- Got a check from James Bell yesterday, I contributed to his book that will be coming out – I think sometime this Summer, “Jesus Talked to Me”. I am supposed to be getting an advance copy and I’ll post a review when I’ve finished reading it.
- We’re continuing to write – my goal this year is a thousand words a day (every day) and so far we’ve kept that up.
- In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be working on making a paperback of The Incident with black and white images, that should bring the cost of the paperback down quite a bit. I knew that adding color images would cause the price to increase a bit, but I was wrong, it made it much more expensive.
- Dad continues to do well – his 80th birthday is this week and we’ll be celebrating!
1. With Amazon I have a minimum amount I can charge. I have used the minimum for the soft cover and it is still expensive, because of the color images.
2. The ebook will be free, probably in the middle of November and then after Christmas. Follow my facebook page and you’ll find the latest updates and when prices change. Here is the link to the FB page – https://www.facebook.com/12Guardians

Hope your Summer is going well. I can’t believe that it is already July, it is speeding by so fast.
My daughter Haley brought the newest member of our family to our house this past weekend. She named him Riley and he is a stinker!! We took him for his second vet visit yesterday, and he slept through the whole thing. All of our other dogs really hate to go to the vet, they are whining and carrying on. Sawyer the Schnauzer climbs in my lap. Riley was not impressed at all.
We’re continuing to edit the 12 Guardians, we’ve also started on our latest book, which is a story about my Dad. As you know he was injured last October, was in ICU for a month or so, we spent from Oct 19th to Jan 22nd in one healtchare facility or another. We had twice a week rehab for a couple of months after that and today is preaching and almost back to his old routine. Next week he plans on flying to Oregon. We’ll be telling our families story and hopefully someone may get some comfort and / or hope from it.
What have you been up to this summer?
It feels like summer here in Kentucky. Temps in the afternoon hover around 100 on my back porch and the humidity feels like it is that high as well.
We’re continue to work on reading (and taking notes) for the first five books. The reason we’re doing that is so that we don’t make any goofs in the future books. It is time consuming, but I think it will be worth it in the long run.
Also we’ve started working on a new project, we’re going to be writing a book about my Dad (a nonfiction one), I’ve had more than a few requests to do that and so we are doing it.
I hope you’re enjoying your summer!
So the contract has arrived. The book will be published October / November of this year. Don’t worry I’ll make sure to post a link. It was pretty standard, giving them the rights to the little story in any type of book / audio. I keep the rights to any movie deals :-). Like I mentioned before the main reason I did this was to get some new eyes looking at the 12 Guardians, we’ll see if my experiment works or not.
The lady I’ve been working with also explained that while they have the rights to the story I’ve written, they don’t have the rights to the experience, the thing that happened to me when I was seven, which the story is based on. This made me feel much better.
This week I’ve also started reviewing the first books of my series, this is to make sure that I don’t goof in future books. If things go according to plans then we’ll start editing book six in July. Enjoy your week!
I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. This weekend (Friday – Sunday) in honor of Mother’s Day ( I love my Mom!) we’re giving away a digital copy of our book – 12 Guardians – the first three. You can find it here.

I just wanted to give you a quick update.
On October 18th my Dad had a accident. He cracked his skull, broke 5 ribs, and cracked two vertebraes in his back. Since then he has spent some time in the local hospital, then was flown to a larger hospital in Lexington KY. He spent some time on the vent, had surgery on his back, and is now stable. Currently he is off the vent, he has a trach, and NG tube for feeding he is more alert now, but it has been a slow process and will continue to be a marathon instead of a sprint.
I am continuing to write, although the process is a bit slower. I hope that soon he will be doing his physical therapy (in patient) at a local hospital. If that happens it would make it much easier since we don’t have to travel two hours (one way) to see him.
In this month of Thankfulness, I’m thankful that he is still alive, and that we have been surrounded by a host of friends, family, loved ones who have supported us every step of the way. I can’t ask for anything more.
I will keep you posted as things happen. I had planned on having Book 6 finished, the editing for it hasn’t started yet. For those of you waiting I thank you for your patience.
We’re continuing to write book 9. Currently we’re at about 80,000 words. It’s not winding down yet, so not sure how long it will be. We should be finished with it in March.
We’ve started edits on Book 6 of our series. I’m not sure what the title is going to be yet.
We have thawed out for a few days. I can see the ground again, tomorrow we’re supposed to have severe storms and it’s supposed to be 70 degrees, then next week we go back into the freezer. Whenever I think that Spring is never going to get here, I’m reminded of the promise that God gave to Noah.
King James Version (KJV)
22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
Enjoy your week!
