Well, the world hasn’t ended yet

Nancy-Pelosi

A little housekeeping first. The next two weeks will see me head down in the final edits and prep of Light Magic for its scheduled release date of Feb. 6th. Because of that, I’ll be blogging here but there will be some reposting of past blogs or posting of snippets. Don’t worry, though. If anything breaks in the news about current events or the publishing industry that I feel moved to comment […]

On history, politics and current day

On history, politics and current day

As you know, for the last couple of months, I’ve been doing a series of posts over at According to Hoyt. The first series was a review of Hillary Clinton’s book, What Happened,. Today started a new series based on Vladimir Lenin’s The State and Revolution (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics). Unlike the previous series where I could employ full snark, this series is going to be a bit more serious. The very […]

On taxes and double standards

On taxes and double standards

I hadn’t planned to do a political post this morning. But, dayum, it’s impossible not to when looking at how some folks are losing their heads — still — over Donald Trump sitting in the White House. I blogged  at Victory Girls about some of the ways the President has successfully become the “un-Obama”, undoing a number of the previous Administrations progressive (I’d use a different word)policies that had negative impact on our […]

Announcement: Publication Dates

Announcement: Publication Dates

This morning’s blog is a bit of housekeeping. I have one set publication date to announce and a couple of tentative dates. Between them will be other projects going on. I simply haven’t figured out where they will fall in this year’s release schedule yet. The one set date is Feb. 6th. That is when Light Magic will go live. I’m very excited for this release. The book has been a great […]

Inspiration struck and life sucked

Inspiration struck and life sucked

As I sit here, sipping my second mug of Death Wish and wishing it would kick in, I find myself shaking my head. The liberals are still losing their shit over something the President may or may not have said. The MSM is treating it as a done deal, many calling Donald Trump the most racist president we’ve ever had. All the while, they ignore Dick Durbin’s rather dubious track record for […]

Is it safe to come from under the bed?

hiding

The last few days have been interesting in the proverbial sense of the word. The president is once again being labelled as racist for something he may — or may not — have said in a private meeting. A traitor to our country, one who has even less understanding of OpSec than HRC has filed papers to run for the US Senate. If that’s not enough to make you want to hide […]

TGIF

light-magic-cove

This week has been beyond busy. But I’ve gotten a great deal done. I started a new series of posts over at According to Hoyt. I’ve had a couple of posts published over at Victory Girls – and there will be another one later today or tomorrow. then there were my two posts at Mad Genius Club. I’ve managed to check formatting and get updates prepared for about half my books. Those […]

History: Helping Understand Today

History: Helping Understand Today

I have a guest post up at According to Hoyt this today. When I sat down to write it, I did so with one purpose in mind — to explain why I’d chosen State and Revolution by Vladimir Lenin as the next book to review for the blog. I’ll admit, part of it was because I couldn’t take starting another long book review on yet another book about the 2016 presidential election. […]

Light Magic – Snippet 3

(This is from the rough draft of Light Magic. There may be — and probably are — misspellings, grammar issues and more that will be corrected in the editing phase. You can find Snippet 1 here and Snippet 2 here. Of course, the usual disclaimers apply.) Welcome home? What the hell was she talking about? “Someone had better start explaining or I’m out of here.” To put action to words, I dug […]
