I just wanted to give everyone a quick update on where I'm at with my upcoming trip to Houston, Texas, for the inaugural FANDEMIC TOUR Comic Con event. I am currently waiting for responses to my initial round of questions for organizer John Macaluso, but with an event as big as this one seems, I … Continue reading Update on my Fandemic Tour Coverage
As many of you know, I love comic cons. I love the atmosphere, I love seeing celebrities whose work I enjoy, I like cruising artists’ alley, looking for some new take on an old favorite. I even love watching people flip about guests and cosplayers that I wouldn’t necessarily give a second glance to, because … Continue reading Politics and Comic-Cons: Why are we talking about this?

Here we go. Part 2 of the newest writing exercise. As always, there is minimal editing or plotting-ahead, but I kind of like the vibe of this one. Let me know what you think. You can read part 1 HERE if you like this. I felt a hand fall lightly on my left shoulder, then … Continue reading Writing Exercise pt 2

Just a few random bits of argle-bargle that ran through my brain this morning 1) Charlize Theron is not the next James Bond. Did you even SEE Atomic Blonde? 2) Game of Thrones continues to show why people either love it or hate it...often in the same 30 second span. 3) RE: Donald Trump's tweet … Continue reading Random thoughts of the day…
The moon shone through the leafless branches of the trees lining the path through the park. The layer of decaying leaves muffled his footsteps as he strode slowly up the gentle incline, sweeping round the edge of the park. It was early, barely five, and the city streets had not yet begun to sing their … Continue reading Short Fiction – “A Man Alone”
Okay, so here's part 10 of the "New Bits" exercise. I probably won't post any more of this one, as it may turn into an actual project, but we'll see.
