Have you ever worked on a project that gave you a happy ending but ultimately left you wondering if you could’ve done it better? Well, I feel that way about some of my books, especially after those early reviews, and every once in a while I get the urge to remake them into something even better. This page is a testament to that. Find out which books are getting updates by checking out the list below, and click on their respective “roadmap” button to view their progress.

When Cellphones

Make Us Crazy

a novella

(2017)

Obsession and cellphones make for a happy couple. A happy, infuriating couple.

At some point, we all find ourselves gripped by obsession. What do we do when it hits? Do we resist it? Follow through? When Avery Ward meets his dream girl at a frat party, obsession grabs him between the legs and pulls him along for a lengthy, tumultuous ride, and he must restore balance before obsession ruins him and the lives of those around him.

Note: This description refers to the 2017 theme-centered novella. The updated story, which may become a novel by the time it’s finished, will likely have a new central story force behind it, rendering this description (mostly) obsolete.

Lightstorm

a novella

(2015)

A man and his wife are about to share a life-altering secret on national television . . . if they aren’t careful. 

Two rival photographers searching for harmony while tempting the raw powers of nature and action engage in a game of photographic mayhem on the ice fields of Greenland to resolve a bet over who can produce the better calendar. But will their egos permit them to declare a winner? Or will the secret they discover along the way alter the course of their lives instead?

Note: The current version will remain unchanged. The update adds two acts after the existing content, upgrading the story to a novel.

The Fountain

of Truth

three Christmas fables

(2015)

Christmas is a joyous time of year, full of festivities and storytelling, and what better time is there to tell a good fable than Christmas? That’s right, none! So find your favorite chair, gather the kiddies on the floor, and download “The Fountain of Truth” today. It has three stories in one! These fables cover themes about truth, wisdom, and purpose. In a fun way, not a “fun” way.

Note: This book is both readable and complete in its current form, but I’m rethreading the short stories in with a central storyline called The McCray Parables that will span at least five books moving forward. So, it’s fine to read it now if you just want the three short stories, but after it goes through the triage, it will contain a new story that uses the existing stories as “parables” to shape its direction, as well as connect directly to my next collection of Christmas short stories, Snow in Miami.
