Crazy Journey

Path to Victory BookThe past few years have been a bit hectic, and I think I fell into writing as much to preserve my sanity as any other reason. Now that things have settled down, and I have a schedule that doesn’t kill me, I’ve embarked on a plan to rewrite and re-release The Chronicles of Ethan Grimley III. I have to say that I’m much happier with the new versions of the stories.

Book one, now titled Path to Victory, (Thank you to a seven-year-old reader of the original for suggesting it.) will release on June 19, 2018. The first three chapters are available to read on my website, and I’ve almost finished the rewrite of book two, Tainted Victory.

Tainted Victory BookI know a lot of people don’t like rewriting books, but I’ve found this to be quite enjoyable. I’ve been able to explore Ethan’s character and the world of Grevared much more than when I was first writing the stories. While I won’t rewrite the two adult books, Wolf in the Shadow and Aradia’s Secret, (mostly because they’ve already been done a couple of times), I think redoing Ethan will give me a better handle on the other books in the Gwennyth Grimsbane series and (okay, let’s not hold our breaths here) on the trilogy that started the world to start with (it takes place twenty years after Wolf in the Shadow).

Path's End BookThanks to those who’ve stuck by this crazy ride so far. I hope you’ll continue to do so.

Best wishes!

Writing Update

Ethan VintageDoes anyone know of a twelve year old boy who isn’t sometimes a pain? I raised three of them and taught sixth grade, so I know that age can be challenging. Well, Ethan is no different.

I’d intended to make all three of The Chronicles of Ethan Grimley III books into one book and tell the story from start to finish, but, apparently, Ethan has other ideas. He just can’t seem to stay out of trouble long enough to make one book, so it looks like I’ll be keeping it as a trilogy and just make the three books a set inside the larger series.

All that being said, I’ve finished the first draft rewrite of book one and am in the revision process. I’m hoping to have that book out in June, if Ethan behaves himself and does what he’s supposed to.

Thanks to all those who’ve supported Ethan up until this point. I hope you’ll continue to check back and see how things are coming. For those who like to be part of the process, I’ve got a page on my website with some possible covers. I’d love some opinions on them.

Best wishes!

A Walker is Born

https://books2read.com/u/mVDKrb

Those who’ve been around a while know that the first book in The Chronicles of Ethan Grimley III is A Walker is Born. Since book three is coming out this October, I decided to make the first book permanently free where I could. The above link is for the platforms where it is free. Hopefully, it won’t be long before I can have it free on Amazon as well.

Best wishes!

The Chronicles of Ethan Grimley III

I was concerned that I might not get book three, Revenge of Cronus finished in time to release in October, but it looks like I’m right on track. That being the case, I went ahead and did a trailer for it. Hope you enjoy.

Best wishes!
