Writing To Your Audience

oh, hai! I sort of forgot this was Saturday... I've had first weekend, you see, and now I'm working on second weekend. It's blissful, and I was all focused on family and not thinking about writing at all. Well, except for Thanksgiving morning where a friend inadvertently gave me a story prompt and I had...

Black Friday Promo Thread

I hope everyone is sufficiently recovered from all the food and football yesterday to do a bit of online shopping. So why not pick up some books for your early holiday shopping? Here are a few titles from some of the Mad Ones for your reading pleasure. All the Plagues of Hell by Dave Freer... Continue Reading →

Thanks for the arguments

For our household, this is a day of negative thanks. Really, things could be a lot worse. The Organizer and the grandkids could have waited to get sick until this afternoon, thereby ensuring that the First Reader and I had a chance to catch the really awful virus going the rounds in Hutto.

I just barely survived the last five day weekend, and I’ve developed some delightful upper respiratory crud recently. While I’m hitting it with a full court press (minus prescription antibiotics, which... Continue Reading →

Stay tuned

A post is coming but will be delayed due to circumstances beyond my control. (In other words, I have to go rescue a friend who has car trouble and has to get to work.) I'll be back as quickly as I can with something. In the meantime, if there's anything you'd like me to post... Continue Reading →
