Quick Update here. Back in November I joined KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing). This is a Kindle exclusive program that requires you to remove your book from every other venue and only sell through Kindle or Amazon’s printing service Create Space in exchange for better promotion options. Each contract lasts three months long. I've since regretted the move due to the limited availability to readers. My three month contract expires on the 28th of this month. You can expect Chaos to be up and running shortly after that on all other digital venues, i.e. Nook, iBooks, Kobo, etc. If you do not have a digital reading device, tablet, or smart phone you can purchase the book on Smashwords.com in any format and read it on your computer. Thank you all so much for your continued support! “Happy hunting everyone!”

Music can inspire. Music can spark an idea, fuel a dream and drive passion. I know a lot of authors who listen to music as they plot and grow their stories and characters. It's even become a common thing now for published authors to release a "playlist" for each book. One of my favorite things to do is to put on some noise cancelling headphones, crank up some tunes, lay back and let it feed my imagination as I disappear into far away lands.
I listened to a variety of music while developing and writing Chaos but one band in particular influenced me the most. Angels and Airwaves. There's just something about their music that has always brought to mind scenes of fantasy, science fiction, and war torn post apocalyptic cities.
So, I was pretty excited when I heard that their upcoming album was going to be titled-......wait for it,....... The Dream Walker.
WHAT?! No way!! How cool is that, right?
And then they release a video created from the mind of Tom Delonge (lead singer) about a young man named Poet Anderson. It's awesome. It's beautiful and creative and it downright gave me chills. While there are many differences, I think you'll be able to spot some similarities in the concept. I guess great minds think alike. ;) Anyhow, I wanted to post it so everyone else can enjoy it as much as I did. Click the vid after the jump.
