Jujur, aku sebenarnya tidak pernah bercita-cita jadi penulis. Penulis itu penipu massal. Penulis fiksi maksudnya, seperti aku sekarang. Kerjanya menjual mimpi-mimpi yang jadi penyebab utama banyaknya perempuan jaman sekarang yang delusional, berharap akan bertemu laki-laki sempurna seperti di nov...Read more of this blog post »
The brilliant author Alexandra Duncan, who also happens to be a good friend, recently debuted her first book. SALVAGE is an intelligent YA sci-fi that reminded me of Margaret Atwood's writing style. I loved the book, the detailed world-building, and the feminist message the book had. So when Alex...Read more of this blog post »
HOLY SMOKES! I think my skin is still on fire from this incredibly written, hot-steamy-sexy-can’t-stop-turning-the-pages, read! Who knew I could tear into a book and eat it for breakfast, lunch AND dinner? Well, that’s exactly what I did, folks…it’s been swallowed whole and is now deliciously ch...

So, I finally did it. I took the plunge and came out to visit a few of my fans. It was a pleasant experience. Humorous mostly. The ladies were so gentle, as if I was going to run away if the crowd got too thick. “You okay?” was a constant. And, other than a developing cold that had me running bac...Read more of this blog post »
I sent off a shorter story today, a longer flash fiction “real-life horror” piece to a newer venue offering semi-pro rates. We’ll see how that fares. I did more work on my fairy-tale mash-up and I’m still waiting on that third rejection from Simon 451. I submitted “Sifting the Ashes” later than t...Read more of this blog post »

Jake is mere hours away from his first surgery that will begin the process of becoming a cyborg. He's nervous, of course. But he's not as nervous as Aaron, a cyborg who is preparing for his last procedure before he completes h... Read more of this blog post »
Our times require leaders who are not only intelligent, but wise. Wise leaders develop strategies that target the greater good, not just an organization or individual. The more that companies, communities and the world-at-large appoint such leaders, the better off we will be. And the more skille...Read more of this blog post »
in his ongoing video art work of “speaking portraits,” poet/artist George Quasha puts an impossible, but unavoidable, question before poets of all kinds and in many places: what is poetry? In response poets let us in on their private space of poetry definition. This intimate view of speaking fac... Read more of this blog post »

I'm taking a break from writing. Most importantly I'm taking a break from social media. At the moment I have no intentions of publishing another MM genre book. I apologize. This is a decision that's been long in coming. I plan to re-release Wicked Game in the next day or two and if I write again... Read more of this blog post »
There’s still the twilight of the night.
The world’s so young in its proceeding,
That there are countless stars outside
And each one, like the day, is bright
And if the Earth could so decide,
She’d sleep through Easter in delight,
Hearing the Psalter reading.
There’s still the twilight of the nigh... Read more of this blog post »

Imagine a Carthage sown with salt, and all the sowers gone, and the seeds lain however long in the earth, till there rose finally in vegetable profusion leaves and trees of rime and brine. What flowering would there be...
Some fella I don’t know sent out a group email the other day, complaining that writing and marketing combined with real life is just too much, so he’s ‘deleting his book and shutting down social media and the blog’ until such time as he makes his millions to hire people to do it all for him.

A little man dressed in green
played upon a tambourine.
He slipped near the edge,
took a tumble and a fall,
crawled under the door
and into the hall.
He was oh so tiny.
He was oh so small.
There’s no more to tell.
It’s over. That’s all.Read more of this blog post »

My dad’s scientific expertise lies in the area of dairy chemistry. He knows, on the cellular level, how milk is made, and what happens to it as it travels the food chain and the digestive tract. Fifty years ago, he said margarine was a bad idea. Nobody really understood what happened digestively...Read more of this blog post »
