The Proper Way to Describe the Itsuro-Shegami Technique When Applied to Nipple Joints

 
Rahki World author Rennie St. James invited me to guest blog WRITING REALISTIC HAND-TO-HAND COMBAT SCENES and I did.

I did I did I did!

Can’t tell you how many versions I came up with.

No, actually I can because I revision everything – four.

Some of those early versions…a beautiful demonstration of not knowing what to write about. There were lots of ways to go at it. Do I write about my many years teaching hand-to-hand mixmaster beef loin braising techniques at the Academie du HaHa in Paranormal, France?

Probably too graphic for most readers. No.

Instead I went with how to write a combat scene such that the reader believes it.

Hope it worked.

Let Rennie and me know, okay?

And thanks.

Lifting an Ale at Joshua Robertson’s Book Tavern

In the better late than never department – and my apologies for this – Joshua Robertson interviewed me in his Book Tavern a while back.

I could give you excuses why I’m just posting this now.

Except I recently encountered the following quote:

 
So, recognizing that it’s easier to do what’s right rather than increase my mistakes, I’m posting about it now.… Read the rest

In the better late than never department – and my apologies for this – Joshua Robertson interviewed me in his Book Tavern a while back.

I could give you excuses why I’m just posting this now.

Except I recently encountered the following quote:

Excuses are lies wrapped up in reasons.
– Howard Wright

 
So, recognizing that it’s easier to do what’s right rather than increase my mistakes, I’m posting about it now.

Part of the fun of Joshua Robertson’s (and have you checked out his bookcovers? Some serious artwork there) interview was his holding my feet to the fire regarding my past life.

No, not the one when I was leading the Babylonian Ziggurats to the Fertile Crescent Soccer Championship of 2,100BC, the other one, when I was the Chief Scientist, et cetera, for several companies and created a technology complete with several patents.

So I had a life.

Before I became a full-time author.

Who knew?

Enjoy the interview.

And buy my books. Even the technical ones written when I was a Chief this-and-that.

Tech Thriller Authors Charles Breakfield and Rox BurkeyWelcome one and all to another Northern Lights Books’ author interview plunge. Today’s guests are an enigma.

Not really, they write about enigmas. Specifically, the Enigma TechnoThriller series (there are nine books in the series as we publish this interview in early July 2018).

Known as Breakfield and Burkey, Charles Breakfield and Rox Burkey have known each other professionally and as friends for mumbledy-mumbledy years. About mumbledy years ago they realized both enjoyed writing beyond their work-a-day requirements and decided to collaborate on things they knew from work. Rox specializes in corporate communications and Charles specializes in security, communications technology and anything with bits and bytes. Their work takes them across the globe and involves them in high level discussions most of us wouldn’t understand. Fortunately, they remove the unnecessary technospeak from their novels and leave in the thriller parts. Good stuff, that!
