Besides grabbing random things from library shelves, I also search random terms in the catalogue. I can’t remember what led me to discovering that fandom and groupies were now library search terms…but they are. So, of course, had to see what that was about. This would be the result of that search. Fangirl by Rainbow … More SJ Reads: Fandom Edition
So we all know I’m a music fan. I was fortunate enough to get to see Alice Cooper and Mötley Crüe earlier in the summer. In a nutshell: an amazing show. It also apparently unleashed my creative side in terrifying new ways. It also got me thinking. I live a lot of different types of … More Dr. Feelgood or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Crue
I feel like I’ve done a lot of genre fiction excerpts this week, so for Weekend Writing Warriors let’s briefly revisit one of my literary pieces, The Other Man! One of the things that got me through such a heavy piece was that I included some hilarious interaction with Andrew’s two children…not that I ever acted … More WeWriWa: The Other Man (or the return of Mrs. Lederhosen)
Okay, okay, we’ve gotten a little heavy in the past couple of posts. While I stand by all that, it’s time to lighten things up before I totally hole up in my feelings somewhere…After the past couple of weeks, I definitely need to remember some lighter stuff. So early in July, I broke down and … More Kickstart my Nightmare: Cooper & Crue
Admittedly I’ve felt at a crossroads lately. There’s been a lot of change going on. All of it has been necessary, not all of it has been easy, and it’s obviously brought about a lot of reflection and reminiscing. A few posts back I talked about my participation in the cult of libraries, which definitely … More Music and Me

I’ve cradled it against my own cheek, and I have to admit, it’s a beautiful book full of deliciously intriguing and twisted tales that let the reader wander … More Lost in the Shadows: Now in Paperback!
So remember that secret project I’ve been alluding to? A while back, Susan and I talked about what to do with some short shorts that were homeless and decided to put together a packet for conventions. Once we started digging in our respective drives, we realized we had a lot more than a pamphlet worth. … More Cover Reveal: Lost in the Shadows by Selah Janel and S.H. Roddey
One of the things I hear the most on about The Other Man is usually about the kids. They not only lighten up the story a bit, but I’m pleased that so many people feel that they’re not only well-written, but true to form, too. Writing kids isn’t always easy. There are so many ways … More Thoughts on writing kids
Amazon All Andrew wanted was the typical American dream: a good career, a nice house, and a loving family. Instead, he has a dead-end job, a cramped apartment, and children who remind him of creatures out of a sci-fi movie. He’s also well aware that he’s not the only man who inhabits his wife’s … More Available Now and Back Again! The Other Man
I haven’t talked about In the Red for a while, so it’s always fun when I’m invited to delve into the story that I love so much. This time, my friend and amazing blogger Amy invited me to do a character post about summer plans. Of course, being the media whore that he is, JK … More JK Asmodeus is at it again!
