Barcode: Demon of Gods

If you’re seeing a new post from me, you know what that means. You’ll notice that the description for the book is very short and I haven’t said a word about the plot. There are far too many twists this time. I can’t tell you what this is about, but don’t stop reading. I wrote this one to piss you off. You’re only punishing yourself if you stop early. Amazon Side note: Remember, these are books 5 and 6. Currently, you can only download the book from Amazon. Simon, your…

Barcode: Demon of Gods Release

You’ve got questions. I’ve got answers. When will DOG release? The book is complete. When did I finish? Five minutes ago. I’m still formatting everything and making sure it’ll load properly on every website, but the editing is done…for the most part. What the hell do you mean for the most part? Let’s talk numbers. LOA was 95,000 words. That’s a damn large novel. You can actually claim to have a novel at 50,000 words. In perspective, Harry Potter’s smallest book was 75k and the largest was 250k. I just…

Why ‘Self-Helps’ Don’t Help (Part 2)

Review In yesterday’s post, I decided to expose the “psychic nature” of Self-Helps. In other words, I expressed reasons why Self-Helps don’t work. Today, I want to give specific examples. I’d like to compare real life situations to Self-Help genres. Why ‘Self-Helps’ Don’t Help Relationships Let’s start with the numero uno, grand champion of failing Self-Helps. First thing to note in Amazon’s genre filter: Relationship books aren’t even listed under Self-Help. They’re hidden. The smart people at Amazon know that if you’re looking for a novel about being a better…

Why The Hell Is COY Free?

Originally, I planned to write a 7 series story, Barcode. The series were meant to follow the life of Kode, the villain of the first novel. Even from the story’s conception, I always intended to make Legend of Apollo free. I learned from other up and coming writers, that the FREE stamp helps authors gain exposure. However, I recently set my second novel on fire, Cavern of Youth. Though the novel’s sales were increasing monthly, I decided to list it for free as well. Why? Is there any benefit? Don’t…

Barcode: New War Order

How busy have I been with moving, writing a new novel, and studying for exams? So busy that I forgot to announce the latest book in the Barcode Series. Well, here you have it! Late as hell.

Let’s list them off in bullet form because it makes crap easier to swim through: Barcode: New War Order changed the way every book I write is formatted This novel finally shows Kode’s weak points The location isn’t…

Barcode: New War Order Release

Currently, I’m still in the process of developing New War Order. However, I haven’t had time to write any chapters for a long time. For those that read other post, you may have known that I didn’t have a job after relocating to Southern California. I searched diligently and couldn’t find anything until recently. Now, I’m working at a real estate company doing the same thing I do here, blogging. I manage SEO and social media websites. My goal is to drive traffic to websites. Though I knew a little…

Concept Art for Barcode: Cavern of Youth

It’s in! The artwork for Barcode: Cavern of Youth is finally here. I was so excited when I saw the concepts for Barcode: Legend of Apollo. Initially I assumed I couldn’t be surprised twice, but it happened. I love going to my Facebook and seeing the number “1” on my messages. I always know who it’s from. My cover art designer sends me regular updates about her process and asks a lot of questions. She’s pretty busy and doesn’t have time to read the novels. Because of that, we type…

An Update For Barcode: Cavern of Youth

I’m currently editing Book 2 of the Barcode series. I love writing. I really do. It takes my mind off things and lets me concentrate on my characters problems instead of my own. It’s an excellent way to avoid the real world. But writing and editing are difficult. I write quickly and make a lot of mistakes. My editing normally carries on for months, both before and after I receive comments from my editor. For this novel, Barcode: Cavern of Youth, I’ll actually have two editors. The first one is…
