This is my official author site where I post various blogs, reviews, and news about my writing projects, including my Amazon bestselling horror-thriller novel Devil’s Nightmare, which is available for purchase in print at Amazon, and for eBook on Amazon Kindle (Worldwide), via the free Kindle App for other devices; Devil’s Nightmare and my other books are also coming soon to Nook and Kobo.
To keep me on track with writing Devil’s Nightmare I took the #WIP500 challenge beginning Jan. 1, 2012. The challenge was to write 500 words every day. Everything went great for the first nine months, but as soon as I completed the first draft of Devil’s Nightmare I began to focus all of my attention on the editing and publishing process. Nonetheless, the #WIP500 challenge was an integral part of my success in completing this project. I took the #WIP500 challenge again in 2014 while I wrote Devil’s Nightmare: Premonitions, which I published on October 14 this year
This year I participated in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) for the first time. The challenge is to write 50,000 words in 30 days (November 1-30). That’s over 1,600 words every day, so it was quite the feat to accomplish. I’ve wanted to do this for a while now, but I was always tied up with another project. It’s one reason why I wanted to publish Devil’s Nightmare: Premonitions in October. I’m glad I participated too, because it helped to get me very disciplined with my writing schedule. While it was very challenging, as it should be, I am proud to announce that I reached my goal of 50,000 words ahead of schedule. I still have a long road ahead of me to complete my next novel, tentatively titled Devil’s Nightmare: Redemption (Book 3 of the Devil’s Nightmare Trilogy), but I am determined to have it completed and published by Summer 2015. I also have another horror novel I plan to begin writing this summer that will be set in a Texas prison, with my goal of having it published by Winter 2015/2016.
