Two Audiobooks in Production through ACX

I have good news for fans that have asked, two of my books have started the Audiobook process and have publishers working on the projects.   (Sometimes I’m not sure if I should start a post with “Good News Everyone”, since that phrase usually pulls up scary memories of Futurama and the crazy stuff that usually followed that announcement.)   They are going to be exclusive...

Follow-up Marscon, Ready for MSP Spring Con!

Follow-Up Marscon   Last weekend was my second appearance at Marscon. The snow proved to be a major factor, as it hit hard Friday and cut down on the crowds who might’ve attended. It also forced me to stay Friday night at the hotel, which meant I wouldn’t be making a profit from the convention. On the other hand, I did make use of attending some writer panels that gave me ideas. Also,...

End of the year Thanks and planning for 2019

The U.S.A.’s season of Thanksgiving has arrived, even though this post comes a few days afterward. In fact, I’m writing this on my 47th birthday! It’s a time to reflect on the accomplishments and blessings of the past year. Also, I have news of 2019. First of all, notice how the Dhea Loral logo includes a cornucopia? It very much resembles an old Thanksgiving table. This represents...

Locally, my Books on the Shelf at Chapter 2 Books, Hudson

I have to thank the folks at Chapter 2 Books in Hudson, Wi, for stocking copies of my books on their shelves! You can go there and purchase signed copies of “The Widow Brigade” and “Pilgrims with Blades”. Bill and Sue Rogge opened the store in 2011, and were also quick to support me with copies of the “Earthrin Stones” trilogy back then. They are still very supportive...

The Widow Brigade offered on ACX, Audiobook in the future!

  (Click for a larger image) The process has begun on ACX to acquire “The Widow Brigade” in an audiobook form. More and more people are turning to audiobooks, listening to them on long trips and commutes, or maybe while resting on a hammock. (Am I the only one that keeps a hammock on his deck in the summer?) No idea when this project will finally come to fruition, but it’s now...
