After years of work, rejection, revision, rejection, revision, rejection, ad nauseum, I finally decided to just self-publish The Cooper's Son on Amazon. Sure, right now it's only available for Kindle, but if there's any kind of reaction, I will try to get some art and release a physical version. But the biggest thing is that … Continue reading I finally did it.
Everything was different now. "After," in the days and weeks following "the event," everything changed. People who had believed in one thing suddenly found themselves supporting another. "Speech" became "violence;" not literally, but in common understanding, and "violence" was not to be tolerated... in any way, shape or form. Even if that meant meeting it … Continue reading The Grey
2020, I mean. What? It is? Dammit. It sure doesn't feel that way. I guess I'll have to brighten up my own 2021, since it's already shaping up to be another banner year in the annals (anal?) of history. But we're all in this sticky situation together. Hang strong, people. The Shadow is back, and … Continue reading Ugh… is it over yet?
I am currently roughing in some expanded/new scenes to close some minor plot and story gaps in The Cooper's Son. Here's the first draft of a fairly pivotal moment I just added this evening: It was early April when Rebekka brought their son into the world, as the snows fought to keep the last few … Continue reading The Cooper’s Son update, 17 Aug 2019
Sorry it's been so long. I feel bad I haven't written in anger for quite some time.

They may or may … Continue reading Random Marvel Thoughts
The Video speaks for itself. I'd tell you to enjoy it, but I didn't really enjoy making it, so.... https://youtu.be/tbmkBt4y1ak
Just a quick taste of some of the additional material I'm adding to one of the projects I started here in the Shadow (since removed). “Phillip, consider this, then: if there exists or existed some primal place from which all of these legends sprang in the distant pass, has it not occurred to you that … Continue reading Update, 24 Feb 2019
The problem, I think, is that the Sith now openly control the government. They deal only in absolutes. Nothing the "other" side says or does could possibly be acknowledged to be right or true, nor can anything "their" side does/says possibly be admitted to be wrong or a lie. The real world, the world in … Continue reading Monday Morning Musing
I've pulled down (made PRIVATE, actually) a few of the ongoing writing exercises I've put up here because I think they have the potential to become quality short/not-so-short pieces for an anthology. Stay tuned for updates! Feels good... it really does.
*Don't ask.* This is apparently, a part of President Trump's State of the Union speech, to be given tonight in theHouse Chamber onn Capital Hill in Washington, D.C. Clearly, this is only the closing, but WOW. Obviously, this is subject to further modification/addition/deletion, but what a great tone. Have a read and decide for yourself. … Continue reading **LEAKED** Partial Draft of 2019 State of the Union speech
