I set out a routine to post two times a week - should I count reblogs? No. Twice a week. That means I have to find my desk - please don't ask! - and do a post today. Somewhere in there, under the piles of 'stuff' is a timber desk. On that timber desk is … Continue reading That’s a Desk?
I have a tag: Fibber, Fabricator and Teller-of-Tall-Tales. That, to me, is three things that give the person who reads them some indication of what they're in for. An account that may or may not be truthful, honest, or even possible. A storyteller invests a lot of things in the story. There may even be … Continue reading The Three Things
At the beginning of the year I made a plan for 2018. And now it's June. It's the middle of my plan - do I dare look at the plan and see how I've done? Of course - I'm a masochist, love to inflict pain on myself - and I have to measure the tread … Continue reading Mid-year blues – or reviews?
Probably not what you expect. I'm sure most writers understand the fight or flight response. But guess what? There are three responses. Yep, three. What are they? Fight, flight and freeze. And they each lead into each other. The freeze response is usually the first. It's the immediate gut reaction, that hard knot that stops … Continue reading F, F, ‘n F
A few more hours to get Not On The Cards free. A ticking clock, forever moving forward, rewards only those who step in front to take advantage of the brief moment. Time 'til it's finally over: Tuesday, May 15, 2018, 11:59 PM PDT
This weekend only - Not on The Cards is free at Amazon. An urban fantasy with soft sci-fi and arcane elements. A simple mistake, to fall in love. Worse, to bear the child in secret. Worst of all is when her baby is stolen at the birth. A mother will do anything, travel all … Continue reading I’m Free, I’m Free – Book Promo
Of course it's a push - I want to let you know that Not On The Cards is going free this weekend. Only this weekend. Which means, go there this weekend, rapido, and get it. And if you do get it, please do a review. There are many reasons I like to see the reviews - … Continue reading What to Read this Weekend
Scene 1 The big event commenced two days hence, when the three moons eclipsed in front of the Red Sun. So much work to get done before then. A perfect reason for Terrani to be where he was, and not down there. To Terrani’s left and above his hidden ledge was the main wind-eye entrance … Continue reading The Second Battle for the Wild Hunt
Songwriters write hundreds of songs in their lifetimes; poets pen thousands of emotions. Lyrics spin from their minds and pen because they must, must, must be given to the world. Artists paint, composers create, playwrights play, writers write ... it's a compulsion. They don't stop at one or two, do they? Why then do some … Continue reading If I should Die
The mss for the Valki story went via a submit to a trad. publisher. I do this occasionally; okay, once a year I submit to one of them. Two competitions and one sub to a publisher. One thing is a constant with these things. It happens after it's sent. I do a re-read about a … Continue reading The Final Words
