Time once again for another episode in the Balticon 46 wrap up. This episode is a recording from the panel WordPress 101. Terri “Flynnstress” Vernon moderates the panel featuring Chooch Schubert from the band Ditched by Kate, Gary Lester from Channel 37, and yours truly. In this panel we talk about WordPress, why we use it, and how it can help you manage your online content. WordPress is a very powerful tool, made more powerful by the many plug-ins that expand its capabilities.

Show notes below the cut.


I recently got a hold of the cover art for my next short story release. At first I thought I’d hold onto it until the actual release, but now I’m thinking that I’d like to share it with folks. The story is my short story Welcome to Paradox, which I wrote for the Every Photo Tells… podcast and which first aired back in October of 2010. I’ve been polishing up the text a bit and hope to have the e-book ready to go in the next few months, but before I can do that, I still need to wrap up the writing for Perils. But until the official release, here is a quick peek at the great cover created for me by Starla Hutchton.


Some people fear birthdays. They hide them. They deny them.

Not me.

For me, a birthday is a victory celebration! Another year to stride upon this Earth, win battles, and fight off death for another day.  In the end to plunge my banner into the heart of another year and cry to the heavens that this year will not defeat me! I have taken on all that it had to dish out and I remain standing! Victorious!

But not everyone sees it like that.


To try to make things a little easier for folks to find my various projects, I’ve set up a new splash page for This new page links to each of the major projects that I have going, providing a simple launch point for anyone looking into my work. Please take a look at the page and let me know what you think of it.

Right now, it is just a basic page, but I may end up moving some things over to that site, such as some of the galleries and the Lee of the Scale blog from It will depend on what happens with the host for that site.


It occurred to me that since this is the one stop shop for all things involving Doc Coleman on the net, that perhaps a more easily guessed domain name might be in order. So now if you enter, you’ll be re-directed here to Swimming Cat Studios. Since Swimming Cat Studios is the name I’m currently operating under, I’m going to keep it as the primary domain for now. Both will get you right here.
