First Reviews Are In!

With my book officially out and into the hands of the public not quite a week I am beginning to get some feedback from readers. I knew this day would come and to be honest its been a bit nerve racking, to say the least, waiting for this feedback.

So far, however, I am pleased to say that the feedback has been better than expected! One reader, a small business owner in Michigan, wrote in the guest book of my website the following:

"What a read! I could not put it down. The story is MAGNETIC!! I felt as if I were right there. A great combination of STARGATE, BATTLESTAR GALLATICA and STAR TREK! Looking forward to more from this author. Keep it up. The Universe awaits you."

Another reader, a junior attending high school in San Antonio, wrote the following on my wife's Facebook page.


A third review of my book comes from a young reader whose mother had purchased a copy. Her mother reported to me that her daughter read the book from front to back in one sitting as she could not put the book down. The mother said she walked into her daughter's room in the middle of the night to find her daughter up in bed reading. The girl said, "Mom, this book is so good. I can't put it down. I have to keep reading."

Now I know that this feedback is not from the New York Times or USA Today, but for me it doesn't matter. Sure I would love a critic from the Times to review the book. But for me it means more when a reader comes up to me and tells me that they love the book and can't wait for the sequel. That's what I love. That's what is important to me. That's when I truly feel like a writer.

Book Updates and Where to Purchase

Just a few more days until the official release of Seventh Earth. We are already planning several events. There will be a book release party in College Station on December 4th and on the following day a release party in Utah on December 5th. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the party in Utah as I will be at the one in College Station. However, I will most likely be doing a book signing near Christmas in Utah. I will post the location and date on my website as we get closer.

Many have asked where they will be able to purchase Seventh Earth. The best answer to that right now is on as at first the release to bookstores will be somewhat limited geographically. However, feel free to ask your local bookstore if they have it in stock. But again, the best place at least for now will be to purchase it online at

Advance Copies Now Available

There are advance copies of my book now available. You can purchase one by going to and clicking the link. Because the official release is not until November 24th the only way you can find the book on is through the link on my website. So in other words. if you try to go straight to to purchase my book you are not going to find it. And yes, if you do purchase the advance copy it will ship right away. Its not like going to Walmart and purchasing an advance copy of a movie only to find out you have to wait for two months before you actually get the movie. This you will actually get within a few days after you purchase it.

Book Release Party!!!

With the overwhelming support that I have received from so many of you I have decided to host a book release party. Although the book will be available for purchase on November 24th, because of the holiday schedule I have decided to hold the party on the evening of December 4th. That should give people enough time to get over the turkey overload and be ready for some good reading.

The party will be in College Station, Texas. I am however thinking of scheduling a book signing event in Utah in late December. I will be in Salt Lake over the Christmas holiday and figure I might as well take advantage of the opportunity.

So, if you are in the Salt Lake or surrounding area and would like for me to do a book signing please send an email to If I can get some interest I will see what we can do about finding a venue. Heck, I would be willing to do it out of some body's home if needed.
