The other time killer is my own mind. I am writing and out of nowhere AMCs The Walking Dead creep into my thoughts and I wonder if those poor guys are ever going to get a break. Then, as I am thinking of zombies I realize: Hey! There are walking dead in my fantasy series muhahaha! Alas, even though MY zombies are slated to show up again in my series, they are NOT like the zombies in The Walking Dead. It would be silly to have my characters running from and being killed by zombies out of the context of the way I wrote them in Defenders of the Sacred Land. BOO! Oh well, I can always write a zombie story later!
Back to the eventful past few days: I recently began experimenting with my author website and I hope (if you are not reading this blog on my website) that all of you have visited my webpages. I have been tweaking it here and there. The address right now is marktyson.weebly.com. I say right now because I am changing all of my intellectual property over to Mark E. Tyson. Soon the same exact website will be marketyson.com. It's already like that on twitter and FB. I will be putting my name as Mark E. Tyson on my books from now on too. WHY? Because there are an alarming amount of Mark Tysons out there. I am hoping the E will set me apart from the others, especially when I am googled. Now that I have gotten my website, twitter account, FB account etc. worked out. I can get back to writing! Exiles of the Sacred Land is nearing completion of the writing stage. I will edit and polish it, send it off to my editor, finalize the cover etc. and have it ready to go shortly.
Hand in there--
