The Journey II: Mission Completed (sort of…)

Four days ago, I typed the words, "The End" (or "To Be Continued" depending on what happens next) on my first novel, Southern Devils.  What started out as a short story with a very sordid past, finally became the book I hoped it would.  Right now, I'm taking a few days to catch up on …

The Journey II: Out From the Shell

Growing up, I hated to talk in public.  I still do, but I'm more comfortable with it now.  Before I started writing for real, I really just liked to stay locked in my shell and go through life quietly.  Most of this I believe is due to my really bad self-esteem issues.  This part of …

What’s Going on in That Head of Yours?

Sometimes inspiration can come from the strangest places.  Hiking around a local wetland area for instance can give you such nice symbols like the one pictured here.  From the wooden bridge I found this on, I looked out, observed the dragonflies buzzing about, and I stared at the murky water below.  That my friends is …

Goodbye KnightWatch Press, We’ll Miss You. UPDATED!!!!!

The beginning of 2013 starts with a death close to me and my work.  In the last few days, David Naughton-Shires announced he was closing KnightWatch Press.  Like most small presses in the current climate, it became to much of a draw on his personal finances.  David and crew recently published four of my 100 word …
