From 2007 to 2014 I wrote a popular spirituality/advice/advocacy/humor blog at JohnShore.com, and for The Huffington Post.
From April 2016 to November 2017, I wrote Ashes to Asheville, the first real-time weekly serial novel to be published on the website of a major daily newspaper. You can read Ashes on the Citizen-Times website, or here on this site. It’s also available as a podcast via iTunes or its Libsyn page. The Citizen-Times’ article introducing Ashes to its readers is here.
In January 2016 I finished a month-long Kickstarter campaign for my debut novel. That novel will finally be out in early 2019. (Its lateness has everything to do with the extremely unexpected costs my wife and I incurred during the building of our first home—a home about which you can read a bit in an article I wrote for the Asheville Citizen-Times, Home of the Week: Affordable and Green in West Asheville. Thankfully, the backers of my KS campaign have been phenomenally patient and gracious to me during the book’s mortifyingly long delay.)
