Roy is not happy

Unhappy Terror WightThe terror wight is acutely aware that the late release of The First Story pushes back the next one. Roy says he’s going to autograph covers of Littlelot and the Real Monster and give them to his friends in the figurine drawer.

I told him, “It’s an electronic book, Roy. It doesn’t work that way.”

But he wasn’t listening. He said, “Why can’t we put out my book first?”

“Roy, The First Story has to be first—it’s... the first story. It’s where the character earns his knight’s name.”

Roy grumbled under his breath, something about knights.

I said, “What did you say?”

“Lancelot is a pushover!”


Hypertext Magic Language

In the past few weeks I’ve been learning a new thing. It’s called hypertext magic language—HTML for short. It’s behind the words you read in an ebook and you can make beautiful things with it.

Although it took longer than I thought, The First Story of Littlelot is in the final proofreading stage. It will be available before the end of the year. Look for it on the Books page.

Meanwhile, here's a preview of the ebook.

Littlelot Adventures on Wattpad

Starting Wednesday, June 15, I'm releasing the six episodes of The First Story of Littlelot on Wattpad.

The First Story of Littlelot

In his game of make-believe, a boy must make a choice -- break his oath to the king or break the heart of the woman who gave him the most meaningful gift.

The First Story of Littlelot is an Arthurian romance with knights and damsels and other action figures.





Wattpad is a community of writers and readers. On Wattpad, readers discover new stories and books by published authors as well as new talent. An author posts a novel, chapter by chapter, usually once or twice a week, and the reader can comment on the work and engage with the author. Sometimes you'll find a completed story to read at your own pace. Sometimes you'll find the very first chapter of a new book and read it, week by week, as it's being written!

Read the Preface to the adventure and follow me on Wattpad (1-step account creation). Go back there every Wednesday for the next six weeks to read another episode of Littlelot.

Then explore Wattpad to discover your next favorite author... or start writing your own story and become my next favorite author!
