The only way out is through

This past weekend was Labor Day, and therefore I got a long weekend. The S.O. and some friends had planned to go on a hike sometime in late summer or fall, and they invited me along. I was slightly skeptical, but I went. I'm glad I did. But that was a humdinger of a hike,... Continue Reading →

A lifetime of juggling

My motivation has been super terrible in the month of February, probably because January kicked my butt. The dayjob got wild those last two weeks, there was some general drama, and I finished APM, the novella I had been working on, which rang in at a little under 26k. Which, by the way, you can...

Life updates and gratitude

You may remember that we bought a house recently, which was pretty awesome and all, and now I have a house and I must mow the lawn. Mowing the lawn is actually pretty nice because it's an achievable goal that you finish, for better or worse, within about an hour usually. It's also a great... Continue Reading →

The last Book of the Raksura

It is a bittersweet season, because into this season has come the last of the Books of the Raksura.* I discovered these books several years ago, and they remain one of my favorites of all time. Shapeshifting? Check. Sweet aerial lizard-people battles? Check. Awesome emotional tension? Check. Gender-bending? Hells yes. Basically it's everything I'd expect... Continue Reading →

For this post I'll tell you some cool overview stuff and for later posts I'll come back and dig into some of the experiences I think will be useful from a world-building/fact-finding perspective, just because there was...

Coming back this week has been crazy hard, what with getting back into the swing of things, and the next few... Continue Reading →

Roanoke Author Invasion 2017

What a weekend. So I want to start off with some background, here, before I talk about selling books and such. I came into this weekend a bit like a jetplane making an emergency aquatic landing. That is to say, I belly-flopped right into RAI because I was straight up out of fuel and had... Continue Reading →

Pushing boundaries

Recently, a friend and I were discussing trends in storytelling. We were talking about how, for a while, zombies were the "it" thing to write or make shows and movies about. She argued that now, the "it" thing was exemplified by shows like Westworld. I'll admit that I haven't watched Westworld yet, but I'll take her... Continue Reading →

Early post this week to update you on some upcoming events! And while we're here, some discussion of what's been going on in my life! You'll get a regular post on Friday about some fun Daughter of Madness inspiration, but stop in with me for a moment to get up to date. This weekend I will be... Continue Reading →
