just a short note


I'm currently busy preparing the christening of my youngest daughter, so I haven't got much time for the Internet. Still, I stumbled over an incredible booktrailer. Maybe, some of you have already seen it? It's awesome! For the first time ever, I am contemplating buying a book just because I watched its trailer. I hope mine will be just as irresistible.

Enjoy the video,

Realisation of defeat


I finally have to admit (as it was probably obvious to most of my followers anyway), that I'll never be really good at blogging. I just don't get the "regular posting" routine. Whenever I remember that I've got a blog where I should post, I end up doing countless things instead.

The last two weeks, I spent with my kids (summer holidays) and wrote like a maniac whenever I had the time. I plan on releasing my first story through Independent Bookworm at the beginning of next month (BTW, you can join my list and get a free novel plus two short stories as a thank you) and the work seems to get more the more I do.

Is there anyone out there who can double the length of a day? Or someone who'll take my kids for a few hours? I'm longing for school to start again. As much as I love my kids, I miss my regular writing hours. At least, the move of my webpage is nearly complete. I'll let you know when the site goes up so you can check it out.

That's it for now. I am sure that my bloggin will get a little more regular when school starts but I'm not too confident. Somehow, writing my novels seems more important at the moment.

Hope your summer writing/reading runs more smoothly than mine.
Enjoy the day despite drawbacks,

Going Indie 3

It's been a while since I posted but I hope you are still looking in once in a while.

Now, it's official. my friends and I opened an independent publishing company named Independent Bookworm(TM). The first two stories by my colleague William L. Hahn are already out. He writes heroic fantasy. Debbie Mumford will publish next, she concentrates on romance and fantasy (usually with a historical angle). I'll go life with a full 90K novel at the beginning of next month, depending on when my book trailer is done (yes, someone is making a truly great booktrailer for me, and she's so good... I'll promote her in a different blogpost. Promised).

If you are interested in reading stories from Will, Debbie or me, join our mailing list. You'll get a free eBook with my novelette "The Witches of Greenwitch" (incl. 52 pictures and the reason why I wrote the story in the first place) plus a short story each from Will and Debbie.

I'm looking forward to hear from you,
