First Internet Sale!


The excitement of selling your novel is extraordinary. I’ve had some “pre-publication-orders” from people who’ve read METAL MAN WALKING, but this morning a friend of mine from WordPress actually went out on a limb and purchased my novel, ANNIE DREAMING from directly. Now, that’s awesome. (Thanks, Michael!)

I realize that it’s hard to go out on that limb and buy a novel from some ‘unknown’ author. But, I can tell you without equivocation, that I’m a fine writer.

God gifted me with this talent, and I love Him for it. I thank Him every day – heck, almost every waking minute – with my love of language – yes, specifically the English language. I ask Him to help me be faithful in actually USING this gift!

I start STREET PREACHER on November 1st as part of NaNoWriMo 2012. I plan to write a rough draft of this new novel in 30 days. The aim is 50,000 words by midnight, November 30th, 2012.

Please pray for me!



Day 23: 49,202 Words

I’m excited about “winning” NaNoWriMo. I hear there’s a tee-shirt I can buy! And I’ve got more award badges to iron-on my blue jean jacket! I may finish the 50,000 words tonight, but even if I don’t, I will write the last 798 words sometime.

However, METAL MAN WALKING will not be complete when it reaches 50,000 words for the story is not over yet.

I keep writing; will you keep reading?

32,405 Words

I couldn’t sleep last night, so I wrote more in Chapter Twenty-Four: Still Walking, fleshing out Cindy. Her story is based in reality, by the way. I’ll blog about that on ‘obsecrations’ when this novel is finished. Deal? Deal. In the meantime, enjoy!
