Beta readers or don’t be a stupid pirate

pepper being blasted by water

I usually don't blink about pirates.  One did indeed make me blink.  The nitwit claimed I sent them an ARC.  There are major problems with that.  I don't send out ARCs.  My beta's use and read a NOT downloadable copy of the book.  They reply in real-time under the chapter in the comment section.  If … Continue reading Beta readers or don’t be a stupid pirate

Moving to website

traffic jam

I'm in the process of moving this to my website.  The transfer of the posts went well... sort of... we won't go into that.  [I refuse to pay WP to move them for me.  Jerks] The hold up is the pictures didn't transfer.  Oh joy.  So I have to go in by hand and add … Continue reading Moving to website

Present Uncertain Excerpt: Frosty

Marines running through snow

When the bells chimed for reveille, Callon had just sealed the envelopes. Bells. He missed the trumpet and the yelling. Tucking the envelopes in the drawer, he grabbed a quick shower and put on his uniform before heading for coffee. Oh, Gods. Frosty and his friends.

Bomb, Elf and a Drunk Marine.

Marines running through snow

One ticking bomb, one Solis Elf and a very drunk young Marine named Kev. Slamming open the door, he saw Kev slumped to the side. “Marine!” Damn it, he was unconscious. Swearing he was going to make the men do worse than Gunny had made them do for longer, he yanked the kid up on … Continue reading Bomb, Elf and a Drunk Marine.

Yesterday I woke up to a PROVE you are you from Facebook and a blocked account.  I sent in my photo ID.  Unblocked. Everything back to normal.  With … Continue reading New URL for Facebook

Present Uncertain excerpt The Brig

Navy Pier with Sub and boats

“Get up. Your ride’s here.” The Petty Officer hit the bars with his nightstick. The men sprawled on the racks didn’t move. “It’s about time, Sarge.” One swung himself upright and froze. “Gunny. I mean Gunnery Sergeant, I… We…” As the Petty Officer unlocked the door, the others shot to their feet. “Out here now!” … Continue reading Present Uncertain excerpt The Brig

After being on there for 4 years, FB has suddenly decided I'm not a real person and demanded proof that I am.  I had to send them my photo ID.  Bit of luck because when I renew my Brooklyn Public Library membership, I have to send them my ID every time.  So I have one … Continue reading I am missing on FB

Goodreads screwed the pooch again… sigh.

Screw in board

There is nothing more exciting when you haven't finished your first cup of coffee than finding out that Goodreads, AGAIN, stuffed your newest book under someone else's profile. It's starting to look like every damn time I publish a book, they are going to stuff me under some other poor bloke who would NEVER think … Continue reading Goodreads screwed the pooch again… sigh.
