Big Antithesis News

Among the many things going on behind the scenes at AWP as I struggle valiantly to finish Antithesis 3 by the deadline, it has been decided (by those who know better than my inner philosophy geek) that The Antithesis Progression is a series that suffers from title sabotage. Sure, they… Continue reading

Dogonomics

As will surprise nobody who read either He Ain’t Heavy (the most recent Lantham mystery) or Free Will (soon to be retitled: The Vindicators–see tomorrow’s blog post for details), I’m kind of a dog person. And, for the last several weeks, with all the weird shit going on in my… Continue reading

On Facing West

I am finishing up The Auto Motive tonight and tomorrow, and as I write, I face west. Whenever possible, I always write facing West. Facing the sunset.

2015, And Worlds Now Gone

Holidays, Updates, Hints, and Treats

Hello, everyone! A quick update to let you all know that I’m alive and (finally) well. A nasty cold took me out of commission for a week, which meant that it took another week and a half to catch up on all the stuff I fell behind on during the… Continue reading

What A Week!

So, a little while ago I said that Free Will was on production hiatus while I resolved some personal emergencies. Those emergencies related to a sudden lack-of-house situation I found myself in. Well, just as there was suddenly no house, there is now once again suddenly a house. This means… Continue reading

Not Back In The Studio

Those of you following the Free Will Studio Diaries a couple weeks back will have noticed the sudden halt in what was supposed to be a seven part series. Doubtless you’ll have noticed that there aren’t any posts of week two in the studio as well. This is because, due… Continue reading

New Year, New Productions

There will be a new newsletter out shortly after the new year, but as we’re winding down this year I wanted to take a moment out and give you all a wave and huge thanks. 2011 has been a remarkably productive year, and the last four days are going to… Continue reading
