Outline for Fourth Book Finished

The outline for my fourth novel, which is a children’s murder mystery novel, is done.  I am now onto writing the first draft of it.  It took a little longer to move on to the next stage than I planned on, but at least I can now get on with actually writing.


Now on BookBub

I now have an author profile on BookBub.  If you would like to follow me on there, please go to the following link:


Now on Snapchat

I’ve created a Snapchat account, and this will be to primarily post some of my pictures that I have taken.  I am aware of the 24-hour period that the posts stay up for, so how I will use is that at times, I’ll post up pictures that you can see during that 24-hour window.  Sometimes, I might take a picture of the physical copies (paperback and hardcover) of my books so that you can see what they look like in real life.  Other times, I might post a screenshot of my websites, depending on what I have to announce about them.  Finally, I might post screenshots of where you can buy my books (ebook and print) if there’s a new store that sells them, and I’m aware of it.  I won’t be using a Bitmoji, as it isn’t something I’m really into.

eBook Version of Kicking from Beyond the 40 Available on Chapters.ca

When I had announced that Kicking from Beyond the 40 was now available in ebook format, I had said that it wouldn’t be available on Chapters.ca.  It turns out that I was incorrect, and the book is available for purchase from the Chapters.ca website.  So, for those of you in Canada, if you’d like to purchase a copy of Kicking from Beyond the 40 for your Kobo device, here is the link that you can go to:


Kicking from Beyond the 40 eBook Now Available

It may have taken almost six years since the first print edition of Kicking from Beyond the 40 was published, but I am now happy to announce that the book is now available in electronic format: both EPUB and MOBI! That’s right! If you’ve been wanting your own copy of Kicking from Beyond the 40 for your e-reader, tablet, smartphone, or computer, and you were holding off on buying the book waiting for the day that I might possibly figure out a way to get it into an electronic format, you can wait no more! And if you were hoping that you could borrow an e-copy from your local library, that option is also available!

These are the stores that will hold the ebook formats of Kicking from Beyond the 40: Amazon, Kobo (sorry, no Chapters.ca or other Kobo-affiliated stores at this time), Barnes and Noble (for the Nook), Apple Books Store (for the iPad, iPhone, and Mac), Playster, 24Symbols, OverDrive, Scribd, Tolino, whatever libraries are on Bibliotecha, and whatever libraries are on the Baker and Taylor catalog.

Ebooks Available on Other Ebook Retailer Websites

If you’ve been waiting for the ebook versions of either Journey Through the Video Game World or The Treasure of Milky Lake to be available on other ebook websites such as the Apple Books Store and Scribd, and other ereaders such as the Nook and iPad, then wait no more! I have just released the EPUB versions of both of these books to other ereaders and other ebook stores. These are the new places where you can purchase the books: Barnes and Noble (for the Nook), Apple Books Store (for the iPad), Scribd, Tolino, 24Symbols, Playster, OverDrive, Biblioteca, and whatever libraries and stores are on the Baker and Taylor catalog.

Happy New Year

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

Fourth Book Now Started

My fourth book has now officially been started. It’s only in the outlining phase at this point, and it’s really early. I will let you know that I’m attempting to write a children’s mystery novel.
