The Grocery Cart from Hell

I’m going out on a limb here and saying that I’m not the only one who despises that grocery cart in desperate need of a 100,000 mile maintenance. As soon as you start pushing it you know you should whip a U-turn, park it and grab a sparkly new one, but you grit your teeth and tell yourself to ride it out. More »

The Convention Chronicles

I’ve been on a literary convention hiatus for a couple of years now. Mostly due to a busier personal life: a more demanding day job, successful publishing house, the kids have gotten older and their lives more active and then trying to fit in writing amid the chaos. Drum roll please! Thanks to the kind folks at CONvergence I’ll be back on the panels, hoping to spread my industry knowledge with reckless abandon. More »

Hate Mail

I thought I’d post some hate mail from one man in particular, not only geared at myself but Skullvines Press. Enjoy, because it entertains the shit out of me! And I bet you can’t guess who said these wonderful things! More »

Race Traitor By Trade

I’m not lying when I say I hear comments about race on a daily basis, but if anything is ever directed toward me or used in a conversation with me I’m quick to address it. More »

Stages of Bodily Decomposition

I found this to be really intriguing. Hard to believe the human body is reduced to this process. Still trying to picture myself going through such a reversed metamorphosis. I grabbed and copied this delightful info from this link: More »

New Marines Memoir on Bolivia

New Marines memoir on Bolivia hits the digital shelves from KHP Publishers, Inc.

Jorge Reilly risked his life for his country, and he was told to deny everything.

In this thrilling memoir of conflict and covert operations, follow Jorge from a troubled teen in Illinois to the U.S. Marines, where he found himself fighting to protect the Tupi people from Cuban revolutionaries in Bolivia.

Of course, his country wasn’t finished with him after that. There were services needed handled in post-war Vietnam and a task involving Stinger missiles in Afghanistan.

Cowboy Up! Freeing the Tupi in Bolivia offers a glimpse at a military life no one knew about until now.

Do You Write With Patience?

Do you write with patience? I know I do. I’m sure 1/18th of the global population has been wondering if S.D. Hintz has thrown in the towel. First of all, I only do that in a locker room full of sweaty guys. Secondly, being an editor, writer, and full time blue collar man, pulling out the author card has its challenges, but one I’m still all too eager to embrace. Now is the time you ask: “So, what in the hell have you been doing?”

I’d like to say I’ve been penning another horror novel to add to my run, but the truth is I’ve been plunging into the depths of young adult/sci-fi/fantasy/adventure, which I’m sure is its own hybrid genre. Quite frankly, I know it’s one of the best tales I’ve written (with plans to turn it into a series) and sticks to the moral of turning a flaw into a forte. It is also a work that more than likely will not see the light of a day until I lock down an agent and/or mainstream publisher. I’ve put so much time and effort into it that I’m reluctant to settle for less. On the same token I’m a realist. While my hopes are as high as any author’s, I’m also aware that it takes extreme talent and latching onto the right people to have a shot at success. And still, I need to continue to write with patience.

So no, I haven’t quit writing, I’m just taking my sweet old time, tending my garden of grandiose storytelling, or so I tell myself. Write with patience. An author must sculpt with it. An author must submit with it. An author should embody it. A reader, on the other hand, can be as impatient as they want. Once they’re done reading your book, there’s ten million other authors to explore. It is the beauty of reading.

Bear with me, my friends. I write with patience. One day this golden book will grace your hands.
