Crow Creek, book 2 of the Bettendorf Tales, is now available for pre-order for the Kindle version. Get over there to order your copy today, and it will be delivered to your Kindle account on May 29th. It would be great to see a massive surge in pre-sales to drive those Amazon algorithms crazy. Go HERE to pre-order your copy! Spread the word. The more pre-orders a book gets, the higher chance it has of winding up on Amazon/Kindle promos and emails.
Paperback pre-orders will begin within the next couple of weeks. For the time being, Crow Creek is Amazon-exclusive, but I do intend to expand distribution in the coming months. If you are with a library, message me, and we can work out getting your library some copies in the meantime.
I continue to work with my editor on the final finishing touches, and it’s looking good. I think this book moves along briskly with some good action and a nice pace. It really sets up the storyline for book 3. There’s still a bit of work to be done, but I can say I’m starting to get excited about releasing Crow Creek. We’re not there yet but getting close, which is a good thing since I have a deadline now!

DUN DUN DUUUUUUN!!!
Here it is! The new cover for Crow Creek. I think it fits well with the cover of the first book and looks good. It’s kinda creepy but kinda magical too, which works for this story.
Hello everyone! It’s been a very hectic Fall, but here we are with the holidays upon us. What a whirlwind year it has been, and we still have another month to go! This year we have a lot to be thankful for–from a new book released to a short story published to Michelle’s pinstripe purses selling to Reznor playing football and getting fantastic grades to our Tahoe honeymoon to our brand new dog, Rosie! It’s been a lot of fun, but now we’re exhausted and need some R and R this holiday season.
Thanks to all of you who came out for the book signing in October–seems like that was six months ago! We had a nice turnout and sold almost all of the books I brought with me. It was a lot of fun hanging out with old friends down at Sports Fans Pizza in Bettendorf and getting to speak at St. Ambrose and Bettendorf High School. And of course getting to be at my nephew’s wedding was the icing on the cake! Continue reading
Michelle and I finally got to take our honeymoon last month and I have to say it was amazing, though it seriously needed to be longer. Seven days in Lake Tahoe is just not enough–I want to go back now! The scenery was mind-blowing and staying in a cabin on the lake is just crazy fun. The photo above was taken at Sugar Pine Point State Park, which was about ten minutes from our cabin. The water in Lake Tahoe is crystal clear, almost like you’re in Hawaii or the Carribean.

Hey everyone! So sorry, it’s been a crazy long time since my last post–I can’t believe the last time I posted was in April!
Things have been great. Devils Glen has sold pretty well, so far, and people from all over the country have reached out to let me know how much they liked the book. Word of mouth grows, little by little, and the wonderful reviews have certainly helped. If you haven’t had a chance to leave a review on Amazon, please do!
Kindle Scout is a fantastic program and it’s definitely something any aspiring author should consider. Unfortunately, the process is a little confusing when you first get started and there’s some conflicting information out there on the internet, so I thought I’d give my own advice on the subject. Don’t get me wrong…just because Devils Glen won a contract, doesn’t mean I’m an expert. But I think it might be worthwhile for me to give my thoughts and share some tips I picked up along the way.
