Okay, fair enough.

Anyway, I’ve been hard at work on Chosen: Book II, and have written (and subsequently deleted) many new and interesting scenes! I’ve also used time when I should’ve been writing to do the all-important hunt for a Book II dream cast, and I’m pleased to announce that said cast has now officially been assembled. Behold!

Blonderbatch and a decided lack of gay

After a month of watching the dust gather on my blog, I HAVE RETURNED. Well, sort of. I’m sure I’ll be back to haitus-ing before long, though I don’t want you to blame yourselves, dear readers. My absence has nothing at all do with my love for you, which grows deeper and stronger and mushier by the day. Actually, my lack of updating is a … Continue reading Blonderbatch and a decided lack of gay

In which there are both questions and answers (!)

Welcome, friends, to the first installment of Ask Me Anything, a terribly exciting series in which readers are invited to (wait for it) ask me anything. Whee!

Procrastination via blogging: take 387.

It’s Saturday again, which means I’m once again faced with a mountain of household chores that desperately need doing. So, hey, blog update! I’ve actually spent much of the morning in a somewhat productive manner, working on Chosen and finally making some progress on a scene I’ve been struggling with for about a week now.

Chosen: Stuff and More Stuff

I’ve been working hard on my fantasy novel lately, but given my minuscule attention span and attraction to All Things Internet, it was inevitable that I waste at least a little bit of time online when I should’ve been writing. But rather than watching an endless parade of cat videos or reading YouTube comments and despairing of humanity, I instead used my precious time to create…a … Continue reading Chosen: Stuff and More Stuff

Chosen, Pride Month, and a girl named Silas

Hello, friends. I’m back with an update, because it’s Sunday again and there are no lengths to which I won’t go to put off doing housework. Over the last few days, I’ve been writingwritingwriting, working hard on Chosen, A.K.A. my Gay Fantasy Epic (TM).

On location-challenged bananas and nasal psychics

Greetings, internet. As usual, it’s been awhile. One of these days I’ll get the hang of updating my blog in a timely manner, but alas, probably not anytime soon. I have high hopes for my retirement, however. Anyway, I come to you today with an Important Message! (Which you know is important due to the expert use of capitalization.) As you know, I have books and … Continue reading On location-challenged bananas and nasal psychics

Red Lobster > Gay People?

Forgive me, WordPress, for I have sinned. It’s been three weeks since my last blog post. In my defense, I’ve been using my time away from you to write!  (And to watch videos on Hulu and add to my gif collection. But mostly to write.) For the past few weeks, I’ve been hard at work on Chosen, which some may remember as my Gay Fantasy Epic … Continue reading Red Lobster > Gay People?

News and Benedict Cumberbatch

So, as you may have noticed from the deafening silence over the last few weeks, this business of updating my blog regularly is not going quite as well as expected. After a long day of teaching, I tend to want to spend my evening melting into a comfy chair and either watching Benedict Cumberbatch videos random videos starring no one in particular or stalking tumblr. The … Continue reading News and Benedict Cumberbatch
