. A high-stakes gamble, in which she loses her way of life.

Heartbreak… Helplessness… A lonely path…

Then, new hope in a new ally… yet, the dark days of prophecy loom ever present on the horizon.

And I leave you with the introduction of a duo of ruthless characters who’ve seen their share of nightmares and who seem best suited to aid Reaper in sorting out some of the wetworks in hers.

Cannot guarantee WHEN this installment will be done, as 77 pages is now 164 (Word doc, single space) and 38k words have kind of blossomed into 60K….

As soon as I am finished with her, I will upload to Amazon for your reading pleasure!

Same goes for Reaper VII (Title, as yet, undecided).

A lot of adventures in store for Miss Samantha Bennet yet.

A lot of ups & downs.

Some of them in bed… 😉

Happy reading!

Reaper I – V: The First Collection ~ Download it for FREE tomorrow!

February 28, 2012 at 10:14 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So…

…….I just programmed the first FREE promotion for Reaper I – V: The First Collection at Amazon.

You can get this 127,000 word volume FREE February 29 (Leap Year, as I promised certain individuals) and March 1, 2012.

What exactly are you downloading for free?

The Kindle collection of Reaper I: The Beginning, Reaper II: Neophyte, Reaper III: Rookies, Reaper IV: Daddy, Reaper V: To Skins!!!

And just what is Reaper?

A better question to ask is, what is a Reaper.

Or better yet, who is the Reaper…

Visit the link at  http://www.amazon.com/Reaper-First-Collection-ebook/dp/B007ET7UZ8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1330467037&sr=8-2  for the book blurb, to view the first few pages, and whatnot.

As always, sincere regards and happy reading!

Reaper V: WIP (Work In Progress)

February 17, 2012 at 6:46 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So…

…….I’m about 75% finished polishing, tweeking, steering and otherwise editing Reaper V: To Skins (which i am hereby re-naming Two Skins, because it makes so much more sense). With “To Skin” I was trying to imply that this practice involved something being adhered/writ literally “to the skin” or “to skins”.  Two Skins (having two skins) is a so much more simple, beautiful, and self-explanatory concept.

I really hope that readers will enjoy this installment, which I hope to have out for by Leap Year (and as a Free read on Amazon somewhere around that time).  I think that I will offer Reaper V: Two Skins for free for about a three day period (instead of five) and reserve the remaining two days for another block of time (a random weekend somewhere).

I’m still experimenting with trying to figure out if there’s a pattern of peaks and troughs where readers choose to download Free ebooks (some weekends seem busier than others, some weekdays have shown far more of a surge of interest than weekends).

Any-hoo, it’s Friday, which means payday in the real world —- and bills to pay.

Sincere regards, and happy reading!
