The rest of the country may not know what it is but here in Massachusetts Patriots day is a thing.It commemorates the day that the British regulars marched to Lexington and Concord looking for arms and ammunition being stored by the locals. This led to the Battle of Lexington green, The battle at the Old North Bridge and the shot heard round the world. Read the rest of this entry
Arisia, for those of you who may not know, is a sci-fi convention held annually in Boston. Why they decide to hold it in January is beyond me but that’s what they do. I have been attending this convention Read the rest of this entry
I’m not one for making resolutions when the new year rolls around. I do feel that it’s a good time to start working on things because the holidays are over so you’re not stuffing your face with food or dealing with insanity, and you have almost 11 whole months to work on shit before it all comes around again. My goal every year since I started writing was to get two books out a year Read the rest of this entry
Although not as productive as I would have liked to been 2014 was a pretty ok year compared to some other’s I’ve been through. I got to visit a new country and go on my second cruise. I got a new office that I love dearly. I reconnected Read the rest of this entry
Made it through Christmas pretty much unscathed thankfully. It was nice actually. I thought there was going to be no Christmas spirit at all and then found a bit a day or two before Christmas itself. Had a nice mas eve dinner at a great restaurant in Concord and then cooked an overabundance of holiday goodies on Christmas itself. It was quiet and relaxing, just the way I like my holidays to be.
Next up is New Years Eve which I’m betting will be quiet as well. Long gone are the days of looking for a party or some place fun to go. I’ve never been a fan of large groups of drunken people anyway, mainly because I know how much of an ass I an be when I’m drunk and around people. It’s much safer for all involved if I drink in a small group or alone.
After that it’s time to get nervous about my first ever panel appearance at Arisia on Jan 18th. I’m already kind of antsy about it so I’m sure I’ll be a wreck by the end of the first week of January, but it’ll be a blast I’m sure!
Editing is coming along on After the Storm, Ghosts and the cover is already done for that and the upcoming omnibus that will put the first three books together in one collected edition. Both should be out right after the new year I’m hoping.
Back to work with me, enjoy the rest of the holiday season!
While I was laying here trying to sleep, which failed miserably, something kept running through my head, actually a lot of things ran through my head but those may be subjects for another day. Right now I wanted to talk about this particular subject, dog ownership.
Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of things in social media about people treating their dogs like kids Read the rest of this entry
It seems the unofficial end of summer is here again. As usual I will be at the same place I always am on these major vacation holidays… at home. I hate being lumped in with all the other folks that decide to travel and go away on weekends like this or Memorial day. It’s just not my thing, Read the rest of this entry
Kevin Smith’s new movie Tusk that is coming out sounds… interesting. What caught my attention was something much more simple though. I saw it and instantly was reminded of something else. Read the rest of this entry
My dad was not a big disciplinarian, nor was he all that intimidating. My dad was a musician, a chef and an all around good man who tried his best to take care of his family while battling some inner demons. All in all, he did a pretty good job and I miss him every day, but this story isn’t about him Read the rest of this entry
It’s Christmas time again and that means winter and that means snow, well at least here in New England it does. To all of you that may be reading this from warmer climes… screw you Read the rest of this entry
