Focusing On The Good

I was a real crankosaurus rex the other day, so I wanted to do a little self-indulgent and positive post about my career too. Here is that. I've seen a lot of great reviews for every book I've put out so far. Now, my version of "a lot" is nothing compared to other authors, but… Continue reading Focusing On The Good

Do any of these words make sense to anyone else? No? Well, that's fine, they make sense to me! This is from Throne in the Dark, a fantasy series I'm releasing in 2022.

Getting There

I've rewritten this blog about four times this morning because I've got the desire to put some feelings out there, but I'm not sure what those even are.

Listen To This!

Today I'm just here to implore you to listen to some music. It's amongst my favorite in terms of genre: comedy. Except "comedy" isn't really a genre of music, it's just how you interpret lyrics. The actual genre is like synth/alt/indie, I guess? I don't know, it's pretty transcendent, but if you like good music… Continue reading Listen To This!

Does Community Deserve That Movie It’s Always Talking About?

I just finished watching the sixth season. I religiously watched the show when it aired, back when you had to wait for TV. I loved it, in many ways it taught me more about humor and meta-ness than anything else ever has, and I hate to brag but I was committed enough to actually tweet… Continue reading Does Community Deserve That Movie It’s Always Talking About?
