Quick Update!

(this post pretty much mirrors the latest Kickstarter update I posted)

A Sawmill's Hope will not release in June (obviously). I'm sorry. But I'm stoked about the momentum of current progress so I felt the need to share!

Regarding Edits - By next week Jamie will be doing the final pass on the manuscript. Meanwhile, my copy editor will be doing her thing (line editor? The one who fixes grammar). After that's finished, it's just a matter of transforming the finalized book to ebook and print format!

Regarding Art - Tracy has provided enough finished art pieces for me to work on the Kickstarter prizes (prints, wallpapers, etc). Those are underway.

While we're on the subject, here are a few previews. I could not be more excited about Tracy's work!

In order as they occur - Hunting in the Rain, The Surrounding Forest, Old Man Hastr, Nasties in the Woods, Moderate Resolution

I meant to post this about one week ago but my laptop's harddrive pooped out on a mission trip in Brunswick Ga (will prob write a blog on that trip) and I wasn't able to get much writing done while there.

Alright. Time to get back on it. See you guys soon



  1. Good to hear it's coming together. The artwork is really cool.

  2. Things are moving along nicely. And I can see why you love the artwork. It came out great.

  3. Sounds cool! So long as you're making forward progress, it's all good:)

  4. Alex, Thanks, I agree!

    Robin, absolutely. Good to see ya

    Mark, you're totally right.

  5. Hey, David!

    I haven't been much of a visitor over the last several months -- I know you're been busy on "A Sawmill's Hope" and I haven't been doing hardly any blogging at all. But I understand the delays, and I'm a patient guy. I know quality takes time, and I'm more than willing to wait for it...

    And at least you give us lots o' cool pictures whist we're a-waitin'.

    1. It's good to see you round here, Chris!
      I agree on the pics. Thank Tracy for those!

  6. Just checking in to see the progress. No worries with the delay - that's par for the course in this business!

    1. Good to hear from a published author such as yourself!
      Thanks, Jay
