Ground Effect (Kabrakan/Antithesis Day 745)

Spring is here! Spring is here! Tom Lehrer’s singing of skittles and beer! Okay, so it’s not springtime yet, but the last few days have seen some remarkably spring-y weather, which is a fantastic mood-lifter here in the Pacific Northwest. I’m now deep into recording the audiobook for the soon-to-be-released… Continue reading

Solid Ground (Kabrakan/Antithesis Day 739)

Today marked one of the great transitions. I closed out the last of the big client contracts that I’m performing audiobooks for, which means that I can get back to work on reading my own books and–more importantly–writing my own books. I’ve discovered that living in other people’s books as… Continue reading

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

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 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

Uber-projects update

So, the last month have brought a lot of new projects, as well as desperate scramblings to keep up with existing ones. Here’s the rundown: Down From Ten This is a mystery/suspense/science fiction/comedy/drama film I’m writing for production, hopefully later this year if the financing comes through. More news on… Continue reading

But Can He Do It?

The trouble with being an aspiring master of the universe – and with being perverse enough to create one’s own universe in which to vent one’s petty dictatorships – is that running a universe is always a bigger job than it looks like at first. Predestination is rolling along well,… Continue reading
