Stuff your face this Thanksgiving with… — Unreadable Disk Error

23 11 2017

I don’t know about you, but when I’m sitting around the table at Thanksgiving, looking at my family, I like to wonder what the scenario would be if a chest-burster from Alien were to suddenly appear. Now, though a chest-burster wouldn’t be too much fun at this festive gathering, I think we all can agree […]

The Haunting Hours

16 08 2017

Who Killed Orrin Grey?

Let’s see if we can’t torpedo any remaining credibility I may have as a consumer of horror media, shall we? Recently, I’ve been watching the two seasons of R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour that are on Netflix. Initially, I was doing this because each episode was a standalone story that was only about 20 minutes long, which fit nicely with my “watch something while I eat lunch” approach to consuming media lately. However, once I got started, it didn’t take me long to continue watching because, frankly, The Haunting Hour is actually pretty damn good.

Because I was initially just watching out of convenience, I started picking out episodes with appealing-sounding synopses, not necessarily planning to ever watch the entire thing, so I ended up watching the two seasons completely out of order.

GETTING A FIVE YEAR PLAN TOGETHER

30 06 2017

I was knocked for a loop two weeks ago when my writers group met. They told me my novel still wasn’t working, this after 80k words on an 50k work. 

I’m still processing what I should do next. I had day job related stuff for a week, then I had vacation time to burn off. Here I am.

I had a FIVE year plan back in 2011. Overall, I deserve a B- on my results. I did not plan well enough on self-publishing, but I did get that blurb and good reviews, so I’m fairly content.

Now What?

My next plan will have three series, three books each, with maybe two other pen names. One series will be a Nerd Noir with people I know from life and work getting involved with crime capers.  A second series will be a dump for my AD&D RPG ideas, maybe. The third would be doing the TAB horror stuff. 

Plot and series outlines next.
