Faces, Places, Bases, and A Word That Rhymes

It’s been a good week, buckaroos. Book 1 of SAGE went into print. My car is fixed. I bought a mug with my SAGE Kickstarter logo on it.

I also made this coolio avatar of Oliva beren Audre, the mother of the usurper in SAGE. Fun, huh? Hard to get a sort of late-Anglo-Saxon-ish look to this, but it came out fairly well. And it was fun. I used FaceYourManga to do it. I was particularly pleased that you could add age lines. I managed to get her to be doing that “mice in the pantry” look. 🙂

I’ve mentioned this place before, but I just love the Curious Places blog! Here is a post about Amaze Space in New Zealand. I would SO LOVE to visit! And also (this is me we’re talking about, after all) these fantastic public toilets across from it.

Are you a reader looking for a writer to read? Are you a writer looking for a publicist to hire? AUTHORSdB is a database of authors and authors’ services. Perty cool, I thought, and, of course, I stuck myself right in the middle of it.

Now, this is something I haven’t jumped into, and I’m not likely to, cool as it is, and I’ll tell you why. Well, first I’ll tell you what it is: It’s JukePop Serials, whereon authors publish stories a bit at a time, with comments and feedback from readers. The reason I don’t want to post anything there is: I muck about with my stories A LOT, and don’t always know what needs to be in the front until I get to the back. That being so, I would need to have the story finished before I put it up. If it’s finished, I don’t want a reader suggesting a different storyline. That would mess my head up real bad. But, for writers who work and play well with others — if there is such an animal — this looks like a world of fun!

Time is running out to back the SAGE Kickstarter campaign. Books. Swag. Tell your friends.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character goes into a maze.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
