Ok then, another round of writing in public. This time, a little different: I won’t be writing continuous posts on a weekly basis, but rather writing them daily (unless there’s a good reason not to). Even better — I won’t be writing new posts at all. I’ll be updating this one, which I’ll keep pinned. Reason? Don’t want to spam people’s inboxes with daily digits. But you’re free to come here if you want to see how I’m doing.
Goal: 2k words a day … with a full time job. Yeah. Tall order. I’ll try to make up any words I miss during the week on the weekends. I’ll post word counts sometime between 6pm and midnight EST.
So what’s all this about? Well, I’m trying to write 3 books in a row, between 60-80k each. A separate project from Hell’s Children, as I’m in much need of a break after all that YA violence. Afterward, I hope to polish off Hell’s-3 and then go on to pursue a career in interpretive break dancing.
July 19, 2017 — 1000 words: Considering the day I had, I’m happy. Hopefully I’ll make up the difference by Saturday.
July 20, 2017 — 1733 words: I’m getting there. What a bad week to start this, but a worse week is next week. Because it’s always next week when there’s work to do, isn’t there?
July 21, 2017 — 200? — Don’t laugh. I still have my day job. This is probably going to happen a lot. Hopefully can catch up this weekend (looking forward to it, actually).
July 22, 2017 — 1500 — Getting there.
Wow, that took a long time, didn’t it? But Hell’s Encore is finally live. I think it lives up to book one in all ways and exceeds it in others. But obviously I’m biased.
Book One is 99 cents for a week. If you know anyone out there who enjoys post-apocalyptic fiction, or who might enjoy a more modern Lord Of The Flies tale, I’d love it you let them know. Links below:
Book One (Hell’s Children):
Book Two (Hell’s Encore):
Ok, we have a release date for Hell’s Encore. June 6th. How about that cover, huh?
So there’s this jerk named “P.T. Hylton” who writes so good, makes me wanna slap my momma’s English teacher. I’ve read 5 books by this guy already and now he’s written another. Makes me sick. If you wanna be sick too, that’s your business.

to see the cover reveal for the sequel to Hell’s Children on May 9th. Oh, and drink more Ovaltine.
For anyone who likes podcasts with writers, this one was pretty cool. For readers: I mention the name of the next book in the “This Dark Age” series (Hell’s Children). I also talk a little about what was going through my head when I wrote book 1. Enjoy!
Just wanted to let folks know: the draft of the sequel is done. I’ll release the name when I put it up for preorder in about a month and a half (I need more time to brush it up before giving it to the editors). It’s a real doozy, by the way 🙂
Just a quick update — the audiobook has arrived! Narrated by Guy Williams, and I think he did an amazing job.
