  • Endorsement Quote

    January 22, 2022 by

    This week I was asked to provide an endorsement quote for an upcoming sci-fi novel. I happily said yes and have started on the novel. I’m a few chapters in and think the author has created an original world thus far. I will not provide the author’s name or the work yet but I am… Read more

  • Query Time

    January 13, 2022 by

    I haven’t made a lot of posts about my latest WIP that is now complete. Though I usually announce what I am working on, I have kept this one under wraps. It is always interesting to see the feedback from an announcement but it’s always a difficult decision to let everyone know what I’m doing.… Read more

  • Take Care of Yourself Part III

    January 11, 2022 by

    I got the results back from my MRI and the road ahead is going to be an interesting one. There are some short-term solutions but a knee replacement or two will be in my future. Though I will have some solutions, the problems are causing me to quit my second job. I do believe that… Read more

    Disclosure: I am not endorsed, getting paid, or receiving any benefits from Rode. I am new to this whole podcasting venture but I must say that Rode’s Podcaster Pro has made jumping into podcasting a piece of cake. I did a couple episodes as a test and got some feedback from the listeners. Some light… Read more

  • Simpsons Update

    December 27, 2021 by

    I got this awesome Simpsons Monopoly game to add to the collection and it coincided with the news that my application to be a Simpsons’ analyst is under review. This is still a long shot but I am still trying to stay positive as I would love to get part of this study. Wish me… Read more

  • Take Care of Yourself Part II

    December 15, 2021 by

    It has been one week since I returned from my vacation and it has been one week of working only one job. Though I started taking one weekend a month off, it was odd to have a full week and weekend of having only one job. I took my first vacation in almost 6 years… Read more

  • Take Care of Yourself Part I

    December 14, 2021 by

    Here’s a rare personal post. I am currently on medical leave from my second job due to my knee. For months now there has been a sharp pain in my left knee. At times it feels like it’s tearing and at times it feels like something is being stretched. This has made bending, kneeling, walking… Read more

  • What to blog about?

    November 2, 2021 by

    I was given advice by one of my publishers on blogging and it was simply to post about more than just writing. Make posts about where you’re going and of you having fun. I do not disagree with them at all but my problem is that I am limited to life outside of work and… Read more

    October 24, 2021 by

    I’ve been a frequent listener to Crime Junkies for just over a year or so now which makes me a bit late to the game. Through their IG page I learned of an offer to write a short story that could be features on the next season of Full Body Chills. I just at the… Read more

  • Simpsons Analyst

    October 19, 2021 by

    So I took a long shot and applied to be a Simpsons analyst sponsored by Platin Casino. I know there will be hundreds of thousands of applicants so the odds of me getting accepted will be slim but its worth a try. Growing up I wasn’t allowed to watch The Simpsons. Bart’s attitude created a… Read more

  • A Book By Its Cover

    October 11, 2021 by

    My publisher of Dark Days has a really awesome way of selecting book covers. The authors are given 4 designs and 2 are chosen between the likes of the author and the company. Those two are then placed online and views get to decide the winning cover. The cover that won was not my favorite.… Read more

  • Editing

    September 14, 2021 by

    I have always stressed the importance of editing and hiring an editor. My editor has been with me for almost two years now, maybe three, but she is amazing. Dark Days wouldn’t have been published if I hadn’t met her but I have some sad news. She is taking a year and a half break… Read more

  • Raise your horns

    September 14, 2021 by

    I was MIA for a bit due to going out of town for a guy’s weekend. It was the first getaway in 3 years and I must say it was needed. We saw some concerts, did some hiking, and ate way too much junk. I was off from both jobs, took a break from writing,… Read more
