And you thought you’d escaped this! As I’ve been trying to get organized (ha) and attempting to clean (bwaha), I’ve unearthed some fabulous artifacts from my early writing life So of course the only option for this is to use it to humiliate myself, obviously. For those who aren’t familiar, every once in a while … More The Lost Manuscripts: Tom the Turkey
I’ve been working on a few projects lately, and that always gets me thinking about the process of writing. I love words and how they fit together, the imagery they conjure, the emotions they evoke. Words are magic…sometimes literally, like in this case. This is another little bit from Lost in the Shadows, a little … More Prose: Obsolete Words
I’ve been debating if I was going to mention this for a few weeks now, ever since a friend of mine posted it on Facebook. I agree with a lot of it, but I also think that it (somewhat) takes for granted what a hard time it is if you choose to make a creative … More Real Life as an Artist or How Much are You Worth?
People love asking me different things about writing, about designing and building costumes, about performing, about all my aspects of creative life.

So I realized that in my ramblings about Evillecon and all that in March, I left out a huge part of that weekend. We all know I love books, but I really have a mad addiction to libraries. I’ve loved them ever since I was a kid. I still remember the very first library trip … More Coming Full Circle
It’s not often you get to actually interact or interview one of your inspirations, but I’m incredibly excited to have this opportunity tomorrow (Wednesday, July 9). Join us 9PM EST on The Star Chamber Show when we put G Tom Mac in the hot seat and ask him about his songwriting, his … More G Tom Mac on The Star Chamber Show!
I’m really excited to finally (FINALLY) get my bud Michael West on here to talk about writing. Before I ever met him I was orbiting him for years, and I’m pretty sure there was at least one convention where I was too scared to death to talk to him because he was so far … More TCM Presents: Hades’ Disciples by Michael West
I’m always thrilled when I get to participate in different projects with other authors. I’m also always humbled when people approach me. A while ago, the good people at The Realm Beyond sent me a gorgeous image they’d wanted to use for a cover and asked if I’d write a story to go with it. … More Available Now: The Realm Beyond Issue 5
I’m once more trying to get back in the swing of things after a fairly busy past few months. Today’s eight is from a re-release of my historical vampire story, Mooner. This bit is when Bill, the naive upstart in the lumber camp, notices Tom, a reclusive, down-and-out fur-trader, in Red’s Saloon. While Big John … More WeWriWa: Mooner
