Zen and Inevitable Destiny

Zen and Inevitable Destiny

“It’s all connected, Reese.” If you’re at all familiar with Damian Lewis, you might recognize that quote. If you’re not familiar with either, it comes from a show he had starred in a few years ago, called Life. In it, he played a police officer who turns to Zen after being wrongfully accused for a murder … Continue reading

Deleted Scene #2 – Lost Highway

Deleted Scene #2 – Lost Highway

Here’s the second scene that was taken out of Lost Highway. Another flashback, if you will… this one depicting the reason why Tony’s not all that keen on packs nowadays. This had originally been inserted right before his confrontation with Vincent if you want context. Still haven’t picked up the Nocturnal Embers anthology? Well, what … Continue reading

Deleted Scene from Lost Highway

Deleted Scene from Lost Highway

In case you missed it, our short story anthology, Nocturnal Embers, was released at the beginning of the month and became one of Amazon.com’s hot new Dark Fantasy releases. A huge kudos to the authors who helped make that possible, you guys are super stars and deserve a lot of recognition. My “short” was placed … Continue reading

A Tale of Two Works in Progress

A Tale of Two Works in Progress

Now that NaNoWriMo’s gone and done, I face the decision over what I want to do next. The Unquiet Dead needs a little time to simmer, because I want to go back and edit the first half before beginning work on the second half. Unfortunately, editing requires distance and I have other promises to keep. You … Continue reading

Some Like It Rough – A Story Excerpt

Some Like It Rough – A Story Excerpt

I want it to be known I am posting this primarily for Olga, who informed me that she liked it rough. 😉 I think a comment like that in response to, “Are you sure you want to read more of my work in progress? It’s extremely rough.” Deserves a reward. So, my friend, this is … Continue reading

Show Me Yours…

Show Me Yours…

Greetings, fellow lovers of the written word. While I am a bit behind in NaNoWriMo, I am still relishing the experience and racing with the others toward the finish line. To prove what I’ve been up to, I’m posting a chunk of my work in progress for you to jeer, critique, or offer any opinions. … Continue reading

Orphaned Stories – The Fifth of November

Orphaned Stories – The Fifth of November

A break in the NaNoWriMo revelry for another post in the Orphaned Stories series. In case you missed the first post, the challenge is to share a snippet of story which had been started and not finished, left in the file folder to be completed later, if ever. Considering how often my muse has A.D.D., … Continue reading

Orphaned Stories – A Tale of Two Seers

Orphaned Stories – A Tale of Two Seers

It has happened to the best of us, some of us fifty times over. We start a story with the best of intentions, determined to see it through to completion until something – be it life or another project – derails us. I do not know how many fellow authors have an orphans folder, but … Continue reading

The “Look” Challenge

The “Look” Challenge

Had been looking for an excuse to post a teaser from my current work in progress and Jessica Fortunato has provided one for me. 😉 The only reason it has not been gracing my Works in Progress blog is that I am penning my submission for a short story anthology before resuming work on Thick As Thieves. … Continue reading
