We did it!!  Well, to be fair, YOU did it.  Pale Winter Sun needed a tune up and the Gofundme I set up to pay for a 2nd edition met it’s goal.  This book means a lot to me, and even in it’s busted-ass edition, it is still touching people.  I’ve already sent it to an amazing editor who I know will get it right. A shiny new edition will be available soon, most likely in February or March.

That being said, expect another flurry of pandering and begging of people to buy books.  This time I’m doing it right.  I want to thank everybody who not only donated to the cause, but those who also shared my posts and kept the conversation going about it.  Maybe those shares didn’t equal into dollars every time, but it still means a lot to me.

Thank you again, and expect a new and improved PWS soon!

Remember kids: stay in school, don’t drink and drive, and it’s never too late to start all over again.



Another year to try and get it right.

Well, we made it. Another trip around the sun and we are still here. Go us! We tentatively step into 2017, cautious in our expectations. And why shouldn’t we be; 2016 was a sphincter of a year. Yes, we lost a lot of our heroes, but we also saw a huge rise in racism, violence, LGBT+phobia, and a sham of an election. Every year has as much potential to be great as it does to suck, but so far the deck seems stacked against us. All I can say about it is that we need to take action where action needs taken and we need to watch out for each other. All of us. Even the assholes.

I don’t do resolutions, but I don’t go into anything without some sort of game plan. 2017 will be a year of changes and I am ready to embrace whatever changes come my way.

I am ready to write more.
I am ready to market more.
I am ready to play more music.
I am ready to explore new locales (both external and internal)
I am ready to take better care of myself.
I am ready to do more to make the world a better place.

I learned a lot during the last year. Not only about the world, but myself and my craft. I am seeing more of what I need to concentrate on, especially on the post production part. I need to work on my prose, round out my characters, etc etc. I also need to play waaay more bass than I have been. Maybe make some new music while I’m at it.

For the upcoming year, I can only wish for the best, prepare for the worst, and hope that we all get through it okay.

Happy New Year.

Remember kids: stay in school, don’t drink and drive, and Auld Lang Syne.
