September 2011

Today we are letting the Wayback Machine take us back to January 15th, 2011. We didn’t have any guests, so this one is just me, Scott RocheZach Ricks, and Jeff Hite. Join us as we send up Star Trek captains, self publishing, and author love. And somewhere along the way we actually managed to have a semi-serious discussion about the craft of writing. Give it a listen!

This time the Wayback Machine is set for January 6th, 2011, and we’ve got another episode of The Galley Table! This was a fantastic episode with guests Podcasting’s Rich Sigfrit and Mike Plested. As a way of celebrating the New Year, we were supposed to be discussing where we thought new media would go in 2011, but with a guest like Podcasting’s Rich Sigrit, the conversation moved around a bit more than usual.

Once again the Wayback Machine provides us with another Galley Table episode. This one was released into the wild on December 25th, 2010. This Christmas present contains special guests Val Ford and David Sobkowiak. Join them and the rest of the panel as we rant about reality tv, passive protagonists, vampires, and fanfic. This is also the episode where Scott decided that I’d done so many episodes of Galley Table that I no longer counted as a guest. [click to continue…]

Today I have published my first short story, The Gift, on Smashwords. The story in question was first released on the podcast Every Photo Tells… and was nominated for a Parsec Award in 2010. Now the text is available in print on Smashwords for just $0.99.

This is my first story on Smashwords, but it won’t be my last. Keep your eyes out for more news on further writing and publishing adventures. If you’d like to see more of my writing, please buy a copy of The Giftand encourage your friends to do the same. The money I make will help fund future projects, and encourage me to make more time for writing.

Return with me to December 4th, 2010, when I joined with the Galley Table crew to welcome Alex “The Gearheart” White, and Nobilis Reed to The Galley Table. To celebrate the end of NaNoWriMo, we talked about endings. Writing them, reading them, how people relate to them, and what makes a good ending.

Today we’ve set the Wayback Machine for November 24th and the release of another Galley Table. The guests for this episode are Brand Gamblin and SV Allie. In a massive fail of planning, we hadn’t planned a topic for this particular episode, and just kind of let the conversation ramble aimlessly. Which, of course, led to an excellent episode.

My second submission to the Every Photo Tells… podcast went live on October 24th, 2010. This story was an interesting challenge. The prompt photo featured a shot of a spooky face graffiti-ed onto a wall, with a man lying on the sidewalk next to the wall and box sitting at his feet. The picture was oddly engaging, but left me confused as to how to proceed. The objects in the image were discordant with each other. They didn’t fit. And that became my hook. They didn’t fit. A man out of place. And that soon became a man out of time. I’ve always been fond of time travel stories, so I wrote one of my own. Welcome to Paradox, the story of a man convicted of a crime he had yet to commit, and how his sentence nearly destroyed the fabric of the universe. Sometimes, the only person you can depend on is yourself…

The Wayback Machine has been down for a while, but it is time for me to fire it back up and mention some of my appearances that either pre-dated this blog, or didn’t get put onto the Master Feed because I was too busy to add them when it all happened. This one is from before I stood up Swimming Cat Studios. We’re going back to November 12th, 2010, when I made my third appearance on the Galley Table Podcast. [click to continue…]
