Things Are Happenning

December 23rd, 2008

Yeah, I know you’ve heard that before, but this time I really mean it. Honest. I purged the Novel from as part of the preparation for beginning work on Book 2 and other small side projects. Unlike some writers I’ve researched I find that my mind works best when it’s allowed to wander off […]

Interesting Discussion

December 18th, 2008

Over at Dean’s World there’s an interesting discussion regarding Zsallia Mareiko as the two of us seek to embarque on a sequel to book 1.

Things should start happening

August 10th, 2008

I’ve been laying low for quite a while, what with the kids out of school and all, plus I built a new office in my basement… which led to a strained Achilles tendon and a bad ciatic nerve. It sucks getting old, don’t let anyone tell you different. Anyhow, I’m going to clean up […]

It’s Alive!

August 10th, 2008

I think I’m finally over the hump with this writing thing- I’ve been putting it off and putting it off, but I really do want to go back to daily posting and getting my head around the second book. I talked to Dean and he’s up for taking on an editing role- he’s still not […]

Short Fiction – The Oak Tree

May 8th, 2008

I like splitting wood, I always have. Since the day I turned thirteen I’d made a habit of putting in some time with the wedge, hammer and axe- first because my old man told me to, later because it just produced a kind of peace inside me. “Zen”, some people would call it. It felt […]

Decisions Made

April 21st, 2008

I’ve been dithering on the writing front for a few months now. Little bits here and there, plus the proofing of the novel, but nothing substantive. It’s troubling because I want to write more than anything else in this world. The problem is Zsallia. I need to give her up as a character and move […]

The Chapters That Sent Us Over The Edge

February 20th, 2008

Dean Esmay and I worked for close to three years to create our novel, Methuselah’s Daughter. It was a great experience and I’ll never regret doing it, but it was far from a perfect collaboration. One issue that has always nagged at me is the how and why of Zsallia’s immortality, and when we began […]

“I ain’t dead yet!”

January 7th, 2008

But I might as well be for all the attention this site has been getting. I’ve been finishing up the proof copy of Methuselah’s Daughter along with a possible rewrite of the epilogue. Between that and the holidays… I slack, therefore I am, I guess.  I’m deciding what to do with this place- it may […]

Blooking Central

October 23rd, 2007

Blooking Central is a blog by Cheryl Hagedorn specializing in articles about blogs that have made the transition into books. It is not a book review, rather she explores the mechanisms of how a blog can be transformed into a book- what has worked, what hasn’t and what services are out there for people interested […]

Methuselah’s Daughter, Part 3, Chapters 21, 22, 23 & 24

October 15th, 2007

More chapters (21, 22, 23 and 24) are up at Methuselah’s Daughter. I’ve been trying to keep a running commentary on the chapters as we go, but somehow it’s just not happening. So sue me. Lots of what happens in these chapters are the direct result of arguments between Dean and I. Arguments about how […]
