Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 274

Back when I was writing Silent Victor, book 4 in my Clarke Lantham Mystery series (the stories all stand alone–feel free to pick up any one that looks interesting in order to sample them!) I discovered, in the middle of the novel, that there was a book missing in the… Continue reading

Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 272

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

Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 245

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

Podcasts, Blogs, and Books: Updates

For those of you following the Nanocast, the Blogging Antithesis Series, and who have been suffering long for the want of the Free Will podcast, a quick update: I had an opportunity to do a YA adventure novel for a big event coming up, but I had a very thin… Continue reading

Blogging Antithesis: Day 65-68

Oh, man, what a difference a few days can make! Shortly after my most recent post, I went into a bit of a tail spin over one of the issues that has tripped me up time and again with this book, and this series. By way of background: I initially… Continue reading
