What's Going On?

And I scream at the top of my lungs, "What's going on?!"

If you frequent my writing space, as in this website, you may be wondering what is going on?  I haven't posted an original story of my own in a while, and the last post I did was in September and was a guest post (Jennifer Word, in fact, and it is a good read so check it out).

Well, I haven't given up writing, so quit counting your chickens before they hatch, Sally Pinkerton.  No, I've just been working 'offline' or 'behind-the-scenes' more than I have on posting.  Which is shameful, and I promise I'll be posting something fresh soon.

What have I been doing, you ask?
  • Building 'spaces' for my online novellas.  I've started to build 'subsites' within my TFB domain.  I am currently working on subsites for 'The Agency' (which I plan to rewrite what is currently written), 'The Rolling Stone' and others.
  • Building a subsite for 'Hardboil High'.  I'm also building a subsite for 'Hardboil High'.  This subsite will over time become more and more expansive, when you consider the book series is 7 books long.  It includes excerpts, news, downloads and so on.
  • Working on a collaborative short novel.  Alongside 4 other authors, I co-wrote a String-Along story (that's what I like to call it).  We worked in a rotation, with an writing 1 chapter per rotation.  It was a great project, and the end result was a pretty solid crime novel titled 'Fatal Flaws'.  We've made it passed the editing stages, first formatting draft, and it is on me to design the book cover soon, and provide a final formatted manuscript.  We plan to have it available for purchase online in both paperback and digital download on January 1, 2012.  I will release more details on that as we near the publish date.

So, as you can see, I have been busy in the writing game, just not writing and posting much.  Lame, I know.  And then, to top it all off, I woke up this morning with the itch to take everything I have on the site, edit, format, and publish it all as one, massive anthology.  My mind is always at work, even if my fingers aren't.

I'm also now on Google+ with my Google Apps account, which makes me happy.  I've been wanting this for some time now, but they only recently allowed Google Apps' accounts on.  Circle me here.

Merlin & Hagar : A Gnome Photo Series

I decided, on a whim yesterday, to make a photo series based off my wife's gnome collection. It was a collection she curated over her childhood, buying them all from the same place in Derby, Kansas, where her grandparents lived.

The series stars two gnomes, Merlin and Hagar. One is jolly, and the other grumpy. Enjoy.

I have the first two posted, and will embed below.



New website look and stuff coming soon

I've been meaning to give my site an extreme makeover and be better about writing posts, and sharing stories. Well, it's coming....I'm currently testing with my new theme/layout, and it is gonna be cool...let me tell ya. And as far as more content, I will be writing more and writing more blog posts as well. This is more of a challenge to myself to stay on top of things, and less of an actual promise. Yikes!Any rate, stay tuned.

A little on Audrey Hepburn, my favorite actor

It takes a lot for me to say something is 'my favorite'. For example, when it comes to movies, I have a laundry list, and the one at the top is really only there because I just can't bring myself to take it down for something else.

Some people claim actors as favorites for silly reasons. Yes, I said silly. While Audrey may not make the list for favorite actor for a lot of folks, though maybe for 'best style' or some other nonsense. For me, she makes the top for acting. And here's why...

In her career, and life, she was constantly met with challenges and always overcame them. An actor who takes on challenges and bests them, those are the truly talented actors. From her humble beginnings in life, taking part in the underground resistance during WW2, to stardom, she saw a lot of challenges along the way. Like, how do I save these Jews from the Nazi soldiers coming this way? Oh, let me walk over and pick a flower for the Nazi, giving the Jews time to get…
