Deadly Divinities

Today, I’m off to Magna cum Murder Mystery Festival for a weekend of good food and good company. It would be better if Mom came with us, but she decided to sit this one out. Maybe in 2014. Everybody misses her when she doesn’t attend!

I’ll be going this year for the first time as a publisher AND an author, in my capacity as part of the Three Fates / Line By Lion publishing house. Our funding campaign is still underway; no contribution too small — or too large! ~grin~

Speaking of murder and stuff, have you been to morgueFile? Masses and masses of free photos, with the only limitation is that you must fiddle with them, not use them exactly as they are, and not claim you took the photos. No pay, no license, no attribution necessary.

And then there is the wonderful GODCHECKER.COM, which makes me happy. “Poking deities with a pointy stick since 1999.” Most deities could use a good poke or two. Hop on over and check out the Deity Of The Day, or browse by religion or geography. What profiteth it a man that he should gain his soul yet lose an hour or two of his precious time? Or something like that.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Pick a photo at random from morgueFile and a deity at random from Godchecker, and put them together in a story.



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.

      I’m here, ensconced in a hotel that is much too fancy for me. Fortunately, the waitresses are sympathetic. When I said the menu prices were too high for us, she gave us the po’ fo’ks’ menu and we had a great meal! We brought the leftovers up to our room and we’ll have ’em for breakfast. Ha!
