Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 4

Simplifying … again Writing these posts is annoying. My usual writing is done in Org mode in Emacs, which I love. These posts are in WordPress, which means writing in a different format, lots of pesky limitations, and the need to be online to write posts or maintain the site, which is particularly annoying consideringContinue reading “Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 4”

Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 3

Thus, to produce and release a bookContinue reading “Zombies Versus Comicon Published Early”

Zombies Versus Comicon E-Book Published

After two years of languishing in the back of my notes and twelve days of long hours and intense effort, my new novel is here: Zombies Versus Comicon. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be trapped in an underground level of the Convention Center, after hours, unable to communicate with theContinue reading “Zombies Versus Comicon E-Book Published”
