Upcoming...


For the record (if anyone will ever see this) I feel like this whole project belongs in someone else's life.  This doesn't feel like something I would do, and I think I've been sucked into the idea of living as a 'content creator' by all the people I watch.

An idea has been growing in my mind of another path in life to pursue.  One where I buy a plot of land and start a commune, but not one of those hippie places where everyone has dreads and wants to reconnect with Mother Earth through yoga and organic, home-grown vegetables.

I mean, sure; there would be sustainable farming, but there would also be rifle ranges and workshops for carpentry and mechanics.  We would live off the grid with our own solar panels and methods of collecting/storing water.  The people living there would be all about thinking outside the box, and helping one another.  They would be about learning for the sheer love of it.

There would be tv, and computers, and whatnot, but those things would be seen as tools instead of crutches.

...In short, this site will most likely be taken down soon.  It's too much of a distraction to my novel writing until I get a better job, or a thousand people spontaneously decide to subscribe at the $2 tier.  One more week...

A Paywall Hopper

You'll get access to all the content on this page. That would be primarily the short stories, essays, and some audio-based things. I'll also send you a copy of my books as they get published on Amazon. As a baseline, I try to publish at least two of them each year, so that's a pretty good bargain in and of itself.

A Novel Fellow

Each time I release a novel on Amazon, you will receive a signed copy in the mail. In addition, you can pitch an idea for a character to me and I'll try to incorporate them into my current work, especially if they're blatantly based on you! My books tend to have big rosters, so there's plenty of room. (-;

A 'Shortening of the Way'

From time to time I make pieces of fine art using physical media. The majority of this can be found on my Instagram page. At this level you would get your choice of two prints to start, and another one every time I finish a new work. This is in addition to the perks from the other, lower tiers.

A Commissioner

All the benefits of the previous tier, PLUS you get to commission one custom piece of art from me once a year. I will mail the finished work to you, and it doesn't have to be strictly visual. It can be something in audio or text format, as well. Something that comes to mind would be a side story based on one of my books, or you can be featured in an episode of the podcast.

Features

  • Hello and welcome to my playground! Every week I'll release at least one piece of work or another. Could be a podcast. Could be a short story, or an essay. Any news articles I post will be weird, people... Nothing I can do about that, it's just the way I'm wired. The essays may seem unhinged, to which I say: see the previous statement. However, they should be entertaining. Isn't that the goal? Are you not entertained by this dancing monkey routine?

My First Podcast


Hello, fellow travelers!  I'm pleased to announce the release of my first-ever podcast!  I'm making this free for all until I figure out a better method of publication.  You can listen at the link below.  I made sure that it plays with the screen turned off for anyone wanting to hear it while on-the-go.

In this episode, I interview a self-educated historian in Jerome Paquette, who focuses on celebrities.  Specifically between about 1920 and 1970.  He has a minor claim to fame from his investigation into a 20+ year old cold case about an alleged murder.  We talk about that and much more...

Also, I would like to apologize in advance for the audio quality, as my only pieces of equipment are my phone and a cheap Linux laptop.  There are also a lot more technical issues than I had anticipated insofar as finding decent music that's also free...

Anyway, here it is:

I'm a real boy, now!




My online identity has been verified by our corporate overlords, and now I can get to work.  Yikes!  Looks like I gotta put my money where my mouth is now...

Up on deck, I have a short story tentatively titled "Reconstruction Room."  I have the basic premise down, but the specifics elude me.  I should have it done by this weekend.

Next weekend I'm releasing a podcast I recorded this last Saturday with a good friend of mine who's something of a Hollywood historian, and quite the character.  He spends his entire life performing a standup routine that only a few people get.

In the midst of all this I'm also working on my second book, which is still untitled as of yet.  It's a direct sequel to The Lords of Stone and Sky, and should be a much longer piece with more illustrations.

Hello, world!  Until the powers that be verify my identity (whatever that means), consider this page to be under construction.  I suppose that's the price I pay for being a digital hermit these last few years...

In the mean time, there are a few things I have in the pipeline: a short story, a podcast, and an opinion piece/essay.  That last one will most likely be something like a mini biography.

If you're interested in seeing my existing work, please visit the link below to my first book entitled 'The Lords of Stone and Sky.'  Scan the QR code if you're savvy and/or lazy enough.

Goals

$0.00 of $2,000
per month
As of now, I work 40+ hours a week at a normal job and another 10+ hours writing/drawing for my novel. That leaves the leftovers to this project. If I can reach this monthly monetary goal, then I would be able to 'upgrade' to a part-time job which would then allow me to put in more hours for y'all. I live a minimal lifestyle, so I don't require much.
