I’m so excited and it’s still a day away!

What Have You Been Doing Andy, Besides the Free Book Excerpt?

Phoenixes are flying about the house! I’m writing my story about how I got them from Saudi Arabia and they’re excited about it!  There goes one now!

Now you’ve got to realize these illustrations are merely artists’ conceptions of what they look like.  My own phoenixes look quite different, but I can’t publish pictures of them without their permission. I can’t violate their privacy.

Be sure to watch this space for the FREE SHORT STORY to come on my phoenixes.

What’s The Latest News About My Undead Mother-in-law?

I’ve sent my manuscript to my editor Dori Harrell. She’s already replied with some feedback.  After she edits my book, I’ll send out copies to reviewers and advanced readers.

Last Friday I read the excerpt aloud to my authors’ group and they all loved it.  I also recorded it on a video yesterday! Plus, I recorded two new excerpts from Zombie Turkeys.

You didn’t know I did videos? Check it out!


I intend to create an audiobook of Zombie Turkeys this year. In fact, I’m offering a free copy monthly to my newsletter subscribers. If you haven’t joined yet, now’s the chance to get in on the free gravy train. Just go to our main page, put in your email and click on Subscribe.

I’ll be back here blogging about the reading and give you a full action report later this week.

Countdown: Free Book, 2 Days Left
Countdown: My Undead Mother-in-law July 2017

That’s what I’ve been doing this past week, instead of blogging. I have a self-imposed deadline of May 1st for completing my own editing. Actually, I sent it on May 2nd. I missed it by that much!


But for you aspiring writers this is still a good lesson: it’s better to set a firm deadline and miss it than to have NO deadline and never finish anything at all!

Next, I’ve got an exciting announcement about a new story I’m writing I’ll give away for free!

Announcement: Free Story Giveaway

It’ll be a short story about how I got my five pet phoenixes.
