New project time. My wife Kaia has been working on a new novel for a couple of weeks, and has loosely described the concept for the series as "the illegitimate love child of The Witcher, A Song of Ice and Fire, and Darksiders" in conversation with me.

The protagonist is a woman who investigates claims of the supernatural - the story starts out low-fantasy, but the supernatural is there, and its growing stronger, and things are headed towards 'oh shit' territory.

Her soundtrack choice (she often listens to music to inspire and motivate her) is Dragonforce. So speedy power metal with, like, demons and dragons and epic heroics, for the those of you unfamiliar with them. It's gonna be metal as fuck.

Now, I want to ask, is this something that people might be interested in?

For those moments when you need your shade-throwing to be on the sweet side.
 
Because why won't my lollipop be the shadiest one in the land? ‪#‎JudgeyPop‬ is here.
There really is a day for everything, isn’t there? I just found out that it’s National Lollipop Day, and thought it would be the perfect time to introduce you to my JudgeyPop. Let me tell how it all came to be. My book is a collection of essays on life, ...

Can you hide a spaceship from prying eyes? Well, probably not, as doing so would make it ridiculously expensive, largely useless, or both.

Few concepts of space warfare have inspired as much controversy (and hate mail) as discussing stealth in space, so I figured it’s time to have an article about that. For starters, though, I&#…

This needs to end up in Nintendo's executive hallway. Even if it's the localization team who did a stupid, they need to face harsh sanction for this.
 
...Wow.
After Nintendo fires Alison Rapp after a GGate harassment campaign lasting many months, now there are jokes very specifically at Zoe Quinn's expense within Paper Mario. That's... something.
I was basically boycotting after what happened to Alison Rapp, and now it's more extensive.  Plus, I get to point this out in an article I'm writing.  People DO so love to make my job easier sometimes.  Ugh.

Saurian is having a backer-organized pledge drive today. I raised my pledge, consider doing that if you can, or backing if you haven't already. The next stretch goal is for VR support at $205K, and $300K unlocking an eventual entirely new biome, with new creatures and two playable species. The multiplayer stretch goal has already been reached.

Pocket description of Saurian: It's kind of like those other survival games, but you play as a dinosaur in the Hell Creek biome - one of Tyrannosaurus rex, Dakotaraptor steini, Triceratops prorsus or Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis, with two more playable species to be added pending a vote among project backers after the campaign. So you'll start out as a baby, try to survive to adulthood so you can breed and propagate your lineage. There will also be a 'post-apocalyptic' game mode, taking place in the destroyed world of post-Chicxulub-impact Hell Creek, where the aim is simply surviving as long as you can against increasingly harsh circumstances.

And the best part is, the developers are striving to make the game as scientifically accurate as they can. Feathers! Realistic behaviors! Raptors climbing trees! Amazement!
Saurian is a video game project focused on living as a dinosaur in a dynamic open world through intense, survival-based gameplay.

Relevant.
 
An online friend is starting a new endeavor: a blog for disabled and neurodivergent writers. If this is of interest to you, you might want to check it out and help her get it off the ground. She's also interested in reviewing books that feature disabled or neurodivergent characters.
Writing is not as physically demanding as many other occupations. When you have chronic pain (and/or fatigue) however, it can feel like writing wrings the mind and body totally, leaving you drained and hurting. And, if writ...

Today is the 47th anniversary of a small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind.

Time for celebratory power metal.

Rats are smart, compassionate, and utterly fierce. Not surprised by this outcome!

Watch: A fierce struggle ensues as a mother rat fights off a snake in an attempt to save her baby. 
Rojas Montecinos Evy recently captured what she called an “amazing act of love of a mother.” Whether we call the motive love or maternal instinct, it inspired a fierce struggle. LEARN MORE: Watch a Mother Rat Rescue Her Baby From a Dramatic Snake Attack

Namibia stands as an example to the world.

"Namibia shows that even countries that start with serious disadvantages – extremes of racism, colonialism, inequality and underdevelopment – can chart a path toward shared prosperity."

That feeling when 3 minutes of bus delay mean 20 minutes of train delay. >_<
