So good news, I will be setting up a booth at the local street fair in Peebles Ohio once again! The festival is called Old timers days, and takes place Sept. 12th through the 15th this year. This is only the second time for me to setup a booth at OTD and I will be available to both sign physical books, and will have a supply of paperbacks you can buy there as well.
I am hoping to have some related merchandise of some kind to sell/give out at the festival as well. More details on those once I have them more solidified. At the very least I will have a new set of bookmarks to give out to anyone who wants them (maybe this time without the typos the first set I gave out had haha).
Also quick update on the newest novel. As the book has begun to really take shape I’ve been wondering if I am ready to really move it forward much more. I probably shared information on the book too soon, luckily I was also somewhat vague. I have been running into major issues with flow, and structure for the novel and have realized that to tell this story well I’ll have to rewrite everything I have written so far… This is frustrating, and I do apologize sincerely about not getting this story out there this summer.
This delay will probably push that book out a ways too, because I have been making plans for next year’s 5 year anniversary of The Sage of Hytrae Book 1 (The Crystal Seal) being released. More news on that as well at a later date, but you can expect some new writing in that world as a mininum from me. What form the new stories will take is still being worked on, I wouldn’t expect a new Novel, nothing quite that extensive to announce haha.
I feel the weekly blog posts have been going well, so those aren’t going anywhere so no worries there, the next one should be wrapping up the basics of writing series sometime next week.
I would also like to thank everyone again who snagged my trilogy for free back during the first week in July this year. Please if you have had a chance to read them by now drop a review on amazon, it really helps (that goes double if you enjoyed the books haha).
I think that’s all I have to share today. I’ll keep everyone posted if I am able to cook up some extra Sage of Hytrae goodies, or really anything of the sort. With only a month left to really get things ordered I have to be moving quick, so stay tuned.
Until next time, and don’t feed the Jacobs!

I know the year is already a quarter of the way over and I’ve not gotten anything posted on here to share. I’d like to say it was because I was hard at work writing, but that would be like me selling some swamp land in Arizona.
So my premier trilogy is complete! That is obviously great, and it is exciting. I started writing the first book in that trilogy all the way back in 2010. Eight years later I found myself with a complete trilogy and at least a dozen new starts of books to explore.
What’s next then?
Well, I have been exploring and seeking feedback from one of my biggest fans (my wife). I have put work into no less than three titles this year, but none of them have more than a few chapters written at this point. Without focus nothing can be achieved, if only because you can’t see what you’re doing.
This month I am buckling down, and picking my next project to focus on (and working on it obviously). Next month I will be announcing what I am working on, with periodic updates to follow thereafter. This month I am also starting up a weekly entry into a series of blogs! (Yes, actual content for the site Yay!) Also, I am setting reminders in my phone to make sure I stay on top of this blogging thing lol.
To kick things off later this week I will be starting a series of entries about creativity. The goal of the series is to define it, explore why it is important, why you should have it, and how to obtain more of it (those kinds of things).
I can’t wait to get back to writing in full swing, and I hope that all of you are excited too. Until next time, and Don’t feed the Jacobs.
