Authors, Entrepreneurs, and other Creative Individuals Pursuing Their Dreams
Lovecraft fans hate me. I don't why. Maybe it's what I say... but we shouldn't be haters. We're brothers, man. We were both weaned on eldritch witchery and periodically return to the font of the unbaptized. For those who know, like Richard Upton Pickman, I pull monsters from my sketchbooks. My whole purpose for writing is to make my chimera live.…Continue

Why should you read my story? I say it's a fantasy-horror story and the reaction is immediately lukewarm. I've said it's fiction about the 99% and the 1% - it's about terrorists, the messiah and Armageddon and no one cares. I've even stated I'm renewing Dante's Underworld tours and taking readers straight through the Hellmouth at Saint Erasmus and the reaction…Continue

Feeling full-spirited toward an immersive environment, I've created atmospheric music to accompany each of the books in my Pazuzu Trilogy. They're background noise - if you want something professional, well then pay somebody something. Buying my books would be a move in the right direction. I have no music training whatsoever - that music appreciation elective course I took in…Continue
I’m always looking for ways to improve my writing. I try to write every day; I keep a journal. Whenever I read a particularly good book, I write a review for myself. Sometimes I’m so impressed with the author’s writing style, the seamless way in which a story is told combining all the right elements, in the right proportion, I study the author’s technique; not for the purpose of imitating his/or her style, but to understand what makes one author’s writing stand out from…Continue

As You May Recall,
I have something of a fascination with Idioms. You know, those expressions that are near ancient in origin, which we toss out often enough to assure their permanence in the rhelms of common language. And yet, when we take a moment to think about what it is we’re actually saying, uh well, What actually are we…Continue

It goes something like this ...
When it comes to the nuts and bolts of real life, I can't help but believe that the medicine goes down better when accompanied by a well laid plan
spoonful of sugar. Whether it be a mental list (Bahahahaha, yeah right! What kind've bone-head boob would rely on such foolish tactics!) or a tidy inventory laid out on paper-- complete…
The internet is teeming with people trying to sell their products or services. And, most marketers spend a lot of time creating and building their email subscription lists. As we know, marketing is all about the golden list and traffic, traffic, traffic.
The primary method of getting traffic to your site is through information . . . creating content. You need to create quality content and provide it on a regular basis. Generating ongoing content and promoting it to the…Continue

Yeah, I get it. There are valid arguments on both sides.
1 … “We’ve gotta have unions or they’ll run us over!”
2 … “Not in my business! I’ll lock the damned doors first!”
This post has been nagging at me to be written for over a week. I’ve kept two small…Continue
That’s not a very long time. The average white male in the United States lives 75.6 years, 5.2 years less than the average white woman. It’s the reason we have so many of those nasty cats. Her man dies first, so the woman needs someone to bitch and carp at the rest of the trip. Dogs won’t put up with it.
Still, there are 288 segments five…Continue

It’s actually kind of nice to hear it said that way. For so many years I’ve heard it said with “you” in place of the “I” and it sounds different enough like this to make it better, somehow.
Still, I’m now noticing some of the things I do and they’re annoying. What’s worse is these are new things, stuff others never got a…Continue
