Now there are videos instead of pictures, and people can learn more quickly what I am doing, to get the sounds I do. The music creation page has been one of the most popular pages at this blog for 8 yrs. now. It needed the proper attention, and I am glad I finally had the time, to update it properly.
As an added bonus, there is a small guitar solo, from my earlier days of Internet music, and a part of a forth coming song, in the second video. I hope people find use in these new videos, and feel free to ask me any questions you have, that were NOT addressed in the videos. I would like to wish everyone the best of luck in their musical journey. It truly is a journey that never ends.
While I will continue making music, the chance of EVER seeing me perform any song live, has died. Nobody took me seriously when I said I had a booking agent, and was looking for band members who wanted exposure, and to make money. Since I could not find even a single bandmate to do the shows with, I had to tell my booking agent to just remove me, from her client list. Don’t believe I would give up the chance to recoup some of the money I have been spending all these years on equipment? Click on the picture and see the email yourself.
Because of having to give up this opportunity, I am going to put out such a good CD next time, that every fan and musician will regret not supporting me, when the opportunity was there. The chance to rise above, has drifted by my fellow musicians, and you missed it. Oh well, looks like my readers who fully support my work, will have me all to themselves.
Normally, by this time of the year, I usually have created 3 or 4 songs but this last year has not been a normal year. I moved 5 times, house-trained a puppy which I ended up having to give up, had 10 teeth removed and am still in the process of getting used to the dentures, and that is just to mention a few of the abnormal things, I have had to deal with. As a result, my 2nd book in my Shadow Shifters series is running a little late, and there is no time to create music, while I am playing catch up.
To further complicate matters, I upgraded a lot of my equipment. Of course, this will allow me to create even better things music wise, but these new tools have to be learned too!
So, while I am learning the new stuff and playing catch up with my book series, I have been uploading various things, I have in the works. None of them are complete yet, but you can get an idea of what may be coming in the future. I have been posting them to my Soundcloud account- http://soundcloud.com/lucid-chaos so you can at least get an idea of what is going on, behind the scenes.
I can make no guarantees that this year, I will complete an entire CD. Hopefully, I will be able to get at least a couple of good songs up before year end.
The music has not died within me, it is just waiting for the time to be released once more.

From this moment forward, all my music shall be completely free. Of course, if you want to support my music creation efforts, you can always choose to pay whatever you desire. All music files at Bandcamp are lossless files. That means they have not been compressed and lost sound qualities. However, you can choose to download the mp3 version, if you so desire.
There is music from several different genres such as chill, downtempo, Rock, and EDM. There is music with vocals and without. Frankly, there is a little something for everyone there. The music is for personal use only and may not be used in ANY media platform, without a commercial license. I hope some people find enjoyment in discovering some of my work and do decide to support my future efforts, which will be a little more like my roots. Just rock and blues, mostly.
As for my books, Little Moments OF Truth shall be placed into The Kindle Select And Kindle Unlimited programs. Now people can read it for free, if they are Kindle Prime members. Shadow Shifters will be half off until Monday, April 20. This is only for the ebook versions of both. I cannot change the paperback versions as I already barely earn anything on them, due to Amazon’s preponderance for putting them on sale already. I am looking into alternatives for the paper format of my books but it is looking like short of building a website and using paypal checkout, there really is no options out there that offer buyers a chance to rate and comment on the paperback versions. If anyone knows a better alternative to Createspace, please let me know.
Finally, if you wish to learn more about either of my books, there are links on my author blog, up top, in the Novels section that has everything posted about whichever novel you click on, including excerpts and book chapters/openings. Give yourself a chance to grow and find something new and different. You only live once!
To celebrate this holiday season, I will be randomly putting things on sale from today until Christmas. I say randomly because I am also in the process of moving, so can only do things like this as time allows.
Today I will be marking my First 2 digital CDs for free. If you have been on Twitter these last couple of weeks then you have seen me share songs from these CDs. Both CDs shall be completely FREE, (although contributions to my moving and Christmas funds would be greatly appreciated) through out this weekend ONLY.😀
Both of my books will be only $0.99 each for the same time period. I told early adopters of the Shadow Shifters series that I would never mark it down lower than this and I am a man of my word.
There are great opportunities for all us in my lowering the prices. Readers not only get an e-copy of a 5-star rated book for just $.99, but they gain entrance into a new kind of horror that is uniquely different and they also get to show the world that they are what matters the most. Buying a copy not only says you can see a great deal when it is looking at you, but it also says thank you to me for taking the time to communicate on a personal level and for giving you so many smiles(many more yet to come). Lastly, if we all band together to support new, original, and good ideas from authors who care about their readers, I might actually be able to buy my wife a Christmas present.:)
Both of these sales/giveaways ends on Dec. 22nd. Here are the links to get the FREE music and the $.99 books.-
Keep in mind, I will be changing prices today, so there is no telling when they will display the new pricing. I truly wish to thank each and everyone of you for making this an awesome and fulfilling year. I hope next year will be even better!
Happy Holidays EVERYONE!😎
