What Have I Done?

What Have I Done?
I’ve had a Patreon account for a while. I’ve been backing a handful of worthy folks and efforts for several months. It’s been very rewarding to know that I’m supporting my fellow artists in chasing the dream. As many of you know, I’ve been hard at work on writing a short story a week for 2016. ...

SMART Goals

When I was a manager at a past Day Job, we had to take a 2.3 million hours worth of classes on “how to manage” and related topics. 99.99999% of the classes were absolutely worthless to me in my daily life, the Day Job, every job I’ve had since, and probably everything I ever will ...

Obligatory 2014 Recap

Obligatory 2014 Recap
Wow. What a year. Ups. Downs. Even some sideways curves thrown in. I’m not going to go through every, gritty little detail and bore you to death. Here are some highlights of the year for me! The year started out with a bang as the government decided it wanted back taxes on my grandfather’s estate. I ...

One-Thousand, Eight Degrees
I’ve told the story of the night my arm was nearly amputated in a car wreck on a horrific autumn night in 1988 many times. I was encouraged by a few people to write the story down for others to learn from. About the same time I received this encouragement, there was an open call ...

Carnival of the Damned

Hey everyone, I wanted to let you know that my story, “The Carnival’s Children” was just accepted into Evil Jester Press‘s anthology entitled, “Carnival of the Damned.” It is being edited by Henry Snider and David C.

Trifecta of Rejections

A few days ago I received a rejection notice (and one of the better ones!) from PseudoPod. I had submitted ZOMBIE C.L.O.W.N.S. to them and their very nice letter said the story was too humorous for their market, and the letter used the plural words “we” and “us.” This meant I made it past the ...
