Collecting Up the Collection

So I spent the day working on the collection. I’m having a blast putting it all together. I haven’t gone back and read these stories in quite some time, and I’m finding lots of great memories buried in them. I’ve had a couple laugh-out-loud moments (in good ways), and have just had a generally fun […]

Don’t Get Too Comfortable

Gotta love the idea of walking a mile an hour while you’re working. I guess this means that Kevin Anderson has the right idea, as he’s known to write via dictation during his daily walks. Progress: I gathered up and formatted the stories I expect will comprise the collection. I may slot a story or […]

Three Steps Forward

Lots of progress on this stormy morning. First, as hoped, the novel rewrite is complete.

Short Story Collection

I’m terribly excited to note that I’ve agreed in principle with The Merry Blacksmith Press to publish a collection of my short stories. I’ll be working to create the lineup here in the next few days, and I expect a title will shortly follow. I will, of course, post more as progress is made.

You Decide. Cool, or Eternally Infantile?

If you know me, you know I make my real living in the corporate world. I’m involved in implementing multinational, global programs that span a bunch of functions and generally deal with technology development–something that probably sounds a bit more … er … glamorous than maybe it is. Dunno. It’s what I do, so maybe […]
