Greetings, Bearers!

It is my pleasure to introduce to you one of my new short stories, entitled “Cat, Burglar.” Check it out on smashwords and let me know what you think!

So enjoy my latest release while I dive back down and do more writing!

See you in the Vein!

Greetings, Bearers!

In between my other projects, I found time to write a quick little story that I hope you enjoy:  “Thread. Bare.”

I won’t give much about the story away, except that it was inspired by something Stephen King said during an interview (Here’s the interview, if you’d like to try to figure out where the idea came from before reading the story).

The story is free at Smashwords for a limited time.  If you like it, let me know and tell somebody else about it! 😀  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Okay, back to work for me.

See you in the Vein (and anywhere else I might pop up!)

Greetings, Bearers!

Hard at work once again, but taking the time out to give everybody and update.  I’ve almost finished another short story entitled (so far) “Due”, which should be coming out in the next month or so on Smashwords.  Not quite sure whether or not I like the title, though.  I’m funny about titles; they don’t come to me as easily as stories, believe it or not.  I’ve half considered sending the story to people and asking them for a title on the piece.  A lot of it comes from everything sounding hokey or cliched when I say it, and I don’t like that.  I like things that are fresh and original, yet at the same time can be readily taken by the reader, and that’s not always an easy thing to do.

Speaking of “Hokey”-we now have Brady Hoke, former coach of San Diego State University, as our football coach at Michigan.  Count me excited, because Hoke is at LEAST a stepping stone in the right direction (If you don’t believe me, look up Michigan’s defense for the past three years… 😦  ).  It’ll be good to have a tough team once more.

Well, don’t have much time to talk today.  I’m trying to get myself back on a writing roll, which hasn’t come along as good as I’ve hoped ever since Christmas and New Year’s.  God willing, I’ll be back to the regular output of writing in another day or two.  Until then, keep reading, keep enjoying, and keep spreading the word!

See you in the Vein!
