So life happened and I found I needed to take a little time off of my Jordan books to work on another project. (More on that at davidburgett.com) But, I’ve missed Ally and Lucy and Raymund. They’ve been calling out to me and I just let them all know that I’ve come back to Ouverture […]
Yesterday I attended the 2017 Kansas City Writing Workshop. It was great! Marisa Corvisiero was the main speaker, and I enjoyed listening to her talk. She was energetic, friendly, and enthusiastic. Her instruction rambled a bit from as she directed her speech at once squirrel after another, but much of that was audience-driven. The members […]
I’ve spent most of my writing time over the last two months on Book 1…final edits, preparing a Query letter to agents, finding agents who might be interested. It’s been exhausting and wonderful and terrifying. Intellectually, I know and understand why my book will get rejected 50 times. Even the best book ever written would […]
It’s been a while since I’ve had an update on Book 1, A SENSE OF MAGICK. That’s because I’ve been busy revising, fixing, correct, tweaking, and hopefully improving it based on feedback from a very nice agent who helped point out some of the flaws, both in the text and in my query. I have […]
I just made progress on The Other Realms Book 3 – Untitled! So far I’m 85% complete on the Outlining phase. The good news is that I’ve made enough progress outline to support starting NaNoWriMo in just 27 hours and 32 minutes!

I mean, seriously…is there anything better in the entire world than kittens? Their playful curiosity, unabashed enthusiasm, and overload of cuteness. What could possibly be better? Yesterday, we stopped at the pet store to pick up a new fish for my son. We walked out of the store 2 hours later with a fish…and two […]
Yesterday, my son’s soccer team suffered their first loss of the season. It was a 3-1 thrashing that wasn’t nearly that close. The problem wasn’t the skill of the other team; it was the lethargy of a hot, late afternoon game and the inability to overcome adversity. The other team was definitely a good team. […]
I just made progress on The Other Realms Book 3 – Untitled! So far I’m 22% complete on the Research phase. 19 Days remain until the deadline.
A Sense of Magick is ready for beta readers! Again! After another year of adding text, cleaning up scenes, and editing text, I’m finally ready to share the first book in The Other Realms series with my beta readers again. Let me thank you in advance for reading for me. It means a lot to me […]
