I’m reading a Kindle book about writing page-turner/suspense tales at the moment (I’m not reading about genres at random… there’s a reason for it All will be explained soon, and it’ll make sense). I’ll definitely use what I’m learning! Suspense can be in the mystery genre, though there are differences. This book describes those […]

Link for my Latest Project
I have 3 other versions of the book to complete now for 3 other rule systems.
Better Novel Outliner?
Note that I’m not trying to start a war of words, just asking for opinions: 3 years ago I bought Liquid Story Binder. In October, I plan to get Scrivener for Windows. Both of them enable you to gather together all your character sketches, research and outline for a story in one place. Both offer […]
A Super(s) Possibility
I have been reading comicbooks for most of my life (over 30 years; I’m 45 now). Most of them have been — and still are — superhero books. I’ve been playing role-playing games for just as long; it’s no surprise then that I write for superhero games. Now comes this news: Zenith Comics Acquires SUPERS! Story […]
This is a difficult choice:
http://ricktheraven.wordpress.com/category/white-zombie/ This anthology is looking for more stories (and the blog uses a similar theme too). I’d try my luck with it, because the only way to improve your writing voice is to use it. The problem: I don’t write horror at all, including zombie fiction. I don’t have the stomach for it. This isn’t […]
A Surplus of Possibilities
I’m not as prolific on output as I used to be, but I am in terms of what I can work on right now. First comes my contract work, then the next issue of my fanzine (I want to get it done before my next convention. After that I have several things to choose from: […]
Fiction or Non?
Publishing on Kindle non-fiction is the better seller. People want their problems answered. The difficulty for me is that I’m a fiction author. Fiction also sells, but not as much. I’ll strive for a happy medium: I’ll publish many non-fiction books in order to make more money… however I’ll still write and publish fiction to […]
Getting my Work in Order
I have written roleplaying products and had them published since 1994. I’m currently working on the second edition of one I had published in 2007. I’m now writing it for 4 systems. The funny thing is that the original game is now on its third edition. While getting my writing begun I had trouble finding […]
Wrote, Acted In and Shot
In 1990 I graduated from University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BfA) in Cinema. My strength was in scriptwriting. At work recently we did a film. I wrote a sketch for it called Dates Can be Blind. It’s 4 1/2 pages, so less than 5 minutes. 1 page of script is roughly 1 minute. […]
A Blast From my Fiction Past
I’m intending to publish fiction under the Kindle Singles program. It’s ideal for projects smaller than a full book. My first one will be a novella that I began in 1999. Between my distaste at writing racist dialogue for a villain (he’s a Southerner during the Civil War) and equal distaste about the 2000 US […]
