Audio Book production of  my Urban Fantasy Strange Tidings is underway!

What is he up to?

I recently received the Dean’s List award for a previous quarter. I am proud of the awards I’m receiving academically. If you knew how terrible I performed during the grade school years, you would see these current awards similar to miracles.

Honestly, I’m going for a bachelor’s degree because the passion of writing wasn’t supporting as I would like. I figured, if the right side of my brain wasn’t working, what did I have to lose by pushing the left side. It turns out, I’m on track to graduate with honors and it’s a little depressing.

Why? Because I love writing. I love telling stories. It’s the one thing I feel I do automatically, from the heart and genuine. You know what I mean. You can go through life talking to people, trying to be social and do a lot of ‘fake’ things at home, work or play.

With telling a story, it has always been real for me. Something I would do for free, and now that I have that opportunity (because what we do can be freely produced. Freely given), it just doesn’t pay the bills. So, the degree will help solidify a future.

Now, I write because I can, I feel I am good at it (once someone actually reads my work. Getting ‘found’ is hard) it’s soothing and, come what may, I get to tell my children I’ve written a few books, novellas, and short stories AND have a Bachelors of Science in Information Technology.

A full life after all.

Now, all I have to do is pay off these bills.


What is he up to?

Finished the book cover for CommonSense: Act II – The Abduction Hunter.

Act I available here

What is he up to?

Act I is doing well. It’s a good start.
Editing Act II …
Nearing the middle of Act III …
Creating the inner artwork for Act II
Changing the book cover of Act II. The excessively dark motif is annoying me. Going for more of a movie poster feel moving forward.
Discovered Alexa can read my kindle books to me when it’s on my list. An esteem booster to the max when you try it.

Aaron-Michael Hall:

I’m excited to announce that the audio book for Rites of Heirdron is live on audible and the second novel Orbs of Trenihgea is available for pre-order on Amazon!

Blurb: They poisoned his planet, massacred his people, and violated his mother.

Then, they came for him.

After an interplanetary betrayal decimated his world, Zrahnz struggled to protect his people and reclaim his legitimacy as their ruler.

Now, he has received the Rites of Heirdron and vows to defend the Triax planets torn asunder by a corrupt galactic council, and the “shadow whisperers” who have manipulated them all.

With the aid of First Commander Lezayen and his QuNytwanian fleet, Zrahnz must unite the factions that deceived them in the past. The ensuing battle is for more than the survival of Triaxeyn, it’s for the liberation of the galaxy.

You can enjoy an excerpt of the Rites of Heirdron audiobook narrated by Victor Bevine HERE

Aaron-Michael Hall:

The audio book for Rites of Heirdron is finally live on audible! Victor Bevine did a phenomenal job with the narration (as usual). I will be giving away ten free copies soon.
