Ever since we came up with a logo for Zeiger Adventure Publishing or ZAP, I've been working with my cover artist to update all of my covers. The adventures were fairly straightforward. All I really wanted was the logo added to the spine and back cover. With Quaking Soul, I knew more needed to be… Continue reading Quaking Soul Cover Update!
The magic's in the details. The bread pudding tastes like heaven to one character but is only soggy bread to another. A character's left leg is broken, making shifting on an old, standard vehicle impossible. The swamp smells of mold and decaying wood. Now when someone says the jelly's making the bread mush, a reader… Continue reading Hidden Mythics World Book
Some experiences stretch us more than others. Some books require more fortitude. So far, HMII has required more of me than any other writing project to date. I love this story. Sometimes it makes me bleed. Which makes when I pass a milestone all the sweeter. I finished the Alpha edit on HMII last week… Continue reading Hidden Mythics II Update #4

Watch your character, it becomes your destiny." I’m not sure where I originally heard this and when I looked it up, it looks like even the internet… Continue reading Keep Showing Up
Some books name themselves. Zap Dragon and Discarded Dragons certainly did and it was incredibly nice to have a title early on. Other books, however, remain elusive. If I'm being totally honest, I still don't love the title Mystery of the Golden Shells but I had to make a decision and this was the best I had at that point.… Continue reading Hidden Mythics II Update #2 – Still in Need of a Title
Back when I was posting updates about the progress on Quaking Soul, I referred to the manuscript as a monster that needed to be tamed. In hindsight, it wasn't as huge of a monster as I believed. At least, not in comparison to its sequel. The sequel has some massive teeth! The current manuscript weighs… Continue reading Hidden Mythics II Update #1
