I am honored.

As an author, you get important opportunities on occasion. A few months ago, I got one. Shana Festa of BookieMonster, and Devan Sagliani, asked me to help edit an anthology, and I accepted. What I didn’t know at the time is that the proceeds were going to be donated to The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. I couldn’t have been more honored to have been asked to participate in this.

The anthology is comprised of stories from authors, set in the “universe” of their favorite work. You’ll notice that I submitted a short prequel for Blood Soaked and Contagious, called “Home Defense.” If you’re one of my fans, you’ll enjoy this…Hell, you’ll enjoy the whole book. As one of the editors, I can guarantee it.

Please check it out on Amazon, buy it, and know that your $2.99 is going to a good cause. Thank you for your support.



That’s the sound of an author in “Writer’s Slump”. Here, I made you a picture.

Writer's Slump

I am trying to work on “Blood Soaked and Gone”, but it is slow going. The first 80k pages are pretty good, but I hit a slump and started writing the climax. There are about 5k words there, maybe more. It is taking that 80 to the point where it can logically meet that 5… OUAAARGH!

Second cup of coffee.

Did you know that I cook, too?

Never again will I fry polenta.

I’ll bake it. I’ll broil it in broth.
Maybe I’ll mash it up with cream.

I’ll Posh Nosh it thoroughly.

Never again will I fry polenta.
There are tiny burns on my arms.

I slid around the floor, lubed up,

As our smoke alarm went insane.

Never again will I fry polenta.
It inspires the strangest things,
Like a post-repast tilt at poetry.
Mostly, though, I feel real greasy.
