But you know this. Why am I telling you something you already know? Because reasons, I guess. I mean, I’m sure some exist somewhere. Haven’t been on this thing in a while, and that is one of many reasons for this particular entry. I’ve made a lot of progress this year–I published my first book, … More 2016 Can Suck It
It is officially out there in the world. Matryoshka Blues has been released, and is now available for sale on Amazon. And that’s all I’ve got. I’m a strange mix of exhausted from work, and excited beyond words for this accomplishment. I need to sleep, but I can’t. I don’t want this to end. I … More It’s alive…it’s alive!
Man, talk about surreal… The proof for MATRYOSHKA BLUES came in the mail today, and it’s a thing of beauty. A little on the scrawny side, but we can chalk that up to first-time jitters.

I’ve read this manuscript more times than I … More The proof is in the…um, proof

Nothing–and I mean nothing–is as debilitating as having to force yourself to grin and bear it. When you’re in a situation you simply can’t stand? When the mere thought is enough to make you fall to your knees and rage to the heavens like those stupid movie heroes as the camera pulls back dramatically? It’s … More Holding Pattern Delta
Today another step forward has been achieved: my business cards promoting the series came in. Yep, that’s all I got. So, um…how was your Friday?
