This is a very difficult time for all of us. Please remember to do the best that you can to endure. Please remember to value yourselves and your writing. Please remember that you are writers, no matter if you are published, self-published, or beginning a work. Please remember that if you write, then you are a writer.
I am very excited to announce that the 3rd book in my series of ghost investigators is officially released!
Evil Lives After: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 3 is now available for purchase on Amazon!
This novel continues my series begun with Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 1 and then continued with Gallows Hill: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 2.
In Evil Lives After:The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 3, the Investigative Paranormal Society confronts an enemy that is both human and supernatural, one that the world faced down in World War Two and is confronted by as a growing menace today, that of Fascism. Jeremy leads the battle against the ghost of an American Nazi who lived during W.W.II and his grandson, who are both attempting to change the course of history and establish an American Reich. Freedom rests on their actions.

Here is my shameless self-promotion: my latest book can help writers who have issues with finishing first drafts of their books. If that is you, I offer direct, practical advice on how to Get The Draft Done! Helping Writers Finish Their First Draft by Charles F. French.
“As a writer, I have always found writing the first draft of my novel to be a daunting process. I had the novel idea, had some idea of how I wanted it to start, and how I wanted it to end. But after reading this book, I now feel I have the tools and confidence I need to get my first draft done without any obstacles!
I definitely consider this book a must-read for any writer who is struggling with their first draft! And if you’re looking for a good recipe for an omelette, this book has that as well”
“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
“The easiest way to solve a problem is to deny it exists.”
Hello everyone: My good friend and extraordinary poet, Robert Fillman will lead a workshop in an online Poetry Retreat. This will be a wonderful opportunity to work on your poetry.
This is being called “May Poetry Retreat” which is rescheduled from an earlier planned retreat.
Here’s the info:
May Poetry Retreat 2020 is a single-day retreat through Zoom. Poets can spend the day generating new material, sharing their work, and talking with other poets. Opt for any (or all) of three creative writing workshops, sign up for a spot at one of our two Zoom readings, or spend some quiet time writing. We’ll also provide Zoom breakout rooms throughout the day for small group discussion on the side as preferred. Poets of all experience levels welcome.
I have reached my first writing goal for this month! I am now halfway through the 2nd draft of the third book in the Investigative Paranormal Society series! My next goal is to finish this draft by the end of the month. My long-term goal for this book is to release it around Halloween!
Next month I will do the 2nd draft of my political thriller, then the 2nd draft of a Historical Romance–yes, you heard that correctly–and then I will begin my next 1st draft.
So, I ask all of you: what is the status of your Work In Progress?

You had to hop on the rides as they presented themselves, never knowing whether you would like the one you were in line for...or if the bastard was going to make you throw up your corn dog and your cotton candy all over the place.” ― J.R.
