Ring out the Old! Bring in the New !!

Just a short note to say thank you for all the support you've shown me throughout the year. I appreciate you all more than you know. I pray that as this year closes out and a new year comes in, that all your prayers and hard work manifest into tangible dreams in 2014.

Speaking of which, One of my dreams is to see the Good News Series turned into movies. Well, I've got some exciting news on that front. Check out the link below and let me know what you think.


Remember, this can be your year too!. Go after your dreams. The door is wide open!

God Bless You and Happy New Year!!!

The Audiobooks have begun!

Just in time for the holidays, Enough Good News is now available in audiobook form on audible(dot) com! So if you're planning a long road trip during this winter break, take Enough Good News along with you. The book is narrated by Helen Cricco and is over eight hours long. That should take care of a good block of time, whether you're on the road or just sitting in the office. The book is currently free if you sign up for a trial membership with audible. The membership costs $14.95/month for one book of your choice, which is a great deal because the price of audiobooks is determined by their length. The. cost for Enough Good News without the membership is $19.99. There are also other plans available. I'm recording book #2, No Weapon, now, and Helen is working on #3, Blind Justice now; so if you are into audiobooks, membership may make sense for you.
I don't know that I'm going to get another post off this year, so let me be one of the first of your social media friends to wish you Happy Holidays and a wonderful new year!

This is me getting better about blog posting :-)

Anyway, I didn't have a whole lot to say, but wanted to post something, so I decided to include my response to a recent reader's comment about the last book. This person thought I might have been stretching it a bit when I had the character "Kid" understand what was going on with Gil. I don't want to give anything away for those who haven't read the book, but this reader thought the concept I presented was a little out there, but like I mentioned at the beginning of the book, and to this reader, the "supernatural" occurrences in the books are based on reality. 
In this case, God will let others "read our mail" in some instances. Check out part of the response I shared with the reader: (For those who haven't read Third Watch yet, you may want to stop here. This is a Spoiler Alert) 

 I got the idea to have Kid understand the language after I heard a minister say he had been on a trip to a foreign country. The man assigned to take care of the minister did not speak English, but his wife did and was also the minister's interpreter. The minister said the whole time he was there, he never heard the man speak English, only his wife. When Sunday service rolled around, the minister said the man got up in the pulpit to welcome him and said in perfect English, something like "praise be to the most high". The minister turns to the wife and says "why have you been doing all the speaking?  I thought he didn't speak English.". The wife said, "he doesn't. English is his prayer language. That's how I know when something is on his heart."

You can't make this stuff up people! Lol
Go with God and have a great day.

I said I was going to get better

But I haven't - updating this blog I mean. 
So, I'm going to try again. Now that I'm past my (writers block doesn't seem like the right fit) lets call it hindrance, I'll try this blog thing again. The 6th book in the Good News series, Third Watch, is complete and I feel like I can move on. It took forever, or it seemed that way, but now I feel like I can take something back, like my life. 
And like I said, it wasn't writers block. I wrote plenty during the last year, just not on that book.  FYI, if you're into the tv show Scandal, I wrote a piece that you can find on fanfiction.net entitled "Full Circle Again." Feel free to peruse that whilst I finish the last book in the series. I also put some suggestions at the bottom of the "products" page of my website if you were looking for some more Christian books. I think it's a good mix of non-fiction and fiction. I'll probably be adding more later.
So back to my rambling. I'm going to try and do better about updating this blog.
That is all.

New Beginnings

Hellllooooo good people! I know it's been a while, and I apologize, but the fourth book is done and ready for your consumption. Long Night is the fourth book in the Good News Series and features Terrence as the main character, although as always, I do update you on other characters you've met in earlier books. I also want to take this time to thank and congratulate Ronda Shula, who won my first "Become a Good News Character" contest. Ronda followed the contest rules on my website and her name was picked as the winner. Ronda is now immortalized as a Good News Series character in Long Night. The contest is now open for the next book, Even Me, which will feature Sidonna, the sister we first learn about in book #1, Enough Good News.

I hope that, like me, you've made up your minds to have a fantastic year. Of course we can't know everything that we will face in 2012, but we can be assured that if God allows it, it will work for our good. 2011 wasn't the best year for me, but as the new year approached, I felt hopeful. And a few days ago, I just decided, I mean flat out made up my mind, that 2012 was going to be a FANTASTIC year for me. I was thinking it should be, and hoping it would be a great year, but it made all the difference in my own posture when I decided that it would absolutely be, without a doubt, one of my best years, EVER. I hope you join me in believing that.

I pray God blesses you with your own revelation about your future and the good things He has planned for you. (Jeremiah 29:11)

P.S. don't forget to keep an eye out for Even Me, coming Summer 2012

Believe Again

First, let me apologize for the long break, but you will be happy to know that I put the time to good use. I finished my script (yay me!) and I'm plowing away on book #4 in the Good News Series, LONG NIGHT. I hope to have the book ready for the holidays. Pray for me. And I've got a couple of other projects I'm working on but I was worn out. I'll be honest with you, I was starting to feel like there was no use in any of it (writing) but God gave me my second wind and now I feel like I can focus clearly and move ahead. If you're feeling the same way, I wrote a little something the other day that might encourage you to keep pushing.(see below) Whatever you're going through, hang in there. Know that God has your back and has already gone ahead of you to prepare a better place.
"For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord. Thoughts of good and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

God Bless

Believe Again

Whatever didn't work last time, whatever you stopped in the middle of because you came up against too many obstacles, whatever mountain didn't move out of your way...try it again. It CAN happen. Pull yourself together then pull that dream out of the back of the closet and get reacquainted with it. Spend some time with it and fall in love again. Clean it up and place it where you can see it. Then, take a deep breath and listen...you hear it? It sounds like the wind blowing through the trees but it's really God breathing life back into your dead thing. I know it didn't work last time but try it again. I mean full out - GO FOR IT. I didn't say it would be easy or quick but it is POSSIBLE.
Believe Again.

Just Checking In

Hello readers! Well, it's official. I have my Master's Degree in Entertainment Business (yay me!) I finished the program about the same time that I finished my book, BLIND JUSTICE, the 3rd book in the GOOD NEWS SERIES. I took a little break and then it was back to writing. Im just getting to the end of my second draft for my first screenplay, and I've also started working on the fourth book in the series LONG NIGHT. (No rest for the weary) For those who are interested, this 4th book will focus on the character Terrence - because I've had a few requests to find out more about him. This book should be ready by the holidays (Nov/Dec) Other than that, not too much is going on. I hope you're enjoying your work too. If not, it may be time to make some changes, hmmm? Just a thought. Until next time...
