What if the moon had a portal
A way out of hell
What if the earth crashed into the sun
Go to sleep never to wake well.
What if God had enough
And said this was a bad plan
What if we are being tested
To see what is man.
What if your soul was being tried
The earths' rotation coming to a still

Well, got a new order this morning, fairly small one so I've already done the edit of what they had already written and provided the 1500+ words that they wanted. Feeling pretty good this morning in spite of how utterly drunk I had gotten last night. Still gotta work on that novella, finis... Read more of this blog post »

Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me that, when I waked,
I cried to dream again."

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked this character driven novel. In the midst of action and suspense, the characters learn things about themselves despite all their attempts not to.

Lykos snarled as he took a man’s arm off at the shoulder. They kept shooting him with silver bullets. The amount of waste was starting to become annoying. He used the arm to strike the last one across the face, sending the man flying back over the balcony.
“Wow.” He looked over to see Laura. ...Read more of this blog post »
Alex took me out to the desert north of Phoenix. It was an odd choice, considering out here the heat could rise and make seventy degrees feel like a hundred, but he said that we couldn't go to an indoor shooting range because I wasn't eighteen.Again, my age brought up as a hindranc...

“And you shall listen to my every demand:”
“Take this keyboard from my hand,”
“And present your writings to all the land.”
Yes, it is all true: I am obsessed with poems, narrative poems to be more precise, narrative poems that rhyme to be ultra-precise.

Ooops, I did it again! Since we had such a dismal hatch a week or so ago during the sudden heatwave, I just might have gotten some more chicks! I mean what was I to do?

I always used to tell myself... odd things.
Like, make weird predictions.
For example, I’d be rooting through my wallet, find a $2 bill, and in my head, I’d say something like, "you're going to spend that $2 at a gas station in Montauk" or, "2 years from now, the t-shirt that guy was wearing at... Read more of this blog post »

“Turning into a wolf once a month is easy?”
“It’s predictable, and wolves are beautiful. I’d swap at once.”
“So what’s your affliction?”
“Weather turns warm, boom! I turn into a sloth. Can’t do anything.”
“I’m so sorry.”
5/5 stars. This is top drawer crime writing, based on strong, likeable characters you will root for.

[image error]Since I became a novelist, many people have asked me how I “got into vampires.” My typical response is that I have been a fan of Gothic Horror since I was very young, that I read Bram Stoker’s Dracula when I was nine years old or so and that I have just been drawn to the genre.

The English language is rich with terms to describe the outdoor world (many of which have been borrowed from other languages), such as coteau and coulee, jaral and jetty, savanna and sawtooth.

This is the third time I agree to go to this museum. I'm not a big fan, but my friend had never been and we took the kids (ages 6, 9, 11, 11).

They did have some new video games (although I missed some that... Read more of this blog post »

Redemption is a beautiful thing. There is something, dare I say, romantic about someone with power and position plucking a nobody from the crowd and claiming them as their own. Perhaps that’s why I’ve so frequently heard the Gospel compared to a fairy tale story. A king sweeping the lonely girl a...Read more of this blog post »
