The sad part about being abroad is that I rarely have access to my firearm collection. But when I do, tomfoolery ensues. This here is my very favorite gun. Enclicken on title.
There are many writing tutorials available for free on Youtube and if you’re interested in getting published I highly recommend you check some of them out. I have learned so much from watching these over the last year–and most of them have done a great deal to help me craft my stories better. I stumbledContinue reading “Writing Tutorials”
As you well know, I’m pretty new to this whole “author thing” so it’s been a terrific journey as I navigate my way through all of this. When I got started writing my first novel I had already decided that it was to be the first in a three-part series and at no time didContinue reading “The Trilogy”
Chipori itself was a dirty, dusty, barren series of valleys surrounded by hills covered in trees. As I mentioned before it was dry when we were out there–the monsoons had yet to begin–and the place went up like a matchstick when we started shooting gunnery tables. Joy unbounded.

I was pissed off seeing “Ma” standing there waving at my passing Bradleys like were marching through liberating Paris from the Bosch or something. Here she was, tent already set up and cooking chow for the boys. This woman had managed to gather the intel where my company was going to be set up outContinue reading “The Company Mascot Pt II”
I really enjoy watching iWriterly and few other vloggers out there that give solid tutorials to up-and-coming writers. She’s really done a lot to help me understand the craft and the industry overall, and frankly I think her videos are worth their weight in gold. This recent one she’s put out is another really solidContinue reading “Writing Advice”
