Witty Title Placed Here

I’m back to editing my next book. It’s almost done, and it’s big.

I’m not going to mention it again until its done and ready to go. One thing I’ve learned in the last couple of years is don’t show off work, be it art or writing, until it’s done. Don’t use […]

Unorganized Updates

Hello, Friends!

Lots of stuff going going on, but no real thread or theme within them.

Wednesday I begin my next installment of blacksmithing classes at the Indianpolis Art Center. The first classes were a success, and I began to get a handle on what I’m doing there. I’ve got some neat stuff to […]

Self-Publishing Post Mortem

Now that the book launch period is over for Story Studios Presents Changing of the Guard, it’s probably a good time to look at what worked, what didn’t, and what I could have done better.

What Didn’t Work

Bookfunnel: No effect that I can tell

KDP Rocket: Again, no effect

Asking Fellow Authors for […]

Fantasy World Building I

This is a new series of blog posts that I’m going to write about world building for my coming books, although the same information would also help gamers. It’s a little different for gamers because the end goal is a different storytelling medium, but it’s in the same ballpark.

The setting I’m detailing is […]

More Writerly Observations

Now that the show Arrow is over, a retrospective would be nice. That is not what this is. I really enjoyed the show, although I have not seen the last season and a half, nor have I seen the latest crossover “Crises of Infinite Earths.” I may watch them at some point, but maybe […]

Observations & Lessons

I’m reading G.R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones, the first book in his massive fantasy epic. I know I’m a decade behind the curve on this, but I enjoyed the first season of the show, so I thought I would make the plunge. I’ve never read any of Martin’s other works, so this was […]

Assorted Commentary

Good morning, all my friends, fresh, foul, and furtive!

Yesterday I was quite saddened to learn of the passing of Terry Jones. Much has been made of his Monte Python association, and well it should. I grew up on that show, as did so many other people in my generation. It, Bennie Hill, and […]

This Week, Jan 20 2020

Hello, my fine friends! It’s a new week, and there is a lot of fun stuff going on. First up, Benita and I have a new video:

This project was really fun, and it was a whole load of effort! We are working on the flooring video now, and we are both sore! We […]

Thursday, Thursday…

Greetings and felicitations, my fine inter web friends! Lots of cool stuff going on!

Spire City Noir no. 2 is off to the printer. There were times it seemed like this was never going to happen, but it it has, and it is. I’ve ordered a proof copy to make sure it’s all right […]

Medieval Mayhem!

Last night, as I was doing some research, I wondered where my fascination with medieval history began. My first thought was that it must be a Dungeons and Dragons thing, but then I remembered that wasn’t it. Not by a long shot.

Thomas Becket Shrine

I remember finding a copy of Thomas Malory’s Le […]

Cool Reviews, Fun Stuff!

Hello, all you fine examples of human development.

I’ve got three lovely reviews for the advance copies of Story Studios Presents Changing of the Guard.

Kevin T. Phillips 5.0 out of 5 stars

Fast-paced and visceral, this action-packed story even tugs at the heartstrings

Make no mistake, this is a superhero story. The author […]

2020? Yeah!

Hello, intrepid people who follow this blog!

I’m not writing one of those “this is my plans for the new year” kind of things, because I’ve had all this planned out for a few years, and 2020 is going to be a continuation and finishing-up type of year. I’m all about wrapping up ongoing […]
