• A Friday Riley snippet

    Because it’s Friday and because I can! From book 4 of DCM (which is yet title-less) I pulled back my wandering mind to focus on the task at hand. The difficulty in this situation was me. Null magic in particular.…

  • The Ideas that Rise and a snippet

    I had this image pop into my head: A glass army. I thought about the fact that though the blood would run off them, it would still cling and dry and then I wondered how impervious they would be, if…

  • Whirlwind already

    The past couple weeks have proven to be a whirlwind. Already.  I’m almost done writing two different books. I plan to be done by the end of January. One is DCM 4, the other is this book that came out…

  • Snippet

    A taste of my sneak project: (no context for you!) “Are you saying Damon doesn’t get you hot and bothered?” I flushed. “Unfortunately, no. He does. And now that I have a little better idea what’s going on, I have…

  • The Cutting Room Floor

    I’m working on a Horngate story for an anthology. It is a Giselle/Shoftiel story–no Max. I cut this today and figured you might like to see it: Salt Lake City still looked like itself, though now the sulfurous stench of…

  • Throws Up Its Leaves

    My Father In Law has been visiting, which makes getting work done a little bit tricky, but I’ve managed some. I’m hopefully all finished with a short story that I owed. I’ve made some progress on DCM4. It’s coming along.…

  • Wind blows, fire burns

    Finished revisions on a short story set in Faith Hunter’s Rogue Mage world. I’m pretty happy with it. At least until I find out if Faith likes it. Been doing more writing on Diamond City Magic 4. You know, it…

  • Doing Stuff

    I like to go to estate sales. They sell all sorts of things that either I want and didn’t know it, wanted and didn’t want to pay full price, or stuff that’s interesting but I don’t want. My favorite thing…
