My first revised novel, "Cursed Darkness" is almost complete. CreateSpace is sending my complimentary copy in the mail and hopefully, it looks good. This is my first self-published novel and I am eager and nervous for this step. The editing was done by S & L Editing and they did an amazing job! The only element that will be missing from the books is, the spine text. The book will be printed at 94 pages and it was a little short according to CreateSpace standards. I will be posting a pic of the cover. Hopefully, you readers and authors will like it. Thank you-Duane E. Coffill
Hello, everyone. I've been busy revising my novel, "Cursed Darkness" and now, it is being edited by Stacey Longo Harris. I also was part of the Halloween Midcoast Halloween Readings.

Working on numerous projects. With one novel finished at 145,244 words, I am in the market for a publisher and have been submitting to quite a few. With that in progress, I am working on two novels and two short stories. I just had a 100-word short, "Jack's Revenge"accepted and will be published by Indie Authors Press in "Spooky Halloween Drabbles 2015. I am looking to publish another ebook within this year. My first self-published was "Dark Voices" and that was published in Jan 2015. It depends on length, where I want to publish and make it long enough to fit into print format. That's it for now. Keep reading and keep writing and follow your dreams...
PortCon 2015 was a huge success for me! Thank you to everyone who came out and bought my books! Pics are listed down below.

Notes: With everything happening this past weekend, It really made a difference for me and dealing with Crohn's Disease and being pre-diabetic. I would like to thank the Lord Jesus Christ for giving me a great gift and that is...writing! With that being said, I have numerous writing projects, including two novels and three short stories. Crazy, but good! Thanks for visiting, my friends.
