Stuck in the Mud (Kabrakan/Antithesis Day 606)

The Orinthal Deception cover

During this year’s sputtering and hectic and terrifyingly heat-soaked summer (which, thankfully, was relatively devoid of hurricanes), I managed to do some work, in fits and starts, on what is now Book 2 of The Big Series. The Orinthal Deception has full possession of my brain now (at least when… Continue reading

Briggs Defection Cover Reveal! (Kabrakan/Antithesis Day 476)

In today’s edition of Dan’s Nutty Life Story, we bring you an educational resource, a book review, a cute puppy picture, and a cover reveal (not necessarily in that order). Oh boy oh boy oh boy, it was a hot one today. Third day in a row when it was… Continue reading

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

Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 293

The long silence is long–and over! My last week, alas, got largely eaten up by the election. I have a bad habit of LOVING watching political turmoil unfold–as a student of history, geopolitics, and the philosophies of governance, the end of the election season basically tripped me for five days.… Continue reading

Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 278

Quick update today, as it’s late and I’m utterly knackered. I recovered (finally!) from the Illness of Doom this afternoon and got myself unleashed on the podosphere again (got a whole new set of Every Day Novelist episodes up). Got this month’s Free Fiction up–please do go enjoy, it’s one… Continue reading
