Greetings wonderful followers,
I have some news. I have contracted Mickey Mikkelson with Creative Edge as my publicist. He will help me build a strong writer platform and get the word out about Beyond the Code. He’s already booked me to be a guest on the awesome writers video podcast, Spilling Ink, on Feb 17/18. Look out for it.
With any luck, we’ll have plenty more events to announce in the future. I’ll keep you informed the best I can.
Also, I’m being told that the email address confirmations have been going out to my wonderful readers. So if you have moved in the recent future, make sure to input your correct address. And don’t forget that once you have read Beyond the Code, make sure to give it a review. Reader reviews are a first time authors best friend.
Thank you all for following me this far. It’s been a long road but pub day is fast approaching.

I just got some exciting news from Inkshares. According to them, Beyond the Code should be all printed up in about two weeks, then they’ll start sending out the purchased copies to my wonderful backers. Can’t wait. Be sure to keep an eye on your email if you have moved in the last while so they can get your new mailing address. Wouldn’t want some stranger enjoying your book.
Thank you all for following me this far.

Hello wonderful followers,
Just a friendly reminder, I’ve been adding content to Beyond the Code’s facebook page. Please check it out if you want to browse through Beyond the Code content.
Hello there fantastic followers,
Production of Beyond the Code is going great and I finally have to time to put all my efforts into marketing my debut novel. Part of my marketing plan has been updating Beyond the Code’s facebook page. This page will be chock full of Beyond the Code content such as news on production, concept art, reviews, interviews, and more. So please, follow the link and follow the page for Beyond the Code updates and content.
For those who have followed Beyond the Code but haven’t yet pre-ordered, please consider joining this club. Just see what these amazing authors have said about it.
Craig Munro, author of Bones of the Past says "Elegant descriptions, endless action and super powers - go check out this urban fantasy"
Tony Valdez, author of Dax Harrison says "Fast paced, action-packed fantasy! I can see the movie in my head already!"
Brian Guthrie, author of Rise says "An amazing concept that you won’t regret supporting"
These awesome authors know their stuff, so trust them when they say that Beyond the Code is definitely worth your support. Help make my first novel as successful as possible before it’s release.
Thank you all for following me on this journey.
I have a couple great things to show and tell you. Things are progressing very well with the production schedule. My final edits with WritingTherapy have been done and now we are doing the galley proof. Chersti with WriterTherapy has said she is really enjoying the book, which is filling me with a giddy energy.
In other news, COverkitchen and I have hammered down the first looks at Beyond the Code’s new cover art and I feel like it’s in a place where I can finally show it off to all of you. You can see it on Beyond the Code’s Facebook page.
Also, now you can pre-order Beyond the Code on Amazon and through Indigo Bookstores. It’s amazing to see something with my name on it available through a major bookstore. CRAZY!!!! Just look at these links if you don’t believe me.
And if you wanted to be the best fans EVER, you can go into any Indigo or Cole’s bookstore and ask them about Beyond the Code. If we’re lucky, that will urge them to put some copies on there shelves. For a light publishing, that would be INCREDIBLE!!!!
Thank you all for following me this whole time, it’s been a long time coming but we’re almost to the finish line. And, for those of you who are following Beyond the Code and have not yet pre-ordered, please consider joining the fun. I have been getting alot of good feedback from my beta-readers and editors and I believe it’s definitely worth your time.
Thanks again and have a good one,
I first want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have followed Beyond the Code to this point. I know it has been a long road and you don’t know what it means to me that you all have stuck in there with me. With that being said i have a big announcement to make. WE HAVE A RELEASE DATE!!!
That’s right, after this lengthy journey we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Inkshares has officially put this project into gear and the complete manuscript is in the capable hands of Chersti and Carlisa at WriterTherapy for it’s copy edit as we speak.
If all goes according to Inkshares schedule, the book should be out and about by January 30/18.
During this time i’ll also be getting some great cover art made by the talented people at CoverKitchen. They are the minds behind the colourful cover art to Inkshares very own "Sunshine is forever" by Kyle T Cowan. I’ll keep you updated on the progress and will hopefully have something cool to show you soon.
Thanks again for all of your support thus far. I, for one, can’t wait till the winter.
Another quick thing. I have written a Prologue for Beyond the Code and I am curious what you will think about it. So, take a gander at my new work and tell me what you think.
Greetings all my wonderful followers,
I apologise for the long radio silence, but I was working hard making Beyond the Code the best it can be. I’ll be it, it has been a long wait and life has gotten in the way alot more then I would’ve liked, but i finally have some news for you guys. With the help of my great and helpful beta readers and plenty of time slaving over my laptop, I have finished my manuscript and have sent it to Inkshares.
That’s right.Now all i have to do is get some fancy new cover art made and wait for Inkshares to get back to me with the first round of the cover edit. Exciting! Although, I can’t give you all a timeline yet, I will send an update as soon as i hear news from Inkshares.
Things are HAPPENING!!
Sorry for the long silence. I’ve have my nose to the grind stone, working hard to make Beyond the Code the best it can be. But even with how hectic this time of year can be and how hard I’ve been working I just wanted to take a moment and wish you all a Merry Christmas or happy which ever winter holiday you celebrate.
I know it’s been one hell of a year for everyone but it’s almost to a close so try and take some time to reflect of the good things that have happened and the great things we still have.
I, for one am grateful that I got the chance to connect with all of you. Thank you all for the fantastic support you all have given me and I wish you all the best in the coming year.
