Have I mentioned there's also a Tumblr I keep up?  Even more sometimes-book-related randomness there.

Y'know, it just struck me... did anyone make a "Winter is Coming" joke back in March? 

Dammit.  Such a wasted opportunity...

I babble.  It's what I do...
            I want to step away from actual writing rules and advice for a moment—just a moment, I promise—to address something that falls more under the publishing umbrella.             I like reading Cracked.  I think it’s...

Tagline
Full-time author, part-time journalist, occasional destroyer of worlds, former god of Deception
Introduction
I make up stuff and lie a lot.  People pay me to do it.  That either makes me a writer, a con man, or one of the support guys from Mission:Impossible.  Take your pick.

Past that, I like Doctor Who, Spider-Man, sci-fi and horror movies, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, little toy soldiers, and LEGOS.  

So probably just a writer... 

If I was a writer, I'd probably write stuff like -14-,  Ex-Heroes, Ex-Patriots, and The Eerie Adventures of the Lycanthrope Robinson Crusoe.
