And Back Again With the recent release ofThe Hobbit,
this seemed like an appropriate enough header for this long-overdue update.
Indeed, it's true - there have been no updates to this website since 2011, and
even then it was minimal. I sincerely cannot believe how quickly time has
passed. In all this time, as I've worked on my professional and family
life, this story and its novelization have never left my mind. For
whatever reason, its pull has been more prominent than ever, and I am back to
going through all the details and notes of the current novel in preparation to
complete editing and add new chapters. I do this, because I still fully
intend to get this novel published, in the most reasonable and effective
To those of you who
still check up on this site and contact me about the novel's status, I send a
resounding thank you. Your continued involvement and encouragement
only further empower me to press forward and make this the best literary work it
can possibly be, both for the fans of Chrono Trigger and the general
public who know nothing of the classic game.
As you'll see in today's
"Novelist Watch," I am also further pursuing Square-Enix. I have found a
generic contact for certain product inquiries and have more recently discovered
contact information for a specific individual within the company's USA
headquarters. I'm hopeful that an avenue to success can be achieved by
methodically following this business process and remain confident that Square
will see this as a worthwhile undertaking. As always, whatever happens, I
will press forward to ensure this novel hits the shelves!
9/6/11 -- Insert
Fanfare Here I just felt an inexplicable draw to post an
update to the site and inadvertently realized that today is, in fact, the 15th
anniversary of the Chrono Trigger Novel's initial conception.
Having just finished the book The Secret, that is particularly
intriguing.At any rate, for those of you who still check in on the
site once in awhile remembering the ambitious hope of an aspiring novelist to
rise above the corporate blockades and beat all the odds to bring the classic
story that truly is Chrono Trigger into book format, I give a rousing
"thank you." Your loyalty and support have never gone forgotten, nor has
the cause in which we have believed in now for a decade and a half.
I must report that, in
terms of the novel itself, very little progress has been made this year.
However, everything is in its own timing, and we all know that this story is,
indeed, timeless. While the novel awaits its ultimate and glorious
completion, through final editing of the already-written "first book," there are
developments in motion that may finally pave the way to making this dream a
reality. My time these days is spent heavily in the business world,
growing no less than two companies into global enterprises. One that I am
half-majority owner of, Netovative, has particularly linked me up to direct
publishing contacts and others that begin to touch even the elite class of the
world. Frankly speaking, this is high-level stuff, and it is something
that I am putting my focus in to cultivate at this time. You won't find
much about this company online or from our website,
www.netovativellc.com, at least not
yet. But it just might be our ticket to success, should I be able to gain
the attention of Square-Enix with a full worldwide distribution network and
publishing sources already within my grasp. After all, if you really want
to do business with the big dogs, then act like one.
This is an update I know
I owe all those who've supported me and these efforts over the years. In
fact, it's truly not near enough, and at this point I can only hope that you
will all find this update. If you do, please reach out to me and catch up:

I can tell you all, and wisely so, that writing the CT Novel is not my
number one goal in life. However, the time will be right when this can
indeed become my chief aim, and I will believe in the time of this project's
success. Until then, please keep in touch, tuned in, and ready for
