Incarnators Published

If I am being completely honest here, I wanted this book out before now. I think I might have been a little stressed about delivering a great last book. When I wrote the first two I did it mostly for myself. I didn’t have any readers at the time. It was different this time. People […]

It took one really late night but I did finish draft number three this week. I went through and made all of the grammar corrections my wife found. Cleaned up some awkward sections. Went back and rewrote part of an earlier chapter to make it fit the actions of a later chapter. I also did […]
