Why buy from me? If you buy direct, I get paid within hours rather than months, which helps me write more books. The big retailers are great and I love working with them (you can find my books at all of them), but it’s becoming harder to be seen. My direct store allows me to feature my products without having to compete with anyone else for your notice.
June was a busy month and a rainy one. Cool and rainy every weekend, it was a challenge to get my garden in. I finally did. Many things are growing very well. There are things I still need to learn to do better, though.
The first round of edits on The Afterworlds is still in progress. I’m past the halfway point. The bones are good so far. My notes are mostly about fleshing things out more. That’s a positive.
Besides working on the next release, I’ve been busy researching how to expand. I’ll be venturing back into print and will be offering it direct through my Not of this Earth Bookshop as well as other outlets. On this site, I’ll be offering options for regular print, large print, and special editions not available anywhere else.
I also decided to go ahead and offer my books in audio through digital narration. I started with The Rifters and have the first one almost done. I’ll be putting my full catalog into digital narration except for The Backworlds, Stopover at the Backworlds’ Edge, and The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear. Those three titles are still under contract with ACX. I hope to extricate them in the near future.
These expansions mean a renovation of the Not of this Earth Bookshop. I have so much to do, but I’m happy with these decisions and the large heaping of projects on my plate. They’re exciting projects, so stay tuned!
And once The Backworlds series is completed, I will be at work finishing up The Rifters series, then the Hetty Locklear series and Squad 51. After those, I’m already cooking up new stories… my favorite part of the writing process.
I did see Jurassic World: Dominion this month too. I know the critics really didn’t like it much, but I did. I always think more people could have been eaten by the dinosaurs, but that’s always my opinion.
The husband unit liked it too. To me, it had more of a plot than the previous movies, and the references back to movie one were awesome. The addition of the original cast was great too. The major disappointment was the theater had no Cheetos popcorn. I had to get the regular stuff. Yikes!
It was our first trip to the theater since COVID shut everything down, and it was really different. For one, not so many snacks. For two, not much staff. And, the signs outside the theaters telling you which movie was in which theater weren’t working.
But the 3D dino action was fantastic. It was a fun movie, which is all I expect from a movie with dinos running amok. I would rank this as my second favorite movie of the franchise. In order: 1, 6, 4 and 5, 3… 2 is the movie I don’t like to talk about. That one was a sad, sad disappointment.
Hope you had a good June. I’ll check in again at the end of July!

A monstrous secret hides in the backwoods of a remote western town—a portal connecting our world to forty-two other universes. The visitors—most would call them terrifying—often have devastating effects. Their destruction hasn’t been intentional… until lately. The usual band of protectors, The Rifters, defend us with daring and weapons built from coils, gears, and crystals, which is no longer enough. Earth’s survival depends on an outlaw from 1888 and a librarian with a knack for ghosts.
The Tumbas: Inside a dome called the Pearl, Rett is selected to be the next tumba master. To keep civilization from ruin, she must bond with her hatchlings and the tumbas must accept her. Triumph is a heartbeat away when the tumbas’ feral ancestors crash in through the dome and kill her golden herd. Can she bond with the wild ones? Or is her dusty red world doomed?
Small Graces: Grace’s pod crash lands on an alien world. She meets an alien race with shriveled arms and learns something that appears like nothing can make a huge difference.
The Other Side: Nena, and everyone on the space colony, has been locked away for 20 years, quarantined against a deadly alien pathogen. Today, the door clicks open. She stands in front of it, hesitating to go outside.
