Ghostwalker - Book Four of the Kingdom of Walden Series - On Shelves April 21st, 2017

The fourth book of the Kingdom of Walden Series, Ghostwalker, on shelves everywhere April 21st, 2017.

Again (almost a flashback here to October when Between Silence and Fire came out) a certain retailer is already selling it (Kindle) but, again, you have one last week to wait if you want the hardcover.

Now we're five years after I wrote the first book, After Oil.  Five years and three years since After Oil was first released way back during Anime North in May 2014.  Now, we're four books in and I have something else to tell you.

Ignore the acknowledgments in the back when I say Ghostwalker is the last book...

... There at least two more books.  (What?  What? WHAT?!)

You read that correctly.  Two more books!

So, the list is now up to six:
  1. After Oil
  2. The Last Iron Horse
  3. Between Silence and Fire
  4. Ghostwalker
  5. Red Sails
  6. Whispers on the Wind

I will have more news as things happen, but don't forget about these two events coming up:

Next weekend I am hosting a massive online release party to celebrate Ghostwalker's release, and I've invited numerous other authors from every genre out there to help me host it.  If you're looking for your next read after Ghostwalker, you should come check it out.

On the 29th of April, I will be supporting "Authors for Indies", which is a Canadian National day to support independent bookstores around the country.  It is a day of books, authors, bookstores... cupcakes... no, seriously.  

It's author Kari Fisher's (not that Carrie Fisher) birthday that day as well.  I'll have a signing, we'll share some cupcakes and have a great day.  If you're not in Sudbury for that particular event, please check out your local independent bookstore for events.  See you there!

About Ghostwalker

… But this hardly means lost.

Derek Moss is alone and far behind the enemy lines controlled by Colonel Harnet. While he’s not lost–it’s hard to be lost when he’s managed to find his own, if old, backyard in Garson itself–he finds himself cut off from the Rangers of Walden and without allies as his own have presumed him dead. But he knows one thing Harnet doesn’t… and that’s how to win even when the odds are against him.

A Kingdom pressed on two sides.

The death of a Queen is never easy, but it’s twice as difficult to hold everything together as Regent when Marissa now has to deal with the slavers sensing an opening on her West… and the war with Harnet on her East. All she wants is a chance to breathe again–and to mourn the heavy losses the war to retake the Downtown Core have cost her new home…

… But time isn’t on anyone’s side.

How Pokemon Go works (or why I went from being a hater to loving it)

Okay, by now everyone and their brother have probably heard about Pokemon Go.  When it first came out I was like many who thought it was stupid.  People are running around, trying to catch a fake monster on their phones and tablets, and someti
mes being really stupid and trespassing, walking off of cliffs or into traffic.

Not for me.

So, what made me change my mind?

It had everything to do with researching everything I could find on it, including how it works and what makes the programming tick.

(Disclaimer: This blog post is not meant as a gameplay guide.  You may get a few tips and tricks from it, but the intent to find such is not here)

The first thing to note is how the Pokemon spawn rate works.

First things first:  If you're sitting someplace rural, you're probably SOL.  The reason is that the spawn rate/chance is directly linked to cell data and how many people in that area are actually playing or have played recently.  It doesn't matter if there is a Pokestop with a…

Between Silence and Fire - Book Three of the Kingdom of Walden Series - On Shelves October 28th, 2016

I'm really pleased to announce that the third book of the Kingdom of Walden Series, Between Silence and Fire, will be on shelves everywhere on October 28th, 2016. Some retailers already are selling it (Kindle) but you have one last week to wait if you want the hardcover.  It's almost here.
I can't believe it's been four years since I first wrote After Oil and started this whole thing.  You guys have been amazing in pushing me to keep the series going.  I'm sure some of you have also noticed the change from "Trilogy" to "Series"...
... Why is that?
Well, it's not a trilogy anymore!
You wanted more - and now you've got it.  I have already written (and apparently on Kobo it, too, is available for pre-order now) the fourth book of this series, Ghostwalker.  Ghostwalker will pick up almost immediately after this one ends... and you won't have as long a wait between this book and Ghostwalker.  Unlike these past three books, Ghostwalker wa…

The Zen of Inbox Zero

What most people don't realize about me is that I'm incredibly organized.  
I have to have a clear and clutter-free desktop (both on my computer and physically) and even my emails have to be cleared from my inbox.

I don't mean deleting them--I mean the zen of having a place for everything and filing it away to its place like you would with your various papers in life and your office.  This has a few benefits to me, and others who subscribe to the philosophy.  First off, to move an email to its corresponding folder means you've dealt with it and if you need to deal with it again later, it is easily found in the folder.  Mind you, using Gmail also has another benefit which is the search utility, but I still like to organize it all into the various folders and sometimes even subfolders because I like knowing... just knowing... where things are.

To open my inbox and only see emails that I haven't dealt with (or none at all) leaves me with this sense of peace that I hav…
