PDF Saves The Day!

January 8th, 2009

So, I finally fixed my issues with the novel posts. I had to convert the original Word 2007 documents to PDF and I’m much more pleased with the look, I must say. The Fonts and formatting are better preserved and the whole thing is so much easier to read. So, once again, it’s all right […]

WordPress problems

January 6th, 2009

So, I posted the Novel and then discovered that anything bigger than about 20000 words went to blank grey after that point.  I tried reposting using IE7 instead of Firefox and now everything looks great, sort of, as long as you’re using IE. Anything else and it’s a crap shoot, so if anyone stumbles across […]


January 1st, 2009

I finally finshed the updated epilogue for Methuselah’s Daughter and posted Part Four, along with the Afterword and the Zsallic language glossary (based on proto-indo european and purely the creation of the Reverend Paul Burgess). So, it’s all there. For free, even- I may never get around to massaging it into the right format for […]

Just To Prove A Point…

December 23rd, 2008

The first three parts of the 3rd Edition are now available at the Novel link. Part Four will be following shortly- turns out I hadn’t finished fixing the epilogue, but it’s really just a paragraph or two. We had an extensive dictionary of the “Zsallic” language in the original editions- I’ve removed it from this […]

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 […]

A change in the air

April 29th, 2008

I’ve been kicking about, considering all the possibilities since deciding to put my infatuation with Methuselah’s Daughter to rest. I still have a few stories kicking around that really should be finished, a few others that are mostsly finished and should be posted- all this if only to start putting up some content on a […]

New Amsterdam

March 5th, 2008

So I caught the pilot episode of Fox’s New Amsterdam last night. Obviously a show about an immortal living secretly amongst the general population would pique my curiosity. In particular I was interested to see what similarities might exist between Amsterdam and Zsallia, but I was also keen to spot the differences between them. All […]

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 […]
