Since it’s the day after Halloween, I thought I’d stay with my creepy theme a little longer and give you some horror! Since I love vampires and I love historical fiction, here’s a bit of Mooner to help you recover from your Halloween! And remember – for a look at more authors, be sure to … More WeWriWa: Drink Up!
So one of my big author influences is Ray Bradbury. For me, his books are emotional, elegant, unique in plot, and true in characterizations. He’s also a master at literary horror, so I wanted to highlight a few of my favorites of his today. Granted, a lot of his work is short stories, so I’m … More SJ Reads: Bradbury is My Horror Hero #amreading
I know, it’s a new week, but I’m probably sleeping the convention off, and I feel like giving you guys something to entertain yourselves with. We’ll get back to rants and weirdness soon enough, I swear. Sometimes a story comes from a deep emotional place, and a lot of these times that’s a great big … More Excerpt: The Guru
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)
I do a lot of writing in anthologies, and this is probably one of my favorite pieces that has shown up in them. It also apparently made John Hartness lose his ever-loving mind and not hunt me down for breaking all his rules, so there’s that, too. This is one of those stories that incorporated … More Excerpt: Real Wild Childe (or street vamps falling in love)
Today, I feel like vampires. So vampires it shall be. Well…lumberjacks that run into vampires, because in my world that combination is a beautiful thing and it’s still my birthday week, so there you go. This bit is from Mooner, an e-book title of mine that combines my love of pioneer history with my love … More Excerpt: Mooner (or vampires and lumberjacks rock my world)
Today’s excerpt is again from Lost in the Shadows, and it’s one of those stories where the idea hit me hard but it took me a while to give myself permission to write it. I’m not a hard sci-fi writer by any means, but I love the more emotional and literary work of Ray Bradbury. … More Excerpt: Across the Universe
Since today is my birthday (feel free to leave your gratuitous praise and adoration in the comments), I figured I’d post something appropriate. Since it’s a con week, I am going to be lazy and totally pimp my excerpts all this week because I am old and I can. It is a known fact that … More Short: September Children
I’m trying to get back into this, because there are so many excellent authors putting out little snippets over the weekend and I miss them. Be sure to check out the full weekend writing warrior list, too! Today’s sentences come from one of my older releases, the literary drama The Other Man. Andrew’s disenchanted with how … More WeWriWa: The Other Man
