A year of silence (to the very day) has lapsed since writing here. Today, I had a phone meeting with a publishing house about my book A Manor House in Yarmouth. The caller said she had been going through my blog posts, and I told her that I hadn’t posted for about a year. . . .so, I thought afterward that I would check when I had last posted, and it has been a year to the day! Far too long! I assure you, my pen(s) have been continuing to write.
As my above paragraph alludes to, I am in the process of trying to publish A Manor House in Yarmouth (a title the caller said should be changed to The Manor House in Yarmouth – I took note of it but think that it wouldn’t be fair to all the other manor houses in Yarmouth to exault my story’s house above them 😉 ). One of the main advertising stunts I’ve completed for publishers and literary agents is a book trailer showcasing the book. I have it featured below. One minor note, I’m starting to work out my video editing software and lighting much better, and I plan to start using green screen soon to rid the rather foreboding black background that features me in the trailer.
Another minor note: I have completed another book after A Manor House in Yarmouth – my fourth book to be published, and I’m working on my fifth book also, set place in the fifteenth century! I’ll have to give other blog posts about these works. . .
In my Writing Motivational Tip videos, I am in the middle of doing a series on Conservative Writing. Head over to my YouTube channel videos to check them out! Here is the first video in the series:
I have begun a new series on YouTube! In real time, you get to observe my work on my stories. This is an insider’s peek on what it actually takes to make a story come to life. Watch this series for inspiration as well as for a relaxing background noise when you go to write your own story! Here is the first video:
From my Treasure on the Southern Moor and The Williams House websites, I am beginning again to re-broadcast story snippets. Head on over to check them out!
Welcome to the relaunched website of Conservative Cornerstones! I have decided to give an entire video training course away for free. My Writing Imagination Course, which takes a writer from first conceptualizing a story to having a finished manuscript ready for publication, consists of five modules that you have access to right now on YouTube!
There is always more room in my email list! Right now, I am sending out an email series that gives sneak-peeks at my up and coming third novel. If you want free resources at many of my writings, then please subscribe at the bottom of this post!
Here are some screenshots from my latest email campaign:

And yes, I let everyone watch my YouTube videos, whether you are subscribed to my email list or not. Interested in the above screenshot of my reading a chapter of my book? Watch below!
Sorry everyone! ‘Tis been a long time since posting on here before today. I hope you enjoy both of my articles about my two books, The Williams House and Treasure on the Southern Moor.
I have not posted for a little while because I’ve been updating my YouTube equipment and working on my third novel. Both things are coming along well, albeit slow. If you are concerned because none of my YouTube videos work from this past semester, don’t worry! I have created a video discussing what my YouTube channel will be about in this upcoming year (below). In short, I’ve moved my previous videos from last year to private for now, but I will be recreating them with my better equipment, so hang tight! More content will be coming out shortly.
As I continue working on to the end of this year, one marketing venue I have been working to improve is my YouTube channel. It is still a little below professional quality, yet I have been cranking out several videos a week and probably have the quality about as good as it can get with my current camera. I plan to be switching tactics next semester and instead of creating six videos a week, create and release two videos a week. One will be less quality, and the other I will be implementing a new strategy to improve its quality. We’ll see where all that goes, but for now, I thought I would leave you with the last few videos that are hot off the presses!
This last video is very special to me now that our dear Rev. Dr. RC Sproul has passed from this life to be with His Holy Lord and Savior. When I created this video (it’s takes some time from filming to publication), I had no idea that within a few weeks, RC Sproul would die. I know his preaching has affected so many. The below text was a very small tribute I gave him in the comments section of a couple of the Ligonier Ministries YouTube channel videos:
I think that RC Sproul has been the most influential Christian in the Reformed faith since the Westminster assembly first drafted the Westminster Standards. He has definitely been the most influential contemporary theologian in my family’s understanding of what reformed teaching is. May God raise up another man like RC Sproul to continue preaching in full strength and with similar zeal the truth and essence of reformed theology. I’m glad that Ligonier ministries is prepared to continue without their dear and faithful leader, and I also realize the difficult standard by which they must measure up to in his absence. God bless the Sproul family.
I could not end this note without also giving gratitude for RC’s optimistic eschatological teachings, as I am a Postmillennialist, and my father taught me much of what I know about the Olivet Discourse from RC Sproul’s sermons on it.
So, you are probably wondering why I have not blogged in a week. I had a few setbacks, one of them being my main production computer crashing on me and having to fix the problems with it largely myself. Sorry for the delay!
As a quick update, I lost some of my draft for my coming book, but thankfully had some of it backed up, and because I always first write with pen and paper, it’s mostly just copy and revise from the hard copy that I have.
On YouTube, I am continuing to improve my channel. Below is my latest published work, though there are several more videos in the pipeline.
As far as my other websites are concerned, I plan to be publishing a few articles on them today, but do not worry! They will be posted here as well.
