The Deafening Silence Broken

A Labor of Love: Writing Help From an Awesome Indie Author

It’s really no secret that I’m a fan of Adam Dreece‘s work. So, I’d like to offer anyone who slips through here this Valentine’s Day (or any other, to be frank) a gentle nudge to make Adam Dreece’s blog part of one’s writer’s arsenal (and his books part of one’s ebook or paperback library).

On a Series’s Note: Life in Marginalia

Well, I am still working on Man and Brother, which does not appear to be coming out this year. I’d like to explain the delay, especially since I’ve been working on it over the past year and have just not had it come together as quickly as the previous book.
