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. ๐Ÿ‘Š

Elizabeth Hahn and the Accident on Tupper Mountain (short story and opportunity)

Image
Here is order number two for today in the I Will Kill you for $5 project. If you like the stories you read, don't hesitate to join them in the depths of the abyss. I mean, er, order a short story... yeah.
First up, the download link is available here (story is in PDF, epub, and mobi formats). So you can take them wherever you read things: computers, tablets, eReaders, phones, refrigerators. I won't judge. Harshly. It is also available below in this post.

Above is the real-deal Elizabeth Hahn, or so the Internet has told me. I first met Elizabeth on Google+ somehow, I can't recall how, maybe she can remind me in the comments. She turned into one of my few and lovely beta readers for my first book Sweet Sixteen Killer -- which she has been waiting for me to publish very patiently since reading the early version. When setting up her order, this was her answer regarding the genre, "SciFi, campy SciFi, Old school mystery a la Agatha Christie or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle." …

Cass Morrison and the Package from Saron (short story and opportunity)

Image
I've reactivated my Fiverr gig, the I Will Kill you for $5 project. And two victims were eager to join us at the slaughter. I mean... I have two new customers. That also means my lucky readers have two new short stories incoming to read. 
First things up first... the download link is here (the story is available in PDF, epub, and mobi). Take it where you want to read; computer, phone, eReader, tablet, etc. Otherwise, you can scroll down and read it directly in this blog post as well.

The above image is of the real Cass Morrison and her pup, Bennie. She had made a jest about possibly including Bennie in the space opera she had asked me to write, and well, I couldn't resist playing with that idea. Cass and Bennie are both present in the story. I've worked with Cass (and others) on a daily check-in we do on Pluspora.com, and she is a wonderful person. It was exciting to get her order. 
But, no more fluff, let's get to the good stuff. Enjoy the reading, and sound off in the c…

More short stories incoming from the I Will Kill you for $5 project

Tomorrow I will be releasing on this blog two more stories in the I Will Kill you for $5 project I run through Fiverr.
I'm excited to be back at it again, and feel free to join in with only $5. 
How it works is you pay me $5 through the Fiverr project and I have 7 days to deliver a short story or flash fiction where you get knocked off somehow. You'll have 3 variants to download (PDF, epub, mobi) and I also post it to the blog. You only pay $5, but everyone else gets to read for free. 
Stay tuned for the release of the two stories tomorrow. 
How are you all doing? Sound off in the comments.

BOOST: Probably one of the biggest mistakes we can make in life...

I stumbled on an old Google+ post from May 2018. I'm boosting it and embedding a link to it here. Click on it below to check it out. It's part of my ๐Ÿ’ญWeaver's Deep Thoughts collection.

"Where has the evening gone to?"

I can't believe I didn't post a single blog post for February. That's insane. I've been busy writing too, just not blogging. And while I know I haven't kept up with the "daily" aspect of my challenge, I've been writing a lot on the days I do write. I've been writing 1-2 times per week. Mostly I've been working on the Night Aggressions horror story we've been slowly releasing at Emerald Dragon here
It's been quite a journey, and the story is almost completely online now. Should wrap up in April. I only have 3 chapters left to write in it, too. I'll try to knock out one or two on Wednesday.  Moving forward from Night Aggressions My mind is already starting to drift back to my book, Sweet Sixteen, which I'm planning to have ready for ALL to read this year. I welcome the renewed energy coming. My game plan at the moment is to try and have the editing done and dusted over the summer, cover artwork, and formatting. And then I'…
