I started writing a blog post and I realized I had a whole other thing on my mind, so I needed to write about that. I’ve been following the Self Publishing Podcast for a while now. Long enough to watch Garrett go from fan, to writer with a day job, to…

Now that Yoda would make me shake in my boots.
 
Brazil-based concept artist Marco Teixeira has come up with an a fantastic piece imagining what the Grand Jedi Master ‘Yoda‘ from Star Wars might have looked like when he was young.

I’ve been talking about and showing snippets from my upcoming book for over a year now. For that entire year I’ve been calling it “Mermaid’s Curse”. The book is a Lovecraft meets high fantasy with witches, merfolk, and clerics bent on killing all the witches. The first book is how the curse happens, and the evil clerics trying to sacrifice her.

I’ve been told “mermaid” in the title might limit sales since it’s so specific … So I’d like some feedback.

Would you buy this book? Would you change the title? Suggestions maybe?

Is anyone else going to #norwescon this weekend? I'll be there! Would love to say hi. I'll even have some books if anyone would like a free one.

**

At the crest of the hill they had a clear view down into a small valley. 

A chunk of earth had been scooped out of the earth, a trench running along the ground into the divot. The hole was about fifteen feet across, though the pit at its center seemed deeper. Above them branches were broken and splintered, their refuse littering the ground below.

They scrambled down to the edge of the hole, steam rising up from the darkness.

"Was it a meteorite?" Rodney asked.

"It really looks like it," Katy said. "We need to get it before someone else finds it."

"We shouldn't go down there," Janet said, hugging her arms to her chest as she looked down into the darkness. 

"Janet, you're afraid of dark closets, and your own shadow. Of course we should go down there."

Janet gave Katy a withering stare. "That's not a closet, that's a hole in the ground. You can't see your hands in front of your face down there and might twist and ankle or something. Then how do the rest of us get you out of there? And you don't know what that thing is down there."

"She has a point," Jordan said, touching Katy's arm.

Katy pulled away. "So go slowly, and be careful. We can't just leave it there. It could be a great scientific discovery. Do you know how much someone might pay for that?"

"Me?" Jordan asked. "Since when is it my job to go down there?"
Katy stopped, turning to look up at him with wide, innocent eyes. 
"But you said you'd do anything for me," she said, taking a deep breath to give him the widest view of her heaving bosom.
"We could wait till morning," he said.
"Oh come on!" Roxxy said, her eyes rolling. "It's just a hole in the ground, guys. What are you afraid of? Spiders?"
"It's a hole with some sort of meteorite in it," Janet said.

Shaking her head, Roxxy knelt down beside the hole, swung her legs over the edge, then dropped into the darkness.

Everyone gasped, kneeling down beside the hole to try and get a better look. Roxxy, dressed in her customary black garb, disappeared into the inky darkness.



Roxxy felt the edge of the walls. Dirt and mud squished beneath her fingers, the occasional root and rock sticking out.

"Are you okay!" Janet called.

"Don't yell," Roxxy said. "I can hear you perfectly fine. It's not that deep down here."

She looked up to see their worried faces looking down on her. Part of her wanted to scoff at them for being such worry warts, but she also had the odd sense of being pleased. Happy that they were worried about her? Maybe.

She filed away the feeling and turned away, poking through the small hole. Brushing aside a bit of dirt she saw a glimmer of something in the darkness.

"I think I see something. It's glowing."

"Glowing? Do meteorites glow?" Katy asked.

"It might not be a meteorite," Jordan said.

"What else could it be? We saw it streak across the sky. Look at this hole."

"We don't really know."

Brushing away more of the dirt, Roxxy found a hole leading deeper into the earth. The glow emanated up from it. Whatever it was, she'd have to reach into that hole to try and pry it up. 

Slogging over the dirt getting on her nice leather coat, she shoved her hand down the hole, refusing to think about spiders and snakes that might be down there. Her fingers brushed over something cold and metallic feeling.

"I think I can reach it," Roxxy said, straining to get a few more inches deeper down the hole.

“Don’t touch it!” Janet shrieked, but it was too late. 

Roxxy's wrapped her fingers around the object and yanked it up.

A softball sized metallic orb sat in the palm of her hand. The surface was dimpled by pits and scars, as if it had been run over by a truck several times. An unearthly blue light emanated from within it casting a dim glow on everything around her.

“It’s so cold,” Roxxy said, her breath coming out in a whisper of fog.

“Be careful,” Jordan said. “We don’t know what that thing is.”

Roxxy lifted the orb, holding it out before her. The light broke off into a thousand particles, flickering across her face in a myriad of patterns.

“It’s beautiful,” she breathed, the puff of white whispering out and disappearing into the hot summer air.

“Bring it up here,” Rodney said, reaching down to give her a hand. 

Roxxy reached up to take his hand. As their fingers touched a spark of white light arched across the space, and Rodney jumped back, pulling his hand away and shaking it furiously.

“What happened?” Jordan yelled, running to his side. “Are you okay?”

“You okay, Roxxy?” Janet asked, looking over the edge.

“I’m fine. It was just a tiny spark,” Roxxy said.

“A tiny spark?” yelled Rodney. “I swear to god she’s trying to kill me! That felt like she jabbed me with a fucking icicle! What did you do?”

“I didn’t do anything!” Roxxy yelled back. “You offered to help, I let you. If you’re going to be a prick about it I’ll just get myself out of this hole.”
She scrambled up the slope, clutching the orb to her chest, the others watching her assent.

Best Thai in town. We've been coming here for years and have yet to be disappointed by anything we've had. Good portions fair prices, great service, and delicious food.

Incredible service. They replaced a radiator hose for me, did an oil change, topped off all the fluids, vacuumed the floors and washed my widows. The manager, James, also showed me which hoses would need replacing soon, and how to tell if they were old or not. Great customer service, and the waiting room was clean, and had coffee, juice and water to drink. All in all a great experience. Will go here again.

The staff isn't all that interested in customers. Have had better service and selection elsewhere. Only important thing seems to be the Emerald City Comic Con which this store is a big part of, otherwise not worth it.

You have to pick and choose to get the really good items. A lot of things are priced a little high, but if you just want a new paperback, or a shelf for your room a great place. Just be careful you aren't paying retail for a used item.

I had been sick for a week and finally decided to go to the doctor. This office is close to my house, and had walk in service so I went. Knowing that I had no insurance they helped keep my bill down as much as possible, but still gave me great care, and the meds I needed to get back to normal. They even have a 30% discount program for those paying up front.

This is a little shop, but with a nice selection of current titles. Cheerful and helpful staff who seems to know about the comic book industry. He also mentioned "sidewalk sales" for back issues, and was quick to help me order any in stock comics that I wanted.

This is one of the oldest walmarts i've been in, and the age shows. But they do have a lot of things, at okay prices. Just don't expect the best service. And WHY do all the cashiers wear rubber gloves? It makes me feel like they think i'll infect them.
