Christmas Vacation

It’s that time of year again, folks. The time I scurry off to take my end of the year, use-it-or-lose-it vacation. So for the next couple of weeks, I’ll only be into work for a couple of days. Other than that, I’m taking a break from most everything that’s not family related. Including the blog.

If I get itchy fingers, I’ll pop in now and then, but for the most part, I’m going silent until the new year.

I hope you all have a lovely break!

Thanksgiving Hiatus

Folks, it’s been a pretty crazy semester. Between revision projects, home renovation, kids’ school activities, and Denisa teaching three classes, I’ve felt like I’ve been holding on for dear life.

So I’m going to take a vacation for Thanksgiving.

Not that I don’t usually take a vacation, but I think I’m really going to just take a step back and take a vacation from pretty much everything. Certainly the blog, and maybe even writing. I just want to clear my head for a bit and see if things can even out some. Otherwise, I just feel like this:


Round and round I go, and something tells me I’m never getting those seeds . . .

So have a pleasant holiday. You can catch me on social media some, I expect. I’ll be back after Turkey Day.

New Orleans Bound

I’m off to New Orleans later today. Heading down for the American Libraries Association annual conference. So I’m going to be out of touch as far as the blog goes for a bit. It’ll just be too crazy to keep it going and get everything else done. If something pressing comes up that I can’t keep my mouth shut about, I’ll post, otherwise, you’re on your own until next week.

I will be present on Facebook, posting some pics and updates, so if you just absolutely need to know what I’m doing, you can check me out over there. 🙂

And if you’re going to be in New Orleans as well, let me know!

Patreon Progress

I’m down at another library conference today. (This time it’s all about the wonders of scholarly communication, which basically means scholarly publishing.) So very little time for me to write a blog entry for today.

What better chance to remind you all what I’m up to over on Patreon? The second Friday of each month, I post a chapter of my current work in process. Today’s offering is the first chapter of the third draft of MURDER CASTLE. The first and third Friday each month I’ve been posting the full text of ICHABOD, a book I wrote around 10 years ago. (Essentially The Legend of Sleepy Hollow meets Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None).

So head on over there and check them out. I dropped the patron levels down to $1/$2/$3 just barely, so it’s even more affordable.

Thanks for reading!

Waving the White Flag

There are some days when writing a blog post is going to be touch and go. There are other days I just have to admit defeat and hope for more time tomorrow. Today has been one of the latter.

Sorry folks. You’re going to have to internet without me today.
