How To Become a Non-Famous, Unknown, Published Indie Writer in Three Easy Steps!
So, Solaray Dawn is currently available to read, published in both paperback print and PDF ebook. It will take a few weeks for it to show up through the big distributors, but it’s available from the publisher’s site. So, there you go, Guy in Kentucky. I got ‘er out before Halloween, like I said I would.
I wish I had writer’s block. That would mean I want to write, that I crave to smear graphite or splatter ink all over some unsuspecting blank paper. No, this is worse. Crueler. More sinister. A familiar foe, yes, but rarely seen in the days leading up to my favorite autumnal activity.

I completed the clean-up of Solaray Dawn, and it seems to hold together. It looks like I am on-track for an October release. I’m just waiting on hard copies of the final product to release the bound book into print.
Dear Guy in Kentucky,
Welp, the third book in the Dome Trilogy is sitting right next to me. It has quite a few little plastic sticky flags poking out of from between its pages, like some modern art rendition of a porcupine. However, they’re minor errors (typos, forgotten letters) with only one big error–four pages formatted like a Choose Your Own Adventure book (183 to 186 to 184 to 185 to 187 … but the numbering on the actual pages is in order. Burr… what?). Continue reading “To A Guy in Kentucky, I’m Mrs. Unlucky . . .”
