The joy of learning new things

I’m very close to getting The Wrath of God out for beta read. My books need maps. The Atlantis Papyrus has a few—I had to develop them with PowerPoint and some image manipulation drudgery and they still suck.

The Wrath of God needs, no, demands, some good maps. And I just happened to find a map making software called Wonderdraft.

I love it!

I’ve spent a few hours in the last two days just figuring out how to create simple, yet attractive and effective maps, and I already have my first map ready. It’s fun learning new things and picking up new skills. The Wrath of God will, no doubt, have prettier maps.

History Behind the Book: The Atlantis Papyrus - is now available

If you enjoyed (or plan to enjoy) The Atlantis Papyrus then you should join my mailing list to get the History Behind the Book which is a short, 30 page companion that covers some of the key events in the book and tells some interesting things about that and lets you know what was real.

Many of us read novels and sometimes wonder, “hmm… which of that was true?”

Well, the History Behind the Book is an attempt to address that, for my novel.

Enjoy! BUT DON’T READ IT BEFORE YOU FINISH THE NOVEL, THERE ARE SPOILERS!
