Just a Few Updates

At long last, Vengeance Is Mine is now available at Barnes and Noble.  Within a few weeks, it will also be available for the iBook and Kobo readers also.  Which is way cool!  I'll post those links when they are live.

Kevin and I are both finally satisfied with the movie version of  my short story, The Truth of Becoming.  We'll be sending copies out to cast and crew in the next few weeks, as well as submitting it to film festivals around the country.  We even have our first - non movie maker review and it was pretty good, so we're real happy with that.

Goddess willing and the creek don't rise - we'll be shooting Lost Souls in late July.  We just have our plates full until then.  More pre-production on this one than the others since we're going for some very specific camera shots.

And in the writing world - I hope to have Beneath the Tor available as an Kindle exclusive sometime in early June.  The sequel The XIII should be up sometime in July.  After the 90 exclusive period ends, they will both be available at all eBook outlets on the web and most probably in print also.

So much to do, so little time...but at least we stay busy.

Cleanliness is Next to...

I don't think there is anyone who hates cleaning house more than I do.  Now, granted I enjoy washing dishes - but pulling out the vacumn cleaner is one of those things that I just really don't like to do.  A few years ago, I thought about what might happen if a person stopped cleaning and picking up after themselves completely.  (And yes, I've seen a few of those homes online and on television).  From that, my short story "Cleanliness is Next to..." was born.

I like this story, it's stayed with me over the years and helped convince me to pull out that damn vacumn and use it.  It also reminded me to make sure to get rid of stuff otherwise laying about.

It is a short story, less than 2000 words - but the next time you don't want to clean, plop down the 99 cents and give it a read.  It may motivate you to do what you know you need to do.
