Three Burning Red Runaway Brides is Done...and so begins the edits!

Hi all,

Last week I finished writing THREE BURNING RED RUNAWAY BRIDES, Book 3 in The Water Kingdom Series. I did not want to post anything until today, when I finished re-reading it.

And making a few changes.

So far, this draft is at 96,200 words. I wrote those last 45,000 words in one month....yeah... 3,000 and 5,000 word count days. I killed it.

The book is now being edited. So I will have some time off, to think about changes before I finalize it and start the publishing process.

The cover artwork is done. I can look to reveal that soon too. Maybe in Oct.

This was a true goal for me. To write and have a series published. I tried to meet that goal with Soul Born...but book one and two were published and books three and four were not. Hopefully that can happen in the future now that Soul Born has a new publisher.

Sabrina London... For the most part, her story ends with this book. If she returns in the next series, The Fire Kingdom Series, it would be in an unexpected way. You have to read to find out.

Expect to see Moselle, Jackson, Dunyasha, Joe, H.B. and others in book 3. And a few new characters.

I can't wait to get it out there and hear peoples reviews. Until then, please, read and review the first two books if you have not. I need more reviews! :)

Thanks all.

RPGs shaped my foundation as an artist and author. Part 1 - Tabletop Games.

Hi all,


Sometimes, I get asked about my RPG background. I have written articles and posts about it. But let me take a brief moment to talk about it again. It is an important part of my foundation as an author and artist.

In the early 1980s, when I was in grade school, my neighbor Matt Zelesko (a few years older than me) gave me the D&D Monster Manual for my birthday. The artwork inside was incredible and I was instantly hooked.

I still own my hardbound books!
I made my mother take me to hobby stores where they sold D&D stuff. At the time, the local Village Mall had a hobby store and I was able to buy books, games, modules, and miniatures there. I was in heaven.

I stared at those books for hours and hours. I took them to school. I drew from them...they kept me VERY busy.

Some of my favorites.
I played D&D and Top Secret for a few years with my neighborhood friends. It was abridged rules, I'm sure. I mean we used the books as a guideline to tell stories, roll dice, laugh and have tons of fun.

Later, I discovered CAR WARS and that was my newest obsession. Not so much for the artwork and cool stories, but for the intensely fun and addicting game play.

Much love.
With CAR WARS, I was actually able to fully understand the rules of and make the game work. It was amazing. My friends and I played this one for years, off and on, from the 1980s and 1990s. Even into the early 2000s when we had a massive 10 game tournament.  (I won)

In college, we discovered White Wolf Publishing and one by one me and my friends had a new even bigger obsession. The books read like novels with some game instruction and some choose-your-own-adventure mixed in. They were skillfully written and designed. They were unlike anything I had ever seen in the RPG world.

Love this book.


Once again, I was traveling with my RPG books. I took Vampire: The Masquerade to school with me everyday. I read it between classes, drew from the pictures, studied it. It really shaped me as an author.

Two of my other friends...they knew the release dates of each coming book. They waited and rushed out to get each one as soon as it was available. I swear my one friend was late to work because of being at the bookstore getting...I think it was WRAITH, lol.

Sadly, I have not played any tabletop games in about 10 years.

Since I moved, and left my childhood friends on the East Coast, I have had little desire to. Those friends were my family and these games were something I shared with them. So playing with new people--strangers, would feel wrong.

That all being said, I do wish to write for a RPG game system. I want to rekindle that love...that magical feeling...but this time I want to step back into those fantasy worlds as a creator. I want to craft these worlds and universes for people like myself when I was younger and carrying the books around like they were filled with treasures.  Because they were and they still are.

I opened up one of my books not long ago. The Deities and Demigods one. Instantly, I got lost in the pages just like I did when I was a kid. That book still has its magic and THAT is amazing.


Thanks all,
