Almost a year???

Yes. It’s been almost a whole year since I posted to the site. My sister was kind enough to point out my deficit in posting efficiency. Thanks, sis. :)

Time sure does fly when you’re …. busy. What’s happened in a year? Wow, where to start?

I started a new day-job, and there are some long days involved. But I really am enjoying it.

I’ve almost finished a huge novel chronicling my take on the origin on the undead — zombies, vampires, mummies and the like. Keep your eyes posted here. I promise it’s coming very, very soon. So excited, but I can’t really say more right now. Let’s just say that if you’re reading this, and want to be a beta reader for this story … go find my Facebook post for Beta readers and reply to it NOW… like… this week!! Seriously.

I’ve been to Haiti, and I’m headed back there again this summer to help down there. That’s a long story in itself. WOW! If you have a giving heart, and you don’t know where to apply your time or talents…. Haiti could use your help. Just sayin’. So much need there, but the people are the most amazing people I’ve ever met.

I’ve written several short stories as they’ve popped into my head, and started a few new novels. It seems that the  more I write, the further behind in my writing “to do” list I get. I keep starting new ideas, but I have to finish the one’s I already have going. My wife is holding my feet to the fire on that front, and is not letting me spin too far out into left field.

So much more, but it’s just been crazy. Keep watching here over the next few days. I plan to upload one of my short stories. It is about 5K words. Just for reference, a full-novel is between 70K and 100K words, so you can see it’s just a very, very long blog post. But I think some people will like it. It’s a bit of fan-fiction, based in the Firefly universe. If you like Firefly, this should be a treat.

So… keep your eyes peeled, and bear with me. I have been busy, but I will be posting here more in the next few weeks. This past year has been crazy, but the year ahead has even more in store. I can’t wait for you all to see it.

Your writer friend…
