A Legend Leaves Us…

Today we bid farewell to a man who has touched the lives of many. I usually don’t write posts like this, but as a huge fan of Star Trek and someone who grew up watching Leonard Nimoy… I felt I had to pay my respects… I remember that I was about 4 or 5 the first time that I saw Mr. Nimoy on Star … Read More A Legend Leaves Us…

Author’s Advice Pt. 10

It’s NEVER too late to start over. Are you working on a piece you’ve just lost all love for? Are you writing something that you really didn’t want to write in the first place? Do you really not care whether your newest piece get’s done or not? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, STOP! Close out of what your writing … Read More Author’s Advice Pt. 10

Free Exchange of Ideas…

Can I just ask… what the heck happened? When I first published my work, I got a lot of comments from readers, both positive and negative. Divinity in particular got positive and negative comments from die-hard Christians and atheists, and I don’t understand the negativity. I certainly can’t speak for the rest of the world, so if it’s different outside of the U.S. PLEASE … Read More Free Exchange of Ideas…

Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 4

IV   Tom kept himself in seclusion during the next few days. He went to class as much as he needed to in order to get by, but other than that, he barely came out of his room. Both Greggor and Jayme came by to see him often, but he almost never opened the door. He slowly became oblivious to the world around him. … Read More Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 4

Personal bias, dislike, and hatred.

I admittedly was a little hesitant to address this one because of the weight and political biases that go with it. So let me preface by saying that I don’t care who’s a republican or a democrat, man or woman, black, white, asian, etc. If you enjoy reading, you’re all right by me. In Magnifica, Lia’na is often abused for being an elf. Both … Read More Personal bias, dislike, and hatred.

Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt 3

III   Weird things began to happen over the next few weeks. Toby and Lia’na disappeared and Gishan wouldn’t talk about it. He walked around like he was a dead man and barely even talked to anyone. One day at lunch, Tom was sitting with Greggor and Jayme when Gishan came in. Tom was talking to Jayme, “Did you hear about what happened in … Read More Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt 3

Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 2.

(So I’ve decided that this sequel has pretty much lost all steam. I’m going to give my readers what I have… but this is never getting published. I’m instead focusing on Taryn’s story.) II The next day, Tom got up for class, though he wasn’t really up for it. It was late in the afternoon and he had been lazing around most of the … Read More Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 2.

Author’s Advice Pt. 9

Exposition is out of style and no one likes it. This is my personal opinion based on what I’ve seen from my readers, as well as myself. There is no bigger turnoff to reading than seeing a huge, page-long, paragraph describing a person, place, or thing. I understand that sometimes they are needed and you do need to break up dialogue and action scenes, … Read More Author’s Advice Pt. 9

Vampires Suck!?!?

First there was high fantasy… elves, dwarves, orcs, goblins, and the race of man… people saw it and were pleased. (1970s) Then came the aliens craze, starting with horror, and moving into action and urban fantasy. People saw it and were pleased… (Late 70s-1980s) Then came angels. They were sensitive, romantic, and powerful. Drama lovers saw it and were pleased. (1990s) Now… well… So … Read More Vampires Suck!?!?

So on my blog, I’m used to giving advice and offering help, I don’t usually ask for it. Well now I am… I’m looking for a new book to pick up and get into.
