Politics of Path of Angels

Politics in Nacerma is a mismatch of several political systems, both governmental and civil. Nacerma is run by the Council, similar to a Board of Directors of a corporation. This Council is made up of two of representatives from each of the six regions. Similar to a communist regime, the representatives are not truly chosen

Have you ever read a book, then had something dramatic in your life happen, and then when you read the book again, the whole story seems to have changed? I rarely read a book more than once. It has to be something special for me to do that. It has to be that so thoroughly

Path of Angels - Coming Soon

Path of Angels has been a four year journey, starting with a bit of an idea and a couple characters for a Nanowrimo project. Nanowrimo didn’t quit work out for me, but I did get a good start on a rough draft. A few months later, I had a final rough draft. Then I moved

Getting Ready For Cosplay Season

This year, I plan to hit a few cons in cosplay. Unfortunately, I’m a bit out of shape at the moment.     This needs rectified if I plan to go as Red Sonya for Dragon Con (modified for a bit more coverage…I’d hate to blind people with my whiteness or end up giving a

I Think I Need A Shower

After all the mudslinging, I need a shower…yuck. As much as I love getting dirty, this type of mudslinging is not fun. It’s irritating. And I think I have eye strain from all of the eye rolling I did the last few days. So on to fun things, like books and pretty pictures and my

Mudslinging, Take 2: SP5 Edition

Wow. Here I thought the mudslinging would be between the snowflake camp and the two puppy camps. Apparently I was wrong.  It seems that as with all organizations without clear strong direction, things tend to go sideways. And dear God did they…over a blog post of recommendations of all things. When Larry Correia was leading the

Let The Mudslinging Begin

Once again, millions of people around the globe will ignore the Hugo Awards. (As they should. Who really wants to get in the middle of a pissing match between authors and readers of various political stripes anyway.) People will go on with their lives, read good fiction, watch good movies and not care one iota

Creating Bad Guys for Path of Angels

I love bad guys. They are by far my favorite characters to create, because they are a challenge. I am not by nature a mean person and I find it harder to get into their heads. But, I am curious, which probably makes my bad guys more demented than other writers. Their motivation usually falls

How To Alienate Family And Friends In 7 Easy Steps: A Fisking

I came across this eye-rolling piece published at Mic by Maria Solis. Her bio on the site says she’s a staff writer that covers “trending news” for the site. To call what she writes news is a huge stretch. Op-Ed or Yellow Journalism is a better descriptor of what she writes. The site itself claims
