News from the Writing Cave- Upcoming Events, What’s New at the Cave, and Pre-orders for The Witcher Chime are Rolling In!

Happy Wednesday from The Writing Cave!

I’m working on the rewrite for PHANTOM LIMB ITCH right now and it’s crazy exciting to see how The Fate and Fire Trilogy will progress with the release of Book 2. My publisher is gearing up over at Strigidae Publishing and they’ve hinted about the cover design. Cover reveals are one of my favorite parts of the process. A good cover will be relevant and encompass a project in an image. They nailed it with SCALES. I’m dying to see the cover for PHANTOM!

This is the first opportunity to purchase The Witcher Chime. This is also the first time I’ve ever been a part of a pre-order campaign for one of my projects, so it’s pretty exciting for me. You can pre-order the book at Amazon for release on July 31.

In 1922 and in 1988 a deadly, possessive entity imprints on members of the same family, ancient as Genesis and determined to be free. Savannah Caleman is the latest object of obsession in this chilling, historical tale of haunted legacy and terror.


I had a cool local book signing at The Bookman in Old Colorado City recently and I met some great people! If you’re a new subscriber who signed up for my newsletter at that event, welcome!

What’s next?

I’ll be speaking at the Pueblo West Library in Pueblo, Colorado, Saturday, July 23rd from 10-12. We’ll cover topics like pitching projects to publishers, and other important issues for writers. I’ll also have a few books on hand for signing. Come on out!

Thanks and happy reading!


The Witcher Chime

I’ve wanted to write this story for about five years. Originally, I thought it would be a mammoth size book of about 300,000 words, although with the way the market has changed and my ability to tighten the story, I have changed the projected word count to 90 K. I hope this is a good thing.
