Hello Everyone,

First of all I hope everyone it well and is checking out information about the American Revolutionary War this week. It did begin on April 19th, 1775. At least according to my calendar and to some other sources. I find it interesting that through so much research you can actually find conflicts of certain important dates such as this. And only dating back 241 years. It is not a very long time in human history or even the recorded history of humans. Think about all the knowledge or events that would be so easy to hide or misconstrue over such a period of time.

Desert Shadows and its Relation to this:

When I was writing “Desert Shadows” I found it interesting to add in specific things about historical events that took place. However I tried to sidetrack them to a certain degree that they were Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

First off people might ask me what I find eerie about this. Frankly it’s because it is a vampire story, or at least to some extent of one. Vampires are something that still find their way into our imaginations from time-to-time and are constantly revisited in movies, books and other forms of media. This vampire tale happens to take place in a cemetery location which just adds to the eeriness of the story. Although like most posts in this segment I will leave most of the research up to you, the reader, I do want to touch base on one major part of the story. That is, it starts in the 1950s.

Why does the date stand out?

To me the date stands out because of how recent it was and that it caused such an up-stir. Although more in depth information is scattered around the Internet on Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Today I want to share with you an author who has somewhat inspired me to become a writer. Dean Koontz was one of the first authors who ever really held my attention. Don’t get me wrong there were plenty of other books before my first Koontz novel that I loved but I continued to read from his works because there was something there that captured my attention.

Don’t or Do, Judge a Book by its Cover?

Well I know the saying and when it comes to books it is a tough subject for me. I personally decided on the artist’s cover design, out of several, for my book “Desert Shadows,” with the thought of how I first purchased my first Dean Koontz book.

“If I saw it and didn’t know the author, would I buy it?”

I purchased “Forever Odd” by Dean Koontz because of the cover. I Continue reading

Hello everyone,

I am adding this section to my blog from now on. It is called “Eerie for Thought.” Kind of like the saying “Food for Thought.” Although my segment is nothing to take to seriously, or into deep consideration, it is stuff that I find interesting and would like to hear any feedback about what you think. So hopefully it will be fun and informative for everyone So we will focus this first one on the Sedlec Ossuary

The Sedlec Ossuary

The Sedlec Ossuary is something that always interested me. Although there are many ossuaries around the world they are mainly in Europe from my research. This one stands out because of its huge skeletal display. Although I am not planning on going to deep into facts about the Sedlec Ossuary I want to focus more on the eeriness of the display that many nowadays would find frightening but Continue reading

Hello Again,

Hope my previous blog wasn’t to boring in the general sense. As many of you can imagine, especially those I have spoken with since going public with the book, “Desert Shadows,” and myself, is that there has been a lot of questions floating around. Well, there has. I am getting a lot of the same ones so before adding it to the FAQs section I will try to answer some here. One that people keep asking me about is the title and the fact that there are other books with the same “main” title.

How is this?

Well first off, those several other books are on different subjects. Some have subtitles to the main title that explain what the book is about besides just “Desert Shadows.” When I first titled the book “Desert Shadows” I asked myself the same question about it possibly getting confused. It has, Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Once again I would like to thank all of you who have added me as a friend through social media and any that are following.  I would also like to thank all of you who have taken the time to visit the website. Over the next few weeks, and then continuing on, I will be adding these blog posts to the website to promote the release of the book “Desert Shadows.” I will also be answering any questions I can as I get time to do so. Any Frequently Asked Questions that I do get, concerning the book, will be added to the site to clarify as much as possible as time goes on or if they accumulate on a specific topic. I am also in the process of writing the second book at this time but have no estimated release date due to my schedule. I Continue reading
