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

Let’s Go Out To Dinner So We Can Ignore Each Other

This seems to be the new trend in the dining experience. People go out to a restaurant, order a few drinks while they wait for their food and then break out their phones. The other day I watched a table of three do this. All of them had their heads down, staring at their devices, texting or posting, having a conversation with everyone else but the ones they were with. If this is you, for God’s sake, kick the habit. It strikes me as so cold to sit across from people you’re breaking bread with and block them out. Believe me, I get the addiction to the web and phone. There is a such thing as common courtesy, though. If you want to take your Facebook page out to dinner, then do so, a big lonely table for one. But don’t take your friends or family out while updating the world about what you’re doing. That’s called being rude and inconsiderate. Tap into the network of the people sitting across from you. I’m sure the stories they have to tell are just as interesting. And better, you’re actually talking to someone face to face, not hiding behind your Internet persona.
