Published two new short story collections this week. Both are full of older stories from early in my career, many of those stories never before published. The Ballad of Pigeon Lewd contains the full collection Paladin & Other Weird Tales that I published in 2012, plus the Endless Gateways stories from around 2014.

Another “new” novel
Publishing another novel today and probably over some of the weekend. I wrote “Vox Banjo” in 2011 and then never did anything with it besides a half-assed attempt at a rewrite. Now, almost a full decade later the book is published, warts and all. Psychic private detective Vicki Meyers investigates the most difficult, twisted cases.…… Continue reading Another “new” novel
Still here and publishing
Just a quick post about some of the new titles I’ve released. First some books that have sat on my hard drive for around a decade. Not the same quality that I would write now days, but I’m still proud of these books. My first ever completed book, written in 2009. https://books2read.com/u/bprVZW Another early book…… Continue reading Still here and publishing
another guinea pig photo
This time of Walter. He died this January. Still miss the old man. And no, I didn’t name him. This photo is from this time in 2017, during his prime. And with that, I have posted something every day for two weeks.
guinea pig photos
Nothing much to say. So instead of saying something, I’m posting guinea pig photos. On the left is Chloe. She loves hay and when she’s not hiding, she spends her days rumble strutting and chasing her room mate about. The rascal on the right is Zoey. She’s a cuddle-bug until she isn’t, which is when…… Continue reading guinea pig photos
off to a slow start
Just posting to keep this streak alive. The short story challenge of course is off to a slow start. And that’s okay. The clock starts ticking when I turn in the first story. If I don’t turn one in this week, at least I’ll have a science fiction story to submit into the market, and…… Continue reading off to a slow start
took a weekend off
Weirdly enough, I didn’t write any fiction this weekend. So I had a 20 day streak of every day fiction writing. Nothing awful happened. World didn’t come to an end. Just had something come up that made being creative difficult. Now I’m back to normal again. Not worried about lost time or anything. So naturally…… Continue reading took a weekend off
DIY Journal: Sales Copy Production
A problem I will have as I write short stories going forward, is coming up with sales copy for each of them. What I mean by sales copy is the back cover blurb. If I write a short story a week, I’ll need a lot of these blurbs. While they’re not necessarily hard to write,…… Continue reading DIY Journal: Sales Copy Production
the value of critique
Another late start with writing last night. Put in 400 words on “The Ghost, the Vampire, and the Jock.” It’s about 9,000 words total at the moment and still feels like I’m in the early stages of the book. And really, I can’t say much with what the book is about, because I have no…… Continue reading the value of critique
sure why not?
This is how streaks go for me. I sucker myself into going for a week. Then if I went for seven days, why not make it an even ten? If I can do a ten day streak of something, why not twenty? And it goes on from there…. I’m not real hung up about having…… Continue reading sure why not?
