The Journey: Novella Thoughts pt.3

Ok, let's go.  See that guy next to these words?  That's me.  Well, 35 pounds heavier, but I assure you it is me.  See that one book in front of him?  Now it would be 13 anthologies with him.  And now the solo stuff is coming.  The pic is from Horrorfind Weekend in 2011 where I read …

On “Lights Out” and Interview with Nate Southard!

Nate Southard is brutal.  His writing is tight and visceral.  In the short time I've been exposed to his work, I've devoured almost everything he's published.  He's brought us the cruelty of Just Like Hell, a view from the end of the world in This Little Light of Mine, and the will to survive the …

Is Writing a Job?

I already have a full-time (plus some) job.  I put in a ton of hours and sometimes when I get home, the muse is toast and it takes a great deal of rum to awaken it again.  Every so often, by the time that happens, I'm asleep and my dreams freak me out.  The muse …

Hop on the Bus for the Summer of Zombie Tour!!!!!!!!!!

Some Random Musings…AVENGERS!!!!!

Ok, I'm going to take a moment to wax poetic about The Avengers.  Marvel Studios did an incredible job bringing their superhero franchises together in one big kick ass movie.  It helped they had this planned all along with each movie adding something toward the whole (if you stayed after the credits that is...).  The …

The Journey: Novella Thoughts Pt.2

I sit here working on some short stuff and preparing to take the next step into a larger world.  Soon, I will begin the editing process and rewrites on In Memoriam, my first novella and really a labor of love.  Part 1 set the stage with the current stage the novella is in, but tonight …

The Year So Far…(and a pretty good one to boot!)

I started out the year with some modest goals while I tried to build on the beginning success of last year.  2011 was my first full year of writing and I finished the year with 10 stories in 8 anthologies.  My goal was 5, so I thought I did ok.  Raising the bar higher for …
