The Nightmare Final Cover

Look at this beauty. I started working on The Dream Saga trilogy in August 2012 as I typed out the first words to The Dream. That first book was released in March of 2013, followed by The Vision in November of the same year. Nearly two years after I decided to pursue my dream of being a novelist I happy to announce that The Nightmare is set to finish up the trilogy very soon. I am aiming for an early July release date for this new book and I can’t wait to hear what you all think about the conclusion to Timmy Emerson’s story. Thanks to Author Marketing Club for helping me out with the cover.

But I said in the title that there are more updates. What’s up with that, Tyler? Good question. Glad I asked it. I’ve been working so hard on these books that I haven’t put nearly enough time into other important activities that should surround and support them. I want to get these words into more people’s hands. One way I hope to do this is to put more work into keeping this website’s blog active. Here’s how I plan to do that.

  1. More short stories: I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the short stories that I have been featuring on this website, so I’m going to continue to write and publish them, but on Mondays instead of Saturdays. I think that will work better for everyone.
  2. Telling stories that matter: It took me these two years to fully discover who I am as a writer. Having said that, it is obvious who I am as a person, and what I mean by that is that I am a Christian first and foremost. I find my identity in Christ. That’s why I tend to write things about Jesus, The Bible, and the Christian life. So I’m going to be publishing blog posts that explain Bible stories and apply them to our lives through stories of my own. What does that mean? Hang around, you’ll see.
  3. Something else? Those are my two ideas so far and I will likely alternate between the two depending on how much time each of them take to produce (here’s a hint: I can write a short story in 2-3 hours on a good day, so there will likely be more of those than anything else).

That’s all I have for you to today. Do you have any favorite Bible stories you would like me to cover? Let me know in the comments.
