With the reemergence of the blog here, I’ve been reinvigorated to write again, slightly anyway. I’ve had some ideas flowing through my head lately, I mean, they’re always there like little voices scratching to get out of my skull, but my will to be lazy and discouraged usually outweighs it, shoving them back into my head where they belong. Anywhoo, I’ve been thinking about a new genre to look at. As much as I love horror, I haven’t been able to break into the market. And so I tried a comedy, it did worse than the horror one. Literally nobody has bought it, which is a shame because I think it’s got a good laugh or two in it. Continue reading “Like riding a bike… Sort of.”
Yes, yet another long hiatus comes to an end. I can’t explain why I stop posting, in fact I check the stats for the blog every single day, yet I never update or post. Perhaps it was after my last major update that I became discouraged again. You may remember, if you were around back then, that I released a new book about a year ago. I was excited, I was pumped, it was meant to be the one that shot me into stardom. I did interviews and guest spots, held a book launch party, sent copies out for review, and even gave away a couple of free ones. Sadly, none of that translated into anything worthwhile.

Writing is a tough gig. Honestly, it’s such an subjective field that even if you’re a best selling author, or screenwriter, or whatever, people are still not going to like you. But, if you’re at that point, you’ve probably got as many, or more people who dig your work, so it’s all gravy. But what about those of us who have been at this writing thing for more than half of their life without any success? Continue reading “The Fear You Will Fall”
Ageless squabbles, two races fighting for survival, and an unlikely alliance? No, this isn’t describing America in the last month, I’m talking about Beyond the Veil by Jessica Majzner, a novel which features all of your favourite night dwellers. Vampires and Werewolves are at it again in this young adult fantasy tale, but it seems to have more flesh on its bones (pardon the pun) than other stories in the same genre with undead werewolves, and the sanctity of worlds hangs in the balance.
Oh, Canada. How the weather you display is so very messed up. For those of you in and around the GTA, you know this fact well, and it was proven yesterday for any doubters. The morning was about 10 degrees, or so it felt, and pouring rain. That lasted until around 1pm, give or take, before it gave way to 100km/h winds, and a nice flurry of snow before plummeting to around -7. Suffice it to say, things are a bit wonky this morning. Usually I’ll be at work composing this post, but not today! Nope, my car doors are frozen shut. Solid. Nearly broke the handle off the driver and passenger doors in the process.
