I'd like to animate my Bestial Cult of Hathor. It's a short horror story in which Terry Bringer returns to Wister Town to fulfill a vow; to spit on the graves of the committee members of the restaurant whom fired him. I'm not a professional (in anything), so I've submitted my plea for funds to…Continue
Tarl "Voice" Hoch from Goodreads reminded me The Bestial Cult of Hathor is not one of my better stories. He did me a favor, although I don't anticipate coming back to the tale. It's rough, probably worst than Truthful Consequences.…Continue
...well, not any more than he hates the rest of you.
Although, I admit I've been rude in making my introduction. I'd love to meet Lovecraft fans. I'd even love more if they'd recognize my literary contributions. Not to the Cthulhu mythos, but rather my parallel world inspired by HP Lovecraft and the categorization of his mythos driven by August Derlerth. I say that and I know I raise hackles – but…Continue

Once she started making $90,000, my ex-fiancee got the idea she was too good for me. That was a strain on our relationship. She said she didn't want to be with a man who made less money than her. Then she met a millionaire. I gave up. The woman became a whore, and a wretched one. Have you seen her? I put my dick into that so I wouldn't go to Dante's second plane of Hell for masturbation. Yeah, my definition of self-pleasure is merely technical but that is how Christians…Continue

I am a fool who bleats as much as every other sheep. Useless, I cry and howl. And because it's such a divisive election year - or more so these past four years - I practically squeal. I am afraid and have never trusted shepherds. If wolves are truly stalking us American citizens, I'd rather watch my own wool. Now, I'm sure he's not a pedophile with a penchant for bestiality, yet I'm scared when any such supreme authority figure tours about. But we know, no one can…Continue

I was just notified that my Frugal Book Promoter--Second Edition--(http://budurl.com/FrugalBkPromo) was given a Global E-Book Award nod with an honorable mention. Many of you know I don't promote my e-books as avidly as paperback. It's not because I don't appreciate them or my e-book readers. It's really a matter of time. If you've read The Frugal Book Promoter, you also know that I advise authors to…Continue

Aren’t you so EXCITED?! Of course you are! At least it certainly seems you ought to be, considering that when you skim the news feed on FB, stop by to read a blog post here and there as you cruise through cyberspace, noiselessly tip-toe through twitter, it’s pretty much everywhere. Excitement, and lots of it. Can we really be this Excited so much of…Continue

Guns don't kill people. Of course not. Neither do bombs, knives, baseball bats or poison. It's people who kill people. Who can argue with that?
Well, let me try a bit.
While it is true that inanimate objects by themselves are not likely to become animate and go around killing people all by themselves, it should be obvious that if they didn't exist, it would be a lot more difficult for people to kill people. Gosh, if these inanimate objects didn't exist, someone who wanted to…Continue
