If you’re living in Florida, you might be upset about the rest of the country picking the next President without you. After all, every vote counts so long as you can get people to the polls on time and get the ballots in…on time. I can only imagine how frustrated people still voting at ten-thirty last night must’ve felt when the news came in that Obama was PODUS again. Maybe next election the state can get their shit together.
Politics aside, it’s a new Wednesday, and that means another chapter of Daylight Hours was posted here this morning.
Another fun fact, Taking Back Sunday are doing their Tell All Your Friends tour and will be playing tonight at Revolution in Ft. Lauderdale with Bayside and Transit. I don’t really care for either of the other bands, but I’ve never seen Taking Back Sunday before and I’m excited to see how they do. I’m expecting an amazing show. Can’t wait for “Ghost Man On Third”!
It’s already October 22nd. Where did the entire month go?
Work had been hectic and sleep is a novelty that I have forsaken recently. I blame both Time and Sleep for the lateness with which I am bringing everyone the next FREE chapter of Daylight Hours. It’s Monday after all and so Chapter 7 is finally here!
I apologize for not posting the chapter sooner for any and all readers.
Fun fact, Minus The Bear is playing tonight at Revolution in Fort Lauderdale and I’ll be there with the Mrs. and my closest friends. It’s my first time seeing the band perform, so I’m excited to see them as well as Cursive.
The weather’s beautiful and it may be nearing the end of October, but it’s looking like a great day so far.
…of time that is.
The first week of school is finally over and so another semester at FAU begins. There’s only fifteen weeks to go, but who’s counting?
I’m not going to let my education get in the way of my writing. Time to start juggling reading assignments and papers so I can edit and work as much as I can on getting the second book of “The Daylight Hours Series” published. Wish me luck.
P.S. I’m going to start taking caffeine intravenously this semester so if anyone knows where I can get a decent syringe, let me know. I keep sharing needles with some of my friends, but I hate being that guy.
I literally just finished writing the first draft of the second book in my Daylight Hours Series!
There’s nothing like the feeling I get when I finish a project. It’s the kind of fulfillment I don’t get any other time in my life. This is the kind of work that I love and really care about because it energizes me.
I work at 7:45 in the morning until 3:00pm and then I have to drive up for my first class by 4:00 to start the new semester at FAU. I’m going to take two weeks off from writing now that I’ve reached my goal and finished the sequel before school started. I’m going to use these two weeks to promote Daylight Hours, the first book in the series and try getting it exposed to more people. After that two weeks of “vacation”, I’ll be back to revising and editing the second book and starting the whole process of getting that ready for publication.
It’s hard to put down in words how amazing it feels to write the closing line of a novel and how incredible it is to just accomplish the goals you set. I really have to expand my reach to readers all over the country, let alone South Florida. I’m asking for anyone who sees this blog to post a link to this on their wall on Facebook or to retweet this post on Twitter to as many people as you can who love reading.
Daylight Hours is available for the Nook and Kindle for only $2.99. If you want to see an original take on an old concept, read Daylight Hours now to meet Kris Grant and see Vampires in a whole new light.
Thank you everyone for your support. This business is all about getting your name out to people and getting the novel into the hands of readers. So please, spread the word. As long as I get to entertain or motivate one person to start writing or reading, then I’m accomplishing what I set out to do.
