It’s hell to wait for the next book!

Between my day job and just life in general, Rinda and I can’t always churn out books as fast as we would like.

And sometimes, we need to tap the brakes or switch gears as new ideas occur to us.

We’ve been busy already this year.

Since the start of 2018, readers h... Read more of this blog post »

The Cackle of CthulhuThe Cackle of Cthulhu by Alex Shvartsman

*** Possible Spoilers ***

A collection of short stories taking a whimsical look at the Cthulhu myth is a great way to wile away a warm lazy summer afternoon while sitting beside a lake. Some stories were more humorous than others but... Read more of this blog post »

My name is Kevin McKeon, and I wrote the novel Strutting and Fretting, about a struggling young actor finding his way in a regional theatre in the summer of 1980. The book came to me pretty naturally; a great deal was based on personal experience, and the protagonist's outlook on life at the time... Read more of this blog post »

What do you prefer in a romantic story- sex for the sake of having sex (no real storyline they just sort of go at it with very little preamble) or would you rather read about a couple falling in love and the sex kind of falls in with the storyline?

in the doing of a thing there is often a lull and in that lull a curvature of worry that perhaps something has too quickly taken shape and so one might be led to explore creating, not to make, but to evoke and I will attempt, here, to do that and hope it is a space that takes up only its own.

Where the first episode of Castle Rock sets up the story and characters, the second episode expands on them. I feel this will be a show with no filler episodes. In fact, there appears to be multiple stories going on at once. So much happened it’s actually difficult to summarise it all in one post...
