New contribution to Totally Novel on writing, update on Sweet Sixteen Killer

Image
I've been pretty quiet lately on the blog, sorry about that. I've been laying mostly low, though I did recently begin contributing to a new website for writers and readers called Totally Novel. My first contribution for members of the site is a post I titled 3 things that prevented me from writing a novel. To read the post, sign up for a free trial. Take a look around and if you don't wanna stay, don't renew membership. That said, it's a pretty cool effort being put together by a former Google+ member like myself. As a matter of fact there are several members on the site from the old Google+ days. (Side note: there is a free membership option)
I will be contributing to the Totally Novel blog bi-monthly for now. My next addition will be in August. I'm super excited for the site and I hope you can come join us and become a part of the groups, forums, blog, workshops, and more. 
All that said, I haven't given up here. This is still my primary site and blog. 👊

Get eBook of Fatal Flaws FREE for limited time

Image
For a limited time, until May 1, you can get an eBook copy of Fatal Flaws at Smashwords for FREE.

Use this code on checkout: QW65S

Fatal Flaws is the first in a series of collaborative novels among myself and several other indie authors. It was loads of fun to work on. The second book is complete, edited, and being shopped for a publisher at the moment, so now is a good time to read the first book. No, the second isn't a sequel, but there is talk of a sequel amongst the authors (but no guarantees on that). You can learn more on Fatal Flaws here.

For now, enjoy the first on us!

I tried to be sociable on Facebook today, but it was all posts with siblings. Gag me.

Sure I have siblings. Sure they're alright. Sure we have nice pictures. Like this one. But it doesn't mean we have to go crazy, folks.







PS--This is a bad representation of my siblinghood, because my little sister is missing. It should be (from left), Sarah, Me, Micah, and Andrew. That's youngest to oldest. Being third is a weird place in the lineup, for the record. This picture was taken in January, on the morning of Micah's wedding. He's in the middle looking dapper for his bride. And yes, there was a jacket that went with that 3-piece.

The Annunaki Promise - a free short story for the month of April

The Annunaki Promise - a free short story for the month of April



Here is a new short story I wrote a couple of months ago for crime author Neal James (Philip Neale). He has a Rogues Gallery spot on his website where he features one author's short story for a month. I'm your April Fool this month, with a short story mixing humanity, science fiction and ancient myths. This story has plenty of references to these old religious ways from Mesopotamian cultures (i.e., one of them is Babylon, go figure since my website is http://talesfrombabylon.com and I've been writing this Tales from Babylon project since 2005!). 







So, go ahead and enjoy a little read on me and Neal. It's an easy, light read. Though, hopefully, mildly thought-provoking. 







Thanks Phil for hosting me again, for like the third or fourth time! And if you're a writer who wants to be hosted by Phil, just follow the instructions on the page. 







And let me know what you think of the story.
