My continual efforts to find a better free website have littered the Internet with a fragmented trail of content and randomly scatteredlinks to that content. Decisions about what to do with it all are further complicated by my changing goals. I started off many years ago with personal blogs. Afte...Read more of this blog post »
The Phoenix Ashes: Karnage (Book I) has been officially released. Both e-book and paperback versions are now available on amazon!
This was a tough, tough month for books. I spent more time reading books I had to read than books I wanted to read. Plus I found out that Netflix is losing MI-5, and I’m only on series four! *cue wailing*
One of those “want to read” books was Christa Desir’s Bleed Like Me. Gannon’s spent the last...Read more of this blog post »
So, I did a new SF Obscure on the Canadian series, THE STARLOST. It features space Amish, men in orange leotards doing dance gymnastics to other men playing music on water glasses. It also has an episode about giant bees. This was the early 70’s so long mustaches and hairy chests abound.

Ilike books, which is obvious, because I write books. I like other
things too, so I’m gonna start collecting my thoughts on the various media I use to procrastinate.
This game is only available as an early access title, which means
it’s very, very far from finished,...
Tengo mis dudas respecto a que seas Juan Soto Ivars (no muchas) pero, de todos modos, como comprenderás, no veo en qué se parece lo que he hecho a suicidio, a un harakiri (la palabra correcta sería seppuku, como probablemente ya sepas), y que creas que sea tal cosa lo dice todo sobre tu postura r...Read more of this blog post »
The execution of Charles I, king of England, Scotland and Ireland, on 30 January 1649 was unprecedented in its day. As historian Blair Worden explains, Charles' death 'left an indelible mark on the history of England and on the way that the English think about themselves', at what was the climati...

Aside from the creative writing workshops I took in college, I've generally avoided writing groups. My reasons are varied and complicated, but mostly it's because I don't like to share my work with anyone until the rough draft is finished. I find that giving it away too early takes some of the st... Read more of this blog post »
Yesterday, I decided enough was enough. It’s time to crack on in earnest with writing the next book. I started work on the outline properly last summer, but since then I’ve had so much freelance work to do, plus Christmas, that everything fell by the wayside. I can’t say I’ve been losing sleep ov...Read more of this blog post »

Frost chucked the remote aside and stepped into a walk-in closet. Moments later, he emerged shoving his arms into a sleek black trench coat. He started for the hallway and had almost disappeared entirely, but... Read more of this blog post »

If you’re new here, you should know that I’m one of those horrible people who hates to hear about other people’s dreams but constantly talks about their own. I figure this is okay because I love dogs, so that kind of evens things out and keeps my dick level low to moderate.
