The Annoying bit
I’ve been trying to come up with the back cover blurb/teaser/copy for the new novel coming out for evah! This one just wasn’t coming to me. Most of them are a bit of a struggle, trying to boil down the novel into a few paragraphs of teaser designed to make the reader want to readContinue reading “The Annoying bit”

for love or money?
My current work in progress is a novel called The Legend of Darkness and Light. It’s a good old fashioned, balls-to-the-wall, no-deep-message-here adventure story. Kind of a tribute to guilty pleasures, I suppose. Anyway, the other day I mentioned to my friend Pete that every time I sit down to write another section, I wonderContinue reading “for love or money?”
i shitz you not!
If you’ve been living under a rock these past years, you probably still believe the only way for a writer to “make it” in the world of books and publishing is to struggle for years and years perfecting a novel, then trying very hard to find an agent who will — like the old CalgonContinue reading “i shitz you not!”
read it like you stole it!
I’ve heard some stupid things in my day, and I’ve probably even said a few stupid things in my day. But I read something today that, well it really tops a lot of ‘em.

I’ve heard countless writers claim that, in order to pen anything, be it aContinue reading “sacred cow pies”

the future begins tomorrow!
Ten points if you can name the movie that came from. Another twenty points if you realize that actually, the future is here. The future that is eBooks, I mean. I remember, back in the early days, when I started writing seriously – not when I started writing, mind you, but when I started toContinue reading “the future begins tomorrow!”
