I'll give you the story of the dream first, considering that's the most interesting part: I awoke this afternoon from a very strange dream that Dr. Seuss had publicly given my story a very high rating. However, the newspapers and magazines could not find the rating, so I had to travel to a mansion in which Dr. Seuss lived to gain access to his archives so that the rating could be released. The first two strange things about this dream: Firstly, Dr. Seuss has been dead for years. Secondly, if
Including facebook apps, widgets, and all that other stuff I don't get.
But anyway, at least they're finally admitting it could happen and are getting prepared for it, and preparing the public as well.
(provided, of course, that today isn't the end of the world minus the zombies, then it was all a waste of time, just like my high school history class.)

I am giving away an advanced copy of SHADOW'S LURE. Just swing by my website for details.
I'd just like to take the time to thank Jaidis Shaw from Juniper Grove for her time and lovely review.
4/5 trees. Life is good!
For those in the US, check out her site as she's got a give away going. There's only 3 copies of QOTD in the US (that I know of) so here's your chance!
Was lucky to go to a Trudi Canavan book signing last night. Well attended: about 100 or so people.
I love watching book signings. What impressed me most was the way that there were young and old, male and female. Some families had travelled from Birmingham to Nottingham for the experience, a distance of about 50 miles.
Some were buying new books, some had brought their collections to sign, some had pristine copies, others had well used and battered favourites.
Confirmed... book signing on the 9th of July in Collins book store Northland Shopping Centre.
Copies of my actual book in store... will have to take a photo
CreatorofPreten is my other account. I couldn't find my password one day ... and then I wanted to change my username anyway ... but she and I are the same person. Just thought I should let people know that. I wasn't sure where to put it.
And yes, this is simply horrid sentence structure. LOL
Now that the news on Timothy Ray Brown has broken, (and presuming it holds up to scientific scrutiny), is anyone thinking of Virtual Light besides me? I seem to recall that character even had a "Ray" in their name.
P.S. Bonus points to whoever puts the hardcover page that oblique reference to the AIDS vaccine posited by Gibson appears, so I can look it up for myself.
Well, after (on the second try) remembering to grab my copy of Virtual

I sort of view this as an innovation. I've never before seen an author sell any merchandise aside from their novel, unless, of course, you are J.K. Rowling or Stephanie Meyer, but I'm a little guy in the literary world, and no big company is distributing my merchandise to major stores.
Now available on my website is a CafePress shop that I have titled "Otherworld Village."
There are three designs currently available that you can buy as either a t-shirt, hoodie, baseball
It has been quite some time since I've laid eyes upon these pages, but I know I've missed this place.
I've taken to listening to Mur Lafferty's "I Should Be Writing" podcasts (very enjoyable by the way) and in her last release she asked the world to write down what activities in their day were important to them in honesty (as in,don't write down what you THINK should be important, but write down what it is you actually DO with your time). Any moments you have in between
So Iíve read the first seven of Terry Goodkindís Sword of Truth books after watching and enjoying the TV show Legend of the Seeker which was based (loosely) on those books.
Donít judge me.
Of the seven I read, I really enjoyed two (Stone of Tears and Soul of the Fire) I thought three were okay (Wizardís First Rule, Blood of the Fold and Faith of the Fallen) and I really hated the other two (Temple of the Winds and The Pillars of Creation
The works I am presently outlining are:
The Queen of Arcadia
The first is a discourse on World War II, intelligence, and optimism. It will be a novel - and yes, it is based off an album by Coldplay. I doubt it will get published, but I would still love to write it.
The second is an ancient poem-style epic about the founding of civilization following the discovery of a DJ rig in a glade in Arcadia. It discusses

I published my short story, "Lufer-Ma'ar and the Otherworld" to the Short Stories section of this website. I love talking about my stories, and considering this is the place to do that, I will do so.
This story was inspired by an odd dream I'd had about sink faucet travel (it was a Benadryl induced dream, considering I have quite severe allergies, and Benadryl is infamous for strange, vivid dreams) and a story that a co-worker had told me about his son having a dream that a doctor
