To all of the awesome fans of the Worlds Without End series,
I had previously scheduled the release of the 3rd book in the series, Worlds Without End: The Prophecy for Christmas Day 2013. Unfortunately, I am going to move the timetable for release to sometime in 2014. I am busy pursuing a Doctorate degree and working on another novella series. To my fans, I apologize for this, but I assure you it will get done. Also, I want this book to be better than the first two and that takes time. I will release a definitive date for release in the Spring of 2014 as I progress further with the book.
Update on the Progress of Worlds Without End: The Prophecy
For all of you who can’t wait for the release of Worlds Without End: The Prophecy, book 3 of the Worlds Without End series, here is an update on its progress…
As of today, July 11, 2013, I have finally finished the outline for Worlds Without End: The Prophecy. If things don’t change and I don’t add or delete a chapter here and there, the book will contain 23 chapters with a prologue and and epilogue. Each chapter will contain anywhere from 2 to 6 scenes. I think one of the chapters actually has 7 scenes.
My hope is to have Worlds Without End: The Prophecy ready for release, final edit and everything, on Christmas Day 2013. This book will probably be have around 130,000 words. Christmas, as of the writing of this post, is 166 days away. That means if I write 1,000 words per day for the next 130 days, I should have the book completed by that time.
I am excited for Worlds Without End: The Prophecy. You’re in for a surprise with where I want the story to go for the final book – Worlds Without End: Redemption.
I will keep you posted on my writing progress. Read More
Leaders are Readers
Harry Truman once said, “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” Reading a good book that focuses on personal development and growth for 30 minutes each day will unlock your mind to its full potential. After all, what you put into your mind will come out. Just like what you eat will be reflected on the outside. Junk in –> Junk out. Greatness in –> Greatness out. Read More
Your Self-Esteem is Who You Believe You Are
The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines self-esteem as “a confidence and satisfaction in oneself.” If this is the case, then what does it mean to be satisfied with yourself? In other words, Who do you believe you are?
Story on Self-Esteem
Joshua knew who he was. By all accounts, Joshua was a young man who, on the outside, looked like a person who should be a failure in life. He was overweight, his complexion was scarred with pockmarks from severe acne as a teenager, and he had a stuttering problem. He loved sports growing up. Unfortunately, he was never athletic enough to participate on any of the teams in high school. But he didn’t let that stop him from still being involved in what he loved – sports. Instead of participating on the sports teams, he served as team manager for the football, basketball, and baseball teams. Read More
Two Farmers Parable about Positive and Negative Thinking
I read a story a while back. It was about two farmers. One of the farmers consistently maintained a positive attitude while the other farmer always focused on the negative. One day, rain fell upon the fields of the farmers. The positive farmer said, “God, I thank you for the rain that thou hast given me to water my crops.”
However, the negative farmer said, “I hope it doesn’t continue to rain. If it does, my crops will be flooded and rot.” Read More

What is Your Purpose in Life?
Do you know why you do what you do? If it’s your job, do you know why get up every morning? For every role in our lives, there is a purpose or a reason why we perform that particular role day-in and day-out. When we don’t know our purpose or our why, life can become frustrating and at times unbearable.
I wrote the following short story to help discover: What is Your Purpose in Life? Enjoy, and I hope it gives you some clarity and helps you find your why.
Review of Man of Steel
In 2006, Warner Brother’s attempted a comeback with the Superman franchise (Superman Returns), starting where the 1980 Superman II left off. To say the least, the film was an epic failure. Critics and fans alike land blasted the reboot for its lack of action and imagination. While I personally liked the movie, it didn’t captivate me like I had hoped. Enter in Man of Steel for 2013. This new spin on our beloved hero is directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, and Michael Shannon. With a new director known for intense action and the mix of actors and actresses, let’s just say that Man of Steel hit the target where Superman Returns missed wide right (or left, whichever you prefer).

I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.
