Book 1? Check (Antithesis/Kabrakan Day 475)

One Down. Five to go. And hot damn does it feel good to say that. I must apologize for my delinquency–I utterly failed in my journalistic duty to document the progress of this book over the last month, when I have actually been writing every day. I found myself over-scheduled, … Continue reading

Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 435-438

Hi Everyone! Sorry for my silence the last couple days. I actually have been writing, but I haven’t had time to do blog posts, because I’ve been buried in a rotating gamut of five things: Recording Reading Writing ‘Rithmatic — Well, not arithmetic especially, but compliance. Lots of verifying records … Continue reading

Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 434

Yesterday, I promised you an update on the other book I read cover-to-cover this week. It was one that–like the Iles books I’ve been raving about the last few months–dragged me straight through in one sitting (well, okay, one and a half). This one wasn’t Greg Iles, though, but another … Continue reading

Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 431-433

Hello and greetings and updates from the road! Growing up in the San Francisco area, I learned to hate humidity. Going to the east coast or the south or the midwest meant growing a set of gills. How things change! After two years on the Oregon coast, now that I’m … Continue reading

Blogging Antithesis/Kabrakan, Day 296

More action-packed days here in the back of beyond! The last few days my attention has been divided between finding ways to get enough exercise amid sporadic (but severe) rainstorms and working to get back on track with my writing. And it’s working. I’m up a goodly amount in the … Continue reading

Well, I’ve been off the writing wagon for almost three weeks–the first with a cold that just won’t quit, the second  due to a really bitchin’ conference in between where I spoke on audio production and podcasting, and then a third week where I either relapsed or picked up some … Continue reading

What Is Zoroastrianism?

I’ll be the first to admit that the most far-flung bit of speculation I indulge in in The Kabrakan Ascendency (aka The Antithesis Progression)is the Persian Empire having Zoroastrianism as its state religion, rather than Islam. I had to imagine a pretty convoluted scenario (and a nuclear war) to pull … Continue reading

Some Might Call it Infringement

So. copyright infringement has been a a hot topic over the last year, as numerous high-profile and/or much-blogged about cases have been circulating in the news. Whether it’s Star Trek fan films or shadow hunting urban fantasy heroines, a lot of people are in a hell of a lather about … Continue reading

Blogging Antithesis–Now Blogging Kabrakan!

Since I last updated this series in June, the slings and arrows of outrageous life events knocked me of my writing horse. Well, not entirely off the writing horse. I’ve written two more books in the interim, but neither of them are the Big Book with which we’re now concerned. … Continue reading
