Dear Readers:

Well today sucks on an interplanetary scale. As you’ve probably heard by now, my publisher Strange Chemistry Books is closing its doors less than two years after its official launch. I heard the news about thirty minutes before the news release hit the wire. Lots of mixed feelings right now – from anger to despair to “@#$% it, move on”. I’ll classify this as a setback, one of many in my publishing journey. I’m grateful for my two book deal with them. I’m grateful for having traveled to England twice and to have connected with so many amazing authors, bloggers and friends. It’s been a hell of a ride.

But this is a business and I have my own thoughts as to why they’ve closed their doors, I’m not going to air them because negative crap sucks and today sucks big time. So, now what?

Will There Be A 3rd Poltergeeks Book?

Maybe. I’d like to wrap up the series but who knows? Kind of low on the priority list right now, sorry gang.

Will You Starve?

Nope. I have a day job

When Is Your Next Book Coming Out?

Nothing coming out yet. Submissions, and all. You’ll be the first to know, of course, as I will shout it from the rooftops when I have a new book deal.

Are You Okay?

Yes. I’m massively bummed out, but okay. I’ve been writing since I was a kid. I’ve been seriously trying to make a go as an author since my soon-to-be 24 year old son was in training pants. I’m in it for the long haul.

Who Will Win The World Cup?



I want to thank everyone who is a fan of my two books with Strange Chemistry. You guys are awesome. I want to thank all the fabulous authors and bloggers I met for all their support and cheering on. I want to thank Jenny Savill who got me the deal in the first place and I want to thank my wife Cheryl for having been such a massive, incredible support for me as I try to make a go of it.

Onward, yo.

    Onward is right! You go. I am very sorry that you have to go through this, though.

    And my son agrees with you – Germany it is!
