I listen to them. I watch them on TV, videos, or movies. I read them.
And I write them.
I’ve written almost every kind of story there is. Mystery, romance, confession, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, horror, and every other kind I can think of and garnered a couple prizes and ‘best-selling’ author designations along the way.
I’ve written short stories, novellas, and novels.
In the process I’ve learned that my favorite stories are science fiction and paranormal. Preferably the two combined.
My stories are always clean, they are always either contemporary or near future, they always have at least a slight romantic element, and they always end happily. Always. Guaaranteed. (Okay, two short stories, ‘The River Boy’ and ‘Down From The Mountain’ have endings that might not be considered completely happy. Maybe just somewhat happy. You decide.)
Check out the covers below and see what you think. And have a happy, happy day.

One, two, or three books?
A writer asked what’s the better option for a fantasy novel. To do it as two books, three books, or one very long (250,000 word) book.
When new writers approach a publisher, they are usually told not to think about publishing a book until they have three written because the work involved in marketing just one book isn’t worth it. Three books, on the other hand, provide time to introduce both the series and the author and to get readers who liked the first book eager to read the second and third.
So my suggestion is to turn the story into a trilogy. It’ll be easier for readers to digest a little at a time and will be way more marketable than a single, long book.
