I won’t lie, this has been a hectic year. Both good and bad, of course, but busy nonetheless. I entered 2019 hoping to publish 3 or 4 solid books and now find myself in a race with Dark Island, hoping to have it in the hands of readers by the end of 2019. I’m behind the eight ball, folks.
See, what began as a pulp fiction offering of around 100 pages has now blossomed into a full-blown novel. This puppy is a fine mixture of 1980s retro goodness, an alien invasion, love, comedy, and plenty of action. Trust me when I say that it’s worth the wait.
Regrettably I can’t give your fine folks a concrete street date on Dark Island. College is kicking my tail. I’m undertaking a complete genre swap (zombies!). The Book Commander Podcast has picked up steam. We’ve re-branded everything here at the Ponderosa and will be launching a video series in 2020. But enough with the excuses, right? The truth is that I want Dark Island to be the best story I’ve ever written and it will be. Until then, I encourage you to pick up some of my previous work or even buy us a coffee via PayPal. Thanks! -JD
