Fun on Several Fronts

My good friend, and fellow author, Cherri Galbiati just published her first short story direct to this week. It is a small Christmas story called "Halo and Holly," and can be purchased on the kindle here. Way to go, Cherri!

On another front, I just hit publish on "A Memory of Me" a while back and I'll probably be showing it off tomorrow or the next day. Of course, everybody has already seen the cover since I can't keep anything a secret when it comes to my own writing, and I'm driven to rush out and show everybody as soon as I have anything. So things are getting done.

On yet another front, I managed to resolve a bit of a mental block I had where I had written myself into a corner with a story. Oddly enough, that story is my shelved novel Argiope which I wasn't even working one.

I have given up trying to figure out what rhyme or reason my mind works by, and now I just accept it when it decides to do something helpful for me...even when that help is on a completely unrelated project. This doesn't necessarily mean I'm going to pull Argiope off the shelf, not unless I get a clearer idea how I'm going forward, but now at least I know going forward is  possible again. So, we'll see. That novel with big spiders, secret organizations, and killer amazons with huge guns might still see the light of day yet. Heck, I'm already forty-five thousand words into it, so it's almost half written.

Anyways, it's time to move boldly forward into the month of September, and see what we shall see.


  1. Who can ever explain why our minds do what they do??? Good for you on resolving that Argiope issue...yikes! Those spiders!

    And thank you so much for sharing your blog space on my short story. I loved writing that short story more than anyone will ever know. Thanks again,

  2. Yep. I just ripped out 2,500 words on it this morning. Now I'm at a stopping place, but I'm not blocked...just trying to choose the best way to go forward.

    I was happy to see your story go up, and more than happy to promote it. Welcome to the wild and wonderful world of "indie" authoring.

    Mine may go up tomorrow. We shall see.

  3. I'll be looking for "Shades: A memory of Me" and as soon as it comes up--let me know...
    P.S. I promise not to be the FIRST one to buy it this time! lol lol lol. I'll hold off for being the 2nd. ha.
