NaNoWriMo is coming along swimmingly. So far, I’m ahead of schedule. I’m not killing myself off, both because I don’t have to and because I don’t want the quality of my writing to suffer (too much). But I wanted to take a moment to think about projects that didn’t make the cut. Sometimes you write … More Where do you bury the bodies?
It’s amazing how much of my life is motivated by guilt. When I’m not writing, I feel guilty for not doing so. Then when I start writing, I usually get obsessive about it, and I neglect something else, like getting ready for classes, which start here in four weeks, which makes me feel guilty again. … More Still Alive. Still Kicking. Still Writing.
Tesla’s Ghost is now available on Amazon. Technically, the paperback’s been available for about a week, and the ebook’s been available for pre-order for about the same amount of time. But my book (#22 if you’re keeping count) is unencumbered by any constraints and is out there, for better or for worse, to purchase and … More A “Ghost” of a Chance

In case you can’t read the back cover copy (which is pretty important), here it is as well: It was a simple leather notebook…that could save the world. When Fritz Löwenstein came to America in 1892 to work for … More Introducing: the Cover for Tesla’s Ghost
I’ve never been the kind who can keep a secret very well. Our usual Christmas routine is that Shelly tells me what she wants and I get it for her. OR, more likely, she says, “let me go pick it out,” and I agree. Boring, I know. Well, I’m sitting on a secret that’s driving … More Upwrapping a New Cover
My wife and I are finally in the 21st Century. We disconnected our cable and we are totally dependent on the Web for our entertainment. What that ends up is lots of binge watching of series, like our recent rediscovery of the masterful Sanctuary series that we got on Amazon for a small rental fee. … More That Special Someone…Hero or Villain
“The world does not need more Christian literature. What it needs is more Christians writing more good literature.” — C.S. Lewis The city of the future was made of glass and steel, and shone brilliantly in the night. It was surrounded by ribbons of light, a steady stream of vehicles shining in the night as … More It’s About The Fall of Adam and Eve. Or About the Antichrist. Or Maybe Neither of Them.
Some of you may be wondering what is happening with my book, Tesla’s Ghost. Some of you may not be wondering at all. Some of you may be wondering who Tesla is. In any case, I just finished my second edit of the book, which consisted of reading the manuscript aloud to my wonderful, patient … More Wherefore Art Thou, Tesla?
Well, yesterday was a godsend. I got an incredible amount of writing done, and at the end of the day I found myself just three chapters away from having my first draft of Tesla’s Ghost completed.
