A New Place to Purchase My Books – Elite Comics

I wanted to let everyone know that Elite Comics (one of the comic book shops that puts on Planet Comicon) is now stocking the Heirs of Cothel Series (Mother’s Curse, Daughter’s Justice, and Daughter’s Revenge).  Stop in some time to check out what they have.  They are at 11842 Quivira in Overland Park, KS.

Everyone there is great and next Saturday (3 My 2014) is free comic book day.  They always have a big event and while I’m not a featured person for the day, I plan to stop by at some point. (I’ll try to tweet/post to Facebook when I am there.)

Daughter's RevengeWith my third book, Daughter’s Revenge, now available, I can say my writing process has become more formalized and I am now able to do the actual ‘writing’ in just a few weeks.  It is amazing to look back upon what had once taken me years to do and is now no longer a daunting task.

I am not saying writing is easy; it can still be challenging at times, but the mechanics that used to get in my way are no longer the roadblocks under which I once suffered.  What is even more interesting is that the change was not as gradual as one might expect.  If fact, the change in my approach resulted in a rather sudden change in my output.

A little bit of background

When I first started writing, which was when I was in Jr. High, I approached writing very much as a ‘discover’ writer.  I had a vague concept of where the story was going, knew a little bit about the characters, but I needed to learn about the world, who was in it, and what was happening just as the characters did.  I often waited for my muse and when it struck, I’d rocket through a few chapters and then crash squarely into a wall.

Planet Comicon, here I come!

I am very pleased to announce that I will be at Planet Comicon this March!

I have a table in Artist Alley and will have all of my novels with their new covers.  Stop by to get an autograph and pick up a copy of the just released Daughter’s Revenge or the whole Heirs of Cothel Series.

If you are in the Kansas City area, come by and enjoy the fun.  This year there will again be a lot of celebrities, artists, and authors present. Below is the poster for the Con and that will give you a taste of whom to expect. Check out  Planet Comicon’s site to get the full details.
