I know,I should update regularly... I should just hire someone to help with this area, since I never know what to say, when very little happens. But, I have things to speak of now. First, anew cover.and updated material,freshly edited. 

It occurs to me that I need to remind myself, to remind myself, to actually use updates to let people know I am still alive and writing... Or maybe I need to hire someone to remind me, since I never see the google reminders I had set for myself.


I am alive, and writing, and editing, and writing. I am days away from ordering my proof copies. The reason I was absent on this forum, was that I pulled my novel down and went back to formula. I was not satisfied with the work I had done at that point, and consequently  I was premature in putting my story out there in the hopes of getting it picked up. After months of revisions and sending it out to different editors, I am satisfied with the work as it is now. I have a few more chapters to look over, as I want to be sure of the  Latin I use for titles in my story are correct. Once that is done I will order the proof copies and do a visual appraisal of the book to check for any errors in the text or layout, that I may have missed. 

For any of you followers who have not lost faith in me, and are interested in seeing the work I have done, check your emails. I just  uploaded the first 7 chapters and will send them out  after I finish this update.

Also if you are interested in seeing other writing I have done, you can find my short story, Charlotte’s Last Dance, on Amazon: here

It is available on all amazon platforms.

Hello everyone, sorry for the delay with the updates. I’ve been pulling 12-hour editing shifts admits the company of  wife  and five kids. I wanted to show everyone the progress I’ve been making, so I uploaded the new Prologue. 

It’s better than the old prologue because it has what was great about the previous version and now has huge new content designed to let you readers truly experience the hell of the Atlantean Military Akadamy, and also finally see what kind of cold hearted monster the High King  is. 

Do to a bad computer struggle I have delayed the publication date of To Kill a King. My hope is to reconcile the issue  and have the book published before or by June 1st.
