Bookisodes

I’m part of a thing. Some writer friends and I are setting up a digital version of the nickle novel, but no nickle needed. Wanted? Yes. We love nickles. Or dollar bills. Mostly cups of coffee or tea. But you don’t need to. Bookisodes… Continue Reading “Bookisodes”

Pokemon: First Steps

Kess sat on the hill overlooking Pallet Town. The sun was rising, with just enough wind to make the trees rustle. It would be fall soon, the lush green turning countless colors before being stripped of the trees, scattered across the landscape as dark… Continue Reading “Pokemon: First Steps”

Monstrous Inspirations

The Mute of Abr takes place in the city of Abr, far away from Lake G’desh, where Drowning the Sands of G’desh takes place. Where religion is everything at the lake, in Abr they are animistic, praying to the sand, mountains, and salt. The salt, the… Continue Reading “Monstrous Inspirations”

Grimm Chronicles: Vol I and II

Christine Haggerty captivated me a few years ago with her blog. Through that we actually became friends, creating a small writer’s cult. Or circle. I mean really cult or circle all depends on what you do with the candles. Then I was awed by… Continue Reading “Grimm Chronicles: Vol I and II”

Eevee’s Defiance

“Know what you want to become, Trick?” I scratched my eevee behind the ear and he purred and moved into my chest. He was small, just big enough to cover my upper torso. He ignored my question, as he often did. We were nearing… Continue Reading “Eevee’s Defiance”

Learning to read Writer’s Market

I’ve started looking through the 2014 Writer’s Market book for short stories and novels. It’s been fascinating. And a warning, this is very stream of consciousness. I’m sorry. After last year, I learned a lot. If it says “We accept all nonfiction, fiction, and… Continue Reading “Learning to read Writer’s Market”
