Bumper stickers are here

The Sage of Hytrae bumper stickers are in. I will be selling these at my booth for $1, or giving them away with book sales. Headed into town now to setup.

Day one is done

First day at OTD is over, and it was a hot one. I enjoyed talking to the several visitors I had today. Since it’s a school night I shut down a little early to get the kids home and in bed. Tomorrow I hope to be open from about noon and into some of the later hours.

Here’s a picture of the booth!

OTD starts tomorrow!

Hey everyone,

I will be setting up at Old Timers day festival in Peebles, Ohio tomorrow. The festival officially kicks off late afternoon the same day. Be sure to stop by if you are in the area!

Meant to get this posted Saturday when they came in, but the new bookmarks are here!

If you find me at any of the festivals (including OTD this year) I will have these on hand to pass out!

As you can see it has the trilogy artwork and book titles on the front. On the back is my picture (from the back of the books, I really should get an updated picture for the next book release), a brief bio, list of published books and my website at the bottom.

I should have some bumper stickers to bundle with book sales, or sold separately for $1. They are still in the mail, but should be delivered by tomorrow. I will upload pictures of those once they arrive as well.

I am excited to get to meet anyone and everyone at the festival 😁

Until then, May God bless you, and please don’t feed the Jacobs

August Update and Announcements!

Hey everyone!

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!

 

The Sage of Hytrae Book 2 (TSoH2) Update 1

Hi everyone!

I wanted to let everyone know how Book 2 was coming along. It is on schedule as of right now for the manuscript to be done well before the end of the year. My plan is to publish it first quarter of 2016. In the next few weeks I will be posting more details about this, as well as, the information that I released if you made it out to our booth at OTD. Stay tuned!

Event was a success!

Hi Everyone!

I’m sorry for not getting on here through the OTD Festival. I made sure to have some Facebook updates, but I just didn’t have time at night to get on here and write updates as well.  The Old Timers day booth was a success. I was able to sell over a dozen books to people at a special festival rate, and we even gave two away in a drawling we had through the week. I would like to thank everyone who stopped by the booth and gave their support. I am hopping to have some more events in the near future, but I haven’t decided on any at this time. I hope you all had a good weekend as well!

OTD Tomorrow

Hi everyone!

Tomorrow is the start of OTD. My plan is to be there from beginning to end, at least as best I can. If you have a chance to come any of the days, please stop by the booth and say hello.  I will try and get some posts on here during/after each day, but we will see how that goes.

The event is almost here!

Hi Everyone!

If you haven’t heard by now, I will be having a booth at the Old Timer’s Day Festival (OTD) later this week (Sept. 17-20).  I will be available for autographs most of the event. We will have a limited number of copies of The Crystal Seal available to purchase.  We will also have an early sneak peak at Book 2 of The Sage of Hytrae series (don’t worry if you can’t make it out. I will post it online too, just at a later date).  I hope to see everyone there, safe travels everyone!

Event Booth opens in one week!

Hi Everyone!

I’m super excited about the fair booth that I will be having at Old Timers Day in Peebles Ohio, one week from today.  I have been prepping for it over the past month and a half and I hope it does well.  Don’t worry, I haven’t quit working on Book 2 in The Sage of Hytrae series. In fact I am hoping to have a small teaser at the fair, how big the small teaser will be is still to be determined. I hope to see you all there!
