Scion Chronicles Book 3 Update

By on May 7, 2015 in update | 0 comments

Hello, everyone. If you’re just finishing up Child of lies, you’re wondering when the next book will be out. If you finished a while ago, you’re probably going “oh, yeah, where the #$#! is that 3rd book? I’m dying to know what happens with Jacey, Humphrey, Belle, Livy, and Dr. Carlhagen.” I get messages every day about it, so I thought I’d post an update here where you will find it. A few people were worried that because I just posted the short story “Pinkie Beauty” to Amazon and other retailers that I was wasting time on non-Scion Chronicles stuff. Fear not! That was a story I wrote last year. I decided to post it because I wanted readers to have something new while they waited for the next Scions book. Okay, so where is book 3? I’m working on it. I really am. At the beginning of April I made a huuuuuuggggggeeee (i.e. big)...

1952 Olivetti-Underwood Studio 44

The 1952 date is based on info from typewriterdatabase.com. My Studio 44 is S#: 480xxx I found this beauty languishing in its filthy (I mean filthy) carrying case at a local antique shop. It looked cleaner there than it did when I got it home. But that’s always how it is. Well, it’s clean now and the sticky A and Q keys are working smoothly now thanks to this Typewriter Heaven post. I never would have figured it out otherwise. I shoulda taken a before and after photo of the case. It was just grody. Typing on this is a bit firmer than on my Smith Corona Silent or the Royal Quiet De Luxe, but it’s satisfying. The platen has turned into something a bit harder than granite, so I think that’s part of why it’s a bit on the loud side.

Eric’s 5 Golden Tips for Writers

By on Aug 30, 2014 in book release, Missives, writing | 0 comments

Warning: Long Post  September 1st, 2014 will be a big milestone for me. On that day my next novel, Child of Lies, will finally launch. Whew! It’s been a long, bumpy road to get to this point. I recently got to hold the first hardcover copy in my hands. Very emotional moment! This book was by far the most difficult one to write. Over the course of the last year, I’ve learned some really tough writing lessons. Since so many of my readers are also writers or aspiring writers, I thought I’d share. #1: Your Characters are Your Teachers I take pride in the fact that I never, ever, ever miss a deadline. My original intention was to have Child of Lies ready to release by April of 2014. I was confident after the launch of Daughter of Nothing that I would zip right through book 2, even though I had no idea what the plot was going to be. I tend to outline, and once I have a general idea, I can...
