Month: March 2018


For the past year, I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a blog. Not a post-once-and-then-disappear-forever kind of blog (which I’ve done countless times in the past), but a serious blog that gets updated on a regular basis with quality content.

I can’t guarantee it will happen, but hey—you’re still here, aren’t you?

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is J. R. Schuyler, and I’m a writer who enjoys experimenting with different genres and styles. I’ve self-published two short books so far: “Sleepers” (a sci-fi murder mystery) and “When the Leaves Fall” (a historical short story based on real events). I have a lot of other projects in the works, including:

  • The Gloaming (contemporary fantasy/YA)
  • The Astral Entity (sci-fi/action)
  • The Rabbit in the Moon (sci-fi)
  • Catch for Us the Foxes (dystopian/YA)
  • Deceivers (sci-fi/mystery)
  • Oceans Between Us (mystery)
  • December’s Drive (YA)

The reason I’ve decided to take the plunge into blogging now is an exciting one. As of 30/03/18, I will be writing full-time for a few months. No study. No job. No distractions. Just me and the novels I’ve been dying to finish. I won’t have time to complete all of them, of course, but my goal is to have at least two polished manuscripts ready by December.

During this time, I want to share my journey with the most important person of all: you, the reader. In addition to monthly updates on my progress, I might occasionally post my thoughts about writing in general and things I’ve learned, as well as anything else that I think might be of interest to you.

Whether you’re here because you like my books or because you stumbled on this blog by accident, I’m very grateful to have you here with me. Your comments and feedback are always welcome.
