I am pleased and proud to announce the soon to be launch of my friend and fellow writer, Eric Swett’s new book, APOCALYPSE RISING in June 2012. Filled with danger, suspense, action and adventure, this book is a must read.


Hello, fellow WordPressians, I give you all greetings and wish you all many blessings. I would like to introduce you to a very special, very talented man who is a member of the WordPress family, ERIC SWETT, of MYWRITERSCRAMP.

I first met Eric a little over a year ago, when he responded to a post that I had made, which had been a prompt response posted by another extremely talented member of our WordPress family, Ms. Stephanie, of BEKINDREWRITE. (If you are a writer, and you are running low on inspiration, go check out some of Ms. Stephanie’s prompts, past and present. I promise you, they are guaranteed to give you muse a kick in the keister!)

Since that long ago day, Eric has given me a gift more precious than all of the gold, precious jewels, or money in the world…his friendship. He is not only a talented writer, but he also does reviews as well. He has won at least one NaNoWriMo  award, and just recently I had the humble honor of creating some designs in honor of his successfully writing one hundred words a day for an entire year. That, folks, is something to be proud of!

I would like to take this opportunity to present Eric with another award, one that I created myself some time back for my friends here on WordPress.

So without further ado, I do hereby present this





to Eric Swett, of MYWRITERSCRAMP, for his posts and wonderful talent, and also to Stephanie, of BEKINDREWRITE, for the many wonderful and inspiring prompts that she has provided all of us.

Eric’s posts here on WordPress have held his reader’s enthralled, anxiously awaiting the next installment, for over a year and a half now. And I have had the honor and privilege of his friendship, support, occasional guidance in terms of writing, and the occasional kick in the pants when I would talk about giving up for much of that time.

In many ways, had it not been for his belief in me, and his support, I honestly do not think I would even now be nearly ready to post my own book. Any who have the honor of calling this man friend are highly blessed, for he is one of the kindest, most caring and compassionate human beings I have met in a very long time. I was granted a very special gift the day that fate brought him into my life. I look on him not only as my friend, but as my heart brother.

This special man has done so much to encourage me, to help me learn the ropes of writing, and in helping me to believe in myself, not only as a writer, but as a person who has worth. So I would like to share my vision of my wonderful friend.

I would also like to share some very exciting news! Eric is going to be releasing his new book, APOCALYPSE RISING, in June of this very year! Take my word for it, folks, this story absolutely rocks!

Even more, it began right here on WordPress! That’s right, folks! If you want to read and find out for yourself that I am right about this story, and about Eric’s talent as a writer, then start at the beginning, take a journey of action and suspense in APOCALYPSE RISING! But you had best do it soon, for Eric will be pulling the story when he publishes the book! So don’t miss out!

Be sure to watch for updates as the date of release approaches for



the wonderful new book by talented new author



I would like to announce the soon to be launch of my newest book, THE IHMAYRAN CHRONICLES TRILOGY. If you like stories that tell of myth and magic, prophecies and portents, maids and monsters, then you might like THE IHMAYRAN CHRONICLES TRILOGY, which is a story in three parts. Each story is separate, yet all are a part of a whole.

For Mayna Phayris, every day was pretty much the same. She got up, ate breakfast, then, after giving her mom, Miriam, a quick kiss, she headed off for another day of teasing and ridicule. It had been that way for as long as Mayna could remember. She and her mom had lived in the same house ever since she was about two or three, when her dad simply took off one day and never came back.

Mayna wishes with all of her heart that things could change, not only for herself, but for her much loved mother as well. Mayna had spent her entire life watching her mother make herself ill, trying to work whatever jobs she could find, often working two jobs, just to keep a roof over their heads.

There is an old saying, “Be careful what you wish for…you just might get it.” Mayna is about to learn that there is much truth in that saying, for the night of her sixteenth birthday is about to indeed bring change…though not quite exactly what Mayna might have had in mind!

Miriam had given Mayna a tiny ceramic unicorn statue and a pottery wheel set for her birthday that day. Mayna gets up at midnight to mend the tiny chip that was in one of the little statue’s legs. She had seen the look in her mother’s eyes when she realized she had given Mayna a flawed gift. Wanting to make her mom happy, Mayna decides to mend the flaw, using some of the ceramic dust from the pottery wheel set.

Such a simple action, but one that was about to have very far reaching consequences. That seemingly simple, mundane action will set into motion events that began, not only in another time, they began in another world. Those events will shatter every concept of reality that Mayna and her mother had ever known, and change them both forever.

Miriam and Mayna will find themselves training to fight a war against an enemy of total and unmitigated evil, to save the world that would become their new home…Ihmayra.

As for Mayna, who had never really thought of herself as very special at all, as events unfold, she is about to find that she is very, very special indeed. She will discover that her story did not, in truth, even start in her world.

Book One of THE IHMAYRAN CHRONICLES TRILOGY will take you on a journey to the past, to the wonderful, magical, and yes, sometimes terrifying, world of Ihmayra. You will meet a king and queen, a powerful magician, a witch, and witness the birth of a very special baby, the


So come, journey to a land where you will meet creatures of myth and fantasy…a world where true magic is not an illusion…

It is a definite…and sometimes deadly…reality.
