Be Creative! Be, Be Creative!

I still wish I had a quill and ink.

There’s nothing like starting a new project. I’ve worked on The Kris Grant Series for so long now, that it feels great working on something new.

With Daylight Hours and Moonlit Miles out for people to read, I figured it was time to step back for a while and try something else. I love writing third-person and having total freedom with the direction of the story. The Kris Grant Series was my first attempt at a first-person story-telling on such a big scale, and while I love the character of Kris Grant, it’s refreshing to have different perspectives.

This new project I’m working on is really getting my creative processes flowing again. It’s always a good sign when you’re passionate about what you’re working on. The hard part isn’t coming up with a great story, it’s getting it all down on paper.

To all my fellow writers out there, if you sit down and write for three hours and it feels like ten minutes, you’ve tapped into something special. It’s an amazing feeling and I hope I never lose that little piece of real-life magic.

On a side note — and a very important one at that — I want to thank everyone for their support with the release of Moonlit Miles. It was a long process to get that sequel made and I hope that everyone who has downloaded it or Daylight Hours, enjoys them both.

Kris Grant is the type of character that is almost effortless for me to write. That sounds like a good thing, but right now in my life, I want to push myself and hone my craft and experiment a little. The Kris Grant Series has only just begun with the first two novels in the series. I have the first 5 novels mapped out. I promise that I will return to that universe when the time is right. Who knows? Maybe I’ll even throw a few short stories out there for fans in the meantime. That universe has limitless possibilities for stories and not all of them have to revolve around Kris Grant; even though he would probably disagree.

Thank you, everyone.

Now, back to the dungeon.

What To Do?

It’s one of those nights when you get off work and you just want to relax.

I pushed my way through some exercise at home–and that’s after running this morning before work–and I even managed to edit a chapter. Work is done for the day and so am I.

I can honestly say that despite my passion for movies, I’ve never gone to the movies by myself. Tonight, I think I will be breaking that record and going to see Silver Linings Playbook. It’s either that or stay at home and watch Shame, starring Michael Fassbender.

Both movies look incredible and it really comes down to whether or not I’m too lazy to get in the car and sit by myself in a theater because no one I know wants to go see Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for two hours. The fools. I’m not sure which I’ll decide to do, but I can promise a review for Silver Linings Playbook on The Now if I go see that.

I just hope I don’t get raped on my night on on the town by my lonesome. That would be horrible. And probably ruin my Valentine’s Day plans considerably.

Daylight Hours is Free! Happy Birthday, Me

Click here to buy Daylight Hours for FREE!

It’s finally here! The 17th. The quintessential day of the year. I’m twenty-four, although I look 28 and I act like I’m thirteen.

Today is my one day sale and Daylight Hours is FREE. I hope that everyone and anyone goes out and downloads my first novel. It’s as easy as clicking a button.

If you’re a fan of vampires or paranormal thrillers, then read my novel. It’s a blend of wit, action, and mystery. It’s also the first book in The Kris Grant Series, with the second one coming out soon.

Once again, it’s my birthday wish from people from all over the world to take a chance on my novel and review it. I want to grow and strive as an author and I’m grateful for the…holy shit…I just looked up the number of downloads I’ve gotten from this free promotion and I’m at…

115 DOWNLOADS!?!?!

And it’s only ten in the morning! (I apologize for all of the exclamation marks in this post)

I honestly can’t express how amazed and stunned I am at seeing that. I’m sure that anyone else reading this who’s put up a book on Kindle is thinking, “That’s nothing.” and maybe it is, but screw those people because knowing that 115 people have downloaded my book has honestly just made my day.

Thank you everyone and keep them coming. Please, spread the news. Grant one high-functioning autistic child’s wishes of one day becoming a successful author by checking out his first novel and reviewing it. And thank you again for the 115 people who’ve downloaded Daylight Hours today so far because you’ve given me the best surprise birthday gift I could hope to get.

This is pretty great news considering I finally have the chance to just give the book away to people. Spread the word, everyone. The first novel in The Kris Grant Series is on its way to rising up the ranks. I’m determined to make it a best-seller this year with these free promotions and Kindle exclusivity.

I still have chapters of the book posted on this site as well, so check it out in advance.

Just remember, there’s nothing wrong with supporting an indie author and downloading a free eBook with the click of a mouse or the tap of a finger. I mean, I’m kind of counting on it. So save the date. January 17, 2013: Free Kindle Book Day! For my book at least.
