Correction!!! Beneath Lies Beauty, available now…Better link!

Sorry..there appears to be an issue with needing a password to use the createspace URL to purchase Beneath Lies Beauty.

So, that said, just go ahead and buy it direct from my website–and in case you missed the earlier post, Beneath Lies Beauty is available for sale as of today!




Its Officially Available for Sale!!!

I am utterly pleased to announce that today marks the official release of Beneath Lies Beauty for sale.

At this point, you can get buy it here:


In the upcoming weeks it will be made available on amazon.com and also on my own website as well.

Its been quite a journey….

Disclaimer: I’ve proofed it nine ways to Sunday, please dont beat me over the head if you spot a typo somewhere…lol…



Second Proof On Its Way.

Finally I have finished the corrections and revisions for the second proof and it’s been reviewed and approved by the publisher, and an author proof is on its way. 

Keep your fingers crossed that this one is good and we can get this thing into everyone’s hands soon!

The Proof

Well, it might have passed review, but the proof did not pass MY review.  There’s some screw-ups that must be fixed before it can be printed on a large scale. This might push back the release date a week or so, but I wont officially change the date until I know for sure.

Passed Review! My Printed Proof is on its way!!!

The tirlwe says it all.  The review team passed my uploaded book and cover files.  The next step is to proof the book. I’ve ordered a print copy so I can see it live and in the flesh.

Technically I could list it for sale right now, this second, but obviously I want to proof it first so it’ll be another week to ten days probably.  Think I’ll make a release date of April 5th. Thats Pagan’s birthday, so seems auspicious.

Wish me luck everyone!!!!


Title Page, Copyright Page..bleh!!!

It was more frustrating and difficult formatting these than doing the entire book.  For those who dont know, these are the few pages at the front of any book before the actual story starts.  They must be there and yet…what a PITA if they haven’t been done first.

I will never make that mistake again, believe me.

Book Cover is finished and my ISBN is in!!!

Its really very exciting. I finished designing the cover for the book this afternoon.

And I bought and received my ISBN today as well.  For those that dont know what that is, it’s an international number all books are assigned to keep track of them in bookstores etc… Its that barcode and number you see on the bottom of the back cover of all books.

Well, I got mine today which means this is a real book now! Woot! Or at least it feels like it to me.

Anyhoo, here is the cover…
