Finally, off to the editor.

Greetings and Salutations,

I have finally completed book 2, "Divine Verdict: The Trial of The Butcher" and it has been sent off to the editor.

Here is the what the book is all about. I will also post the cover for it as well. I hope you all enjoy.

The Butcher has been caught and her trial is set. She has vowed that no matter what, she won’t be going to prison. She’s going to show Jake and his team of detectives that it doesn’t matter if she is in prison, she can still get to anyone and to prove this, she hires some help to throw a wrench into the prosecution’s case by taking out some of the witnesses they have lined up.

Jake and his team are assigned to protect the witnesses, however The Butcher’s help gets to a few of them, so Jake and his team are forced to rescue them. As they try to keep the witnesses safe, Ashaki, the new A.D.A is kidnapped and tortured. Can Jake and his team find her in time to try The Butcher’s case and put her away for the crimes she committed or will The Butcher escape and continue to grow her criminal empire in Avalon City?

A good place to be.

Greetings and Salutations.

I would like to blog about something that touched me yesterday. I was teaching a lesson in church from a talk given by Elder Jeffrey R Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles titled "Lord, I believe"

In this talk, he speaks about 3 observations he has about an account in the scriptures. The account is in Mark 9: 14-24. In this account the Savior came upon a group arguing vehemently with His Disciples. When the Savior inquired as to the cause of this contention, the father of an afflicted child stepped forward, saying he had approached Jesus' disciples for a blessing for his son, but they were not able to provide it. With the boy still gnashing his teeth, foaming from the mouth, and thrashing on the ground in front of them, the father appealed to Jesus with what must have been last resort desperation in his voice:

"If thou canst do anything," He said. "Have compassion on us, and help us.
"Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth."
"And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief."

His first observation was that when facing the challenge of faith, the father asserts his strength first, and only then acknowledges his limitation. His initial declaration is affirmative and without hesitation: "Lord, I believe." I would say to all who wish for more faith, remember this man. In moments of fear or doubt or troubling times, hold the ground you have already won, even if that ground is limited... When those moments come and issues surface, the resolution of which is not immediately forthcoming, hold fast to what you already know and stand strong until additional knowledge comes.

This is so true. It doesn't matter how much faith you have, if you fan the flames of faith and stand strong, the more faith you wish to have will come.

Stay tuned for the next observations he gives. Till next time.

Good News!

Greetings and Salutations,

A lot has happened in the last few days, so I am going to take a few minutes to explain. I have been out of a job for a while now, about 8 months. During those 8 months, I have has some ups and I have had some downs. Seemed like more downs than ups, but as I am fond of saying, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I have to say that I am stronger now. Wednesday I had a job interview, and like the 20 or so of them I had previously, I didn't get that job. I was at my breaking point. I was starting to think that I wouldn't ever find a job. I had no more interviews lined up, no idea where to put in the next application. I had applied everywhere and for any job that I could think of. As I was at my breaking point I realized that I had done everything I could to get a job, everything I could do to find work somewhere and nothing had worked. I realized that I needed help, so I humbled myself, got on my knees and turned it all over to Heavenly Father. I told him that I had done all I could do and that I was turning it all over to him and I would subject myself to whatever He had in mind for me.

I must have finally learned what I was suppose to learn. I needed to learn patients, I needed to learn to trust in Him again. I need to learn that I couldn't do it on my own. Finally realized what I was suppose to realize which was to put my trust in Him and he would do the rest. And like he has promised those who do what he asks, he would bless those that do what he asked. After humbling myself, I received a text from my wonderful wife, reminding me that I needed to get into contact with a potential employer that I hadn't done yet. So I took a chance and sent out a quick email to them. Turned out they were still hiring and they wanted me to come in for an interview the next day. I went into that interview with high hopes. That lost feeling, and the feeling that I was about to break, was no longer there. The company interviewed me and then surprised me by hiring me on the spot. I couldn't have been more happy.

I look back on this experience with many lessons learned. I believe I am a better man because of this experience and I will take what I have learned so I don't have to repeat this. Thank you all for your undying support. I thank you all. Till next time.

Sneak Peak

I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to post on my blog this time. I have decided I would post a little sneak peak of my next novel. If you have my first novel you were able to read first part of my new book. Well here is another little bit of book 2. I hope you enjoy. Till next time my friends.

Jaxon awoke in a cold sweat screaming Jacob’s name, she tried to get her bearings as she reached for the gun she keeps close to her bed. As she looked around her bedroom, she took a deep breath, and tried to slow her heart beat. Sarah came rushing in her room. “Jax are you ok?” She got onto her bed and wrapped her in her arms as the tears started to roll down Jaxon’s cheeks. After a few moments, Jax regained her composure and looked at Sarah. “Yeah, I am ok, it was just a dream.”
“You were yelling Jake’s name, and then you screamed that must have been some dream.” Sarah looked in to Jax’ eyes and smiles. “Would you like to talk about it?”
Jaxon smiled back and placed her hand on Sarah’s cheek. “Thank you for being here for me.” She told her about the vivid dream she had. And in the dream, Jacob and his family were killed and how she watched it happen, but couldn’t do anything about it.”
“It was just a dream, it’s not real. Remember what you always tell me when I have nightmares? You tell me that I am safe and that you won’t let anything happen to me. Well the same goes for you.”
“I need to call Jake and make sure he is ok.” She grabs the phone, dials the number, and prays he answers the phone. Jake answered the phone on the third ring. “Hello?” “Oh Jake, you are still alive, thank goodness.”
“Well yeah, what’s wrong Jax?” Suddenly embarrassed, she quickly detracts from the intense emotion the dream stirred. “It was nothing Jake, just a bad dream I will see ya at work.” She hung up the phone before Jake could say anything else. Sarah saw how red Jax got and started to laugh. They ended up in a pillow fight and talked away the early morning hours till Jax had to get up and go to work.


    Jake hung up the phone a little perplexed about the phone call he just got. Megan rolls over and sleepily asks who was on the phone. Jake told her it was just Jaxon and to go back to sleep. Jake lay in bed staring at the darkness, and wondered what caused Jaxon to call him. She had sounded pretty upset. Jake knew he wouldn’t be able to fall asleep again, so he dressed and went for a run before work.
    Jake got to work and found Jaxon at her desk working on paper work. He smiled and walked up to her. “So are you going to tell me about this bad dream you had?” Jaxon blushed and looked up at her partner and friend. “Don’t worry about it, it was just a dream.” He looked at her with a look that asked if she was sure. She just smiled at him as if to say yes she is sure. Jake sat down at his desk and looked through some of the paper work that was cluttered up his desk. Jake new that she would tell him about the dream, she just needed a few minutes to compose her thoughts she always did.
Just like clockwork, a few minutes later she looked over at Jake and said. “The dream was about you and your family. It was horrible; all of you were killed by a team of assassins. There were four of them, and they each killed a member of your family. It seemed so real, which is why I called you.”
“It’s okay that you called. You know you can call anytime.” They continue to work at their desks until the captain stuck his head out of his office. “Alexander I need to speak with you.” “Yep, I’m on my way Captain.” Jake gets up and Jaxon gives him a ‘you’re in trouble look.’ Jake just smirks at her and heads to the captains office. “You needed to see me sir?”
“Yes Jake, take a seat. I would like to commend you on a job well done with the Most Wanted Task Force.” “Thank you sir, but I can’t take all the credit. I had a lot of help.” The captain stands up from his desk and starts pacing behind his desk. “I am taking you off the task force and placing you in charge of your own team of detectives and I am making you a LT. You will be working major crimes and picking up the slack in homicide.”
“Well, thank you sir, not sure what to say. I will accept this position on one condition. I get to pick my team.” The captain looked at Jake. “I don’t have a problem with that except there is one officer that you can’t have. I have assigned Sophia to take your place as head of the most wanted task force.”
“She is a good choice sir. She will do well. I will get you the list of who I want on my team to you as soon as I talk to them.” “Alright Jake, make sure you do. That will be all.”
Jake walked out of the captain’s office with a big smile on his face. Jaxon looked up at Jake. “Let me guess, you’re not in trouble?” “Better than that, Jax, the Captain has given me my own team of Detectives and making me LT. I told him that the only way I would accept this new position is if I get to pick my team. He agreed with that, but I can’t have Sophia because she has taken my place.
“So do you know who you will pick for your team?” Jake smiles. “I have some ideas.” “Well don’t leave me in suspense, tell me who you have chosen.” “Alright, I chose you to be my partner, if you still want the position. I’m sure Sophia would like keep you on the task force.”
“You know I go where you go, you can’t get rid of me that easily.”
“I agree it would take a lot more than that to get rid of you.”
They both laugh at that, then Jaxon gets a serious look on her face. “Who else have you decided on?”
“Well, I was talking to a long time friend of mine who worked for another police department. He was telling me that he was bored with what he was doing, but his LT. wouldn’t give him anything else so I told him I was putting my own team together and that he should put in a transfer and I would put him on my team. I just heard from him and his transfer went through so he will be joining us. His name is Blake Knightington.”
“I was thinking that you could place him with Detective Manu Kingston. I think they would be a good fit together.” Jake nodded his head in agreement, knowing the background of Manu Kingston. “How many are you planning on having on your team Jake?”
“I was thinking about having 5 members, you and I, Kingston and Knightington, and Kingston’s twin sister Ashaki Kingston, she is the best ADA this city has ever seen and we will need her on our team if we except to ensure that “The Butcher” pays for her crimes.”
Jax smiles at Jake. “I love the team and if anyone can make sure she pays, it will be us.”
“Alright, let’s get going, we are suppose to meet the team for lunch in 30 minutes.” They both head out to the café for lunch. They walked in and saw the other three had already gotten a table. They sat down and Jake started the introductions. “Hey everyone, this is my partner, Jaxon Strong. Jaxon, this is Blake Knightington, and you know his partner Manu Kingston, and his sister Ashaki, the newest and arguably the best ADA.”
Ashaki blushed at the compliment she was given then smiles. “Hello Jax, it’s been a long time.” She stands up and they embrace, Ashaki winks at her brother, and lets Jax sit in between her and her brother. Her brother blushed as the rest of them laughed and ordered lunch.

Hello everyone,

Well I am well into my next 2 classes and one of them is a diversities class which I am really enjoying. We are currently discussing prejudice which is a topic of discussion I have a lot to say about. I have learned a lot about society and how they are created and how they die off, and how much diversity plays a part in it. It has opened my eyes to a lot of new stuff, which is what school is suppose to do.

On another note, I have decided to drop the price of my kindle book. You now can pick up a copy for $2.99.  So make sure you tell all your friends who haven't pick up a copy to get one. The computer I have been using to write my book has been taken off life support so now i have to get a new one. Sad day I know. Anyway, as soon as I can get it replace I will continue working on it. I have a good chuck finished on book 2. I'm still hoping to get book 2 publish later this year. Anyway, I hope your weeks are going good. Till next time my friends.

Guest Blog by James D Layton

I would like to introduce ya'll to a good friend of mine, James Layton. Any opportunity I have to help out a fellow author, i will. My sister, Linna, came to me and asked if I would do a little blog thing to help promote her friend's new book. Of course I said yes, she is my sister after all. So here it is, a little something, something about James and the blurb about his new book and 2 links in case you so desire to click and purchase his book. Thank you everyone and please support all your favorite author by reading their books and posting a review on or where ever their books are. Thanks. Till next time!

James D. Layton has been writing screenplays for over a decade, but turned to novels in 2012. He lives in England with his two sons Ettienne and Cody. He likes running and chocolate, and sometimes running with chocolate. His favourite book is Jurassic Park, his favourite film is Jaws and listens to many types of music. Including Jimmy Eat World, System of a Down and The Doors.

Eloise sits at her dull little desk in her stuffy little office and watches her pencil tip snap for the final time. The war in Europe fills her mind with stories of adventure and heroism and yet for a 17 year old English girl, her pencil is probably the most dangerous thing she has ever held. It is 1945 and her only chance to escape the status quo of her existence is a small advert in a local shop window looking for war volunteers. She packs her bags. Waves her town goodbye and heads for the train station with a deep feeling that adventure awaits. Little does she know that less than 48 hours later she will be wrapped up in a world of time travel, romance and an epic journey of self discovery. She is thrown into the viper pit as time itself is split like a smashed water melon, and Eloise must embark on a death defying plot to stop Adolf Hitler in his tracks. Thrown back to 1935 with her fellow volunteers. The Nazi army baying for her blood is only half as heart stopping as the feeling inside... that she was born to do this.

Greetings Friends,

Well, I have completed the first week of school and it was pretty good. I got everything done and all my assignment turned in on time. I am excited to begin the second week of school. I was thinking about how long it will take me to finish school and how old some of my nieces would be and it makes me feel really old, but hey that's life.

Yesterday, my wife and I went to the local mattress shop to get some beds for the two other bedrooms we have. It has been a lot of fun getting stuff ready on our end for the opportunity we will be given to do foster care. We have both felt very strongly about doing foster care. Hopefully we can get the home visits scheduled soon.

I hope everyone has a great day, and week. Everyone be safe out there. Till next time.

With the economy the way it is, school has become more and more important and needed. It's a business owners world out there. There are so many people looking for work that they can be really picky about who they hire. This is the reason that I have decided to go back to school. My last job was at a boarding school for troubled teens. I realized that I really enjoyed this work, so I am going back to school and my major is psychology.

Some of the reasons I have decided to go into this field is because for one I want to work with the youth and if we can teach them new ways of coping with and dealing with their issues (everyone has issues) and get them to be able to be a better member of society then the crime rate can do nothing but drop. I really enjoy working with kids, its very rewarding.

So everyone wish me luck and I plunge in head first into school, trying not to drown. Thank you all for all your love and support. Till next time.

With the President being sworn in and all the balls and stuff going on in the political world, I feel the need to put my two cents worth in. You see, I am not really big into all this political stuff. I personally feel that the government as a whole needs to live like the rest of the nation does and maybe, just maybe they would see what they are doing to the American people as a whole. They would see the financial crap people are having to deal with. If they would just quit spending like the world was going to end we would all be in a better spot. The most important thing that these people need to do is to listen to the crap they are spewing to everyone else and actually act on what they promise or say they are going to do. If that happened, the world would be a better place. Enough with all the lies. They need to act, not just talk about it. Okay there are my two cents worth. Take it for what it's worth. Till next time.

I'm back

First of all I would like to apologize for not blogging much lately. Today's blog is going to be about Foster Care. My wife and I are in the process of doing foster care. Some of the reason we are doing this is because there are a lot of kids out there that need a good home. Last month we finished taking all the classes that are required and I really enjoyed them. I learned a lot of new info about the foster care system and how it is in place to help kids get reunited with their biological parent(s). That is the main goal, which I think is wonderful. I am very excited to be a part of this.

The next thing I would like to talk about is what's happening in my writing world. As you know my first book, "Divine Help" is out and I am currently working on book 2 "Divine Verdict" which should be out sometime later in the year. I also have a few other book Ideas I am working on as well. A couple are in a different genre than my first book. I will post more info about these and book 2 as they progress.

Now for my promise. I promise to do a better job at blogging. I am going to try and blog a few times a week. Thank you all for all your patients and support. Thank you so much.
