Starting the second week in September there are plans to add a rotating schedule of posts. Some will be easy to maintain. Others not so much. However, I plan to keep things going this way on a regular basis.
Mondays: Character of the Week (this will never run out as I continue to add characters to the METAVERSE)
Tuesdays: Teasers (First Tuesday every month)
Wednesdays: Writing Tips
Thursdays: Tales (Flash Fiction)
Fridays: METAVERSE TALK
Personal Posts such as life and more can happen any day of my choosing. Likely to show up on my Instagram or Facebook feed.
Summer is that time of year that seems, generally, loaded with inconsistancies. Yet, I have still managed to keep to a bimonthly publication schedule. To tell you the truth, it is not easy to do so But I am finding a way.
Part of the inconsistancies is the lack of a consistent schedule on this site. I have not decided what content to put on here and on what schedule. That is still a work in progress itself.
I have done some soul searching and thinking after putting out that last post and ambitious publishing schedule. I have cut back on the schedule. At the same time, I am rebranding all my characters and universes into one much larger universe called the Metaverse.
It is called the Metaverse because all non-humans are classified as Metas, whether they be Vampire, Lycan, Witch, Faeries, Elves, or Alien. The are policed by their own force called Metapol.
At first the Metaverse will start on Earth. Eventually, it will spread out into the unknown universe in the stars above. Some of my favorite characters from previous incarnations of books written will make their appearance.
The schedule is written through October 2021. But it is not set in stone.
Every Saga out there needs a schedule.
I love writing and am ver ambitious.
Eventually, I will find a way to tie in all of my books and their sagas to one another.
For now, however, I wish to explore each of these sagas separately.
But in the process of wanting to explore these universes separately, I have schedules set for every saga through the end of 2020.
It may be early to decide this, but I think it is the right decision so that I know what is coming and how it is going to go.
I now present the schedules:
SOUTHERN PARANORMALS will follow a FEB. - MAY - AUG - NOV schedule after this year's last novel, Mind Games, emerges in October.
2018 will show the releases of Grimoire of Darkness, Order of the Blue Moon: A Moontripper Novel, Arcanum: Return of the Dark Sisters, and Mind Games: Continue On.
2019 releases: the Phoenix Hunter: Being Hunted, Arcanum III, Curse of the Blood Moon: A Moontripper Novel, and the Phoenix Hunter: On the Hunt.
2020 releases will show the first of new titles and characters in this saga with Sorensen, P.I.; Mind Games: The Rules Change, Love Bytes, and Southern Hospitality
ODYSSEY * STAR, which is just beginning in 2017, will follow a MAR - JUNE- SEPT - DEC schedule.

This summer is the first time that I have things going at full speed.
Things are going well, when they go well.
Otherwise, they are just crap.
Anyways, I will cut down my time blogging to a Monday - Wednesday - Friday schedule.
In the fall, I will go to a Monday through Friday schedule will themed posts on each day along with news popping in whenever.
I have, yet, to determine what those themed posts will be. Some ideas I am playing with include stories, tips, reviews, character bios, and more...
Also, there will be a new logo on this site as well as an updated site address to streamline everything in the near future.
Talk to you later

I am always updating this site with the latest information on my books and what it to come.
Currently this site is being overhauled in design and function.
If you look in the menu under books, you can see that the Heroes + Villains section is missing
That is really only temporary.
It will soon be Intrepid Heroes instead.
I am fixing the pages for the books in the Odyssey * Star and Southern Paranormals sections.
In the future there will be articles on who and what are in these sagas.
Likely the links will lead to other weebly sites on here so that you can more specialized info on them.
As for the progress on the writing:
Southern Paranormals: Mind Games is 3 chapters deep.
Odyssey * Star: Chronicles i: The Alpha Conflict is 5 chapters deep.
There are most certainly other books in the works for these sagas as the afore mentioned Intrepid Heroes sagas along with some other works that are there that do not fit into any of the above.
You can find the first three Southern Paranormals books at your favorite ebook retailers.
Working on putting First Moonlight into paperback form shortly.
As of Friday, June 16th, 2017... Southern Paranormals: Rogue Wolf is live and available for purchase at your favorite online retailer. Well nearly all.
You can find Rogue Wolf at:
Coming soon in paperback form and to Smashwords in digital form
Southern Paranormals shared universe has a site that just placed its first post.
Check it out here
I have been working on the site for a couple of days now.
Had the spot reserved for some time.
I just had not done any work on it.
Now I will do more work on there than here in the upcoming months.
I am bringing all my ideas for books into this series.
I may change the shared universe series in the near future, but this is the name until then.
I have scheduled books to follow a certain pattern throughout the next couple of years. Reaching March 2019, so far. I am sure that things will go on further. This is all I have for now. There will be collections of books in each of the series as well.
Each series is set for now.
Southern Hospitality monthly in the online magazine Darkness Within eZine.
These titles are not set in stone. But I believe them to be set up for some time. I believe in the story lines that I am working on. The Epilogue and interludes in these books will set up certain things that can happen down the line. Somethings may have far reaching effects in their series. There are more characters and stories to come in each of these series. Each series will expand and grow into their own wild and crazy universes with the possibility to cross over from one universe to the other.
I have plenty of stories within me to keep these series going for a long time.
Also, as I continue writing these series, I will find a way to get them put onto their own websites connected to this one.
Heroes + Villains is the new superhero series that I began writing a few days ago.
The H + V universe is starting with the superhero known as White Knight.
The first book is the origin of the superhero known as White Knight. His story will lead up to the formation of The Elites, an elite squad of superheroes that are sanctioned by the US Government to do things that they cannot.
White Knight is the first superhero in a long line of superheroes and villains from the publisher of Odyssey * Star and Southern Paranormals. There is a possibility of characters from the other two series showing up in Heroes + Villains. I have, yet, to figure this out, but it will fit as the story dictates it.
Time will tell how the three series and possibly others combine to make a long range overall story that fits all together.
They are all vastly different stories with different genre types: High Tech Fantasy / Science Fantasy / Space Fantasy (Odyssey * Star), Paranormal / Urban Fantasy (Southern Paranormals), and Superhero (Heroes + Villains).
I cannot wait to find a way to weave this all together in an epic spanning story will all my characters involved.
