Ecotastrophe is an anthology that looks at the worst case scenarios of what could happen to our world if we continue the ecological destruction we are currently inflicting on the planet.

This is an anthology from Sam's Dot Publishing, which I edited. The book is set to be released on September 10th, but The Genre Mall is currently holding a pre-sale for the book...so you can order a copy early. Just go to http://www.genremall.com/anthologies.htm and order a copy today...

I also have to say that I think Scott Virtes did a great job with the cover. His artwork and his design...very nicely done...

Obviously not having to do the day to day grind has been very good for my writing. I've just finished the final draft on the third story I've written since leaving Grubway. That almost matches my productivity for all of last year. Granted, I did spend a lot of my writing time last year (what there was of it) working on the novel that doesn't want to get written.

Perhaps some time soon, I will get back to that, or maybe I'll work on another idea I have. Only time will tell, but the important thing is that I'm now writing every day, whereas when I was at the hellhole job, I was happy if I wrote once a week.

Funny thing is, it's kind of like a drug. I'm sure the other writers who visit this blog understand, but when you go without writing, it's like a part of you, usually the best part of you is dead...and that's not a good feeling...but the "fix" of printing up a new story...now that's powerful!!!

Blog listings

I've added a listing of the blogs that I read on a daily basis. You can find it on the right side of this page, right under the links to my books (which you really should buy!)

I tend to read a lot more blogs than I used to, but these are the ones that I try to hit every day. You should check them out, as they are some very interesting people...

Tour de France

I don't often post sports comments, since I'm not much of a sports fan, but I am a huge cycling fan. So, I just have to say that this is one of the best Tour de Frances that I've ever seen, and I've been watching them for about 20 years.

Who needs Lance? Without him to dominate the race, everything has been up in the air. Today there were so many break aways spread all over the mountains that they didn't have enough motorbikes and helicopters to keep track of everyone.

And anyone that says that cylcing is not a team sport should have watched today's stage. A huge breakaway went early in the stage, and as those riders were caught, they'd go to the front of the chase group and kill themselves trying to help their teammates that actually have the opportunity to win the race overall.

And what about Floyd Landis...another American winning in France...hope he can hold it all the way to Paris on Sunday!!!

New profile

Happy Spencer? I changed it.

In the good news department, I am writing again, and it reads more like the stuff I was working on a couple of years ago, which I think it a good thing. Most of what I've been writing lately has been adventure driven stories about characters stuck in situations they can't escape...and basically hating their lives. HAVE NO IDEA WHY!!!

Now, the stuff seems to have a little more depth, and even some writing instead of just my usual minimalist story telling...

New story

I've posted a new story on my site. This one is quite the departure for me. Rather than examining the darker side of humanity, this one is actually a humorous story...go figure...

At one time, one of the main characters, Robert Lendorin, was making an appearance in a new story I was working on...maybe now I can go back and finish it. It was kind of a Lendorin (you'll understand him after you read the story) meets The Lord of the Rings, but in the future.

I really like this character, and he needs to make an appearance in another of my stories at some time...
