Happy Tuesday Everyone! Just a quick pop into Bloglandia for me today to share some recent praise thrown at my new book Hoard It All Before. I was a little nervous about this review because Mr. Pongratz rarely holds back when a book doesn't work, when the characters are dull, or when the plot is … Continue reading (REPOST) Book Review: Hoard It All Before — Jonathan Pongratz
Hello Bloglandia! I've got a little treat for you.... A sample chapter from Hoard It All Before! Yep, just like one of those pesky peddlers lurking at the ends of Costco aisles, I'm handing out samples in an attempt to lure you in and get you hooked on my product.

Hello Bloglandia! Yes, I'm a few days late with this week's post, but it's been a crazy wacky week...more on a bit of what that was all about at the end.

Happy Saturday, Bloglandia!! Okay, writers...how are you doing with your NaNo goals? Of course, if you're nearing the finish line, you're probably not wasting time reading blogs, so why did I even ask? But if you're not furiously cranking out words, have you finished NaNoWriMo?

Hello Bloglandia! I almost didn't get around to doing a video update this month (hey, who just cheered?!). But in the nick of time, I threw myself in front of the camera phone and recorded a writing update. If you prefer a just-the-basics update, you'll find that below along with my sales stats from August. … Continue reading Getting Double Booked in August (Writing Round-Up)
Hello Humor-Seeking Humans! It book review time, and I know I'm a bit early for my monthly reading round up (the official one is coming next week), but I'm also a bit late with this review as I read the book way back in early May. Yes, it's a bit of time paradox! Anyway, A … Continue reading Cat Chess Anyone? A Melee of Mages (Book Review)
Hello Bloglandia! How's your June going? Any plans for summer (or for winter, if you're on the upside-down part of the globe)? My June, so far, has been going swimmingly...and not just because we FINALLY got some rain here in Portland. See, I kind of, sort of wrote a book. Okay, a first draft of … Continue reading Oh No! I’ve Become a Pantser.
Happy Saturday, Bloglandia! Breathe a sigh of relief because it's (sort of) the final video of The Undead Mr. Tenpenny Book Launch Video Extravaganza! And the best part of this video is that is does NOT feature my goofy face. Instead, I'm showing off the paperbacks for The Cassie Black Trilogy.
