Hyacinthe Loves Her Peanuts

There is a joy in caring for The Old Ones.

I find a joy in caring for The Old Ones.

I don’t want to supplant the natural ways. Evolution has designed each to be the epitome of their moment in time.

And still…

And still…

To be trusted…

More than trusted, accepted, by a wild animal. To recognize it knows you will not harm it, will cause it no pain, will let it be what it is intended to be.

What a gift.

What a gift.

 

Daniel Oliver Late Last Night Booked Me

Author Daniel Oliver read my The Augmented Man novel and was so impressed he asked to interview me for his blog.

 
Have you seen his Late Last Night Books blog? He co authors there with several notables, Lily Iona Mackenzie (who I interviewed a while back) for one.

And if that’s not enough, take a gander at who they’re interviewing.

And they want me?

My thanks to Daniel Oliver and the rest of the Late Last Night Books folks.

You can read my interview here. Be sure to leave a comment when you do.

Why It Works for Me – Craig Johnson’s “The Western Star”

This is the thirteenth in a series I’m doing wherein I discuss why a particular piece of writing works for me, aka, this piece of writing taught me something about writing, encouraged me to be a better writer, engaged me, captivated me, educated me, et cetera.

As I’ve written elsewhere, it’s one thing to know something is good, it’s a better thing (in my opinion) to know why it’s good and then be able to copy what’s good about it, to learn from it so you can be as good and (hopefully) better.

This time out, Craig Johnson’s “The Western Star”.

 

 

The Settlement now on Chronosphere Fiction Podcast

I delight when an editor/publisher asks for my work. It’s happening more often and I’m thrilled. Reminds me of Sally Field in Soapdish.

They like me. They really, really like me.

 
Recently Daniel @Fishbonius French of Chronosphere Fiction asked me to send him something and I did; The Settlement from Tales Told ‘Round Celestial Campfires.

Strangely, he accepted it (there’s no accounting for taste (and thankfully he likes my work)). Stranger, he let me narrate it.

This man is brave. Infinitely brave.

The Settlement is also available as an ebook. Enjoy!
