My Margarita Martini Recipe

Tags : 

As stolen from Trudy’s restaurant in Austin, Tx.  Y’all, I have spent more than a few years drink testing every margarita I can find. Most places get it wrong. They throw a bottle of Master of Mixes margarita mix in with some tequila and call it quits. These places are not worth returning to. However,

Brick

Tags : 

By now you’ve probably seen Director Rian Johnson’s movie Rogue One.  Yeah, I agree, it’s amazing. Especially the last few minutes with that Vader in the Hall scene.  Bad ass Vader is back! But have  you seen Rian Johnson’s first film Brick?   It’s one of my favorite films from the early 2000’s.  It’s a

Cloak & Dagger

Tags : 

The original Cloak & Dagger comic mini series was one of my favorite series as a kid. It’s a bit dated in its portrayal of characters, but over all it’s a really good. Two kids run away and get swept up with dangerous people. And get superpowers. Which normally doesn’t happen to runaways, but this

Under a curse

So, I go through this cycle when I start a new project.  I think of it as my very own personal creators curse. Step 1 is “Wow, this is a really good idea!” Step 2 is “This is just so much fun! I love this idea. Step 3 is “Huh. Hm. Well. This is a

Obsidian Son (The Temple Chronicles #1)

  I’d be remiss if I criticized this book for having an unlikable protagonist.  My protagonist, Jack Story, is designed to be unlikable.  However, I do have to say that the protagonist in Obsidian Son is unsympathetic. A lot of people think that you have to make your protagonist likable for the audience to root

2 Weeks Later…

Tags : 

It’s amazing how exhausting launching a book can be.  I’ve done it 5 times now, and each time it is an emotional rollercoaster.  It’s pretty much impossible for me to get any solid writing done during the whole time. And this was the most successful launch I’ve had to date.  An “average” book will sell

Time for a cover!

Tags : 

Howdy, y’all! You may not know this, but a few weeks ago I had a problem.  I got together with my cover designer Christine, and she came up with a couple of cover designs that were pretty cool. But she came up with 2 of them that were really kick ass. I couldn’t make up

Back of the book blurbs

Tags : 

Writing them is hard. Like, I’d rather write another book than write one of these. The thing about a good synopsis is that it has to 1: entice the reader. 2: provide enough detail of the plot but 3: not give away the core of the story and 4: be succint enough that someone can

This Book made me have an Existential Crisis

Tags : 

  So, I bought into this book on the description’s first sentence: If you love Star Wars and Starcraft, you’ll love this book.” I love both those things so I was like “Sure!” And it started off like an episode of Battlestar Galactica. Which I also love. There was a hot-headed pilot. There were CAG’s.
