In part, I am a science fiction reader and geek; a computer gamer and geek; and a writer of science fiction and fantasy, questionable poetry, and weird blog posts. I've been self-publishing on the web for years. It's a lot easier than it used to be. Most of my 'published' work has never seen an editor, and I wrote the web code myself--but I'm not charging for it, so there's that.
Stay tuned. I'm working on a series of stand-alone novels set in a world of dark and powerful magic. The first novel, Bred
, is available at Smashwords.com, and as of November 2011, the second novel is in progress at NaNoWriMo
. It's a hobby, so I'm taking my time, and I'm having fun with it.
Fort Falling was a fictional web log I started as a writing exercise. I'm still surprised at how long I worked on it. I hope it's more entertaining then a standard blog, because I'm fairly certain my own life is only interesting to me. I recently published it as an ebook, which you can download for free from the Smashwords.com
Poems, commentary, and exercises with a common theme. I consider these the spiritual parents of Fort Falling.
Poems with a dark mood.
I wrote this article for a fan magazine called Gryphon. It was later improved greatly by the removal of half the words, and then publish online by Eggplant Productions (which went out of business a year or so later).
