July 2012

Once more, I stand victorious, having weathered the storms of another year. A lot has been thrown my way in the past year, but I’m still in the fight. While my weight loss has become more of a struggle in the past year, my health has gotten better. It still warms my heart when people tell me that I seem to be smaller every time they see me, even if I know it isn’t strictly true. While some things haven’t exactly taken off for me, I’ve still managed to move forward and gain a better understanding of the writing world that I’m trying to break into.

My plans have changed for the coming year, but I believe those changes will make me more successful in the future. [click to continue…]


OK, I’m back with Part 2 of the Balticon 46 Wrap-up, and for some reason it is not June anymore. How did that happen?

Well, things are a few weeks late, but now I’ve worked out enough to get them moving forward. So here we have the first audio from Balticon 46 panels. This audio is from a Reader’s Track panel on Friday night at 5 PM. The Panel was called Steam Powered: The Rage of the New Victorians. On the panel were Phillippa Ballantine, Tee Morris, and myself. Tee ended up subbing for our missing moderator, and even let Pip and me talk from time to time.

Show notes below the cut.

No. No, I did not. How silly of me.

I got interviewed in June. Jim Crawford, a friend of mine who recently turned horror author interviewed me last month for his blog Blood Soaked and Writing. Jim has been out of work for a bit and has thrown himself into freelance writing, having turned out two horror novels, doing daily zombie hunter fiction on his blog, and doing regular posts on writing over at NewbieWriters.com. I still don’t know why Jim wanted to interview me, but I was happy to answer his questions. The interview actually went live on June 21st, and I can’t believe that I’ve let over two weeks slip by without mentioning it here. I guess I really need to get back on the ball.

Anywho, go check out the interview, and let me know what you think. I’m sure Jim would be happy to see your comments, too.


Time once again for another trip through the Wayback Machine. Today we’re going back to April 26th, 2011, and an episode of The Shrinking Man Project. This episode was right after they discovered the blood clot in my right arm, and it is a tale of woe, stupidity, and medical neglect. And my bad attempts to sound like the Beatles. Sorry about that folks. There’s other good stuff in there to make it worth putting up with my singing. Really.

So, just sit back, relax, and enjoy this little trip into the past.
