Nearing The End

Dead Talker has been a trial.  The original intent was to do something similar to Jeopardy, but more of an exorcism than an exploration. Jeopardy was about tapping into an obsession and controlling it, in order to reach pinnacles and peace never before seen, with a warning not to slip.  Jeopardy’s actions in the book …

Captain Hanna Playlist

I did this for Jeopardy and I can’t resist doing it for Captain Hanna.  I’ve been picking at this for a while, but with the next book on the verge, I felt it was time to just sign off on it and put it up. As I mentioned with Jeopardy, I like to pair music …

Well, okay, never coffee. I’m burying myself in this new novella, which admittedly, is practically Gothic in its darkness.  If Jeopardy were …

Captain Hanna

Banner week, I guess.  Not only did I manage to get Jeopardy published (retaining after first publishing rights), I completed another manuscript for a novella about a group of lady pirates called Captain Hanna. Hanna may not be as nice as she seems. Of course, then the news of Gord Downie’s death struck, and once again, I find …
