Writing, not Writing

I know I haven’t posted anything personal here in a while.  I hope you all have enjoyed the giveaways and fun guests I’ve lined up though.  Lately, I’ve been working hard on prioritizing and finding the time to do the things I need to, not just the things I want to.  So, while I love my blog, it has been coming after working and writing and spending time with my family.  I know that if anyone understands, it’s all of you. The good news is I’m making great headway with 2MOS Vol 4 and will be diving in full force next week.  Thanks to some suggestions and advice from the brilliant Cabin Goddess, I’m rearing to go again.  In the meantime I’ve been working hard on my WIP White Chalk (I know, I haven’t told you anything about it, I think this one you’re just going to have to wait to find out more though) and The Adventures of Ninja and Bunny. Meanwhile, I’ve been busy with my Novel Publicity clients and when I can doing some fun things like FlashFiveFriday and writing reviews.  So I’m writing, I’m just not writing here.  As inspiration hits, I’ll keep posting, especially my how to write porn series Hopefully in the longterm this will end up with me having something exciting to announce about my upcoming projects.  For now, I’m off to help a certain 4th grader with her math homework and hopefully spend some time tonight finishing up the most recent chapter of White Chalk. Until then my... read more

A New Look at Adam & Eve PART II – Guest Post from Dr. Andrew Court, author of The Door Is Open

Last week Dr. Court shared his thoughts on The Rib with us. If you didn’t read it, check it out, it’s a total mind trip.  Today he brings us his thoughts on “The Fall”.         “The Fall” When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Notice here that Adam’s behavior in this story is completely passive. Throughout the scene, he is silent. The Serpent and Eve have their discussion, she decides to eat the fruit, she gives some to Adam, and he eats it too. That’s all it says! The story doesn’t say that Eve tempted Adam, and nothing in the narration or in his silence suggests that she did. There’s no indication he’s reluctant to eat the fruit, that his better judgment is overwhelmed by Eve’s treachery, or even that he thinks about it at all. He says nothing and he takes no initiative. It’s merely a passive act of acquiescence. Socrates will later describe the human soul as composed of three parts – the Thoughts of the Mind, the Emotions of the Heart, and the Needs and Appetites of the Body. He shows us that these parts are in a state of total chaos and disorder. To ‘perfect’ one’s soul means that each of these parts must perform its own proper task in a well-ordered harmony with the others. In the story... read more

Giveaway, Excerpt and Guest Post from Above the Universe Below author Elias Barton

Ok, so this is one I really want to read but I can’t in time for the blog tour.  Stupid TBR pile.  But this really looks cool, check it out.  If you do read it, let me know!  I wanna hear all about it! Title: Above the Universe Below Author: Elias Barton Genre: Fantasy, Dark, Publisher: Iron Glass Press Ebook/Paperback Pages: 332 Purchase: Amazon US (Kindle) | Amazon (Print) | Amazon UK (Kindle) Book Description: For two years running (2011 & 2012) Above the Universe Below was was a semi-finalist in Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and Publishers Weekly says: “Brilliant writing carries this pleasantly odd tale of an agoraphobic artist, Carder Quevedo… Carder’s road is not an easy one, but readers will be rooting for him in this unusual and beautifully written book.” An agoraphobic artist in our world but a grim reaper in another, Carder Quevedo hides at home, immersing himself in the paintings which commemorate the strange deaths he’s witnessed. He ventures into public only when necessary, scrambling to his hospital job to extract corneas from deceased donors or darting to the diner to share a meal with Darren, his only friend. That’s Carder’s existence – and he’s content. Until… Haika changes that. As the bored, beautiful owner of an art gallery – who also happens to be married – she stumbles into Carder in a chance encounter and soon becomes obsessed with his art. As they forge a quirky, electric relationship, Carder is reluctantly pulled into Haika’s social world of wealth, status and the peculiar characters that come with it. Carder is pushed further to the edge... read more
