New Story @ Medium: “Hard Lines and Code”

As promised, I’ve another new short story for y’all available at Medium, so drop what you’re doing and read it! …kidding! Though I’ll admit that’d be a nice sentiment. Here’s a link to the story followed by a sample: By the Pillars, who knows how long that woman has been fighting the good fight. She…

Story Schedule: Good To Go

I’ve prepared my Medium story schedule and laid everything out until the middle of December. By that point I’ll know what put more attention into. I’d rather not post stories that don’t have natural endings. So, every Monday there will be a new short story – and one in four parts – posted first thing…

Me at Medium

First of all WordPress needs to stop buggin’ me to “try Gutenberg” when I’m already using it, though I suppose it can’t tell… feh. I expect too much of technology, most of the time. Speaking of expectations … I guess that’ll have to do as a segway. Which, by the way is a word, thanks,…

Minor Edits

Soft Hearts, Hard Memories hasn’t been … shall I say, popular … though it does appear to enjoy interest among a certain demographic… what it needed was some editing. Just some typographical stuff here and there. That’s one of the challenges of being ones own editor and publisher. Not that I expect my work to…

Why I’m Saying “No Thanks” to Doctor Who as a Woman

You see, if the Doctor can become female, why bother? Why not do both? Or neither? Once you start down that rabbit hole, there is no end. What does anything matter if being female, or being male, has no implication or affect on the fabric of humanity?

What Drew Me Back Into The Marvel Universe

I can sum up my interest in Marvel heroes in a few words: Selfless, smart, strong, vulnerable and real. Peter Parker embodied those qualities in The Amazing Spider-Man, which my Dad and I read for decades. Well, a decade, but that’s a long time for a comic hero. From that point I watched bits and…

Novel Updates for August 2018

Now I understand why self publishing is so perilous. The good news is that Soft Hearts, Hard Memories is now ‘name your price’ with the suggested price of $4.95. The bad news is that ordering physical copies from Amazon is so untrustworthy that I’ve pulled the edition from their store. I had determined some time…

Why Thanos is Infinity Wars Weakest Link

Of all the film’s many faults, I’ve had some difficulty deciding what to focus on to illustrate most effectively just where Marvel went wrong with the Avengers: Infinity Wars. I’d like to use this opportunity to explain just how they managed to turn their most well received franchise into a dull rehash of ignoble tropes….

Soft Hearts, Hard Memories now available at Smashwords!

As promised, a physical edition novel will be available very, very shortly thanks to Amazon… but it won’t be the first volume of the Greatshale Chronicles. No sir. It will be, quite out of the blue, Soft Hearts, Hard Memories, a heavily edited and revamped novel originally entitled Bold Curves. It was Aaran’s big foray…

As promised, Patreon updates…

My process may be low tech, but if you’re at all how I go about designing cover art, then by all means hop on over to my Patreon where I’m regularly posting sketches and my thoughts on the matter. Particularly, how I am working and re-working the artwork for A Coiled Majesty. There’s a lot…
