Seven months.

About to be eight, if we're really keeping count, but at this point, what's the difference? Why haven't I posted in half a year's time? Let's throw out some guesses. working on new projects crappy mental health crappy health in general OCD That last one. What the hell is that? is something I asked roughly... Continue Reading →

And it’s done.

I've polished IN THE HEART OF THE HOLLOW FOREST, and it's ready for readers. This thing that took its first form in 2011 (maybe even earlier!) is complete. I can FINALLY get this thing out there. Awesome. So what's next? Contemporary, fantasy, science fiction...? My two loves are horror and fantasy, but they usually stay close to... Continue Reading →

Mania & its new best friend, Habitica

I don't really keep it a secret anymore that I live with chronic mental illness. It's something that touches every aspect of my life. When it's impossible to hide, as it has been these past two weeks, worrying about stigma makes it worse. The only thing that makes it better is knowing other people who very... Continue Reading →

So close…

At 96,000 words, IN THE HEART OF THE HOLLOW FOREST is close to completion. The story has arrived at the climax in that glowing glass forest, and I have a strict outline in place for how the final scene goes down.

Best of 2014

Looking back, this has been an awesome year for media. Maybe not so much for the rest of us, but the stuff that came out this year was pretty all right. It made me optimistic for the year ahead. While I said goodbye to many beloved series this year, I welcomed a few more. Hopefully we'll... Continue Reading →

A serious post.

2014 is at a close, and I can barely believe it. This year has sped by too fast in some places, too slow in others. 2014 was not an easy year for me and my family, but we weathered it, and I have hope 2015 contains fewer losses. It's never easy to lose people, and... Continue Reading →

End of NaNo means one thing…

We're six days away from the end of November, and many of you know what that means. The end of NaNoWriMo looms nigh, and for many, that means the end of a draft. As writers, we all know what comes after you complete a rough draft... TIME TO MURDER YOUR MANUSCRIPT. The revision process is... Continue Reading →
