New Horizons


I completed the initial submission for the paperback version of Orchids Ablaze! I’ve ordered an author proof to review before making it generally available. I added the graphic for CIBA Semifinalist to the cover and updated the back cover text as well.

Since this is the first time out of the gate, I primarily need to check margins on the print. If I adjust them, then I’ll have to rebuild the book and update the table of contents appropriately. That may take a few days, but after that the paperback will be ready for ordering! I’m fairly confident the margins are too large if anything. Since the price is primarily based on the number of pages printed, changing the margins stands to make it cheaper for you, dear readers!

I'm on my 5th or 6th career depending on how you count them, but ideally this one will be my last with the kind help of our readers. I've traveled to several states across the U.S., but the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina will always be where I'm most comfortable. I've been an avid reader of comics for more years than I'm going to mention, but I return time after time to the old pulps. Obviously the Doc Savage books have been a tremendous influence. There's just something about seeing and hearing those characters in your mind's eye, just the way YOU, as the reader, think they should be.. I've been writing poems, lyrics and stories of varying quality since I was in my teens, which means most of my archives are on paper in three-ring binders! I've been creating characters in various RPG systems for at least that long. I've always thought characters made the story: good characters can live on through story after story. It wasn't until the last 6 or 7 years that I felt I could write characters well enough to be engaging. You'll have to let me know how I'm doing.
