Or are they?
I will be the first to admit when this title popped in my head and I started writing it, I thought it would be a comedy, something along the lines of the humor in my Loki series.
Yeah, not so much.
Selena was too serious of a character right from the start. As the story progressed, I realized why she was so uptight. It took some prodding because she really didn’t want to admit that she’d done anything wrong. I’ll save that for the story.
But I did want to give you a preview.
Space Ninjas Aren’t Real hasn’t been run on my blog as a free story because I’ve been putting up Onesong instead. But now Space Ninjas Aren’t Real is up for pre-order and will be released on November 21, 2017 – just in time for reading while you are waiting for the turkey to cook this Thanksgiving.
Let’s go check out a sample of the story, shall we?

Selena Bennett stood at the large, cold, plastiglass window of the space dock and watched as shuttlecrafts flew to and from the larger spaceship, the Honeycomb. It would be her new home for the next couple of months. Thinking about all the supplies the Read the rest of this entry »

Oxygen will be released on October 31st. I figured a strange and weird story like this needed a special day.
While the whole story ran here, let’s have a little recap, shall we?

Heart’s “Music Man” lulled from the radio as Shelly drove across the highway through the desert. She hadn’t seen another car for miles. She liked being alone.
“Try to understand,” Shelly crooned with the music. But as she looked up at a cloud Read the rest of this entry »

A while back, I said that I was going to be in a second bundle and that an announcement was forthcoming.
Well, here it is.
My story, Fractured Echo, is included in the Dragon Tales bundle along with several other great writers like Kevin J. Anderson, Stefon Mears, and Russ Crossley.
About the bundle:
Dragons have been part of myths and fairytales for thousands of years. In this collection of stories you will discover the legends behind these fantastic creatures Read the rest of this entry »

I nearly forgot to post this! I would have had some unhappy people. (grin) Including myself.
I got so busy yesterday posting on my other site, Legendary Hero Comics, then I saw so much work that needed done on the website too. The real trouble began when I started updating. I broke the WordPress install. Okay, that wasn’t too hard to fix. Then I broke the plugins.
I think it’s time I move away from hosted WordPress installs.
I need something simple, something fun to keep updated. I will be looking into options, but nothing will probably happen until after next week. At least not visibly. I will, of Read the rest of this entry »

This week we have a long chapter before us. I have much to be doing right now, so I’m just going to get on with it.
Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 12 is available for 1 week only! Then, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear! Read the rest of this entry »

I feel so fortunate to have many good people in my life. I have a variety of friends who support me in different ways and I appreciate them all. I hope I tell them that often enough. Thank you for showing up here and being one of my readers. I’m so glad you want to share my stories with me.
I’m still floating from Salt Lake Comic Con, which was still incredible. I’m trying to get ready for Snake River Comic Con this coming weekend. It’s the first one ever, so I hope it goes well for everyone. It’s really fun to watch how cons grow over time. I’ve been lucky enough to have been doing this for a decade now and have watched several shows grow up. It’s amazing to be part of it.
Besides, like I said the other day, it’s great to be with so many creative minds. I love seeing what people come up with for costumes.
I don’t often mention this on my blog, but I probably should do so more often. If you like my writing page (the top Facebook page mentioned in the sidebar to the right), you will Read the rest of this entry »

This is now the third time I’ve tried to write this post. Third time is the charm, right? How about we start off with this:
Happy Labor Day.
Goodbye summer of 2017. Let’s not do that again.
While I’ll be glad for a reprieve from the yard work which I haven’t been diligent about this summer, I’m certainly not ready for the steadily approaching winter either. I’m not much of a fan of ice and snow. Maybe this winter will be a mellow one. Keep the snow in the mountains. Yeah, don’t want to think about that either. Moving on.
Last week wasn’t a very productive writing week. Certainly not as much as I had hoped. Oh well, some weeks are like that. I’m hoping the next four months can be very focused and productive.
By the end of the year, I really hope to have Stardust and The Three Books out in audio, as well as the 6th Loki novella (tentatively titled: Mischief on Wheels), Prince of the Read the rest of this entry »
