Fun With Scammers

Mashable has a hilarious exchange between a scammer and an Englishman called James Veitch. Seems James has been spending two years replying to all those spam emails that come to your inbox asking you to hide the wealth of a Nigerian prince, or purchase their cheap Viagra. I used to have a boss who liked … Continue reading Fun With Scammers

Stephen King On Stephen King

Sorry I was off for a while. Wasn't feeling too well. Better now and hoping to get back on schedule with everything. The New York Times ran a great piece by Stephen King on prolific writers, which you might have already read. Like him, I think every writer has their own process and their own … Continue reading Stephen King On Stephen King

14 Writers Who Rock

And who happen to be women. Huffington Post has an article about women who write scifi and fantasy and stand head and shoulders above all others. It's not an exhaustive list, by any means, but it is a good place to start if you want to add to your list of great women writers. I'm extremely … Continue reading 14 Writers Who Rock

Excerpt: IACTA ALEA EST – Mr. Gae Is Expecting You

A little bit of Shalon from the sequel to LEX TALIONIS, to keep you company as you go into the weekend. Framed in that archway, directly across from the lift, stood a hovercar, its dark blue curves iridescent as a beetle's wing.  Shalon strolled over to it, careful to keep her body as relaxed as possible.  … Continue reading Excerpt: IACTA ALEA EST – Mr. Gae Is Expecting You

Another snippet from Viyella's story. In truth, I'm well past these bits, but I don't let myself post unless I've done lots of fresh work. Just keeping myself honest 😉 Hope you like it! He stood and sent out one more thought.  Yowls filled the courtyard, punctuated by screams.  Seconds later, his cat Farain rounded … Continue reading Excerpt: The Nightward – Farain the Cat

Excerpt: The Nightward – A Boy Dances

It's been a while since I proved I was working. So here is a little bit of my current Work In Progress to keep you warm for the weekend!

Meme Explosion: The Written Word

Last week was for the TV shows. This week, we will have fun with books, reading and writing. So without further ado, some of my favourite memes from my Pinterest site that have to do with the written word! Stay thirsty, my friends!

Writers Write Different

A while back, there was a conversation on one of my email lists about an award-winning author who had announced her intention to quite the publishing game. I can't remember her name (it was QUITE a while ago) but I remember she was a British literary writer who had won awards. Her problem, as far … Continue reading Writers Write Different

Meme Explosion: Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead

I'm a huge fan of both GOT and TWD. And yes, I'm still a fan of Game of Thrones and waiting anxiously for next April, despite all the complaining about this season. However, I can understand why some people are up in arms, so instead of getting into all the ways season 5 made you … Continue reading Meme Explosion: Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead

An Awesome Story I Just Had To Share

So Myke Cole posted this. And it was so unusual to see a writer of that caliber make a plea like that, I had to go read the story immediately. Took me half a day, going in and out of tasks, and I'm so glad I did. It's amazing. Really, really good. I have to … Continue reading An Awesome Story I Just Had To Share
