After working for an inordinate amount of time on Hybrid Space, it is my pleasure to announce that I have finished and am now seeking publication for it. I will be editing the Feast of Yule, and working on book 3 of Fallenwood – Betrayer, when I find the time to…Peace out!
Cleaned up the html on the Archives 2011 page of the Torchlight reviews page. Soon I’ll be combining all three pages into one archive page. I’m almost through with the final edits for Hybrid Space – hoping to have it done by the end of the week, when I leave for my much-needed, long-awaited VACATION!!!!
So I’ve done a lot of formatting work on the website. Hopefully it looks a bit nicer. Eventually I’ll get my reviews onto the Torchlight reviews page (transferred from Goodreads). I managed to get the images up on my art gallery page, and…this is the best part – I’ve finished the VERY rough draft of Hybrid Space. This weekend, I’m going to be working on polishing it up so it actually looks like a novel, and I’ll work on filling in parts where it says things like INSERT TECHNICAL JARGON HERE and INSERT FUNNY STORY HERE and such. I hope to have a finished, polished-up story soon. I’ve enjoyed writing it. When it’s all done, it’s gonna be a blast. You’ll see.
Woo Hoo! Thank goodness I know a thing or two about HTML. I’ve solved this dilemma and I’ll be getting the images back on the site ASAP!
Over and out!

Good afternoon, everyone! Well, I am currently working on Hybrid Space (yes, still) and I’ve finished up with writing my Fallenwood-themed holiday story, “The Feast of Yule”. Be sure to look for it soon! With this particular story, I’ve deviated from the normal theme of my own perilous road and its dangers, to a theme that’s a little more pleasant. The title of “The Feast of Yule” could just as easily be “What Autumn Means to Me” and I included as much of the sweetness of it as my heart dares to – being up in the woods, picking apples in an orchard, the breezes, the smell of apple pie and cinnamon, honey and pinecones and being around people you love. Can you tell I’m getting antsy for fall? Here in Sac, it’s gotten a bit cooler lately, but it still sort of feels like summer. Anyway, off to get some more writing done! Take care!
That’s right! Want to be able to read Forgetting Fallenwood when you’re sitting on light rail in the morning? I do! And now, it my great pleasure to announce that you can.
Melange Books has sent Forgetting Fallenwood to Lulu, where you can order an actual copy in paperback form.
Here’s the link:
So I have updated the “About Me” page to include a list of my works to date. I was talking with a friend of mine and had gotten into the habit of saying, “…but I’m not in print yet” when I realized that yes, I’d been in print twice, and that I’ve been “in print” for a long time.
The only things I didn’t add to the list were a couple of scholarly papers I’d self-published a while back after being rejected by about half a dozen literary journals, to give myself a kind of vindication. The rest are sincere works.
The galleries don’t seem to be working. I’ll be looking into this.
Meanwhile, here’s something to ponder on: I saw a guy on light rail with a t-shirt that said, “Find your Achilles’ heel, before a Trojan does”. This of course refers to Homer’s Illiad, and how Achilles was struck in the heel by the arrow of Paris, because the heel was Achilles’ only vulnerability after his mother held him by the heel to dip him into the river Styx and give him a kind of invincibility.
So the message seems to be, find your weakness and know it, guard it, before someone else finds & exploits it to their advantage.
So it was originally a lot of work when I switched my site over to this one, and I didn’t get the chance to go over the pages with a fine-toothed comb. Now I’m going to be editing the pages on this site when I can, one page per day and eventually it ought to be lookin’ pretty good.
Still working on Hybrid Space and waiting on edits for Fallenwood 2, and every once in a while, my muse will give me a scene from Fallenwood 3 or 4. Crazyness!
Hi there, everyone. My apologies for the extended leave of absence, but I am back to my old ways and I’ve heard that Fallenwood 2 is being sent to editing by Melange Books.
Look at the beautiful cover they designed for me – Stephanie Bibb in particular designed it!!!! It makes me so happy to be a writer when I see covers like this!
