Novel News Update

Well after over a month of editing, I’ve finally turned my manuscript back into my publisher and signed off on all changes and corrections. The Chronicles of Alethia: The Heir Comes Forth has moved beyond the editing phase and is now moving into formatting and production! On another important notes, one of my favorite partsContinue reading “Novel News Update”

A Quick Thought

What is the best point in history to live? As a historian, there are many many time periods I would love to visit, but if Ihad to  choose  one to live out the rest of my days I would choose one of the most boring (regardless of the era). Why? Great wars and calamities makeContinue reading “A Quick Thought”

Novel News Update

03/07/2016 I can see a light at the end of this tunnel. Still knee deep in edits, but I can at least see the end. Still keeping on schedule and allowing the mounting excitement to continue unabated!  In between reading and editing, I’ve been working with an artist to draw a beautiful new map forContinue reading “Novel News Update”

A Quick Thought…

   Seen this picture a hundred times all over the Internet…and it still makes me think each time. Perspective can be everything. Maybe right now God has you in a place you long to escape. Yet when you view your situation from His perspective, it all makes sense. So the question remains: would you ratherContinue reading “A Quick Thought…”

Novel News Update

02/19/2016 Still knee deep in edits, though I will admit it’s not as bad as I’d feared. (Mostly thanks to my wonderful wife’s ninja-editing skills). Still keeping on schedule and allowing the mounting excitement to continue unabated! Thanks to all who frequent this blog for your support and readership. -R. S. Gullett

They can forge friendships between enemies, and betray the trust given by our dearest friends. Words, written or spoken, are a fierce fire that canContinue reading “Only Mere Words…”

Novel News Update

2/12/2016 – I’ve just received the edited manuscript from my publisher. It’s not as red as I’d thought it would be, thanks mostly to my wife’s efforts to curtail my grammatical shortcomings. I’ve now got my work cut out for me as I read and correct the manuscript to make this novel the best fantasyContinue reading “Novel News Update”

Literary Efforts

So I finished a short story I’m very excited about, but knowing my propensity for minor grammatical errors I always have my chief editor (my wife, whose job is in fact in editing) have a good long look before submitting. You can always tell which blog posts that she’s looked at and those she hasn’tContinue reading “Literary Efforts”

A Quick Thought

I actually wrote about this a while back, but somehow life’s lessons continue to revisit me.  I’m currently waiting to hear back from my publisher’s editing team, which means my efforts toward publishing my new novel have stalled as I wait to hear from them. Although I want them to do a thorough job, waitingContinue reading “A Quick Thought”
