There are indeed times when I distrust myself, my choices. I look around me and see only evidence of my inadequacy, indeed my own foolishness. I can find not one scrap of a hint of a partial clue that I am worth the ink in my fountain pen. And if at one point or another … Continue reading Times of Doubt
First things first: Big deal, Varengo! You got all fucked up physically and mentally in the first months of 2022. So you've started a one-man campaign to make 2020 look like everybody's kind Aunt Jenny. My car stalls at traffic lights. We all got problems. There. Now all the people inclined towards having written me … Continue reading Hey, Y’all! A’memba me?
I use the term constantly now. "I gots the Covid." It's bad English and points to the author as problematic at best, but it's what Grand Funk once called "a natural fact." Not only true but there for all to see in prison-blue majesty. "Steer clear of him. He's sick." Of course, these are the … Continue reading When you gots the Covid…
See? I've brought proof! It is my happy duty to announce that Book 1 of the Cerah of Quadar series, A Dark Clock, is now available as an audiobook from Audible, and does it ever sound great!

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.
