Busy Cop Out

Deer Reparations and Sundry Busy-ness

Some days you’re firing on all cylinders, the king of your schedule, and other days, you wonder how in the world you’re ever going to get everything done. (And where did all those items on your To Do list come from in the first place?) Today is one of those crazy busy days. On the good news front, I finally took my car in to get repaired from the deer incident over a month ago. (I still had the hunk of deer fur wedged into the fender, because if I have to drive around with a broken headlight for a

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.

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. 🙂

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
