Barcode: Eyes That Kill

It’s official. The fourth book to the Barcode Series has hit the Amazon market. For those of you that are caught up in the series, you know that Kode was last faced with an incredible task, challenging thousands of gladiators. Well, the time has come to see the results. Barcode: Eyes That Kill picks up right where New War Order left off. You won’t miss a blink. If you’re excited about action, you won’t have to worry about missing that either. There is no fade to black scene for anyone…

Barcode: Eyes That Kill

It’s official. The cover art for Barcode: Eyes That Kill has been completed. The popping colors and intricate design sets a new standard for my novels. I was utterly shocked and amazed throughout the entire process. My artists, Stephanie Yang and Glynnis Koike, are stupid good. It’s that simple. Each character had their own struggle. Bailey began as a very mature looking kid. Well, she’s supposed to look mature, but I wanted her to have a soft feel. However, I didn’t want to express that to Stephanie because I loved…

Character Design: Bailey

It looks like we’re coming down to the final stretch for the cover art. I expect the cover design to be completed by the end of this month. From there, we’ll move on to a few comic pieces that will be included in the novel. For now, check out the current design for Bailey. She’s a new character that will be introduced in Barcode: Eyes That Kill. I won’t reveal her age just yet, but let’s say she supposed look fairly mature for her age.

First Draft of Editing Complete

I finally finished the first draft of editing in Barcode: Eyes That Kill. It was a challenge. I began with 105,000 words (about 210 MS Word pages). That’s a pretty hefty book. Currently, only Cavern of Youth is comparable in length. However, after editing, I added 20,000 words (50 pages). This is the longest novel yet. The editing was rough! Just being honest. Every time I write, I always try to improve. I consider previous criticisms and try to make adjustments. Not to mention, I do my best to enhance…

Barcode: Eyes That Kill Sketches

While I’m working hard at editing Barcode: Eyes That Kill, my cover artists are giving me preliminary sketches for the cover designs. We’re fighting to put out a very strong product by May or June. We’ll also have Barcode: Demon of Gods (the final book) ready not long after. For now, I want to show readers the early sketches of Kode and a new “love” interest known as Bailey. These are early, rough sketches, so don’t get too attached. And don’t judge them before seeing the color. Things really step…

One Up Barcode: Eyes That Kill

I just finished Barcode: Eyes That Kill for the second time. I actually participated in NaNoWriMo last year and wrote ETK in two or three weeks. Once I was done, I finished editing Barcode: New War Order. Though I loved the story in ETK, I knew I could write something better. When I learned character design, my instructor taught me the concept of “One Up.” It’s just what it sounds like. You take your original work and make it better. With the One Up concept in mind, I wrote a…

The Flow of Writing

Writing is about flow. Everything in life has a frequency and writing is no different. Have you ever driven behind someone on the freeway and noticed their speed increase and decrease? Have you payed attention to the way cars drift left to right ever so slightly? What about the way your emotions are stable one day but the weight of the world gets you the next? That’s life. A frequency of ups and downs. I’ve discovered my writing flow. Knowing my ups and downs allows me to maximize my potential…
