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

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. 👊

Side note... I have been working on a new story. A freebie, and horror. Been working on it with fellow author Trent Becker. We should have it done soon. Fingers crossed and all that. Below is a visual sneak peek. In the meantime, I'll be breathing.

My wife and I have been watching True Blood. We had never seen it before. But we've been binging through the series. And as we get closer and closer to the end of the series, it becomes a little bittersweet, because we lost Nelsan Ellis recently. He played Lafayette. He's been one of my favorite characters. And as a performer what he could accomplish with a look or flick of a finger is profound. He's been such a delight to watch.

Check out these gifs I found of Nelsan as Lafayette. Enjoy them. And Nelsan, rest in peace.
