A new killer webcast from a familiar face

Hey, all! If you follow this blog regularly, you may have heard of the new webcast I’m planning with fellow author Angelique Jordonna called Muses and Murderers Webcast. We’re looking for guests for our upcoming show, slated to start at the end of August or early September (we’re working full-time in addition to the writing […]

Of life and laptops

Life. It’s tough sometimes. You get crazy days at work, hard choices at home, and sometimes even sleep throws you a curve ball. Take the above laptop image. I try to be as careful as possible with my laptop. I’m gentle with it when I open and close it, I don’t drop it off the […]

Revising my point of view on revisions

With my edits back and me back home, my early-morning, pre-work writing/revising time is back on track. Except “back” is a word I shouldn’t be using, according to these edits.

As done as they’re going to get for now. I think….I think I get to do stuff I want to do now! So what’s first on my list now that my list is […]

Something brewing

Something wicked(ly fun) this way comes. I can’t give details yet, but if plans go, well, according to plan, there will be a new project in my life that looks to be really fun. I’ll have to get over my social anxiety and woman up, but I’m excited for the prospect. I won’t go into […]


I’m not an intellectual. I know a little bit about a bunch of things, but I don’t know much about much of anything. I’m smart enough, sure, but I’m not an intellectual. I don’t seek out knowledge. I don’t read much anymore, not like I used to. I don’t care much for researching things, even […]
