2016 in Review

Instead of my usual Sporadic Saturday Sweetness post, I’m going to follow along with most of the RPG blogosphere and post a “year in review” type post. Honestly, most of my RSS feeds were either very silent (holidays and all that) or filled with year in review type stuff. Not much to grab any goodies ...

Is This Still On?

Hey all, About four months ago, I announced a long hiatus. Yeah. It’s been a while. A little longer than I hoped for, but shorter than I expected. First, some updates: One of my novel publishing contracts fell through in September when the publishing house shut down. This happens with small presses. It’s part of ...

Long Hiatus

Hey all, I’m going to have to put this web site on a long hiatus. It’s for good reasons, and I apologize to the blogs I regularly review and the few readers I have. The good reasons are: At WorldCon this past week, I agreed to sell another novel to a second publisher. This makes ...

The Darkness Has Risen

As my regular readers will have noticed by now, it’s been a while since I’ve done a post. It’s going to be a while longer. I’ve been eyeball deep in my CISSP studies. I’ve been skimming articles and capturing links, but have had zero time (less than zero, if that’s possible) to write up comments ...

We interrupt…

We interrupt...
… your regularly scheduled programming with this breaking news! I’ve already let slip (in subtle ways) here and on social media that I’m now part of the Gnome Stew Crew! John Arcadian generously invited me to join the new team he was forming. After getting over my flabbergastedness, we had a great exchange of emails about ...

Turning The Lights Back On

*flicks lights on* *watches cockroaches scurry for cover* I’m back! Miss me? As of last night, I’ve finally cleared my plate of some projects and handed things off to others for them to run with. Man, it feels good to be free and clear of things. I probably still have too many projects going on ...

Going Dark… For a While

Hey all, I’ve been overwhelmed with too many projects, tasks, ideas, and needs for myself and my family for about a month now. That’s resulted me in going dark in a few different venues. I just hit my RSS reader where I had 100+ RPG-related articles to read. With great sadness, I had to scroll ...

Reset

I always get down this time of year. My seasonal affective disorder is hitting me especially hard and is pushing me toward clinical depression. Don’t worry. I’m aware of what’s going on. So is my health care professional. We’re keeping close tabs on things and adjusting medication as needed. The point of me telling you ...

Backlog and Announcement

First, a note about the link backlog: I’ve been busy prepping for a budget meeting for a non-profit I’m president of. That meeting happened last night. Things went well. We have money. We’re going to spend it on educating people. Life is good. Unfortunately, this meant that for the past 2-3 weeks, I’ve not really ...

New Theme

Because of Google limiting search results on web sites that are not responsive in nature, I had to change my theme. I’ll be customizing it over the next week or so, but this is what the site will look like for a while. If you spot anything broken or just completely out of whack, drop me ...
