...and across the land did the faithful lament. I am, of course, talking about the city of Lexington's attitude about losing to Louisville in basketball. They lose to them all the time in football (it's a Kentucky thing, belonging in the SEC and not giving a rat's ass about football), which is no big deal. … Continue reading Woe Betide
Should probably mention that the story I contracted and mentioned before, Wake, is going to be in the Mental Ward: Echoes of the Past horror anthology being put out by Sirens Call Publications. No idea about a release date yet, but I'll post that when I get it. Also, they're still accepting submissions, so follow this here link … Continue reading Quick Notice
Good news on the war front: sold another short story this week. Wake, a dark, creepy horror story with a bit of a humorous bent, is going to see print sometime in 2013. I'm still waiting on official word, but I have a hard "yes" from them, which is nice to have. This is good … Continue reading Good News
The countdown for Sha'Daa: Pawns is now on. T-minus three days until the release. If you're wondering why I'm so excited, it's because my story Crouching Seal, Sleeping Dragon is featured in this little anthology. Be prepared to buy it. Why? Why not? Spread the word. Sha'Daa is coming!
Tomorrow I'm going down to Louisville, KY for my second major motion picture movie role (undoubtedly Extra #1,298), so my quasi-usual Tuesday review won't be up until Wednesday. I'm torn because while I need to review Partials by Dan Wells, I also need to review Sygillis of Metatron by Ben Garcia. However, what's making it very difficult is … Continue reading Getting The Point
Nightwalker is going to crack 10,000 words. The Editor... will not be pleased. It won't be more than 10,500 (I hope) so here's to getting it done. Besides, aren't editors around to neuter shorten stories for authors? I'm certain it's in the contract somewhere... Delving more and more into the Plantagenet/Tudor dynastic reigns as I gear … Continue reading Sharpening Knives
I tore a hole in my finger last night and it sucks. However, I am not letting that deter me from writing today. I'm pulling one of my rare "Sleep is for the dead" days and trying to achieve a goal of 3,000 newly written words (no, blogging doesn't count). So far I'm at... uh... … Continue reading Now Write!
Oh wow, a day off from work. I think I remember what these feel like. I'm supposed to, uh... rest? I dunno. As I mentioned the other day, I'm waiting on two more submissions I have out right now. One of them have great chances of being picked up by the editor; the other was an … Continue reading Wibbly-Wobbly
Hey, someone felt sorry for me and went ahead and let my muse speak. Scary, right? Well, here's the link. Also, writing. I'll be around for a real update soon.
New anthology coming this fall that my story is featured in. This is your warning. Prepare for the Sha'Daa, for it is coming... Edit: the first one was not the right one. Oops.
Feeling a bit melancholy today, so I went ahead and started listening to music from the Final Fantasy series. You know, that game series that pretty much shaped my formative years (okay, Final Fantasy III and beyond)? Yeah, that one. Hey, speaking of, if it's called Final Fantasy, why are there fourteen games in the … Continue reading I Got Nothing
One more story contracted before the end of the year. The Cold, which will be featured in the horror anthology What Scares the Boogeyman? has been accepted by editor John Manning. That makes four short stories contracted this year. I'm very pleased. Who'd have thunk it that three years ago I was wondering if I'd ever … Continue reading Another Story Off
Fired off The Cold to the editor this morning after anguishing over it for two hours this morning. It appears to be done but I'm my own harshest critic, so I was very anxious this morning. Nonetheless, it's off, out of my hands, waiting for approval. That frees me up to do more writing, including wrapping … Continue reading Two Down, Three To Go
