DUST Revised

For those of you just now hearing of my upcoming epic, Among The Fog, the narrative is broken into four parts: DUST, ASH, SAND, and GLASS. It is with great excitement that I announce I have finished personal revision of DUST and am moving forward with the editing process!

The first part took less than a week to revise and the next three parts will probably take a similar length of time to complete. It's worth noting that I am in correspondence with reviewers, but am editing the work entirely on my own, at my own creative discretion. I am not paying for the services of a professional editor, as I feel this would taint the character of such a poetic work. 

I am, however, open to criticism and it is possible that further revisions might be necessary later in the process if a reviewer provides a profound criticism of the state of the work that I can address through revision. 

Stay tuned to my progress by subscribing to the newsletter. It's only a matter of time before publication.

I grew up in Fort Worth, TX attending Covenant Classical School. I was an academic early and went on to study Great Texts of the Western Tradition at Baylor University. It was in the midst of this course of study that I began writing poems and stories and music. As a voracious reader, I was eager to contribute something of my own to the world of letters. Professionally, I work in the Specialty Coffee Industry, while pursuing literature in my free time. My upcoming works include an epic poem title Among the Fog, a series of sonnets titled Season's Song, a free-verse narrative trilogy titled The Cowtown Oracle. I am concurrently at work translating the Psalter into plainsong English with a team of scholars and linguists seeking to capture the Hebrew Poetics (according to contemporary criticism) within English verse.
