|December 30, 2015: 2016 will see some production on the third (and final) book...finally.
November 30, 2014: My second book, March of the Evil Mard, is once again available through Apple's iBooks store. Yay! Finally ends a frustrating 2-3 years (I had forgotten how long, really) where I kept getting errors trying to get the darn thing back in their store. So, both books in the series are available now. Yeah, I know, I should have the third (and final) book done by now...but I don't.
Also - you may have noticed that I updated the main page with my new redesign. Wasn't quite ready for full re-design yet, but due to some snafus, I had to go ahead and update just the main page.
August 30, 2013: Sheesh, it's a good thing websites don't accumulate cobwebs...it's been awhile since I've updated. No new book news, just a bit of site cleaning, really. I've decided to remove the interactive coloring book - I just got tired of dealing with having a Java app on my website. However, you can still print out the pictures that comprised the coloring book, and color them the old-fashoined way...so...that's something, right?
November 18, 2012: It's done!!!.....just joking. However, motivation and focus are returning to Reign of the Sweet Uniques. I'm starting to have some fun with it again. Re-doing a lot of it (overall story arc and themes will remain the same - I'm just trying to make it more entertaining and clever); and even one or two of the Chapter Titles I think will change (though the quotes originally used for those particular Chapter Titles will remain within the context of the story). That's about it for now...
April 16, 2012: Well, how about this? Seven years ago, on this date, I started my little website here and my dream to author a book (and hopefully make a million dollars). The first two books came out fine (dream realized! Woo!...minus the million dollars...dang) - but - yeah, this third one is dragging along. My writing "A.D.D." has gotten worse...I had been splitting my attention between the third book in this series and another un-related book...and now...I've been working on a third book (unrelated to the other two) that I started in 2006, but had "put on the shelf" until a couple months ago. Jeez. I'm a juggling mess.
In Reign of the Sweet Uniques news...I recently found out that a very special person from my childhood years passed away awhile back. So, as a small tribute to her, I'm trying to decide if I want to add in a new minor character based on her - or - re-write Szalonodi's parts to make that character's personality reflect hers. Either way, it's going to cause a ripple of re-writes...but, for me, personally, it will be well worth it...no matter how long it takes.
January 15, 2012: No new book yet...it's not good enough yet. No more release dates will be put out (I've missed the last 3, so it's getting a little embarrassing), rather I'll just "spring it" one day on unsuspecting readers. There are parts I'm happy with it, others parts - not so much. I have to feel it's better than the first two books before I call it complete.
November 8, 2011: Added the final 3 new chapter titles to the Reign of the Sweet Uniques page. Could possibly add more chapters if I feel I need to break up the current ones a bit more for a better flow. Another update next month.
August 7, 2011: Added 2 new chapter titles to the Reign of the Sweet Uniques page.
June 2, 2011: I've been reading some interesting reports around the ol' interwebs lately regarding the classic board game, "Candyland", being turned into a movie. It seems the writing duo who penned the recent "Kung Fu Panda" sequel (Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger) have been hired by (Director) Kevin Lima to create a "Lord of the Rings"-esque story of good vs evil in a candy world of candy characters - action/adventure/romance/humor, etc. , included on the menu. While I would definitely NEVER compare my books to the epic "Lord of the Rings" series (Tolkien is in a class by himself) - I gotta say this movie concept is sounding quite a bit like my "The Candy Bar Adventures" series...just saying.
I guess the invite to turn my books into movies got lost in the mail?.....hmmmm? Ugh, I'm starting to feel like the nice guy who finished last.
Oh, one more thing...if I were given the opportunity to turn my books into movies, I would make darn sure that "The Candy Bar Adventures" ushered in a dynamic/intelligent "Smell-o-Vision" technology that could be easily, economically, and most important - entertainingly - employed into every theater showing the movie (think Surround Sound - but for the nose). 3-D is one thing, but if you can also incorporate the sense of smell as well?...that could be pretty powerful. You read it here first.
March 12, 2011: Added 4 new chapter titles to the Reign of the Sweet Uniques page.
February 13, 2011: Added a new chapter title to the Reign of the Sweet Uniques page. It's one of the final - if not THE final - chapter titles in the book. I felt I needed some sort of update, but I'm not 100% yet on some of the other chapter titles, so I went ahead and posted just the one.
