If I'm reluctant to go back to a manuscript, or I find myself staring at an empty page not knowing how to continue, it usually means that something doesn't work, and that I have to take a long, hard look at my planning/plotting/character motivation - that sort of thing. I'll either take a long walk on which to do some pondering and free association (aka day dreaming), or I'll sit down with a roll of paper and some crayons to puzzle things out with a generous amount of arrows, underlinings and circles.(less)

… I guess we”l see if there lays an invincible summer within me.


I have received my Reversion of Rights letter from Riptide Publishing, and all my books have been pulled from the Riptide website. It will take a little longer until they disappear everywhere else.


I’ve removed all images of cover art I have posted anywhere, because the copyright for the covers is Riptide’s.

G.B. Gordon is on page 94 of 440 of Into the Drowning Deep: Great intro. But this is Chapter 7. I'd be good without any further repetitions and actually getting a bite into the action.

Fantastic prose, funny in places, a bit gimmicky, a bit rambling. The prose has to counterbalance some meh there, but pulls it off easily. Read it for the style.

“Maybe it was possible to relinquish control. He could do this, with Bengt he could. Give himself up and fly. He closed his eyes, let himself be pulled in by the touch. Bengt's arms. Bengt's hands on his thighs, arms, chest. Lips and tongue on neck and shoulders, the need for more. 'Don't stop.”
