Author Interview: Jake Elwood

Rumors of War by Brent Nichols Hello again, everyone. I know I haven’t posted much, but there’s a great reason… I’m busy writing. 🙂 In the meantime, I wanted to introduce you all to someone I met through several writer’s groups. Jake has critiqued a couple pieces of mine, and I have read some of his in return. He’s quirky and funny with an interesting sense on reality. I thought it might be interesting to do an interview, so you

Where Have You Gone

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. From author interviews to just regular blog posts, you may think I’ve fallen off the planet. I have, of sorts. I have pushed hard to get Fort Reiley released, published and publicized. Several months later, and I am bruised and tired. Putting all of my energy into the books has been an interesting project, and I have many plans and dreams. But right now, God has put other things on my heart that
