Okay, I know it came out ages ago, and it's merits (and shortcomings) have been discussed. However, I just saw it, and had some thoughts. First, I didn't come to the movie as a fan of Superman. I've always felt his stories we...

Committed part-time writer
Over at his always engaging blog, Chuck Wendig gives some blunt (as always) but good advice and guidance around making that jump to a full-time writer. I'll admit that in my first reading, I didn't get much past this Do not quit your day job. I know. Your b...

KDP exclusive or list everywhere
As I immerse myself in self-publishing, there seems to be some contention (not real disagreement, mind you, just your typical internet squabble) about which is preferable (for eBooks only): 1. Utilize KDP select and its benefits (Free Promotion, Kindle Coun...

Well, Q1 is over (yes, I work in a bank.) so I figured I'd work on my self-appraisal. Now, what were my goals I set this year? First, writing: 1. Write what I want. There's nowhere near enough money coming in for me to worry ...

Writing, self-publishing and an apology
This has been a weird year or so writing. My output has been low. Well, that's not entirely true. There have been many words, they just don't add up to any completed work. I could point to many reasons. I have a new job, that demands much of my time, but th...

When I got an opportunity to ask Tom Pitts, a noir author of Piggyback – a novella, and many short stories published online and in anthologies, a couple of questions, I jumped at it. He's also edit...

In my continuing tinkeration (it's a word now people) I make some changes to how my stuff is listed on Amazon. Nothing dramatic. Just the use of a pseudonym that I considered before, abandoned, and have reused (see, tinkeration.) Anyway, as you could see  h...

Cloud Atlas (movie) - I know, not exactly recent
I finally saw Cloud Atlas. I posted a quick note on twitter that I liked it, but I've been thinking about the movie in the couple of days since. I still think its a good movie and recommend it to anyone, but there were some things that worked really well, a...

This is it - the run of my Ozark horror novel, Half-Made Girls, ends on 3/31. If you haven't checked it out yet, I'd appreciate your votes on as many of the chapters as can click on before that date. Finishing in the number one spot will earn me some much needed cash to pay for editing/new cover art/hookers and blow that will help me launch the ebook.

There are a whopping 86 chapters, so if even a few of you were to be so kind as to get to clicking, it'd be enough to seal the deal.

Thanks for your help, it's much appreciated!
