Thanksgiving Surprise

I spent Thanksgiving morning enjoying a surprise… and a promise… one that pandered to the whimsical child that I have, in recent years, resurrected from a cold grave. I must admit, lamentably, that such whimsy touches my heart all too infrequently these days, but I endeavor to give it life with each passing day. My … Read more…

A Warm Fuzzy for Me

I got the following in the mail the other day: We watched your video in class today. The students LOVED the introduction and were in awe of your pipe and your mohawk.They totally laughed when you called the student out for texting and even looked around the room. One 7th grade boy got nervous and … Read more…

October Installment at The Fictorians

Here’s another one of my blogs out at The Fictorians.  This one covers what *I think* is the importance of working the convention circuit if you’re a writer. Granted, it has a bit of a bias, but the benefits I’ve enjoyed as a result of attending cons are laid out pretty thoroughly. http://www.fictorians.com/2013/10/15/working-the-convention-circuit/

RMFW “Writing Great Action Scenes” Class

This past weekend the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers association held their Colorado Gold conference. It’s a three-day extravaganza of panels, classes, carousing, dinners, pitches, critiques, and awards. The hospitality suite at the end of each day was a bit like a Mos Eisley Cantina, minus the band and severed arm… and I was in good … Read more…

New mental challenges to face these days… shadows of doubts to slay with mettle and savvy and wisdom. There’s always something, and I suppose these weren’t that unexpected. They even came from the right source. It’s a wild, wacky business I picked, and like everyone else, I’ve ended up tossed about like flotsam within a … Read more…

A Consolidation of Blogs…

I’ve had some requests of late to blog on other sites, and it really has been a lot of fun. I’ve enjoyed writing essays since probably middle school, and to have peers ask me to share some of my thoughts on their websites is both an honor and a privilege. I wanted to thank the folks … Read more…

Making the Best of Patterns in the Wash

One could call it a coincidence—mere happenstance—but I prefer to consider it portent. I just got back from the 2013 Superstars writing seminar with Kevin J. Anderson, Rebecca Moesta, James A. Owen, Eric Flint and Tracy Hickman as instructors.  I’ll be delving into some of what I learned there in an upcoming post, but what I want … Read more…

Another Step Forward in the Master Plan

I got my hard-copies from WordFire Press today.  Both The Pandora Sequence and Five by Five arrived today.  For those of you who didn’t know, I’ve been doing some production work for WordFire, including eBook conversions and interior book design / layouts.  Thus far I’ve worked on titles written or including work by Kevin Anderson, Rebecca … Read more…
