Book Backgrounds

I have added pages to this website providing background information concerning major aspects of my Hell Holes books including Hell Holes 1: What Lurks Below, Hell Holes 2: Demons on the Dalton, and Hell Holes 3: To Hell And Back. The pages typically have descriptions and photographs of concepts used in the book series.

New Book Cover

I have a brand new cover (see above) for Hell Holes 2: Demons on the Dalton. It is by the same cover artist, Ellie Kay Bockert Augsburger, and finally matches the style of the new cover of Hell Holes 1: What Lurks Below.

Draft Movie Script

I just received the first draft of the movie script for Hell Holes: What Lurks Below and am scheduled to provide my comments and recommendations to the producer and scriptwriter in a teleconference on September 18th. With any luck, we should have the final script in about 6-8 weeks. I’ve posted the movie script outline and I would be very interested in your thoughts about the scriptwriter’s variant of my book.

Current Work

I am currently having fun writing Hell Holes 3: To Hell and Back. I recently finished my initial drafts of chapters 8 and 9 and am working on the last chapter. Once I’m done, it will be time to go back and finish some of the earlier chapters and do a final pass before sending it out to beta readers and editor.

I am about 80% done with Free and Low-Cost Marketing for Indie Authors, which should be out sometime this coming summer. I am incrementally releasing increasingly-complete drafts every weekend until it’s done. I am also looking for beta readers and members of the book launch team. You can volunteer here.
