Health and Wellness: Ill-advised Conversations with my Id

Iโ€™m a little high-strung. Without medication, my blood pressure hovers around the level you expect to find in a hyperactive Chihuahua in the throes of an Adderall extravaganza. I keep it pretty well controlled with medication. However, when I get worked up about something, I could mainline industrial doses of vodka tonics and still beContinue reading “Health and Wellness: Ill-advised Conversations with my Id”

An Irish Flashback

Almost made it through the whole day yesterday without realizing it was St Patrick’s Day. Man, I am kind of appalled at what I have become. I had to look back fondly at my first one. I passed out in the bar and was carried to a car that was either hit, or the oneContinue reading “An Irish Flashback”

The @#%^& Blurb

My God. I can fire off 100K words in no time at all it seems. Crafting a 200 word blurb to entice a reader to explore the book further, however? MURDER. It takes weeks. This is about a month’s worth of work right here, but I think this is what I am going with forContinue reading “The @#%^& Blurb”

Acid and Ozymandias Available Now on Amazon

Trying to break into publishing today is a bit like trying to make it as a musician back in the day. You start small and build yourself up gradually. Consider this short story my first gig as the opening band for the act booked at the Decatur Alabama Moose Lodge: ๐˜ผ๐™˜๐™ž๐™™ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™Š๐™ฏ๐™ฎ๐™ข๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ž๐™–๐™จ: ๐™‰๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™š๐™จ ๐™›๐™ง๐™ค๐™ขContinue reading “Acid and Ozymandias Available Now on Amazon”

Tequila Vikings

Like the Norse berserkers of old, Petty Officer Doyle Murphy was not above getting drunk and fighting an adversary naked on occasion. It was this penchant for alcoholic misadventure that earned he and his men their reputations as the USS Belleau Woodโ€™s Tequila Vikings. After the Navy nearly charges him with attempted murder, Murphy reconsidersContinue reading “Tequila Vikings”

Tequila Shorts

I generally write novels. At least, thatโ€™s what I aim for. Long, epic narratives of one hundred thousand words or more. Works that, at the start, seem like Herculean tasks that will never finish. Amid the grind, when all hope seems lost of ever getting the words right, I find it therapeutic to re-calibrate, toContinue reading “Tequila Shorts”
