A fourth Arcadis book is due out soon!

The fourth Arcadis book called Arcadis: Emperor Of All, Emperor Of None is currently being formatted so I can create print books, and E-books.
Arcadis keeps getting himself into more trouble!
I really, really enjoy writing about the infamous sorcerer and his trials and tribulations. I will continue to write about him until I feel it's time to stop.
Many people enjoy the adventures of Arcadis, and so can you!

Where is Arcadis Headed?

Where is my main character Arcadis, of the Arcacis series, headed? I am writing the fifth installment  now, and I have an idea for the sixth book with an introduction of a new character I am creating. He will get to know Arcadis (I am working out the details in my head), and then the new character will have his own stand alone series.
Where and when I complete the Arcadis series? I have no idea. I still enjoy writing about his exploits. I would love to further my reach with merchandise, role playing games, and eventually a movie. Whether it be animated or a full feature film is immaterial at this juncture. I have a long way to go but I am really enjoying my time as a writer and as an author!
Please click on the link(s) below and purchase a copy! Thank you.

Book Siging Today

I had a book signing today from noon to three in Greenfield, Indiana. The turnout wasn't as good as I had hoped for, but everyone was friendly.
Currently I have three Arcadis books out with the fourth in the final edits. My fifth Arcadis book is still being written. I am trying in vain to finish this book before the end of the month. It's a goal I had set for myself. We'll see if I can achieve it.
If you're interested, and I know you are, here is the link to the Arcadis' books:

I hope to hear from you soon!

Loan Me, Reviews & Finances

Every once in a while we all get behind on our bills. Sometimes we are able to pay the minimum payment, sometimes we can't, and fall behind. It's the way of the world. However, being in debt doesn't have to be a thorn in our side any longer. There are options. Viable options, which should be looked at with unwavering interest.
Since people of all walks of life inevitably spend more than they bring in, including yours truly, I thought it prudent to find out what we can do about it. I recently came across an interesting website that should alleviate the feeling of drowning in debt, whether it be from credit cards or mortgages.
Reviews is the site, and could help.
Every now and then answers to our money quandaries come at the most opportune times. All of us need alternative and practical choices to help us get back on our feet financially.

Process of writing fifth Arcadis book

I am in the process of writing my fifth book of Arcadis fantasy book. It has been a arduous, yet joyous, time in my life. I really enjoy writing, and to see people purchase my books are beyond words.
The demographics is from age 12-85. People of that age group, I am told by my readers, love my first two books of Arcadis, as I have not yet published the third.Why? Time constraints, book signings, and needing money upfront are an obstacle but not an insurmountable one. I shall prevail!
If you're interested (and really, why wouldn't you be??) here are the links to buy my two books.

Second Book In The Arcadis Series Is Available For Purchase!

I can't tell you how much accomplishment I feel when I see my books I've written online. Additionally, when books arrive at my doorstep for me to start selling, it makes me realize the extent of how far I've come over the years as a writer/author.
My two fantasy books are available for purchase, but did you know I have two books of poetry online? I also have two books online concerning the discussions I have had with my daughter from age five to nine that are hysterical and profound? Click on the links to purchase and to find out more!

Proof Copies Of My Book Came Today

The proof copy of my book: Arcadis: Prophecy came in the mail today. I expected to open it up, read it and approve it so I can get my book out there.
Well, I opened my book and the typeset looked like someone used a typewriter on it. Very disappointed. Now I have to have it redone.
Another delay. I really wanted this book out by Christmas and it's almost Thanksgiving! I am hoping everything works out and it can be released soon.
In the meantime, I plug away reading and writing.

What A Learning Curve!

I tried to format a PDF file from 8.5"x11" to 6"x9" but could not. Yet another delay in the world of self publishing. I had to outsource it because I want it completed correctly.
The self publishing arena is very interesting as I learn from my experiences.
When my second book is ready for me to publish, it should not take nearly as long
as the first one.
Hopefully by tomorrow the file will be correct, uploaded and ready for viewing.

Created a facebook page

I created a facebook page today for the main character of (as of right now) four novellas. His name is Arcadis.
It has been an absolute joy writing him and creating scenarios in which Arcadis has to get out of almost impossible situations.
When the first Arcadis book comes out, I think I will celebrate with my family!

Anticipation for what, you may ask. I am really hoping and crossing my fingers that, by the end of next month, I will have the first out of at least five novellas published.
If everything goes according to plan, I will have eBooks and print books available for purchase. Hence the title for this post.
I will provide more details as they become available. Suffice to say, I am excited, barely sleeping, nervous and biting my nails in anticipation.

How Many Ebooks Are Typically Sold On Amazon?

I read a forum where a writer said the average person only sells seventy-six copies of their ebooks on amazon.
While he did not cite any evidence, it made me think. I wonder if that statement is true or false. Obviously some will sell more while others will sell less, but is that disappointing number true?
It would be rude to ask writers how many copies their books sold, but I would be very interested in knowing. I would tend to think writers believe they will sell more, a great deal more. The same holds true for this writer... I wonder.

How Long Is A Novella?

I finally finished my fourth novella and will soon begin the fifth in the saga.
Finishing the most recent fantasy novella left me wondering. Exactly how many
words are considered to be a novella? All of the four have over 25,000 words.

Writers Digest suggests: "Novellas generally run 20,000-50,000 words. About 30,000 words is average."
The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America suggests:
Classification Word count
Novel over 40,000 words
Novella 17,500 to 40,000 words
Novelette 7,500 to 17,500 words
Short story under 7,500 words

I wrote over seven thousand words within two days

Over the course of two days, I have been a writing fiend! I am in my fourth sci fantasy novella and I believe I may have to extend it to a fifth book. I keep adding content that will force an additional book to end the saga!
Please take note to your right. I have taken the liberty of hyperlinking the two books I wrote about my daughter and our conversations. They're available on amazon.
Take a moment and purchase them, you won't be sorry! As a matter of fact, you may be enthralled on what goes on inside my daughter's mind!

In My Fourth Novella

In the past year I have written an additional two novellas.
Each book pertains to the previous one.
I hope to have them edited and published both through amazon and
My goal is to have the first one completed by December 2014!
I have several short stories in which I will probably will publish
next year sometime.
Next year I plan on being very busy!

Update On Novellas

While I have finished the two novellas in the science fantasy genre, I have yet to start writing the third installment. The time allocated for writing has diminished since my shift change at work.
I was thinking of making the novellas into graphic novels but can't draw. Interesting quandary.
Perhaps posting on Craigslist could help but I wouldn't be able to pay anyone upfront. Perhaps a negotiated percentage of the profit would entice an upstart illustrator?

When I speak to people and say I am writing a series of novellas, they look at me strangely. I often forget some people don't know there is a difference dependent upon word count.
Typically, for the general lay person, I explain there are flash fiction, short stories, novellas and then novels.
Right now I have finished two novellas in the science fantasy genre. I enjoyed writing in a different venue and will write the third, perhaps even four novella based on the main character.
I'll keep you posted!
