One more day of vacation

Tomorrow will be the last day of my vacation, and damn has it been productive. I would estimate that I've written close to 15,000 words in the last four days. I've also managed to work out a few of the bugs in the book that doesn't want to get written. Damn it feels good.
However, on Tuesday I have to go back to work, and I'll bet I get to write once a week if I'm obviously there's a horribly strong feeling of dread as that day approaches.
Why do we have to live in a world where we have to chose money over happiness. I know that if I had more time to write, I'd be much happier, and I could make something of it. I don't know if I'd ever achieve the professional level, but I could do more than I'm doing now, and I know I'd be happier, which has to count for something.
Instead, I'm forced to do a job I hate just so I can pay my bills...and then one day I'll have to ask if it's really worth it or not..............

Cat site

I often visit Keith Graham's blog ( and he loves to post pictures of his cats. I don't take a lot of pictures, so there are only a few photos of the demon that lives with me...but I found this site, and just couldn't stop laughing.

I especially liked Doppler...

Laura Givens art show

Last night I went to the opening of an art show by local aritst Laura Givens. Laura and I met at MileHiCon last year where we did a couple of panels together. She had also done some artwork, including the door art for The Fifth Di..., for Sam's Dot. In addition, she's also the art editor for Tales of the Talisman, and in the most recent issue, she did the interior artwork for my story "The Ancient Ones."

She's got some amazing work, and I would strongly encourage you to head over to her site and check some of her stuff out.

Book signing

I've just gotten word that I'll be doing a book signing and possibly a reading at Who Else! Books here in Denver in June. Most likely it will be either the 4th or the 11th, but we're still working on the details.

Keep an eye tuned here for more info, and if you're going to be in Denver at the time of the signing, please stop by...

Story collection available as a pdf

My short story collection, Marionettes on the Moon, and other stories is now available as a pdf file from Nomadic Delirium Press. It sells for just $3.00.

Yes, the royalties aren't as good for me...but money's money, right?

Tattered Cover Bookstore

For those of you who live in Colorado, I'm sure you're familiar with The Tattered Cover Bookstore. For those of you who don't live in Colorado, you should become familiar with this store. It is one of, if not the best, independant bookstore around...certainly the best in Colorado.
The place is huge, although they will soon be moving...but the new place should be just as big.
Anyway, the point of all of this is that I'm now a Tattered Cover affiliate. On my main page, you will find a link where you can order books, and yes, I do receive a small payment for your orders...remember, it's the "Help J Escape from Subway Fund," so it's worth the order.

So, head on over to my site, and click on the link and at least have a look around. I think you'll be impressed. It has to say something for the place that Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy Award winning author Dan Simmons starts every book tour at this store.
