On taxes and double standards

On taxes and double standards

I hadn’t planned to do a political post this morning. But, dayum, it’s impossible not to when looking at how some folks are losing their heads — still — over Donald Trump sitting in the White House. I blogged  at Victory Girls about some of the ways the President has successfully become the “un-Obama”, undoing a number of the previous Administrations progressive (I’d use a different word)policies that had negative impact on our […]

Announcement: Publication Dates

Announcement: Publication Dates

This morning’s blog is a bit of housekeeping. I have one set publication date to announce and a couple of tentative dates. Between them will be other projects going on. I simply haven’t figured out where they will fall in this year’s release schedule yet. The one set date is Feb. 6th. That is when Light Magic will go live. I’m very excited for this release. The book has been a great […]

Inspiration struck and life sucked

Inspiration struck and life sucked

As I sit here, sipping my second mug of Death Wish and wishing it would kick in, I find myself shaking my head. The liberals are still losing their shit over something the President may or may not have said. The MSM is treating it as a done deal, many calling Donald Trump the most racist president we’ve ever had. All the while, they ignore Dick Durbin’s rather dubious track record for […]

Is it safe to come from under the bed?


The last few days have been interesting in the proverbial sense of the word. The president is once again being labelled as racist for something he may — or may not — have said in a private meeting. A traitor to our country, one who has even less understanding of OpSec than HRC has filed papers to run for the US Senate. If that’s not enough to make you want to hide […]

This week has been beyond busy. But I’ve gotten a great deal done. I started a new series of posts over at According to Hoyt. I’ve had a couple of posts published over at Victory Girls – and there will be another one later today or tomorrow. then there were my two posts at Mad Genius Club. I’ve managed to check formatting and get updates prepared for about half my books. Those […]

History: Helping Understand Today

History: Helping Understand Today

I have a guest post up at According to Hoyt this today. When I sat down to write it, I did so with one purpose in mind — to explain why I’d chosen State and Revolution by Vladimir Lenin as the next book to review for the blog. I’ll admit, part of it was because I couldn’t take starting another long book review on yet another book about the 2016 presidential election. […]

Light Magic – Snippet 3

(This is from the rough draft of Light Magic. There may be — and probably are — misspellings, grammar issues and more that will be corrected in the editing phase. You can find Snippet 1 here and Snippet 2 here. Of course, the usual disclaimers apply.) Welcome home? What the hell was she talking about? “Someone had better start explaining or I’m out of here.” To put action to words, I dug […]

Those pesky facts


I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry right now. I’ve haven’t been a fan of main stream media for a long time. Oh, there are still some good reporters out there but they are being silenced more and more, especially on the national level, by corporate offices more concerned with their own political agendas than they are about reporting the facts. That bias has been ringing loud and clear over […]

On minimum wage issues, writing and more

subway 1

First things first, I have a post up at Victory Girls about the impact of the new minimum wage laws on franchisee holders and, as a result, on their employees. One of the things that has always bothered me when it comes to mandatory wage increases is that too many people don’t consider the impact those increases will have. They don’t think about how it means a rise in cost to the […]

When actions impact brand


No, this isn’t about the current kerfuffle over WorldCon. If you want an excellent take on it, check out Jason Cordova’s post over at Mad Genius Club. This has to do with how a Hollywood persona’s dramatic tweets proving her deep-seated Trump Derangement Syndrome have ruined a show for my mother and myself. Oh, and there’s a bit of speculation about how the revelations about Harvey Weinstein would have impacted the same […]
