More good news

I just received word from my agent that along with Templars Gate she will also be representing my short story Dark Awakening. So I will now have two stories ‘in play’ as I finish up There’s no such thing as werewolves, which is turning out to be a very fun prequel to Templars Gate.

My new agent, by the way, is Saritza Hernández. She is the ePub Agent at the L. Perkins Agency ( ). I am so thrilled to have her on board. I plan to do a ‘Meet my agent’ blog soon, so we can all get to know her better.

Right now I have a Letter of Agreement to fill out and send, and some writing to do, so until next time…


I have an agent!

Yesterday was a very exciting day for me. I received an email from a literary agent who would like to represent me and my work. Once all the paperwork is done she will start to shop Templars Gate to publishers and is ready help me place any of my other work. Needless to say, I am thrilled. This is probably the biggest step in my writing career yet.

So, I have made the decision to change gears (once again) and shelve my Fantasy Novel for now. I plan on working on a story called There’s no such thing as Werewolves, which is a companion piece to Templars Gate, set in the same universe. The story is a lot of fun. It expands a bit on the lore of the demons and brings in a few of the characters from Templars Gate. Love interests Jack (who thinks he’s a ware wolf, simply because he changes into a beast every full moon) and Anna (an herbalist/sorceress who knows better). The story actually happens before the events of Templars Gate. I’m going to try to hurry it along, as I’d like to give my agent (My Agent – I love the sound of that) both stories to shop around with the idea that one may help to sell the other.

Right now I have at least two more stories in my head set in the Templars Gate Universe. It should be a fun journey.

As the rain continues to fall here in the northwoods, there’s plenty of sunshine at my house today. Time to write…


Wow, how long has it been?

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I just noticed how long it’s been since I blogged. Part of the reason is there is nothing new to tell you. Work continues, no news on the agent front, etc. etc.

I started an exorcise routine in the morning, before writing time. I’ve been able to stick to it now for about 4 weeks, so it’s become a habit, just like my writing. Every once in a while I’ll take one or two days off (just like my writing) but I always get back at it.

Fall is great in Wisconsin. The leaves have just started to turn. Cool, crisp mornings.

Not much to say this time, but there you have it. I’ll try to do better next time.


Stolen from another blog

I found this on another blog I read regularly and just had to share it with you. Plus it was a good excuse to learn how to embed video in my blogs.

The transcript is here, but watch the video first, it’s priceless.

Anyway, it’s back to work for me today after taking the past three days off from writing.

Have a great week,
