Weeelllll, I know there’s a lot of these reflective posts going around, but hey, a lot’s happened this year for some of us…monumental events that we’ll never forget as long as we live (unless we end up suffering from some medical affliction that makes us forget and in that case, better to have written it down somewhere). Besides, I’m a writer. I love to ramble on paper.
But I’ll try to keep this post short and sweet. Read more…
AND THE WINNER IS…

I was going to post this as a Flash Friday, but I’ve got another post scheduled that day…so I’m going to post this now. I absolutely love Florence and the Machine. When I heard this song, a story instantly formed in my head.
It’s been a couple of days now since I released Somnium. Some folks are waiting on copies while others have already received them and begun reading. And here I sit…waiting for the reviews to roll in. I had the pleasure of spending time with family over the weekend at a Christmas party. Many times I was asked, “How does it feel to be published?”
How does it feel? Read more…
I had this crazy notion a few years back: to write a book. I’d written enough of the small stuff (flash, poetry, short stories) for a while. It was time for a REAL commitment. It’s so easy to find resolution by the end of a short story, but attempt that in a novel, and well, that requires a bit more than just a few minutes jotting down a storyline. I’d written chapters, scrapped them, saved some on floppy disks somewhere. Is there a computer in the world that can read a floppy nowadays? This was going to be it for me. My novel. The one I’d publish.
The very awesome Colin F. Barnes, author of The City of Hell Chronicles, interviewed me on his blog and asked some very interesting questions…
Curious to know why I decided to self-publish? What 5 books I’d like to have if stranded on a desert island? Where I plan to be in 5 years?

In this scene, Allie is being chased through an open field by something massive. She doesn’t know what follows her. It catches up. She trips, falls to the ground and lies cloaked in the grass, waiting with her eyes closed.
I can hear it taking in my smell, savoring the scent of its spoils. A whimper escapes me. It’s breath is hot and oddly sweet-smelling, just short of my face. I open my mouth to scream and feel a rigid hand against my lips.
“Shh…” he whispers. “Don’t move.”
