Wow. It's been such a long time since I've posted. Before I got on to post this I thought my last post was about a year ago. It's been even longer than that. Time sure does fly by. I've received some emails asking where I've been and what I've been up to lately, since I've been silent such a long time and I've had no new books out. I took a break from writing for a while to just be a dad. I'm not retired, I'm not done writing, just was taking a break to be a father. I've got a 2 year old who's attached to my hip from morning to night, zapping any energy I have to write. Plus I have a 9 and 6 year old that I take to school, pick up from school, etc, etc.

So I'm not dead, not retired, not living on a deserted island without internet access...just taking a break. I've got plenty of ideas for books to be worked on and I would anticipate you'll probably be seeing 1-2 books released in 2016.

I'm horrible with social media...I really envy those who seem to have mastered all of it (blogs, twitter, facebook, etc.,etc.) I don't know how they do it. I will try to be better in the future though. Thanks to all those still buying my books and reading. I really appreciate it. Won't be too long before you'll have some new material.

The Protector

Just wanted to let users of Kobo and B&N know that my book The Protector will be available on those platforms in a few days. It was exclusive to Amazon but the sales there have been putrid and not worth keeping it there exclusively. It's got a few more days and then will be done. I'll throw up another post when it's actually live on the other sites. I'd appreciate everyone checking it out.
