So I may have mentioned that my writing and business partner Craig A. Hart and myself have started a new website which is going to be a hub for all of our writings, both solo and corporate. And is always the case with Craig and I, when we do something, we do it up big. … Continue reading e2books, Bruté?
So, I write books. Sometimes I do it in beautiful isolation, locked away with my own thoughts, ready to make my own mistakes and claim my own victories. Sometimes I write with this Craig A. Hart fellow, trying my best to keep pace with him, but really just doing enough work so that I can … Continue reading Regarding the Cleanup of Old Business
Book reviews are very important, especially to the independent writer. To all writers, I suppose, but us guys without the sweet publishing contract live and die by them. I further suppose that I should clarify a bit. I'm not going to lie and tell you that certain reviews don't make you feel really good. Nor … Continue reading Reviews
Etta James, people, had one of the most soulful voices in the history of modern music. I remember hearing her song "At Last" used in a commercial several years ago, which brought it back onto my radar after first having heard it in my teens.

The kids are all fine, but Pops has taken up hemp farming..." That sort of thing. But, to quote the band Genesis, … Continue reading 2020. Amiright?
I don't, as a standard practice, talk a lot about a project while I'm working on it. I believe at one point it was difficult to shut me up about my latest WIP. Even when Craig Hart and I were writing the SpyCo novellas within the past few years I was prattling on and on … Continue reading When a Story Demands to Be Written
Episode 11 is now available I may have mentioned, once or twice, that I co-host a podcast called Good Sentences. If you haven't checked it out go ahead over and take a look, (after you finish reading this, obviously!) This isn't really a plug for the podcast. If it were, I'd probably be a lot … Continue reading Productive Despite Myself
Perhaps the best thing to do, here at the outset, it to review some recent events. Hold on a second while I double check some dates... Okay, got it! On 4 February, Craig Hart revealed to his VIP Readers Group, that a seventh book in the Shelby Alexander Thriller series was being written, and that … Continue reading Recent Goings On
There is something special about a real live, out of the blue surprise. Every now and then it's actually a pleasant thing, this crazy shaft of light out of no where. In my writing career it's happened to me twice. No. That's a lie. In writing, to one degree or another, every time I sit … Continue reading Something of a Surprise
