Ready for Prime Time – Again!

So in a fit of excitement about some upcoming readings, and a looming realization that I didn’t have any new material to sell at said readings, not to mention the understanding that Returning the Favor has finally almost sold out the initial print run and thus pretty much broke even or maybe actually made me a little bit of money, I have put together another collection, this time all poetry. This is poetry for people who don’t like poetry. Poems for people who drink too much, live too loud and have too many skeletons in their closet. Basically, people like […]

Looking for feedback

I think this is the beginning of a new book. Lemme know what you think. Also, I have a new collection of poetry coming out in the next couple of weeks, and I believe The Chosen will be available for iPad, Kindle and other e-readers by late September, with hard copies available from But check this out and let me know what you think, please.

I also passed out a bunch of business cards and talked to a bunch of folks about Choices, my novel. If you’re one of […]

If anybody is still around…

So am I. I’m here, kinda. Been an odd couple of months with no real motivation to write here. But after a good weekend of cranking out some 5,000 words on a new novel (which I think might be the first of a series), I’ve rediscovered the need to write here. So I will. More. I promise. But don’t hold your breath for any kind of daily content or anything like that. Let’s not get silly.
